        Malaconda's movepool. I really like the moves you chose to include.

      I really want physical Aurumoth (DD or no) to be viable.
      1. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        There's nothing from stopping you from using DD Auru. It's just completely outclassed by QD Auru in basically every way possible. It's really difficult to make DD (or physical Auru) seem as viable because QD patches up Auru's lower SpD stat, Psyshock lets it act as a mixed attacker of sorts, and special Auru isn't worried about Intimidate.

        If you're talking about Updates...cbrevan is the UL for that, so I'll refer you to him. However, the short answer for the question is that we believed Aurumoth needed a nerf, so we didn't want to give it a bunch of buffs for its physical sets at the same time. It's the same reason we didn't take special coverage away. There was also no obligation to make physical equally as viable as special, by concept or by established metagame role.

      Hey, for Voodoom's movepool submissions, can we include pre-evolution-only moves? Usually that can't happen in CAP (since movepool poll is before evolutions poll & we don't want to pre-empt the later vote), but I'd like to take advantage of the opportunity here, if possible.
      1. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        It should hurt anything really as long as you don't go overboard with it. Were you wanting to put a move at Level 40 or something for Voodoll?
        Apr 9, 2017
      2. Buzzer_Error
        Buzzer_Error
        What I was thinking of doing is putting Nasty Plot, and a couple other moves like Tearful Look, as a level-up move for Voodoll but not Voodoom (much like Riolu and Pichu get Nasty Plot but their evolved forms don't). There's nothing to it but flavour interest - as far as I can tell it doesn't mess with Voodoom's sets in any way - but it just makes the movepool a little more distinctive.

        I don't intend to design Voodoll's whole movepool or anything, just specify a couple of moves that are in it.
        Apr 10, 2017
      3. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        Sure that's fine, just set it aside noticably at the end of the level-up movepool saying that Voodoll gets it at X level.

      When you say you allow Flash Cannon, do you mean it will be added to Doom, or just that you're allowing discussion?

        snake_rattler
        It'll probably be allowed on Voodoom, but I need to make sure with DK on some process details. I'll be back in town tonight so there will be an update to the thread.

      Does Voodoom have a competitively viable ability already?
      1. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        Lightning Rod would be its viable ability. Although it doesn't come into play that often, it's still an immunity that raises Special Attack, and it discourages the opponent from using Volt Switch.

      If Voodoom does not receive a third Ability from the poll, which of its existing Abilities becomes the Hidden?
      1. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        We'll probably discuss a flavor ability if No Change wins.

      Reviloja753
      Hey, so with abilities and such, one of the arguments for giving a non-competitive ability is that we are going to give it coverage, but I'm not sure. Could we maybe have a vote on whether to give it coverage moves or a competitive ability? It would make deciding what ability to give to Voodoom much easier IMO.
      1. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        You can argue a lesser ability if you want more coverage, but I won't slate anything that's excessive. I'm thinking Mold Breaker and Competitive won't make it to slate given how I feel this ability should play out.
        Mar 18, 2017
      2. Reviloja753
        Reviloja753
        I get Competitive not making it to slate, but I don't get Mold Breaker. Could you explain why Mold Breaker won't make it?
        Mar 18, 2017
      3. snake_rattler
        snake_rattler
        I'm not saying it won't make it quite yet, but Mold Breaker lets Voodoom break through Unaware Clefable and Unaware Arghonaut, two Pokemon that on PS! people have been talking about keeping as checks.
