It's happening! Doubles is here!
With the advent of Gen 6 and the rising usage and popularity of the Doubles metagame, we in Smogon have decided it's time this tier gets an official status.
While the tier itself is going to be official starting 12th October 2013, the day Gen 6 comes out worldwide, the Doubles team is undergoing an adaptation period where the Doubles metagame is adapting to the Contributions and Corrections process and making its very own forum grow so all new players can learn all about it and start participating in the Doubles community before the official date.
As with all Smogon official and unofficial metagames, you can play Doubles in Pokémon Showdown, our sim of choice that allows us to play our thrilling Doubles battles in a very active ladder. ~Joim
