    Gyarados Analysis. Choice Band, final paragraph:

    "Tyranitar and Scizor can therefore make a great partner to this set as they can both easily take hits from Cresselia, hit back with super effective STAB attacks or even Pursuit should Cresselia try to switch out"

    should read: "Tyranitar and Scizor can therefore make great partners..."

    Fixed. I added the extra EVs into Defense as they would just hinder the HP and not helpt he Speed outrun anything significant.

    Do you have access to do this yourself? I changed this, hope it sounds okay now.

    Okay. That is a little awkward, fixed.

    Not quite sure what's going on here. Empoleon analysis, lead set:

    There would seem to be a number missing- should it say 100 speed?

    I believe you are correct jc104. I've gone ahead and made your change.

    Also can I change this myself or is there only certain badgeholders that can? :P

    EDIT: Putting on my big boy shoes and doing it myself.

    If you have a badge, just go to SCMS and you can do it yourself.

    In the CAP Threat Descriptions article, under dragonite, it says
    This should be simply "someone", not "a someone".

    I'm not sure if this is something you want people to do, so please tell me if it's not, but I've found another error in the same article.

    "both of whom" in this sentence is misleading, implying that both pokémon can set up with both Bulk up and Dragon Dance. In my view it should be changed simply to "who".

    In Absol's writeup in the Strategy Pokedex, the majority of words that have an apostrophe ' and are followed by the letter s, seem to be double spaced like so, Absol' s or Milotic' s and aren' t.
    this happens in every set, and continues throughout the "other options" and so on, very minor but perhaps should be looked at.

    EDIT: jc104, it still shows these errors when i look at it.

    Unless someone already fixed it, this doesn't appear to be the case (for me anyway)

    the fact that im on a psp might have something to do with it, it also happens a few times in articunos analysis as well, in support "With the addition of roost to Articuno' s" and throughout other options, can someone check to see if its just me.

    EDIT: the errors for absol still appear when i look at it, so it may only be me.

    This example uses a different style apostrophe so it may show up differently. These should all be ' as standard. I'll change those.

    The Uxie analysis page (http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/uxie):

    If I'm not mistaken Brick Break, even if it hits Spiritomb, breaks screens. The Brick Break page (http://www.smogon.com/dp/moves/brick_break) certainly supports this:

    Regardless of whether that is right, there is a rather horrible grammatical error in there that needs to be fixed. It should say simply "Ghost-types" and not "a Ghost-types." This might be one of those areas where Shoddy behaves differently to in-game.

    When I search Light Ball, it redirects to Mist Ball. =/

    Also, why is it that when I type in Rotom-H (or any Rotom forme) and Soul Dew (and im sure theres a few more), it redirects to the Google Search rather than the actual analysis page?

    On the guide to baton passing (http://www.smogon.com/dp/articles/baton_pass_chains):

    The build gives Vaporeon 60 speed EVs, not 66.

    Gengar isn't even base 115 >_> It only needs 60 EVs when passed an Agility, so fixed. Thanks!

    Since this isn't true I've gone ahead and removed the entire sentence (this is really only a temporary change, since an entirely new analysis is being written up as we speak).

    If I understand correctly, badged users make the change on the SCMS, but this does not instantly update - it has to be first checked by the site staff.

    I think Quick Feet bypasses the speed drop from thunder wave. The consideration is, however, that most Quick Feet ursaring are already carrying Toxic Orb, meaning that using Toxic is redundant, but not dangerous. Paralysis is probably of benefit to them though. The same is true for using will-o-wisp on a guts version.
