    Xdevo's UU team is probably worth getting a mention in the archive as it is a unique stall team (not to mention that it's somewhat revolutionary as it proves the 'XY UU is all mindless HO' theory incorrect while being as effective as just about any other team). Although it lacks a scarfer, the defensive synergy and ability to spread passive damage with hazards, bulky attackers, and other means makes the team function well.

    All of that and the fact that there aren't too many proven XY UU teams being RMTd for the current metagame lead me to believing that it should be included as we have no gen 6 teams.

    In addition to this, Emvee's OU team could get added, but I haven't put too much thought into that and don't think I'm currently in a position to nominate it with a strong opinion.

    I'd agree with Mylo, Somalia, and Meowmix's opinions on Tdog's ScarfKrow team as well. It goes to show how underrated of a late game sweeper Scarf Honchkrow really is, and pairs it with some powerful Volt-turn as well as good bulk from the likes of Cofagrigus and Blastoise. I've been a huge fan of balanced teams, and I've got to say that this team is one of the best I've seen around during my time here.

    Agree on T-Dogs ScarfKrow team for the same reasons as stated above. It's decently creative as well, which is a huge bonus !

    I think it's much more important that high level players start posting more of their teams in here. Before that happens, there's not a lot to revive.
    I'd post teams of my own, but you know, my tier of expertise is RBY which has no real unique teams, so...

    But I think that the key to the revival of this forum in particular is to get more quality teams in here. So yeah!

    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/le-smogon-de-no-rate.28819/
    and http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/ghost-stories.28400/

    The former is an OU team with many successes for both its user and team stealers, the RMT is fairly well presented in itself with all the appropriate detail. A pretty good example of XY OU.
    Second one is an effective LC team, it's also really gay, but the RMT is well made and it is a good team, I can vouch for this one better than the other two
    The last one is a consistent and effective team in Ubers, it's a simple team structure and it plays well against a wide range of Ubers threats. Also has a nicely presented RMT, can't ask for a lot more.

    (Hell I don't even know if we're doing this anymore, first XY teams hype)

    I approve of reviving this:
    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/sticky-web.28930/
    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/shark-attack.28818/
    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/until-the-end.29172/
    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/paranormal-activity-peaked-1.27688/
    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/the-rite-of-spring.29203/
    http://pokemon-online.eu/threads/1.28830/

    Fixed's team is the best example of what Sticky Web should look like in Ubers. The next one is my RMT and nominating it might feel weird but it's the only LU team out there and it still works decently so ya there you go. The RMT of the next one was filled with some shit but the team itself is the best representation of what late XY OU looks like. The next 2 are both p good Inverted Battle teams and are great to get involved into Inverted. The last one is the only NU team that still works in this meta and it works p well so ya.

    I moved them all except for the NU team which has Druddigon which moved up.

    If anyone else nominates teams I'll add them also if they are good.

    EDIT: Yeah didn't realise Untill the end was one of them. Removed it
