So there have been a surge in:
Actual moveset questions (which are on the rise):

http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/192705/moveset-for-protean-greninja-that-yields-the-most-immunities

And
Asking for EV spreads:

My question is, what should be done with them? Seeing as they break amendment 1, paragraph 6 of the Database constitution, should we ignore these but flag/hide future questions of this kind, should we ignore future ones and leave these be as well or should we take a stance on our laws and stop these and future crimes if this kind?

P.S. There have also been a rise in questions with unclear names, should those be edited as well or is it best to just leave them be.

I've been hiding and rejecting every question related to specific sets that I see, and I agree, we've been seeing more of them lately. Those are all questions that can be answered by looking up the moveset pages. Others haven't though, judging by this. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But is it ok to answer them if they isn't hid or anything
^ Flag these kinds of questions so the editors/moderators are notified. That should go for any question you feel doesn't belong.
Ok but if there is a question like How do i teach Porygon Thunder or evolution questions im allowed to flag as they are very easy to find by searching

These should just be flagged until they are hidden.
