    You got... 2 pieces of art for 2 articles? I even cropped them nicely and edited mew out of Mewtwo's to make standalone pieces :P

    But actually, we were pretty giddy ourselves when we noticed that mewtwo and mew would feature in the same mag-- ibo and I just happened to pick them at the same time, independently without talking with each other. We figured a bit of compilation art to commemorate was in store.

    So I originally proposed to SDS that we have a compiled piece for the cover, but we wanted to get some fresh blood on the cover art. It's a great piece and it's good to see more awesome new artists getting featured! Looking forward to seeing more from you in the future

    Thanks again to R_D and Setsuna for all the work in getting this up each time :)

    Chou, I really enjoyed your interview by the way. I have lurked around these forums for a while, and the interviews really help me know more about fellow Smogonites.

    I haven't read everything yet, but I did notice this error in the Recently in C&C article.

    It was in the GP paragraph, of all places:

    (Should be "a timely manner") Can I be an official GP now?

    At least it wasn't in the GP article. Now that would've been ironic. Fixed.

    The Featured Pokemon and Type Analysis articles are great as always. They are very descriptive and pretty good reads. Dragonite in particular is described well; it is quite a monster with Multiscale, and its parashuffler set is especially annoying and difficult to deal with.

    Is Seven Deadly Sins still promoting Jellicent? ...

    It's actually 436 Attack.

    Great job as always. I've been reading The Smog since it came out. It's one of the major reasons why I use to come back to the main site so often. The other big reason used to be "recently in C&C", but for some reason that got scratched. Pity.

    Anyway, this issue had a really enjoyable article about joining the Smogon community, so I read it and joined. Do you have a specific thread for hello-sayers?

    Water Type Analysis:

    Water-types in OU > Cloyster:

    Shell Blade should be Razor Shell.

    I'm fairly sure that comma shouldn't be there.

    Art panel article:

    Kevin Garrett?

    Another outstanding issue! I'm always happy for a chance to make Rotation Battles a little more popular.

    Good job guys, I really like reading the art panel, keep it up.

    Just out of curiosity, is there supposed to be that many Vanillites in the articles?

    Oh, well since we are pointing out flaws in the articles...

    In the rotation battles article, there are a couple of mistakes, mostly with the sprites for Reuniclus and Excadrill. Why are they Cofagrigus and Simisear?

    The pictures in "Core Crisis II" are kind of messed up. Ferrothorn is pictured as a vanillish, and Darmanitan is one of the caterpie equivalent bugs.

    that's a browser-related issue. I'm assuming you're using firefox? I think we are working on that atm
