Also, I feel the Contest Moves list for RS should be edited to make it clear when a move Startles/makes Nervous only one Mon or all of them. Here's a quick list to show what I mean.

Some moves specify what Pokemon are affected:

|Earth Power| Smart | +1 | -3 |
Startles Pokemon that performed directly before User.

| Extrasensory | Cool | +1 | -4 |
Startles the Pokemon that appealed directly before user.

| Earthquake | Tough | +1 | -3 |
Startles all the Pokemon that appealed before user.

Then there are the moves that are vague:

| Encore | Cute | +2 | 0 |
Makes the Pokemon after user Nervous.

See the problem? Encore doesn't specify exactly which Pokemon after the user are made Nervous; is it all of them, or the one directly under? Moves like Encore should be edited to specify exactly which Mon are targeted, because otherwise it can get confusing.
I always thought Encore was only the Pokemon directly after the user, but every time I use that move in a contest I always end up arguing with the judge over how it's supposed to work, and they always use it on all the Pokemon.

@Eeveedude- Yeah, that +6 thing threw me off when I went to take my judge quiz. *coughcough* DG please look at it it's been like three weeks *cough cough*
