    I train my pokemon equally, the level difference is about 1-4 levels.

    I'm restarting my White however and I'm gonna do a Anime style plathrough, so im not gonna evolve everything to its final stage.

    Nowadays I like to train not just a team of six, but a large training team of anywhere from 30 to 50. I keep them all at pretty much the same level; in fact, if I'm traveling somewhere and a Pokemon gains a lot of levels from trainer battles, I'll swap that Pokemon out for a different one so it can get the chance to catch up. Whenever possible, I try to balance this training team so that I don't have too many Pokemon of a certain type. And I sometimes take a Pokemon off the team if it's being too much of a bother to train or if I just don't like it anymore.

    This method is quite time-consuming, but it allows me to customize my team for the situation: i.e. if I'm about to battle Elesa, I'll put a lot of Ground-type Pokemon on my team. Especially since a Pokemon can only learn up to four moves at a time, I feel that training multiple Pokemon allows me to experiment with different battle styles, which I like.

    Well, for starters, I am a fighting type specialist--I only use fighting type pokemon. I have since 1998 (with the exception of starters, but if it does not evolve into a fighting type, I ditch it in the PC as soon as I catch a fighting pokemon).

    I am an avid level-grinder. As a rule, all my party pokemon must be at least 10 levels ahead of the current gym leader. Before I take on the Elite Four, I generally like to have all my party pokes to level 75 or higher.
    I will be on here very, very rarely. The account is not dead, per se, but I will not be on often. This has become a den of hatred, hostility, and anger. It is not the SPPF it was when I joined, and I really dislike coming here. To those of you who were nice to me and were my friend, thank you. Goodbye.

    I tend to become attached to a pokemon other than my starter from the getgo; I keep my starter around for a while but I tend to pick a pokemon out in the wild I really like and just overtrain that one with sort of a backup team, haha. I caught a Riolu near the beginning of White 2 and he grew into a Lucario that basically just bulldozed everything in his path, lmao.

    The starters in recent gens just haven't really appealed to me, I guess.
    Basically I treat the team I make to beat the game as my "story mode" team, and then after I finish the game I will proceed to catch/breed/trade in order to get my new competitive battlers/shinies if its a new gen, and transfer my previous competitive team/shinies from the last game. I only use my competitives to battle i/g if they are already fully EV trained. Its a real pain trying to convert the pokemon you've trained during gameplay into competitive battlers, since youre forced to absorb EVs from the trainers you have to battle, and finding/using berries is tedious. X.x; I just prefer to enjoy the story of the game with a set of casual pokes so I don't have to deal with the hassle of tracking their EVs all throughout.
    I wonder if anyone here is just less lazy than I am and actually used their "story" team and turned them into a competitive team? haha.

    I'm not an obsessive shiny collector, I only really collect the ones I particularly like the palettes of or my favorite pokemon (which usually results in my entire competitive teams being shiny, I'm usually pretty lucky about getting decent IVs and nature ;p , especially when masuda method breeding like a maniac ) I will never hack my pokemon, ever. I had someone do it for me once and really, it just takes all the fun and satisfaction right out of it.

    I should also mention I will spend hours scavanger hunting for all the items in the entire game. I'm not sure why I do this. Most of it has to do with just needing a specific item for training, shards for move tutor and TMs for building movesets; it usually results in me just literally hunting for everything else along the way. I've got like 10 heart scales or something.. when I see an item and cant reach it from where I am, I get really antsy and HAVE to find out how to get it. Lol.

    ANyway long post is long, doubt anyone will read this but it was a good little self analysis, rofl.

    On my very first game, Pokemon XD, I ditched my starter (a Jolteon) early on and overtrained two other Pokemon (a Walrein and an Aggron). From then until my latest game, White 2, I kept six Pokemon in even rotation. On White 2, I kept twelve Pokemon in rotation, and threw in six more (two that got booted off for being too weak and four new ones) after I beat the game. I personally think that playing this way is a lot more fun than just using six, since it means that your Pokemon are always low enough level that the game is challenging but that you almost always have a type advantage against any given Gym Leader.

    I ended up with Serperior (Riddle), Leavanny (Stitch), Ampharos (Tesla), Excadrill (Dream World, Jules), Lucario (Isis), Genesect (Event), Braviary (Defiant, Dakota), Volcarona (Relic castle, Sekhmet), Cinccino (Skill Link, Mr. Doom), Darmanitan (N's), Azumarill (Azuela), Banette (Eldridge), Audino (Caught early on and boxed partway through until post-game, Doc), Beheeyem (Same as Doc, replaced him and was herself replaced by Eldridge, Luna), Tyranitar (Texas), Toxicroak (Batu), Beartic (Irina), and Latias (Grace).

    When I first started, I used to only train my starter. Now I just put it in the PC and trade over an Eevee, or something.

    I always like to train a well-rounded team, so don't ever see me doing any solo runs or focusing on my starter too much. I also tend to pick team members with good stats and movepools, because type coverage can make a huge difference.
