Main reason: faster. Less switch-fest and stalling
Other reason: more balanced compared to singles. All move can be used in doubles, and more Pokemon get chances to do things.


wrong

If you're going to bill a game as an E-Sport it has to be exciting to watch. Doubles is faster and stall isn't a legitimate strategy unlike in singles. Also team synergy is even more interesting to watch like that Pachirisu/Gyarados combo in Worlds.

I wouldn't say MORE Pokemon, but certainly different ones.

I'm sure you meant that to sound smarter than it did, but it doesn't work at all. That Pachirisu was specifically built to work in Doubles and would have even been considered if the tournament ran Singles. It proved that the Doubles format is more inclusive to Pokes that can't shine in one-on-one battles.

Stall actually wouldn't be viable if it weren't for Smogon rules. Honestly if I could take Smogon clauses and use VGC rules for viable pokes (KB, no legends, etc) I'd play it.

no
vgc needs no extra rules (and all "smogon" clauses make it worse) and removing item clause would be the worst thing
