    The choices for this poll were very difficult to make, there were many excellent submissions, and some of those not included will likely go on to meet success in future CAPs! However, these concepts are not only coherent and well-thought out, they fit my vision of a CAP that actively explores an underexplored aspect of the competitive metagame.

    As a reminder, we are now using instant runoff voting, the details of which can be found here: http://www.smogon.com/cap/process/process_rules . This means that this poll will select three concepts, which will then be further narrowed down to one by means of a bold vote. You may vote for as many concepts as you like in this poll, in order of preference. A typical vote might look like:

    Please post only your votes in this thread, this is not a discussion thread. If you wish to discuss the vote, I encourage you to do so on #cap on IRC.

    Here are the concepts to be voted on, in the order they were posted:

    This poll will close in 24 hours. Choose carefully!

    Hmmm, dissapointing I didn't get through. Oh well, there's some good stuff here. My ballot:

    Admiral_Korski's Momentum
    capefeather's Weather Slayer
    DarkSlay's "Lead"-ing a New Generation


    As a note to anyone posting: The time for debate is over.

    Simply post up your ballots in this thread. If you want to discuss something do it in #cap.

    I will be on the lookout for attempts to bandwagon support, and I WILL FIND YOU.


    Incidentally I will also be tabulating the results in an Excel spreadsheet. I will post it at the close of the poll.

    I think something new like a Doubles CAP would be a nice way to kick off Gen 5. Korski's concept is great in general, Stall really needs a boost, and weather could use a good slaying. My two cents (if that).

    (My third would be the Lead concept, even though I dislike the lead metagame)

    There were a lot of good concepts floating around. It was hard to choose, but I think these would be the most interesting to watch.

    I think that the Momentum concept is a really great idea, as it's very conceptual and will probably teach us the most about the metagame. But the prospect of having a pokemon with forecast (or having Blubburn) is too great to pass up.

    I just wanted to add that the other concepts are related to playstyles that I don't enjoy playing and that's why I didn't vote for them. They're very good, though! It's just a preference...
