Alright- though i am ecstatic you used my idea for a fighting ghost phys sweeper, i am pretty much let down that 1) you didnt ask my permission or give me recognition whatsoever in the planning process 2) nobody waited for me to submit what i actualy wanted it to look like before making a poll and 3) you had a vote on what its purpose would be when i clearly stated what it should do, after lots of careful study of weaknesses, resistances, and gaps in the OU metagame that needed to be filled (and how). I posted this already and it was SHUT down by mods who said not to post it again - thats wrong to do before hearing my case for why it should be this way. I really dont know what to do since you already had people do so much work on something i had planned out forever and wouldnt have brought up if you were just gonna turn it into a contest. We do not need another tank like dusknoir. The original purpose was to make a fighting ghost about as fast as starmie (making it countered by lesser used weak but speedy sweepers and support sweepers like weavile, starmie, alakazam, and crobat - which need some lovin), that would be able to counter 1) blissey 2) cresselia 3) snorlax 4) weezing 5) tyranitar 6) gengar and 7) swampert from the physical end using its ability to always score a neutral hit with fighting and ghost stab. The animation below was my original idea for look (the above drawing was done later by a friend of mine- she has an eye for style) This thing is like phys sweeper version of starmie meets gengar meets hitmonlee / chan The name i came up with was "caecus" using an archaic play on words with the latin root for blindness.
"Caecus" the blind fighter
pearl pokedex entry rough draft : It opens the eye on its chest once a year to fill its flask with souls.
diamond pokedex rough draft: this near blind pokemon uses its eye to see the souls of potential challengers
example moves : brick break, will-o-wisp, toxic, pursuit (leveling up), protect AND detect (this was my cost for no attack powerups- which trust me WOULD make it overpowered), mach punch, double kick (lvl 1 from move tutor even though it has no legs lol- maybe same move with new name but this would absolutely counter tyranboah for once), shadow claw, shadow sneak, zen headbutt or psycho cut i cant decide (leveling up), cross poison (lvl 1 move tutor), seed bomb (sounds weird but its necesary), drain punch, stone edge, and either knock off or rapid spin (make them breeder moves but you cant have both on same one) No elemental punches as they would make it seriously overpowered and be a clone of dusknoir. No powerups
ability - pressure
defense - 85
Sp. attack - 75
Sp. defense - 60
speed - 115
that girl helped me out with a bit of color down below. The late nighter is turning into a good one (friends have helped me on AIM). I hope you all give a good thought or two to the work here. thanks- matt (and friends)
