How Do You Make Teams

I don't care about what pokemon you use specifically, just what you look for in a team. Do you look for:

>type diversity
>pokemon that fill certain rolls
>swag
>themes (all bird pokemon, all blue pokemon, etc.)
>common types (gym leader style)
>or something else?

I have a few things I look for. I either make a bird team, because birds are the best pokemon, or I make a tough guy team (pic related), ideally with an edgy douche trainer if it can be helped, and a shiny Qwilfish named Reuben with a rash personality.

Also, and this is deplorable, but I tend to hack all the pokemon I want (3-8 mons) into my PC at a low level from the get go, with EVs already set and perfect IVs/nature. It's a perfectionists nightmare, as I can't stand to catch pokemon for a team when I know that they aren't as good as they could be (as if you need competitive level mons to beat the E4). Anyway, tell us about what goes into the selection of your teams /po/.

Single player
>type diversity
>aesthetic diversity
>majority of team monsters I've never used the rest ones I've barely tried
>At least a couple of the new ones
>usually mostly built for coverage and hitting power
>couple of exceptions which are usually higher maintenance but better in a pinch

There's no point in min/maxing. Though for .5 of a generation I might have some bred iv/eved monsters and level them while I'm at it.

Competitive
>type diversity
>role synergy depending on my strategy
>make sure i have at least a couple of situational answers to any threat
>mix of attacking types ie special/physical

I play quite offensively so this usually means being able to hit everything super effectively, answers to most cheese strategies,

So for singles
>hazard control
>taunt user with u turn or volt switch
>couple of offensive cores

For doubles
>support mon with speed control and often taunt
>something really fast
>bunch of bulky streamrollers
>maybe a weather setter if that work with my team

I didn't play gen 3 though. I stopped and never looked back, right up until I was coming off of heroin a few years ago, at which point I started white, then white 2, then fire red, then emerald, then platinum. Now I'm only really interested in romhacks that increase the difficulty a little bit. I'm playing fire red omega right now, which has harder battles, gengar/machamp/alakazam etc can evolve without trades, and the starters are smoochum, magby, and elekid (and they got +10 stat boosts to all forms).

that's fucking retarded. Smoochum will evolve into one race-baity thing while the other two turn badass as fuck.

emuparadise is the best one. if you wanna play gen 2 go for the emulator edition of crystal. it gives pokemon who evolve via trading simple stone and level up evolutions, and pokemon you couldn't get in crystal are there now, but are rare encounters. idk if there's such a hack for emerald or frlg though.

Use Troll and Toad. I've been getting occasional single copies on it, and the cost isn't THAT bad if you figure in the idea that you would have to buy a LOT of booster packs to get any one specific card.

What's up my dudes, i just started playing moon for the first time, been playing since pokemon yellow so this is a pretty cool thing for me that I've been putting off.

However I wanted a certain party in mind but the pokemon are transfer only, so i'm basically here to beg for them is any of you have them, while also starting a trade general.

I'm looking for a Duskull and/or lotad. the evolutions work but the lower level the better! my friend code is 1435-8895-7646

Caught a shiny Whimsicott, and would like to use it, but the nature isn't ideal (Lonely). If I invested 252 EVs in Defense, would it be worthwhile? Is there any way to use EVs to help negate a nature?

What ability does it have?

I have used whimsicott to great success but essentially it lived by grace of focus sash or resistances. In doubles with 4 of the following: taunt, fake out, protect, tail wind, beat up (terrakion as partner).

Though I know someone who ran a bulky leech seed.

Anyway the point is that the best build is the best build, that build will have one or two optimal natures and maybe 2 or 3 other okay ones.

At the end of the day what you can do with non optimal pokemon pretty binary, either you end up with a version of the same build that isn't quite as capable of doing the things it should, but it's good enough to handle the things you need it to, or it's not good enough. Your team is weaker either way but in the end we can't give you a good answer until we know what you want to do with it.

Which are completed games. I don't know where to start. And all the fan reviews are so drastically skewed its not even helpful. I've messed around with a couple, what are some romhacks worth really diving into?

I'm okay with difficulty. I'm just trying to figure out which ones are the most fun I can have with this. I don't care if they happen to be amateurish I'm just looking at this from a perspective of sheer dumb fun here.

The original hack was Pokemon brown. It was a hack of pokemon red/blue but included pokemon from other generations. I haven't played that one yet, i'm too used to fire-red graphics by now.
Instead I've been playing Rijon Adventures which is a remake of Brown but a hack of Fire-red. It's pretty entertaining so far, im about half way. Challenging and original. Includes gen1-3 pokemon so far. Apparently it includes Johto and another fan fiction region for the post-game.

installation takes a little while but just keep em both charged and it's easy. the main issue here is if you find the 3ds itself uncomfortable, and whether you get the regular or the xl. there's a lot of grips to choose from that make it much more ergonomic. the best one is the hori monster hunter cross hunting gear but it looks like that's never gonna go back down to 20 bucks, so you would be better off with the cybergadget or dreamgear grips.

Man though the switch pokemon games there's some major fucking potential there. Who knows what they'll do as far as artstyle. But its going to be cool to see pokemon on a comparitively beefed up system from anything its been on before. Sure you've got pokemon collisieum and the xd but thats not the same as a mainline entry. That's what I'm hyped for. My body is ready for that so fucking much.

Anyone remember this cringe fest, especially that one track with Misty trying to get in Ash's pants?

It was kind of disappointing to get. I remember hoping it would at least have that song they had a Japanese and English version of on the outro of a couple shows once, then pulled them and replaced them with one of the regular outros for the reruns.

And how could you not like such classic like WE'RE ON THE ROAD TO VIRIDIAN CITY!

>WE'RE ON THE ROAD TO VIRIDIAN CITY!

That one is embedded deep in my brain. Once in awhile, when I blazed enough, lines from that song will just start pouring out.
This could also be due to at least once I recall falling asleep with the CD on repeat, and the songs just playing out in my dreams.

Hmm agility vikavolt would work.

I think that or put it in a sun trick room team. Actually it can use solar beam and would work well in a sun room team. Thunderbolt, Solar beam and bug buzz. Only thing it can't seriously fuck up is kommo-o who largely sucks.

I do wish it had gotten battery or just a little more bulk, it'd have made it a really viable monster.

Well I guess next time I down a run of breeding that's on the lost after all though. I've got enough 5iv stuff sitting around it won't take long and the island means everything gets passively trained.

Shit I just remembered who did disappoint.

Golisopod. The fact it kept emergency exit breaks it. It's bulky, but gets STAB leech life and has the right stats to abuse that. Emergency exit means it will switch in and get to just first impression more but if something just hit me I'd rather sit in and hit it back with a same power move THAT ALSO HEALS ME. And being so slow, it rarely hits first then gets beaten the fuck back out. Golisopod usually loses it's attack if it's hit hard. It's ability confines it to first impression spam.

Might be entrainable but that's a whole other kettle of fish.

Aquaranid has probably been my favorite for some reason. It's just nice to have a tanky water/bug who benefits from the leech life boost. Ribombee is like the exact opposite, but they function great together which is probably why I kept them on my team.
