GameFAQs Create-A-Team?

#1SorceressTharjaPosted 8/25/2013 12:38:11 PM
Okay. So I was wondering if the more competitively-oriented community on here would be interested in, between us, coming up with a Pokemon team online play.

It would probably have to be Smogon OU (since it's the most popular tier it's more likely people are familiar with it) or VGC style (as these are official Nintendo rules). More likely OU I think, since doubles are... harder.

So, idk. Post here if you're interesting in making a team as a community. If there's sufficient people here who want to get involved, I'll head it up.

Also, I'd be more than happy for less-experienced players (even those who've never done online play before) to try and get involved with the team if they want to get online. It gives them a way of getting into the metagame.

I don't see this going well since many people will want their favorite Pokemon in the team.

Also everyone's play style is different.

If we're making a Smogon OU singles team can we make a team around the current suspect, Keldeo?

Let me make sure I'm understanding this correctly. You want the board as a whole (well, those wanting to participate and not troll) to come up with an OU team?

It worked well enough elsewhere, so I thought it would be worth a try. There's more steps to it than "Pick 6 Pokemon NAO". You determine the tier, then what playstyle the team will be based around (rain, HO, weatherless offense, blah). Then you start suggesting Pokemon. You would have a few people whittle the suggestions down (by basically excluding the troll votes), then you'd put it to a vote. Majority rules. Repeat for 6 Pokemon, go off and test it.

It's well and good to say you don't think it will work, but we won't know until we try. Given GameFAQ's community? I'm inclined to say it won't. I agree with you there, but I think I'd like to give it a try.

Personally, I'd rather exclude Keldeo just in case it were to get banned BUT if other people wanted to use Keldeo I wouldn't object.

How will we decide on the team theme? Once I know the theme I can start brainstorming. Looks like we need more people first anyways :P

There'll be a poll, probably. I can't actually post polls due to my user rank, so I'll get someone else to post one...
