I'm better at R/B/Y. For G/S, I can just about spell some of their names correctly.

I think I'm somewhat of a Super-newbie at G/S. I'm not an ignorant fool, but my team sucks.

I'm somewhat well-rounded/abstract at both. Probably Metallics.

Ditto, I'm much better at Chromatics seeing as how I'm more familiar with it than Metallics.

Bah, I kick ass at both. I'd say the world of Chromatics are more my type though, since my battle experience is much more refined than in G/S.

Well, I've never so much as fought a G/S battle, so I'd have to say I'm better at RBY. I definitely prefer the balance of G/S, though... Psys and Zapdos on every team sucks.

Metallics, cause in Chromatics everyone uses the same thing and no matter how good you are it's often difficult to win, although I do win often anyway.

Chromatics as i've got more experience in that field. Mettalics have a lot more combos and strategies you have to keep in mind.

Chromatics. No contest. I can't do metallics just yet. Not enough experience, and no site that is worthy of comparison to Azure's chromatics to help me.

I like RBY better, but I have to say that even though I am godlike in both, I am simply all powerful in GS.

Yeah, I really suck at G/S, I'm learning, though. I prefer Chromatics to it any day.

Metallics, hands down. =P More or less comes down to what DraggyJ said; in the Chromatics, at least the PBS and other Net Faction battles, it doesn't count on Pokemon and strategy 95% of the time; it counts on who gets the CH, the FP, the max/min damage hits, etc.

While the Metallics still DO have that problem, you can actually see a smidge of variety in the teams...okay, it's not huge, but at least there is some variation, as opposed to 15 Pokemon constantly used in the Chromatics...the Metallics sport a whole 25.

I'm certainly better at GS than I ever was at RBY, but I got into RBY only a eights months before GS came out, so I never properly learned any of the RBY stategies.

Plus, the fact that GS is much more complex gives me something of an edge...I love complexity...

Right, so looking at Raindance's sig and sighing a large sigh of "what the hell", I'm still at a point where I am only good at RBY. RBY feels much less complicated, and while it is true that maybe 15 pokemon are standard, it's more fun to make a challenging moveset in RBY because of the lack of play balance (e.g. grep, Molly, benedict, toby). However, in G/S, things get much more complicated and with the addition of all these new moves and concepts such as time, new types, revamping strategies, and a much more complex battle engine, I'm getting bored with it quickly.

Which 25 are you referring to, RD?
