The reason that I can't agree with this is because we move on to further parts of the process directly after the selection of what is called the primary ability. If we took care of all
of the abilities first (or at least until we decided no more competitively relevant abilities) and then
moved on to stats, that would be different. The fact of the matter is, though, that we had a discussion about stat limits and then voted on a stat spread all with only one ability, Dry Skin, in mind. Indeed, to go through those parts of the process with any further abilities in mind would unquestionably be poll-jumping. If we want CAPs in the future to have a chance a multiple competitively relevant abilities like this, then it needs to get taken care of before we more on to other parts of the process, because at this point, the process dictates that it's too late to go back and revise the stats based on the presence of a new competitively relevant ability. This is a process issue.
