    I did not make your tiering changes, Insomniac., because the analysis writers will update changed tiers within analyses as they are being rewritten to reflect today's metagames.

    Made your changes, Banedon.

    Starkiller2 has had his changes added on-site.

    I've also added cookling's first post's corrections to the site.

    Added all of the changes Rayquaza2233 pointed out.

    Handd2005: I hope jc104's post explained why your change was not added on-site well enough.

    Insingularity: I made both of your changes, including the removal of Salamence's name from the Yache Berry page because analysis writers will not update those pages.

    Thank you very much, everyone! =]

    Dragonite's page overall needs to be updated with Salamence's move into Uber as he is frequently compared to Salamence's performance in OU.

    The areas that now have unnecessary references to Salamence are Overview, MixNite, first sentence of Dragon Dance, Choice Band, Cleric Dancer, second paragraph of Team Options, first and second paragraph of Other Options, and first sentence of Counters.

    Corsola's analysis mentions Roserade, who can no longer be used in UU. The rest of the analysis seems to be written for the UU metagame, so maybe it was written before Roserade moved up to OU.

    Here it is: http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/corsola

    Micle Berry has a sentence in the second paragraph that goes

    i think this should be changed to, "In today's metagame, however, Micle Berry is rarely -- if ever -- seen, since few Pokemon carry moves with extremely low accuracy."

    @above: The comma before since is unnecessary.

    Like Umbreon Dan was saying two posts above about Dragonite's analysis, it can be assumed that this analysis has not been updated (probably because it's not in a Smogon-recognized metagame) and will not be updated until it sees use in a recognized tier and undergoes a full rewrite.

    Basically, analysis content cannot be considered a "Small change", and is therefore rewritten by analysis writers.
    Fixed both; thanks guys!

    Under the "Swords Dance" set for Scizor, there is a bulkier EV spread mentioned with 188 HP / 252 Atk / 60 Spe. This only adds up to 500, leaving 8 effective EV's off the board. I'd assume they'd go under HP, but I'll leave that to someone else.

    These errors are located underneath section 6, "Tiers", underneath the entry "NU".

    I believe that there are two errors. The first one occurs in "NeverUsed = lowest tier in the system". However, I do not agree with the statement implied that "NeverUsed = denoted Pokemon that are extremely weak". Based upon the first sentence, NeverUsed is a tier, so it cannot be "denoted Pokemon". I believe that "denoted" should be "denotes", as the tier denotes Pokemon. The second error, which is more disputable, involves the second sentence. The latter part of the sentence, "there not being enough Pokemon", does not explicitly state not having enough Pokemon where exactly. To remove ambiguity while improving clarity, I would suggest the latter half be reworded to "due to those generations not having enough Pokemon".

    Bleh, I should have noticed this earlier when I posted just a few minutes ago, but as declared by the OP, I can't edit my previous post, so I'll just have to double-post.

    Introduction_to_Competitive_Pokemon
    This error occurs underneath section 6, "Tiers", underneath the entry "Limbo".

    The word "yet" is an adverb. As per convention of modern English, one should attempt to put adverbs as close to verbs as possible. While the sentence may seem correct, as "yet" is close to "are put", "yet" is not used to describe "put", but is used to describe "have". Thus, I believe the proper sentence should be "Limbo serves as a place where Pokémon that do not yet have decided tier are put."

    Also, I realized that in my previous post, I forgot to add the accent above the e in Pokémon. Thank you.

    In Honchkrow's analysis, in the "Overview" section, the second to last sentence reads, "due to the mind games that Sucker Punch cause." It should be, "due to the mind games that Sucker Punch causes."

    In Grumpig's analysis, in the "Calm Mind Sweeper" set, Honchkrow is mentioned as something one might want to watch out for. Honchkrow is BL, and as the set was likely meant for the UU/NU metagame, mentioning BLs is out of context.

    In Scizor's analysis, in the Choice Band set, the final sentence before the additional comments reads, "but often U-turning to a suitable counter is often just as effective." "often" should only be there once.

    In Lucario's analysis, in the 5th paragraph of the Uber Swords Dance set, the second sentence reads, "Garchomp (and Palkia to a lesser extant)" "extant" should be "extent"

    IN Ubers overview of Froslass, it says:

    I'm not even sure what that's supposed to say.

    I swear that was supposed to have been fixed.

    Either way it is fixed now. (Or it will be once someone caches the changes.)

    Under 'Salamence's Quirks in Ubers' it says 'Something to note about Salamence is that when the opponent sees it in Ubers, they will usually assume that you are carrying Rayquaza as well.'

    now salamence can only be seen in ubers

    In the "Little Cup, Big World: A Guide to Little Cup", under the section "Mitigating Losses and Revenge Killing", there is a small error in which "a" is written instead of "I".

    I hope I put this in the right area, or am actually allowed to post this but I felt it could be brought to attention.

    I know that this analysis is a joke, but having unintentional bad grammar isn't funny. There were a lot of small edits, so I'll just post the analysis the way it should be written, (with the exception of bolding and font size on subtitles,) with changes in red. And I don't have a problem with the usage of "oft", but many spellchecks do, so I went ahead and made that correction. Also, it is odd to mention so many OU Pokémon (and an Uber), seeing that Unown is clearly NU. Also, there really isn't such a thing as "English letters", because English uses the Latin alphabet. Unown cannot form a period, but it can form an exclamation point, so I made that correction. I will leave it up to the higher-ups to rewrite the 2nd or last paragraph, because in the last paragraph, it states that anything that resits the Hidden Power Unown is carrying can defeat Unown, when in the 2nd paragraph it says that Unown can 2HKO Magikarp with HP Ice, when Water clearly resists Ice. And Microsoft Word says that the first sentence of my revised last paragraph is a fragment, but I think it's correct.

    The analysis:

    Show Hide


    Near the end of the analysis, it could also read:
    Show Hide


    And, again near the end of the analysis, it also could read:
    Show Hide


    Sorry if I missed anything

    sorry, but since this is a humour article, we sort of want to leave the funny bits in it...

    fixed this, thanks!

    i've noticed this as well, but i don't really know what it's supposed to say so there's no much i can do. :C
