# Thread: Regarding our selection process

1. going to start infracting complete tools.

2. People need to stop repeating the same sets over and over again.
So, for example, if one person says:
Magikarp@Choice Band
4 HP, 252 Att, 252 Spe
Jolly
-Flail
-Tackle
-Bounce
-Splash

And then someone else goes:
Magikarp@Choice Scarf
4 HP, 252 Att, 252 Spe
-Flail
-Splash
-Tackle
-Bounce

What is the point!?!?!?!
Just quote the guy and state that you could run ~~~~ with changing the ~~~~.
People repeating the same frickin' set, just altering the slightest details, including grammar mistakes, does not help.

Requesting my custom infraction then please!!!!!

Nah seriously why are people complaining at this point; we're using a random number generator and it seems to be working. If there's some special event or something then maybe we could do a specific pokemon (say, a mew event, and then we do mew as the potw) but otherwise, it seems fine the way things are going now.

Despite sharing the same moves, EVs and nature a Choice Band and Choice Scarf Pokemon play completely differently.

5. I think you guys should do a Clefable.Literally, their movesets are so diverse and are really rare too`.

6. ARGH. Man, do people know how to read at all?
Ok, read the last few pages and wait for Clefairy to come.

I know that, but it was just an example, I am just trying to say that too many people repeat the same sets. It doesn't really help.

8. You know i think to make the selection process more fair, you guys (sppf staff) should make a poll for it

9. I have an idea. One week, you use the RNG, and the next week you take a request, and alternate. This way, people have a say while keeping it random.

A poll with other 300 options would definitely not work.
The max is 4, and then, SPPF Staff would have to choose what 4. And it will still not please people, so say that 30 people choose a Magikarp, 30 other people choose a Feebas, what will happen.
People will still complain about it.

11. use the rng to choose 2-10 poke the week before you would open for sets
then the winner(coin generator for ties) is the new potw
so this would take effect week 18 if you start it next week
just open a thread with a poll and lock posts for a week then announce the winner and let the sets start.......

12. okay, so you suggest generating it randomly anyway? making massive effort for something that's random anyway and probably not what people want?

what's the point of that?

13. however it leaves room for things like i dont know butterfree from being chosen early and taking up a slot for a highly used pokemon like excadril
it removes some of the bad choices without you literally pulling them....there are ~345 pokemon to cover...this way we can satisfy more people at once.....

14. how? people will be pissed regardless of what is picked, and there will be arguments about people voting for the wrong pokemon.

That is so true. I like random stuff a lot, and was kinda surprised that Politoed and Whimsicod(I STILL CANT SPELL IT) got chosen so early. I guess it all goes down to luck...

16. No-one has complained so far(except from that guy that is begging for the Electric-Bug thing, I forgot its name).
That must mean that they prefer it this way, instead of Polls, because if you do Polls, the best Pokémon will be chosen first because the incredible amount of N00BS in this section will think:

.

Nuff said.
Sorry for rampage.

17. im saying that you don't allow discussion on the voting thread.....
that way those who would say 'i voted for_____' wont get lambasted by others

18. But Pokémon like Luxray will never be chosen if Pokémon like Electivire are in it.

19. We will never do voting.

This is the most fair way to do it. End of.

I don't think voting should be used either. The way I see it, the Pokemon of the week is chosen at random and then users would either submit tactics they use with that specific Pokemon or try and find out new strategies that could be used. Somewhat like a small challenge to see what the best strategies the community can come up with?

I mean, sure everyone can come up with amazing strategies for the good Pokemon that would be voted in week after week, but when a not so good one finds its way in it gives the users a bit of a challenge to come up with the strategies.

Just my opinion.

21. what about using a short lists of favorites that havent been done yet (ie chandelure, electross, hydeigon, NOT asking just pointing out the obvious), then using RNG to pick them?

also would it be possible to post base stats in the profile too?

That would be nice... not that the POTWs aren't already amazing, I love reading them over. ^_^

23. I wonder how Blaziken's POTW would be done... Since I don't see any use for him in Ubers.

And yeah, Base Stats would be nice too...

24. DW Blaziken is banished in Smogon Tiers right? And yea, Blaziken in Ubers is too overwhelmed. Those he outspeeds, he can't kill, while they kill him in 1 hit. Those that outspeed him will also murder him. Besides, he would have that much turns to live...

25. And who would actually use Blaziken in Ubers?
