one more pet peeve of mine: make sure and/or is used correctly in the case of Pokemon x, Pokemon Y, and/or Pokemon Z.
for example, 'a spinner, such as excadrill, starmie, or blastoise', but 'blah blah etc ghost-types, such as ghost arceus, giratina, and idk misdreavus'
^ while we're on that topic, it's giratina, not giratina-a, right? at least that's what the pstats bot in grammar says -__-
also! STABs to refer to 'STAB moves' or 'STAB attack types', acceptable? like 'terrakion has two great STABs in rock and fighting (or stone edge and close combat)'. I've seen it used frequently, but it just occurred to me that it doesn't actually make sense logically, considering what STAB stands for.
K, executive decision: it's sub-par
It is indeed Speed tie, it's talking about the actual Speed stat/number tying, not their agility or quickness tying.
It's Giratina and Giratina-O, Giratina-A does not exist
This goes for Rotom, when talking about the normal forme Rotom, it's just Rotom. When talking about the collective formes together, it's Rotom-A.
STABs is fine, you can say STAB moves, but this doesn't need to be standardized, I'm personally not going to stop saying STABs.

For the and/or thing, or is used when listing possible things that fill one slot. And is used when it's merely listing examples.
And I prefer STAB moves over STABs too. Fyi according to bulbapedia
, STAB stands for same-type attack bonus with the hyphen... But no one spells it out anyway...
And, it's an RU and an NU. Coincidentally that applies to all other tiers except LC and VGC. It's spelt Neverused instead of Never Used and NeverUsed according to the friendly people on #grammar.
Also, can someone familiar with VGC confirm this?
I've never seen anyone using those abbreviation over double or triple. Doubles and triples looks better too :/ Problem is, is doubles and triples capitalized? So what is better? 2v2 or double(s)? This is mainly related to VGC and not really a big deal.
Anyway, is there such a term as Wallceus? Just like how there is Extreme Killer?
Try avoiding spelling out the tier whenever possible, just use OU/UU/etc. I'm not going to standardize this tbh.
Wallceus does exist
I'm not going to touch the VGC stuff, Eraddd or someone can chime in here.

You can list different Hidden Power types by using the serial comma; "Milotic can use Hidden Power Grass, Electric, and Psychic effectively." This is also something that doesn't need to be standardized.
