    Reviving this. As most of you have seen, there is a new TH Frontier sub forum. I've decided to go ahead with the assignments. Nasira will be in charge of a lower tier of her choice (RU or NU), while the OU segment will be comprised of Rick, Kira, Vol, and myself. UU will be done by Tox, while I have challenged Roxas to work hard at Dream World to see if he makes the cut. I will consider adding extra slots, mostly because I think there are other people that can contribute. However, at the moment, this is what I can foresee fairly well. Thank you for your time.

    EDIT: It would also be best if we diversify the style of play. Rick and Kira tend to enjoy offense, while Vol likes to use balance and I like stall. OU seems fairly diverse, and of course Dream World is all-out offense. I'm not sure about NU / RU so I'll ask Nasira about that, and UU is all balance, so I'll assume Tox knows what he's doing.

    Harsha, I got to mid-section page 5 before I had to go under the alt Vorpal Roxas. On Monday, I'm gonna do my best to finish up what you asked. Also: Excadrill>Garchomp is one of the best things i coulda done for this team.

    I can use nearly any type of OU team if the need arises. Also, are we having anyone occupy the Ubers slot?

    I'll probably use NU, but I can vary it between the two or whatever. Up to you lot 'cause I'm not really bothered.

    NU tends to be an unpredictable tier, 'cause it's got major offensive threats such as Exeggutor and Moltres, but there are also many underrated defensive Pokemon as well, such as Alomomola and Tangrowth. About RU I don't have as much experience, so can't really comment on the teams.

    As always, I'll be playing stall xD

    I enjoy Offense, but I can also play semi-stall if needed. Also, I can play Balanced as well.
    I think Skyleon deserves a spot in BW OU, imo.

    We could have 4 BW OU, 2 DW, 1 UU, 1 NU, and 1 Ubers.

    BW OU = Rick, me, vol, (Skyleon?)
    DW OU = Harsha, Roxas
    BW UU = Ivy
    BW NU = Nasira
    BW Ubers = Rick

    I'd rather not have multiple Dream World players considering that Dream World is essentially the same team over and over again. Roxas, that's not bad. I'll allow you to be the Brain, but only if I am allowed to work with you to help you out. We could add an Ubers position if anyone feels as though they would rather play Ubers. I'll gladly welcome Skyleon, though if we want to have 5 BW OU, 1 BW UU, 1 DW OU, and 1 BW NU, we should consider moving someone. Again, I'd rather not have multiple Dream World Brains considering that hax has its biggest hold on games that last 11-20 turns, like all Dream World matches. All teams are almost identical, and it seems like a waste. If we do end up with 5 in BW OU, I think beating 5 people in total seems like a good idea (as far as beating the Frontier is concerned). Thank you for reading through this, I'm sure we can make this successful!

    Why not introduce a Gen 4 OU Position? Would mix things up a little more

    Never mind, I remember Rick used to be #1 in DPP OU. He might be able to fill the slot if he wants to. In that case, I could take over his BW Ubers spot, so he wouldn't have a plethora of matches to do. Just some food for though.

    and a bottle of rum:

    It all depends on peoples preference or whatever..
    I'm guessing we're not even going to bother finding someone to fill the Little Cup spot? xD

    Harsha could potentially play Little Cup if he wants to. I mean, he did get pretty high on Smogon's ladder with a team, if I recall.

    NO Little Cup. Anyone can get to #1 on the Little Cup ladder if they know a thing about the metagame. It's too easy. If Kira wants, I'll let him do Ubers. If Rick wants, he could play DPP OU, but I don't think it's necessary to go back generations.

    Just ideas to mix it up a little, rather than have 5 OU battlers..

    Little Cup seems alien to me.

    Personally, I'd prefer if we kept it to one generation, because few still play DPP OU. I don't want to have to make a team just to accommodate those that still do. Majority rules.

    Its a-ok for you to help me in the dw frontier, Harsha. I dun mind. Doubles seems intresting too, but seems a bit strange to me.

    Nobody plays the lower tiers on Treehouse either. Doesn't mean it isn't worth trying ;D

    I think the frontier might get started during the summer when more people can get online (such as myself for instance).

    That's ironic, 'cause during the summer I'll be working or out most of the time. Lol.

    Just to let you guys know; I won't be at home for 2 weeks in July (dates to be determined). So, I wouldn't be able to battle during that time, so I think August, June or September would be a better time to host it!
