Pokémon Training, Competitive Battling and Team Improvement
Hello! Welcome to Pimp My Team, a place where Pokémon Trainers go to get help getting the most mileage out of their teams in competitive play. This community is for everyone to partake in, whether you're a n00b, a full-on expert or fall somewhere in between. We welcome input from all points of view.

There is one thing we ask though; please keep in mind that some people choose their favorite Pokémon. So when pimping a team, please try to give suggestions for improving the user's already-in-place Pokémon rather than suggesting replacements.

- No flames
- No plagiarism... i.e., don't steal someone else's team and claim it as your own. You will be banned.

...err, that's about it, really.
