    Both of them are great, I just happen to prefer Motor Drive a little bit more.

    Intimidate is great, but I just love that Motor Drive takes away a weakness.

    I really really like Motor Drive in theory, but I think that the hardest part about this CAP will be setting up, and Intimidate helps force a switch in many more situations than MD, we can fix the Speed issue though stats or movepool.

    Simple math IMO. Both of CAP6's weaknesses are predominantly specially based (Fire/Electric), and I'd really like to remove one at least. And I also don't like the fact that it is prone to BOTH status conditions that hinder it's primary BD sweep, Burn and Paralysis, especially since Steel/Flying doesn't have any decent prio beside BP.
