Rate of the Week
Welcome to Rate of the Week! This is a project that looks to bring quality individual rates into the spotlight and recognizes the hard work of unbadged raters. Here's how it will work:
  • Each week, official Team Raters will be paying close attention to the RMT forum and reading the rates posted in their respective tiers. They will then shortlist a few which will be in contention for the Rate of the Week award.
  • From the pool of shortlisted rates, one will be chosen which most exemplifies the qualities of an excellent rate. That rater will be the winner for that particular tier!
  • A post will be made by an official TR who specialises in that tier, explaining how and why the particular rate won. This will allow aspiring raters to gain an idea of what constitutes high-quality rates, and hopefully incorporate those aspects into their own rates.
  • There will be multiple winners every week, one from OU and a couple from other tiers depending on the quality of the rates posted. We hope that in this way we can expand rating activity in less popular tiers, while maintaining a weekly OU winner.
  • Official Team Raters are eligible to win, but unbadged raters will have priority since that is the main focus of this project.
So what's in it for the winners? Well, they will earn a place in the Hall of Fame, which will be kept in the OP of every thread, and will earn more consideration for the Ladybug
and Team Rater
badges. Also, after gaining three places in the Hall of Fame, a rater will be eligible to earn voice status in the RMT room on PS! on the condition that they've shown an interest in getting involved.

We hope that this project will encourage people to put more effort into their rates and become better and more experienced raters, which will consequently increase the quality as well as the quantity of rates in the forum. Good luck to you all!

This week's winner is MFJr King who made a solid rate. He starts off his rate by naming threats to the team being Volcarona, Mega Gyarados, Greninja, Celesteela and Gengar while also mentioning how the team struggles to break through balance teams. He then suggest a change of Tapu Lele to Specs Ash Greninja. This change gives the team more speed control was also giving the team more momentum with u-turn and giving free switch ins for other team memebers. He then recommends Rockium Landorus-t over Rocky Helmet giving the team more offensive pressure making it easier to break through teams and mons like Skarmory and Celesteela. His next recommendation is Scarf Keldeo over Scarf Heatran. This gave the team a better way to handle Volcarona and dark types like Greninja. He also recommended Mew over Tapu fini which gives the team a more reliable defogger and check to Medicam-Mega. His final recommendation is to run Close Combat over Earthquake on Pinsir-Mega, allowing Pinsir to have a better way to hit Skarmory and Celesteela.

Thanks to his rate MFJr King has earned himself a spot in the hall of fame. Congratulation!
