    Dragonite was meant to be Devious. This was a fuck-up by Raikage.

    Good job to all the winners and runner ups, the articles were interesting too.

    There were very few mistakes, like in the normal article, on offensive moves, it says Super Fang has 100 accuracy, when it has 90. Also no Togekiss... :(

    Anyways, it was a great issue, and great job!

    Great issue, the art was excellent. It was cool to be nominated, congrats to the winners.

    The only "complaint" I have is that most of the spotlight matches in the Tournament Coverage weren't really spotlight matches, but whatever.

    I found the "How to Avoid Getting Caught" article very enlightening.

    Great job, as always.

    Great job for releasing Smog 6.

    I enjoyed the "Flavor of the month: Gravity"

    I have a feeling Gravity teams will become more popular.

    ETA: np stands for 'no problem' or 'now playing' e.g. 'now playing: yeah yeah yeahs - zero'

    I was most amused by Mekkah's statement that he'd make an exception to normally not wanting to be voted for that once! Also, "How to Avoid Getting Caught" was amusing.

    Always brightens my day when I see a new Smog is up. Great job.

    I never knew there was such a thing as Rotom-S. What a useless excuse for a Rotom.

    Great issue, I'm really liking what I've read so far, but I do have one nitpick. the normal type analysis says that swords dance is the classic penultimate boosting move, penultimate means second to last, how is swords dance the second to last boosting move? In the same section it also mentions gliscor, scizor and infernape as users but not lucario.
