    As we all know, our userbase is young. Like really young. Like, not even of drinking age in sane countries let alone the United States. As a result, many aren't too hot with reading. When locking a thread, I believe an image would be better suited than reasons. Nintendo's localization staff has been kind enough to give us the Pokemon "Golurk" this generation. I think that image before locking a thread is sufficient. I would ask all moderators to please follow through with this as standard procedure starting immediately.

    For reference:

    Warning: a forum mods may need to use caution as our userbase is somewhat older which results in a bit of memory loss. I think they're still trying to memorize last generation's Pokemon.

    I am under the impression that the usage of circumlocution in our reply posts in order to cease all discussion, especially the discussion of a subpar variety, in a given thread is of the utmost necessity for our youthful base of Smogon community forum users to ascertain knowledge of the English language that will enable them to develop as growing human beings. This course of action in all ideality should allow our ungraceful jezebels to avoid the very problem you are imagining this website has plaguing it.

    If you didn't manage to get all that,
