    "Can't Tyranitar do more than this though? Shockingly, yes. Tyranitar can deploy Dragon Dance to make its Attack even more ridiculous and boost its mediocre Speed."

    That is pretty terribly written...

    Well, the Laddering guide was an obvious sucess. I think articles such as those will get a lot of attention and are a really good idea. Good work everyone!

    Like almost everybody else, I enjoyed Reverb's guide--it was interesting to look at the actual laddering process for once instead of the battling theory behind it. Great work as usual, everyone!

    Great again, especially the art (I never knew Kevin Garrett could produce such a brilliant ladder). I need to get involved with this.

    Excellent work, as always.

    As with the majority of people, I especially liked the laddering guide in particular. Seeing as I completely agree with the "Defeating Your Worst Enemy: Yourself" segment of the article. Also, I applaud Kevin Garrett for creating that ladder.

    Keep up the good work, guys.
