    This is the poll where we vote on Mollux's third ability (including whether it should even have one) based purely on flavor reasoning, in a way that doesn't significantly alter the competitive aspects of CAP 3. The TL has determined four abilities negligibly competitive and fitting enough on the art design to be put up for a vote in this poll. Also, since verbatim apparently likes to give me ideas ;) :

    Recall that this poll operates on IRV voting, the details of which are outlined here. Be aware that order does matter in your votes! 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. 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 ignite a discussion. Keep discussion to #cap.

    This poll will be open for 24 hours starting from this post.

    When voting, use only the ability's name! The list of possible votes are:

    No Tertiary Ability
    Hustle
    Klutz
    Poison Touch
    Stall

    No Tertiary Ability means exactly that: CAP 3 would have just Dry Skin and Illuminate, as was chosen before.

    Mollux so far:

    I'm sad to see absent from the slate some other well-supported and very flavorful abilities, like Liquid Ooze, Gluttony, and Sniper. However, I do appreciate the explanation given that this third flavor ability should be one with drawbacks, so as not to outclasses Illuminate. Given that rationale, the absence of those ability is certainly understandable.

    Fun fact, for the longest time we had Poison Touch written as "Poisoned Drink" on Pokemon Showdown (only on Seismitoad for some reason).

    On a less serious note, the log didn't explain anything about the picture in the OP. either that, or I'm not smart enough to understand the rationale behind it.
