The last things that need to be decided are: Height, Weight, if and how many pre-evos, and if Shadow Strike needs a different name.

Other than that, we're done!

Good work guys, there were lots of ups and downs in this CaP but at least we got through!

For height and weight, nothing really matters, as this cap is immune to Low Kick and resistant to Grass Knot.

However, in proportion to something like Mightyena, I'd say something like 3'07" and 96 lbs would be somewhat reasonable.


As for Shadow Strike, I think the name is fine as is, but if need be, I don't care if you change it.
 
#5
Height: around 3 feet at the shoulders
Weight: around 600 lbs
Length: 4.5 meters or 15 feet

These dimensions are based around tiger measurements. I imaged being about the size of a big cat.
 
#6
Height - 2'11" at shoulder
Weight - 104 lbs.
Length - 4'3" from facemask to tail

One pre-evo would be appropriate.

Shadow Strike has grown on me. I'll stick with that name.
 
#7
Height shouldn't be over 4 feet. Ingame player is 4'8", I can't see it matching height with them. Under 3 and a half would be fine.

As for weight, I really don't care (immune to Low Kick and grass knot won't touch this thing). It's a ghost and steel which does make it tricky, but I think it should sway towards the light side as the sprite/art appear to have more ghostlike qualities than steel.

This things movepool starts off really poor and get progressively better, eventually becoming really good (meteor mash, shadow strike). As such, I don't think it should have any pre-evolutions. The level up list has makings of a base pokemon with no evolutionary line.

Shadow Strike is fine for the name.
 
#10
Shadow strike seems like a good name, the height should be no more than 4 feet an the weight no more than than 200 pounds. As for pre-evos I think that it should only have 1, and Kitsun sounds like a great name.
 
#11

Even the largest big cat (Tiger) is around three feet at the shoulders so that shouldn't be a problem, if you're assuming it's a canine/feline of any kind. They're mythical canines that are said to be as tall as cows, but people seem to don't care about those.

What I don't understand is why making so damn small? I personally look at CAP7 and say "tiger or cougar sized" rather than house cat sized. It's immune to one move and 4x resisted to another, being 300+ pounds isn't going to be a bad things.
 
#12
Well Mag, it wasn't that fun being ATL without doing anything, but nice job getting this done so quickly. Just because you beat darkie in speed doesn't mean you beat him in being a quality TL. =P

Well, we've got ourselves a nice Pokemon this time around. Great job everyone!

So we should be looking at the weights of pokemon based on creatures of a similar size to tigers in order to determine a suitable weight for Kitsunoh. Examples of such pokemon are ...

Under 3'5" is great. I'd just like to throw out the name Spectral Strike over Shadow Strike, because Kitsunoh's been advertised as a portal hopper in one of the supporting pieces.

Shadow Strike sounds like it would be a move from Pokemon XD, other than that it's ok I guess.

Edit Bojangles' name is pretty cool too.

Okay let me rephrase myself, why are we making this damn creature so relatively small in size and weight? It's already immune to Low Kick and 4x resisted to Grass Knot so being 150+ pounds wouldn't kill this creature any more than before. It's not like they're a rule stating all Pokemon must be smaller than the in-game trainer.
 
#18
3'07" and 96 lbs Plus's suggestion works for me
Spectral Strike iBojangles name too
and one pre-evo could be good

Well I have to say I like how this CAP turned out more than the last, and it was well moderated, good job Mag
 
#19
Well, my first CAP project here on Smogon. I have to say that it was a great time coming up with everything. As for height and weight, I'm guessing this thing is about the height of a panther/dog, so about 2'10" and 80 pounds works for me.

Spectral Strike does sound like a good name to me.

As for pre-evos, I feel that this guy only should have 1, since I can't see anything other than a baby kitten/puppy being a pre-evo.
 
#21
I honestly don't think it needs a pre-evo. But if people want one, then it would have one pre-evo, like Mightyena.

As for the height and weight, I'm thinking about 3'75" because it reminds me of Raikou, which is quite large. 264 pounds would be quite reasonable.

If I were to change the name "Shadow Strike", I'd probably go with Spectral Strike, what iBojangles said.

Considering the only moves Weight effects are Low Kick and Grass Knot, one of which this is immune to and the other it resists, it's not a huge issue for me.

I picture this as somewhere around Absol sized, maybe a little larger.

Height: 4'1
Weight: 112 lbs.
 
#23
There's a 12-character limit for move names, though, isn't there? So, there would definitely be reason to change the name of Shadow Strike, given that it's too long. Spectral Strike, unfortunately, is no better. Given it's pretty much a ghost-type Crush Claw, I would suggest something like Shadow Crush or Soul Crush or something like that.
