... It ain't a southern accent, not that I blame ya for mistakin' it as such (someone called it a pirate accent once... ;______; ). My slight accent is Eastern. It ain't an audibly obvious Brooklyn tang or nothin', but this is how I speak informally. Cuttin' off a syllable here 'n there, shortened words, etc.
Put it this way: if I typed as I talk naturally when I was still a newbie, people would regard me as odd at the very least.
Oh, you're training Pokemon in the actual game. Yeah, that's the most genuine way to go about it, though I'm far too lazy to EV train/breed for egg moves/etc anymore. Which is why I have almost completely migrated to online battle simulators.
You could try it, though if you don't want to I guess I could throw together some Pokemon I've trained in game to form a somewhat mediocre team.
