    Though to be honest any of these would be good. They all have something to tell us, I feel, in different ways. Even if it's only "ugh we shouldn't have done that".

    Korski's because the pro-QD camp is the underdog at the moment, and we all love a close race.

    [Anti-QD rant goes here]
    In all seriousness though, good luck Deck and Korski. Both of their movepools are finely crafted, even if I don't agree with everything in them.

    I would really like to have voted for jas61292, too, but only one can be on my ballot. Some might be wondering why I'm preferring the two extremes at this juncture over the middle ground (with respect to Quiver Dance), when playing middle ground is what got me the two other wins. I just think that Korski and jas61292 have both made great movepools this time around, supported by realistic and honest competitive reasoning, including reasoning that actually distinguishes them from other submissions instead of saying a lot of stuff that the other submissions implicitly agreed with, anyway. Both of them completely deserve this, and it's about time one of them won a movepool poll in Gen V. Plus, Aurumoth deserves Tail Glow >:(

    Deck Knight's one is really, really nice to my eyes too, but in the end opted for including Quiver Dance, since I liked that move from the beginning. Anyway, I'm fine with any of the three, good luck!

    Korski why not.

    As much as I didn't want the poll to come down to a single move, if it had to be any move, it might as well be Quiver Dance. Also, it's nice when movepool polls can be decided on competitive AND flavor grounds, since most of the time the submissions are indistinguishable from one another, competitively.

    And don't think you've snuck your Lucario-Illusion plan past everyone, Deck...

    GL to all, in everything.

    Korski for the win! Seriously though, Quiver Dance is the deciding factor in this poll for me.

    Aurumoth needs QD, and Korski's flavor is cool too.
