    This isn't a HUGE problem, as most people read the articles in order, but the Previous Article button on the page for "XY Standouts" leads to "XY Little Cup: The Bullies Are Back In Town" when it should lead to "XY Little Cup: The Rise and Fall of Sneasel". Just a small bug I happened to catch! ^^

    sandz edit this has been fixed thanks :)

    Hey all, Loved the issue. I have a small nitpick to toss in here for you all. Someone should note in the trivia section that there are more than 5 breakable walls in XY as there are two halves to the Lost Hotel with the lower half having 6 breakable walls in it alone. So I believe that should be updated as incorrect trivia isn't really trivia at all. Other than that, great stuff guys

    Not necessarily completely an error, but in the fairies article it says a fairy typing would have prevented Cresselia from getting wrecked by Tyranitar or Scizor. However, Scizor's Steel STAB would now hit Cresselia for tons of damage.

    oops i think i forgot to look inside the hotel
    don't mind me, just being incompetent (the real answer is 8 @ lost hotel + 2 @ victory road = 10)

    edit: alright so Magnemite and AOPSUser now tie at 7 points each

    In Article Approvals, anyone can pitch for a topic they'd like to write for, and we also accept artists, HTML coders and people who check grammar and prose (GP), as specified here.

    Did "overworld" in question 9 only refer to outdoor areas? I checked all of the buildings and outdoor areas and found more Espurr than Skiddo, but if you only count outdoor areas, there are more Skiddo.

    Also, does this mean I get to pick a custom title?

    As an RU player, I'm always pleased when there are RU related articles. Fortunately for me, there are a lot of RU articles. It's a long way to April and Gen 6 RU, so I really enjoyed the Gen 6 predictions article. Overall, I think it was a very good Smog with the highlights being the Checks/Counters article, the Assault Vest Article, the fairy type articles, and of course the RU predictions article.

    I liked Smogon in 2013 and Checks and Counters. A good laugh and some insights on these key concepts of the meta.

    That denko thing was hilarious!

    I loved the cover. I really like the pokémon art used in (almost) each section.
