Here, I would like to ask: Had being involved in competitive battling affected what your favourite Pokemon are, from before you conducted competitive battling? Basically the question asks if you favour strong Pokemon and dismissed weaker Pokemon because of this, thinking they are worthless. I am not really involved in competitive battling myself (besides Battle Frontier), but I read up on them and understand them. I think that competitive battlers didn't like baby Pokemon and only favour the strong and the useful, but I am sure some of them used to like certain Pokemon before (like Farfetch'd) then when they learn he/she's not useful, they dislike him/her already. As for me, I used to base my preferences on the strength on the Pokemon when I learnt about competitive batting (there is a thing called tiers), but then I decided that my favourites are not going to be affected by it, and well, I felt free to choose my favourites. So, just in case you forgot the question, did being involved in competitive battling influence your favourite and unfavourite Pokemon?
