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

    Here are Huge Power & Pure Power as they stand:
    [BOX]Huge Power:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has immense inner strength that grows with its development, raising its Attack by one Rank for each evolution level (Baby = 1, Basic = 2, Stage 1 = 3). If Skill Swapped, the swapped Pokemon's Attack is only raised by one Rank.

    Pokemon with this ability: Marill, Azumarill, Azurill.[/BOX]
    [BOX]Pure Power:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has immense inner strength that grows with its development, raising its Attack by one Rank for each evolution level (Baby = 1, Basic = 2, Stage 1 = 3). If Skill Swapped, the swapped Pokemon's Attack is only raised by one Rank.

    Pokemon with this ability: Meditite, Medicham[/BOX]

    A proposal to alter both abilities has been raised, which has had no real objections at all, in Feedback, nor the discussion thread. The proposed versions are:
    [BOX]Huge Power:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has immense inner strength that grows with its development, raising its Attack and its Base Rank Total by one Rank for each evolution level (Baby = 1, Basic = 2, Stage 1 = 3). If Skill Swapped, the swapped Pokemon's Attack and Base Rank Total is only raised by one Rank.

    Pokemon with this ability: Marill, Azumarill, Azurill.[/BOX]
    [BOX]Pure Power:

    Type: Innate

    This Pokemon has immense inner strength that grows with its development, raising its Attack and its Base Rank Total by one Rank for each evolution level (Baby = 1, Basic = 2, Stage 1 = 3). If Skill Swapped, the swapped Pokemon's Attack and Base Rank Total is only raised by one Rank.

    Pokemon with this ability: Meditite, Medicham[/BOX]

    Council members will only vote on one thing, with a single vote conducted: Should we adopt the proposed changes to Huge Power & Pure Power or not?

    Your options are:

    [/BOX]

    Adopt the proposed Huge Power & Pure Power

    Give Azumarill & Medicham a reason to use a different ability in one ability matches. Also, the fact that they are handicapped for the purposes of Rare Candy is pretty dumb.

    Retain the current Huge Power & Pure Power

    This is a pointless change and makes zero sense to me, but whatever.

    EDIT: Before someone tells me, yes I've read the comments above, but I still don't see this change fitting in the slightest.

    Abstain, I really don't care either way and this vote is already finalized.

    Can we just make it so these get implemented once they hit majority? It's a waste of time to wait for the last council members to post their useless votes.

    QFT.

    Anyhow, more than half the council voted in favour of implementing the proposed changes, so there is no point waiting for Engineer. Majority.

    The changes to Huge Power & Pure Power will be effective immediately in all new battles & challenges.
