    I mean in Trading Shops
    Some people treat a shiny Voltorb as worth as a Graveler sometimes,
    and what ticks me more is that some people take the offer.

    I don't really get your point lol. I think a Shiny Voltorb is waaaayy more worth than a Graveler? Or what do you mean XD

      I meant that, Voltorb is weaker than Graveler, is probably just hatched,when a Graveler is EV Traiend,IV trained and all,and just the shiny coloration doesn't cut it ...

      I think this is all based on opinion. While you may not think shinies are worth it, others enjoy shinies, and are willing to trade said Gravelers for a Shiny that they want. There are some shinies that I have always wanted (like Shiny Mareep), and chances are I would probably trade an EV/IV trained Graveler for it.

        True,this is my POV and I shouldn't be trying to impose it.
        I just don't think it's morally right.

        Eh. When it comes down to it, Pokemon are Pixels. I'm not sure if anything has to be morally right or wrong with it comes to pixels. Now if Pokemon were real, then maybe.

          People get attached,it's like that favorite and ever needed blanket you had when you were a kid.
          But if you don't think so ... who am I to disagree/
          Anyways I don't like IV training, or EV training,or whatever.
          This seem to be drone-ification of Pokemon ...

          I used to be like that, but that was also when I refused to use Pokemon that weren't pretty too. So not like me anymore, lol. Now my mindset on it is "I want my Pokemon to be the best it can be and not be held back by its genes"...kind of like when my mom bred cats, you always picked the best male to keep breeding to make better and better cats, and no way you kept them all :P

            Well,but you gotta agree that mass-breeding can be disastrous.
            And that's another aspect I don't like in mass-breeding if looking from the game inhabitant's POV

            I prefer to think that they enjoy the babies running around. Or maybe they eat them. Who knows?

              Well I think mass-breeding isn't the biggest "sin" one could make after all
              The biggest one would be going to the Safari Zone and only throw rocks at every pokemon.

                What?
                No, Audinos can go to hell ...
                It's not my fault if they're walking rare candies ...

                The only Pokemon I really care more are those that I have specifically trained to be part of my main team. Any other Pokemon I don't get as attached to, so to speak.

                  I don't way overlevel my Pokemon so I never have that problem. I do have one level 100 but the rest are around the level they were at when I beat the Elite Four, haha.

                  I'm always underleveled when I get to the Elite Four. Took me a few tries to beat Cynthia on my Platinum the other day because of it, haha.

                    I have never "maxed" a pokemon in the sense level,at least not by conventional means ...
                    But some think it's fun.
                    It's like proof you have really bonded with that Pokemon.

                    My Pokemon were so overlevelled when I battle the E4 the first time in Pokemon White. My team of 6 were all on like level 64 before I beat N.

                    Yeah my only level 100 is the first Pokemon that I've ever really seriously liked, Volcarona. In case you couldn't tell from my Volcarona locks but he is to me what Herdier is to Nica :P

                      I have my own strategy for beating gyms and E4.

                      I just train my starter and nothing else.
                      And before E4 my starter is about between levels 70-80.
                      And that strategy works for me.

                      And after the E4 I start to train my other Pokémon too.
                      I have few boxes full of over 40 level Pokémon in White.

                        So basically, you just use your normal team for E4,no extra grinding,additions,cut backs?
                        Seems doable

                        Grinding is just the worst thing to me. I don't understand how people are even able to do it. I get bored after like ten wild battles.

                        I'll let the people in this thread in on something . . . the only reason all the Pokémon in my main party in Heartgold are at Red level (as opposed to Elite Four level) is because I used AR to get them to level 80. :x I just, ugh screw it. xD Leveling up with no variety is horrible.

                        Anyway, I figure I'll just post my original Heartgold party and my current Heartgold main party. :D Why not?

                        Original:

                        Meganium
                        Umbreon
                        Gengar
                        Dragonite
                        Pinsir
                        Quagsire


                        I dumped about half of them and got new ones before my Red rematch.

                        Current:

                        Gengar
                        Umbreon
                        Entei
                        Dragonite
                        Breloom
                        Vaporeon


                        :D Parties are fun!

                          OH,you changed the whole thing?
                          I'd never be able to do to this,I'm too lazy to actually switch a member after I trained one ...
