Or are submitters discouraged from that and should strive to make a movepool as neutral as possible, that could go with either a non-evolving or final evolution Pokemon?
It's not written anywhere that you can't influence the pre-evo vote through your movepool, but it's heavily frowned upon. Mainly because it encourages people to vote for the movepool they want based on flavour rather than, well, the inherent strengths of the movepool. So yes, I would very much encourage people to not attempt to add pre-evolution only moves or anything along those lines.
