Now, i have not really done anything competitive in pokemon, due to my lack of having black / white version. However, i do intend on really getting into when black 2 / white 2 come out.

Now i know the concept and most aspect of EV's, IV's, and all sorts of other fun stuff of the sorts. I have good movepools for the pokemon i intend on using as well.

I'm just wondering if any of you have some advice for someone such as myself.

Hey bro, I was just like you, maybe 3 or so months ago. EV training (when not using Pokegen) is extremely tedious and frustrating sometimes. Then getting them up to level 100 is painstakingly slow. But when it's all said and done, it's a wonderful feeling, to be with your favorites and taking down other teams.

So what I'm saying is, no matter how difficult it gets, never give up. You'll get there.

more or less.

back when i frequented the pony thread when it wasn't cancerous and full of faggots (inb4 when wasn't it?) i always posted latias.

so it's always just kinda been a part of me.

I think I'll just stick with B/W battles for now...
Anyhow, you ARE a guy, right? The fact that you post as a female-only pokémon is a little confusing to me ._.

You can play competitively on Pokemon Showdown or Pokemon Online, though only Showdown follows Smogon tiers

smogon tiers?

www.smogon.com/
Smogon is the biggest competitive pokemon community, and they make the general tiers, which are basically classification of what pokemon can be used against and are good against what pokemon
eg, a Charizard cant compete with a Volcarona really, so Charizard falls into the Never Used tier while Volcarona is in Over Used

I find it silly how half the pokemon i use are under used or rarely used, yet it boasts each of their abilities that they can do a lot more than given credit for.

guess I know how to make a team, more or less.

Well, given the right support and facing a favourable team any offensive pokemon can end up with a sweep
Most teams are built around either a main wall or sweeper

my team focuses on all of them equally, more or less.

no sweeper, and the closest to a tank would probably be my latias

People dont breed and train their pokemon...
They use PokeGen or PokeSav

You can try to use this if you have a real copy

is there any way i can get a virus from this?

...Virus on your DS?
no.
And if youre using an R4 or Acekard, you can use the legit Pokegen with your .sav file

and here i thought people trained and bred their pokemon manually.

i could imagine some dirty fuckers just maxing out each stat because they can and just wrecking you because they can.

Well, I don't intend on using this, i like having the self satisfaction of building all my pokemon myself.

Quick question.

the pokegen thing is for an emulator, not the real game, right?

You edit the save files, which are used for emulators, but are also used by flashcarts, if you know what those are

<---My opinion about Pokegeners.

It takes me weeks to develop a team, breed for abilities, EV train and then get to level one hundred while it takes them a few minutes. I wouldn't do it though, even if I knew how.
