    Life Orb set, 4th paragraph:

    Honchkrow is weak to Stealth Rock, and with Life Orb and Brave Bird factored in, the passive damage really hurts him his longevity.

    Delete the "him"

    Life Orb set, 1st paragraph, 1st sentence:

    Though by far not the most powerful wallbreaker in the tier, Murkrow's makes up for his mediocre Attack with powerful STAB moves in Brave Bird and Sucker Punch.

    Remove the 's on Murkrow

    On the Porygon2 page, it discusses walling Heatran and Gyarados. All "three" of them. Heatran and Gyarados are so deadly they count as 1.5 pokes? Or is this just an error from the Mence removal?

    On the Crobat analysis page, there is a mention of MixMence at the end of the Standard Bat set. Just deleting that mention from the end of the paragraph is necessary, since Mence got the banhammer.

    Hey guys,

    In the Gallade analysis, in the last sentence of the first paragraph under "Optional Changes":
    There should only be one "and".

    Third paragraph under Celebi's "Offensive CM" set:

    In the Counters section for Swampert "to" was used instead of "too"

    The Mew analysis page (http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/mew):

    First case should be "than", second case should be "Taunt" (active voice).

    Redundant word (should be deleted).

    Redundant punctuation (should be deleted).

    This sentence as a whole is rather confusing ... I'd suggest rewriting to "For example, Dragon Dance Rayquaza is an incredibly potent sweeper who is only checked by very bulky Lugia and Groudon after Choice Scarf users are dispatched. It also does extreme damage to its checks before it is taken out, to the point where they cannot do their job again."

    There are no non-luvdisc counters mentioned. What about Luvdisk? Unown?

    Less on the subject of jokes Magcargo and it's 4x water weakness and paper sp def make it rather poor in that regard.

    In the Mamoswine analysis, I suggest that this sentence
    be changed to
    This is because the original sentence is unclear on whether you want 244 Speed EVs or enough EVs to have 244 speed. Also, it makes no mention of where to place the extra EV's, but that's probably for another thread.

    Guys the Drum Pass set and the Uber Belly Pass set on Smeargle's analysis page are exactly the same set but with different commentary. Does that count as being redundant or is it just sensible to have it set out like this?

    EDIT: Thanks coolking49, nevermind then!

    Since Shaymin is now BL, Shaymin's part should be removed, or changed to Leafeon, who counters Steelix quite well.



    Also, since I'm a horrible person who cannot read rules, I'm undoing my edit with this edit and making another post.

    Salamence is Uber, so it should either be changed to Dragonite or removed.

    Ursaring's article is completely based on OU.

    In the OU Toxic Spikes moveset, the following statement - "She is also able to absorb an opposing team's Toxic Spikes on the switch-in, something that only two other Pokemon who are commonly seen in OU, Roserade and Tentacruel, are capable of." is not entirely true, seeing as Gengar is also part Poison type.
