    VGC 2011 Analysis/Article Index

    This thread will be used to index reserved articles, please post here if you plan on reserving a Pokemon for an analysis or the creation of a general article so that we may index it and make it easier for future searching and categorizing.

    The analyses are categorized below as follows:

    RESERVED - The analysis has been reserved in the official reservations thread― that's to say, this thread ―and is hence marked down as that member's responsibility to complete.

    PLACEHOLDER - Having reserved an analysis, by placing a placeholder thread it is easier to keep track of reservations.

    SKELETON - You can choose to write a skeleton analysis first. This way, it is easier for others to comment on content, and if a set ends up being rejected, you do not lose valuable work. We highly recommend to use skeletons during the first stages of an analysis.

    WRITTEN - Feel free to write up your analyses formally once you believe you have enough knowledge and material to work with, and your thread will be given this tag. Please remember to keep to Smogon's official grammar standards and analysis format. However, we again recommend waiting until your thread has been fully approved by Quality Control before progressing onto this stage.

    QC APPROVED - Once your analysis is sufficiently detailed (it doesn't even have to be written, a skeleton will do) the Quality Control team will descend upon your analysis and after testing, will use their in-depth competitive knowledge to make your analysis as informative and accurate as possible. Please respect their judgment at all times. After it has been approved by two different Quality Control members, your analysis is ready to move on to the next stage.

    The Quality Control team for VGC 11 is as follows (feel free to PM them for a check-up):

    Official VGC Quality Control Members (open)
    Huy
    Kinneas
    Alaka
    Sixonesix
    Bianca222


    GP APPROVED - Once your analysis is approved by the Quality Control team, and you have finished writing it up, the final touch will be provided by the Grammar-Prose team, who will run through your analysis correcting anything out of place until even Tolstoy would be gobsmacked. Once your analysis has been checked by a minimum of two different Grammar-Prose team members, you can at last call your analysis 'finished'.

    Note: VGC analyses are not officially being GP checked at this time.

    The Grammar-Prose team is as follows (feel free to PM them for a check-up):

    Official GP Members (open)
    bojangles (Leader)
    Rising_Dusk (Co-leader)
    bugmaniacbob
    DJXO9
    Draco Zephyr
    Dr. Reid
    Dubulous
    Eo
    Fatecrashers
    Fizz
    Flora
    Great Sage
    jc104
    jumpluff
    Legacy Raider
    Snorlaxe
    uragg
    whistle
    Zystral


    FINISHED - Don't start looking too far ahead. Your analysis will likely not be going on-site for a while, until the site is ready to take them. Watch this space.

    Are you reading this thinking, "I want to do an analysis, but I don't know what Pokemon to do!" Well we're actually almost done, but there are still a few Pokemon up for grabs. Garbador hasn't been taken, its fairly bulky and could be interesting spamming Sludgewave with a team of Steel-types. Speaking of Steel-types, Klinkklang hasn't been taken, so you could try your hand at that. Finally, Watchog, Simisage, Stunfisk, and Swoobat haven't been taken, not really sure what use they could have, but why don't you figure it out!

    _________________________

    3 final words:

    - Those who wish to take over an analysis from another member, please PM the member in question first. There are many skeleton analyses within the index where the OP in question has no intention of continuing with their analysis. In this case, you should first PM them and get their permission before re-reserving the thread. If they do not respond to your message, PM a C&C moderator, but do not post in this thread.

    - Those who wish to give up a reservation, please either PM me or post here to make the vacancy known. This is particularly directed at badgeholders who wrote the original 5th generation analyses, as they were neither asked nor expected to write formal analyses afterwards. However, this also applies to those who wish to unreserve an analysis after this post. I have no way of knowing whether a posted skeleton is actually a reservation, nor which analyses you wish to keep and which you are willing to give up, so please let me know in good time.

    - Please understand that a reservation is expected to be a commitment to seeing the analysis through to the end. It's always deeply annoying when somebody does nothing about an analysis for ages and clogs up the system. For this reason we suggest reserving no more than three analyses at any one time so that you are able to complete them in due course. If you are inactive for an extended period of time over your analysis, it may be removed from you by force, so please don't let it come to that.

    Shamelessly ripped off of bugmaniacbob.

    Reserving Roobushin. Hopefully after that I can do Emboar (Enbuoo w/e), but if someone else wants it I am not opposed.

    EDIT: Unreserving Roob, I'm just not experienced enough with him. Reserving Emboar for real now, though.

    reserving Roobushin

    EDIT: Okay, so after posting the analyses, destinybond complained about plagarism from his analyses due to two sentences being the exact same thing. This caused me to get my analysis taken down and got my third warning point, preventing me from posting a new thread with my new article, which destinybond has given me the okay on. Will put new Roobushin analyses on site @ Feb 28, when my 3rd ban point expires and I can make threads again.

    I saw this and literally the entire thing you 'wrote' was copied and pasted straight from skarmbliss. You just switched around sentences and a few words....

    This is simply not true. I touch upon various points that aren't even mentioned in the Skarmbliss analysis, I even use a different Set! Yes, the two analysis' have some similarities, but that is more of a matter of coincidence than plagarism. My analysis will be up tomorrow, you can discuss it then.
