    This poll will definitively decide the concept for CAP 1. Like last round, this will be a Bold Vote. The details of how a bold vote works can be found here: http://www.smogon.com/cap/process/process_rules . Please vote for one, and only once, concept. The two remaining concepts are:

    weather slayer is either going to be too specific and try to counter just one type of weather while tacking on specific little tools to help against others, or too broad and try to counter every type of weather at once and not really being a cohesive mon.

    A though decition, I will go with weather slayer as i feel Momentum is a too broad concept. Momentum can be achived in many ways which makes it seem to me it will be some trouble in making a direction.

    Main thing is that if the pokemons role itself is to gain moentum. Does that mean it should be able to gain momentum against every threat? Or would have have to tailor it to gain momentum against a few types of pokemon at a time. Or maybe it should only be able to gain momentum against some things.

    I'll admit im not a pokemon expert, momentum is a thing I can't quite put my finger on what it is exactly. But to always get momentum against anything seem a little powerfull maybe. I'm unsure how it all would work. But reason why i chose weather slayer over momentum was that i feel that weather slayer is a finished concept. While Momentum doesn't have much of a direction and would probably need more clarification before it's put to practice.

    But both are nice concepts.

    Edit:I edited most of the post so you know. Incase it causes confusion

    Best of luck, capefeather, and congratulations on making such a fantastic concept! I'm sure whichever concept we move forward with will turn out a kick-ass CAP and start off gen. V on a great note!

    And for clarification, "at any point in the match" meant that the CAP should be able to perform its role throughout the match (early, middle, late-game), not that it should be able to switch into any Pokemon and force it out. Yes, that second classification would probably make it uber, but that's not what I was going for (and I don't think there exists a Pokemon that can just switch into anything any time, nor could there be, imo).

    I think this will lead to a more interesting project and avoid a re-done piclowatt IMHO
