Assuming you don't play battles only two times a month (or even less), you would know that using smaller characters is like the Funky Kong of battles. This is true in terms of smaller characters being overused, not that using smaller characters gives you any type of statistics boost (or at least I don't think so). I've always used small characters when playing battle, and many other good battlers do as well. But even though I know all of this, I could never explain to you why that's the case. Do you guys have any reasons as to why this is? My only guess is that because your smaller, it makes you think that you can avoid traps easier than larger characters. But I'm not so sure, so I'm interested to hear what you guys think.
