    Now that Ghost/Steel lost, I'm voting Ghost/Fighting. I really love the type, but I'd hate to see this preventing Banette to gets its deserved Ghost/Fighting Kung-Fu marionette evolution.

    Ghost / Fighting would be the coolest thing ever. Hopefully if he's physical there would be a better physical ghost move than Shadow Punch. ;_;. If he's special, he'd rock with STAB Aura Sphere and Shadow Ball. HAHA, I can imagine it now! He'd be even defensive against Heracross, how awesome.

    Ghost / Fighting, here. Mostly thanks to futuresuperstar. I highly encourage anyone who can't decide to go back and read his amazing posts about Ghost/Fighting.

    EDIT: Here's the post by futuresuperstar:

    My apologies if you wanted to post it yourself, fss, but I wanted this to be on the first page and open for everyone to see how amazing Ghost/Fighting is. GOGOGO Ghost/Fighting!

    Awesome - Ghost Grass is still in. However, I don't really like Ghost Fighting if it is a sweeper.

    Because Ghost/Grass is absolute trash? And there aren't any good concepts for it? And Ghost/Fighting has awesome resistances? And two of its weaknesses aren't even seen in the metagame? Maybe that's why. But I don't know, I'm just throwing guesses around.

    Voted Ghost/Fighting. Rally around me, fellow Ghost/Normals!!!

    Oh my god, must everything that Smogon creates be insanely broken? Syclant has nothing that can safely switch into it, and a Ghost/Fighting has nothing that can bring it down besides a few obscure BL sweepers. Defensively or offensively, Ghost/Fighting would break the metagame. I obviously voted Ghost/Grass.

    yeah definately don't give it anything higher than 535 bst. so no 555, 580, or 600 bst option on the next poll.

    Hard choice but I want a Ghost/Fight because of the possibilities for a mixed attacker

    Name ten OU/BL counters and I'll be satisfied. The 600 dragons are all countered by a bulky or fast Ice Beamer, and Metagross and TTar are countered by fast sweepers with a super-effective move. Those obviously are very large pools of Pokémon. Gengar is countered by Weavile or any bulky Pursuiter, and other fast sweepers such as Weavile, Jolteon, and Aerodactyl are countered by anything bulky.

    Syclant is a sweeper with huge attack stats that make regular bulky Pokémon unable to switch into it for fear of being 2HKO'ed.

    EDIT: A Ghost/Fighting mixed attacker would be broken if it were either fast or bulky. So make it slow and frail, if you must make it at all. Also, we already have a mixed attacker in Syclant.

    why the hell would we make a slow and frail sweeper. it'd be like rampardos and nobody would use it, ever. this thing will probably be like swampert stat wise.

    Good, my worst fears weren't realized. This isn't going to be near as close as the last poll and will give definite results.
    I can say I'm not a fan of FSS writing up a BST for us without voting on it but am looking forward to a good Ghost/Fight.

    Role next or Art next?


    EDIT: FSS, not TSS.
