We should look at this CAP in a different way than we do other CAPs. If you read the description again, the CAP is supposed to "take that "terrible typing", and find ways to fix it (usually via ability, movepool, or stats) to the point where the formerly terrible typing becomes the CAP's strong point". This should open up for some interesting conversation, since we are supposed to be learning from this CAP. I propose that we switch around the typings. (Have the fire typing be the defensive pivot and the poison typing be the offensive pivot). We can do this in a variety of ways. One way is to give it only very weak (or risky), but useful Fire STABs like Magma Storm, Flame Charge, or even just ember. But we could give it the stats so that the types that the pokemon Fire resists (scizor, heatran, etc.) are taken out by this CAP. Alternatively, we can give CAP 3 the strongest poison type moves and give it the support moves to back up the usual counters.
This may seem difficult, but I believe we can get really far with this. It would be great to see fire/poison type take out heatran, tenta, jellicent but not be able to take out ferrothorn or other mons that it should easily be able to take out. THis is just a thought that came to me, but it could turn out to be the most unique and individual mon we come up with and the mon we learn the most from.
