You make it sound like switching is a horrible thing to do in vgc/doubles, when in actuality it's not. A lot of the matches in the finals/semi-finals had tons of switching to try and get the type advantage for the next turn or keep the mon safe from it could've been hit by.
Good read overall, had a few battles today that I did the same mistake you did with Tailwind and Suicune. Didn't necessarily cost me the match, but I did feel very dumb after those turns...
Also nice job taking advantage of the new vsplayer for warstories!
