    We're in double digits now, and what better way to signify it than with our biggest issue yet? It's teeming in metagame and strategy-related content, which should make everyone happy. Not to mention the art is great as usual! We hope you all enjoy it, from the interview with MoP to the ADV metagame analysis, from the Latias history to the UU offense analysis. As Jimbo says, happy reading!

    I was worried that with my absence this issue wouldn't be out on time but everyone really came through. Thank you to all of the Smog Contributors and writers. You all did a fantastic job.

    There was so much that I learned from this article that I need to take a breather from all of it! I particularly loved the 'core' humor introduction. Excellent job, everyone.

    Best issue yet! Per usual, there are little pieces of analysis here and there that I don't agree with, but eh, that will pretty much always be the case. I really enjoyed it and lol congrats on kotw for making the featured rmt! You're faaaaaaaaaamous!

    Congrats on making it to double digits, and great job everyone! Though I will admit that I was surprised that CeleTran was not included in the Core Crisis article.

    Already fixed it. Guys, please don't post the trivia in this thread. ^^;; It's meant to be PMed to user The Smog. By the way, I wanna extend a hand to our newly-badged Smog artists: Yilx, Buffalo_Wings, *Hen*, and HellaHellaStyle! Congratulations!

    I'm still reading all the articles, but I'll say this now: excellent article by Earthworm. I would never have thought that much, and an article like that is just great to read. It does seem to suffer from being overly verbose, but otherwise it mentions things that I didn't even think about.

    Excellent article again, Earthworm!

    But I'm stuck wondering- what's Raikou doing on the front >_>
