How do you decide which pokemon you capture?

Appearance? Stats? Type? When playing pokemon games i always end up basing my team off someone else's team around the second playthrough. I believe i do this because i don't know what makes a good team, how do you choose the pokemon you capture.

Appearance mostly then ..type and usually knowing a bit about it first
Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-

Huh, you catch them all. What do you mean "decide"?

Joking aside, I go for who is cool and who I would actually use if Pokemon were real. That is why I don't play competitive.

But as I am realizing, Pokemon can be played in many shades of Grey. Not just Black & White.

I capture every Pokemon that I don't have in my Pokedex. I use the ones that look appealing to me for the first playthrough and start building a more useful team post-game.

Catch them all.

As for using them, I just go off how much I like my new Pokémon compared to the ones I'm using.
