    Alright, moving right along!

    So I basically decided that the top 10 names that weren't totally outlandish would get slated. Since names are majorly a flavor aspect of the CAP, I think names that aren't totally out there or basically a clone of another name should get a chance to shine in front of the community. This also works really well with an IRV vote setup, so yeah! I didn't want the slate to be too large, however, otherwise the winners are decided by too few votes to be very representative. Also remember that you had to have Final Submission in the post for it to be considered.

    Lastly, some submissions I didn't include because I thought they were way too close to the following Pokemon:

    • Chikorita
    • Cubchoo
    The slated submissions are as follows:
    This is an IRV poll, which means that you can vote for as many entries as you want to in order of preference. The top three from this poll will move onto the next stage. I've reiterated some rules for this vote below so that everyone knows exactly what's going on.

    • Do not bold any text other than your votes.
      The script we use to count the votes looks at bolded text, and ignores all other text. You can still write other non-bolded things in your post, but don't bold them or it will mess up your vote.
    • One vote per line.
      Do not list multiple votes on one line.
    • You may vote for as many names as you want.
    • Spell the name exactly as it is spelled above.
      It is not case sensitive, but please remember that your vote will not count unless it is the name is spelled correctly.
    I've included the 10 name posts I slated in the order they were submitted below. This is so you can read about etymology and other comments the author's thought fit to put in their final submissions.

    Good luck!

    I'll be honest, Scratchet sounds like something greasy you'd find in beef dripping, or stuck to unwashed cutlery.

    Not sure why.
