    Two concepts remain for voting. This poll will be a single bold vote, which means that you vote for only one of the submissions. The details of bold voting can be found here. A typical vote might look like the following:

    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, or to the voices in your head.

    IMPORTANT: When voting, use only the name of the author! The list of possible votes includes:
    capefeather
    Birkal
    This poll will be open for 24 hours. The concept submissions are quoted below in order of submission.

    DO IT!

    No more love. Only sorrow. But seriously, good luck, Birkal!

    This one is a toss up for me. Both are wonderful concepts and I would be happy with either one.

    Sad that my top favorites didn't make it, but oh well. Capefeather's seems much more interesting then Birkal's (sorry Birkal)

    I do take a lot of risks when I play as well, so I would love to see how this will turn out.

    Both are fine concepts, but I prefer Birkal's concept's direction more

    It's funny, I voted Birkal higher than capefeather in the first poll.

    Both excellent concepts, at any rate.

    capefeather's concept intrigues me more, but designing a pokemon on taking risks all the time seems, well, risky. It could work, but it might not. Specifically it's movepool. What would it consist of? Inaccurate moves?

    However, Birkal's Perfect Nemises seems to almost take a backward approach to pokemon-building. Instead of countering something, we would instead making a mon for the sole purpose of being countered by something else. How would the movepool and ability be tailor-made to be countered by a lesser-used mon? Even then, it might not work. Look at Terrakion.
    Got doubts about both of these.
