I like it, but lately...it seems everything they do is Doubles focused. It's not the most popular format, so why do they show it so much bias?

On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

Doubles are less affected by tiers and stat listings, too. This lets people use more of their favorites without having to worry.

This.

Though there are a few pokemon that seem to create a much bigger problem then they ought (talonflame is the only one that seems to cause a LOT of trouble, other things like garchomp are very manageable).

I've only fought the same style of team a few times, and they were all from japan (garchomp, rotom, tyranitor, togikess)

It's very varied, and I've only played a few games where I won and thought "there was literally nothing he could have done to prevent that", and the opposite, where I felt like I lost and couldn't do anything about it. Most games, upon reflection, you realize you could have made way better choices.

The variation makes it a healthier battle mode. Serious singles play is super stale. It also addresses a lot of balance issues in abusive scenarios that just couldn't be addressed in single scenarios.

I prefer rotation myself too but you're right though, things like florges is almost dedicated entirely to being a double format grass support.

Apparently, Shadow Tag Wobbuffet caused the change to doubles as the main battle style in tournaments.
