    Great work everyone. It was a fun experience working on my very first Smog article, and big thanks to all of the SPL Managers who were willing to be interviewed. ^_^
    As always, some of the artwork others have provided is incredible.

    Fantastic issue you guys. I especially liked the good commenting by ToF on the RMT.

    Edit: Raichu's Azumarill disguise was pretty cool too.

    I particularly enjoyed Deck Knight's article on predictions for B/W. It was both humorous and insightful. I think I remember the night when we were discussing the Defense-boost for Hail. Come on, Gamefreak! Also, shout-outs to the Krilowatt Report and that RMT article about presentation, those were my next favorites in the list.

    Overall, a splendid issue. I greatly look forward to more in the future. :)
