On pikachu, lets say his atk and sp atk is 90. Does the mechanics in this game then go by 90 x 2? Which makes it 180?

Cause i may consider bringing back sparky over thundurus T with his DW ability

pretty much yeah although it will be extremely frail so priority moves will eat him alive...

I'm pretty sure Light Ball doubles the actual stats instead of the base stat.

((45+252)nature)2=Pikachu's attack or special attack power

^ Well now, then I wonder why people use Thundurus over Pikachu light ball often then.

Eh, sparky maybe overrated, but he's still my favorite mousy. Thundurus is cool and all, but he's recommended in a more "Hardcore" type of team setup (In which I am still developing)

God, been developing teams these past 2 years and still got nothing...

Because Pikachu has nonexistent defenses? And is forced to hold a very specific item?
