    Welp, Cawmodore is all done! As the CAP Policy Review Committee works on updating some of our official CAP policy to Generation 6, we'll have the potential opportunity to create some pre-evolutions for CAP6. 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 starting from this post.

    You may only vote for one option. The list of possible votes is as follows:

    None
    One
    Two


    Note: If as a community, we do decide to create pre-evolution(s) for CAP 6, a leader for that process will be determined after this vote.

    Considering our similarities to Skarmory, I do not think Caw should have a Prevo.

    It's a sailor boss, so my logic tells me that it needs a stepping stone to get to become a fearless, respectful sailor. Also, it looks very similar to Honchkrow, which has one prevo

    Yeah it's my logic I hope that made sense

    I'm pretty opposed to one because of Honchkrow's line, and I think our pre-evos could be adorable enough that none doesn't make any sense. Let's dream big.

    This thing has WAAAY too many similarities to skarmory /honchkrow so doing so makes it different

    I think this thing deserves a pre-evo. But based on the look of it I wouldn't think it would have more than one.

    I feel Cawm has many similarities with the empoleon family tree , they both start as marine pokemon and then develop a steel nature.

    Although I wouldn't be opposed to an evolution chain along the lines of swabby > oarsman/lookout > captain.

    At first I was thinking one, but then it dawned on me that this guy has a lot of flavour potential - two'd be great. Furthermore, the novelty of X/Y is wearing off a bit, and it's not like the prevos require a playtest or anything that requires us to go backwards in particular. More artists are available, with the exception of those working on the PS! sprites [and that's mostly the sprite artists, though they do sometimes overlap], and as such, we'll get some good ideas and entries, I'm sure of it.
