    Hiya! We'll be voting on the typing of CAP5 in the following series of polls. The result of these threads will have a significant influence on how the rest of the process operates, so choose 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:

    Electric/Dark
    Electric/Grass
    Grass/Dark
    Grass/Dragon
    Grass/Fighting

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

    Below is CAP 5 so far:

    I really like the potential for both Electric and Dark types here. Both together would be great, though either of the other typings with one of the two would still be fantastic.

    I fear what lies ahead if we lack a Water-type resistance.

    That silly wombat Deck Knight, how dare he make it Grass/Dark instead of Dark/Grass.

    I'm fine with all the first three typings, not-so-much with the fourth, but it's still workable, and absolutely don't want the fifth, it just looks worse than everything else by a fairly large margin.

    Since I'm not really much of an expert at the actual playing aspect, my stance is that these three would be much better design-wise than the other typing choices. I've really wanted to design an Elec/Dark 'mon for a while, and now I have a chance to do it!

    Lol at the people who think that Grass/Dark can make for an effective pivot, and lol at the people who think Sun teams will be able to stack on Grass-types with lots of same weaknesses.
