Doubles (BD League)

Post by The Pieman on Sun Mar 01, 2015 1:13 am

What is Doubles?

Introduced in Ruby/ Sapphire, Doubles have shaped up to be a very distinguished style of battling, with double the usual fun.
In Doubles, instead of sending 1 Pokémon to battle at a time, both players send out 2, effectively making 4 Pokémon being active at the same time.

It will be foolish to think that one can simply use a normal OU team and use it to play Doubles and rack up wins.
In fact, Doubles has its very own tiers with varied threats.
The traditional strategies such as switching, setting up entry hazards, checks/ counters, poison stalling, etc are of little to no use at Doubles as having 2 active Pokémon from each side not only significantly cuts down overall battle time, but focuses the game on spread moves, ally-helping moves, move scouting, protection, berries and so much more stuff that are rarely in Singles Battles.

If you want to learn about Doubles, Smogon has a very helpful section.
For beginners though, I recommend this article:

Introduction

Welcome to the Tag Team Doubles Gym, where each challenger has to pair up with another challenger to battle the Doubles Leaders.

Instead of having just one regular match, there will be 3 matches, in which the team with the most victories (2 out of 3) will be deemed the winner.
Even if the 2 out of 3 wins was obtained by one person in the 2-man team, both the team members will be considered to have defeated the Doubles Leader.
Like other Gyms, these 3 battles will be considered a set.

Challenge Procedures

Unlike the tournament, things are a bit different this time.
When initiating the challenge, each challenger needs to establish a team with another challenger, and must notify me of the team. Both the members of the team must do so, by either commenting on the group or PM'ing me.
This is to ensure that there is no confusion as to who pairs up with whom during the challenge.

There is also a specific way in which the Doubles Leaders has to be challenged.
For the 1st match, the challenger may choose to battle either Arifeen or Irtiza. Their choice.
For the 2nd match, the two players who did not battle in the 1st match shall battle.
For the 3rd match, both teams can decide who to send out for the battle. But like the tournament, I must be informed of the choice. Until both the teams have made the choice, the selections will be kept secret.

Example scenario:
Team AB vs. Doubles Leaders
If 1st match is: Challenger A vs. Arifeen
Then 2nd match HAS to be: Challenger B vs. Irtiza
The 3rd match, as described, will be made once the decisions have been made.

Keep in mind that like all other Gyms, the Doubles Gym too can be challenged once per 24 hours, no matter which Leader you faced.

PLEASE NOTE THAT challengers may change partners if they happen to lose a set, i.e. 2 battles out of 3.
But partner changing can NOT be done before a set has been finished.
A challenger may also pair up with someone who has already defeated the Doubles Leaders, so there should never be any shortage of potential teammates.
