    Good eye, sandz. Added!

    Perfect Cell, that's an awesome resource, but it's better off in OI where Frontier discussion belongs, so I've moved it there ^.^

    I think it would also be a good idea to show the old gen analyses that have already been updated.

    And Hipmonlee's RBY guide is very good and contains pretty useful info regarding the main threats and the importance of status.

    Just a nitpick, Hip's guide that Jellicent posted redirects to a Borat's guide.
    Good job!

    Two really great Youtube channels I've been browsing that have older generation replays are Callous' and Old Gen Archives. Sadly, OldGenArchives seems to have stopped uploading.

    An update possibly. With the addition of the viability ranking threads, I think they are good references to list here, in additions to a couple nominations.

    RBY
    GSC
    RSE
    DPP

    The old gen mechanics testing thread

    And it's not really an info thread, but whatever current mini-tourney is up can be linked (just a thought)?

    Added the viability rankings, as well as speed tiers and threat lists (how were they not on here ?_?), plus a few other selections like the DPP Warstory Archive, RBY Mechanical Differences, and some community projects.

    I'd rather the archive be concise than a super huge pile of links, but I would like to see some more stuff added. I'll add to it as I think of things, but feel free to make more noms~

    Finally added BW OU stuff to this. Should I add resources to other metas (Ubers, lower tiers, Doubles, LC) as well? I'd rather have this be a very concise resource that's easy for new players to navigate at a glance, but it seems a shame to leave out so much great info. I might just totally revamp this to spruce it up, so I'm open to suggestions here :3

    Should probably note that PO has better RBY support than NBS does these days, and of course a much bigger player base. (NBS has some minor improper mechanics involving Mimic but also the wrong type chart regarding Bug vs. Ghost.)

    It's also the only reliable GSC simulator as of now. (Proper mechanics and no freezes - GSC has some Pursuit-related freezes that I cannot remember from the top of my head)

    Depends on the generation and tier. I think any Uber tier is good to add. For lower tiers, most seem niche besides DPP and BW. I wouldn't bother with anything else yet unless they're requested.
