Community Create a Metagame: As anybody that has any experience with other metagames is aware, creating a metagame by yourself and attempting to make it more than theoretical is quite difficult. Many people attempt to make their own "pet" metagames and while many of those want to just have fun, those interested in making their metagame played and official are struck with a real challenge. The goal of this thread is to create a new metagame that is successful. This is not my metagame more than it is any of yours and I do not have any idea what this will turn into. That being said I have to lay down some guidelines so this can work: 1.) The metagame will be based off of standard overused. This will attract more players than any other tier spin-off and is manageable unlike a tier for all pokemon. 2.) The goal is to make as few changes to the metagame while making the metagame as desirable as possible to play. We want to make it "ideal" Also too many rules may turn off a lot of users. I have come up with a process for this to attempt to make it as successful as possible: 1.) Define ideal version of the overused metagame 2.) Brainstorm as to what we must do in order to do this 3.) Finalize and write up a summary of what we decided in step 2 4.) Create a mod of pokemon showdown! that features the metagame 5.) Edit the metagame to perfection 6.) Continue to spread love for the metagame so it eventually becomes popular enough to be official I know all of this is very ambitious, but I think if we work together it can be done. Things to keep in mind: The #1 problem is other metagames is attention. Spread this project by putting it in your signature or location*. Pocket did an excellent job of this for Smogon Doubles. The idea behind this thread is not to necessarily bring all fantasies to life but to create an easy to play and learn metagame. Without further ado, What is the ideal overused metagame? What must be done in order to make it more fun to play? What must be done in order to make it stable? *how do you get text that reads something but is actually a URL you can click on in your signature??
