Well, when I was young during Generation 1 there wasn't really a competitive scene. All of my Pokemon pretty much had 4 attacking moves, sometimes of the same type. The only support move I recall using back then was Recover, and I don't think Hidden Power or anything like that was around then.

It's really hard for me to answer this though, because movepools were really shallow in Gen 1 and Steel/Dark didn't exist (Dragon was almost non-existent too). No abilities, no natures, no items..etc..

But now that I think about it, there are older people who don't really use well-developed strategies in today's metagame as well as young people. I think time devoted to studying the metagame has like, 95%, of the impact on the someones play style and strategy rather than age.
