    They should all be on wifi, simulators are fakemon. This is obviously how Nontendo intended tournaments to be played, since the vgcs are played on real carts not sims.

    I think we should extend this to all battles in general. Nintendo made the carts for a reason: so people can play on DSes. We should obviously go with what Nintendo wants and eliminate all simulators in general.

    I fully support this. Pokemon Online still has a few glitches -- why bother Coyotte and Super when we can just move to cartridge play?

    also supporting, it actually rewards those who take the time to play and train their pokemon. pokemon's about the biggest heart and the will to win, not just who is better which is what simulators promote with the same perfect mons for everyone

    Support. I think it's sad that Pokemon Online bans Pokemon with 255 EVs in every stat and Pokemon like WonderTomb when they're available in-game.

    Also, I believe that it is impossible to recreate the game's RNG, so we're playing Fakemons.

    Pokemon are not just monsters we use for fighting to prove who is better. They are our life partners, and should be raised with love and care. Otherwise, we can never be true champions. BAN SIMS - Ash Ketchum
