Metagame in Pokemon X and Y

I just got a copy of Pokemon Y! It’s been a while since I played a Pokemon game, my last was diamond. I really am looking forward to battling online, and I looked up how to construct a solid team-

Which basically sent me down the rabbit hole of IV’s and EV’s and tiers (and tears). I want to just be able to play with the intermediate-to-good players online, not really looking to enter contests with actual prizes or anything. I’m willing to EV and breed I guess, if that’s the only way to actually play.

I like strategy, like pokemon stadium-level strategy but this sounds exhausting and limits a team to only a few powerhouses pretty much.

What do most players do? Like does this mean I have to avoid using blaziken and gengar becuase of how overpowered they are? What should I do?

Giveaway!…question.

I want to do a giveaway but don’t know how quite to go about it when it involves physical items. Anybody’s ideas would be appreciated. How do you deal with who pays shipping? How do you do addresses, like do you just ask for addresses and people just have to trust you? 

as you can see, I’m horrendously inexperienced with this kind of thing. How does one just a random number system to choose winners?
