As the name implies, this is the nearest that LGPE will get to having a competitive Doubles format here on Smogon. This metagame is based off of the "Normal Rules" in-game, which notably does not use boosts from Candies. It incorporates the unique style of LGPE battles, the new Pokemon Melmetal (and Meltan), and Smogon standard clauses.
Mechanics: Pokemon are set to Level 50. Pokemon do not have EVs, Abilities, or Items. IVs and Nature still apply.
Clauses: Regular DOU Clauses.
Allowed Pokemon: Pokemon 1-149, 151, Meltan, and Melmetal are allowed. Mewtwo (#150) is banned.
Unbans: Snorlax is unbanned. Gengarite and Kangaskhanite do not exist and hence Mega Gengar and Mega Kangaskhan are unrestricted.
I've compiled a huge strategy guide full of tips and tricks to boost your LGPE DOU team's success.
Ha tricked you. This metagame is still really really new so there's lots to explore!
None yet! A ladder will be set up by The Immortal soon, and then everyone can go wild. :)
