we should totally just stab caesar!
If you feel like simply sharing a team or two with the community, or maybe want some general opinions or discussion on a team, this is the thread for you! This thread is the place for people to post teams without having to make an RMT; if you feel like showing off a squad without having to make a thread, this is the place to do it. Keep in mind that if your post is incoherent or your team unfinished or unpolished, we reserve the right to delete your post.
We still have some guidelines to follow though:
- Make sure your team has been tested! This team could possibly be used as resource so having substandard teams is a no-no.
- Make sure to include an importable and a description for your team! Describe how it works, how it plays out, anything special about a set, stuff like that.

This is a random team that I built a few months ago, basically I just felt like building with Torterra and winging it from there. I started out with Mega Charizard Y + Torterra, figuring that there could be some synergy between the two and that Wide Guard can support the former. At that point, it went from supporting the duo by getting stuff that can deal with threats; Scrafty was somewhat useful for limiting physical attackers with Intimidate and dealing with Hydreigon, while Substitute Aegislash is there to deal with Latios and other stuff while giving me another possible wincon. Offensive Thundurus is there for the speed control, as decent-ish bird answer, and as another answer to Waters because heck yeah screw them; it's also there to just give the team more of a punch as an attacker. HP Ice is because Hydreigon is a PTA, not like I'll miss Flash Cannon for Mega Diancie since Thunderbolt will still hit like a truck and I have plenty of ways around it. Kyurem-B is there for the Speed safety net and serves as a way to gun down opposing Scarf Landorus-T, with Rock Slide as the final move for reasons you should already know. Overall, this is just a fun squad that I use occasionally, it's good enough that I could prolly use it in a serious tour game lol but yeah.
What is the purpose of this thread?
As stated above, this thread is meant to be a place where anyone can post a team they want to share with everyone without having to write a full RMT. This is not a place to dump your entire builder, but a place to showcase teams you think represent your best work or an innovative strategy. You even have a chance to be featured in the Team Showcase (coming soon)! Additionally, this can be a place for discussion about teambuilding trends or ideas. Posts like this one or this one, for example, now have a new home!
What is the difference between this thread and the Team Showcase?
In order to highlight the best teams in the tier, we decided to create the Sample Teams and Team Showcase thread (coming soon). That thread will contain sample teams in their classic form in the OP, but will also have other standout teams populating the rest of the thread. That thread will be permanently locked, and only teams posted in this thread deemed worthy of further praise will be moved to that thread. In order to be eligible for consideration for the Team Showcase thread, your post must have the following:
- Full importable of the team
- Coherent and sufficient description of the team (nothing too fancy, around a paragraph is ideal)
- Sprites in some form (who doesn't love a good aesthetically pleasing post)
