    It seems there were only two typings that the vast majority of people wanted to discuss! Thus, this poll will be a simple matter of yes or no. Necturna's pre-evo will be a Grass type, but will it also be a Ghost-type?

    This will be a single bold vote poll. Your options are to vote Yes (to Ghost secondary type) or No (just have mono-Grass). This will probably be easier on everyone trying to count. A typical post might look like this:

    Note that any posts that do not contain a vote will be moderated and the poster warned. If you feel compelled to say something in your own vote, you may do so, but please don't try to incite a discussion here. Keep discussion to the IRC channel, #cap.

    This poll will be open for 24 hours. The CAP 2 final product can be seen here.

    I'd prefer to follow in the footsteps of cutemons Cacnea and Shroomish. Mono-Grass all the way for me!

    CAP 2, like Chandelure and Jellicent, should absolutely keep its Ghost typing in its pre-evolution. Not only does the resulting pre-evo end up a lot more interesting than mono-Grass, it also actually has theoretical use in a magical CAP LC metagame where it would be fun to try.

    People have made several good arguments for why this should remain Grass / Ghost, but I believe that going mono-Grass will allow more creativity in the design process, as we would have to come up with a way for mini-Necturna to evolve into a Ghost-type. Additionally, though this is likely just me being a poor artist, I would worry that we would end up with a Grass / Ghost design that either barely looked like Necturna or would resemble her too much.

    However, this will honestly be a good choice either way.

    We can still make Ghost-types cute, can't we? Think of Shuppet and Misdreavus, two adorable Ghost-type Pokémon.
