So may I start a new topic to create some discussion? ^^

What do you think makes a Pokemon ideal for contests?

For me, its all down to how you can express their unique personalities. Something like a Meowth for example needs to be using sly and cunning moves using its charm/cuteness as a ploy, whereas something like a Machoke needs to be using power to impressive the judges. This is mostly reflected in the moves that you choose for the Pokemon (which must be diverse or they won't do well in a contest!) but you can also make them shine by increasing their sheen in certain areas via poffins. So in summary, a perfect contest Pokemon is one that's well fed on the right type of poffin with a wide move pool and a unique trait separating it from other Pokemon.
