Do you know any good Pokémon for Double Battles in Rated Mode in Random Matchup
(Eg: Tyranitar, Hitmontop, Dragonite, Metagross) and good moves, items and Abilities for them (That help them and their allies). Thanks!

Here are some double battle stratergies that you can fit onto Pokemon of your choice.

-1st Pokemon uses Earthquake (Hits all)
-The Second is a Flying Type or has Levitate Ability

-One Pokemon Uses Discharge (Hits all)
-The Second is a Ground Type or has Volt Absorb (Heals from elec), or Motor Drive (Elec does no damage and raises Speed ) ability

-1st Pokemon Uses Lava Plume (Hits all)
-The Second has Flash Fire (Fire does no damage and raises its attack) ability.

-1st Pokemon uses Surf (Hits all)
-The second has the Water Absorb (Heals from Water) or Dry Skin (Heals from Water, Rain Dance acts like leftovers) ability.

-1st Pokemon uses Explosion (Hits all)
-The second uses Protect or Endure (Leaves user with 1 HP) Endure works especially well if hold item is a berry that increases stats when health is low or if the user also knows Flail or Reversal (Lower Health means Higher Attack).
