    Here it is, the final competitive ability poll for this CAP!

    This will be a single bold vote. Make sure that you bold your vote 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 ability! The possible votes include:
    Ineffective Ability
    Infiltrator
    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 above.
    • Capitalization and spaces 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 options directly from the OP to your ballot as plain unbolded text. Delete and rearrange the options to suit your preference. 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.

    So yeah, please read the above. Moderating your posts over something so small is really lame, but we will if we have to.

    Below is CAP 5 so far:

    Typing: Grass / Dark
    Threats: Link
    Primary Ability: Harvest
    Stats: 115 HP / 100 Atk / 60 Def / 40 SpA / 130 SpD / 55 Spe

    I think Infiltrator's a fine choice, though. I'm glad it came down to these two options.

    To be honest, Infiltrator has such a small, niche effect I think it's comparable to IA. The only reason to vote for IA would be to then limit CAP5 to Harvest as its only ability.

    It has a very small niche for countering Dual Screens Lat@s/Espeon/Xatu. That is something, I suppose.
    I was all for Leaf Guard but I'm just glad it wasn't Water Veil. It didn't even make sense. It's a grass type...

    Yay, no Leaf Guard! I am now satisfied with the secondary ability.

    It's practically ineffective, but is 100% in line with our goals. Seems like the perfect choice to me.
