    So, we have a small dilemma. We never actually chose a prevo design for Krillowatt, and now there are three separate designs for one. So, this is just going to be a simple click poll. Vote for which design you like best.

    Plicowatt

    Protowatt

    Attowatt

    Note: do not discuss changing the name. That will be a second poll after we choose the sprite. The names are just for disambiguation purposes.

    Can we have a "no pre-evo" option please

    Krillowatt never struck me as the sort of design that would naturally have a pre-evolution, and we aren't exactly obliged to invent pre-evos for every one.

    EDIT: Unless it has already been decided beforehand. If so, I vote for the spindly one.

    I'm making the executive decision that there will be a prevo.

    Hmmmm....

    Well first off, I'm not a fan of Protowatt (sorry). Seems a little too tiny to actually be a real Pokemon. Toss-up between the other two, but I ended up going with Atowatt.

    I like Plicowatt the most (Proto a close second), but its current sprite doesn't really fit the Gen 5 Style, facing the middle with a sort of, ah, darker color scheme. Still voted for it though.

    No.

    Edit: you're just voting for the general design. The winning sprite will be fixed eventually.

    Thank you.

    I'd make a better sprite if I had the time, but honestly what's done is done.

    Voted for my own creation, although if I had to pick from the other two (I freely admit that I can't scratch sprite) I'd probably choose Attowatt (it looks more like a shrimp larva than Protowatt, and I could see Attowatt as having the same stat spread as Plicowatt. Additionally, while I like the visual popcorn shrimp pun, it kind of just looks a little goofy-and seeing as I actually like Trubbish's design, that says something.)

    wait why is pilcowatt linked to my post?

    Anyways, between these concepts, I favor Prorowatt.

    Why?

    It shows a humorous resemblenece to its humorous (at least I think so) evolution. I love the cute design which flows with the coloring as well as the anatomical refrence.(who can't love that tasty popcorn shrimp?)

    Why not the others?

    Pilcowatt is quite confusing, anatomically and quite hard to grasp.(I've tried to resprite it tons and I could not find a pose that made it possible to portray)

    Attowatt is a great design, but it just doesn't fit its evolution. It looks more like a fish than a shrimp, personally.

    As tennisace stated above, this is a design poll, not a sprite poll. I believe that Protowatt is a malleable concept and can be easily incorpirated into a sprite without jeporadizing its anatomy.

    This is just my opinion, take it as you may.

    Oh this is up. Anway, onto the rate.

    Pilcowatt is pretty good. I like how he is bigger then the others and is more easy on the eye.

    Protowatt is far too small for my taste, however, this is just my opnion.

    Attowatt is also good, but I still like Plicowatt more.

    As said above, I voted Pilcowatt.

    EDIT: Dang, everyone start voting pilcowatt.

    Protowatt got my vote for multiple reasons:

    1) Popcorn shrimp pun was basically incredible.

    2) Looks like it could evolve into Krill. It's probably just me but the others look more like their own thing than a pre-evo.

    3) It's just so dang cute.

    Each of them have elements that I really like, but I can't really say one looks much better than the others, especially when it comes to looking like it would evolve into Krill. However, I don't think Plico's style fits as well, and Proto is a little too small for my taste. While I kinda wish it had the antena like the others, overall I would have to say Attowatt is my favorite.

    pilcowatt looks like the rejected first draft for stunfisk, and that's saying something

    Protowatt is clearly the most amazingly adorable prevo to have been invented :3

    Attowatt looks too, idk, awkward to me

    My main problem with Plicowat is that it has very little resemblance at all to Krillowat. Design, shape, coloring, etc. Attowat, on the other hand, looks much more like Krill, but could still be highly improved upon as a design. :c


    Protowat ni tōhyō! :3​

    I voted for my Attowatt.

    I'm not trying to promote myself, but to me, Protowatt looks too small, I also don't get the pun. Finally, I also like Plicowatt, but I've tried a lot of things for Atto.

    There you go.

    i voted for protowatt.
    it just seems more natural than pilcowatt, and it suits the final evo great. but attowatt is a close second.

    Protowatt 'cause it is cute and even though completely irrelevant; would be the most thrilling to see evolving into kril. Attowatt is nice too, but lacks a bit of simplistic charm we love things like Jigglypuff for IMO.
