I hate hydro pump.
I'm guessing Iron Head is the last move on Aegislash?

Nah, if it was me I'd have used a Magcargo because it's like a joke between us that Magcargo is "the best Talonflame counter" xD

I couldn't sleep, so I got up and decided to do a match on Showdown

It wasn't my best played match, but I think turn 22 will show you the kind of handicap I deal with when I battle competitively. I really should just start using hyper offense, less chances for opponents to do this kind of thing.

Apparently people don't like you using the standard item for Garchomp? Don't like Taunt either xD

In fairness that was a bad flinch for him to take, but yeah, LumChomp should be expected. You kinda have to go for the Wisp anyway in some cases, but it's by far the most common item on it.

Loving the look of your team btw, welcome to VGC! ;) SD Chomp is great fun but what move did you drop for it?

That flinch was long overdue, tbf, I'd had about 5 games previous and not got a single flinch xD But yeah, it was still pretty lucky to get it then!

And thanks, it was Protect I had to swap out but I've been really missing it so I'm thinking of dropping Dragon Claw instead? Not really sure if that's viable. Also thinking of dropping a few attack EVs to be able to survive Ludicolo's ice beam, as he's really annoying for my team =P - scratch that, uses too many EVs xD

Iiiii think that would be a bad plan ^^; Chomp's already got lowered damage output due to Rock Slide and EQ being weaker in Doubles, and even though SD counteracts that a little you don't want your highest-powered, only STAB move to be hitting your ally as well! Dragon Claw is its most reliable STAB move. If you drop anything other than Protect, Rock Slide is the weak option, but that depends on how well your team deals with Char Y and Talonflame.

Ah right, thanks, that makes sense ^^ Think I'll try protect > Rock Slide, but I know a lot of Talonflame/Charizard EV against Garchomps (and therefore Aerodactyls, as he has less attack) Rock Slide so I'll prolly end up just leaving it as it is to beat them and maybe adding Talonflame into my own team to deal with Ludicolo, would be nice to have something that can switch into will o wisp anyway tbh, Gardevoir can but it's a bit meh to have to bring Everytime the opponent has will-o-wisp xD
