I hate you Venser. That team was reedonk.
Don't worry, my ass still gets handed to me by drizzle + swift swim, drought + chlorophyll, and pretty much anything that manages to set up through prankster Taunts and flinchhax. I don't have a single priority move on there, and only 1 electric attack, so Gyarados is dangerous too. Notably though, Sub + Protect Heatran is the best Pokemon I've ever used, especially with Genesect and Skymin to lure in Heat Waves.

Skymin gets Tailwind too bud. Might look into that for those weather mons. Zapdos is cool too for it, and can be placed in over Thundy-I.

Ok, I'm officially ending these challenges. Thank you to everyone who decided to participate throughout the time they were running :) Congrats to Nollan for winning the last one (contact me on IRC to claim your prize). If you're still looking for your Doubles fix, be on the lookout for other projects in the near future (such as Double Dash). Also, if you completed this challenge during the forum downtime and weren't able to post, please PM/VM me.
