    Not sure what you mean by this? overused and underused compared to what everyone else uses? i don't know what everyone else uses, but i guess if raticates and zubats/woobats count, then yes i used underused pokemon.

    I use which ever I like. You just need a good tactic and you can beat anything with whatever you use. Of course some will be better than the others if you follow smogon sets, they are designed to be like that.

    Because I could care less about competitive battling, at least as far as tiers go.

    I tend to lean toward Pokemon.

    Preferably good ones.

    I use Pokemon I like. And there are VERY FEW Pokemon I like in OU, or at least very few that aren't just used to set up weather effects.

    I like using what helps me win, kinda of my way of having fun.

    I tend to not use my favorites because personally it means your not being truly competitive if using them unless their Pokemon that can build a great synergy core.

    I prefer OU, but I have already used UU sometimes.

    In competitive play you should use only OU, regardless if your favorite Pokemon is a UU.

    UU, although I generally use whatever I want. Really, I fit better into NU.

    NU Gravity assault!

    I actually don't do much competitive stuff, but I actually did once, among other things, make an NU Gravity team. It lost. Horribly. Repeatedly.

    I pretty much use both, I nearly always have a flygon on my team and then I try to use pokemon that i never had in the past.

    Some pokemonare better than people think due to smogon bans. For instance almost anything with abilites Swift Swim, Sand veil or Moody. Anything with access to minimise. Anything with 1hit KO moves while can set up effective stall. Basically I wouldnt take the tiers seriously if you intend to play on wifi/single player as they are lawless and alot of UU/NU pokemon can thrash the "follow the smogon rules" OU pokemon if played "unfairly" every time.

    Not this. ...Seriously. If you're going to use only OU Pokemon, your choices will be SEVERELY limited. Besides, UU Pokemon can be really useful as well, despite what some may think.

    you realize that Smogon bans those things -because- they are generally considered overpowered and cheap, right?

    and that's why Random Matchup is stupid, right?
