    hosted by Jellicent


    CCAT is back once again, though things will work a tad differently. We'll be picking a theme for the team first, then find an underrated threat to build around.

    The team so far:

    We're building a Gravity team with the following members:

    [​IMG]
    Golurk @ Life Orb
    Trait: Iron Fist
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Earthquake
    - Gravity
    - Drain Punch
    - Fire Punch


    Rules:

    Stage 1: We'll be voting on a theme for our team. Examples include weather, Trick Room, Baton Pass chains, etc.

    Stage 2: Once we have our theme, we'll nominate and vote on an underrated threat that functions well on such a team.

    Stage 3: We'll put together a core of 2-3 Pokemon that can support and work well alongside our underrated threat.

    Stage 4: Finalizing the team, we'll pick the 2-3 more that fit the theme and work well with our current lineup.

    Stage 5: Playtesting. If there were any unexpected threats found to our team, we'll tweak it accordingly.

    Stage 6: ~Mystery Tournament~

    Gonna open this up to votes. Our options:

    Rain
    Sand
    Sun
    Hail
    Trick Room
    Gravity
    Baton Pass

    If there's another theme you'd like to see used, you can nominate it. Voting will last for the next 48 or so hours.

    Gonna take this time to surprise no one with my vote: Trick Room

    This sounds great. Going to vote for sun-there are loads of interesting and underrated mons for any of the play styles though.

    I think Sand is very underrated, and the most underplayed of the lower tier weathers.

    Rain's already being explored in another project, and I suck at everything else, so Sun sounds awesome :] Seriously though, the number of effective Sun sweepers, backed by the presence of Cresselia and the rise in exploitable stuff like Poliwrath seriously makes for some cool options.

    Trick Room would be an interesting option. We lost arguably the best OTR sweeper in Cofagrigus, but we did gain Cresselia. How will the new Trick Room look like?

    Gravity because it's probably the weirdest option on the list and the least used. While I don't think a team based on gravity will be very spectacular it would be cool to see people trying their best to make it work.

    cress can set up gravity at least, golurk can both set and abuse it, and pretty much everything with EQ will appreciate gravity. Plus gravity makes stone miss, focus miss, and storm miss actually hit for once. I want to see how this does, lol.
