    Please do not post here unless you are a Council Member or Deck Knight. Anyone else who posts here WILL be infracted. Thank you.

    Time to fix Forewarn. Here is the Current Forewarn for reference.
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has the ability to sense the opponents super-effective, OHKO, and explosive attacks, and has a percentage (%) chance to evade equal to one (1) plus (+) double (×2) the move's base attack power. This percentage chance (%) is applied to the attacking move's base accuracy.

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX]

    There will be one vote in this thread. If a majority is impossible to reach due to something along the lines of the Agility/Teleport vote, then a tie-breaker vote from Deck Knight will be required. Even after that, there is no majority, then there will be a re-vote with reduced options. Either way, the Council will only be voting on one thing: What should Forewarn be changed to, if at all?

    This vote will be conducted IRV-style, where Council Members will vote for their preferences for the new Forewarn in descending order (Most preferred to least preferred). Council Members must vote all options in said preference order in order to have their votes count.

    The Slate is as follows:
    [BOX]Current Forewarn
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX]
    Evasive Forewarn
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has the ability to sense the opponents attacks, and tend to be more evasive in nature. When this Pokemon uses the Dodge command, the Evasion rate of Dodge is increased by a percentage (%) of one (1) plus (+) double (×2) the move's base attack power used by the opposing Pokemon targeting this Pokémon. This Pokemon's Dodge has no cap on maximum dodge rate. Evasive Agility, Evasive Teleport, and Dodge each cost three (3) less energy to use.

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX]
    Grazing Forewarn
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has the ability to sense the opponents attacks, and tend to be more evasive in nature. When this Pokemon uses the Dodge command, Evasive Agility, or Evasive Teleport, if this Pokemon takes damage while using either command, then the final damage inflicted to this Pokemon is halved (×0.5).

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX]
    Anticipation-Clone Forewarn
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has the ability to sense the opponents super-effective, OHKO, and explosive attacks, and if hit by either move, then the BAP of that move is reduced by two (2).

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX]
    Passive Forewarn
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has the ability to sense the opponents super-effective attacks, and as such, is able to avoid the super effective move with the highest BAP in an opponent's movepool, and all combinations involving said move. If two or more super effective attacks have the same highest BAP, then all of them are used.

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX]
    Substitution Forewarn
    [BOX]Forewarn:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon is more adept than usual at sensing and reacting to the opponent's attacks. As a result, it gets a bonus move substitution that must have a condition in the format "If Pokemon X uses move Y", with no further qualifiers or additional clauses allowed. This bonus substitution may go anywhere in the list of substitutions the pokemon makes, but it must be indicated with "Bonus" or "Bonus Sub" or something similar in front of the bonus substitution.

    Pokemon with this ability: Drowzee, Hypno, Jynx, Smoochum, Munna, Musharna, Necturna.[/BOX][/BOX]

    Your options are:
    [BOX]Current Forewarn
    Evasive Forewarn
    Grazing Forewarn
    Anticipation-Clone Forewarn
    Passive Forewarn
    Substitution Forewarn[/BOX]
    Vote in this format. Otherwise, let the voting commence.
