    Tsk, and yet another happy occasion is ruined by unhappy news. Proud to be a pessimist.

    Well, in all seriousness, R_D, I feel safe in assuming that we'll all miss you too. It's been nice to have somebody so capable around and dare I say in charge, and the world's a worse place now. Though I have complete confidence in Setsuna & co.

    On the plus side, this is a fantastic issue to end on. Excellent work to all concerned.

    Thank you for being such a star RD and keeping the smog alive! It was my baby for a while (tangerine if you see this fu!!!) and I'm glad to see it's still going strong. Good luck Setsuna, you'll do a great job.

    The difference is that Shuckle requires setup, Kyogre does not. (That is kind of the point; the article is actually correct)

    Also, thanks for all the warm feelings guys! I'm glad that you are enjoying this issue and think I did a good job in my time here. :3

    Once again, this was an excellent issue, and as usual I want to take a couple seconds to congratulate all the Smog users who contributed to this issue and helped made it yet another successful edition -- you're all great.

    Rising_Dusk: you've been an astounding headitor, and I can't really stress this enough. I tried my best to keep you here with us for a little longer and it is real sadness to see you part, but at the same time I understand your reasons for doing so and that's fair enough. ;) And well, now I finally took over the PayPal account, at least...

    Anyway, thanks everyone. I love the Smog and I'll keep doing my best to contribute to and lead this successful online magazine. Cheers!

    obviously you just have had bad luck with your salamences because the strongest and best ones are pink


    (answer: because i felt like it)

    Great issue and all that, but i do have one question: Why does it say "Released 8th January 2011"? Shouldn't it be 2012?
