in other words, flavor is important but takes a backseat – exactly what people have been saying. CAP has never been afraid to break all semblance of flavor in order to make CAP reach its competitive ends (Hi featherdance Kitsunoh! Hi ALL OF KRILL!) but that doesn't mean we ever INTEND to not make the most fitting, flavorful pokemon we can. And the second CAP decides to put flavor over competitive reasoning, I will whip out the mission statement again to try and fight it tooth and nail.
