Seriously though, who tha f**k is Barry?
Don't feel bad man. I still like pokemon and I probably will for a loooooong time. Barry is your rival in the diamond and pearl saga. He also appeared in the anime as a trainer with an Empoleon. He became friends with ash after a battle with him.
Oh ya, and Poppycock? What do you mean by perfect battles? Do you mean having a battle where you don't lose a single mon? Cause that will not make a good warstory in my opinion. It just shows that you were either fighting a newb or you got lucky. IMO a good warstory is where you're down to the last pokemon each, and it's one move that decides the match. Then we have something called suspense.
Misplays are ok too. You will be reading it and then when you read the misplay "Argh, I can't believe he did that! He's screwed.". Then you are able to beat him anyways. That shows you are a good player with the fact that you could recover from your mistakes.
