    This poll will be open for 24 hours starting from Deck_Knight's vote below (i.e. 12:17:33 a.m.).

    The Seven fought a brave and valiant battle. The ensuing clamor was epic to behold. Nothing in The Avengers could have compared to the glorious sight of these stat spread submitters. FlareBlitz used Flare Blitz, and Steamroll countered with Steamroller. Korski summoned a vast armada of ships out of nowhere (turns out he was lying about dropping his Admiral rank) and pummeled Rising_Dusk with cannon fire, but the Golden Scizor bravely beat back the assault with his shining armor. Meanwhile, Scoopapa scooped up all of the ammunition he could and hurled it at the others. srk1214 rushed to the scene and started slapping everyone with his infamous 1214 Slaps technique. As the fight went on, bugmaniacbob, who had secretly been spamming Fury Cutter on capefeather's not-slated remains, went on a killing spree. However, he had become so blind with rage that he knew not whom he was killing, nor did he know which, if any, of his blows were even successful.

    Now, three remain. Who will come out on top in this bone-chilling battle of numbers?

    This is a single bold vote, which means you vote for one entry. Make sure that you bold your votes and nothing else! A typical vote might look like the following:

    If you want even more clarification, we hope that this will satiate your appetite for text.

    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!

    The options:

    Rising_Dusk
    Korski
    Scoopapa

    No contest at all as far as I'm concerned. It's the tankiest submission, and it's special attack stat isn't ridiculous.

    As I said before, 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. This is the most important thing we could walk away from this spread with, next to that being enough power to punch through very bulky Pokemon like Politoed and Jellicent. Good luck to all of the entries either way, though! It's always a pleasure surviving the first poll; that is enough to remind me that I've succeeded. Cheers.

    Scoopapa FTW!

    I've already listed my reasons for choosing Scoopapa, but in a nut shell:

    Decent Attack provides for a bit of unpredictability, and I like the bulkiness of it.

    I like how well-tuned his Speed stat is; it's interesting how positive base 77 outspeeds neutral CAP3, but neutral base 100's are outsped by positive nature. I think the whole "Outspeeds Heatran" thing could be fixed by narrowing its movepool a bit (ie: Don't include Earth Power)

    I'm happy to have made it past the first round and I think these are all good spreads!

    While I do agree with Dusk that 76 speed is certainly a better number than Korski's 89, I truly believe that everything else about Korski's spread is superior.
