This topic is now open. Don't think we need to keep it locked between rounds or anything. Feel free to comment :)

Fish's Blissey looked interesting enough to me. (Except for rock slide) What was wrong with it exactly? (I'm not good at sarcasm if there is any)

If nobody minds explaining, what's with all the Barack Obama and winter love, even on teams with other weather-inducers(get it?)?


And zerowing dominates. He doesn't even need wings to soar. Just throwing that out.

Two main reasons. One is weather control -- canceling the weather your foe wants gives you an advantage. The other is blizzard spam -- tons of stuff in this metagame is either weak or neutral to blizzard.

Seems like running something as simple as FocusSashAlakazam and FocusSashGengar would be enough to topple a lot of these teams but, I don't know doubles very well... Anyways, nice job guys.

articuno's team is really really cool.

gratz at the qualified for nationals.

(and yeah, i don't see the point of using rock slide on blissey instead of softboiled o fire blast, i'm new in the vgc scenary [may be to flinch slow opponents with serene grace to let abomasnow attack?)

Rock Slide Serene Grace Blissey will allow for 60% flinch on both opponents, mainly effective under the use of TR, and with Dunsparce :p And based on the pokemon he is using, its very viable that he was TR based.

It's actually not as bad as I make it seem, although rock slide is a bit required for what it's doing. Look closely at the picture. Blissey has Serene Grace which means Rock Slide (when it hits) is a 60% chance of flinch on each opponent and after paralysis the chances of the opponent moving are really low and your partner can clean them up.

Unfortunately he had quite a bit go wrong during his match and he wasn't able to pull the win at the tournament! It is a hilarious team and exactly the type of stuff I love to see.

Oh, actually that is pretty cool! I was just thinking that Blissey is so slow, that rock slide wouldn't be able to flinch anyone because they already moved.
