Still a month is a long time, do people spend like a week making a team or something? I would imagine that competitive players could easily get to top 10 within a couple of weeks let alone a month so why wouldn't they use Skymin to further their needs if only for a month, after all the metagame shifts almost bi-monthly and some teams because obsolete anyway.
Maybe because the reqs weren't even hard to meet for the Skymin vote? Why would any logical person put serious effort in making a team that they thought would have to be thrown away in a few weeks? The only reason would be to meet voting criteria, which in this case was easy as hell anyways, without the help of Skymin.
As far as the time it takes to make a team, I would say that for a really great team to be made, it takes a minimum of a week, when testing periods are also factored in. Then you make necessary alterations as well. Of course, this is for serious team building. However, why would I waste my time making a Skymin team if I wasn't sure of it's future status?
