We'll have to give the community some credit, especially in this sort of metagame which seems designed to be more fun than competitive, theoretically allowing the use of every single pokemon out there (other than maybe crap like unown or caterpie).
And, if it does happen, I'm sure we could work out some sort of formula or mechanism for working out extremes of bad games and somehow ignoring them - after all, even the best of pokemon could be useless in a game due to a simple player mistake, switching it in at the wrong moment or over/under predicting the opponent's move.
