The sheer tedium of IV/EVs kills any real thought of playing "seriously."

Nobody playing competitively actually grinds IVs/EVs. Only people who really want to beat their inexperienced local friends actually do that.

We all use...

http://www.pokemonshowdown.com/

Before that we used Shoddy Battle, although that stopped getting updated.

You select IVs/EVs/Move set/Nature. I still believe Smogon University is the top place to get strategies.

You can watch random matches as a guest if anyone if interested in Pokemon Showdown. The sound is loud though, get ready to turn it down.

And, of course, people who play in tournaments.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Update: Ninfia's English name is Sylveon. The Pokemon Company's got a short video posted of gameplay footage of this Pokemon.

The fact that a sylph is an air elemental just further indicates the likelihood that it's Flying type to me.

i was just recently exposed to pokemon showdown and OH MY GOD IT IS SO AWESOME. if any of you fools want to test me, go ahead ;D

anyway, i really think the new eeveelution is first a normal type, second a new type, and maaaybe third a flying type. but i'm hoping for new type. but the only feasible types would be a "Fae" type and a "Sonic" type. I cant think of any other types they'd introduce that arent covered by the other types. "Light" would probably be mixed in with my suggested "Fae" business.

lolz to the people who still think Sylveon is a dragon type. wtf.

Flying is just as unlikely if you ask me. Eevee evolutions are always monotyped, and they only make monotyped flying pokemon if they're supposed to never actually land. My money's on normal or a new type entirely.

Don't count this as fact, but it could be possible that if Light typing is introduced, Fairy egg group monsters could be retconned into it (much like how Magnemite inherited Steel when it was introed in GSC).

Also in second generation, one of the Eeveelutions ended up being the new type (Umbreon for Dark).

But that's just a thought.

I believe there's only one pure flying type thus far and it has a form with legs that stands on the ground.  Or, to phrase it in hip internet lingo: Tornadus says hi ;)

To be fair, Tornadus' therian form is still a bird (since that cycle['s design] seems to be based on the Phoenix, Dragon and Tiger aspect from eastern myth).

Yeah, it looks like Frieza merged with a Twilek...  with a spoiler on its head to indicate that it is both fast and furious.
