How To Post A Good RMT

Post by Neon Nights on Sun May 31, 2015 4:16 pm

If you make an RMT, please follow these simple rules.

1# Don't post incomplete teams. Please have all pokemon on your team, with full EV's and moves.
2# Each Pokémon on your team should have a small paragraph describing these 3 things: 1) A reason why you chose that Pokémon, 2) the Pokémon's role on the team, and 3) A short description of its set. Don't forget to mention any usefulness your Pokémon has to your team. Here are examples of what to do, and what not to do:
Good:
Jirachi @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Serene Grace
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Iron Head
- Ice Punch
- U-turn
- Healing Wish

I decided to use Jirachi because I needed a Steel type and a Revenge Killer for my team. [1] Because it's my only Fairy resist, I need it to switch into stuff like Gardevoir. It also handles fast threats that my team would otherwise have issues with. [2] I needed Ice Punch because DD Dragonite is such a threat to my team. Healing Wish also works well with Landorus, and I needed the Scarf so Jirachi could revenge kill.
Bad:
Jirachi @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Serene Grace
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Iron Head
- Ice Punch
- U-turn
- Healing Wish

Jirachi is my favourite Pokemon.[1] It can sweep a lot of unprepared teams.[2] Iron Head for STAB, Ice Punch for coverage, U-turn for scouting, Healing Wish for support.[3]

We recommend at least three (3) lines of description for each Pokemon. Having three lines is not absolutely mandatory anymore, but it's a good guideline to gauge if you have written enough;
3# You can only post a new RMT every 2 weeks; You can only "bump" your team one time.
4# Use a readable format. No fancy fonts or colours, it confuses everyone. A nice way to layout your team is to use the import/export button. Copy and Paste it, in the post. Razz
5# Make sure the team is competitive, no troll teams, etc. and please. TEST THE TEAM OUT BEFORE YOU POST IT. This way, all errors are hammered out so reviews are quicker.

Here are the rules for any other poster:

1) Make your post have some kind of content

Your post should make the thread progress in some way. Compliments and similar belong in Visitor Messages. If you're not posting a full rate, try at least to ask a question about certain choices you don't understand, or how the team deals with a certain threat. "Where is my shoutout ;[" and "nice team" are not acceptable. CONTENTLESS POSTS WILL BE DELETED

2) Be knowledgeable before you rate

If you don't understand the tier of the team you're rating, don't bother. Any rate that shows a lack of knowledge in the tier will be deleted. Simply put: don't talk out of your ass.

3) Mini-modding

Telling someone else they're breaking a rule is fine, but not going around bossing other people. If the only thing you're gonna post is "add descriptions", then use VMs. Including it to a rate is fine though.

Remember that moderators can choose to lock a thread or delete a post. Happy posting!
