Does anyone feel the VGC format is unbalanced?

Seriously, most of the time people bring ther Khans with them, I can't even counter them properly if they decided to safeguard+swagger themselves. Also, this guy I just fought who abused Critical Swift Swim Kingdra on my team made me realize that.

At least you haven't run into Dark Void Smeargle.

don't blame the game because your team is bad

Even good teams get decimated by Mega Kangaskhan.

I was once modded for illegal activity because I made a topic asking for advice on nicknaming my Pokemon.

I don't think it's unbalanced. Some Pokemon are better than others but that's true in probably all formats. Kangaskhan is one of the stronger Pokemon in the game but it's not unbeatable. My current team is entirely made up of the stronger Pokemon and I lose just fine, some of the time to players with rather unusual choices. If you looks at the recent tournament results some have pretty standard teams and others have more interesting teams. Although I don't think it got to the top 16, the team that helped knock out Cybertron had a Mega Aerodactyl and Cryogonal.

As someone who uses Kangaskhan I hate Mienshao and am thinking of adding a ghost type to my team to switch into High Jump Kick.

Good doubles teams don't. This isn't singles.

no they don't
if it gets decimated by Mega Khan, then it's not a good team by definition

That and Megakan is highly overrated in this format because it's EXTREMELY easy to shut down any physical attacker and any good player will have counters for it. I.E, pokemon with iron bar or rough skin with rocky helmet.

Mega Kang alone isn't a threat but if it gets +2 from safeguard swagger and +2 from PuP.....
