electrolyte/harsha might offer a more concrete ruling on this matter
If that's true, and I'll assume that it is because you're generally on top of things, then in my mind we shouldn't be bringing a weather starter into CCAT this early. What you say sounds to me like "once we have four or five 'mons, if a weather starter fits the role of the last Pokemon well, we can still include it". That's fine by me, and though I'd prefer a completely weatherless team, I would still like to contend that the third Pokemon is far too early to bring in weather. If we start now, it is practically inevitable that we'll end up having a much more weather-centric team than we intended, and the whole reason the majority of us voted for weatherless in the first place is because we didn't want weather in our CCAT. Consider that.
