    So on we go!

    Alright, so I chose the below ability slate mostly based on flavor but also based on how much support it got in the discussion thread. I was close to adding Cute Charm, but there was about as much support for it as their was anti-support, and personally Scratchet just doesn't seem like he'd attract anything like that. In lieu of that, I've chosen some scruffy abilities that you all liked and that I think wouldn't be absurd on Scratchet.

    The slated abilities 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.
    Here's our pre-evo so far:
    Name: Scratchet
    Typing: Normal / Fighting
    Base Stats: 55 HP / 85 Atk / 80 Def / 20 SpA / 70 SpD / 40 Spe
    Abilities: Scrappy / Prankster

    Defiant seems too powerful an ability for something that evolves into a Justified Pokemon (situational as it is, it still gives bigger boosts than Justified) and I think Scratchet and Tomohawk should have different DW abilities so that eliminates Justified as well.

    I would prefer to not have the same Ability as Tomohawk, and I don't really think Scratchet looks like it would be easily rattled, so that eliminates those two. Of the others, while it could be Defiant, I think Scratchet really looks like an active little guy which puts Hustle and Vital Spirit as my top 2.
