    Hello,

    So there are a huge number of individual Pokemon, moves, items, and combos that are up to discuss with VGC, but actually sitting down to create a thread about one can be a pretty monotonous task and might limit potential conversation.

    So, here we have this thread. Here, you can talk about anything VGC or Play! Pokemon related in a broader sense and without the need to create an individual discussion thread. Hope this proves useful.

    After some days of playtesting on Special Battles i came up with this list based on my personal opinion, my playtesting results) and the most important part, the Winter Regional Results which you can find on youtube)

    PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE RESPONDING :
    -
    This list is based on a double battle kalos only format so some pokemon that are good in singles are seeing almost no play in here, this also makes some pokemon like meowstic a lot better.
    -Mega Kangaskhan is not banned and it is by far the most popular mega in the game so because of this a lot of megas are not being played, including mega lucario and mega pinsir.
    -I'm not saying that this is a very accurate list, it is totally based on the Battle Spot Special Battles online metagame (Which is the official format) and NOT based on a simulator.
    -I do not believe that this list needs more clasifications but opinions are always welcome, also if i missed some pokemon please let me know.
    -ALSO I MADE THIS LIST AND IT IS NOT OFFICIAL OR 100% ACCURATE SO DO NOT FLAME.
