    I'm currently busy with my other guide / uni work, but would it be possible for someone to do an OU Baton Pass guide? It was decided a while ago not to have analyses for baton passers (a few have slipped through, but still), and not to have such a strong strategy represented on site at all seems kind of wrong.

    I suppose I could do it after the current one, but I'm sure there's someone better for the job.

    You can write a letter about it for the Other Metagames hub. Feel free to follow the regular procedures here.

    If anyone wants to take over the Ubers Sand guide, it would probably be for the best. I've had a sudden influx of quite a lot of work and it won't get done for a while under my command.

    Going to put Team Rocket Elite's Battle Subway Pokémon and Trainers charts in article format, like Jump's Battle Tower Pokémon articles. Already got his permission, and Nexus's. <3

    Nexus has given me permission to write a Guide on How To Handle Entry Hazards in NU. I'll have it posted when I can.

    How about an article about standard team archetypes for OU? And perhaps one for every tier.

    Can I revamp the UU threatlist? It looks awfully outdated, including Pokemon that are so irrelevant (like Altaria and Emboar), while discluding extremely relevant Pokemon (such as Froslass and Umbreon).

    I volunteer to do the UU Speed Tiers as I have metagame knowledge

    EDIT: Oh dear, the above guy beat me to it. Ah well.

    I'll ask him if I can have the spot


    Also suggesting to be an author for a UU article: Guide to UU Stall
