So I've been thinking of making a Doubles team, and I think I came up with a good strategy for Lopunny and Furfrou.

[email protected] item (turns out mega stones can't be switched )
Nature: Jolly
Ability: Fur Coat
Cotton Guard
Zen Headbutt
Wild Charge

[email protected] Vest
Nature: Adamant
Ability: Klutz
Drain Punch
Dizzy Punch
Ice Punch

So here's what I'd do:

Furfrou uses Cotton Guard, and Loppuny uses Switcheroo to switch the Assault Vest with the item (thanks to Klutz, Lopunny can still use Switcheroo despite holding the Assault Vest). Then I can have Furfrou tank everything like a boss thanks to the boost in both of its defenses.

One last thing: if this could work, how many speed EVS would I have to give Lopunny in order for Furfrou to out speed for sure?

EDIT: Turns out mega stones cannot be switched, so I changed it up a little.

All this to get a Cotton Guard boost...? Set up is anyways rather redundant in doubles, so I don't think it's a good idea to center an idea around it.
It doesn't hurt to try. *shrug* I'm just wondering if this would work
Epic strategy.

Tried it on PS!, as I couldn't get it just from Bulbapedia.

This is what they showed me:

Although, it was illegal when I tried to make it learn. I just didn't pay attention.

TL;DR Lopunny can't learn Trick

Besides, it is a waste anyway, since Lopunny is still too frail. You're better off with the regular sets.

EDIT: Still doesn't work.

The check box to mega evolve Lopunny just isn't there.

Learns Switcheroo though
Switcheroo?ohhh I think that's what I meant! I got the two moves messed up. I'm sorry!
oh, wait no problem. i'll check it out too.
If a Mega stone doesn't work, try just a random item on the Furfrou
checked with lopunnite itself. Sorry. Good strategy, though.

It won't work

Mega stones can't be tricked. On the other hand, setting up is kinda redundant in doubles.

Hope this helps!
