    I think either something goes there, or it's "a" instead of "and."

    As I recall, Latias has been banned to Ubers, so there is no need to mention Latias as a threat in the OU metagame.

    I'm too lazy to check the other articles, but I'm going to bet that there are a bunch that should be checked for instances of Latias being a threat.

    On the UU lead set there is the following sentace " The nature and Speed IV allow it to be slower than all Snover, so that sandstorm takes precedence over hail if the two leads are opposing each other."

    However to find out what speed IV is required the person has to click the Team Optins and additional comments tab then read to the second to last line.

    Alright, I know this is very trivial as almost no one probably looks at it anymore, but one of Snorlax's G/S movesets is completely wrong.
    The Belly Drummer set relies on Snorlax setting up by using lovely kiss. As far as I know, Snorlax has never learned lovely kiss, and neither has anyone else other for Jynx.
    Even if I'm wrong, and somewhere along the line he did learn it, this says other wise:

    Again, it's very trivial, but I figured I'd contribute.

    Lovely Kiss is a NYPC event move, so is perfectly legal on GSC Snorlax (though some have called it broken). And it's not trivial, please bring this kind of thing up in future.

    Done.

    The Drapion analysis is currently being rewritten. Crunch is slashed in with Night Slash in its analysis.

    Done.

    Done.

    Done.

    Broken for sure.
    I was just confused for the most part because he wasn't listed in the pokemon that learned Lovely Kiss. I knew something was wrong, thanks for the clarification.

    Walrein Analysis - a few changes relating to a suggested change of mine that has recently been accepted (spread change to 0 spd)

    QUOTE]
    With Toxic Spikes support, Walrein can afford to drop Toxic from its moveset. However, you may still want to hold onto it to enable Walrein to poison Flying and Levitating enemies, specifically Gyarados. If you decide to dispense with Toxic, you have a couple of useful options to use in its place. Roar works if your team is in need of a phazer, and it also has applications more specific to this set. First of all, you can shuffle another opponent in to let Toxic Spikes take hold. Secondly, you can prevent Skarmory from Whirlwinding your Substitute away by Roaring him out first. Roar will also mean that Gyarados cannot simply Dragon Dance in Walrein's face, and will force it to take even more residual damage upon re-entry. Earthquake is a great choice to hit Poison-types coming in to absorb Toxic Spikes, thus ruining your set up. It also helps to wear down Steel-types, who are also immune to poison and can generally make nuisances of themselves.
    [/QUOTE]

    This never really could realistically be done, but since now the spread has been changed, this sentence is pretty incorrect. Replacing Skarmory with Swampert and Whirlwind with Roar would work perfectly well, or it could be mentioned that you can only do this with significant speed investment.

    Not sure where to post this but this seems to be the most appropriate thread.

    In the Venusaur analysis, the fourth paragraph of the Mixed Attacker set mentions Cresselia -- now BL -- as a counter. I believe the set was written with UU usage in mind, not OU, so that mention of Cresselia should be removed.

    Empoleon analysis, lead set (again)

    Either "Rotom-A is generally a good partner to Empoleon" or "The Rotom Appliances are generally good partners to Empoleon." I feel "to" is better than "with" particularly in the case of the second suggestion, which could make it sound like you should use more than one Rotom forme together as partners. This is of secondary importance though.

    About Flash Fire: "Grants immunity to Fire-type moves and increases Fire-type move's power 50% when hit by a Fire-type move."

    Should have move's changed to moves', as more than one fire type move gets boosted. If "move" must be singular, it needs an article, so a Fire-type move's would be correct as well.

    Shaymin analysis - Choice Specs
    There is now a scarf set in the analysis, so suggesting it as a surprise gimmick is not a good idea. Also, some specs users make awful scarfers (e.g Lucario) so this entire sentence should be removed.

    A tiny mistake at the end of the sweeper set:

    Potential Baton Pass recipients should be adept at taking on Scyther's common counters, so using a Fighting-type like Hitmonlee or Hitmontop or a Ground-type like Rhyperior or Torterra is recommended.p>

    The MixLead Swampert set says Ice Beam will keep Mence at bay and will do passable damage to Celebi. Don't rely on it two much on the later two. It should be the later one since it refered to Latias who is now UBER.

    It's an Internet Explorer thing, as it doesn't happen on Chrome and happens for every Pokemon page.

    under "counters" it says:

    "Hid ability causes a sandstorm, gives him a Special Defense boost and allowing Tyranitar to shrug off any Ice Beams Froslass may try to use."

    First sentence of the first analysis:
    This set shows you right off the bat why you would use Tangrowth and not Celebi: Sleep Powder, Knock Off and Power Whip.
    "Knock Off" needs a comma after it.

    EDIT:

    "It can switch into Heatran, Vaporeon, and Jolteon, with impunity, thanks to Trace."
    Does the comma after Jolteon really need to be there?
