    A little over two months have passed since the last issue was released. Today we're bringing to you a new one, and it is our most successful release to date. Featuring a grand total of 41 articles and over 60 art pieces made specifically for the Smog, issue #20 is one that I am sure you will enjoy reading. Of course, all of our recurring articles such as Judge A Pokemon, Featured Type, Featured RMTs, and the Interviews are back with new stories and information to share with you, but we also have new articles. The Pokemon Biology, the top 20 Memorable Articles in the Smog, Introduction to Triple Battles, How to Control Luck, and Underrated Movesets are some off the top of my head, and of course we also have the results of the Smog Awards ready for you to check them out! Really, among 41 articles, what can't you find? I'm sure it's not a lot!

    Now, this is a very special release for us, for several reasons. Not only have we reached two new milestones—once again—with the number of articles and the artwork that we're featuring this issue, but we have also become a magazine that's been live on the Internet for three years. This is all an absolutely amazing achievement, and I want to shout a big "Thank you!" to all of you out there who have contributed to the Smog and to our readers too — without you the Smog would not be such a success. Keep up the good work!

    I am thrilled with our team's work. And we are going to continue making the best online Pokemon magazine in the world. Cheers!

    Thanks to everyone who voted for me in the Smog Awards, as well as to all the readers and contributors who have supported The Smog throughout its twenty issues. I've been involved with probably a majority of them, and every issue I am impressed by how much it's grown from Issue 1. And, like last time, special thanks to the last-minute artists (particularly Fatecrashers and Birkal) and GPers who made release possible. ^_^

    Yes, my constant nagging about interviewing Haunter finally worked!

    Great issue as always, thanks to all contributors! I'll update Article Index asap.

    yay, my question got accepted :)
    This issue was really nice. I love the most dangerous pokemon article... though If you send a pokeball at Aggron, dont you have 10 seconds while it shakes a couple times? Or are you required to stand and watch it shake, and say, "aw so close afterwards"? Either way, good job.

    This just in:

    [12:31pm] Daenym: I stopped reading your article in the first sentence
    [12:31pm] Daenym: since it's clearly outdated
    [12:31pm] Daenym: mentions DST


    SUE ME.

    Great work you guys, did a large skim over everything, and this is gonna be a good one to read over the toilet / classroom / whenever I have the chance to read every single section of it.

    I'm kinda interested in contributing to it sometime in the future too :>

    I'd like to make a special shoutout to Yilx for doing the art for my article, it looks completely badass onsite, and I honestly couldn't be happier how it turned out. Thank you so much Yilx for putting so much time into it, you're a complete boss.

    And thank you to anyone who voted for me for the Smog awards, despite that I didn't win anything, I got to see the votes when we were compiling them, and the fact that I at least got some votes was heartwarming lol.

    Congrats on 20 issues The Smog, and thank you to the workhorses (you guys know who you are) who really made this issue possible!

    Thanks to everyone who played a roll getting this issue off the ground. I particularly enjoyed the locopoke alt roll call and the Theorymon bit in the fake awards.
