If it was Photoshopped, then why did you just edit your post? :P
Competitive Pokemon is really hard for us hipsters. With games based on skill more then strategy, your skill level matters more then the units/weapons/etc you're using, and you can be really good with even shitty weapons (well, sometimes). But in Pokemon, it's really hard to use quite a few Pokemon to good success. I consider myself better then most competitive battlers especially when it comes to acting older then seven years old, yet when in practice I only preform slightly above average. This is because I can't stand using Pokemon I don't like, and I enjoy trying out strange and unique sets. These almost never work, though.
SO HE ADMITS IT!
Indeed. When it comes down to the nitty gritty in competitive gaming, the tools you've to work your skill with really are just as important as said skill. No one wins AC:III tournaments by using Money Bomb, Decoy and Disruption. Top'a the class Ubers teams are never composed solely or even mostly of non-ubers. Sub-par strategies ya intend t' have fun with might win ya battles with randoms, but in tournaments? Not so much.
I'm sure ya now understand why my teams end up the way they are. I've always slammed on the gas t' drive on towards victory, even in my humble competitive beginnings of Emerald's Battle Frontier, and that's 'cause havin' fun usin' my favorites ain't enough. I wanted victory as well... and sometimes ya can't have both.
