Tried to post this earlier, but lost it. [Frown]

Anyway, here's my first planned RS team. I don't know what new b0rked items are in the game, so I left that part out. This is strictly for game use, in no particular order...

Metagame: 1v1, 202

Female Medicham (no nick yet)
Trait: Pure Power (Attack + - how much, I'd like to know)
Personality: Relaxed (- Speed, + Defense)
Stat Exp: 200 for Attacks, 100 for Defenses, rest in HP
Moves: Recover, Shadow Ball/Calm Mind/Bulk Up, Psychic, Hi Jump Kick

I'm still kinda torn on the second slot. The other three are obvious - STAB and recovery.

Female Ninetales (Annie)
Trait: Flash Fire (stats + when hit by Fire - again, details?)
Personality: Timid (Speed +, Attack -)
Stat Exp: 300 Speed, 200 Special Attack, rest in HP
Moves: Grudge, Fire Blast, Safeguard/Sunny Day, Will-O-Wisp

Say hello to the Disposbale Gengar of RS. Grudge to wipe out the PP of Water moves - which allows for Rhydon to go totally ape-shit on everything in sight. Will-O-Wisp for physical attackers - let's see how they like attack reduction. I'm pondering Sunny Day for extra FB damage and to help Cactide out - but status protection is good as well.

Female Lanturn (WaddleDee)
Trait: Volt Absorb (absorbs Electric attacks as HP)
Personality: Modest (Spe. Atk+, Attack-)
Stat Exp: 280 Special Attack, 120 HP, rest in Defense
Moves: Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Confuse Ray

Special sweeper Lanturn, hopefully picks up anything Rhydon can't eliminate. Gotta love that trait - don't think it'll see much RS action becuase of the all-around shafting of the Electric type, but it's still worth it. Will be replaced by a Gyarados for 2v2ing (Earthquake, Surf, Dragon Dance, Torment) because Lanturn taking Rhydon EQs is not a pretty sight.

Male Cacturne (Cactide)
Trait: Sand Fall (Speed + during sandstorm)
Personality: Bold (Defense +, Attack -)
Stat Exp: Attack gets nothing, divide equally among the rest
Moves: Spikes, Growth, Leech Seed, Faint Attack

Standalone guy I'm using as a Spiker/general annoyance. If his only move wasn't 60 power, I'd be happy... Completes the FGT/PSY/DRK triangle.

Male Ninjask (DrDan)
Trait: Speed Boost (+1 boost to speed EVERY ROUND)
Personality: Impish (Defense +, Special Attack -)
Stat Exp: Split between HP, Special Defense, and Defense
Moves: Protect, Baton Pass, Aerial Ace, Silver Wind/Swords Dance

Ideally, I can SWboost on Turn 1, Protect for two as the speed goes through the roof, and then pass everything off to Rhydon. [Smile] Not likely, but hey, it's nice to dream. Aerial Ace for consistent STAB damage. BP any speed and/or attack boosts to...

Male Rhydon (Donald)
Trait: Lightning Rod (all Electric moves hit Rhydon in 2v2)
Personality: Careful (Spe. Atk -, Spe. Def +)
Stat Exp: Split it between Attack and Special Defense
Moves: Earthquake, Rock Slide, Megahorn, Swords Dance/Horn Drill

ahaha, the Nindon combo is born. I think. Megahorn for Grassers and vulnerable Waters, STAB all around. If I don't BP in Swords, then Rhydon will have to go it alone... or I can pass it in, and if Rhydon hangs on by three HP or so, say "k, you almost got my sweeper - well, have some of THIS!!" and Horn Drill it while praying to every deity known to man.

There it is. Do with it what you will.

http://user.yagb.de/meowth346/index.php?menu=lists&data=lists/list.php&list=itemsRS - b0rked Item List.

Berries are all, like, different now.

Oh, and please be nice on those without stat calculators on hand, and post actual stats, not the effort values/stat experience. They're more meaningful figures.

Medicham
According to Meowth's trait list, Pure Power doubles "Attack Power" - whether this is Attack and Special Attack, or just Attack, is unclear.

I would lean more towards using Bulk Up with Medicham - Just at a hunch that R/S is placing abit more emphasis on attack than special attack. Which is probably wrong, but anyway.

Ninetales
According to Meowth's trait list, Flash Fire makes fire type attacks deal 50% more damage and you immune to fire type attacks..

Go for Sunny Day if that's the case, Fire Blast'll make some mean damage with all that boostage.

Lanturn
I don't think Electric types have been shafted. Okay, so maybe there's less of them, and they're not as well statted as the old Electrics, but, then again, not alot of the new Pokemon are as well statted as the old ones - they're all built for the new stats system - and should be reasonably balanced with it. I mean, seriously, if you wanted to look at what got shafted, then everything got shafted.

Cactide
Yay for utilities.

Ninjask
Silver Wind will be far more useful as an attack than Aerial Ace - drop Aerial Ace and go Swords Dance and Silver Wind.

Rhydon
Watch out guys, Rhydon's a badass now.

The problem is, I'm not too sure how the exp. for stats translates into statistical points.

Is there anything I can read to learn?

I disagree. Using 0-255 makes it easier to tell how they're distributed and how much of that maximum they are. Also, converting to the actual stat points at level 100 (0-63) is a simple divide-by-four-and-round-down.

I can see how it can be meaningful, but I still believe the final stats are more meaningful - at least, immediately to a person who is attempting to rate a team. Especially after some sense of the R/S stats can be developed - which is best achieved by posted teams listing their final stats.

Medicham - Pure Power (trait) boosts Atk by two stages when switched in. (It can be hazed, and if Skill Swaped, when the trait returns it isn't activated..) So I'd go with Shadow Ball.

Ninetales - I'm not clear on the effect. Meowth says it gives Fire attacks a 1.5x boost, but everybody else says it gives you HP instead of takes away when you're hit by Fire. Fires with physical moves are troubling, since (just for everybody that doesn't know) Fires can't be burnt by Fire moves.

Lanturn - Ooh, recovering trait. Has this guy changed at all from GSC?
Gyarados (2-vs-2 action) - Might want to watch that EQ. It won't hit Gyara, but it'll sure hurt 'Don.

Cacturne - His defenses so low, and attacking so high, and you only give him one attacking move? At least give him Giga Drain.
Drain + Growth + Leech Seed = recovery worth noting.

Ninjask - SW boost, SD boost, Protect, pass. Relies less on luck, more on wise time usage.He only needs to survive for two turns anyway, and you've got doubled (or even 2.5x) Atk; increased Def, Spl Def, and Spl Atk; and nearly max speed. Watch out for rollovers though.

Rhydon - Standard. (Already?!)

3x Water
3x Ground
3x Ice
3x Rock
2x Fighting
2x Grass

Except moves like EQ don't target the user in 2v2. Every time I've used it, it's targeted the partner, then the opposing Pokemon. Didn't say anything about hitting the EQer.

I better rephrase that... okay, you've got a Gyara set posted up there. It happens to have EQ. You state that he and Don will be a 2-vs-2 team. EQ hits all opponents. Therefore, Gyara's EQ will hurt Rhydon. A lot.
