    Main Pokemon Information:
    Name: Pyroak
    Type: Fire/Grass
    Stat Spread: 120 HP / 70 Atk / 105 Def / 95 SpA / 90 SpD / 60 Speed
    BST: 540
    Ability #1: Rock Head
    Ability #2: Battle Armor

    Pokedex Information:
    Height: 6' 9"
    Weight: 370

    Dex Entry #1: The smoke from PYROAK's flames is said to have soothing qualities. However, it is also known to induce odd behaviour in Pokémon and humans alike.

    Dex Entry #2: All PYROAK keep the same set of armor throughout their entire life. It is said the age of any PYROAK can be estimated by counting the rings in the wood.

    Dex Entry #3: PYROAK are known to engage in ceremonial duels banning use of their cannons. Their armour protects them from injuring themselves when charging one another.

    Closing Statement:
    Well the Pokemon known as Pyroak is like 99% complete and is ready to be use on Shoddy. Most of what you see here is what you get, minus any minor things and a pre-evolution(s) or two that managed to sneak in. Being Topic Leader was both fun and tiring at times. After taking on this role for awhile it gave me a newfound respect towards past topic leaders as well as moderators like. My only regret is the fact that this project was processing too slowly for everyone’s liking and had too many bold polls. Future topic leaders will learn from this and fix it with their decisions making skills.

    Two preevolutions FTW.

    I believe I saw a great pic with a possible evolution chain made by elagune on the art selection poll. That being said, I am all for it.

    Nice job with Pyroak, Gothic Togekiss. You have had to deal with more adversity than any previous TL. This project was the guinea pig for many new concepts and procedures. I think you did a nice job of keeping your wits about you and kept moving forward. Thank you for your contribution to the CAP project.

    If you are interested in logging on the CAP server, I'll be happy to give you dibs on the first official battle with Pyroak.

    lol GT we made it take so long. We kept interrupting your polls with process issues that we forgot to resolve.

    Anyways, I definitely enjoy being a contributer to this more than leading it. Way too much work... Thanks GT for giving me a chance to have fun again.

    Maybe since we all decided that giving it a strong bp ground type move would make it too powerful....

    btw Snorlax doesn't get Slack Off and that is what he does... so even when a move fits a pokemon perfectly that doesn't mean they have to have it.

    I think the reason why Snorlax can't Slack Off is because it will probably end up falling to sleep ;x

    Slack off implies one is being lazy and...well slacking off. Snorlax is the sleeping pokemon. If one is already asleep, then how can one slack off?

    People said that earthquake was too powerful of a move for this thing to have, so no Earthquake in it's movepool. I do agree though that it make no sense from an appearance point of view but I went with what the masses said.

    All I have to say is Good Job organizing this CAP! You did a great job, but to future CAP leaders, do not do so many Bold Polls because it slows the process down quite a bit. I have only one question. When is Pyroak gonna be able to be used on Shoddy??

    this CAP project went slower than syclant and revenankh by far.
    anyways, for the next CAP project, i think we should do a fire/ghost.. i have a great idea for it.

    Syclant probably, but I think Revenankh was something like 11 weeks. This was 6. As for Fire/Ghost... not likely. That'd be reusing the two main types from the last two projects, which has very little chance of happening.

    It's not set in stone. A concept discussion will occur before the main typing poll, in which a concept is decided on. More than likely it'll end up being weather, but there's a chance it won't (especially if we can't get any concrete data on how powerful the weather is...).


    As for the poll at hand, I voted 2 pre-evo, since Elagune (I feel I keep misspelling your name, sorry) already made art for two. Not that that means we have to use them, but why not since it makes no actual difference overall?

    There we go. I believe that somebody may have put in a few very well-done names and suggestions a couple threads ago.

    Anyway, I have to congratulate GT for putting up with all our bullshit so far. Ajob very well-done, and I think clear to everybody that the quality of the work has gone way up (and I'm not just talking about artwork and sprites).

    It's also lead to some fundamental changes in the CAP, such as the deciding on the theme before anything else, which is most definitely a positive thing.

    I can't get over seeing Flamaple as flam apple. If you're merging two words at a consonant directly followed by a single vowel, most people will read it as a short vowel. If you want a long vowel, you'll probably need two vowels in a row (if Pyroak were spelled Pyrok, I'd probably pronounce it as Pie-Rock).

    I think we can say "Pyroak refuses to hurt the environment and so he will not quake the Earth..." rofl, but a valid reason. Anyways, good job on this CAP, I'm looking forward to the next one.

    It does have Leech Seed. In fact, Leech Seed was never up for dispute.

    Final Suggestion: Please give it Solar Beam, a pokemon with his typing was made for Solar Beam on a Sunny Day Team!

    P.S. Final evo picture Totally reminds me of Grovyle+Infernape, which is totally cool.

    That is odd. Why isn't Solar Beam on it's TM list? I'm pretty sure there was no dispute towards it.

    As for Close Combat, we're not going to just arbitrarily add moves to it, especially really powerful ones like that when others like Brick Break barely made it.

    Sorry, my bad. I didn't know nor noticed Solarbeam was missing from the TM list until now.
