    Absolutely nothing says "I"m an elitist colored gentleman that is absolutely prepared to curbstomp your laughably weak in-game team of NUs like the inelegant overweight white fellow you are." quite like Excadrill. And that is exactly what Smogon is and should be. Well, maybe Bouffalant, but for some dumb reason that isn't an option.

    Celebi is the best mon for this, clearly. Sorry, I'm a sucker for time-travelling plant fairies and I can't believe that this hasn't been done sooner. It's a no-brainer. But if it doesn't come to pass, I'll easily go with Excadrill for pretty much the same reason reach posted. Also IT HAS DRILLS FOR HANDS WTF!!!!! Finally, it's pretty obvious that the OP just forgot to put Bouffalant in. I mean, come on.

    if we can't come up with a final new mascot, i propose we start a contest in Smeargle's Studio to create a hybrid sprite of the top three when the poll is over.

    Celebi - The time travel pokemon signifies that we as a website will continue to be present and stand the test of time. It's a great metaphor, and I'm surprised no other prominent pokemon site has taken it as of yet.

    Tyranitar - Nothing says "fuck you" to the environment like a Tyranitar. Seriously, this bad ass changes entire landscapes when its pissed off, it fucking knocks down mountains with its fists just to make a nest and buries rivers for fun, and it picks fights just to show everyone who's the boss. Nothing embodies our elitist site like "we will fucking destroy the competition if they annoy us" like a Tyranitar.

    Afrobull - It has a signature move called AFRO BREAK! If that isn't deserving of mascot status, I don't know what is. I guess it loses cool points though for being a Herbivore when it's bad ass enough to eat whatever the fuck it likes.

    Hold on just a second. Are we going to require a 2/3 supermajority to make this change? I think we should because if we keep our current mascot, people will still be angry about it so we'll have more time to discuss a new mascot in the future. If we make a change, however, people will be timid and stick with what might be an inferior mascot. I don't think people have sufficiently proven any other mascot superior, and as such, I have to make my vote:

    Athough 108 base HP may seem like a lot, very very few garchomps use it to it's max potional basically eleminating the possible of '101 subs' which means that it cant block attacks as well as other things, like Jirachi can while its behind a sub.

    [​IMG]

    ATTACK
    BASE: 130
    I have to addmit 130 base ATTACK is a whooper, but many other pokemon such as Tyranitar, Dragonite, and Slaking have way more attacking power than this thing, and none of those have even been close to be considered banned. Secondaly Garchomp shares this attack base with many pokemon such as Ursaring, Kingler and Absol all of which are in the UU teir!

    [​IMG]

    DEFENSE
    BASE: 95
    Garchomps 95 base DEFENSE may seem indimating, but if you think about it garchomp never uses any defense EVs. Also 95 isn't that much considering it barely makes the top 100 on Serebii's defense teir http://serebii.net/pokedex-dp/stat/defense.shtml actually its the very last pokemon on the list! And add in the fact that stuff like chainchomp use a -def nature!​
