    Does Smogon have rules and clauses for doubles? Because if swift swim+drizzle clause exists there, it stops a MAJOR sweeper. I'm serious. It would actually work to use 252 spec atk/ 252 speed/ 4 hp on a doubles team for kingdra. It would destroy everything.

    ... they dont have smogon rules for doubles... they use VGC rules. you can use swift swim etc.

    To me, it doesn't make sense theoretically but what does that matter lol
    You are more experienced than me at this. I need to get some competitive double battling in so that I know what I'm talking about xD

    There are tutors here (I think) that can help you, feel free to request help from them. There really should be Double and Triple Battle Clan Wars...

    I can see you tried REALLY hard to not make that a one-liner. XD

    Anyway....

    New Topic: What is your favorite Fire-Type Pokemon to use in Double Battles?

    (Please be descriptive and explain your sets thoroughly if you wish to share them.)

    EDIT: Also, I think we should make some form of topic that should always be in effect. Any ideas? (Be descriptive.)

    there is going to be an academy that chinghcar is working on. it will be for people who want to learn about doubles.
    it will be on the third post when it goes up~! so make sure you sign up when it comes up! :3
    i think that a club war could be interesting... but how would we decide on making the battle type?

    I'm also thinking that we should try to think of some "events" for this Club.

    Like Contests, a Double-battling only POTW. (That would be awesome :P) etc.

    we are gonna have a competition! i can't really think of how to do a pokemon of the week... because there are so many sets to use! xD
    it would be hard to tackle all the viable moves and sets. but i could try if you like :3
    i wouldn't do EV's... that would literally kill me! >:P
    i think i am going against someone who is using a physical wall jolt eon xD my garchomp earthquake didn't KO.

    Also, if we're doing POTW, I have this idea where:

    1. People give sets for a particular pokemon (first 4 days of the week)
    2. Everyone votes for the best set (last three days)
    3. The best set goes to maybe like a gallery or somethig
    Do you guys think this would work for Club Double Trouble? I'm doing the same for FPBC. It would be easy to calculate and organize things.

    The Gallery would be on the 4th! Post in which I would have control of to edit once a POTW is finished.

    Here they are:

    Psypokes IV Calculator: http://www.psypokes.com/dex/iv.php
    Psypokes Stat Calculator: http://www.psypokes.com/dex/stats.php
    Psypokes Hidden Power Calculator: http://www.psypokes.com/dex/hp.php

    Serebii IV Calculator: http://www.serebii.net/games/iv-calcdp.shtml

    I'll put these on the 4th Post when the POTW event has fully opened.

    Any other questions anyone?

    All ideas, suggestions, inquires, for the Club Double Trouble POTW are to go to me via VM/PM. If it concerns, the entire Club and not just the POTW, feel free to ask here.

    Thank You!

    EDIT: Ok, ok, the Damage Calculator is Gen IV :P

    Try this one: (Look around it. It IS a damage Calculator. But, it is imported with options to switch between calculators.)

    I would certainly be willing to tutor people in doubles. I've been playing doubles ever since the 2009 VGC nationals, and my VGC 2009 team has even beaten an ubers team in doubles. And I would agree to potentially having a doubles clan war. Maybe your clan could war against Psychotic Revolution under VGC format when both of our clans have launched and have full war teams.

    As for the topic, Chandelure has to be my favorite, even though I also kinda hate the thing. It's great for setting up Trick Room and sweeping with its base 145 special attack. It can also shut down TR teams with Imprison, and it can pretty much kill most TR users with Shadow Ball.

    I love the idea of the POTW and I'm willing to help and share my (not so awesome xD) knowledge of Double Battles

    About the topic, favourite Fire type for doubles is Typhlosion. Once I get my hands on a Flash Fire one it'll be amazing :P

    I run a special sweeping set:

    Typhlosion@Choice Specs
    Timid (252 SpA/252 Spe/4 HP)
    Eruption
    Heat Wave
    Focus Blast
    Solarbeam

    This is to use on a sun team of course. The idea is just spam those hyper boosted Eruptions. Because sunlight and Choice Specs make those really really powerful and Typhlosion is fast enough to pull that off. Also, Specs boosted Solarbeam is a pain for Rain and Sand teams that have those annoying Water/Rock/Ground types. I use this together with Tailwind support to avoid nasty surprises from Garchomp, Terrakion and friends. Instead, one may run Choice Scarf, but then Eruption will fail some much needed OHKOes. Fire Gem is an option too because it lets you change moves, but then Eruption will only be powerful once and the second time won't be enough. My team is built in order to make this work, and it works great.

    Sorry for posting this a bit late, as school as been busy around the holidays now (if you can believe that) and I have been swamped with other things to do.

    I do not want to deal with this either. I thought a club discussion would be fun now and then when I am active with other VGC battlers, but these strict rules take the fun out of it. This is why I recommended the xat. It's not only for Clans you know?! I'm just gonna leave this club. It was fun, but there wasn't really any interaction besides the discussion. Goodbye.

    I actually have an idea.

    Every week for a month let's take March.

    See this is how we'll do it:

    1st Week of March: We decide on a Pokemon by a certain theme. Then we begin to vote for a Pokemon sent to me via PM.
    2nd Week of March: The POTW (Pokemon of the Week) has been chosen. Then we begin to collaborate the thread with movesets and descriptions for the first 4 days of the 2nd week. The last 3 days will be where we see the best sets, choose the No. 1 best set from them then, post it on the 4th Post as the POTW.

    The cycles starts over again in the 3rd and 4th Week of March.

    why show them to YOU? xD
    anyway update!!!!
    the one-liner posts have been cleared up with me... i now understand what they mean. a one liner is a post that doesn't have to literally be 2 lines or more. but the post has to have substantial meaning to you, and others. but a post like:
    "i really like ____" is not meaningful.
    if you would like to say something like that elaborate please. it will save the club from being banned. THANK YOU~

    Does this count as an announce Kent 'cause I'm going to post it now if it does...
    Also I could do the POTW as I think it would be good to students in the academy to try and come up with their own sets, it wouldn't be restricted to just them of course. Also if anyone wants to be attorney VM me.

    Maybe we could have a poll... like you put up 5 pokemons or so and the members vote to choose the POTW and then... yeah we could share some sets.
    I think it would be fair that way instead of each one say a different pokemons and then you'd choose a random one
