    Futuresuperstars' moveset would equal us making a Gothic version of Gallade!
    I vote for that one, it would be awesome to have an evil Gallade!

    If Hyra doesn't/can't move this on soon, for whatever reason, I'll create the next thread myself.

    On that note what are we voting for next? I'll go out on a limb and say it's abilities, and I want people to suggest good abilities for the next poll.

    Wouldn't it be more easier if we did the ability after we know what the ghost/fight creature looks like?

    Most of the sprites have fists. Iron Fist would rock with it.

    it was stats THEN ability THEN art

    scrappy for an ability is pointless. why would you need to hit ghosts with a fighting attack when ghost is SE against ghost and you get stab on it?

    There's always my suggestion of Insomnia. Zombies do not sleep! In fact, they don't get poisoned either. Insomnia/Immunity?

    I never said your ability suggestions were bad. I merely said that it would be easier if we knew what the fuck the final look is.

    HEY!

    I'm here. It's just homework kind of ate all my internet time for the last week. I was sick the week before, so all the work from there was lumped into this week.

    Anyways, new thread will be up as soon as I copy of a TaB's work (he drew too many good designs). I'm just going to do a multiple choice clicky poll in the beginning, it's just easier.

    Levitate and Pressure are already Waaaaay too OU for a Ghost.

    Guts is too used for a fighter.

    Vital Spirit might work.

    Hmmm, didn't think it would be this tough.

    Ghost type abilities:
    Pressure
    Levitate
    Insomnia
    Wonder Guard
    Keen Eye
    Stall
    Snow Cloak
    Aftermath
    Unburden

    We can pretty much axe this entire list, bar Insomnia, Keen Eye, and Stall.

    Fighting type abilites:

    Anger Point
    Vital Spirit
    Damp
    Water Absorb
    Guts
    No Guard
    Reckless
    Limber
    Keen Eye
    Iron Fist
    Swarm
    Steadfast
    Intimidate
    Technician
    Blaze
    Effect Spore
    Poison Heal
    Thick Fat
    Pure Power
    Inner Focus
    Anticipate
    Dry Skin

    Since I doubt this will be getting Damp, Water Absorb, No Guard, Limber, Iron Fist, Blaze, Effect Spore, Poison Heal, Swarm, Thick Fat, or Dry Skin through any kind of logic, that leaves a few options.

    Some would be overpowering. Pure Power and Technician fall in this category.

    Guts and Intimidate are so prevalent it isn't even funny.

    This leaves, with the Ghost list:
    Insomnia
    Keen Eye
    Stall
    Anger Point
    Vital Spirit
    Reckless
    Steadfast
    Inner Focus
    Anticipate

    I suppose you could argue about the power of Anger Point on something so bulky, but if FSS stays on top it only has uh, 65 Base speed. Even Rhykune's 7- doesn't make a +6 Attack after CH, even with a miraculous Salac Berry an unbeatable threat. Although if it has Shadow Sneak or Mach Punch it could be... troublesome.

    Reckless only helps it if we give it HJK. Steadfast is an interesting option, although flinch moves aren't prevalent, and even though it could theoretically make Togekiss cry if it worked, it won't. The rest are mostly throwaway abilities, and Insomnia and Vital Spirit are clones.

    Other possible choices could be Own Tempo and Synchronize.

    We're gonna give a pokemon basically begging to use Bulk Up the Simple ability? No way matey. +2 Atk and Def in one move? Not to my liking.
