    In the Superachi! set (4th set), at the top of the third paragraph, the following sentence occurs:

    I think what they mean is "teammates of this set should" or "teammates for this set should".

    Just wondering, does Smogon accept the spelling "miniscule" (should technically be "minuscule.") Since it is so commonly misspelt it is sometimes considered a variant spelling. There is an example of the spelling being used in the new Blissey analysis on site. From the EV section:

    Yeah sorry this is not objective, but it is arguably a spelling error, so I suppose it goes in this thread.

    I noticed this in the Heatran analysis that was added just a few days ago. I'm pretty sure this is an objective change, but forgive me if I'm wrong, since it's not a grammatical error or typo.

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/heatran

    The standard listed EVs for the set state 212 SpA, so these alternate EVs actually make Heatran STRONGER, even if only by one or two points (not sure if Modest gives a bonus point there).

    Just a small edit in Magmortar's 1st set, 1st Paragraph, in the Strategydex.

    That's correct the way it is actually.

    "... over his fellow Fire-type" is referring to Heatran, not every other Fire-type. Hence the reason why the paragraph started off with "Although Heatran..."

    "Than" should be "that".

    electrode's rain dance set description still says roserade will cause problems, and honchkrow is a good counter for it. I think this needs to be changed, as they are now both out of UU (to what I'm not sure. I dont think this is a controversial change though)

    Some UU analyses were done before various BL bans, which means that their set comments are out of date. Unfortunately, changing it would be a larger job than the ones meant for this thread. The C&Cers will get around to updating the various set comments when we can.

    I didn't really know where to post this so I put it here, figuring this was the best place.

    Shuckle's analysis, "acupressure" set:

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/shuckle

    On the sixth line the expression "Earthquake completes the infamous EdgeQuake STAB" is incorrect, as Shuckle doesn't get STAB with ground attacks. I believe "combination" or something like that would be the correct word here.

    does the counters section look really bloated to anyone else? ie. there's too much space between the paragraphs? or is it just me?

    also, bullet punch should probably be added to that last paragraph...

    Introduction:

    "and also to give shortcuts in order efficiently build teams" - shouldn't there be a "to" between 'order' and 'efficiently'?

    edit: General Rules for HP:

    "HP divisible by 16 is always handy, but HP divisible by 16 16 + 1" - redundant "16".

    DPP Kingdra, Mixed Rain Dance set
    "Fast Choice Scarf users such as Flygon and Latias make good revenge killers as well as faster opposing Kingdra’s with the Swift Swim ability as well."
    - redundant "as well"
    - plural of Kingdra is Kingdra
    - generally "faster opposing Kingdra" is a bit awkward, i didnt understand what it was trying to say on my first read-through

    HeaTrap team options (last paragraph)
    vaporeon, the excellent vaporeon counter

    not sure how this is supposed to read, probably that vaporeon is the gyarados counter and celebi for vaporeon. it's just a little awkward !
