Lots of good stuff

We've added the recent ORAS information a whole month before it was expected! Currently all move and stat information is what has been found in the demo. Graphics will be updated frequently between now and the games' full release, and by then these updates will also be applied to tier ladders.

The finals of PSPL II are here! Italiano take on Wifi to decide the winner of what's been a really successful and enjoyable tournament.
