Posted on Dec 28, 2012 04:25AM

The latest issue of Smogon's web-zine, The Smog #23, has been released! Thanks to ToastPlusOne and Setsuna, the main page and magazine as a whole have received a lot of lovely visual enhancements, so make sure to check those out.

The last issue of 2012 features nearly 40 articles, covering every metagame and almost every activity and section of the community, as well as including a host of entertainment articles to amuse you these holidays. We have a truly diverse community, and this issue displays it in full glory, with the latest on everything everywhere. A highlight article for you all is Smogon 2012 in a Nutshell, a summary of the busy year Smogon University has had. In keeping with the season, we've featured plenty of wintry content, such as Weather Analysis: Hail, Unopened Christmas Gifts: NU Ice-types, and PokéTour: Snowpoint City. Lastly, we're running our annual Smog Awards, so make sure to recognise this year's standout users!

Say farewell to 2012 and get excited about 2013 with the latest issue of The Smog, and let us know what you think in the forum thread! A feedback poll will be coming soon, as well as new information on how to get involved. We hope you'll all be inspired to try something new in 2013, whether that be the projects, metagames, and playstyles we've written about, or even The Smog itself! ~jumpluff
