    Huh, this didn't happen yet. Anyway, this poll's purpose is to decide by vote whether the moves marked as Controversial in the Attacking Moves Discussion thread will be allowed for Malaconda's movepool (whoa man, alliteration). The linked thread contains the discussion that led to what we are doing now, and my last post on that thread provides a summary of what the stakes are (or, at least, what I read them to be). Note that while disallowed moves will not be allowed in any movepool submission, allowed moves will not necessarily make it to the winning movepool.

    The controversial moves we will be voting on are listed below. Spell the move and its qualifying allow/disallow as you see it below when posting. Do not vote to both allow and disallow the same move, as that is nonsensical and will result in your vote being deleted.

    This poll operates on the multiple bold voting standard, which is detailed here. Make sure to bold your votes and nothing else and spell them correctly. A vote looks like this:
    CAP uses automated scripts to count votes. For this reason, it is very important for all ballots to be submitted correctly. If you do not compose a legal ballot, your post will be subject to moderation.
    • The scripts count bold words in ballots, so do NOT bold anything in your ballot other than the options you are voting for.
    • Only one option per line.
    • Spelling of options must be EXACTLY correct and must match the spelling listed in this post.
    • Capitalization, spaces, and non-letters are ignored by the vote counting scripts, but you probably should not depend on it.
    • Do not bold portions of words separately. For example, the following BBCode: [NOPARSE]Pikachu[/NOPARSE] will appear like this: Pikachu. That looks like a single bold word, but it isn't. It's two bolded character strings right next to each other. Please don't do this, because it is VERY HARD for mods to find ballots with errors like this.
    Composing a proper ballot is easy. Just copy/paste the names you like directly from the OP to your ballot as plain unbolded text. Select all the options as a group, and wrap it in bold tags. Boom, you're done. If you type out the options manually and bold them individually and make a spelling or formatting mistake, it is your own fault.

    Kind of iffy on U-Turn, but I think it isn't really necessary to the concept and, really, do we need another momentum-grabbing CAP?

    Yes, Unoriginal Name, we need another momentum CAP, as momentum is central to Sun teams.

    Neither of these is going to break Malaconda - but although I'll be in favour of baton pass, I don't think it needs to go around breaking balloons with U-Turn; Heatran for hard counter.

    Yeah I think Malaconda needs these really bad to conserve momentum.

    Ice Fang wouldn't be awful, but its really unneeded, and I don't like to give coverage for its own sake.
