    It was fantastic, and I loved the artwork.

    However, there are a couple of mistakes in the normal type analysis, such as P-Zs Special attack stat and swellows attack and speed stats.

    Jabba's article was really good too.

    haha as usual jabba steals the show with his article which strangely some of the tips he recommended was already stuff I follow (minus the porn watching to divert attention lol), but yeah great job overall and thanks to the people who voted for me!

    I loved it, as usual. The artwork in the normal type analysis was pretty funny, namely the blissey and snorlax. I'm also pretty glad I got a mention in the tourney matches part. It's propbably only because I faced Jabba, but hey, I'll take it! =D I'm known! I'm known! Yay! Good work guys!

    It looks like a lot of people found "how not to get caught" informative. It also got me to thinking how to think more discreetly ;)

    Very interesting and useful articles as usual (the one about getting caught was the funniest thing I've read in ages), however I noticed an increasing number of typos and grammar/punctuation issues (also a few minor factual errors as some people have noted) throughout the various articles... I was just wondering, does someone actually proofread each article before it's submitted? Or was this issue rushed out or something?

    I just realised that it would be as bad to answer 'yes' as it would be to say 'no' to that question...

    I lol'd at "How to Avoid Getting Caught". Although it's not shameful to play competitive Pokemon, so what? It's fun, just don't give a ****.

    The art did sem very nice this issue, kudos to the artists on that one.

    Jabba's article was pretty good too, although the UU one was probably my favorite.

    All in all, a great read from e-cover to e-cover.

    I got a great lol out of the How to avoid getting caught article, if only because it's completely 100% opposite of that at my college. xP I immediately made sure everyone knew I was into Pokemon when I was a freshman, and made more friends than I ever could have hoped for. We have tournaments fairly often, and I actually lost the first one to someone who didn't know about EVs/IVs before I taught her. x3 And supposedly a crapton of the freshmen this year are into Pokemon--me and the rest of the upperclassmen have been seeking them out and figuring out the skill level of each.

    Just got to reading through most of it. Great job.

    "How To Avoid Getting Caught" gave me some good laughs. What I've done similar to Tip #3 is use two different browsers. One has Smogon and other sites bookmarked while the main browser just has Facebook and stuff.
