Tournaments are meh, sometimes~

Meh. I'm not to big on tournaments.

Really, I don't understand the whole "categorizing Pokemon in the blah blah blah blah tier". I mean, imho, I think it was established because people kept getting beat by them.

If I hosted a tournament, the only things that WOULDN'T be allowed are the MAIN legendaries. I'll go by LOGIC. Really, if a Pokemon is overused to you, DONT USE IT YOURSELF. And then comes Smogon XDDD

I always have people tell me "go on Smogon, don't train your pokemon like that, blah blah blah". Really, I MYSELF hate going on Smogon; since I will train my Pokemon up to their fullest potential however I see fit ^^

And I don't need tier-obsessed people to scold me for "equipping the wrong item" or some other shit XDD

So I maintain this steady team, here:



And I manage okay. I dun care bout the tier system, so my friends and I just battle however we want xD

    The teir system is in place so pokemon that aren't overused get a chance to see the light of day in lower teirs. You're allowed to use any pokemon that you want that isn't uber in OU, it's not like UU, RU and NU pokemon are banned. What's the problem?

    @TheMissingno. It's because there are snobby competitive players who mock you for using low tier Pokemon in OU. An example will be a player being mocked for using Feraligatr in OU instead of Gyarados, who outclasses it for being faster and stronger.

    No, it's because some pokemon are simply stronger than others, so some are used more than others. It has nothing to do with people being "snobby."

    Meh, I don't care for tiers. I have been told that I suck because of the Pokémon I was using (a Manectric) before though.

    Why is that because of tiers? It sounds like you were just talking to an asshole.

    Firstly, good team.
    Secondly, Pokemon like Kyurem and Mew aren't broken.Banning legendaries just because they are so is illogical and ridiculous.Its like saying that Blaziken shouldn't be banned just because it is a starter.
    Finally, if you don't like tiers yourself, why don't you start your own ladder or tournament?

    @Ghetsis-Dennis

    Firstly, not all competitive battlers are snobby, okay?
    Secondly, You just said it yourself that Feraligatr is outclassed by Gyarados.
    Finally, rather than ranting about it, just challenge that "snobby" battler and defeat his OU team with a UU team and prove your point.

    @PkmnGreen

    You must be talking to a YouTube troll.
    Seriously,it doesn't matter which pokes as long as you can win.

    If I could, I would. But then again, how many people would follow that tier. Besides, you miss the point. I want some tiers to be dissolved. Cause frankly, if it were real life, chances are you (with your Sceptile or Manectric) will meet a trainer with a Salamence or Garchomp. So, keep it real. You can't ban pokemon for being pokemon.

    Well, this isn't real life, so I am not going to meet a trainer.
    Which tiers you want dissolved and why?
    And if you can't ban the pokes for being pokes, the same applies to the legendaries.
    Tiers should be based on logic. If a poke makes a tier over-centralising, it should be banned.
    And well, its not that smogon or Po force you to play by their tiers.You can always create your own tiers.
    If your tiers are good, people will follow them, I am sure about that.

    Hmm... very good point. But, I'm saying; like the Uber and OU tiers. Those are tiers for strong pokemon who are used alot, but who cares. And the UU tier. Underused? So what? Who cares, really?

    But true, Legendaries are (While super powerful and illogical) are okay. But you know, let's be reasonable. What are the chances of you having six Arceus's?

    Firstly, I know a user from my past forum who complained about the players who told him to not use Wigglytuff and Zangoose and replace them with Blissey and Scizor, who are not his favorites.
    Secondly, Once Feraligatr gains back Ice Punch as a move tutor and becomes available as female, Gyrarados will be facing stiff competition from with the moveset of Dragon Dance, Waterfall, Ice Punch, and EQ.
    Thirdly, I don't have an account from Smoddy (I believe that's the name of the program) to challenge one, and I refuse to make an UU team (I want a mix team).

    With trading, everything is possible.: P
    I think you are misunderstanding tiers. You CAN use UU pokes in OU.You can use any pokes in Ou which aren't UBERS. A very good system I would say.

    @Ghetsis-Dennis

    So?Does that make every competitive battler a troll?
    I am a fan of feraligatr myself.However we aren't debating whether it will be good or not.
    Its called Pokemon Online. You can always download it, and you don't need an account for it.
    And you can always make a mixed tier team.That means that you can use UU pokes in OU.
    However what i say still stands. Prove your point rather than saying it.

    ok, so i see that we are in agreement. But there are batttlers who will use only OU pokemon BECAUSE ITS THEIR CHOICE TO DO SO. You can always do things differently.
