    This is the last of the movepool polls, and will serve to finally decide which movepool we'll be using for CAP 2! I have created a spreadsheet that compares all of the remaining movepools. Please look at the spreadsheet to determine which competitive movepool you like the most. Look at the final submission posts linked to below to read more about the flavor of the movepools, including the details of the method to get Sketch. Note that at the bottom of the above spreadsheet I have provided official tallies of moves/VGMs and the method by which the movepool obtains Sketch. This is for the voters' communal convenience, and I hope it is useful.

    I have listed every remaining submission's author below in the order they placed in the last poll. I have also provided a link next to their names that goes to their movepool submission post, but please don't include this arrow in your vote.

    Quoted because it still rings true in this final poll. To be totally fair to both sides, though, I'd be happy with either movepool in the end.

    The major differences I took into consideration in choosing between the two are the following:
    • capefeather has Night Shade, Haze, Moonlight and Destiny Bond.
    • Deck Knight has Super Fang, Gravity, Ingrain and Pain Split.

    Night Shade may be a very good reason to vote for cape, seeing that it allows support sets to deal consistent damage even without offensive investments. However Super Fang somehow makes up for it, stripping off 50% of an opponent's HP.

    Gravity may encourage Necturna to sketch moves of low accuracy, thus increasing diversity in Sketch use. Ingrain makes Sketch'd Baton Pass a great option.

    Pain Split > Moonlight. It may be powerful with such a low HP stat. But Moonlight discourages Sketching a reliable recovery move, seeing how, as someone before pointed out, Politoed and Tyranitar would not want to switch into Necturna. Most often than not, it recovers 50% HP, 67% in sun even.

    For reasons so similar to zyr (on MOST count) I won't bother writing 300 words.

    My second choice in the first poll. Deck Knight has simply funner and more diverse tools like gravity/destiny bond/thunder fang. I honestly can't see the hype of Night shade, it seems like an absolute waste on Necturna.
