I feel that team preview in gen 5 has been the worst addition to pokemon since -- ever. At best it causes the mid and end game to come earlier and freshens up the game. At worst it causes too much emphasis to be placed on teambuilding over in game strategy. Interesting bits of the metagame like leads and scouting have been watered down.
My question is: is there a version of B/W played with no team preview? If there is, do enough people participate to make it worthwhile?
I think I remember something about some kind of wifi mode based on an actual nintendo style of play with no team preview.
If ignorance is bliss, then knock the smile off my face.
