I'm your rational mind.
Stop voting in the poll, it's over. Read the whole OP to find out where we are in the CC-A-T Process. Thanks!Welcome to the Little Cup edition of Community Create-A-Team! This is where us Little Cup players work together to create a competitive team. The overall goal of this project is to get players involved in creating a Little Cup team, rather than just posting RMTs for people to use. Also, let's have fun while doing it.
Origin of thread derived from here, and the first attempt at C-A-T can be found here. I am using a slightly different process since Little Cup is very different from OU, but I kept it as similar as possible.
Please stay on topic. If we are discussing the the Pokemon we are basing the team around, please refrain from changing the topic.
This is going to be a competitive team.
Try to avoid "theorymon" as much as possible (there will be some, obviously, as the LC ladder isn't as active as the OU ladder).
Step 1 (Poll is going up around Oct 4th): We are going to start by picking which forgotten Pokemon (and set) we are going to be basing the team around. This does NOT mean the Pokemon has to be the late game sweeper, it means the team will be built around that Pokemon, whatever role it plays. This thread is for nominating Pokemon to be added to a poll (Pokemon that you think fit the description of a "forgotten" Pokemon). After a couple of days (probably around one-two days, until enough pokemon are in the poll (around 10)), I will select which Pokemon are going to be in the poll that will be posted after we decide on a list of Pokemon. This means you have to convince me, and others, that your Pokemon is worth being put in the vote.
Note: A "Forgotten Wonder" is something is less used then the average OU Pokemon / set, but is still powerful enough to be used in the standard metagame. So no Caterpies, Magikarp, Beldum, Etc. Thanks.
Note 2: You can suggest forgotten "sets", for example SubCroagunk is an option even though Priority Gunk is quite popular.
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.
Step 3: We select Pokemon that work well around our Pokemon and fit the team style and test it.
Step 4: We finalize the team and write up a 5-star RMT!
Step 1 Complete! Wynaut is the Forgotten Hero we will be basing our competitive team around!
Wobbuffet Jr. (suggested by MGX):
Wynaut @ Oran Berry
Ability: Shadow Tag
EVs: 76 HP / 212 Def / 212 SDef (a different spread with a point in Spe over HP is also viable)
-Safeguard / Destiny Bond
Wynaut is the ultimate teammate for set up Pokemon and for counting Scarfed Pokemon. With it's very respectable HP and defenses, Wynaut can take a hit and use Encore, allowing you to Counter physical attacks, Mirror Coat special attacks, Safeguard vs status attacks, and / or switch out to a Pokemon who is barely touched by the attack being used by your opponent. This gives set up Pokemon a free turn to set up whatever they want, meaning it could get very dangerous really fast. Wynaut has always been forgotten because of the fact that it doesn't have great defensive typing (e.g., is weak to U-turn), is slow, and will likely get KOed before it does something. However, when Wynaut is placed on the right team, with the right pokemon, it will likely help another one of your Pokemon end the game, or come close to it on a regular basis.
STEP 2 COMPLETE!
Team Style: Standard Offense
Topic: Team Parings (Sweepers (2-3) alongside Wynaut, followed by lead and Revenge killers).
