    Expert Belt Keldeo needs updating since its author is taking a LoA and has disabled VMs / PMs and so cannot be contacted. If someone could take it over that would be really nice =]

    I can take it up!!! Keldeo is one of my favorite Pokémon and I would love to write a set for him, despite already being working on a good number of analysis, all which are already written.

    Venusaur is a somewhat important analysis to have done, and I just don't have the heart in me to finish it. If someone wants to take it over, just apply the updates recommended in my thread, request a new set of QC approvals (since yee approved it before I could finish the initial skeleton), and carry on. If my input is needed, I'll help, but I don't think I can do Venusaur justice.

    Sorry Pocket.

    This isn't to take over any analysis, but there is something that I would like to say (and I didn't found any better place to say that): Some analysis, like that of Heracross, still mention banned Pokémon like Tornadus-T and Genesect (on Heracross case, it only makes heavy mentions of Tornadus-T). I remember that there's an analysis that mention Genesect but I don't remember which; and this is a worse problem for OU analysis of UU, RU, and NU Pokémon. Could that be fixed?

    I need to say that is most certainly an issue with the Moltres analysis, where one of the major points that the analysis gives for its viability in OU is that it's a good wallbreaking partner for Torn-T. And since Torn-T is banned that ought to be fixed in some way.

    Gyarados is up for grabs since Asek feels that he can no longer devote time to it. If someone could take over it that would be fantastic =]

    Yo QC. I know you wanted me to get the Shiftry thread up on the 8th, but, no excuses, I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll only ask for the duration of today as an extension.

    EDIT: Guess I can't dedicate myself to analyses anymore. Sorry to disappoint.

    Bearing in mind that baton passers seem to be getting analyses, and that noone seems willing to write a baton pass guide (would still be a good idea), reserving Mr Mime.

    Does anyone want to take over Arcticblast's OU Donphan? It has already passed the QC stage, so it can be immediately written up and gp checked ;d

    Actually Pocket the QC team has talked for Donphan before quite a few days, and we decided that the only main set should be the physically defensive. So the whole Donphan skeleton certainly needs to be done from the start.

    Reserving Azumarill and Bisharp. I know that Bisharp doesn't have an analysis but i still want to give it a test and see whether it is viable or not.

    You may wanna give just the Swords Dance a test first before making a thread for Bisharp, though.

    I trust you know what you're doing with Azumarill though, since it's a fairly straightforward Pokemon, and it got a revamp not too long ago.

    Because there isn't much else to do to Seismitoad atm, I shouldn't have any problems taking on Omastar's revamp.

    Yeah AG don't worry, the SD will be the only set that gets into the analysis and i am going to test it before meaking the thread because i know that the QC team (me including) are leaning towards not giving it an analysis.

    I think Tropius deserves an analysis. Its annoying as trash and Harvest + SubSeed + Air Slash flinching all the time is super annoying to face


    http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/battle-ou12025622

    this is the first battle i used it in ^^^

    RESERVING if it deserves the analysis

    tell me wut u think

    willing to do Magneton as soon as my school-year ends (2 weeks from now). What changes to the old one should be particularly done? (Maybe Accelgor or Azumarill too)

    Reserving Porygon2

    On a somewhat similar note, why is Durant in need of an update? I did an update for it not even a year ago, after BW2 came out. Genesect didn't exist when it was written, Tornadus-I poses the same threat as the its Therian forme, and Deoxys-D was hardly mentioned.
