    So whats your favourite competitive pokemon play style (Hyper Offensive, Bulky Offense, Balanced, Semi Stall, Stall, Choiced Abusers, Weather Abuse and anything else iv missed)

    My favourite play style is Hyper offensive but I also like Bulky offense and Balanced teams.

    HO for me too. Well, I sometimes do weather too when HO isn't working but I feel like weather has an advantage tbh.

    I made a stall team in OU, then stopped playing OU for a few days and moved onto NU and now dislike OU, so... in other words I dislike stall that much lool. :x I suck at facing TR teams. :(

      Hyper offense all the way. I've almost always favoured quick aggressive strategies in games and such.

        Elf Offensive Defense is my favourite play style and also the much fabled "Elf Stall". Volt Turning is also fun.

        My teams are usually offensively-inclined and revolve around stacking Spikes and forcing switches. I prefer to use a bulkier offensive team rather than to try to make a team around frailer sweepers. I also cannot stall worth a damn. :(

          I pretty much run Hyper Offense most of the time. Either come out swinging to get a quick 6-5 or 6-4 jump on the opponent, or play somewhat conservative for a bit, then unleash my reserved deadly sweepers to finish things up quickly.

          I usually play balance or semi-stall, both of which include spike stacking more often than not, although I've been playing lots of full stall [mainly Rain Stall] lately.

            I prefer a mixture of Stall, Bulky Offensive, and Choiced Abusers nowadays, I tend to either take my time in the beginning of a match and start spamming Stealth Rock, Toxic, etc or just hit right off the bat and simply annihilate everything in sight once I get set up lol.

              Bulky Offense is best. If my bulk can take your attacks, the why do I need to speed ahead? Gyarados, Tyranitar, and Reuniclus FTW!

                    My favorite style of play has always been Bulky Offense. Particularly spike stacking offense, as that is usually the type of play that has the best match ups against just about everything. Occasionally I'll play balanced or straight offense, but I hardly touch stall for the simple reason that I don't have the patience to play it. l0l

                    Also user Karpman is a chode muffin and a super baddie (:
