Seriously, I don't understand this concept at all. Singles is obviously the standard and more popular way of battling; why must ALL tournaments be in Doubles format? I could understand maybe a few...but there are literally NO Singles tournaments. What if I dislike doubles!?

If you dislike doubles? Then tough noodles.

Or adapt.

It's kind of annoying, since my team isn't even built with doubles in mind. Plus I lost twice due to critical hits, I'm not even going to do it again .

Referring to the official tournaments? They've never given an official reason why they use Doubles. I would guess one of the reasons for going with 4v4 Doubles is 6v6 Singles takes too long to play to be feasible for a tournament.

Singles sucks and is much slower. The bring 6 choose 3 setup would make it much more based on choosing before the battle than the actual battle, while a 6v6 would take absolutely forever. Note the time limit in VGC is 25 min per battle.

Doubles is generally faster and there are a lot more viable strategies. Example, I managed to wall a rain team with Heatran once.

Because singles removes most of the strategy of the game. All you need is speed and power and a way to stop trick room. Doubles keeps all the overpowered pokes in check since most can't survive 2 attacks if they get double teamed. Plus a lot of support pokes are only useful in doubles/triples.

It's been this way for many years. You just noticed this now.
