    So, a lot of users thought that Double Battles are a ton of fun, and so one day Smogon Doubles was born. It's a really fast, intense, high paced metagame which has so much strategy and potential innovation it's frankly insane.

    I am here today to share some of that magic with you with my first ever warstory. One of my better fights, against a fine gent known as Level 51. We've got for you today Sand vs who know what the fuck! You'll have to read on to see!

    Turn 0

    Battle between NyttyN and Level 51 started!

    Yes, turn 0 is so important that it deserves its own description. Who you lead with is obscenely important in Doubles, due to the importance of key turn 1 moves like Fake Out (which is infinitely more important in Doubles) and Trick Room. Here, you see a whole lot of initmidate action - always amusing when this happens. Try to set up a game plan, but don't worry if it isn't working out - you're playing speed chess here afterall.

    Turn 1 is usually dictated by at least one pokemon from each side using Fake Out with the other flinching. Sometimes people attempt to use faster Fake Outs to Fake Out the Opponent's Fake Out so their supporter can get up a field hazard, other times they don't bother and go for Faking Out the opponen't supporter, and then there's shenangins that happen when there's no Fake Out...

    Basically you can call turn 1 turn Fake Out and Field effects.

    Looking at his team, I'm guessing some sort of stall at this point, so I decide to call back Volcarona to avoid it dying early to a Rock Slide. I was hoping to get some aggressive pressure in early on, but this is pretty much a no win scenario for Volcarona, since both pokemon counter it. Might be able to bring it back in later to kill Bronzong. I fake out Landorus-T to keep potential Stealth Rocks off my field for just a bit longer, and throw in Tyrantiar to get up the sand, as it's key to a potential Excadrill sweep, which I see as a real possibility.

    I'm a bit confused as to why he used Aqua Jet though. Well, it did a pittance, so I guess I can't complain. Landorus-T can't do jack this turn though, on account of being intimidated. So, welp, time to call out Hitmontop. And protect on Tyranitar, I don't want him taking any damage he doesn't have to.

    Nyt Notes: Turns 1 and 2 are usually used for scouting and switching around into a more favorable position, as Protect can often dampen the blow from any shit your opponent might throw out these turns. Consider it like scouting in singles, only you've got twice as much to think about.

    A Hitmontop at -2 attack is pretty much worthless, so I swaped in Latios to try and put a dent in Landorus-T while Tyranitar protects. He swaps in Bronzong to avoid EQ damage, and basically dick all happens this turn. Still no idea what he's up to though. Still in the scouting part of the game. Gotta play it safe, not reveal too much, see what he's up to...

    Might as well try and kill his Landorus-T. Might as well, it's the biggest obstacle to a Excadrill sweep and Volcarona isn't a huge fan either. Really, with Two rock weak, two rock neutral, and only one resist on his team, I see excadrill comfortably sweeping with a mixture of Rock Slide and EQ once Bronzong and Landorus-T are down.

    Welp, dick. He completely sees through it and sends in Heatran, who tanks it like a champ and blows my Dragon Gem. Oh, and Trick Room is up. That's always nice (/sarcasm). I swapped out Tyranitar for Cresselia...idunno why. Perhaps I thought it'd be best to avoid EQs?

    Speaking of Cresselia, she's a great supporter in Doubles, use her!

    Well time to start holding out. Trick Room is nasty to face in doubles pretty much always. Since I lack any real way to handle it,

    Nyt Note: If you're having troubles with Trick Room, you can always dedicate two of your Cresselia's (or other applicable supporter) spots to Imprison and Trick Room, which will prevent them from ever using it until Cresselia is dead. Don't rely on Taunt to stop it, because Taunt often gets beaten by Mental Herb. Fake Out can also do the trick to keep it pinned until you can killmurder it, just watch out for faster Fake Outs attempting to block your Fake Out. If all else fails, just try and kill the setter with a REALLY powerful move.

    Did I mention Fake Out was a really important move in Doubles?

    At this point I start swearing, because gdi trick room. Well, nothing to do but stall it out. At this point he fully plays his hand, revealing a pretty nifty Skill Swap. Looks like his team's based around slow, bulky Skill Swaps. A cool strategy, but, well, he could only hold out for so long with that. Thankfully, his Heatran isn't really packing the heat.


    ...I have just been informed that I am legally no longer allowed to make puns under penalty of KO.

    Well, let's send out Hitmontop to try and kill one of these steel types, eh? Not that he'll be much good against the rest of his team.

    Nyt Note: Well, scouting's over. I pretty much know he's a Trick Room team now, and he knows that I'm a standard Sand team with no real surprises. I still have Setup Volcarona up my sleeve, as well as one other surprise, but well the former never really gets a chance to be used because...well, just see next turn.

    Oh crap, Rocks. Volcarona is now pretty much completely useless as a combination of Stealth Rock and Trick Room means that not only is it coming in at 50%, it's going to go last while Trick Room is up. Guess I'll have to use it as sac bait. Nothing else to comment on, really. Just trying to outlast Trick Room right now and taking a beating as a result. Might as well get in some free damage with Fake Out. Can't recall what I was going to do with Cress, probably another icy wind. Didn't realy wind up mattering, because...

    Nyt Note; Some people will attempt to tell you Stealth Rock is bad in Doubles: It is not. It is simply situational. It won't work every game, but in a lot of games it can do some serious work. Try and fit it on your team if you can - it's by no mean as mandatory as it is in Singles, but it's always nice to have.

    Oh, and don't even bother trying to Rapid Spin. You'll never get a chance to, and there's always better things to do with your time.

    I have no idea what possessed me to attack Bronzong over Heatran. Going after his TR, perhaps? Regardless, I'm in a really tight spot here now due to a massive screw up on my part, and will have to suffer through another trick room as well as lose two pokemon. I'm not out of this yet though, not by half. Might as well try and kill Heatran now, since I was a idiot and didn't do that last turn. Close Combat gogogo!

    Time to suffer through this punishment. Go for some scratch damage, get out-predicted, and lose two mons. Ouch. Remember kids - Protect is usually on every single pokemon in Smogon Doubles unless proven otherwise! It's just that good of a move here.

    You know what this means, right?

    [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm just going to have to play it safe, using Protect and shit. Low Kick might get a kill here though because Ttar's so slow (and thus fast in Trick Room), so let's try and nail that Heatran!

    And on top of everything else I'm getting critically hit. Yeah yeah, rub it in all you want game. You'll get your just deserts soon. At least I didn't get burned. Oh and look it's a Qwilfish. Probably about to lose another mon here. It's all good though, all a part of the plan...All I need to do is kill that Bronzong, hehehe. Unfortunately, I'm not really in position to do that right now, so I might as well go for a protect on Tyranitar and try to heat wave Bronzong. No sense in dying to a failed protect when I could just try and get a kill

    Okay, now I'm really curious as to that Qwilfish's set. Does it just not have Waterfall or something? That Earthquake was also out of the blue. Well, whatever, Volcarona goes down, and Tyranitar holds on for dear life. That's it, my team. Just a little more. You all just have to hold out. I'm sure Level 51s ringing the victory bells by this point, but it's never too late. We might look cornered, but we aren't! Where there's life, there's hope! We will prevail!

    It's looking like there's not much I can do here, so I might as well try and protect with TTar so he doesn't die. I can at least killmruder Qwilfish with Psyshock so there's that.

    Nyt Note: By turn 10, the battle is usually decided, if not already over. This battle just happened to be unusually long. Yeah, Doubles is a pretty fast metagame!

    Props: Me, for never giving up hope
    For pulling a win straight of my ass
    Level 51, for consistently great plays
    Slops: Me, for derping like a madman.
    Volcarona ,for being worthless.
    Game freak, for inventing critical hits and flinches.

    Lessons to be taken from this: Always have an ace up your sleeve, never consider your opponent to be down and out, don't close combat Bronzong.
