It's that time of year again, the time where we crank up our teambuilding skills and, as a community, create a team to help us gain a better understanding of the new BW2 metagame. Hence, the name Community-Create-A-Team! For those of you who have no idea how this works, please check out Edition 1 and 2, led by the best of Pocket and ginganinja. Now that a ton of fresh, new Pokemon, abilities, and movesets have been allowed, it's time we make a fresh, new team as well. In the last CCAT, a couple new changes were implemented, including the vote for a checklist of teams. This time, I'm adding one new change: a new bonus voting point system. BONUS VOTING POINT SYSTEM: Many different voting systems have been used on Smogon in the past. Everything from holding a council to a public vote to even a plain dictated vote has been used. This time, our voting system will be a different form of a public vote, what I call a bonus voting point system. This is basically just a public vote, but with a little reward added into it. There will be a total of at least six public votes throughout this project. Everyone that submits a winning idea (1st come, 1st serve) will get +0.5 voting points. Keep in mind, voters recieve no change, only the submitters. From the start, everyone has one voting point, which basically means that your vote counts as a single vote. Once you win a round, however, your vote rises and suddenly counts as 1.5 votes. Although this might not seem like much in the beginning, it quickly racks up, and can be the major deciding point of some close cut votes. People that win multiple votes will continue to gain +0.5 voting points. Here's a list of the basic stages we will check off during our project. [box]Step 1: We select a pokemon to base our team around. This time, there will be no restrictions as to what pokemon you submit- but use common sense, and don't post stupid things like SubSD Caterpie. Try to think of beneficial pokemon to make a team around. What can we learn from making a team around that pokemon? How much experience has been gathered with that pokemon? Just like last time, this step is most important, and a lot of thought should be put in here. Be prepared with supports, as well. This is a discussion, so you're going to want to be able to fend for your idea and prove to the community that it's the best one. 1 vote here. SubPass Gliscor Step 2: We select what style of team we want to make. This will likely include something along the lines of Offense, Bulky Offense (closest form of stall..), Weather, Trick Room, and possibly more. 1 vote here. Balance/Bulky Offense Step 3: We select Pokemon that work well around our Pokemon and fit the team style and test it. 5 votes here. Teammate #1: Calm Mind Keldeo Teammate #2: Choice Band Tyranitar Teammate #3: Specially Defensive Bronzong Teammate #4: Life Orb Latias Teammate #5: Choice Scarf Terrakion Step 4: We fine-tune the team based on our experiences in test-driving the team on the ladder! Step 5: We finalize the team and write up a 5-star RMT![/box] As a final note, make sure that whatever you test is actually viable instead of theorymonning.
