Almost, but not quite. Also..Kinda forgot Assault Vest made Recover useless on Quagsire (suggested by Chill...also thinking Infestation might not be the best idea, since I need the passive Damage from SR). Might try Ice Beam or HP Electric for reasons that probably only make sense to me.

Throwing myself around triples with my doubles team.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/xybat ... -149821468
Against a TR team, just kept them for getting any ground.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/xybat ... -149781658
Server went down after so this was best one. Complete shutdown of a Terracott-ish strategy.

In all I'm not sure if I like triples too much, it's interesting to play, but too hectic for me to do more than a few at a time.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/xybat ... -150283974
Just a good Doubles match.

Ive done a bit of tweaking:

-Ive swapped out Sleep Talk on M.Aggron for Iron Head. Ive been finding only Running Dragon Tail a rather large negative, as it forces me to switch out on Fairy Types.

-Ive swapped out Quagsire for Shuckle. I kinda havent found Quagsire to work that well for me. Also Encore, may allow me an opportunity to get Blazkein in and set up Sub and Speed Boosts.

-Excadrill replaces Empoleon. Ive been finding the using Defog Hurts me more than helps me. Im hoping using Exca with Rapid Spin is more usefull.

-I decided to Bite the bullet.....Noivern has been swapped out for Greninja due to better coverage moves.

IMO, a sore loser. Could have least stayed to take the final hit.

I'm trying out a variation of your Ticklefish, Mason. So far, it seems to work pretty well. I built it from memory, though, so there are a few differences:

Alomomola @ Leftovers
Ability: Regenerator
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Waterfall
- Tickle
- Wish
- Protect

I'm using it as a part of a regenerator core with a specially defensive Amoonguss. I built it just this morning, so I'm still a little shaky on what it can handle, but it seems to work pretty well so far. I'm going to try out your set later, as Mirror Coat would be helpful in some places.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-153818064

The Latios is modest with a scarf, but it's easily pursuit killed, which isn't good, as it's my revenge killer. I'm thinking about switching it out for an adamant scarfed Garchomp, or perhaps a Talonflame, because of this, as well as because of the special bias this team has. This is also the first time that I've used a Shuckle, and it works better than I thought it would; I should probably run a Chesto Berry on it instead of Leftovers, though.

I kinda miss using that set... I would say try using ScarfChomp if you opt to not use mirror coat +252S.def, otherwise Thundrus will give you a lot of trouble.

Counters:
Tailwind...check
Dark Void...check
M-gar...check

Against another TR team, No Guard is useful for once.

So, this was my second competitive triple battle (and within the first twenty triple battles overall), the first ending not thirty seconds prior in defeat. This was more of a proof of concept kind of thing, rather than an actual attempt at a a team, namely that a Boomburst Mega Gardevoir is ...somewhat possible. Note that, I thought of this on the bus out of boredom, and the idea was to use Mimic Mega Gardevoir, Boombusrt Noivern, maybe Scolipede, and a Wide Guard user. Also note, that I didn't actually know the specific effect of Wide Guard until I started piecing this team together.

If the Nidoking had focused on the Doublade, rather than the taunt-bait Scolipede, I probably would have lost, but otherwise, the goal had been achieved!

All in all, probably not something that could be used without some serious work, luck, and experience, and probably not something that would work at a higher level, but finally seeing Gardevoir using Boomburst was fun!

Actually, I think if I had managed to get a Calm Mind off, or kept a sub on, I might have been able to take out the Nidoking as well

I decided to try using my Gen 5 Rain team in a Gen 6 Double battle. Worked out rather well if I do say so myself.

I may have to swtich out rapid Spin on Tentacruel though. I dont think Entry Hazards are a thing to worry about in Doubles are they?

Entry hazards are rare to basically non-existent. Sticky web maybe a bit more so.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -157615238
Adjusted/testing my team temporarily to play in 6th battle season. (Rotom, Gyarados, Amoonguss were banned.) If only I could get Manectite...

That's wonderfull news. I have two ideas in my head currently which are now viable. I can either put Sludge Bomb on Tentacruel and have sort of an offensive wall, or swap out Tentacruel for my Offensive Dragagle. Ill be testing both ideas in the up-coming days (or how my work schedule goes, weeks).

I must say I was rather impressed by that team. Though I am confused as to why they were banned? Is it Gen 6 pokemon only for the 6th battle season?

I think the sixth battle season has banned the most used pokemon from the first five, hasn't is? I've read the list, but I don't remember everything that was on it.

Edit:

Sorry, here's the list:

Charizard
Gengar
Kangaskhan
Gyarados
Tyranitar
Mawile
Salamence
Garchomp
Togekiss
Rotom
Cresselia
Amoonguss
Thundurus
Landorus
Greninja
Talonflame
Meowstic
Aegislash
Sylveon

I believe it's the top 10 from each of the first 4 and first half of the fifth season. I also realized Showdown has it's own server for season 6 so that makes playing a bit more fair. >.>


Vanillia double battle, dat hax attempts.
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -158333708

Smearowned
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -159332078

Very close battle, fully justifies Synthesis+Regen on Amoonguss
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -159773466

Oh hey Showdown now has a rematch feature. I can just see the kids shouting "REMATCH PLZ" the second I land a crit.

This is currently my Doubles Team (after tweaking) that I plan to breed. This is literally the first time using it with these changes, and it worked rather well IMO.

I am thinking about a Fast Physical sweeper for it though.

Also the stealth Rock set up made me chuckle a little. (Mainly cause of what was disccused in my last post.)

Soo... has anyone ever fought one of those annoying evasion teams...?

I may just have built one, just to try it out, and to see how many rage quits I can get, and because I had number of bad battles like them in the Battle Spot last week, and I have a bucket list of battle styles to try and to attempt to succeed in... and, well, I just felt like trolling.

So, in preparation to get my vengeance, I'm using Showdown as my testing grounds. Here is my most recent battle, under the alt ACTT:

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -163732476

Don't let Clefable's early exit fool you, she's actually the main sweeper, and a real troll, if she can get set up properly, which is usually pretty easy.

While it can actually be quite fun, but I'm glad that these moves are banned as a standard; they are evil, for either the user or the victim.

I think I can mark this off of my list of battle styles to try now, though.

Dicks...

Honestly Doublade's only niche with having No Guard is to break these teams. The other 99.9% of the time the ability is useless.

So, if you change your name mid battle, it counts as an automatic forfeit. I did not know that before.

Would it be a bad idea to have an End of XY Era Tournament? ORAS is going to introduce a lot of new things, just in megas alone, and this meta won't be the same as the one that comes out of ORAS.

Back to Doubles.

This is just a gimmicky, high risk, high reward team.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/smogo ... -188735899

Edit:

Here's another one:

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/smogo ... -188753270

As it turns out, as long as a Mold Breaker or Infiltrator doesn't use a sub, a Plusle or a Minun using Entrainment and Toxic can handle them almost as well as Eelektross can. Crobat, Seviper, and Excadrill are hard checks to them, though.

So this is V2 of my Mega Swampert Rain team. Works SOOOO much better than V1.

I didn't win this one, but it was REALLY close. A well fought match by both sides.

I've been testing random moves on Aromatisse along with TR/Protect/Moonblast and surprised myself with Swagger. Probably the only move that can stop Aegislash from setting up forever and works great in tandem with Amonguss's Foul Play without losing Synthesis.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -192003062

Someday I'll find a good Articuno set to run.

Testing Ice Fang on Gliscor. Thinking about replacing Gengar with something. TalonFlame has been brought up. but....im looking for something a little different.

You could try Tornadus-T, Works well with rain, resists grass and ground to pair with Swampert, and has Hurricane/Heat wave coverage and a fast Sky drop to stop an opposing poke for a turn.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/battl ... -192425897
Against TR, SwagPlay combo with Aroma/Amoonguss.

@ Mason- Yeah, but he's a Legend, and I personally don't enjoy using legends (unless it in game t wreak the E4 for easy Moolah and EXP.)

Currently testing Aegislash over Gengar:
http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/smogo ... -192813127

Feels like Aegi needs a little speed, but at the same time doesnt.
