You're not a beautiful, unique snowflake.
You're not special. You're not a "true Pokémon player" because you complain that Smogonites are elitist, yet proceed to out-elitist them. You're not Arceus' gift to the goddamn universe. You're not hot shit for using crap Pokémon. You're not hot shit for WINNING with crap Pokémon, it just means your opponents are just that much beneath you. Bring your Pachirisu against someone of your own level, you're going to get fucking annihilated. Just because Se Jun Park won the world championship with a Pachirisu doesn't suddenly make it a miracle worker at all levels of play. You're not Se Jun Park, you're just some random scrub who thinks he's better than he really is. He made it work because he's just that damn good. He knows exactly what he wants out of an aggro magnet. He knows exactly how to play an aggro magnet. He always picks the best move for the situation on any given turn instead of just spamming Follow Me and hoping something happens. He DID try the usually superior Amoonguss before settling for Pachirisu, because it better suited someone of his skill. You? You suck. Stick with Amoonguss, you'll get better results. And if you play a metagame where Togekiss is allowed, you may get even better results with that. There's a difference between the game of Pokémon and the art of Pokémon. You're no Picasso, you're no Mozart, you're no Tolkien, you're no Orson Welles. You're Stephenie Meyer, you're Michael Bay, you're Cecilia Gimenez.
