Right now I'm running a status team. Just get in there, and annoy the stuffing out of people. So far, it's won me a lot of random matchups.

However, I do have a Blissey on that team as a part of a standard set up. (It knows softboiled, healing wish (it definately helped me by bringing back some team members), thunderbolt and ice beam.) I dunno how routine it is, but it helps with killing Charizard Y/X.)

There's nothing wrong with being unoriginal if you're enjoying yourself and with Pokemon, certain sets are unoriginal for a reason, they're good.

Some people just ever so desperately want to be a snowflake and will look down upon anything that's not as "unique" as they are.
Yes.

cookie cutter builds are cookie cutter because they work

it's why Aegislash is so good despite having ONE dominant build: even if you predict the hell out of it, unless you have a pokemon specifically tailored to beat it, it's still going to put a dent in your team


Lol no.

An aegislash has never dented or caused me problems. It is too predictable.
Being yourself is the greatest thing. Do not let anyone tell you different.

congratulations, you have a pokemon tailored to beat it or you've never fought good Aegislash users. want a cookie?

i honestly dont see how pokemon can be played without being a bit creative.

because if u arent creative... ur team would be so predictable, u would lose like every match (assuming same tier pokemons). It is a game based on prediction after all.

so in essence, the real question should be "how many percent is this creative?"

pokemon off smogon with 50 ev relocated?
5% creative 95% cookie cutter

changed 1 move?
15% creative 85% cookie cutter

etc

whether it is good or not, that's entirely different question.
