It is basically personal prefrence really. I prefer to breed my team and go for whatever pokemon that has the nature that I need. Still that takes time and not everybody has that kind of time so PokeSav is their way to go. It is all the same if done right.

That is pretty much the competitive battling community's look on it. As long as they have legal stats and movesets, then they are considered fair.
I'd say. Besides, right now it's impossible to tell a bred Pokemon from a Pokesav-ed Pokemon. As they say, "What one doesn't know won't hurt one" or something. If you don't tell others that you made your Pokemon, they won't really care as long as your Pokemon looks
like it's bred.

Then those people should cheat back. Give your opponents a taste of their own medicine.
Either that or don't go against them.
I see that the main question has been largely left unanswered.
It depends on your prespective. Though maybe breeding some and Pokesav-ing some would be a choice. Actually, it really is up to you. Though if you Pokesav, you'd have lots more time to choose your team and hone your skills. Or do something else altogether.
