    I was the "anonymous" question asker in ask the admins. For some reason my post was deleted.

    Good job!
    I loved it.

    Hey, just one little thing. In the Kingler section of the HG/SS UU changes, it mentions that with agility it can outspeed choice scarf Rotom. However the set given has crabhammer and return for attacking options, so it just doesn't really seem to make much sense.

    Nice articles and some areas are greatly improved especially the tournament section. The tournament section was more in depth of a specific tournament. Although, I would like a small little brief presented by past articles of other tournaments finished or currently played.

    Excellent work as usual, I especially enjoyed the art in this issue, it was really well done, really the only nitpick I had was with the tourney's article especially considering the world cup had such a good finals, it should have gotten at least a mention imo... but anyways I like the whole idea of people picking favorites and making notable matches, the format looks pretty well set (and awesome) for future issues. keep it up!

    394 Atk vs 190 Def & 241 HP (90 Base Power): 261 - 307 (108.30% - 127.39%)

    LO Crabhammer absolutely destroys Choice Scarf Rotom.

    Great issue! The fallen stars article was pretty insanely awesome. I'm a huge fan of reading stuff like that. I also enjoyed the NU article as well. The sprites article was really opinionated and pushy though, IMO.

    Another great read, probably the best issue yet. I especially liked reading about poor old Heracross in the fallen stars article. I know who to base my next team around! Keep up the good work!

    I will add your name to this question in the article, and I apologize. When the time came to get the article on-site I could not find the original post.

    I absolutely loved the articles about the HGSS sprites and UU suspect nominations. Kinda disappointed over the bog standard featured OU and UU teams.

    Thanks guys, always glad to hear good feedback.

    That would be Rocket Grunt, who should all get your praise for being a cool artist.

    Just wondering why Dark Lucario wasn't interviewed, seeing as he won the Smog Tour recently.

    Otherwise, an awesome informative and well rounded issue. You guys do a great job ^^;
