One of my favorite aspects of competitive battling is trying to come up with teams and movesets that work well in the current metagame, and I imagine that most other competitive battlers love it for the same reason. That makes me wonder: why is competitive battling largely limited to Singles? The different battle types allow for completely different strategies and have the potential to be just as dynamic, if not more so than the Singles environment. It's even possible to have completely different tiers for other battle types since they change the play style so dramatically, Pokemon that dominate in Singles OU can be completely outclassed in other battle types. Yet for some reason they are largely unexplored and ignored by the community, and I honestly have no idea why that is. I can understand why Singles is popular, since it was the original battling style, but I don't get why the other battle types are almost never played competitively. There might be a really simple answer that I've been overlooking, or there might be many reasons that no one has really considered before. So I was hoping you all could help me figure it out by having a discussion as to why Doubles, Triples, and Rotational battles are so unpopular in the competitive battling community.
