    Hello! Now we're moving into one of the most important polls of CAP. Through this series of polls, we'll be deciding on the typing of CAP4. I hope you understand the gravity of this poll; movepools, abilities, and even stats will all be altered by what we choose here. Pick wisely.

    Typing Polls are run with 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 you vote properly. 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 may be warned. You are allowed to say whatever you like in relation to your vote at the bottom of your post, but please do not look to begin a discussion. Keep those comments to #cap on IRC.

    This poll will be open for 24 hours.

    When voting, use only the typing! The list of possible votes include:

    Bug/Dragon
    Bug/Psychic
    Electric/Psychic
    Grass/Flying

    Make sure there are no spaces in between your slashes for dual types.

    Below is CAP 4 so far:

    I really like the way that Bug/Psychic interacts with the environment, its team, and other such things. It is risky to switch in without being reliant on weather control or other such things. Bug/Dragon is a close second because, while riskier, it has the potential to make for a more interesting and informative CAP. Grass/Flying… you may be wondering why I slated this, and it's purely because it's a typing I am very interested in and think could possibly have quite a few applications, which I'd like to see more of. As far as Electric/Psychic is concerned, I have no reason to keep it off the slate, so it might as well be there for variety. There is nothing particularly about it that interests me, to be honest, but it still suits our purposes very well indeed.

    Now, go forth and vote.

    these are not subliminal messages at all (open)

    Maybe I just like the idea of a bug dragon? I think I'm mostly swayed by the potential for risky outrages and draco meteors.

    On the other hand, I like the idea of psychic, but I guess I'm just convinced of the offensive prowess of Bug/Psychic--I feel a lot of the metagame would resist too much of what it could do.

    Not enough room to add Bug/Ground, which would've been also awesome, but I like these options so much that, whichever wins, it'll be good (although... Grass/Flying? Kind of random last minute addition, it seems). Bug/Dragon slightly lower but I'm sure enough people liking it will vote it up anyway.

    For everybody who hasn't looked at the typing discussion, please do so before voting. I really don't want this to become the Bug/Dragonbandwagon thread.

    I am absolutely convinced that we will get the best results with Bug/Dragon.

    Oh hey, since this apparently needs to be emphazied...

    DO NOT USE BOLD IN ANYTHING OTHER THAN YOUR VOTES

    It is written directly in the original post and applies to every single voting stage of CAP. It messes with the voting system. Your entire ballot will be deleted if you don't follow this rule; thank you. Please read the rules before voting since they are imperative to how CAP is run.
