My first time playing pokemon, I spent five hours in the grass field right before Pewter City until my Pikachu was level thirty-five and I still lost to Brock three or four times before I beat him. (But, of course, I would shut the gameboy off and return to a savepoint because I didn't have money to spend on more potions.)

the fact that stats are becoming more prevalent in pokemon is because the original target demographic for these games has continued to play them and is now much older, and more experienced in pokemon games.


tldr pokemon kids are now grown ups and know stuff.

I don't EV train
I don't do nuzlocke
I don't do crazy made up challenges
I never use daycare for eggs
I don't care to collect shinies.
I play the game, I love the game, and I love my pokemon just the same.

When I played the first pokemon game aeons ago... I was never really into pokemon... still am not but it was a decent game

However I caught a magicarp and thought that I didn't have any water pokemon... and the other fish I kept finding goldine didn't look cool so I chose magicarp... I wasn't aware it was a complete piece of crap but I kept leveling it up every now and then... switch in switch out... then it hit level 20... mfw

Now everything is about the stats   
   
Basically, if you don't nowadays, people who are really into it could more than likely take out your team with little difficulty

I have always used pokemon based on what they look like, and there powers, I never look at the stats I don't even know what they do.

Hey guy, that's totally fine.
You can totally play pokemon however you want, if it's fun for you.
Playing in your own way is one of the best things about the game, and no one should give you **** about it.

But the people who save a new game over someone else's save file can burn in ******* hell.

Bought Poke'mon Y. Had my core 6 like two hours into game.
Froakie (Greninja)
Fletchling (Talonflame)
Pikachu (Raichu, yeah I evolved him **** you)
Bulbasoar (Venosaur)
Ralts (Gardevoir)
Riolu (Lucario)

Rocked that **** all game, for some reason I was always like 10 levels higher than everything I fought, including E4 and champ. I also traded Yvaltl or whatever his name is to Shauna because I believe a pokemon that can destroy the world belongs in the hands of somebody incompetent enough to battle a water type with a fire type.

Omg I remember my first pokemon game Crystal Version, I could never beat the elite four but I kept fighting them despite losing money over and over again and eventually my level 50's turned into lvl 60's and kept growing until I could beat them with that team. I enjoyed that my team was growing stronger with each loss. Then I found out my Typhlosion could learn thunderpunch and I wrecked Lance's team. Typhlosion can't learn thunderpunch in the new Generation pokemon games now though
