I'm going to ask here because I can't seem to get my head around the new analyses revamp section... and where the heck the Torterra analysis went.

Was it ever done? Is there any way to get it?

I finally decided to pick up my game again and retrain all the starters for poops and laughter, aside from the awesome Infernape I built with Boltbeam and all those other people... like a year ago.

HALP!

This thing is seriously the shit. OHKO's Slowbro, Blissey, Umbreon, Shaymin, Suicune, most Gyarados builds, and literally almost every other OU tank. 3HKO's Skarmory.

Ignore Gameboy. While you were gone, Aldaron from Smogon; decided to help "revamp" the analysis' but he left halfassed during the revamp, and things went and died. But, if you need help, just ask. >_>

Why have all the analyses stopped? Couldn't we at least post the movesets and write up the actual analyses later?

By all means, go ahead. It just stopped because everyone died.

I don't have enough posts. /excuse

I'd also rather invest my effort developing new sets rather than copy paste the tried and true ones.

To be fair, the analyses don't need revamping anymore, they need rewriting. With the release of Platinum and the move tutors it introduced, as well as the current big shift in tiers, most of them are probably out of date now anyway.

I should just give my account info to Wiik23. I'd probably have more than enough by the end of the week.

Quiet you. It's Aldarons fault.

How about instead of placing the blame everywhere else, why don't YOU make a change yourself?

On this note, should the analyses be done for a Pokemon's tier, or for OU, or should the analysis writer decide this based on viability in other tiers?

I agree, Aldaron did have good plans for this site but, sadly, there weren't many people willing to put in the work required (myself included, Im ashamed to admit)

[QUOTE]On this note, should the analyses be done for a Pokemon's tier, or for OU, or should the analysis writer decide this based on viability in other tiers?[/QUOTE]

I would suggest that it should be mostly aimed at it's current tier. However, if you intend to use smogon's tier list, keep in mind the unstable state of the UU tier. I'm sure it would be very annoying to write an amazing analysis for an UU pokemon, only for it to be bumped to BL a few days later.

I also miss the glory days of TLF, when IRC was active with a lot of really cool people.

Do we have a list of all the move tutors for platinum as well as the changed level-up moves that some pokemon are getting? I'd gladly start contributing when I can again. Between work and all.

I don't mean to crash the party, but please make a new thread if you wish to discuss some of this other stuff. Please use this thread to discuss Torterra sets only.

Wow, I love it how there's a huge discussion about "ZOMFGG torterra" and then the conversation moves onto other analysises, and no comment is left on my orgasmic Torterra sweeper set :(
