@Luigifan141
Thanks, but as worlds 2011 finalist, I don't need luck :P
(I probably do because those critical hits and paralysis can really turn the tide of a game...)
I've top cut in all regionals except for 1, 2nd in Houston, 8th in St. Louis and then I got 9th in Atlanta...

@MonHanKatsumi
I know exactly how you feel. Whenever I play seriously with a RNGed team at a place like college, I always get accused of pokesav'ing my pokemon. Nearly all the pokemon I use are RNGed shiny, nearly flawless (31 in all but one stat, such as attack in a special attacker, only exception is when I have a certain hidden power)
I've only been accused of cheating in one tournament, but the guy called over a volunteer and the volunteer clearly didn't know what he was doing, and it held up the event by 20+ minutes. My opponent called it "a blatant completely hacked team of shinies."
I hate the mentality that quite a bit of people go by, which is if they lose to a team of shinies, it's hacked.

@Yorumi I talked to a game freak employee at worlds 2011, and I asked him what game freak's view on RNG abuse. He said that game freak doesn't care about RNG abuse at all and they don't consider it cheating at all, they consider it CLEVER that someone has figured out the system and how to manipulate how it works.

Even if it is how the game was intended to be played, game freak clearly shows it doesn't have a problem with RNG abuse.
also, looks like I got the date wrong, if anyone wants me to retake, I will. (26 isn't 29...)

@Klinny
Hacked pokemon in your team get you disqualified from the event, but you are free to participate in any other event, also, if you are a junior or senior, the judges will let you switch out the hacked pokemon instead of being disqualified.

@Yorumi
Seriously, learn how to RNG. Not only can you get perfect IVs and the hidden power you want, it's completely legit seeing as RNG'ing isn't modifying the game at all, it's just using the RNG in pokemon to your advantage.
Also, netbattle is so 2008.
The only thing the hack checks need is egg move legality. I saw an ultra ball dark pulse hydreigon (back when it was only an egg move)
And fix dc'ing of course, especially in tournaments such as the Japan Nationals qualifier and international challenges where CP is involved. That extra 8 CP can secure someone a worlds invite.

@Yorumi Yes, and those games are designed differently because in their competitive, there is way more in prizes involved, so all luck aspects are removed, and the game becomes purely skill based and psychological. The reason people RNG is because they want to reduce that luck aspect. If you want to reduce the luck aspect of IVs when you battle, take the initiative to learn how to RNG.

@Yorumi Yes, but in most esports the variation comes down to the player and his skill, not luck. in a common FPS the team's difference vs other teams is based on the players' skill and how he/she plays, not a random in game value. That's how a lot of games have it so no two players are exactly alike. In some games such as Source Engine games, most randomness is eliminated in competitive by turning off things like damage spread and critical hits.

@3Daniel That is completely a lie made by Nintendo/TPCi.
There is no way for an AR hacked game to mess up yours just by battling with it. Even trading with it won't. Unless, you trade a custom pokemon that was added into the game via AR. When I mean custom, I mean such as a fake pokemon like adding something like sylveon into a 5th gen game. Only then, will a hacked game even have a chance of bricking your game. Nintendo always has fake warnings, such as using a flash card on a 3DS can brick it, while this is not true at all (I'm not endorsing flash card use, I don't recommend using one at all)
The only time an AR can mess up your game is if you use it very stupidly. Even them, it'll only mess up your save file at most.

One thing people don't seem to realize or take time to learn about, is that RNG'ing exists, and is definitely not cheating. If you call RNG'ing cheating, then you are essentially calling all walkthroughs, online guides and such, cheating. Just because someone has full teams of shiny pseudo legendaries (like me) doesn't mean we are cheating. It just means we took the time to learn RNG'ing or, reset out games multiple times just to get the pokemon shiny. At my college, nearly everyone calls me a cheater because of my all shiny teams. People need to be educated more to actually detect a true cheater. And calling all Japanese players with these sort of pokemon, doesn't mean they are cheaters. Don't forget they have had (not with BW2 though) the game way longer than us. I will say that, most players with 1000+ wins dc after I beat them, though. The majority of dc'ing 1000+ win players are Japanese.
