Agreed. Almost everthing on this section of the forum is in-game now, which really lessens the quality of it. It's fine when Mana or Regice posts an in-game team for competitive battling, but so many people are just posting in-game teams and asking for rates, which I don't understand. Since anything works in the game, what's the point? Thanks and take care.

We do our best to keep that under control....I don't have mod powers, so the most I can do is call issues to the attention of the mods.

It is getting rediculous, though...we really need to be more strict about it.

Er...we need to be harsh about it, we do it out of frustration. There are so many people who just ignore that rule and it gets old really quick. If we're not going to enforce the rules, than why have rules at all?

Well, keep in mind the big "DONT POST IN GAME TEAM" thing wasn't in big letters in the first post. I put it there now, so maybe things will be better =)

(Besides, I'm not frustrated, so don't you be, or else I'll be sad )

Right....I noticed that; good thinking about adding it to the first page. it was pretty much me yelling in anguish a while back.

I just hate seing the first page being clogged with pointless in game threads, pushing off some meaningful discussions...how often do you check the second pages of these forums? :P

*Zam curbs his frustration*

Oh, and me getting Emerald and wanting to train more competitive pokemon in Emerald has prompted my return to this board. I'm not all that great at movesets, but I'm always willing to lend a hand, and I always have more to learn in here.

Mana, even if you don't want to be strict, it would really improve the quality of this board to just lock threads that contain in-game teams like Alakazam said. This board needs to get back on the track of competitive teams (both for the cartridges and NetBattle). I really don't see the point of "Rate my Ruby team that contains Kyogre" threads and the like. Please, try to enforce this rule to some extent. Even if you don't want to lock threads, just reply to them saying please don't post in-game threads. Thanks. Take care.

These have been here for a while and haven't been updated (most of our hardcore competetive battlers have left) but either make a thread or post in the moveset discussion thread.

Well, you can't. Nor can you post a team in this thread. Nor can you post a team without movesets, EVs, Natures, and Items. Nor can you post an In-game team. Read the rules and try again.

RULES

1) Don't act like a moron.
===> Don't run around screaming someone's cheating for using gameshark or just act as if you have no brains. This is an intellectual forums. People have opinions. Whether or not their opinion agrees with yours are different. If someone has a different opinion, DO consider their opinion and negotiate rationally. If it comes down to flamewars, do it via PM.

2) Don't act like a smartass.
===> If someone has a different opinion from yours, one of which is a considerable idea (Eg: Tackle on Golem is NOT a considerable idea.), please do not try to prove your idea's superiority with trivial things like "OMFG YOU CANT SPEEL I WIN". Not only does it violate rule #1, it makes your argument much weaker because you seem to have problem coming up with counterclaims.
Punishment for Violation: I will edit or delete your post, depending on my mood; edits, of course, would be fun.

3) Patience
===> Are we lifeless losers around 24/7? No! So don't bump threads going "OMFG HELP ME DAMNIT" unless it's been a week and your question is not answered yet.
Punishment for Violation: I will edit or delete your post, depending on my mood. Edits, of course, would be fun things.

4) Don't double post. There's an edit button for a reason. Obvious? Yes. Followed? Not always.

5) Please post complete sets, see below for what to include in a complete movesets. If you don't post a complete moveset then we don't know exactly what you want out of a certain Pokemon, leaving many holes.

6) If you want to discuss an individual Pokemon then list everything that applies in detail, such as base stats, potential Physical and Special movepools (whichever apply), and potential items/berries that can be used.
a. Also, please don't rate teams with the intent to "edit in bold". I know you're trying to help, but it doesn't explain why the author should use your recommendation.
That's pretty much it here. Other rules regarding team posting and rating can be found on the sticky below, titled exactly that.

Other things

=> We're here to have fun, or just have intellectual debates about strategies in pokemon. This is NOT where you ask how to get thunderwave on Jolteon. This is NOT where you advertise your site. This is NOT where you come and say "That's a good team." If your comment is "Your team is good," PM The person please. Also, please use proper formatting, it's so much easier to read and will answer some questions as to why some pleas for movesets are ignored.

=> When in a debate, consider your opponent's argument before responding. Show courtesy by reading their entire post, understand their point, and then provide counterarguments. Posts violating this rule will be severely ridiculed. In other words, read everything before you start spouting out pros and cons.

=> No flaming. This rule may be violated if the victim of the flame violates rule #2. Not to mention that, in the end, you can make yourself feel real worthless.

I can be flexible...

sometimes.

Any other questions regarding rules should be posted here.
==============================================
There are many things that we should know when posting a team. We all assume that we all know these things, but some people do not (and that's olay.) In this thread, you'll find out just what 'those things' are.

First of all, only post Neo-Elite Four teams here. What I mean by "Neo Elite Four" is that you've already beaten the Elite Four, and your pokémon are completely geared towards being as powerful and as efficient as possible (rather than knowing moves like Fly and Cut to make your way through the game).

NOTE: there is a thread for Elite Four teams now, so, if you get caught asking for Elite Four teams and/or movesets then appropriate actions will be taken.

When posting your team, remember to include the following:

-which games the team is for (D/P, R/S, G/S/C, or R/B/Y)

-What pokémon it is (you may include the nickname, but make sure you list the species as well)

-what moves each pokémon knows

-what item each pokémon is holding (use the @ in front of the item)

-what characteristic each pokémon has (like Chlorophyll, Overgrow, Trace, etc.)

-what personality each pokémon has (Brave, Shy, Rash, etc.)

-What EV training it has had

In summation, use the following format:

*[Pokemon's Name]
-Item:
-Nature:
-Ability:
-EV Distribution:
-Moveset:

You don't have to use this verbatim, but just use something that makes your request easier to grant. Not to mention that it's pain to see half-arsed efforts when making movesets; it dissuades people from giving you help and you may just be forgotten due to the lack of credibility of your posts. Most of all, it's an eyesore to see something that looks like something conjured from an instant message. Also, use common sense and realize that the bold/italics/underlines are only for emphasizing my point, so don't use them!
If you decide not to make such a format then your thread will be dismissed by means of a lock. In other words, your thread will be locked!
>>>>

THINGS YOU SHOULDN'T INCLUDE IN POSTING YOUR TEAM

-your pokémon's stats
-your pokémon's level

P.S. If you deliberately post an in-game team and/or a team that looks like something conjured without effort then expect your thread to be locked without further discussion.
THANK YOU FOR THIS dude tons of people need to see this >.< i mean seruisly please consider this to people who just say there pokemon names they really need to look at this post
