    After much communal deliberation, discussion, blood, sweat, and tears, we finally are here selecting what is to become the defining concept art for CAP 2. This is the turning point of the CAP process where it goes from a numerical and conceptual being into something that we can see and personify with. Now we must choose what form we give to those numbers and words. The winner of this poll will be the art design for CAP 2. Good luck to the finalists; you're both winners in my book.

    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 author's name! The list of possible votes, in order of placement in the previous poll, is:
    Yilx
    Mos-Quitoxe
    CAP 2 thus far:
    Focus: Bulky Offense
    Typing: Grass / Ghost
    Stats: 64 HP / 120 Atk / 100 Def / 85 SpA / 120 SpD / 81 Spe
    Ability: No Competitive Ability
    Primary Checks: Heatran, Jirachi, Skarmory, Hydreigon

    tl;dr: Quack! (Why wasn't CAP 2 a duck again?)

    Not only is the design by Yilx fantastic, but it also actually looks like a Grass / Ghost Pokemon. The design by Mos-Quitoxe, cool as it may be (and it is very cool!), just doesn't fit this CAP because of how poorly it reflects the typing. Paper as dead plant matter is just too much of a stretch. It's creative, but there is such a thing as being too creative, so creative as to be abstruse, at least in my opinion.

    In my opinion it fits the stat spread a whole lot better and it's an awesome concept. As impressive as it is, I haven't been able to get into Yilx's design.

    Fantastic design. I don't think Mos-Quixote's design fits the Grass/Ghost typing as well as Yilx's design, but w/e. May the best one win.

    I don't think Mos-Quitoxes paper thing looks like a ghost type and definitely not a grass type.
    I think a pokémons typing should be clear from the design.
    Plus Yilx' design looks a little bit more awesome...

    And to everyone voting on typing, saying Yilx's looks more grass/ghost-y, I don't know what you're smoking. Neither looks all that much like the typing, but both are in the spirit of grass/ghost. Mos's is far more original and epic in my opinion. So he gets my vote. I do like Yilx's but just not as much.

    In my opinion, Yilx's looks too much like a Ghost-type Lilligant, while Mos-Quitoxe's is very original and different.

    Just blown away by the design tbh. Also I think it fits the typing and stats better.

    Awesome idea and concept by both of these guys. I just really like Mos's original idea and that a pokemon has NEVER looked like this before.
    Good luck to both of you
