I don't see the point of elemental punching Snorlax unless it's for the surprise factor. TBH, I kind of like it, since it provides decent coverage. (I still prefer the Smogon variants because of how effective they are; Smogon is where I look up Pokemon for move sets)
And as for Absol: I looked at its D/P Smogon article and the set you made. I realized that your set lacked a way to deal with Steel Pokemon and Superpower is pretty much its only way of dealing with them.
Maybe in the future, as a suggestion, you can look up the Pokemon you're about to do in Smogon?
(sorry for flaming you, just had to get my thoughts out there; FYI, I base my strategies and suggestions around Smogon's)
Well, my idea comes from the fact that there is so much untapped potential in the 5th Gen. It's like.. rating individual Pokemon sets instead of teams. Zoroark, for example. I noticed that everyone just says, "this is the way it works forever and ever" and I couldn't help but to think... "well, why not?". It's not so much writing reviews for a Pokemon, but picking a Pokemon and coming up with "best case hypothetical situations" for new sets. Theorymon, to be precise.
So like, a new member shows up and says, "Okay, I've got an idea for a set. It's a Rain Dance Charizard". And then the raters can show up and basically say, "Okay, that wouldn't work because of *insert facts*, but it might work during *insert hypothetical scenario*". As you can tell, this idea is in its infancy and highly undeveloped. Just pretend that all the sets you posted in your thread were sets that you came up with and we all responded accordingly. That's what I'm going for here.
Personally, I don't know if this is going to take off. But I'm thinking of posting one of my own soon, just to test it out. This isn't going to be a carbon copy of your reviews, but I still felt obligated to let you know that it was your post that gave me this idea. Your involvement (in my head) would be that of a "poster" (someone who can come up with a new set) and a rater (the person who rates someone elses set) which is what I would hope for everybody, to be honest. As for my involvement in your reviews, I don't know. xD; I'd love to help as a fact checker or something small like that. It seems like a lot of work so I'd love to take some of that load off of you and participate! I've got some pretty cool skills in CSS and organization. Why don't you pick me out a Pokemon to review and I'll PM you a resume of sorts?
Hey there! I just wanted to tell you that I think you've got a cool thing going on here with your Pokemon reviews. I really appreciate you making reliable sets for certain Pokemon and I think it could be very valuable for new members. I'd love to be a part of it somehow.
I'm talking to some other members about making this a part of the CBC. And you're review concept is the seed of this idea, so I'll keep you in the loop about this.
