So we could just go with no secondary ability altogether.... Just throwing that out there also.
To respond to the first section, we actually aren't working off of the normal CAP process. Instead, we are using the pre-evolution standards
, which dictates that we focus first and foremost on flavor. I do understand your point of not getting behind Swarm though from your previous paragraph, so you're fine!
And that was a bloop on my part; no secondary ability would certainly be added to the secondary ability poll. My bad.
