IN-GAME TEAM HELP RULES
Welcome to the In-Game Team Help sub-forum! Here you can post your in-game and non-competitive teams and have them critiqued and improved by other helpful members. You are not required to include EVs, IVs, and such in your thread unlike CBC. However, there are still a few rules you need to familiarize yourself with. Contact Wolflare or Luke if you need to ask any questions regarding the forum.


THE BASICS
— Follow all PokéCommunity Rules.

— Teams must be for in-game or non-competitive purposes.
Competitive teams belong in the main section of CBC.

— Respect all members regardless of their skill level.
In-game teams don't require complex strategies and perfectly trained Pokémon to be successful. Yet, this doesn't mean that they aren't worth rating. The old standard line of "anything works in-game" doesn't cut it here. While it may be true to an extent, teams can still be improved upon regardless if it's in-game or competitive.

POSTING TEAMS
— Teams don't have to include six Pokémon.
However, all team members must have movesets listed. It is also preferred if you add other information such as natures, items, and Abilities; though, they aren't required. Please use something resembling the following format when listing each Pokémon:

Pokémon @ Item
Ability (if required)
Nature
- Move 1
- Move 2
- Move 3
- Move 4

— You must be willing to change anything or take constructive criticism.
The purpose of this forum is for people that are seeking help with in-game Pokémon. If you only want to hear positive comments, do not post. Shooting down all advice will likely result in an infraction and certainly the thread being locked.

— Descriptions are recommended, but not required.
Descriptions help raters understand how your team works. If they aren't aware of your strategy, they might have difficulty rating your team properly.

RATING TEAMS
— Explain your suggestions.
In-game teams usually have plenty of room for improvement, so be as helpful as possible. Proposing changes to a team without explaining why won't help the team owner at all.

— No rating rates.
You are allowed to respectfully disagree with any rate posted, but remember that this forum is for rating teams, not rating rates. If you think that someone else's suggestion will not work, make one yourself to keep the ball rolling or else the original poster will be left out in the cold.
