Koki Sakurai's (@yasumatu0714) 16th Place Worlds 2015 Team!

Worlds has come and gone and left us numerous teams to analyse and speculate about. Of the more interesting teams at World's was @Yasumatu0714's double Mega team featuring the uncommon, Mega-Blastoise. The other Mega was Gardevoir. The rest of the team was made up of familiar faces in Heatran, Amoonguss, Thundurus and Landorus-T. Here is the link to the original post: http://d.hatena.ne.jp/yasumatu0714/20150919/1442667926
The full team was: 

As always, the weakness chart is below. 
The, like many this year, has a weakness to Ice thanks to the Genies and Amoonguss. No Rock or Ghost resists are highlighted however they are of no great concern.

The team quite clearly focuses on using Amoonguss to support both Megas as they fire off strong, special, spread moves in Water Spout and Hyper Voice. Mega-Blastoise itself is interesting in that it has seen little use this year despite being able to land super-effective moves against against LandoT, Heatran, Kanga, Thundo, and Amoonguss. Similar teams to this one, such as Yuuchi's World's Team, have seen other water types such as Azumarill run in the Blastoise slot. Standard M-Gardevoir we should all be used to seeing by now. Esports-Runner, the Japanese VGC site, ranked M-Gardevoir as the 2nd best Mega in the game, giving it 9.5/10, edged out only by MKanga herself. Shuca Heatran with Flash Cannon is used in this team to give it a better matchup against Sylveon and other fairies which would have been difficult to play otherwise. Mental Herb Amoonguss is interesting especially as Blastoise greatly benefits from a bit of chip damage onto Kanga to push Aura Sphere into OHKO range, however Mental Herb is a very viable item on Amoonguss as it guarentees it to get off at least 2 Rage Powders, enough for M-Blastoise to KO Thundurus. Super Defensive Thundurus with Rain Dance ensures M-Blastoise's Water Spouts will hit even harder and improves the matchup against ChariY. Taunt is obviously useful for Aegi and Shroom. Defence was heavily invested to ensure Thundurus could survive more attacks from Banded Landorus, the next Pokemon on team! Band-orusT with EXPLOSION. Explosion was used to quickly try and remove water and electric Pokemon such as Zapdos, Thundo, RotomW, Ludicolo, Azumarill and Milotic. This enabled M-Blastoise and Amoonguss to quickly gain an advantage. 

I think this is a really cool and I'm excited to see an underused Mega in the limelight. Yasumatu had an excellent run at World's going 5-2 losing in the 2nd Round to Eloy Hahn (DE) and in the final round to Moriyama (JP) after taking G1.  Yasumatu defeated Paul Chua, Choi Jeong Kyu (Korean Nats Champ?), Sejun Park, Barudoru, and Theron Ho.
