Implemented with zystral's latest suggestion.
Incorrect. Here, "while" is not the correct word choice, "whereas" is the one you're looking for. You are being presented with a choice. "while", along with "since" should strictly only be used for chronological purposes. For contrasts / differing choices, use "whereas", "although," and "but".We are still missing the "while" vs "and" discussion, which I will illustrate with a small example.
Move 1: Flamethrower / Hidden Power Ice
Flamethrower hits Steel-types hard, while Hidden Power Ice deals with those pesky 4x weak Dragons.
Only use "while" to indicate something happening at the same time or contrast. Basically, would it make sense if you replaced "while" with "whereas"? If not, don't use it.
- Notice here there is an option: both moves are not used on the same set.
While and whereas are interchangeable in that example though; while can also be used for contrasts / choices according do Google / Wiki / dictionary entries.Incorrect.

"while", along with "since" should strictly only be used for chronological purposes. For contrasts / differing choices, use "whereas", "although," and "but".
In short; whenever you are planning to use the word "while", replace that with the phrase "but in this period of time," and see if what you're saying still makes sense.
While on this subject; there is no difference between while and whilst. They are semantically the same and are interchangeable. Don't be a bundle of sticks.
so I think probably no hyphen.Also, regarding super effective, I'd say that it may or may not be hyphenated depending on the context. If used as an adjective before a noun e.g "super-effective moves" I would generally prefer to see it hyphenated. This is generally the case when using two words together as an adjective. Basically, you should change the rule to "super effective is not capitalised".
Note, however, that if one of the words is an adverb, it should never be hyphenated. "Offensively-oriented" is an extremely common error that I think should be added to the op.
Part of the reasoning for not using a hyphen after “-ly” adverbs is that, appearing before a verb as it does, an “-ly” adverb is obviously attached to it, so no confusion is possible. As The Chicago Manual of Style says: “Compounds formed by an adverb ending in ly plus an adjective or participle (such as largely irrelevant or smartly dressed) are not hyphenated either before or after a noun, since ambiguity is virtually impossible. (The ly ending with adverbs signals to the reader that the next word will be another modifier, not a noun.)”
“Many style books recommend against the hyphen after adverbs ending in ‘ly,’ and I followed the rule blindly for years before the reasoning behind it became clear to me one day: adverbs ending in ‘ly’ always modify the word immediately following them, so they don’t require a hyphen to indicate which word they modify (‘neatly dressed woman,’ ‘hastily prepared remarks,’ ‘readily available materials’).
“But in sentences with compound adjectives, the first adjective sometimes modifies the next word and sometimes modifies a later word. For example, in ‘small college professor’ the word ‘small’ might modify ‘college’ but it could also modify ‘professor.’ If the former is true, adding a hyphen after ‘small’ makes the meaning clear.”
This is from the Victini research thread. It might be good to get visual confirmation, but if this is true V-Create should be removed fromV-create's spelling has been changed to "V-Create". The waitress in Le Wow talks about a chef using it to prepare deserts after you get three stars and then an additional perfect.
- The following applies for the capitalization of specific moves:
- Abilities or attacks that consist of two words but that fit the 12-letter restriction (Sunny Day, Zen Headbutt, Mold Breaker, etc.) are written with a space in between and with both words having an initial capital letter.
- All attacks having a dash (Wake-Up Slap, X-Scissor, etc.) are written with the word after the dash also capitalized. U-turn and V-create are the only exceptions to this rule.
Looking back at page three of the fifth gen thread, it looks like people decided things like Volt Switcher at the very least sounded worse than Volt Switch user, and you should use the latter. Makes sense to me.Is "volt switcher" or "u-turner" an accepted term or should it stick as "x user"?
