The latest issue of Smogon's web-zine, The Smog #24, has been released! We're hoping to make this our best year yet, and we're off to a strong start.
Perhaps you'll be able to find something new to check out with the new year's first issue? We've got a well-balanced issue featuring articles on a number of interesting things going on around Smogon, and hopefully some will catch your eye! kokoloko's first installment of Underused 101 features a detailed, well-explained guide to UU teambuilding and threats that should get you off to a good start in the metagame, while some authors have put together a set of articles on the emerging and fast-paced Smogon Doubles metagame designed to get you integrated. On a different note, if you're looking for a truly unique and creative strategic challenge and would like to socialize with other Smogoners, the History of Smogon Pathfinder might be for you! Our recurring and much-loved mainstay Smeargle's Studio Update is here to keep you updated on what our thriving and talented artist community is up to, and just as the fifth BW CAP commences, Deck Knight has written CAP Policy Review: Getting the Bugs Out of Our System to examine the numerous radical policy shifts the project has recently experienced following its fourth iteration.
Generation VI is approaching, and this year will only get more exciting as more news, more users, and more hype start to flood in! We'll be with you all the way, and we appreciate your continued readership. As always, we'd love to help new contributors get involved, so why not stop on by our Article Approvals subforum and apply with your article ideas sooner rather than later? Either way, enjoy! ~jumpluff
