Teambats
Welcome to teambats, a classic community event revived from the depths of Smogon history. Teambats are a competition between two teams of players to build a team under certain restrictions and duke it out. Both teams will be given the same amount of time to build (usually 20 minutes, although can vary). Cooperation within teams is allowed, preferred even, during the battle. Everything will take place in two separate group chats on Pokemon Showdown.

Rules:
  • Do not try to sneak into the opposing team's chat.
  • Do not try to leak information to the other team.
  • Be respectful to your opponents and teammates.
  • Follow the team-specific rules for that week.
Failure to comply to these rules could lead to your team's disqualification or being banned from future teambats.

Current Teambats Submissions:
  • Alphabetical: Choose a pokemon, and every other mon must be one letter further into the alphabet (ex. if you Kadabra, you would then have to use a pokemon beginning with L, such as Lanturn)
  • Liar's Rule: You must announce your move before every turn (alternating between announcing first and second), however you get 3 lies (credit to alamaster)
  • Pick: Every turn you must !pick between switching out and attacking (you can choose what to go out to, and what attack to use)
  • Bad/Good mon: You are given a good (uber with low level) or bad (NFE/PU) mon, and have to build around it (ex. level 88 arceus, or a skitty)
  • Past Gen: ADV/GSC/DPP/BW/ORAS
  • Luck Free: no sub-100% accuracy moves
  • Lucky and Bad: Ony sub-100% accuracy moves, no healing allowed
  • Color-Blind: You can only use mons of one specific color (use !pick)
  • Dancing on Tiptoes: Spin/Defog are banned, have fun with hazard spam
  • Not Fully Evolved: the teams are given a random LC/NFE mon, and have to build with it
  • Random OM battles (Inverse, Stabmons, etc.)
  • EVless: Each team gets 1536 (256*6) evs to spend, good luck
  • No STAB
  • Random BL3 mons
  • Generations: you only get one generation of mons to use
  • 16 moves per team
  • Tortoise vs Hare: one team only gets mons over 75 speed, one team only gets mons below 75 speed.
  • 'Join the ranks': Team must consist of 6 different ranks, S-ranks excluded. So a team should like an A+ mon, an A mon, an A- mon, a B+ mon, a B mon and a B- mon. Teams can use C-ranked mons too as long as each mon is ranked differently.

shoutouts to Disjunction for the thread format. If you have any other ideas for teambats, shoot me or any other moderator a message to let us know!

Really happy to see these back up and running. I'll be transferring the teambats index and made in the last thread and will update it regularly so that people know what ideas have already been done n.n

This teambat truly was a Gift, from the Gods.

We played in the Godly Gift format (http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/godly-gift-leaders-choice.3597618/), where every mon gets one stat from its god (we allowed BL3 and under mons), and the teams certainly abused those given stats, from a Meloetta with 200 Base Defense, to a Ariados with an actual speed stat.

Hosted one today with a theme I came up with: teams must pair each Pokemon that can evolve with one of its pre-evolutions, and are only allowed 2 Pokemon not part of an evolutionary chain. Pokemon such as Sneasel whose evolutions are all in higher tiers count as not part of any chain.

Was fun and interesting to see the similarities in ideas each team had with building. Thanks to all that participated, hope to host more of these in the near future : )

Today's theme was Tortoise vs Hare, where one team could only use Pokemon with base 80 Speed and up while the other team could only use Pokemon with base 80 Speed and below (both teams could use base 80 Speed Pokemon). I also allowed the Tortoise team to use Minior because of Shields Down activating automatically when Minior enters the field.

ok so this is my first teambat.

Theme was Liar's Rule: You must announce your move before every turn (alternating between announcing first and second), however you get 3 lies (credit to alamaster).
Before that I made both teams pick one A-Rank Mon or above and one C-Rank mon or below. After both teams picked, the picked mons were exchanged and then built around.

Team Is it true?

DurzaOffTopic
Yoshizilla315
Ming549
Jarii

got Guzzlord and Miltank.
