Hello, and welcome to the Serebii CCAT (Community Create A Team) thread! As the name suggests, this thread is all about creating a team in a community, helping some of the less experienced players play with better teams, helping them get used to the metagame - but still teams that they have at least helped to create.
So, you may be wondering, how does this work? We go through several processes in creating the team, each one of them extremely important. Decisions are made through vote, helping the community create a team that they all like.
Processes in the CCAT
Choose the first member of the team.
This will be the pokemon that the team is based around. First, everyone posts a pokemon that they would like to see the team based around. Then, five of the most contributing members to Serebii will each decide which is their favorite. From these five, the community will vote on the pokemon that the team is based around.
Decide what playstyle the team will be.
At this stage, we will have another vote. All of the playstyles in the current metagame will be listed, and we will decide which to use, depending on the pokemon we chose for the first process. Choosing a playstyle at this stage will help us mould the team well in later processes.
Choose, with careful deliberation, the rest of the team.
Here, one by one, we choose the other 5 members of the team, according to the playstyle we chose. Sometimes we may pick two pokemon at once, if they synergise with each other. This process is by far the longest, as there is the most work to do.
Test the team, and put forward improvements.
We will, at this stage, have a full team. We will all test it on PO, and then give our laddering peaks, to see how good the team is. Some of us may want to give improvements, which will then be voted yes, or no for. After we are all happy with the team, this process is over.
Make an RMT -
so that the Serebii community has easy access to the team.
We will then write an RMT to show the team to the Serebii community, and so that everyone has easy access to it. This will be a role model RMT to help newer players to see how to make an RMT. When we are making the RMT, the thread will have constant updates so that everyone can see what it is like so far, and give help in making the RMT. In this process, help with xat may be used.
Choose tier of next CCAT
Nominate and choose a tier to make a CCAT for.
Choose leader of next CCAT
The leader of the next CCAT will be nominated and chosen, based off of knowledge of the selected tier and activity and usefulness in this thread. Leaders of one CCAT can not lead the next one, but they could lead more later on.

Obviously, this is a very extensive list of questions, that you might be unwilling to go through. If you try and do the Overview Questions, and one or two of the Pokemon Questions, that would be enough to help a lot. It would be appreciated if you did all of them though, but we recommend you do them over a period of time. The RMT phase will be open for a while, so you should be able to get them all done while only doing one a day.HTML Code:Pokemon Questions - Please answer these questions for each pokemon What do you feel this pokemon adds to the team? What do you feel the item does? What do you feel the EV spread achieves? What does the specific moveset do?
