    I can see why the number generator is used. If we chose the Pokemon, then all the good Pokemon would be done at from the start, and nearing the end of the generation, all that would be left would be the BU and NU Pokemon along with most of the UU Pokemon. It wouldn't be fun at all.
    No, people would still pick those Pokemon lol. It'd be Pokemon that no one remembers like at all, such as I dunno Claydol?

    To be perfectly honest, we could probably have votes on certain Pokemon and still have more than enough to go through. There's probably somewhere around 300+ Pokemon that are either good or at least viable in one of Ubers, OU, UU, RU, and NU, which would give us about 6 years worth of material. However, the advantage of the RNG is that it is impartial, eliminating any hurt feelings about someone's pick not being chosen or something. It also shakes things up since every once in a while, it's kinda fun to get a PU Pokemon and try to come up with sets for it that actually work.

    So yeah, I do think voting would actually be possible as far as raw numbers go, but it's probably best to stick with the RNG.

    Plus voting would mean even more work for Miror and we don't want our bby getting overworked (Now go close some RMT's and approve clans for us you sexy little ~~~)

    I think I can understand the vale of the Random Number Generator in terms of picking ever pokemon of the week.

    But as far as the chosen pokemon go from the very start of Black and white, I can't recall which tier had the most pokemon. My guess is that either Ubers (movie release rerasons), OU, and NU get the most pokemon presented on this generation's POTW. All I'm hoping is that before October 12, we will have an equal amount of pokemon from every tier (Can't sat much from little cup since we already start fusing them with their evolutions, with a couple misses. Like, where's Gligar? or Togetic?). Hopefully.

    With the 5th gen competitive game-play coming to its near end in about a months time and the start of the new 6th Gen. I feel like there should atleast be another Week Special covering each Gens Starters in the 5th gen competitive game-play scenario.

    Out of the 15 Starters, only 5 have been covered so far with the 5th gen perspective (the Unova Starters, Venusaur & Chrizard). This leaves us with 10 other to cover.

    I feel that there is a need to cover all the Starters (as well as update the other 5 articles), as these Starter pokemons are special and should deserve more focus especially at the end of each Gen.

    I think it would be much easier to do a type based Starters Week Special covering all the 3 types Starters in the span of 3 weeks.

    Unfortunately, we're going to be too busy for this, but we'll likely do something similar in Gen VI.

    For the record, assuming we have enough data by then, we'll be beginning our Gen VI Pokémon of the Week in November

    Um... Uh... I really don't know where else I can go to ask this. With regards to today's POTW on Togekiss... I was wondering why there wasn't a pre-evo corner for Togetic? Even since I saw Chansey's pre-evo corner, I was really looking forward to seeing what there would be to say about Togetic.

    But there's nothing there! I don't understand... Togetic can use the eviolite quite well, can't it? Why didn't he get a mention? I waited so patiently for this moment, and I somehow feel that I got... I don't know how else to put it. Ripped off? I don't think I'll be satisfied until I learn why there isn't a pre-evo corner today. I'd just like to know is all.

    Wouldn't it make sense to start Gen VI POTW when all Egg Moves are found?

    im sorry but this random selection is a bit too much.
    pokemon of the week this week is Macargo? AGAIN??
    at least try to bring up pokemon that have been updated, or pokemon that werent in 5th gens pokemon of the week. its bore some to see the same pokemon.
    keep it random then but exclude the pokemon from last gen of the week unless theyve been updated. comon please.

    No one might see this NOW (as of 2014) but, as a suggestion, we should do a pokemon every week, from one generation. By this, I'm saying we should have say, Arcanine, Garydos, Charizrd, and Zapdos. BOOM! An entire month is covered. Do you see what I mean?
