      I've got a question about team rating
      1. View previous comments...
      2. -Magic-
        So I just rated a team concerning Hail. I kept the concept in tact but changed around the other members, so like does that still count as a good rate or is it bad?

        Also are my rates good?
        Nov 21, 2015
      3. Albacore
        As long as you don't change the general concept of the team (aka usually the title of the RMT) you should be fine, and it doesn't look like you did that.

        Your rates are pretty solid by the way, the only real problem with them is that you tend to suggest a lot of Pokemon changes, you should always try to suggest the smallest number of changes possible while still improving the team as much as you can, although it can be hard to find the right balance especially when the team is bad (hence why people tend to avoid rating bad teams). Also, always make sure your suggestion doesn't make the team weak to something else. Other than that, you seem to be doing pretty well, so good luck!
