Out of date features: Swagger is banned from ubers too. Crazy-Prepared: Smogon will tell you how to survive a Life Orb Modest Porygon-Z's Nasty Plotted Adaptability Tri Attack. - Due to the update of the smogdex, this links makes no sense.

Slightly subtle changes: Under House Rules, it makes it appear as if sleep clause is more important in gen V than in gen 1. In all honestly, gen 1>gen 5>2,3, and 4; I can explain it in detail, but that bit is written in a way that makes slightly incorrect implications. Lethal Joke Character - Whilst true it was usable in gen 5 ou/ubers, as far as I'm aware it's currently considered unviable in both of the XY equivalents. Lemony Narrator - http://www.smogon.com/dex/dp/pokemon/spinda is worth mentioning too.

Noteworthy addition: Mega Beedrill is a fantastic example of a glass cannon, worthwhile of inclusion upon ORAS's release.

I feel like tropes related to specific mons are unnecessary (due to the nature of the Metagame constantly changing and turning every trope into a Long List) and should be removed or rewritten to be less specific; it just feels sloppy to me. I'm mostly talking about Took a Level in Badass and Awesome but Impractical.

Oh, also, the Overshadowed by Awesome page needs a cleanup.

Is it worth suggesting giving the "Overshadowed by Awesome" trope its own sub-page? The list goes on for quite a bit, and there's plenty of more examples.

Seems reasonable to me.

Whoever created the page didn't capitalize the "by" and "awesome" parts of the trope name, making it look like one word: Overshadowedbyawesome. It works fine otherwise, but can someone fix it so it doesn't look like one word anymore?

No, that is an artifact of our parser; specifically, The Problem with Pen Island. See: Overshadowed Bya We Some is the same page as Overshadowed by Awesome.

Also, I can't see this problem.

Smogon got hacked; should that be on the page? It's also affecting other sites (thankfully NOT Bulbapedia, yet), so these things could become an issue, although not to us, besides all the link issues that arise.
