    Post small changes to pages on the site here. Fundamental idea: if there is something wrong with a page on the site and your fix does not change the structure of it, then post it here instead of making a new topic. (Quick addition: if your change is controversial, this is not the topic for it. Post a new topic with your ideas so others can criticize them.)

    Why are there no posts here?: When something gets fixed in this thread the post is deleted, don't be weirded out by the lack of posts!

    SCMS people: You don't need to post here. Just make the change yourself. If you fix someone else's problem, please post that you did so.

    When corrections are made by Site Staff, the post reporting the error will be deleted.


    ~ It would be wonderful if you linked to the page you want to correct, that makes fixing it that much quicker. Please link to the page on the site. I'm tired of trying to find the page to edit something, only to read through the whole thing and realize you were talking about the ADV analysis or something dumb. If you just say something like "Geodude needs to have 5 more Attack EVs on its Rock Throw set" without linking to the analysis, you will be infracted. If you can't take the time to just add a link, then it's not that helpful.

    ~ If the errors you find are limited to certain parts of a page, it's a great idea to clarify in which areas your edits are located. For example, "On Kakuna's 'Ubers Support' set, x needs to be capitalized". Better yet is quoting the context so the section you're talking about is quickly and easily found.

    NOTICE #1: Badged members, do NOT just auto-correct all the suggestions. A lot of the time, the suggestion isn't grammatically correct.

    NOTICE #2: Be clear about what you have fixed and always make a post AFTER the corrected post to note this.

    NOTICE #3: I've noticed that for some reason on the credits page that strings of text will move around the page in between edits from when a person edits the page and when someone caches it. Nobody is doing this on purpose, and it irritates me that it happens, though it mostly happens at the very bottom of the page after the last </dd> tag. For a while there it was "Symphx" that was jumping down, and then a few times it was "ed seve" that jumped. IDK why or how this happens, just be aware that it does.

    More removals of Genesect.


    "Kyurem has a weakness to Stealth Rock which limits the amount of times it is able to come in throughout the match, and weaknesses to Rock-, Steel- and Fighting-type attacks leave it at the mercy of faster attackers such as Mega Metagross, Genesect, and Pheromosa; however, these threats have difficulty switching into Kyurem."
    "Hidden Power Fire rounds out Kyurem's coverage by hitting Genesect, Ferrothorn, and mainly Mega Scizor, which take the rest of Kyurem's moves well."
    "4 Defense EVs are used to avoid giving Genesect an Attack boost so that it cannot throw out a strong U-turn or Iron Head against Kyurem's partners."


    Slower wallbreakers appreciate Shuckle setting up Sticky Web; some examples would be Psychium Z Hypnosis Xurkitree, Mamoswine, Tapu Bulu, Choice Band Genesect, Choice Specs Primarina, Magearna, and Tapu Lele.


    "Fire Punch nails Genesect, Scizor, and Ferrothorn, making sure they cannot set up or be an annoyance to Jirachi's team or Jirachi itself."
    "Maximum Speed and a Jolly nature are mandatory to outspeed and flinch Pokemon such as +1 Zygarde, KO Choice Scarf Genesect, and speed tie (also, this should be changed to Speed tie) with +1 Mega Charizard X and Salamence."
    "Fire Punch is used for Ferrothorn, Celesteela, Genesect, Scizor, and other Steel-types which would otherwise take this set on due to their immunity to Toxic."
    "A Speed-boosting nature is essential to outpace or speed tier (speed tier here should be changed to Speed tier) with a multitude of Choice Scarf users such as Genesect, Excadrill, Tapu Lele, and opposing Jirachi."


    "Adamant gives Mega Pinsir a good chance to OHKO defensive Landorus-T with a +1 Return after Stealth Rock and an increased probability of OHKOing faster threats such as Genesect and Latios with a +2 Quick Attack."

    Did all these except for the last one in the Kyurem analysis, since it is a sentence fully based on Genesect and I do not know how the OU QC team would want that changed

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but the menu sprites for mega Pokemon often don't display correctly. For example, if you go to this page ( http://www.smogon.com/dex/sm/pokemon/ ), click the search button, and type "mega", you'll see that some of the results show the menu sprites of the base forms when they're supposed to show the menu sprites of the mega forms.
