Unit 48 makes Electric Chair for 3 damage.

1. should be AN elictiric chair, has always bugged me that the announcers won't say an in front of a vowel.

2. the moves name is electric chair drop

mayby I'm just picky...

Electric chair and electric chair drop are 2 diffenrent moves. Electric chair you get the opponent sitted on your shoulders and you drop on your back. Electric chair drop his the move Edge does, instead of falling on your back you slam him face first while sitting down.

Back brain kick is the English translation for enzuigiri. It's the same move.

$addme = "";
($movename =~ /{aeiou}.*/) && ($addme = "n");
replace the {} with square brackets ... I don't know how to do square bracket in PLITMcode

will solve most problems
but something like
The Armenian Beast makes an USSR will still be wrong

To solve that one you need a hell of a lot of code

main problem is, the above code adds quite a bit of processing to an already stressed server and will need to be run for every single move.

It's either that or maintain a DB entry for every move
The 150(?) standard moves aren't a problem but the ~10000 specials are ... that's 10000 times 1 byte of DB space you loose (or more, depending on which DB is being used)

I dont think there's a "good" solution to this one

It may not be an actually solution but what about this...Ignore it?

or you can make the move name "an electric chair" and the announcers say **** makes "an electric chair"/"a bear hug"/ "an ankle lock"/ect.

I don't know html so it may just be me dreaming...

then you'd get The Armenian beast makes a an Electric Chair
since the first "a" is added by the system

btw, I write webtools for a living and you'd be surprised how often people bitch about a thing like that

or stuff like "you have 1 messages"

they absolutely demand that the last s is dropped

I ment remove "a" from the system

moves that need an a have the a in front of their names moves that need an an have the an in front of their names. I hope I wasn't confusing...

the actual name of the move would have the a or an in it, the announcers would only say * makes "a big boot/an ankle lock" (""'s indicate move name)
