This is a team I was fucking around with, which the gimmick should be pretty obvious and hilarious.

Could you possibly do an episode on Nuzlockes, and give your opinion on what fans will do to make the games more challenging?

I'll probably end up doing an episode on emergent gameplay in Pokémon at some point. There are so many different ways to play the Pokémon games (both TCG and video games) that change the way you look at them.

I can't think of a whole team idea, but a suicide lead Electrode with a Normal Gem boosted Explosion would pretty silly/great.

I ran something similar to that back in the beginning days of generation five competitive, except it was a bit more serious and was there for setting up rain for a swords dance qwilfish.

Additionally, listening to the episode right now, and seeing any pokemon in a flying battle using dig would be pretty funny, but Gamefreak might have something to prevent that, but then again they went out of their way to make splash do nothing under gravity.

Personally, megaevolutions might drive some casual players away from the games, I know some people at my league aren't happy about it. Some were going to stop getting the games entirely if megaevolutions were going to be permanent evolutions for the pokemon.

Really? That's a shame. I think the Mega Evolutions could be pretty fun. And from what I understand, Mega Evolutions only occur during battle and require an item, so if certain players don't like them they don't have to use them at all.

I think the Mega Evolutions might make the VGCs for 2014 a bit crazy and only being able to use one in a battle is quite a nice lock out for overpowering teams. My league members weren't even phased by the Mega Evolutions.
