If you would be a pokemon trainer would you accept every challenge? Even if your challenger would be very arrogant or annoying in any other way? What if he or she was much weaker than you? Would you still fight him/her? You know, maybe that would be to tough on him/her. Or in some cases the challenger would be way better than you. Would you fight him/her eventhough there would be a good chance you will lose? Or you could have any other reason to not fight with everyone. If you have, it would be very appreciated if you told me.:D

Accepting every challenge that is presented to you will alway help so get better. I always accept challenges no matter what the situation is. Even if the oppenent is much weaker than you and unexperienced, you give them the oppurtunity to learn from people who are better than them. Normally im more comfortable accepting challenges where i know the trainer is much better than me, as i can put my true skills to the test and even if i was to loose i could learn from my mistakes.

If I was challenged I would battle usually, if I didn't it probably be because I had something to do or my Pokémon just came from a hard battle and I didn't want to further exhaust them. If a Trainer was obviously weaker than me I probably battle them but I hold back a little to teach them a few things, maybe even offer them help in getting there Pokémon tougher then when they do toughen them up I battle them again to see how far they've come.

if they are arrogent no i dont accept challenges from jerks
Well, I probably except a battle from such a person to teach them a lesson for being a jerk by either just being a jerk in general, misusing there Pokémon or whatever.

I would except every challenge because I'm always up for a good challenge. But I prefer trainers with more experience because this can teach both me and the Pokemon and give us more experience

I would never back down from a challenge, except if my oponent was significantly weaker than me. But if the trainer insisted on challenging me, I would except.

Well, if I was strong enough, I would accept any trainer's Pokemon battle. But if I wasn't and my Pokemon were weak or injured, I wouldn't. I would also not challenge any weak Pokemon trainers, only ones who were as strong as me or stronger than me.

If I knew the trainer was stronger than me I would do it for a challenge.
If they're around the same level I would accept.
But if they were a lower trainer I'd probs reject their challenge.

Others reasons I may reject are:
my pokemon's hp is low
Can't be bothered
doing an important mission/task/job

Yeah, I think I would accept every challenge. Why not? Experience is experience, and you need all you can.

I probably wouldn't accept every challenge. If my Pokemon were in critical condition, then no, I wouldn't, but I'd accept most of them.

Maybeah, but if the 'enemy' had a Azurill, Bellossom, Cyndaquil or a Torchic, I wouldn't accept it, I'd hug the Pokemon instead of battle them.

I'd accept every challenge except for ones that I or the opponent have a highly significant advantage (like in level or critical HP). I also wouldn't accept if my Pokemon was in any condition, though I would find it heartless for a person to even ask if they were >_> Even if the person was super arrogant, I'd battle; though I'd be pretty pissed if I lost XD

Yes, I would accept them, the only reason I wouldn´t accept one is if my pokemons are poisoned, hurt...

I wouldn't accept just any battle esp if my pokemon were injured or too tired to battle. I also wouldn't battle trainers who would be far weaker than me because I think it's just waisting time.. I know it sounds rude but if they wanted to learn from experienced trainers they could still choose somebody else. Oh and as far as rude and arrogant trainers are concerned.. I would battle them immediately because I'm a very proud person and cannot stand it being put down by some jerks.. and besides if the jerks mistreated their pokemon there's just a reason more to fight them because I just can't stand pokemon violence!

Mmm... if I remember correctly, Pokemon trainers have to accept all challenges, it being common courtesy and such. I would accept all challenges. I can clearly see myself not wanting to battle a weak(er) trainer because I wouldnt want to waste the time with the boring battle (that was harsh, lol), but I'd still accept. Naturally, I'd go easy on him/her unless he/she preferred I didnt; even so, I'd still hold back a little for their Pokemon. I'd love a battle that I could go all out in, a battle that gets the adrenaline going. You know, where your so into the battle that you zone out from everything else, and its only you, your opponent, and the Pokemon. I wouldnt mind losing to a stronger respectable trainer.

Now, I don't think its all too great to want to battle a trainer just because he is a jerk and you want to teach him a lesson or get back at him. That sounds like a personal grudge, and imo, Pokemon battles are out of place there. And I definitely dont see the point in wanting to battle a trainer because he mistreats Pokemon. Thats not helping anything. Something like mistreatment of Pokemon needs to be taken up in with the trainer and some higher authority, like Officer Jenny.

Well, it's kind of an unwritten law that Pokemon Trainers must accept all challenges issued by another Pokemon Trainer, but personally, I would never accept every challenge I'm offered. I'm impatient at worst and sometimes training and battling isn't on my mind.

Challenges? Eh, I'd take the most I guess. Weak challengers are good for getting a feel of how your team works and just plain gathering exp and strong ones allow me to improve on my strategy and prediction skills as well as pinpoint any serious flaws in the team (Speaking of NB experience here, but the same would pretty much apply if it were for real. ^^). Arrogant challengers? Oh, I'd definitely take those on, particularly if it's obvious that they're all talk. Bringing the reall puffed up ones down in a 6 0 kind of way is just too satisfying. xD The times I wouldn't battle would be...

1. If it's blatantly obvious that I couldn't measure up to my opponent and the situation didn't force me to battle.

2. If my pokémon weren't in the shape to battle. (Although I'd have to make an exception in forced situations like emergencies and suchlike)

3. If I have something more important to do or an appointment to keep.

4. If my challenger had some other agenda than just plain battling me.

5. If the battleground was rigged in my opponent's favour, specifically against me, or a combination of the two. The exception of forced situations applies here too.

6. If there were ridiculously high stakes involved in the battle. (Again, I would have to make an exception for the times when the battle was forced, say...if my opponent had staked something that I desperately needed to get)

7. If my challenger was a pathetic whiner who had spent the last two weeks challenging me again and again just because he/she lost against me before.


If it were an IRL thing, I guess that virtually no experienced/famous trainer would have the time for every challenge being sent their way, so yish. I generally try to meet the demand, though. ^^

I would most of the time, unless for some reason I wasn't feeling up to it... Plus, battling isn't the only thing on my mind when it comes to Pokemon...

But most of the time I'd except challenges, yes.

I have to admit, you have a point there. Using pokemon just to teach some jerk a lesson can very well be called pokemon abusement. If we ppl have problems then we should just deal with them ourselves. It's just like if ppl used pokemon in war battles. That's just using the pokemon abilities without respecting them and that's not how things should work.

if u r talking about the game then you basically don't have a choice since u cant run away from it

if u r talking about the real life then you accept them cuz u need more exp...

I may not fight every trainer I saw. If I knew they were like, a bazillion times stronger than I was, heck no. XD; I'd have to say if I knew I could beat the other person, of course I'd have to take them out. Come on, it'd be their funeral for challenging me in the first place. XD

I never back down from a good battle. Most of the time I couldn't care less if I won, because I play to have fun and laugh with friends. And I would choose weaker Pokemon to match my friends team, just to be nice and have the battle be fair, but if some snooty kid came up to me and asked to battle and kept telling me I'm gonna lose because I suck, I wouldn't care if he was weaker, I'd beat him just to teach him to be nicer to people.
