The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier.
Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup

Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.
I meant to post this earlier, but my mom's been pretty sick, so I've had to escort her to doctors. Plus, her cataracts are getting bad, which means surgery is around the corner, which only fills her with dread.
Anyway, while I appreciate the ideas (I faved it because you were being helpful), I've come to notice a fair few glaring holes in this suggestion. There are a lot of shared weaknesses among this group. 3 weak to Water (Lycanroc, Salazzle, Tyranitar), 3 weak to Fairy (Hawlucha, Goodra, Tyranitar), 3 weak to Ice (Decidueye, Hawlucha, Goodra), and 3 weak to Ground (Lycanroc, Salazzle, Tyranitar). That's a lot of shared weaknesses. While Hawlucha and Salazzle are very good options (since a lot of Alola Mons are slower than a Metapod in molasses, plus both pack a hell of a punch), Goomy requires Rain + SOS to find, which is too time consuming (that and SOS battles are terrible to begin with, given it's almost like a roulette wheel), and it requires overworld Rain to evolve into Goodra. That's a few too many issues to be balanced and practical. So, while Hawlucha and Salazzle are options I'll use, Goodra and Tyranitar are a bit too impractical to properly execute without multiple shared issues among the rest of the team. Still, thanks for offering up some ideas, as Hawlucha and Salazzle are fine additions.
