    Round 1 / Round 2
    props to:
    Keiran for the great banner....yet again
    MMF for the original, he'll probably take this back over for the next round
    DTC for formatting of the original
    Zebraiken for being a loser

    Hello! Are you new to the tier and not quite sure how to build effective teams? Have no fear, we are here to help you! Welcome to Teambuilding 101. Teambuilding 101 is a project designed to help you with teambuilding strategies by showing you how the top team builders of the tier make their teams. This will be a bi-weekly project; which means that every other week we will be switching out team builders to keep it fresh and give you guys multiple perspectives on the different ways of teambuilding.

    So how will this work? Well, we’ll start out with a voting period. In these two days we will be voting on what playstyle/Pokemon the team builders will be building around. After a playstyle has been used, I will scratch it off so we always have a new playstyle each time. I’ll be putting up options every other week and then two days later...the team builders begin their task of crafting a team! These players will be making posts to keep us updated on how everything is going so far and walk us through why they have made the choices that they’ve made. If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas, or suggestions for the builder leave a post for them to respond to.

    After these 3 days of straight teambuilding (LO!L) our team builders will come back with their team and give us in-depth detail about their team and the teambuilding process. I will post them in the OP of the thread and stockpile them so don’t worry if you miss it! I will get it up as soon as possible. This will also go on the NU Hub at some point so be sure to check that out as well! Once we’ve done a few of these I may have a special surprise for all of you who have been watching on the sidelines and want to have some fun with these teams ;)

    Our team builders for this week will be Django, DTC, and EBeast! (If you’d like to be one of our team builders for another week, PM me on the forums. Let me know and I’ll see what I can do.) We encourage you to use these teams on the ladder to get used to the metagame, but know that this is meant to help you better your team building skills so that you can start doing it yourself.

    Let the fun begin!​
    --

    All of the above was in the original thread, but there are also a few things I'd like to clarify. First, we'll follow the same process - nominate which playstyle you'd like to see out of these builders, but don't nominate Offense as that's what we did last time. You will have 48 hours to vote, and then we'll move onto teambuilding. I'll try to keep us to a strict time limit, so just nudge me if this thread goes inactive and I'll try to keep pestering our builders, alright? :)

    Weather. It is very potent in this metagame and there are a lot of underutilized & interesting Pokemon within sets that can be used to take advantage of it.
