In my case, it's the original five that kickstarted the trend of color-coded magical girl teams in the first place: The Inner Senshi from Sailor Moon.

I also liked how their character arcs progressed throughout Sailor Moon's first season. Usagi was this spoiled, irresponsible brat who hates the idea of taking several rounds not only for the world, but also for her teammates, as well. She'd rather live a normal life as a teenage girl than become the only thing standing between the Dark Kingdom and the full resurrection of its leader, Queen Metalia. So most of the time, her teammates -- Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako -- not only have to save her, but also kick her ass and get her to lead the other four senshi in saving Earth from Queen Metalia's return.

I can't think of many teams, but I guess my favorite is The Hero Club from Yuki Yuna is a Hero. Normal girls are who run The Hero Club to do good deeds for the citizens of their city are suddenly recruited to fight invaders hell bent on destroying the city.
I haven't seen the 2nd season though. http://www.crunchyroll.com/yuki-yuna-is-a-hero

Yuki Yuna is a good one. That's my favorite too.

As far as color-coded sentai mahou shojo teams... this particular group doesn't really count since they don't necessarily have magical powers per se, their transformations and battles rely on a combination of undergarment-mounted jetpacks, hologram-projecting drones, the ability to transmit their singing voices through hyperspace, and dedicated military air support - but the idol group Walkure from Macross Delta does at least pull off the appearance of a magical-girl team quite well.

I have to agree on this one too.

Magic Knight Rayearth

Got to love the whole summoned to another world to become magical girls setup. They weren't as frilly as other magical girls. Considering how many forests, jungles and deserts that had to quest through this was a really good thing.

They also had some surprisingly dark plot twists.


And they had mechs. You just have to love a magical girl show with mecha.
