Everyone I know is a tank at pokemon, and if not, it's because they're not fluent in english or are one year old.
You mean if they competitively play each other THEY WILL ALL WIN EQUAL AMOUNTS AND NONE OF THEM WILL EVER BE SIGNIFICANTLY BETTER THAN ANY OF THE OTHERS?!
ALL OF THEM?!
ALL OF THEM ARE EXACTLY EQUAL?!
Because honestly, no some people can in fact be better at pokemon. Whether the people in this thread are correctly assessing their ability or not is another story, but you can, in fact, just be fucking better at it than other people. There is a LOT of strategy going on in higher level competition, though, it tends to settle a bit after each new game set comes out into some set routines, much like you know, CHESS (where the metagame is so studied that there is less variety than there used to be), but that doesn't stop it from having a lot of layers strategically.
I don't enjoy competitive pokemon, but to say that EVERYONE is equally good at it is just moronic.
