Default What Kind of Trainer Are You?

I'm not sure if there's a topic like this before... If there was, sorry...

So, what kind of trainer are you? In-game and in competitive/friend battles?

I'm both for in-game and competitive battling.

I choose the Pokemon I'm attracted to, rather than Pokemon with high stats, and then movesets/items for competitive use. I don't care if they're weak, because I will one day prove to the world that anything can happen.

I've never really used "strong" Pokemon, but it's hard for my friend, who does use strong Pokemon, to beat me.

I personally think it's annoying if people say I'll get beat up because of stats. They're just assuming it. They don't know it.

I agree with all your opinions 100%. In fact, one of my favorite lines are "nothing is impossible", so it's awsome you think that.
I an a Water Trainer, as you can see in my sig. And I'm not bad either, considering my record.

Interesting Thread. o.O

I'm an in-game trainer who picks Pokemon based on looks and stats.

I'm an in-gammer that chooses pokemon based on how cool they are and if they have decent stats.

Water and Ice types are my specialty, if I do say so myself.

I choose strategic pokemon I like. So, for example, I usually only play Blue and Silver, so my team is usually:

Gyarados (Always)
Blastoise/Feraligatr
Pikachu/Amphrous
Vulpix/Ninetails
Kadabra/Lugia
Zapdos/Umbreon

I also love water pokemon. And I usually get attached to the ones I catch and raise from early on. So, in my Silver, I have a level 84 Jigglypuff, because I caught it at level 2 and just decided to use it early instead of my crappy Ratatta, so now its uber powerful, lol XD

Raticate can murder if you use it properly. Jigglypuff, too. I discovered that because it helped me beat Lance (even if it was 20 levels higher than them XD).

I guess I'd be an ace trainer, too. Or champ. But there would be too many champs, ne?

I typically find ways to implicate my favorite Pokemon with the highest sense of strategy. For example, I love Poison types, so I assembled a Poison team of Pokemon I like, and evoked a sense of strategy within their setup.

I'm an in-game trainer strictly, because I am too underconfident to participate competitively. And I agree with what you say about choosing Pokemon you like. Since I hardly play the games anymore, even now, I always tend to fall in love with certain Pokemon and use them despite their stats or movesets.

So, yeah. =P I don't give a crap if my Pokemon suck. Lookit my first notable Pokemon game, Sapphire, where my beloved Ninetales had all Fire-type moves. Sure, it's dumb, but I luff him even if he sucks competitively. I'm one of those people who like Pokemon because of its creative aspects.

In-game, mostly.
Like Comexback, my confidence is too low to participate in Wi-fi battles.
But I will gladly beat the crap out of my friends Pokemon, and other people's Pokemon in town tournaments as well. ;3
Because most of them don't even care about EVs or natures. XP
(or don't know what they are)

And I am a huge sucker for my favorite Pokemon.
Whether they suck or not, I will still use them. <3
For instance, I was once compelled to use Delibird because it was never used and it looked pwnsome. <3 (and needed moar love 0:)

I don't really play competitively as everyone seems to use the same Pokemon all the time and I'm not a very good strategist anyway.

I always choose to use my favourite Pokemon which are usually picked based on looks and personality (from the anime). Stats don't matter to me in the least because in-game you can win with any Pokemon as long as you train them enough. ^^

I'm strictly gamer as well...

OHMYGOSH!! I do that too. My Empoleon is practically ALL Water-Type moves (one steel type move.. but yeah). I usually pick my Pokemon and leave them with their Type moves. But I level them up so high that it doesn't really matter what type moves they have, they always kick bum in the games.
... But I don't want to play competitively, because then I'd get my bum kicked... hehe.

If any trainer, I'd want to be either an Ace Trainer (one of the Sinnoh ones... they look so cool!), or just a simple Pokemon Trainer. If you're a Pokemon Trainer, you can choose how you look.. or, well, if there was that option on the games (I wish), then you probably would be able to choose for yourself, right?
