This is our Pokémon:
Hyra because of Special defense and HP along with a speed over 100.
Voted for me, the best way to take down Zapdos imo is through speed. If you outspeed it, you can potentially kill it before it kills you.
Time Mage because of the HP raise and the lower speed.
Went with myself again. In my belief, my spread is more beneficial towards the concept of decentralizer than everyone else. It's not to say it's the best, but it's pretty darn good. I won't complain if I suddenly lose to Time Mage. His and mine spread are very similar to it wouldn't be a total lost if mine didn't make it.
Went for GT.
Voted for gothic togekiss, in my opinion is the best 'decentralizer'.
I'm surprised I made it to the next round.
Went with myself once again.
I think my spread is useful because it is powerful yet balanced both offensively and defensively. The high HP score lets you be creative with its defenses, allowing it to take a severe beating from one side of the spectrum while still having a respectable 'other' defensive stat because of the great HP. Offensively, it has acceptable mixed sweeping stats, and a speed that can allow it to outspeed a lot of opposing threats (300 speed with +ve nature and 252 EVs - just like Hitmonlee).
Voted for myself again, but I'd like to note that, like Gothic Togekiss said in the last poll about mine (edit: and now in this one too, thanks GT), I won't be too upset if his spread wins: we both have similar views about what CAP6 should have in terms of stats, after all. I think that my approach is better, but it isn't a whole lot better.
Voted for Time Mage for all of the above reasons and because it was very close to mine =]
Voted for Hyra because its fast and can take Zapdos's special attacks well with that Sp. Defense
I still like Hyra's the most.
I voted Gothic Togekiss, although I also really liked Legacy Raider's.
Went with Legacy Raider. His spread was closest to mine in style, though I of course still prefer my own work.
I was gonna vote LR or Hyra, but Hyra has the best chance of winning, so I voted Hyra...I have to admit I'm a bit disappointed with the way the polls are headed this time ?_?
By voting Gothic Togekiss or TimeMage you are basically getting a slightly improved Poliwrath. That is not imo what was set out to be accomplished.
VOTE LEGACY RAIDER or Tennisace for more versatility.
Unless you want a suped up Poliwrath...
It makes me sad to see this =(. There are so many great spreads here that it must be difficult to choose one to vote for.
Voted Time Mage, but won't be disappointed if GT wins.
Voted for Legacy Raider (actually meant to vote for tennisace but oh well)
I'm not really seeing what makes GT's spread so great tbh
Voted Legacy Raider, its defensive stats arn't as high but the HP is irresistible, Legacy Raider's and Time Mage's are definately my preferred spreads.
And what make LR's spread any better than the rest of them? Personally, having high HP doesn't necessarily means you're more bulkier than the rest of the spreads.
To be honest, each and every spread being voted on have something another spread doesn't. It could be better speed, HP, offensive strength, whatever. Each one of them have a fair shot at winning this so don't believe it's not over yet. Let's not turn it into a hate feast or a "Who's the better" contest because we don't know who's actually the best anyway.
I went with GT's. I don't care all that much about the Speed and I like how it isn't offensively retarded with 110 Attack. The calcs made me feel very confident about it.
I'm guessing only the first paragraph was directed at me, well obviously I didn't just vote on HP or I would have picked Tennisace. It's bulkyness probabley rounds out close to yours, with your base defenses being higher. Since none of the spreads were what I had in mind (I guess I had more of a Great Tank Of China perspective).
I found that I liked LR's balance of Speed, attack, Sp. Def and HP. I could've only wished for higher defense.
In reality, I don't know how much the "decentralizer" is going to decentralize compared to recentralize but I think all the stats have something unique to offer (as you said) and they all cause many problems for the top 5-10 and other pokes.
