Which makes it less about skill? And therefore not a challenge, and therefore, not fun...
You play football and sure the guy might be better than you, but if you try your best and put the effort in you can have fun and walk away proudly.
Before in pokemon, when I was playing red in the playground you'd link up the cables and have a good time because you'd both worked hard with your pokemon, but you both had a level playing field more or less and you had to type match, react to their team etc.
Sure now people put a hell of a lot of effort in, but it's not true effort. My little brother is one of the EV breeding faggots.
He'd be watching some douchebag on youtube and not even playing his game.
What he'd do is breed...
Not even training his pokemon, he'd jam a 5p into the gap in his 3DS where the joystick meets the body and just walk against a wall for hours on end hatching eggs.
Not even caring about his pokemon at all, just hatching eggs and not much else.
The EV system was a nice idea, but a terrible one.
The pokemon series has always explicitly been about camaraderie, friendship, and working together, and also caring for your digital companions.
You know in the early series where there was that one episode where team rocket had hundreds of pokemon in cages.
That's basically what EV trainers are doing. Breeding unwanted pokemon and shoving them into boxes to rot, or releasing them without a care in the world.
EV trainers don't give a shit about the spirit of the game.
Again I will allude to football, the diving situation in particular.
Footballers go down at the slightest brush now. It's not technically illegal, but it's not in the spirit of the game.
If a striker feels a touch on his shoulder and hits the deck and gets a penalty for his efforts it just encourages bad sportsmanship.....
It's the same with pokemon. The game was meant to be enjoyed and teach kids about friendship, teamwork, and love. But nope, faggoty EV youtubers are teaching people that their pokemon don't mean shit and are just either breeding slaves or their gladiator slaves.
An EV trainer wouldn't think twice about deleting his save.
A true trainer wouldn't think twice about keeping the same save and buying another game just to keep the memories he shared with his pokemon alive.
There's a lower chance of winning that's not technically against the game's rules, but it's not in the spirit of the game. That's why it kills fun.
These people aren't out for a good battle where they fight their best with their companions they've raised from the start. They're out there purely for stats with their slaves they have force bred so that they have a higher chance of winning without the skill it takes to use a base pokemon.

As an EV trainer and IV breeder I can say two things
It takes less than an hour to get 5ivs which is good enough for most people
I'm JUST as attached to my shuckle as I am any other Pokemon
You think people aren't attached to a Pokemon they spent tons of time making perfect?
I love my perfect/shiny pokemon much more than I ever loved anything I had before I started this.
I started new games ALL the time to do new story, now, I don't want to because all of my hard work including stats and scores will be gone.

>An EV trainer wouldn't think twice about deleting his save.
Sorry what? WHAT? You're saying the trainers who put even MORE time into their games would be less hesitant about deleting them? Unless you're specifically referring to save-scumming for a good starter pokemon, this is complete and utter BS.
#19 - pokemonstheshiz (04/22/2015) [-]
I think you meant IVs, not EVs. EVs are the ones you get when you train/super train.
And that's still a really dumb excuse. If you want to actually play competitive battles, yeah you have to breed almost perfect pokemon usually. But if you just want to battle your friend for fun, there's no need. If you're playing battle spot, you're still probably fine in lower ranks or on unrated matches.
Also, breeding is incredibly easy at this point, it might take an hour or so to get a perfect pokemon, maybe longer in some cases.
>calling people online who have put more time and effort into their team "not true trainers"

Before i say anything, i want to convey that im not trying to argue, if anything i say comes off as pompous or mean, thats not how i wanted to seem.
I see where your coming from, but you have to remember that its just a game. Not everyone gets that same kind of attachment the you do, and just because someone breeds their pokemon like that doesn't mean they are completely detached. I for one am very connected with some of the pokemon ive used, Chansey for example, i use chansey and not her (arguably) better version Blissey because i like chansey better.
A lot of people loved pokemon as a child and as they grew up, and they seeked new challenges, namely, defeating other players instead of singleplayer. You could fight other people with un-trained pokemon, but what fun is there is losing constantly.
As for skill, ev and iv training made the game MORE about skill. If you and somebody are using the same pokemon with the same moves, and he has more speed then you (this is assuming neither of you trained, just by luck it has better stats) then your's will lose 9/10 times. If both pokemon have equal stats through breeding, then your desicions matter more.

The picture shows one of the Elvish writing scripts, Tengwar. Although I've heard that one is wrong and this one is more correct.
It's a different script, you wouldn't have a letter "c" translation, but instead use a "k" translation for hard c and an "s" translation for a soft c, if you want to translate an English word into Tengwar script.
