Jesus frickin' Christ, people. Just because YOU don't like Spikes doesn't mean we should have an ability devoted to coming in safely. Whatever, another two days of polling to shut you all up is fine with me [/kidding]. Fine, because a certain person decided to complain, I'm going to settle this once and for all with a poll 14. This poll will serve two purposes: it will give me a chance to point out how broken Ice Shell is once it wins, and it will allow for discussion about the pre-evo. But for the poll at hand, here are the abilities in question: Ice Shell: Syclant takes no indirect damage for the turn it switches in (specifically from Spikes, Toxic Spikes, and Stealth Rock). Mountaineer: This pokemon takes no indirect or direct damage from Rock type attacks upon switching in. This doesn't block additional effects. Vote. On a different note, I'm going to point out a few things about the pre-evo that we should all know: It will have the same movepool as Syclant, but will learn everything sooner. Standard. Come on, do we really need a new sprite for this? There have been plenty of links to Cyzir's page of pre-evos, and as I recall, everyone agreed to use them. The first is the only on that works for that purpose. The name needs to relate to Syclant. We can't have something Bugarc (Bug + Arctic) evolve into Syclant. I'm leaning toward Sylar myself. This poll will close in two days. Hopefully we can end this then.
