Doubles Strategies List (Doubles OU and VGC 2015)

Post by HyperTHD on Mon Dec 07, 2015 8:52 pm

The forums really do need some more doubles love XD

Anywho, feel free to post some interesting strategies regarding team compositions in VGC 2015 or Doubles OU. Note that they both play in the Doubles Format while most of you are familiar with OU and it's lower tiers which are Singles.

~ Simply note the tier and then go ahead and show the team. I'll try my best and see what I can do in terms of viability of the strategy in place.

~ If you guys need any explanation regarding VGC or Doubles OU, just PM me and I'll try to explain the best I can

So what do you feel is great right now in the doubles scene? I know VGC 2016 ruleset will be arriving shortly and the Doubles OU Winter Seasonal has just begun as well. Love to hear your thoughts on Doubles as a format and your opinions on both formats together. Let's talk strategy!

weather works great in doubles ou for me, I assume it is also good in VGC. Politoed and kingdra really works together. I don't know about doubles too much, is it sun is better than sand in general in doubles? I am thinking excadrill can't earthquake all the time.

In VGC, weather can definitely work. With CHALK being so popular, rain truly became the best way to counter them. Mega Swampert in particular was risen to counter these teams specifically.

In Doubles OU, Mega Diancie is really popular so sun is not that popular but can still work with Venusaur. Sand is more popular in VGC due to Japan Sand (A Japanese team strategy with Tyranitar and Excadrill/Landorus-I and Mega Salamence) and is still effective, but has to work around the fighting types.

Weather just needs to be used properly and account for all the threats. Excadrill can be used with Sand teams, but mixed Landorus-I is much better as it can handle Landorus-T which is a huge check to sand teams in VGC and Doubles OU. (VGC bans hidden abilities for legendaries as most weren't available so that's why you'll see Sand Force in VGC and Sheer Force, the better ability, in Doubles OU)

Mega Charizard-Y is the best sun user and has 159 SpA stat off of Stab, and boosted by the sun. It does huge damage.

Hydreigon is mostly used for Cresselia since it can 2HKO and it also provides coverage. It's a lot better than Latios in Doubles. Latios is more of a Singles mon, but it's much better in Doubles OU than VGC 2015 where Hydreigon is the king after Salamence
