Draft by Dogknees, QC'd by cant say + Noved. Credit to p2 for thread layout and idea. Approved by cant say. Banner graciously provided by blazenix, thanks again man! Welcome to the SM Battle Spot Singles Role Compendium! The purpose of this thread is to provide a visual list of what roles Pokemon fulfill in the current metagame. Ideally, the thread will help players of any skill level in finding Pokemon that fulfill their team when searching for specific roles, as well as assisting in encouraging players to use a wider array of Pokemon in their building. Pokemon selection withing the Role Compendium is based on both viability and general performance in the current metagame, however all Pokemon are ordered alphabetically. Check out The Pokemon Dictionary if you don't understand what a certain term means! Guidelines All users are allowed to post nominations, but must be done so with a logical point of view. When nominating, check out the SM Battle Spot Single Viability Thread for a general guideline of what's viable. Note however that some exceptions will be made. If you feel as if something is not the role it is listed, feel free to mention so, but along the same kind of guidelines as if you were nominating a Pokemon. Think of it as a reverse nomination. Keep in mind that the metagame constantly changes from season to season, so expect both subtle and major changes to be made! Thanks everybody, enjoy the resource!
