The concept for CAP 1 is Momentum, submitted by Admiral_Korski. This concept raises some extremely important questions for us to address in this thread. How we answer these questions will fundamentally set the stage for all the decisions we make in the later stages. Here are some of the major questions: What is momentum? How can we define it? How does a player gain or lose momentum over the course of a match? What sort of Pokemon tend to shift the momentum of a match? Which currently existing Pokemon do so the best? Keep in mind that having momentum is not the same as winning. We COULD fulfill this concept by simply creating an overwhelming threat with good typing and overwhelming offensive stats like Shaymin-s or Dialga with Levitate, but doing so would not teach us much. Finally, be aware that poll jumping will be taken very seriously in this thread. Don't do it. Try not to use comments like "this Pokemon has to have U-turn!" Instead, discuss how Pokemon gain or give up momentum, and how they do so. This thread will likely remain open for 48 hours due to the sheer importance of this discussion, though it may close sooner if we reach consensus on the important issues.
