    Yeah, no BP. Swords Dance will be learned by TM, and tail Glow is received by breeding from Volbeat. This also limit the special sweeping abilities of Syclant outside his STAB, because it's impossible to get Tail Glow and Earth Power.

    I have a CRAZY idea. I really love RockotheTacho's images. So i was looking through them when i came across this: http://rockothetaco.deviantart.com/art/Infernant-60219675 His entry says "Fire Ant". Now i was thinking of a Split evo? The first evo could be A normal type and evolves into Scylant or Infernant by stones. What do you think?

    Edit: Not like Eevee. It would be like ranks in an Ant colony. Queen/Worker/Soldeir/Nurse/etc.

    I was originally going to shoot you down immediately, but you don't deserve that. Your idea makes sense, but I still say no. Having even a neutral bug evolve into either Ice or Fire pokemon would require some sort of event, like Glaceon had, and that would mean Nintendo would either need a place like the Ice Rock or a new stone. We didn't even want to ask for a new move, why would we want something like that?

    It was worth a try. It sounded ok, but i forgot there was no Ice Stone. Lol. So then might i suggest we use RocktheTacho as our designer from now on?

    As much as I hate to say it, I only really like a few of his creations. A lot of them are kind blah.

    Erm... no? Just because you think his art is impressive doesn't mean we can bypass the weeks-long art thread we had, as well as the three-part poll. He's welcome to participate, but "official designer" is out of the question.

    IMO Cyzir's was still the best even without an Animation.

    Now we know how Ninty/GameFreak feels when they have to make pokemon. Give them more respect in my opinion.

    Last I saw, this thing was planned to be in the bug and ground egg groups. Ground, as in Smeargle.

    I was only going to put it in Ground group for Earth Power, until I realized that Trapinch is Bug.

    Okay, I don't think Ice Beam/Focus Blast/Attack Order/Tail Glow is too bad though. I'm too lazy to check, but I think only Qwilfish and Tentacruel resist it.

    Hm... and Attack Order/Ice Punch/Brick Break/Swords Dance for physical? Seems like the physical side will be easily walled by Steels because Superpower doesn't mix well with Swords Dance.

    Syclant isn't getting the Orders. They don't work flavor-wise, especially if this is a colony. Syclant can only be male, and therefore is a mindless drone incapable of ordering anything around. It's like Combee, I think.

    Most Steel walls have either insanely high defense (Steelix), are neutral to fighting (Bronzong), or both(Skarm and Forry).

    Technically all workers and foragers in an ant colony are female, as the males are busy impregnanting and cleaning the Queen.

    I agree. Only Sannec, Pernade, Brikait'd and Skeletank are ones I'm proud of. Some are oughtright terrible, like Sectome...

    KOA gmv. Cyzir has no animation and Doug's is just too long.

    KoA's is the best, bar none. Doug's is a bit too... square, and Cyzir's is a bit too glittery.

    Thanks for reading. Cyzir will obviously be making an animation if he was chosen. Not likely now, but still this is why I want people to have to post to vote, we can correct them if they use faulty logic.

    I very much agree with you here, you vote KOA becuase no animation on, IMHO, the best one. vote on the actual sprite not the animation.
