Using a pokecheck doesn't eliminate your other options. If it does, you're doing it wrong.
This is an interesting debate you guys got going on. I've never thought to try and disguise the pokecheck by keeping my stick close to the body. In fact, I usually do the opposite, try and keep an active stick.
Disguising the poke check? That's just sneaky.
