Love for All the 649

    Most of the Smogon hate comes from people that don't get that there's a difference between the in-game side of pokemon (where you can sweep anything when you're 10 levels higher) and competitive pokemon (where the pokemon are at the same level and you face a human opponent, not some computer that will never switch). It's right in their mission statement.

    What Smogon says hasn't had an effect on me for using pokemon like Luxray, Ursaring, Whiscash (MVP of my recent Platinum playthrough), Swana, Cacturne, Manectric, Wailord, and Crustle on my playthroughs. But my competitive teams? Yes I will look for better pokemon than something cute or gimmicky. I try not to bring a knife to a gun fight.

    ^ Same here. I don't do EV training anyway. I used Musharna and Liepard even though they both were weak.

    I never liked Smogon and the way they deal in Online battling. Personally, they rate all the good Pokémon bad and make up s--t about them to make the general public think their not worth it.

    Some of my favorite pokemon ever are considered bad! The pokemon team I bonded with way back in Sapphire version was Chimecho, Armaldo, Milotic, Glalie, and Camerupt, all of which are apparently bad. I don't think so!

    Armaldo was my most-used pokemon ever. He could fit into almost any strategy. Speaking of which, in double battles I would use him and Glalie because I could use Glalie's Explosion to take out pokemon I otherwise couldn't handle (Suicune, Heracross, who according to smogon is also bad, which I completely DO NOT BUY at all - he scares me).

    Milotic was by far my most reliable pokemon. When it came down to the end, I could usually rely on him to pull out a win. Compare it to Iris's Excadrill in the anime - she uses her other pokemon, but when there's a really tough battle, she sends it out to destroy!

    And then there's the other pokemon that I love but never ended up training... Bronzor, Tentacool, Beedrill, Vigoroth, Kirlia, Magcargo, Butterfree, Clamperl... the list goes on but those are the main ones I think are awesome.

    I like all the pokemon in the game. There isn't a one I find dumb or stupid. I even use jynx sometimes on the random match up and I kick ***** with her..... most of the time.

    I tend to use Deoxys for pwning trainers. He is a very cool guy, and is the best Pokémon of all time. :)

    I try my hardest to love all of the Pokémon we currently have, but it's a little hard for me to feel love for every single one of them.

    When you all say "Smogon says its bad" are you all talking about reviews for OU or what?
