Has anyone got into Pokemon competitive battling? (and currently?)

Yes (Do you have a showdown account? Part of me wants to get into competitive battling again XD)
I don't play Pokemon

I'm trying to get into competitive. I've been using Smogon and all kinds of other legit methods to form some teams (I say "legit" because I'm a powersaver, but that method is technically non-legit).

I got really into in XY, but then once ORAS began I faded out of it since I got back into Naruto OCs 
What do use powersaver for? (I've poke genned for my XY games before, but usually I just play on showdown if I want to play competitively, I don't think I ever heard of powersaving before :XD: )

I'm definitely more into ORAS than XY.

But without getting too technical, a powersaver is a little tool that you plug into your computer, then insert your game cartridge into and it basically modifies the physical coding of the game for just about anything. I mostly use it modify Pokémon to make them shiny and clone them for giveaways; but, I've also used it to make some items and even to generate Wonder Cards for past event Pokémon.

Unfortunately, most don't look too kindly on people like me who use a powersaver because all you do is check a couple of boxes and you have a shiny instead of spending hours hunting or breeding for one. You also run the risk of corrupting your game; but, that's why you back it up before using it and then let it automatically back up each time you use it.
