Our Pokemon so far: Type: Electric / Dragon Style Bias: Somewhat Defensive Build Bias: Mixed, possibly Special This poll determines the desired overall "power level" of the pokemon's base stats. In the past, the Base Stat Total (BST) was used to measure the power of base statistics. Since BST is a very poor measurement for stat power, the CAP project now uses Base Stats Rating (BSR) to determine the overall effectiveness of a pokemon's base stats. Polling is simpler, and the results are more useful. The Base Stats Rating is determined by a formula created by X-Act. Information about the formula is located here. A utility for calculating Stat Rating is located here.
