    Post small subjective changes in this thread. This thread is for subjective changes only. If you find an error that is syntactical, grammatical, typographical, orthographical, or technical please use the Small changes thread.

    Subjective changes includes:
    • Removing excess move options from a move set.
    • Small additions to a move set.
    • A change in an EV Spread.
    • Any small additions or revisions to Other Options or Counters.
    • Any small change that is subjective in nature, but is too trivial to go in a peer edit.

    Notice: To those with SCMS access, you do not need to post here. Simply make the change yourself directly and provide your reasoning in the "Edit Reason" box. If you make a change suggested by another user on the SCMS, please list your reasoning as "Small Changes Thread" so one of us can come and delete the appropriate posts.

    Couple each post with a link to the relevant analysis or article you are requesting a change in. Most importantly, if you are suggesting something - back it up with reasoning. It doesn't help us to know that you think Farfetch'd should run 220 HP EVs; what helps us is knowing why you think Farfetch'd should run 220 HP EVs.

    Talonflame's OU analysis suggests a few sets running Acrobatics, for which no item is recommended. Instead of having no line for the hold item, it should have "Item: None" written there. The lack of an item listing sort of implies that the hold item is irrelevant to me. Also, it would be useful in case there'll be sets where the item is slashed with the option of not holding an item (even though so far the only niches of no item is Acrobatics and lowering Knock Off damage on mons without a Dark weakness).

    the dex is set up so that you can only use item names in that slot, so putting "None" will cause an error, and leaving it blank is the way "no item" should be submitted. alternate item choices are a problem i suppose, but in that case we'd just put the primary option on the set and mention the secondary option in set details

    Ah, that makes sense. By the way, would it make sense to run Sitrus Berry on those Talonflame sets? They'd help with switching in if Stealth Rocks are up.

    This isn't really the thread for that, but just to answer your question quickly: the issue is that Talonflame will, most of the time, be paired with a reliable hazard remover. So, the times that it switches in without Stealth Rocks, Acrobatics would have half the power, and no real way for Talonflame to activate its own Sitrus Berry.
