    If someone is willing to do it, the secret base decorations should be split the off into a separate table, or better removed entirely. They don't remotely contribute to anything competitive, and the info can be found somewhere like here for anyone who wants it. The DP pages don't have things like Spheres and Traps for good reason, this is no different.

    Also, a vast majority of the descriptions seem to come directly from the in game description. The ones that Obi did are generally great, but it seems a ton was added sometime after that directly from game data... In almost all cases this is not anything like as helpful as the set of descriptions on the DP pages. For example none of the TM or HM pages even tell you what move they teach, the pages for vitamins don't mention EVs, the trade with item evolution items don't mention this effect, and balls don't mention catch rates.

    The best solution may be to copy all the DP pages over other than items that don't appear in ADV and the few that changed in the generation gap (like Sitrus Berry). The ADV key items would need to be written up properly, but pretty much all of them need a rewrite anyway (obi only did in battle competitive items, so key items are straight from game data or missing) and I am up for doing that part. If it's wanted, I can work up a list of items that have differences between the generations, but exist in both.

    Even if fixing the ADV Item pages is not a top priority right now, we may as well have it somewhat up to standard.

    Brilliant, big thanks to Colin and Great Sage for helping get these on site. When the SCMS entries for non hold items are set up I'll do my best to bring those up to standard too.
