Some PS teambuilder Easter eggs, try typing these in as the Pokémon species: birdjesus, neckboy, smogonbird, ygod

PS. The 890 in my username is pronounced "eight ninety."  Not "eight nine zero," not "eight hundred ninety," not "eighty-nine zero."  It's just "eight ninety."  IT'S. NOT. THAT. HARD.

Yeah, these are all fair points. To be honest, this probably warrants its own discussion on the Meta section. I know I like to go for the least complicated and most consistent rule, but if there are lots of others like yourself who don't feel that way about this, maybe we start running a few extra threads.
Regardless, we should get Pokemaster involved if we're making decisions, so I'll make a note to get a thread up about it. I've been meaning to make a post about the moveset threads for a different reason, so I can kill two birds with one stone I guess!

I've actually been thinking about that for a while now. My main concern with it is to do with Eevee falling within a group of Pokemon like Slowpoke and Clamperl that have multiple evolution lines -- it's unclear where movesets for those Pokemon belong.
Opening a separate thread for them is one solution, and certainly makes sense for ones like Eevee and Clamperl that are/were viable in reasonably prominent metagames. But the thought of having a Cosmog or Wurmple thread is a bit funny, and I want to settle on something consistent for all of them. Maybe we simply pick one final form to have the sets for their unevolved forms?
