  1. The Forty Fraylords

    (>^^)>The Forty Fraylords<(--<) Hello again, Smogon. It's been months since I posted a warstory, and I enjoyed writing it so much that I decided right after to do another one! But this one was going to be different than any other. My first warstory was one team versus one other team. My...
  2. The Jerk Store (Important note, first post)

    Note: I am temporarily completely unable to trade anything. My MiFi... ceased to work. Violently. So, until I go home on some weekends, I will be unable to conduct trades. Sorry for the inconvience. Also, never, ever buy a MiFi unless you are borderline-suicidal and want to get something to push...

  5. Medicham

    Note: I feel I should include this: These analyses are based 100% on my experiences with and against this Pokemon. The sets listed may not resemble your experience with them, but they are never deliberate lies. If you have a constructive experience to share, please do. Medicham #308 HP: 60...
  6. Blissey

    Blissey, Blissey. How can enough be said of you? I remember hearing, in early Gen IV, how Blissey had "generally reduced the effectiveness of the Special category of moves." In Double Battles, Blissey can't wall Pokemon the same way, because crafty trainers will have Pokemon ready to focus...

  8. Ludicolo

    Lotus Duck has the potential to be the most potent GBU rain-abuser there is in Doubles. It was made to abuse rain in almost every way, similar to its sunny cousin Shiftry, but even moreso. Its ability, moveset, and typing are all excellent and make up for not-superb overall stats. Ludicolo...
  9. Porygon 2

    Even before the existence of Eviolite people were starting to pass up Porygon-Z for its pre-evolution. Porygon 2 is one of the most well-boosted Eviolite users, like other Pokemon that were originally final stages. Access to Electric- and Ice-type moves gives it well-rounded coverage, and a...
  10. Gyarados

    From the very beginning I thought Gyarados should have been Water/Dragon, but I think Nintendo didn't want to have a weakness-less (At the time) Pokemon. It belongs to that selection of Pokemon like Rhyperior that have a great special movepool and terrible SpA. With a limited physical movepool...
  11. Infernape

    Infernape was a monstrous wallbreaker in Gen IV, when Skarm-Bliss, Suicune, Milotic, and others were common on teams everywhere. Blaziken was basically the poor man's Fire-Fighter, relegated to the tier below. Then Gen V came and the positions were absolutely swapped, even moreso because...
  12. Crobat

    Crobat entered Gen V with an already generous reputation for setting up weather. Unfortunately for Crobat, the forces of non-uber-exclusive Drizzle and Drought pushed it aside. However, Crobat found a new spot in stopping weather, specifically the prominent Rain. Crobat still has the...
  13. Manectric

    Manectric got a peek of the light from beneath the piles and piles of under-used Pokemon when Lightningrod became a useable ability in Doubles in Gen IV. The advent of priority Thunder Wave in the present generation has given further opportunity for Manectric to shine, and an above-average...
  14. Ursaring

    Many Normal-type Pokemon have a hard time finding a niche in the Singles metagame because it's so difficult to switch them in safely (short of them being absurdly bulky, like Blissey). Double Battles are different because a Pokemon can Protect and be almost perfectly safe for one turn while...
  15. Aron

    Probably the easiest battle-ready Pokemon to obtain, it's Aron! Formerly even its final evolution stage wasn't much to gawk at metagame-wise, but in Gen V Aron can give the unprepared player quite a surprise. Behold! Aron #304 HP: 50 Atk: 70 Def: 100 SpA: 40 SpD: 40 Spe: 30 Level-Up...
  16. Murkrow

    Way back when, to me at least, Murkrow was one of those lame non-evolvers that I figured Nintendo just inserted into the games to bolster their new type, Dark. Then, much later, it got an evolution that was pretty decent, able to frustrate a lot of ghosts/psychics anyhow. Now, in the wonderful...
  17. Hitmontop

    With a very unimpressive BST of 455, Hitmontop doesn't look at first to be amounting to much. Fortunately, he received a couple good priority moves like Mach Punch and Sucker Punch, as well as the mighty Close Combat. But the heart of Hitmontop's power lies in one of the best moves in Doubles...
  18. Cresselia

    One Pokemon that is often overlooked is the moon maiden Cresselia. She is among the bulkiest of ANY type of Pokemon, with stats obviously inclined towards walling. She's traditionally been forgotten in Singles because of her unreliable recovery move Moonlight, but Doubles sees her differently...
  19. [Doubles] --> Blue Magic <-- (65-0 in Free Mode)

    Note: For those looking for the specifics, the record is 43 wins and 22 disconnects. I only counted disconnects that occurred in battles where it was very obvious that I was about to win. Hi all, A while ago I made a rain team that didn't stand up as well as I thought it would. I had...
  20. The Hailstone Trinity

    Note: I feel I should qualify this by saying that this is a Double Battle warstory. Note: This is not a brand new warstory. I changed the title and planned to edit it a third warstory (hence the 'trinity'). It will be done in a few hours. The Hailstone Trinity I prepared a team in my spare...
