As I said on irc, I'm mildly in favor of not referring to Pokemon as people.
"Zapdos who have Thunderbolt threaten Water-types"
"Zapdos that have Thunderbolt threaten Water-types"
the second seems nicer to me, so unless there is some cannon reason for referring to them as people lets switch. iirc quite a few people have a slight preference for depersonalising Pokemon. Do we know who introduced this standard and why?
As a general rule I think contractions are already avoided (other than STAB, lets not change them all to "same type attack bonus"), so why not make it official? We should be careful to word it in a way that allows for the odd cases where contractions work well, like using DD in set names and SR in damage calc tables.
