As some of you may know, this month's Colosseum team in NP is the n00biest team yet to appear in the GSC era. It has six Mewtwos, but just look at those sets. They include:

A Mewtwo that holds Quick Claw. This same Mewtwo uses Protect even though it gains no benefit from it.

A Mewtwo that uses both Swagger and Reflect (remember that Reflect cuts the enemy Attack to 25%).

A Mewtwo with both Sunny Day and Bubblebeam (which NP quotes as "lulling enemies into a false sense of security").

A Mewtwo that uses Future Sight and Hyper Beam.

A Mewtwo that is explained as being shiny (input picture of a Mewtwo with just 385 HP).

A Mewtwo with four attacking moves, one of which is Selfdestruct.

Only two recovery moves on the team.

No Safeguard anywhere.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

This team begs for a Missy or Curselax to sweep it.

Who's with me?

I think the shiny was sharked...and 385 HP really does suck...it might've been candied though. Oh and the explanations were 1337.

Here's something to consider.

What are the chances of a highly skilled player actually making an all Mewtwo team?

Therefore, if they want an all Mewtwo team, they need to pick it from their newbie pool.

heh heh... I saw a team a long time ago that had magikarp. The caption said something like: "I know magikarp is not one of the strongest pokemon in the game, but the thought of using all my splash pp and then defeating my enemy with struggle would be totally awesome!"

Nintendo Power should really give the kids that are more serious a chance to make the Colloseum...

some kid out there deserved to be recognized for his movesets, or new strategy...

and instead they choose 6 mewtwo's....

stupid Nintendo

LOL... that would trule make me recognised as the creator of the mighty All Weedle Team...

What's so bad with Future Sight on M2? I thought about having it on my M2... It's cool to finally be able to use all those pre-L70-moves...

:edit:
Where can you submit teams? And do NP take submissions from non-English/American people?
*thinking of submitting his Weedle team, with GSC modifications, like Leftovers on the Support Weedle*

Winning isn't everything...It's the taunting I care about. Sure, you may laugh at my Level 14 Magikarp (I didn't want to spoil him by wasting an empty slot on Tackle), but imagine how humiuliated you'd be if I used Splash 40 times and then BEAT YOU DOWN WITH A MAGIKARP USING STRUGGLE! Hey, it could work! And what a sweet victory it would be.

Oh, and it's not "newbies", it's "proles". Nothing wrong with being new to the game if you're not stuck in the working classes. Hey, if we're going to be elitist, may as well go the whole hog and refer to the idiots as a lower social rank... - CatGonk at SoaG

In that same book, Chansey is writen off as bad, Gyarados is shown as good, and some of the stats listed are impossible.

Also, it says the best Poison type is...

*uses the Koffing symbol in protest*

Though I should remind our later viewers that Mewtwo was the mascot for the Pokecenter this month. Hence, a 6-M2 team.

BTW, if the trainer next month is from Dartmouth NS, please keep the publicity down. I don't like crowds. *runs*

I just saw the whole team. Highlights include -

Two Mewtwos with T-wave.

Sunny Day/SolarBeam combo.

Swagger/Psych Up combo.

DT/Rest.

Decent all-around attack diversity. One M2 has Submission.

Obviously it's not the greatest team of earth, but people never seem to keep in mind that NP's goal isn't to show The Greatest Team On Earth. They want to teach kids about various moveset combos, and get them to think for themselves. Now, granted, 6 Mewtwos doesn't say much for type diversity, and that team has plenty of room for improvement, but that isn't the point. It's teaching the kids who read it about team-making one step at a time. And there are some decent combos there that should help people with the proper lines of thinking.

Besides, how boring would it be to only see teams that looks like this one every week?

And while I'm not sure about its usefulness in GS, I will say that Selfdestruct M2 was pretty good in RBY.

Wait a minute... I'll bet Nintendo is planning a new tournament!

They are telling all these n00bz that their teams are good, so that the Nintendo reps will kick their asses! After all, if they knew their team sucked, they'd only make it better. Am I right?

I wasn't the only one looking at this topic, you know, and it would be great if Nintendo actually posted half-way decent teams once in awhile.The n00biest, shittiest teams are what make Nintendo teams, and every once in awhile they post teams that are up there in skill and variety. I wouldn't hold my breath, though.
