How does everyone make their teams?

^^

Do you have a pattern in your mind and try to find pokemon with stats to fit that pattern?

Ex. My teams are generally a lead (typically focus sash with high atk or sp. atk), a def tank, a sp. def tank, a physical attacker, a set-up sweeper, and maybe a support (I tend to gravitate towards pranksters).

Made a few OU teams and one UU team this way and I generally win a few games before I make another (on Showdown anyways), since I just want to try them all.

What kind of team do you make?

Pick a pokemon I think is cool then build around it.

Slap a few pokemon together, battle a bit, then adjust accordingly

Get at least 3 pokes i really like, then add another 3 that complement their weaknesses and strengths.
