    Welcome to Issue #12 of The Smog! This is the last release topic you'll see from me, but we'll be appointing some lovely new Smog Staff, as well as rewarding some well-earned Artists and Smog Contributors, so congratulations to them. ^_^ Especial thanks go to to Rising_Dusk and Deck Knight for their invaluable work on release. Enjoy!

    I think it's time I write something for in-game. Granted there was only a few things mentioned in that article, but I'd like to throw my input on it otherwise.

    Good Smog nevertheless. And don't leave me jumpluff!

    Mekkah you buffoon you used Double Colorless Energy symbol for all the Colorless Energy so Scyther has 6 energy cost for slash (this applies for the whole article)

    Great issue guys! Sorry I couldn't help out this time around.

    jumpluff, you will truly be missed. We all hope you'll come back some day. Thanks for your incredible work on The Smog and everything else you've done for Smogon :)

    I'm sorry to see you leave Jumpluff! You've always been like the mother bear of Smogon (I hope its alright comparing you to that) since you've been so nice and caring to everyone. You're contributions and hard work will be greatly missed.

    Just a note on the Predictions article I am aware of the issues in a few of the paragraphs. It will be fixed as soon as a cache of the changes go up, and older version was put in.

    Also pluffers I am sad you are going, I just can't quit you!

    The links in "Note From the Editor" do not work because the /forums/ part of the links were omitted, causing a Page not Found. Thought it was a bit funny, though it isn't that big of a deal.

    And strangely enough, the image of Roserade in http://www.smogon.com/smog/issue12/ou_threats is wrong.

    Just a small question -- I've always posted errors and such in the new Smog threads when they come out, but some people post it in the Small Objective Changes thread. Which is right?

    Thanks to everyone who contributed to this one - it looks great. Shame to see some of the staff go, though. They've done a good job, and thnks to them.

    Great issue. This is filled to the brim with content and some new really good articles (Jabba's Smogon Tabloids, Chou's Japanese Lesson). The art isn't any less awesome, especially the cover art by Cartoons. That is wicked.

    When I was asked about what art is I had no idea it would go in anything. I probably would have given a more detailed answer if I knew it would be in The Smog.

    Farewell, jumpluff. Even though you won't be contributing here, I hope you will still chat with us in KovinCorp. Good luck with everything you set out to accomplish.

    My thanks to all the artists who sent in submissions! Unfortunately due to space and content considerations not all of them were able to be included is this issue of The Smog, but do keep an eye out for future issues! I'm so glad that everyone was able to pull through for us in the end.

    The content is top-notch as always, this oughta keep me busy reading for a while :)

    And jumpluff, good luck for any future endeavours, I hope you won't be a stranger on IRC.

    I've already read it all :P

    Sorry but I haven't been able to keep my eyes outta the articles all the time we were working on them. lol

    Big thanks and pat on the back to all our editers, writers and artists who came together to make it possible. this issue has an absurd volume of content, and I know our grammar and html guys worked non-stop for ages! Jumpluff already knows about how much we (and I) will miss her.

    A nice issue, although I missed Reverb's and Phil's reoccuring articles. However, I loved Jabba's article and the artwork was top notch.

    Sad to see you go pluff, you were the driving force behind The Smog.

    So sad to see you leaving, Jumpluff. I'm sure I speak for 99% of the community when I say that.

    edit:

    Thanks! It was quite a fun article to write, too.

    I am ecstatic there was a segment on the Basic/Jungle/Fossil TCG Metagame in this Smog. It brings back so many memories. The newer ones are atrocious, back then the game was fun.

    So sorry to hear you're leaving jumpluff, please stay ='(

    You did give permission for it to be used! ^_^

    Feel free to submit a more detailed answer for the article in the next issue!

    E: The next issue's article is user-submitted, as I said at the bottom of the article of this issue. I'm just giving KG the chance to be more detailed ;)

    Very good issue, gets a LUVDISC from me.

    Not really posting this because my team is there :P. I actually enjoyed this one, best one so far imo.

    And yeah, going to miss all the stuff jumpluff does, like the others. I hope you will be back sometime, though!
