    The Next Generation of Quality Control

    At the beginning of a generation, C&C always has issues dealing with the influx of new users, and often it means that we overcompensate for some of those issues.

    ATTENTION: Analysis Format Changes (Name your sets, don't separate Mega Evos, use the old set style)
