Actually, Levitate Doublade can check even Life Orb + Knock Off sets, though it cannot counter and loses to Choice Band Knock Off Mamoswine assuming Mamoswine isn't running a +Speed nature. If it's a Jolly Mamoswine, however, Mamoswine is screwed in a one-on-one vs. Doublade because Gyro Ball + Shadow Sneak 2HKOs guaranteed. Of course, this does cripple your Doublade.It is still a counter though. Before Mamoswine was banned, I used it a lot. Sure, it could kill a lot of things. But it also couldn't kill some Pokemon. I just can't seem to remember what. Also, bear in mind that all sets run Ice Shard/Crash(Or Spear)/Earthquake and another move. Sometimes its SR, sometimes its Knock Off, sometimes its Superpower or Stone Edge. Doublade counters all of its non-Knock Off sets and 2HKOs with Gyro Ball/Shadow Sneak.
Nah. That isn't my problem. I honestly don't care about why you're defending it. I just feel that offense teams can handle Mamoswine. Stall should be able to handle it too. I mean surely something on their team can use WoW? Or put Mamo to sleep. Or send out literally anything with a fighting type move. There are tons of checks to Mamoswine. What I'm saying is, if Mamosine poses a threat to only one type of play style, than that playstyle should just adapt to it. Now if Mamoswine was like Bisharp and could destroy pretty much anything, then sure, we could ban it. But from what I've seen, it isn't too overpowered. It doesn't have any recovery. It takes 12% from SR everytime it switches in. It's weak to fighting, fire and water all of which are very common types. It resists only poison and is immune to only electric. If it's banded, you need to be good with your predictions and with LO it dies even quicker. Anything faster than it that isn't weak to ice can do a lot of damage to it. Just because Mamoswine can take care of a bunch of A+ Pokemon doesn't mean it should be banned.
