    At first, I didn't agree with Smogon taking over the competitive battling field of pokemon either.. then I found myself watching Wi-fi battles on Youtube. The individiual sets/EV spreads, etc. that Smogon off mean nothing without using them to build a soild, well rounded team .. which is entirely dependent on the trainer and choosing 6 of the nearly 700 pokes available. It's a resource. Nothing more. Personally, I feel like being angry at Smogon for giving trainers a resource to allow anyone to competitively battle is like being mad at a Wiki or FAQ site for giving someone access to all the combined knowledge of the human race. Just because it's there, doesn't mean it needs to be used.. and often times, it isn't.
