It is the ultimate goal of many Pokémon trainers to become a Pokémon Master. But what defines a Pokémon Master? We'll discuss that in this thread. I think a Pokémon Master is someone who has the following qualities: - They know almost everything about Pokémon - They love Pokémon - They don't cheat. Cheating only refers to doing things that are outside the scope of the game - They respect their fellow Pokémon trainers, except for those who don't know about respect. This means they don't insult their fellow trainers, disrespect them or look down upon them for any unacceptable reasons such as the fact that they won or lost a battle, their team structure, the Pokémon or moves they use, their knowledge, their luck, their patience and their style as a Pokémon trainer - They love or accept all there is to Pokémon the way it is. - They don't just think they are right about something in Pokémon just because many other people think the same. For example, they don't take advantage of the fact that almost every single member of their community shares almost the exact same beliefs, attitudes and outlook on Pokémon, and then use that fact to claim they are right and other people are wrong. - Like Champion Lance, they don't get angry or upset when they lose. They always enjoy Pokémon - They have the courage to freely use whatever Pokémon, moves, items and EVs distributions they like, regardless of whether other people complain about it or frown upon them. To a Pokémon Master, having fun battling takes priority over having other people respect them (even though they shouldn't be disrespected anyway). Infact, the later isn't even a priority for a Pokémon Master - Their Pokémon battling abilities are superior to that of an average Pokémon trainer, whether this means they are extremely skilled, use extremely powerful Pokémon, have great patience, have insane luck, have great knowledge or a combination of those.
