Assembling a powerful team for competitive Pokémon is no simple task. Not only do you have to carefully consider the ability, item, stats, nature, and moves of everyone on your team, but you then have to put the time in to breed/catch the Pokémon you need with all the right attributes. Still, if you can put something together that fits into the current meta, you should be able to do pretty well.

However, if you’re looking for something a bit more unorthodox, there are options for you too. Be they pure meme teams, or a genuine attempt to counter the Scarlet and Violet meta, these are pairings you might not consider that work exceptionally well in tandem. These are all pairings of two or more Pokemon, as the VGC format only allows double battles.
