Keep all general 3v3 metagame discussion to this thread. What Pokemon have been working for you lately? What Pokemon have you had trouble beating? How many Japanese players in a row have you lost to? To get things started, I've found Talonflame to be the biggest threat in the metagame to this point. It checks a ton of threats and Fire/Flying is relatively good coverage (though I find I don't use Flare Blitz all that often). Its predictability can be a blessing at times though if your opponent falls into the routine of just spamming Brave Bird (as I'm sure we've all done from time to time). Having something like Blaziken on your team almost makes your opponent feel obligated to bring Talonflame along and that can be a bit easy to take advantage of by bringing something that resists its STABs while being a threat itself. I've also found Rotom-W really hard to get around. With Wisp's higher accuracy this gen, W is pretty hard to switch in on decently and it can just be a real pain to kill. I've never been tempted to use it because I prefer to bring nothing but extreme offensive threats, but I definitely hate seeing it in team preview.
