    Hello and welcome! We're moving into the stat poll of CAP 3, which will certainly define how this Pokemon functions within OU.

    Please remember that this poll operates on IRV voting, the details of which are outlined here. This means that you can upvote your favorite typing and downvote your least favorite. Be aware that order does matter in your votes! The first line is your favorite, the last line is your least favorite. Make sure that you bold your votes and nothing else! A typical vote might look like the following:

    Please post only your votes in this thread. If you are feeling the need to have a discussion, then head on over to #cap. There are consequences if you are looking to spark a discussion here. Again, please leave all discussion to #cap. Thanks for your understanding!

    This poll will be open for 24 hours. Deck Knight will edit his slate into this post when the time limit for Stat Submissions is complete.

    The options:

    srk1214
    FlareBlitz
    Rising_Dusk
    Scoopapa
    bugmaniacbob
    Steamroll
    Korski

    CAP 3 is looking like this at the moment:

    Concept: Extreme Makeover: Typing Edition (open)



    Typing: Fire / Poison
    Abilities: Dry Skin / ??? / (???)

    Based on a sum-of-squares comparison with my spread's stat ratings :P (Actually it "sums up" my preferences quite well. I would prefer not to go for a relatively slow, low-offense angle to the extent of some of these submissions. Did people look at zomg STAB Fire and not realize that it does nothing for coverage moves?)

    The are the only two I like at all other than mine. Speaking of which, it'd be nice to know why mine wasn't slated if that's not too much trouble. I got some good responses to it after people got past their initial knee-jerks to the high SpD, and I think it was pretty distinctly different from the other submissions. I'm not bitter about it not getting slated, I'd just like to know what your reasoning was.

    I voted based on a few things. First of all, 76 base Speed is an absolutely critical number for our CAP to maximize its EV'd Speed without ever allowing it to beat out the likes of offensive Heatran. You'll notice that I voted based on how close a spread is to 76 Speed in the first few (FlareBlitz I downvoted because I think it's marginally stronger than CAP 3 needs to be). scoopapa's spread is decent, but lacks a bit of punch and has a bit more special bulk than I think is warranted. I think srk's is way too bulky in general (really, 60/140/120 is nearly as specially bulky as Necturna was, and almost twice as physically bulky). After that, I think Korski's gets the wrong idea by being way too fast and not strong enough to punch through bulky Water-types, and bugmaniacbob's is just outlandish with being so slow, so bulky, and mixed offensively. I don't think that's what we should have here.

    Overall, a pretty good slate. May the best spread win!

    Basically these are the spreads that don't have that high offensive stats, which I dislike for this CAP. I'd like it to depend more on its bulk and resistances rather than attacking.

    Let's actually counter the bulky water-types we're targeting. Trying to reshape the weather paradigm can come later.
