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?
A familiar note is produced. It's the note Desolation plays to keep its instrument in tune
