Yeah that is fine but when you say:
It should be noted, however, that the player who uses a lesser Pokemon and still attains victory consistently is rewarded with the utmost respect
It sounds to me like you arent talking about an overlooked pokemon, but you are talking about something that is genuinely inferior.. And to me it seems to suggest that we wont respect someone as much if they arent using crap like butterfree..
I mean, I am pretty sure in advance I could use Butterfree and Luvdisc and still come away with a positive record on NB, but I wouldnt expect anyone to respect me for it.. In fact I would expect people to get annoyed at my arrogance and lack of respect for my opponents.
 - I like FECG's suggestion a lot more!
Have a nice day.
