    I voted once again for the ultimate scout. It has a much more different approach than the other concepts we've made so far. It should be an interesting learning experience.

    Voted anti-stall mainly because I love Offensive teams and stall kills them.

    Voted Partner In Crime. Would be cool to get a Yanmega Partner, or something like that.

    Voted Ultimate Scout, I think it would benefit the metagame the most.

    Voted Ultimate Scout, information has always been an important to a good pokemon battle, so I am really interested in seeing how a pokemon dedicated to the concept will affect battles.

    Backing Partner In Crime, because I think we could learn a lot (and it has the flexibility to back almost any kind of playstyle. Offense, defense, support, etc.) on how combinations work, and how they can benefit the Pokemon being partnered.

    Mag, for your concept, wouldn't we need to have another thread to discuss what Pokemon we are going to be helping and partnering up with? Also, will the Pokemon have to be a CAP?

    Yes, there would be a thread for that purpose.

    No. It will not have to be a CAP.

    If you've been paying attention, Sikh, you'd know that there is a concept assessment stage where your concerns would be addressed.

    Voted for Partner in Crime.
    It would be the most benifical to the meatgame because it would proabaly be very helpful in breaking stall. The Anti-Stall pokemon would be too focused on it's goal and would almost never do anything else do to a restricted stall-breaking movepool and/or stats. The parasite idea is just plain stupid because there are much better things the community can do with a CAP. The Suicide Hotline is already acomplished by Weavile (counter/fake out), ice shard, pursuit and taunt). The Ultimate Scout and Great Tank are my second and third options.

    Based on the amount of stall I've seen used, I think Anti-Stall is the best way to go, though the Great Tank would've been my second choice.

    Voted suicide hotline. The parasite idea seems good, but I'm worried it'll turn into a grass/fighting or bug/fighting and this become compared to breeloom and heracross.

    Voted Anti-stall to nicely balance out the CAP metagame.

    I still don't understand the point of partner in crime; I don't see what meaningful combination will come from it (by which I mean lasting, I have a feeling it will just end up gyara-vire with a sub-par pokemon at the end of it)
    and I doubt anyone would agree on which pokemon to partner it with without a poll.

    voted parasite again. This thing has potential to annoy and be a serious threat. I like that, like it a lot.
