    Because of the incredibly slim margin by which Mario with Lasers' stat spread won (1 vote), and the fact that the first three options didn't even come close to tying, I've decided to finalize things with a once-and-for-all death match! This poll will feature only Hyra's and MwL's spreads. There will be no second chances here, so make sure you choose wisely!

    The ability poll is next on the list, and I'm pretty sure I know which abilities are going to be featured. Like this poll, it will be a two-parter, taking the top three abilities to another poll. But why am I talking about that now, when we need new move suggestions! Considering how incredibly poor our new Ice/Bug is defensively, it needs type coverage. Debate is needed for anew move.

    Here are the explanations of the sets you have to vote on, for those of you that haven't already decided:

    Hyra:
    Mario with Lasers:

    Now get voting! Because it is a follow-up and many of you have already picked your favorite, this poll will close in TWO days, not three.

    Link to art thread. If you have a submission for what our pokemon will ultimately look like, post it there.

    Why not some sort of attack that represents the swarmingness of bugs, their ability to seek out the weaknesses of the opponent? Like, 50 Base Power, but it was physical and special based on whichever defense of your opponent was lower?

    I'll just list out some moves that I would suggest (Not saying all should be used). I'm going to try and be realistic with this move pool, so dont go "ROFL n00b!" When I list Hyper Beam or Double Team, since almost every pokemon learns them >_>:

    Pursuit
    Sucker Punch

    Flail
    Giga Impact (What? I wanna be realistic here >_>)
    Hyper Beam (^^^^)
    Headbutt
    Quick Attack
    Return
    Rock Climb
    Secret Power
    Strength
    Tackle
    Take Down

    Taunt

    Bulk Up
    Detect

    Sunny Day

    Sand Attack

    Hail

    Attract
    Copy Cat
    Double Team
    Endure
    Focus Energy
    Leer
    Protect

    Yes I know it's not create a move, but blame Gothic Togekiss. Anyways 555 set ftw

    Name: Cuccoon
    Type: Bug
    Support
    Power: N/A
    Acc: N/A
    PP: (Unsure of Roost PP)
    Effect: Regains 50% of Health and removes Bug Type for turn of use.

    Like an Bug type version of Roost.

    Metamorphisise
    Type: Bug
    Support
    Power: N/A
    Acc.: 60%
    Changes Bug Typing to resist the type of last attack

    Always believed Bug's should have these abilities

    Other move, which I've been given some thought, Which is like Marmite (either love it or hate it)

    Name: Unsure
    Type: Bug
    Support
    Power: N/A
    Acc.: N/A
    Effect: Splits the pokemon into 2 seperate entities at half stats. Only works in Double Battle

    Bugs have always been an adaptive organism to any situation, I believe these moves show this.

    I like Mario's, but voted for Hyra's, as I like it better. Mario's is more distributed on HP and defenses, etc, but when you think about it, even with those defenses and HP, it still can't take a hit. Horrible typing adds to that. Hyra's however, is faster, and outspeeds a lot of stuff. It also has a significantly better attack stat.

    Voted Hyra again.

    If you care about reasons, check the last thread.

    MwL's still in the lead by 1 currently.

    Exactly, but people are going to pick it anyway ("omg 555 total"). I like the first one better for reasons I listed in my other post.

    Definitely MwL, the logic '47 base hp reduces the effectiveness of Steal Rock' is absolute failure, in order for that to be a factor at all it would need base defences that matter. As it all it means is 'I die to random priority attacks if I switch in with SR. If blissy got quick attack it could splatter my inards all over the place.'

    Base 70 HP at least gives it a chance to survive random priority moves, and get at least one hit in.

    Might be able to survive a hit. Defenses aren't that bulky really.

    Well, I was going to vote for MwL. Then I realized the disservice it would do Arcanine. Some Pokemon should remain special, Arcanine is one of them. Also, I got to stick up for myself.

    I have a feeling I will lose by alot this time. Almost everyone who voted for the 1st 3 spreads, especially Deck Knight's, will vote against me.

    Oh, we are supposed to make NEW moves? My bad >_>

    How about this:

    Icy Charge
    Type: Ice
    Physical
    BP: 120
    Acc: 90
    PP: 15

    Effect: User Decreases Body Temperature dramatically, then charges towrad opponent for substantial damage. Heavy Recoil.

    An Ice Type Double Edge/ Flare Blitz essentially.

    Scout
    Type Bug
    Support
    BP: -
    AC: 90
    PP: 10
    Effect: User forces opponent to switch to another pokemon, and back to the original in one turn. Pokemon can still attack, but takes damage from external things such as spikes. Negative Priority however.

    Freeze
    Ice
    Support
    BP: -
    AC: 85
    PP: 15
    Effect: Freezes the opponents item, rendering it useless, but is still held by the opponent.


    Shed
    Bug
    Support
    BP: -
    AC: -
    PP: 20
    Effect: Speed is raised, while defense is lowered

    Yeah, crappy names, I know >_>

    I voted for Hyra again. Because I fell the same way about Arcanine. Also I think it should have 1 stat under 50.

    I like MwL's because it is more focused on Sp. Atk.

    Frost Bite
    Type: Ice move

    BP: --
    Accuracy: 90

    Effect: Freezes your opponents Pokemon.
    -------

    This move could be the ice version of Thunder Wave / Will-O-Wisp / Toxic?
