In order to make all of our analyses more consistent across generations, the formatting for analyses has changed slightly to make things easier for everybody.

Below is the current format on an empty analysis using the current Abomasnow on the Dex, please update all current analysis in QC/GP to the current format, or change them upon uploading, otherwise your analysis cannot be cached through the CMS.

6th Gen:

[OVERVIEW]

Generalize what the Pokemon does in the metagame and as a whole and why you should or shouldn't consider using it on your teams.

[SET]
name: Barack Aboma (Swords Dance)
move 1: Swords Dance
move 2: Wood Hammer / Seed Bomb
move 3: Ice Shard
move 4: Earthquake
item: Abomasite
ability: Soundproof
nature: Adamant
evs: 76 HP / 252 Atk / 180 Spe

[SET COMMENTS]

Set Details
========

Describe the other aspects of the set such as what the EVs do and nature/item.

[STRATEGY COMMENTS]

Does the "ivs:" tag still go after the "evs:" tag?

Speaking of which, why isn't there a tag for IVs on the Dex?

More flags more fun
Now that showdown shows pre mega abilities even when it mega evolved does that mean all the mega analysis will get the imports changed to have them mega evolved. If you don't understand what I am saying here is an example
Old

Altaria @ Altarianite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Return
- Earthquake
- Roost

Would be new

Altaria-Mega @ Altarianite
Ability: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Return
- Earthquake
- Roost

I don't see a reason to change it tbh since the old way of doing it still works just fine
 
Could one of the blank lines before "[STRATEGY COMMENTS]" be removed in the OP's template? It's pretty much always caught and removed during the GP process so I'm assuming it's not supposed to be there. It just seems like a newbie trap for those that copy and paste it, rather than the one in Post #2.

p2 edito: good call, done :toast:
