I'm fairly sure I won't be participating in this tournament. I have a crude Doubles team from VGC 2014, but this is VGC 2016: you're going to have to have Groudon, Kyogre, Xerneas, Yveltal, and/or Rayquaza already caught and trained. And I only have Yveltal, soooo ... yeah. ^^; I'll be sitting this one out.

This is actually Japan's qualifiers for Worlds iirc. Or one of them, anyway. That's another reason I'll sit this one out. Give a seat to as many Japanese kids as need one.

EDIT: Having bred ideal 5Vs or 6vs of them myself, I can now help with the following creatures (alphabetical order; listed by least-evolved form):
  • Bagon for Doubles (Intimidate when Salamence)
  • Bulbasaur @ Chlorophyll
  • Deino (Levitate when Hydreigon)
  • Charmander X @ Blaze w/ Dragon Dance, Ancient Power, Outrage, and Belly Drum
  • Charmander Y @ Blaze w/ Dragon Dance, Ancient Power, Outrage, and Belly Drum
  • Espurr @ Own Tempo (Competitive when Meowstic-F) w/ a couple egg moves iirc
  • Fletchling @ Gale Wings
  • Froakie @ Protean
  • Joltik (Compound Eyes) (can get you HP:Ice with odds of 1/32)
  • Lapras @ Shell Armor[?] w/ Freeze-Dry, Dragon Dance, and some other egg moves iirc
  • Larvitar @ Guts w/ Dragon Dance, Pursuit, Iron Head, and Stealth Rock
  • Litwick @ Infiltrator
  • Minccino @ Skill Link
  • Oshawott @ Torrent
  • Paras (Dry Skin)
  • Pichu @ Lightning Rod w/ Fake Out, Wish, Follow Me, and Nasty Plot
  • Ralts @ Trace
  • Rotom (Levitate)
  • Smoochum @ Dry Skin w/ one egg move iirc
  • Snorlax @ Thick Fat w/ Whirlwind, Curse, Pursuit, and Fissure
  • Squirtle @ Torrent
  • Starly @ Reckless w/ Double-Edge
  • Staryu (Natural Cure)
  • Swinub @ Thick Fat w/ Icicle Crash, Stealth Rock, Freeze-Dry, and a fourth egg move
  • Togepi @ Serene Grace w/ Wish, Nasty Plot, and Baton Pass
I'm not planning on doing much breeding in the near future, though, having just spent the past three weeks doing almost nothing but. ^^; @[email protected] But if there's something here that you really need, let me know. I may already have tons of spares sitting in my PC boxes. (I can tell you for certain that I do with Togepi and Larvitar!)
