Well, I really don't like any kind of hack, but there are much worse things than that. And IV checking is perfectly fine. Its not like your doing anything to your game or anything. I use them all the time.
Someone commenting on my sig? Never got that before. But anyways, basically what I am saying is that Game Freak gave people all the tools they need to be successful competitively, and a real trainer does not need to alter their game in anyway to be successful. Though my sig is just as much attacking people who use the term "legal hacks" because, at least to me it is an oxymoron. If you hacked it, then it is not legal. End of story. I don't care if it is possible. I just want people to show a little dedication to all stages of Pokemon training. Not just battling.
Oh, there are many girls on smogon indeed. And yet there are still people who will go around thinking they're guys until told otherwise just cause. Almost every girl with a trade thread on here has a small blurb mentioning that they're a girl, so I'm not the only one. :P
