It seems like I lose half of matches at Team Preview and Mega Mom is too strong.

Suck less. Build a better team. Mega Mom is strong, but not that strong.

I think you should be using Salamence over Garchomp for Intimidate cycling. That's one of the stronger tactics in doubles.

Also, I think Meowstic is a little misplaced on your team. It's great at facilitating certain thing, but I don't think it pairs well with much of team. Scrafty would probably be a better Fake-Out/Quick Guarder for being more Intimidates as well as having more offensive presence.

Also, Rotom-H > Rotom-W in doubles IMO. W has better typing but Hydro Pump is a bad move whereas Will-o-Wisp is almost great.

Anyways, this is how I would break down your team on team preview. You shouldn't complain about Kangaskhan if aren't doing everything you can to beat it. Mawile teams are usually very well built to have a good match against Kangaskhan.

I wasn't complaining. I'm not tc...anyway, I have meowstic there for the classic fakeout+darkvoid smeargle. Quick guard on talonflame and prankster safeguard from meowstic. Originally I had rotom-H, but I wanted a water mon, and specs hydro pump is very spammable. Garchomp is honestly just filler. He's there for roughskin mostly...anyway, rotom-w has will-o-wisp, I just find specs hydro pump tends to just kill things.

I'll take your suggestions into consideration. Thanks.
