Choosing your teams

*insert Karen's quote from the Elite 4 about strong and weak Pokemon*

Anyhow, ignoring that. How do YOU personally choose what Pokemon you want on your team. Stats? Appearance? Evolutions? A combination of methods?

For me, I normally pick which is cutest (lame I know) or my favorite types. I don't battle competitively so I don't mind if I pick the "weakest" Pokemon.

For single player I just pick who I like as I find them, but still try to keep a well rounded team!

For online, pretty much the same idea but I go much deeper into looking at their exact stats, move pool, and how I can make them all sync together as a team! However I usually end up with awkward movesets that make me laugh when I use them online, but I'm having fun anyway

I've always made a team of my favorites. This gen they work together well enough for the competitive scene too.

Depends, for the first generation it was based off of the ones from the show, with the exception of Abra, I always try to choose the Pokemon based off of Ash's team. Any other time, it's simply based off of the design I like the most

Yeah that's how I try to do it. There are some Pokemon I think are really cool and I'm happy they seem to be doing well online with the right team, such as Avalugg.

During the playthrough I pick up anything I like as I go along, or things I wouldn't usually use. When I'm making a "competitive" team I list all my favourites then choose 6 I think would be a decent team.

I pick cute pokemon, and one's I just plain like. My teams always suck competitively, which is why I don't really play against others.

Yeah that's the same for me. The majority of my team on X was all over the place because I just picked the cute ones.
