II could give a damn about stats, you can beat the games with a team of Clefairy if you want, my main deciding factor is how appealing they look to me. Though I DO have some stipulations.

They have to be exclusive to that region (only Hoen Pokemon in Emerald, only Sinnoh Pokemon in Platinum, etc.), otherwise I might as well just play the previous games

No more than one of the same type on one team. I like diversity.

Not really that important, but no tiny or girly pokemon. My team is a team of destroyers, a friggin Roselia or Cleffa ruins the image.

And not that important either, but I prefer that they can evolve. Kind if boring sticking with the same Pokemon the whole game.

Anyways, yeah. Post your team requirements, if you have any.

The stats are more part of it than the other two, but all three are important.
Actually, movesets and abilities play as big of roles as stats.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

MAINLY stats, but in the bigger scheme of things, if I love the looks of one Pokemon but it has slightly lesser stats than another, I'd probably just go with the former.

Combination of stats, how the pokemon look, and how it will fit in on the team (balance typing)

First playthrough I usually do looks since I dont want to go and look up stats and mvoesets of new pokemon in my first playthrough.

I tend to have Fire/Water/Grass Core in msot of my teams for some reason, after that If Flying wasnt covered, I would get one of those and than just go nuts with whatever types I want. However, I always have a dark type, cause dark types are awesome.

I agree. I'm a huge Mienshao fan because I love to start with her and her moveset and abilities are really fun.

Stats more or less. Lol if it went on their design, I'd use them all~

How they look and the stats. For example, I include Weavile almost all the time for being super fast and strong (yet fragile) while looking awesome.

This, but factoring in movepools.

For example, I'm willing to have 2 pure Normal-types, if one has a mainly physical style (like, say, Persian) and the other mainly special (like Clefable)

I usually restart my game when I feel like replaying the story over again. On my first playthrough, I used to catch every Pokemon family, but from Pokemon X & Y onwards I'm only going to catch the new Pokemon I think I really want to use straight away because they look interesting to me to use alongside a few older Pokemon.

Any playthrough after the first, I try and use teams I haven't used before. Some Pokemon in the team may be the same a lot of the time but not every Pokemon on the team are the same on each playthrough.

On each playthrough, I generally keep my starter and one other Pokemon out all the time and rotate the rest of the team.
