Last update: 19 Oct

The reason why we have edited through the other existing double battle guide is because it had a lot of errors and misinformation and could just use a whole tune-up. The reason why we left it there is because Dr. DoubleDuel is unaware of this one, and it would be rude to just completely replace his guide.

Now, for the Hall of Fame.

Although I am not sure how Dr.DoubleDuel judged teams for the HoF in the previous Double Battle Hall of Fame (DBHoF), for my format you will need to supply five things:

I'll enter a few...

{marowak} Adamant @ Thick Club (Phys. sweeper)
Ability: Lightningrod
Earthquake
Aerial Ace
Brick Break
Swords Dance

{gyarados} Modest @ Leftovers (spec. sweeper)
Ability: Intimidate
Surf
Blizzard
Fire Blast
Hidden Power: Dark


Basically, Marowak keeps electric attacks off Gyarados, and Earthquakes them back. Gyarados surprises the physical wall that just switched in.


{blaziken} Jolly @ Salac berry (Endureversaler)
Ability: Blaze
Endure
Reversal
Rock Slide
Overheat

{metagross} Adamant @ Lum Berry (phys. sweeper)
Ability: Clear Body
Meteor Mash
Earthquake
Agility
Explosion

Endureversaling might be harder in a Double battle, but Metagross can probably help. When Metagross uses Earthquake or Explosion, have Blaziken Endure. Then, sweep. Probably used best with Gengar to come out if Blaziken is KOed.

Ok, we are off to a good start.

Saanaito, your marowak/gyrados combo did excellent all I had to do was change sword dance to protect, it worked better that way. With them in my lead spot, I won 4/5 matches. When they weren't my starting duo, I won 3/5 matches that they were involved in.

The only problem with them is that it was either all (figuratively speaking) or nothing. The opponent either made a fatal mistake of not realizing marowak had lightening rod no matter how many times they used an electric attack, or they KO'd marowak first and then made quick work of gyrados. Either way, your pair qualifies and I'll notify tiger to give you some psybucks.

--------------------------------------

The metagross/blaziken duo failed. Rarely would they be able to take out more than one other pokemon. As tiger10x mentioned in the guide portion, reversalers are just too hard to do in DB's without a Follow Me gaurd.

---------------------------------------

Both of bushin's pairs failed to be any use. Salamence was better off with a CB and articuno rarely could pull off a sheer cold without my foe switching.

The espeon and porygon2 duo was just too special sweeping. If my opponents brought out pokemon that were resistent to special attacks, they lost big time.

Ok Im not sure how evs and dvs.and eal bellers and all that stuff works, but all i no is that this combo always works for me.

Gyarados

ice beam
surf
dragon rage
arial ace

Camerupt The berry that wakes you up automatically, chesto i think/salac, to get higer speed

Flamethrower
rest
earthquake
rock slide

Gyarados is resistant to cameruptsearthquake, and tat way they both have moves that cover alot of types, and with surf, rock slide, and eq, the two can give double damage to both opponents at the same time.

I know that combo can't work for you, JPB. Because gyaradoses can't learn aerial ace. Come back when you have a moveset that can actually be done.

Well either my LG is faulty (I'm looking at it right now and it says I can't teach gyarados aerial ace) and psypoke's pokedex is faulty or you've got a glitched game or you sharked your game. If the psypoke pokedex says gyarados can't, I say it can't.

If you want it changed, take a picture of your screen with the aerial ace TM selected and showing gyarados can learn it, show it to the Elite 4* and they'll change the site. Until then, I can't even rate it.

P.S. Also show it to smoogan because I can't even test it if NB doesn't allow it.

*scan the picture if you don't have a digital camera and if you don't have a scanner, go to your public library.

I'll give these guys a try this weekend. I have tests on Thursday and Friday that I need to study for.

I'm sorry I wasn't able to do the testing. I got piles of work and projects. I'll do them when I can.

Sorry for the wait and the double post, but neither team proved that effective. With the two tanks, it was always too easy to get a pokemon out that would kill them before they could do what they needed to do.

The dual intimidaters just had nothing special.

I'll give this a go.

{mew}@Leftovers
Transform
Recover
Psychic
Aerial Ace

{smeargle}salac berry
Recover
Surf
Lock On
Sheer Cold


Okay, this only works if Transform doesn't copy the stats of the opponent. If it does, then this is an awful moveset.

Make Mew Transform into Smeargle. Recover away any damage that the opponent dealt to you. Then, using Sheer Cold (Horn Drill doesn't hit Ghosts, Fissure doesn't hit Levitaters/ flying types) and Lock on, sweep away.

I put Surf in there for Pokemon such as Aggron and Steelix who might have sturdy, but they will usually have Rock Head for their Double Edge.

You might want to switch Surf for Aerial Ace so that you have something to hit Shedinja with.

Here's a new team I thought of. I'm bad at EV spreads, so hopefully you can think up of one.

{claydol} Quiet @ Lum Berry (Mixed Sweeper)
Skill Swap
Earthquake
Solar Beam
Mimic

{flareon} Jolly @ Leftovers (Helper)
Sunny Day
Flamethrower
Helping Hand
Double-Edge

First, Claydol uses Skill Swap, and Flareon uses Sunny Day. Then, Claydol uses Mimic on Flareon, who uses Flamethrower on Claydol. Then, you have a Claydol that has Sunny Day+Solar Beam and Flamethrower, which was boosted from Flareon's Ability Skill Swapped onto Claydol. Claydol can also use Earthquake without harming Flareon (Skill Swapp'ed Levitate) and Flareon can use Helping Hand to increase the damage done. I know this team is weak to Water, but as long as you have set up (Sunny Day, and Claydol's Solar Beam) most Water Pok

Typlosion Any Nature
Attacks

Flamethrower
Earthquake
Sunny day
Thunderpunch

Tropias Any Nature

Attacks

Solarbeam
Ariel Ace
Sunny Day
Any

Typlosion starts with Sunny day then Tropias doesn't charge for Solar Beam. Typhlosion Earthquakes all electric types so Tropias doesn't get shocked. Typhlosion also slauters the ice types with flamethrower and sunny day is still there so flamethrower is pumped up. Tropias has x2 speed so it can go first and with solarbeam it slaters all of Typlosion's weakness.

Gengar Any nature @Chesto Berry
Curse
Psychic
Rest
Shadow ball


Flygon Any nature @lefties
Sunny day
Solar beam
Flame thrower
EQ


Gengar starts with Curse and Flygon uses Sunny day. While Gengar uses rest, Flygon uses Sunny day. Gengar wakes up using the chesto and uses Psychic and Flygon uses solar beam on the same target. THat SHOULD finish off one oppent. Next turn they use shadow ball and Flame thrower. THe turn after that Gengar uses pschic and FLygon uses EQ as a finisher. This is wha I use and it ALWAYS works!!!!

{kingdra}@Lum Berry
Timid-EV:Hp:80 Sp.Att:252 Speed:178
Trait:Swift Swim
-Hidro Pump
-Ice Beam
-Dragon Breath
-Rain Dance

Modus operandi :
First you use rain dance with kingdra which will help you in all aspects
(Defense against fire,and more accuracy for jirachi's thunder;And more speed and Sp.Att on kingdra's hidro pump).
Then you can do a calm mind or Ice punch/Thunder if you enemy is a salamence/Gyarados...Wish for healing...


{shiftry} @Scope lens
Jolly-EV:Hp:110 Att:200 Speed:200
Trait:Chlorophyll
-Fake out

-Explosion

{gengar} @Lum Berry
Timid-EV:HP:10 Sp.Att:250 Speed:250
Trait:Levitate
-Psychic
-ThunderBolt
-Fire Punch
-Sunny Day

Modus Operandi:
First fake out on the poke which can kill you,Gengar use sunny day.
Next turn shiftry attack first(mostly) thanks to it's trait.
See if there's a good chance of this work,then use Explosion And gengar
take the rest with Boosted fire punch/Psychic or TB.

PS*:Watch out for ghosts,Protectors and Metagrosses with agility.

Hiatus Announcement


I hate to announce this. But, due to school work, I will be on a hiatus from testing the teams until around mid December at the latest. People may still post teams and I encourage them to do so. Just keep in mind it will take me a while to get to them.

The first to get done will be mun2.

Maybe this could work:

{clefable} @leftovers or focus band
252HP 129def 129spdef
-follow me
-softboiled
-thunderwave
-icebeam

{machamp} @Choice band
252HP 252atk
-focus punch
-rock slide
-earthquake
-return

A stabed focus punch with the add of CB, comming from a pokemon with 130 base atk stat is something not many pkmn will survive, specially when you are untouchable thanks to cleafable great HP and defences. This works much better if you have a second "follow me" pokemon in your team.

Altough this strategy is very predictable and if the foe uses a fighting move on cleafable her tanking abilities are very reduced.

{gyarados}@Choice Band/Leftovers

EQ
Dragon Dance/Hyper Beam
HP Flying
Return

{salamence}@Choice Band/Something else

EQ
Dragon Dance/Hydro Pump
Aerial Ace
Dragon Claw (if DP)/ or Return


The idea of this set is to lower the opponents attack by two (intimidate) and then, use EQ over and over without harming your allies. If you don't use the CHoice Band, power up with Dragon Dance, but personally, I would rather use the Choice Band for power.

The Hyper Beam for Gyarados is for when you're about to get knocked out; Salac gives you a boost, then you can get that Hyper Beam out pretty nippish, getting a good amount of damage on the opponents.

Hydro Pump for Salamence would be a great suprise if you don't go with CB. I mean, supposing they send out a Claydol, you suprise them with Hydr Pump. It will be a great shock to them!
