    Karen loyalist checking in.

    But the breed of Karenite you're referencing sounds like the sort that uses it as an excuse to spam legendaries, which is pretty pathetic. I'm more of the sort that spends hours trying to come up with ways to make Beedrill viable on Battle Spot just because he's so darn awesome-looking.

    I don't have (much of) a problem with Smogon's tiers, I think barring Ubers from standard battles is pretty reasonable (I'll admit I've never liked the evasion clause, but meh). My only beef with Smogon is that when you actually battle their players in-game (not on Showdown), most of their teams are hackmon because they've all been taught that 6IV pokemon are required for competitive play but most of them are unwilling to breed them legitimately.

    That's been my experience, at least. Anywho, your beef with the Karenites you've encountered is understandable, and I'd hope my beef with the Smogon'ers I've encountered is reasonable to you as well. If you're tired of battling Xerneas/Mega-Mewtwo/Arceus/Genesect/Darkrai/Rayquaza teams ("but those are my favorites...!" *eyeroll*), then I feel your pain.

    I suppose I am a Karenite in some aspects, then. I know the difference between a usable Pokemon and one that's not going to be winning many battles, but I do mainly use Pokemon that I like over "standard" teams.

    I'm guessing people who follow Karen of the Elite Four's methods of training Pokémon - those who train and raise their favorites instead of just the most popular in competitive play.

    Edit: Beaten. Just what happens when blog posts aren't displayed right away.

    People who believe in E4 Karen's quote about "strong Pokémon, weak Pokémon, there is no such thig, truly skilled trainers try to win with their favorites" not sure if that's the exact quote but it's the gist of it. I respect Karenites very much, I don't respect people who spew uninformed and condescending hate at the group I am a part of (Smogonites)

    Oh god, I read this before. Or, kinda did. I just saw "Skywalker" at the end then and was like what the crap was that? I now read t again. Oh, it was referring to Lukas, and Luke and stuff. Too bad I used Luke Skywalker puns too xD Well, not directly but eh.

    ...heh, this will basically be even more extreme version of my run, just with different pokemon. Atleast your team won't totally suck.

    I mean, we both have Chimchar. It has basically 3 moves. Mine has Mach Punch instead (Not much better than Rock Smash) + Soloing Roark is a must. -.-

    Atleast you have a flyer.

    We both have a Lopunny. Expect mine will only evolve if it soloes Flint's Lopunny. :K

    I hope you get a Carnivine. :D
