    "Lead"-ing the New Generation!

    I feel with weather in a sort of flux right now, it doesn't really make sense to base a CAPmon around weather that might not even be there by the time CAP1 sees the light of day. Momentum feels far far too vague as a concept. Where would we go once we decide on it. It doesn't really give us a direction at all. No hint at what typing should be, nor physical/special bias. Basically, the concept just says "make a good Pokémon." The lead option is my favorite. There's no denying that the lead metagame has changed drastically from Gen IV to Gen V. It's to the point that when I see an Aerodactyl lead, I know the battle is going to be easy because my opponent doesn't have much experience with the new generation. Anyway, I think we stand to learn a lot about the lead meta AND explore exactly how Team Preview influences lead choices (if you use CAP1 on your team, will you ever choose to lead with something else if the opponent is packing a counter?).

    obviously

    But I wouldn't mind any of these three, as is reflected by my vote in the first poll.

    much more interesting as a concept, sounds like it could be fun to make, and you'd learn a lot from it
    not that it wouldn't be the same for the other ones just this particular concept more so than the others.
