This concept is tricky when discussing threats, because of the nature of its typing. If we go physical, we will have one set of counters/checks and if we go special we'll have another set.
What if CAP4 had a mixed potential? I envision it being able to hit hard (maybe with some set up) from both sides of the spectrum, albeit not at once. It would help fulfill the risk/reward concept because it would not be able to have both options on the same set without running into some coverage issues. I think it would be cool to run the Bug/Psychic/Fighting coverage but still have counters based on which stat it's using or boosting.
