They do make battling look alot harder on the anime than it does on the games, but in actual fact they make it hard in a different way, by giving species different stat qualities and giving a limited choice of very powerful Pokemon. I just think that no matter how much you effort value a Smeargle or a Ditto, it will never match up to a species with more generous stats. I defenitly agree with the thing about Deoxys and Mewtwo. Deoxys attack forme is usually down in one if it's hit by a dark/ghost move, but that IF you hit it. I've taught myne Psychic, Grass Knot and I can't remember the other two moves but they generally work. I generally lose when people copy those Pokemon stratedgy guides off of things like Serebii's Pokemon of the week.
