    I find a lot of times, the Strategy Pokemon suggestions posted on here are taken as gospel.

    I know I've personally gotten questions, running a Choice Band Kyurem-Black, 'Eeyore, the hell, man? That isn't on Smogon!'

    Well, random stranger who I just owned, Smogon Pokedex is amazing, but not gospel.
    It changes for everyone.
    We all have different styles.
    There are some people who like Wall-Leads (guilty)
    There are some people with a team of 6 sweepers
    There are people who just use their favorites
    And those who like to use the pokemon you forget are in that tier so that when you lose you sit there at your screen wondering how you just lost to a freakin Wormadam/Marshtomp combo in NU when you were using Harvestutor and Garde!... I'm not bitter...

    So I would love if registered Smogon people could post their ideas, underneath the chaos gospel written for each Pokemon.
    Hell, sometimes we might actually have a good idea.
    We could even upvote or downvote the suggestions to see what does and does not work.

    What do you think?:pimp:

    Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites. I like your style. You understand what's important. Go on—the Champion is waiting.
