Pokemon - Teams

Some quick notes...

1. The purpose of this page isn't to promote any teams, or anything like that. It's a record of which teams I've used in each game/generation so that I can avoid constantly using the same Pokemon.

2. As such, I'm not planning to list moves, etc. This may change, as I am considering listing the HM utility of various teams.

3. I have historically played Pokemon by trying to catch every Pokemon, play with every single one, and have it learn specific movesets. I want to stop doing this and return to playing more "naturally". I've started, with Yellow, keeping my starter on the team for the whole playthrough, and making a team of five that suits me. In the postgame, I drop one of those five and use the empty slot to level up other Pokemon in order to evolve and complete the Pokedex.

4. While it is my intention to keep the starter with me for the whole game, there are a couple of exceptions (Red and Blue, FireRed and LeafGreen, HeartGold and SoulSilver, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Black 2 and White 2) where this may not occur. They will be noted and explained if/when they come up.
