    Hurrah for the Fire Emblem reference in the In Game tiering article, beyond that, featured Pokemon and the Featured LC team were a pair of articles that really stood out for me.

    There's a small error in the section dedicated to Nattorei. It mentions that Leftovers and Rest are the only ways for Nattorei to recover HP. Leech Seed is very common on Nattorei, and even if it wasn't, it should still be mentioned.

    Probably just nit-picking, but it was something I saw. Great issue, very informative.

    Edit: Oh, and in the Type Analysis section, when talking about Terakion, it's mentioned that only Claydol and Goruggu resist Fighting/Rock together. Nidoking/Nidoqueen resist that combination as well.

    Well worth the wait. Good job for everyone and their hard work who got involved as usual. I particularly liked the Manaphy art (:D).

    Great issue.
    I especially liked the cover art and the interview with Phil. Seems like you had it rather easy in the beginning badge-wise didn't you :P.

    A Small error. In Philio's interview, it says:
    Whereas it should be, Smogon Premier League. But its minute.

    This is just awesome. I really enjoyed the articles about the 5th generation, and I especially liked the one about fallen stars. It made me sad...

    All in all, an excellent issue. Great job, everyone.

    Good issue. Lots of stuff that was fun to read.

    So many odd errors though :/

    Should be "super-effective on"
    Should be an "it" or "she" before the "is"
    (this is from the ingame tierlist article)

    (power creep article)

    should be "latter"
    should be "Fighting-types"; same mistake twice; also "Ground" is not capitalized
    (borken unsaid rules)

    Begging for votes does not a good post make.

    Edit: Just read your post 3 times, who the fuck are you...Yoda?

    And posting your ladder peaks doesn't make you a good battler. Learn to comprehend a post you -censored-, nowhere in my post did I ask for votes, I was suprised that I got nominated for anything, that's all.

    Now, now, keep it civil here.. :)

    Also, if you find weird errors or small objective issues, don't post them here since they won't get fixed. Post them here and they will get properly taken care of.

    What an awesome issue! Great job you guys.

    My personal favorites were the top 10 manliest Pokemon, Judge a Pokemon and the Nattorei analysis.
