    Hello Safari players!

    As you know, Pokémon Online's playerbase is small, and a lot of our activity comes through Safari, even for our other side-channels, such as Tours, Mafia, Trivia, and Hangman. Our cross-promotions allow these channels to see activity, and although they are not alive 24/7 as they were in the old days, due to our Safari main events, our server population is enduring enough to see activity once in a while. Because Safari is the most active channel, and many of you are willing to put in effort for anything with a safari reward that helps the server, the right thing to do is to help the other, less well-off side channels in need! That is why we will be starting off some programs to help improve the infrastructure of our other side-channels.

    Our first target is #Tournaments.

    If you are not aware, when you join a Tournament without a team in your profile to match the tier of the tour, you will be assigned a random autoteam. Our autoteams already offer a diverse array of options, but it is clear that they need improvement in both quality and quantity. We have arranged a list of tiers that are in need of your assistance, and we will be accepting your help as you submit new autoteams for them!

    Our review process is twofold. First, our Safari review team will do a preliminary review to evaluate the quality of the teams submitted. The rubric is as follows:

    Ease of Use (5/5) - Can someone who has never played this team before easily understand how to win with it?
    Originality (5/5) - Does this team show something featured in that the tier that is under-represented in other autoteams?
    Fun (5/5) - Is this team fun to use? (We know this is subjective but we don't want teams that may strike users as boring or degenerate to be in our autoteam pool.)
    Strength (5/5) - Is this team good? Even if the team is original, fun, and easy to use, if it can't win, there is no point in having it on the server.

    To clear the first round of submission, you will need a score of at least 15. If your score is close to 15, we will offer help as to how the team can be improved to reach a score of 15. Alternatively, we reserve the right to make editions to your submitted autoteam in order to help it clear the 15 mark, but this only be done in cases where a small change can be made. You will be notified of any such change.

    The second round of submission will be handled by the staff at #Tournaments.

    So, what about ~REWARDS~?

    If you submit a number of qualifying autoteams per round, you will receive the following rewards at the end of the round.

    5: 3 Nuggets, 1 Mega Stone.
    10: 5 Nuggets, 3 Mega Stones.
    15: 2 Big Nuggets, 5 Mega Stones.
    20: 3 Big Nuggets, 10 Mega Stones.

    Furthermore, if 100 qualifying autoteams are submitted in a single round, a special prize for all players will be unlocked. The prize for all players varies each round.

    How to submit:
    Leave a Pastebin link in a reply to this thread as a link to your team.

    You may submit as many links in the same post as you like. The submitted team must be in one of the tiers listed in the current round.

    Ease of Use 3/5. Straight-forward, sweep them before they sweep you strategy. Some weird mons though and the Jynx set looks tricky to know when to Rest.
    Originality 5/5. No autoteam uses Victreebel yet.
    Fun 4/5.
    Strength 2/5. Overall I'm concerned about Victreebel's effectiveness, and Jynx is weird too. There's no solid in for Golem/Rhydon.

    (14/20) I would suggest replacing one of Jynx/Victreebel with a more standard sweeper to help both ease of use and strength.

    Ease of Use 2/5.
    Originality 5/5. No autoteam uses Tentacruel yet.
    Fun 3/5. Looks a little too haxy. Fun category goes for both players.
    Strength 1/5 Hard to have a strong RBY team with only Chansey and Tauros representing the top tiers.

    Ease of Use 4/5.
    Originality 5/5. No autoteam uses Slowbro yet?
    Fun 5/5. Actually looks like a fun team to play
    Strength 5/5 5 premier sweepers and 1 bulky high tier sweeper is pretty strong.

    Strength 1/5.
    13/20 -- My concern with this team is it destroyed by common moves in this tier. Exeggutor is the only Psychic resist, and it doesn't even carry Stun Spore, meaning it has to explode to even cripple an opposing Zam. If that misses due to Zam switching out (or if they have another Psychic user like Egg or Starmie), you are not going to have any answer to it. You also have 3 ice weak and 0 resist, making you susceptible to Blizzard spamming Starmie or Jynx. This and the fact that the entire team is outsped by Starmie and Alakazam makes it very suspicious, and if I got this an autoteam and got swept by the most common mons I would feel pretty upset.

    14/20 -- This team is double electric, and it looks like the goal is to overwhelm the foe's Golem/Rhydon. Meanwhile, your best switch in to those mons is Egg, who does not last very long. I think Starmie is much preferred if you are running double elec specifically to make sure your Rhylem check outlasts their Rhylem. I don't know if Rhydon is necessary on this team either because I think Jolteon can satisfactorily switch in to Zapdos if it's healthy (correct me if I'm wrong). It might be better to pack more insurance to opposing Zams or Tauros in place of a redundant Zapdos check.

    14/20 -- It's a bit gimmicky (I'm not a fan of tbolt Tauros when you don't have a solid switch in for Rhylem) but the concept works alright in theory. The main weakness this team has is to Reflect Zam, which you have to hope you para with Body Slam or explode on. I might recommend Body Slam over Double-Edge on Tauros, which prevents Zam from being safe on anyone (since you can't switch anyone in to Zam).

    14/20 -- I actually like the team concept a lot but I can't justify adding Magearna food to autoteams. Other Faires as well seem to wall or sweep the team, and it lacks the recovery to win extended battles against even stuff like Ferrothorn and Toxapex.

    13/20 -- Starting from the lead, that Lax loses to a lot of other leads. Jolteon is your only fast mon, and it does not beat Alakzam or Tauros who can harass or sweep the rest of your team. Slowbro is overworked handling opposing Zams, Tauros', Rhylem, and possibly Starmie and Jynx. If you lose Slowbro, your entire team falls apart. I would start improving this team from the lead, and try to incorporate more counterplay to popular mons.

    14/20 -- Fire Blast on Tauros serves what purpose? Blizzard is universally better and it hits Exeggutor, which is the only thing I can imagine Fire Blast hitting that is not hit harder by Body Slam and EQ. The team overall looks alright. Light Screen doesn't make much sense to me on Zapdos, since the majority of Zapdos switch-ins are physical attackers, and the ones that are special attackers you would be better off Drill Pecking (Jynx) or Twaving (Jolteon) them on the switch (both: Zam).

    14/20 -- I would prefer a more standard TTar set for an autoteam. If the Diancie has a purpose, leave it as is, but I think it's suspicious and it does not really help you in any type matchups. I might prefer even scarf Diancie over specs Diancie because it would help give you insurance against Mach Puncing Breloom and other things that get around Terrakion.

    They are also pretty distinct from one another.

    This team is also pretty distinct. I think it really needs Body Slam on Snorlax though. I think Zapdos will give you a lot of trouble, and Lax needing to use recoil to damage it when it's your safest consistent Zapdos switch-in will make it difficult to deal with. Body Slam also supports your team very well, as it helps set up Nidoking to sweep.

    There are too many problems with this team. The Lax and Starmie are fine. The Dnite is less so. Outrage is terrible in this gen, and overall Dnite is too unreliable to use effectively. If you are going to use Dnite, it almost certainly wants Thunder in order to threaten Suicune and Skarmory. Dynamic Punch would be preferred over HP Fighting due to actually threatening Snorlax and Tyranitar, possibly breaking Miltank and Chansey as well. Outrage and Extreme Speed are not good in this generation. You will find more utility out of Body Slam or Fire Blast. The Tyranitar set is close to being alright, but Crunch is 1) special in this generation and 2) not very effective against physical walls in this generation. Thunder or Fire Blast is preferred as coverage to keep out Skarmory, Steelix, Suicune, Forretress. Alternatively, you could drop Curse for Pursuit to make this a support mon. The Umbreon set is a gimmick, which we don't really want on an autoteam. Gengar needs Explosion in order to be a threat in this tier. There is no reason to use Giga Drain (which has 60 bp and does much less than Thunderbolt to waters) on such a frail mon, and there are only two reasons to use Fire Punch: Forretress and Steelix. I would definitely replace Giga Drain and consider replacing Fire Punch if your team is able to handle the aforementioned two.

    It's not a bad team, but it's completely smashed by CB Aero and CB Mence, who have plenty of opportunities to switch in and kill something for free. DD Mence and DD Gyarados are also able to sweep cleanly with only a little prior damage on Suicune and Snorlax. Opposing DD TTars may be an issue as well. You can fix this by changing Suicune to a more standard defensive set and adding a Skarmory or other physical wall to compliment Celebi's weaknesses. Also, your Celebi has EVs for HP Fire, but no Hidden Power. HP Grass is normally preferred over Giga Drain anyway due to PP. Blaziken doesn't need Black Belt, even if it helps clear an OHKO on Blissey, because no Blissey in their right mind is switching into it anyway. Leftovers helps ensure that your stallbreaker isn't stalled into dying to Sandstorm damage.

    This is almost a good team. Make Machamp your lead (no Team Preview in Gen 4), and change Venusaur to Celebi and give it Stealth Rock and you're solid. I would also make Dnite either MixNite (replace Outrage/Fire Punch with Draco Meteor/Fire Blast) or DD Nite (replace Fire Punch with DD).

    This one has a few issues. Aromatherapy with Gliscor should be avoided if possible while teambuilding, especially for an autoteam. The Jirachi set is a little odd, as I'm not sure what threats it counters or how it attempts to sweep, so I'll need you to explain the theory behind it (I'm less knowledgeable about BW2 in general so there may be a reason). My instinct would be to give Jirachi a support set with SR, allowing Gliscor to drop Stealth Rock for Toxic, making it a powerful stallbreaker.

    It's a bit questionable with the item selection. Persim -> Lum on Groudon is a no-brainer to me. Literally anything over Micle Berry makes more sense for Forretress. Leftovers is perfectly fine to use. I'm overall not convinced it handles major threats like Kyogre and Ho-oh and SD Arceus sets (especially Arceus-Ghost), so I feel like Giratina would be a wise choice over defensive Arceus-Ghost.
