It looks like fun, is there any sort of guide that can give you a good start?

Smogon's a good way to get started, though you shouldn't rely on it
I always listen, I just don't respond.

Common sense is also quite handy with competetive.
If there is a pokemon you like the look of.
Look it up on Bulbapedia

It'll give you a break down of:

base stats
Level of evolution (if any)
Level up move pool

Which moves are aquired from:
Move tutor
Previous evolutions

This is a very handy way of assessing what type of pokemon you could make your target into.
I.e. if its got high speed and sp.atk & atk. With a good variety of attacking moves in both physical and special spectrum. It could become mixed, or choose to specialise in one or the other.

But as others have suggested. Smogon is great for ideas. But i strongly suggest experimenting. Cookie cutter teams are good. But very VERY predictable.
