PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

What are the rules for the Battle Subway?

0 votes

I want to ask a question about recommendations for a hyper-offensive team. Am I allowed to do this if I do not want to have super-specific IVs and stats, or can I just ask what Pokemon?

Battle Subway Rules

Competitive teams only: In other words, teams for competitive battling with other people or the advanced post-game sections like Battle Subway, Battle Tower or Pokemon World Tournament. No teams for regular gameplay: there are too many variables for these questions to be useful, and in-game teams do not need much work, just a variety of Pokemon types and moves.

Full teams only: In general this means 6 Pokemon for 6v6 singles. Doubles teams would be 4 Pokemon. If you don't have a 6th Pokemon then put something in and say you are not sure about it and would like more suggestions.

Include all relevant details: This means all 4 moves for each Pokemon and each Pokemon's ability, nature and EVs (Effort Values). If you don't know about EVs then take a few moments to read our detailed EV guide here. If you are still not sure, put in something basic (e.g. max attack, max speed for a physical sweeper).

Learn team-building 101: Know the difference between Physical/Special/Status category moves. Know that using two attacking moves of the same type is best avoided (with some exceptions).

Only answer if you have notable improvements: In other words, don't answer with just one minor suggestion, unless you are really sure there is nothing else at all to be improved.

Respect people's choices: This applies to both questions and answers. Saying someone's team sucks isn't really helpful. And if someone has taken the time to answer, don't just dismiss them.

^ The rules are written here; please read them.

We don't recommend Pokemon, we only rate full teams on the RMT, meaning you need 6 Pokemon for singles, EVs, natures, items and abilities.
