    This thread will be used to organize the reservation and writing processes of UU analyses, and can also be used for general discussion and simple questions about handling UU analyses.

    Rules:

    1. Please don't start an analysis on a Pokemon that has already been started by someone else. I will let you guys know in this thread if a previously reserved analysis is up for grabs.

    2. Starting an analysis and then abandoning it is not recommended. You'll get a reminder about that specific analysis to be updated before someone else can take over.

    3. Please put your analysis into Skeleton format until QC have checked it over and approved it. This will make it easier for QC to look through the thread and see if you've missed anything. I will warn you about this, but if you are a repeat offender or ignore my warning, I will lock your thread.

    4. Do not plagiarize. This is a serious offense and upon discovery your thread will be locked and you will be heavily infracted

    5. When including images, if you are going to use XY sprites, please use locally hosted sprites instead of the ones at pkparaiso. Find out how by reading this thread

    6. Do not theorymon. All posts should be based off of experience in the UU metagame, and any posts that are not run the risk of being infracted.

    7. No shitty gimmicks. This will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, but QC will know it when they see it

    Make sure to read the rules of writing analyses before jumping in

    Tags:

    Tags are an organizational tool that can be edited into an original post to show which stage the analysis is at. Please use them so that QC can easily tell when you are ready for QC to check an analysis / which analyses they should check. Here are a list of all the available tags:

    [WIP] - Though WIP skeletons are not encouraged, if you must post one, use this tag so that QC will know that you are still working on it.
    [Skeleton] - When your skeleton is complete and ready for QC checks, use this tag and QC will be able to approve your skeleton if it is good.
    [Approved] - When your skeleton has been approved by QC and you are writing it up, change your tag to this.
    [Grammar] - Once you have completely written up your analysis, change to this tag so a Grammar NaziPatrol member can give your analysis a final check
    [Complete] - Use this tag once a QC member has checked your written analysis and approved it.
    [Available] - If you have abandoned your analysis, I will change the tag of your analysis to this one and either reassign it or put it back on the reservation list
    [Update] - If your analysis is out of date with the current metagame, I will change the tag of your analysis to this one and put it back on the reservation list.

    Current List of the UU QC:

    - @Epikhairz (Leader)
    - @somerandomguy
    - @Afro Smash
    - @Daybreak
    - @Windblown


    These are the people who go through each analysis and add suggestions to the analysis and inspect the overall quality of the analysis before it is official. You may politely argue with them if you don't agree with them, but in the end, they make the executive decisions regarding the content of analyses, so make sure you listen to them. If a member of the QC team is abusing their power, let me know and I will confront them about it. If you are interested in becoming a member of the UU QC team, contact me.

    With 5 QC members in the team, your skeleton needs at least three QC approvals before you begin to write it up. QC members must make it very clear when they are approving an analysis. When the analysis has been fully written up, a QC member will check grammar and whatnot and will give you one final QC approval before it is considered complete.

    If you feel that a Pokemon not on the reservation list deserves an analysis, you must make a case in this thread explaining why you feel this way, and QC will judge whether it deserves an analysis or not. If QC does not feel that a posted Pokemon analysis does not deserve an analysis, they may reject the analysis. Two rejects are required for an analysis to be locked. Any Pokemon that has been rejected by QC will be blacklisted from being reserved. However, if an analysis is rejected for poor quality, it will either be reassigned or put back onto the reservation list.

    Can I write an analysis on Aromatisse? I've never done one of these before but I'd like to try, and I've used it so I know what it's capable of.

    Why does Aromatisse deserve an analysis over other Pokemon? What niche does it fill in UU?

    It's a Wish passing Fairy with much more HP than Florges (who can also be a cleric), not to mention a better movepool, and can also function well in Trick Room?

    Sure, I dunno if that's merit enough, but it definitely has its uses?

    Granbull is a better physical wall while Florges is a better special wall. I guess what sets Aromattise apart from them is the ability to set up Trick Room as well as being a wish passer/cleric as well as a physical wall together, something neither of these two can boast about, the former lacking wish, the latter not having a good hp stat nor a defense stat to play a similar role.

    Ok then

    @atashimokawaii Feel free to put up a skeleton for the Aromatisse analysis. However, if QC doesn't think your analysis or Pokemon in question is up to standards, we will reject

    Added some stuff to the OP regarding tags, as well as making some criteria regarding QC checks (2 QC approvals are needed to begin writing btw)

    I'm also not particularly liking how there were literally no posts in this subforum while I was on vacation. If you have reserved an analysis, please at least try to put up a WIP skeleton as soon as possible. I will begin pestering people about analyses soon before I reassign some of them. QC (and others) should also try to get some feedback in now that a specific criteria regarding QC checks has been created; this is something I will be trying to do pretty soon.

    I was also on vacation this past week, will get started on the analysis this afternoon.

    EDIT: ok, got the skeleton up. Like I said, never done an analysis before so I'd like an ok with what I have before fleshing it out. Thanks.

    Just a reminder Epikhairz, the unreserved list is outdated. Pokes like Latias are now OU and Galvantula/Goodra etc. need to be added onto the list. But yeah hope this helped. :)

    Reserving Zapdos and Snorlax.

    Jirachi has been put back on the reservation list, due to Fiery Espeon neglecting his reservation.

    Let this be a warning to anyone who still has reserved analyses not yet posted to at least get a WIP skeleton up (yes finch that means u and the aggron analysis :] )

    I will start dropping reservations for other analyses soon as well if no skeleton is posted

    Chesnaught will be dropped and put back on the reservation list unless @Cobalt is able to put up at least a WIP Skeleton by midnight in Pacific Time (GMT -7)

    Next on the chopping block are Exploud by @Arceus_17 , Krookodile by @AmourShipper , and Escavalier by @The Dude , which I will give until Sunday to complete before I put them back on the reservation list as well, so get your shit done!

    The number of QC checks required for analyses in skeleton form will go up from 2/5 to 3/5, effective immediately. Any analysis already approved is exempt from this change, though all other authors should note this.

    Spiritomb should be added to the reservation list, its a great counter to Mega medicham, traps Victini and other pokes, gets 2 stab priority attacks, will-o-wisp and infiltrator. I don't see why it wouldn't be viable

    Zapdos is once again available for reservation, due to the OP seemingly abandoning it. If anyone wishes to complete it, please use the previous skeleton, as it has already recieved two QC checks, though you may add what you feel is missing or remove what is wrong or not needed, and make another post in the thread to let QC know if you have done that.
