    Arcanine's D/P analysis page: http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/arcanine

    On the physical Life Orb set, a nature isn't specified. Considering what's written in Other Options, it should probably be Intimidate.

    On Ponyta's analysis (http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/ponyta), I think I found a typo.

    The nature IS specified, it's the ability that isn't. If you read the additional comments you'll see:

    "With Arcanine's two excellent abilities, it can make a very effective switch-in to various threats. Flash Fire is recommended because not only does it allow Arcanine to destroy Weezing, Spiritomb, and most Fire-type Pokemon, but it also gives Arcanine extra firepower for Flare Blitz. Intimidate is still useful, however, since it allows Arcanine to switch in more reliably against Pokemon such as Leafeon."

    In the first paragraph of the Lead set:

    I believe the bolded part should say "set up a layer of", not "layers".

    In the first paragraph of her one set, "Corsola also resists Rock-, Fire-, Flying-, and Normal-type attacks..." Corsola does not resist rock type attacks (but she does resist ice and poison!). Not that anyones using her :(

    lol, S_A =P
    Isn't it a bit odd to refer to it as "it" and then refer to it as Beedrill in the same sentence xD I would actually rather it be changed to:

    But that's exactly what it was before, which is grammatically incorrect. It can be changed to either what I originally suggested, or perhaps:

    UU overview. IIRC, 2 subjects joined by "and" make a plural verb.. missing commas?

    OU overview. There's a missing comma between stats and which, i think.. The overview also kind of just stops, but that's a bit subjective..

    OU Choice band set refers to "the set above", which R_D says to not do.. high powered is also supposed to have a hyphen

    actually, the subject is "the common presence" which is singular

    i'll let the author do what he wants, but i did fix the bad phrase

    i don't know anything about the rules for the set above, but i fixed the other one

    thank you for your suggestions!

    I have noticed a typo in the Crobat analysis. I found this in the optional changes.

    "Crobat has a wide variety of EV spreads it can run, due to the different roles it can fulfill. You can reduce the Speed number to 144 EVs, as this puts Crobat at 356 Speed, just enough to outpace +1 Speed Tyranitar."

    Those speed EV's put Crobat at 365 speed, not 356. If you only had 356 Spe, you wouldn't outrun base 115s nor Scarftar.

    In UU Trick Room Trapper- Team Options & Additional Comments:

    The error is pretty obvious, the sentence is incomplete. I'm going to guess it was supposed to be:
