I have this triples strategy and I want to know if it works.

The three pokemon I'm using are: Xatu, Mega Alakazam, and Furfrou in that order.

-Scarfed Xatu uses simple beam on Mega Alakazam.
-Mega Alakazam now has simple as his ability and then uses calm mind to get double SPA and SPD.
-Furfrou uses protect to stall
-Xatu is switched out for something else
-Mega Alakazam skill swaps with Furfrou to get Fur Coat.

My question is does the 2x buff from calm mind stay or revert back to 1x? I haven't tested it in a real battle, but it sounds fun for me.

Because alakazam won't get killed in one hit.

Well that's why I'm testing stuff out, I could use Kadabra with eviolite, I just want to know if the buff carries over.
