Congratulations to Mossy Sandwich umbry and Queen of Bean for earning the Community Contributor Badge as well as Melt Gibson and Easter Bliss for earning the Ladybug badge. We've all seen your amazing contributions since the start of the generation and are grateful that you all are part of our community. We hope to see you all stick around for the coming changes with Pokemon Home!

Lastly, we have some council shakeups. umbry and KM have chosen to step down from the council for the time being even though they actually stepped down like a month ago. We all give you a huge thanks for your time and support navigating these past two generations and wish the best for the future. As for council additions, hariyana grande has been added to the UU council. If you haven't said your congratulations yet, be sure to do so!
