Gen VIII PU C&C Index
If you are new to C&C and analysis writing standards, look over these threads before posting:

Welcome to the official Sword & Shield PU analysis Reservation thread. Here, you may reserve analyses for Pokemon that you are knowledgeable about and wish to contribute an analysis for.

All analyses must be approved by the PU Quality Control Team

Forum Moderators


Reservation Rules
  • Anyone is able to reserve up to three Pokemon at a time and a fourth may be reserved as well, but only until the analyses reserved prior are quality control ready first. Badgeholders and QC members can reserve more if they wish (five being the maximum amount).
  • Once you figure out which Pokemon you want to reserve, post in this thread. Under the circumstances that the index isn't updated, be sure to pay attention to recent posts to see what's taken.
  • Do not edit your posts if you wish to uphold your reservation or reserve an additional Pokemon.
  • Wait for approval before posting your analysis. A moderator will edit your post with approval.
  • This should be common sense, but only reserve a Pokemon if you have a good amount of knowledge about it and experience with the metagame. If you aren't sure what set something is supposed to run, please check with QC beforehand.
  • If a Pokemon is not on the reservation list and you strongly believe it deserves an PU analysis, post in the analysis discussion thread with a thorough explanation as to why and the QC team will address it.
  • Lastly, don't post a WIP thread without a sample set listed at the very least.
Analysis Thread Tags
When you post your thread, be sure to use the appropriate tags for each stage of the analysis:

[WIP] - Work in Progress: The analysis is incomplete and is not ready for the QC Team to evaluate. Keep in mind that the longer your analysis stays in WIP stage, the greater the chance of it being reassigned. Please avoid making comments in these threads until they are ready unless it's something very important. Try not to post these threads till they have some info, even if it is just the sets. Once the analysis is ready for the QC team to evaluate, move to the Quality Control stage.

[Quality Control] - Quality Control Ready: In the thread title, include [QC 0/2]. The analysis is complete in prose form (not bullet points) and now needs to seek approval by the QC team. Make sure you update the thread title with the number of QC checks you currently have. Once you receive one check from the QC team, update the thread title to include [QC 1/2]. After implementing two checks, move to the Copyediting stage.

[Copyediting] - Grammar-Prose Ready: In the set title, include [GP 0/2]. The three required QC approvals have been met. The Grammar-Prose team now takes over. When you are ready for GP to check your analysis, please post in the Grammar-Prose Queue with a link to your analysis.

[Done] - After the analysis gets two GP stamp, the analysis is ready for upload.

**Update your thread's tags and stamp number as you move along the process.

Reservation List
  • After reserving a Pokemon, you must post your analysis in a timely fashion. Your analysis thread must out of WIP in 2 days (48 hours) or it will be reassigned. If you have any extenuating circumstances that prevent you from getting up your thread within this time frame, notify any of the listed moderators above and we may issue an extension.
Pokemon analyses will be categorized under the following headings:
  • Unreserved: The Pokemon has yet to be claimed by someone.
  • Reserved: The Pokemon is claimed by someone.
  • Completed: The Pokemon's analysis is uploaded

  • Don't take something if you haven't had enough experience with it, it's really obvious to see who hasn't used their Pokemon. We will reassign any analysis we don't see high enough quality
  • Before you reserve something, check the posts above yours as the OP may not be updated
  • Make sure you have the ability to complete your analysis in a timely manner before taking it on. If it takes too long, it may be reassigned
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to ask any of the Quality Control members or the leaders themselves!

Quick announcement, any high priority analyses requested by non-qc members needs approval from either MZ or myself. Also A- rank Pokemon will now be deemed as low for anyone to take.
