Playstyle Classification Thread
Credit to Molk and Oglemi for helping with the OP.
Hey RU Players! The purpose of this thread is to help you to easily find Pokemon that fit a specific role you're looking for. Need a strong physical sweeper? Just take a look at the list under the roles of an offensive team. The categories will have a link to the Pokemon's analysis and the set(s) that fit into the listed role.
The list is small right now, so it's your job to fill in the lists of Pokemon in each role. Suggest viable Pokemon that fit into a certain category and try to give a small explanation of what the Pokemon does and why it fits there. If you don't see a specific playstyle or role that you are looking for, please make a suggestion to add it! Don't be overwhelmed right now, as you can just add 1-2 Pokemon if you would like.
Here are the list of playstyles so you can quickly access them:
- [jump=2]Bulky Offense[/jump]
- [jump=6]Trick Room[/jump]
- [jump=10]Niche Roles[/jump]
Balance: Balance is a mix of offense and defense. It will usually include both powerful attackers, tanks, and defensive supporters.
VoltTurn: VoltTurn is a strategy that puts pressure on the opponent by constantly dealing damage and switching out through the usage of Volt Switch and U-turn.
Volt Switch Users:
Trick Room Setters:
Niche Roles: These Pokemon play a very niche or unique role that can't be attributed to one type of team. Other Pokemon will usually be chosen before these are considered, but they can fit onto very specific types of teams.
