    And now for the moment you've all been waiting for: the final typing poll of CAP 2. The winner of this poll will be the typing that we follow all the way to the end with CAP 2, for better or worse. Choose wisely, and remember that every vote counts! Make sure you think it over sufficiently before casting your ballot!

    Recall that this poll is a bold vote poll, the details of which are outlined here. A typical vote might look like the following:
    Please post only your votes in this thread. Do not respond to other posts, or your posts will be moderated and you warned. If you feel compelled to say something in your own vote, you may still do so, but don't try to incite a discussion. Keep discussion to #cap.

    This poll will be open for 24 hours.

    When voting, use only the typing and mind the order of the types! The list of possible votes in order of placement in the last poll are:
    Poison / Dragon
    Grass / Ghost
    I explained why I liked Grass / Ghost and Poison / Dragon in this post really well for the voters' reference.

    Below is CAP 2 so far:
    Focus: Bulky Offense

    May the best typing win!

    Nothing about Ghost or Grass promotes a decent offense. We may not have stats locked down, but we might as well start the push for our objective here.

    No contest. At this point, I feel like Poison / Dragon is taking the easy way out. It's too good, and I don't think that we're going to be able to learn nearly as much about the Sketch Artist concept with it.

    Remember that making this thing a standard bulky attacker build does not necessarily mean that it'll tell us anything at all about Sketch. Which is kind of the point.

    So, let's be creative.

    EDIT: And seriously where the heck did all these Poison/Dragon voters come from all of a sudden

    Giving Shell Smash or V-Create/Sacred Fire to a Dragon. What a novel idea.

    I was really for Poison as a defensive type, but I just don't see any redeeming qualities for Dragon as the offensive type. Guess Jack-O-Lantern it is.

    Let's lure all the mons, and take them out with a Sketch'd move, depending on the team's needs. This is just one more rule CAP2 could fill if it was this type.

    I just want to remind some people that the STAB options in general, I mean look what could happen. If we decide to make the Poison/ Dragon Special oriented it will be able to have Spacial Rend, a strong, reliable special dragon attack that will completely decimate the metagame, good stats or no. If we decide to go physical, we are choosing to have Outrage, need I say more? But, if we decide to go Grass / Ghost, we have a decent but not overpowered attacking type in Grass, with Power Whip, or Woodhammer, much less with Special attacking options like Seed Flare, which is a little overpowered, but I think that if we nerf his Special Attack to the point where it doesn't matter, it won't be much of a big deal.

    Either would be good. I get the feeling Grass / Ghost will win by miles at this rate.
