    This is the team I used to get up to the finals. It never failed me in any battle, although I had to change it once the round robin was to replay. The concept of the team is actually simple. Setup hail with Abomasnow, use Trick Room and then start sweeping with the power of mighty Blizzards. Hitmontop is just here because it's Hitmontop - if you run a doubles team and you don't use Hitmontop, you must have a pretty damn good reason.

    Then, here is the team I played in the second turn of the round robin. It is similar to the team above in that it abuses Trick Room and includes good ol' Technitop, but there are some notable differences:

    Don't ban hail, ban Kyurem. Without that hail wouldn't have been spammed nearly as much.

    Also, congrats zarator!

    Thanks for all the congratulations^^ and Starman, once people start actually using Hitmontop as much as it should, Hail will look much less powerful. I guess only players who actually knew doubles beforehand were aware of his awesomeness
