    I feel like I should give you a review of this issue.

    Cover: Great, nice colors, the only thing that could have made it better would be if Ryan's Image was colored via photoshop or something, even though it is great in details (good job Ryan, 5 stars!)

    The first article didn't really consern me, but it is useful and informative, good job!

    The egg article was impressive, but the two colored eggs gave me an idea/suggestion.... why don't "we" make the eggs on the forum colored opr striped or soemthing, again, very useful and flows neatly.

    Stantler article was great, and again useful... but there were two things that I felt were wrong. 1: the pic of the pokemon wearing a hat sort of blocked some of the words (minor mistake I suppose), but it's nothing that would ruin the quality of the article, but it does disrupt the flow... 2: I feel like you should add a battle video that shows examples of how the pokemon works, or the pokemon with one of the listed strategies being used.

    interview and battle following it was seemingly perfect, I will not bother looking for any miniscule,(excuse me) microscopic, glitches. I really like how the interview is followed by a battle against the interviewed member and also the commentary makes to battle more interesting than just watching it with background music.

    In the end, the farming recap was good, it would be nice to relate it back to the egg article in some way, but other than that it was good.

    overall, nice appearence and flow, but it does have a couple of miniature errors that bearly backfire in simple short lived sparks (in other words, nothing serious)

    good job to everyone.

    Great issue, with good content. I really like the Pokemon Guide or Pokemon of the month thing, but I agree with Vasden, A demonstrative battle would add so much. Nice choice of backrounds and colors, I liked the deep red backround most, plus it made the words easy to read. The pages still appear blurry at points, near the end there was a point were part of one page was blurry and the rest was not? Weird. . . Good job guys, keep 'em coming.
    0_0 soon.

    As the author of the Pokemon of the Month, I'm sorry I couldn't provide a video as I don't have WiFi connection currently. I could possibly try using it on Pokemon Online, but it wouldn't be as nice a video :/

    I agree with Vasden's fairly in-depth response, and I also liked the red background the best. I liked reading the Stantler article, but alas, I am not learned in the terms of battling so some of it was lost on me. heh. Other than that I found it well-presented and explained.

    There were a few minor spelling/grammar errors in the Tapatalk section, but that was also intriguing. When I was reading that article the screenshot on the left page and the words next to it threw me off a bit; possibly because it went so low on the page? Initially my eyes read 'Find it on the app store' as part of the previous paragraph, which also confused me visually.

    Other than that, nice issue once again!

    I liked it! Especially the part with the forum eggs. The eggs really caught my eye so good choice! On the tapatalk section I think hassle was spelled wrong. It was spelled hastle.
    I'm creepy. :P

    Ok, because I'm so nice I've done a few changes to the TapaTalk feature which should make it flow better and I've moved the pictures so they don't make folk feel physically sick when reading...

    And lastly, I've also added an amazing picture from @@Krispy: which can be found on the last page.
