    Okay, the 500-525 stat total won out.

    Here, we shall decide the final base stat spread of our Ghost/Fighting Pokemon. Guidelines that the stat creators had to follow where that the Pokemon be Physical in its offenses, have relatively equal defenses, be relatively equal in its ability to deal hits and its ability to take them, and finally it must lie in the speed range of 60 - 85 speed.

    Voting for this thread will be done in a preferential format. You order and bold the spreads you want from 1-9, with your favorite as number one and your least favorite as number nine. The number you give a spread is the number of points it earns. The spread with the least amount of points at the end is the winner, similar to golf. Please refer to each spread by its creator's name. This method allows us to be accurate while only performing one poll.

    The scoring is similar to golf, in which the lowest score WINS, not loses, WINS.

    List your votes from 1-9, with one being your favorite and nine being your least favorite.

    Name each spread after its creator.

    Example below:
    1. Sanjay120 - my favorite
    2. Gothic Togekiss
    3. Rhykune
    4. DougJustDoug
    5. Futuresuperstar
    6. King of Anime
    7. Deck Knight
    8. Eric the Espeon
    9. Lord Sunday -
    my least favorite


    110 / 95 / 80 / 70 / 75 / 85 = 515.

    Both Atk and Def leaning towards Physical? Check.
    Balanced Defences? Check, only five BP difference.
    Speed within 60-85? Check.
    BST Within 500-525? Check, 515.
    Not so much Atk or Spe that people will be temped to wack a Choice Scarf or Choice Band on it an attempt to sweep? Check.

    I believe this Stat spread gives our Pokemon the ability to tank effectivly while still being able to dish out a few hits. This spread ensures that people are not tempted to attempt to sweep with what was clearly intended to be a tanky Pokemon. The speed is enough so that it can outspeed non-scarf Adamant Heracross, allowing it to be a suficient counter. The Special attack is not sacrificed to allow the other stats a slight boost. This is important as with a few buffs in the form of Calm Mind this Pokemon has an alternative to Physical Attacks.[/quote]




    Cooper declined to send in a thread.

    Okay, I'm gonna leave this thread open for a while, because it is one of the most important ones so far.

    Wait...what? Care to explain what it's the vote with the least amount of votes and not the most as that logically make more sense to me.

    Because if you favorite is the spread you list as number 1, and being number 1 is worth 1 point, that means the spread with the most number ones should have the least number of points.

    EXAMPLE

    My order of Preference:
    Sunday
    Eric
    Sanjay
    KoA
    Doug
    Gothic Togekiss
    Deck Night
    Futuresuperstar
    Rhykune


    So Sunday gets 1 point for being #1, and thus the person with the least points wins.

    EDIT: This may aswell be my real votes too. I'll just need a minute to confirm them as they're a little rushed.

    Okay...I somewhat follow you. So basically it's Most voted on spread = most smallest score and least voted on spread = most biggest score, am I right?

    Yah. Basically, the number you give a spread is the number of points it gets. Putting #9 as the favorite sounds wierd, and making points go in reverse just makes counting harder. My way sounds wierd too, but it makes sense with some explaining.

    And Sunday, the first post is tl;dr because you guys like to type.

    Well, those are my thoughts. i wasn't sure if i went with too little moves, but it is better than too much. I hope this is at least considered, even if it isn't really needed right now. I have been feeling left out, since I am not sure about BST.

    Uh... Gengar, why are you saying sorry to the person you voted as number one? Number one is still the best.

    I added some more stuff to the OP to clarify. Number one is your favorite, and number nine is your least favorite. Least points win, similar to golf.

    Note to Everyone:

    Hyra is using Golf Rules

    This means that the lower your score the better you are doing.

    To look at it another way, you are ranking your favorites.

    1 is your most favorite
    2 is your second favorite
    and so on and so forth.

    I like the idea of voting this way, but votes will be a pain to count.

    By the way, could you copy/paste FSS's spread into the top of his post as well? I (and many other people I'm sure) just take a quick look at the spreads and then vote from there, skimming over the write-ups, so scrolling down to his actual stat spread takes awhile. Not a big deal but I figured I'd mention it.

    Edit: Or just a list of names/spreads at the top of the topic, and then the explanations later. That'd probably be simplest and easiest to look at.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh. It took me a few reads to really understand, but I see it now. I will go back and edit that.

    @Sunday: I'm sorry. I went back and I like yours better than others. Don't worry!

    EDIT: Can someone comment on my Movepool? I feel like I'm useless and I think I should work on something while we do this.

    IMHO instead of working off 'points' ranking from best to worst really lends itself tp preferential voting. As in the person with the least 1st votes gets all their votes given to the person who was ranked second on that list and so on. When the voting is gone i may actually tally up the votes in this way just to see if there's a difference...

    augh hyra put them all in one list this is confusing

    1. Mine
    2. Eric
    3. KoA
    4. Rhykune
    5. FSS
    6. Togekiss
    7. Deck Knight
    8. Sunday
    9. Doug


    What, you expect me to say someone else did better than me? If I thought that was true I'd drop out right now.

    And haha, I was somewhat right. Although '101' is barely over '100'.

    6-KoA
    7-Eric the espeon

    Over 100 HP is overkill. It needs SDef...and a usable SAtk is appreciated.

    If anyone is thinking I'm an idiot for posting that list still thinking #9 was the best, I was editing it as Hyra was first talking about the Golf thing.
