    Thanks, though I have to say, I hate it when I spam my own thread.

    dark-war-cloud: How did you upload your avatar as your avatar? Isn't it too big? That's the problem I'm coming up against at the moment.

    Your name? I was the one who brought Aufies to the table as an option to use in the name. I came up with Aufylus. All you did was say
    I worked out "How to do it", putting them together and coming up with Aufylus. I am not taking credit for anyone elses work. Please stop smearing my good name.

    you might have too many bytes on it. try lowering the number of frames or something like that. and make sure it is in the limits. and try to make the image smaller.. just pm me the frames i can fix it probably.

    No, you came up with Auflus. I added the y and made it Aufylus. I don't mind if you put your name there, but put mine also, we each did an equal amount of work.

    Anyways, we need another poll. This one has worn itself out.

    Lol, it doesn't matter, but I voted Special. I say its name should be Mantects (Mantis+Insects) Instead of s, I put t.

    How about "Syclant"? [pronounced sickle-ant]. Icicle+Ant.

    Sounds fair to me.

    Also, I agree we need another poll. Voting on the name seems the next thing to do as we've got quite a few options out there and easily enough for a poll.

    Cooper, please put my name in the name poll =3

    And thanks, DWC. Sunday, what do you think of my name?

    EDIT: Plus it sounds cool with the items: "ChoiSycle", "SpecSycle", "ScarfSycle"

    lol

    I like heaps of the names, yours included. That's why I think we should be allowed to chose multiple options in the name poll.

    Lawman, I added yours to my post last page that Cooper is referencing from when he makes the name poll.

    Aufylus? How the hell do you pronounce that, "Awful-lus"?

    EDIT: Sunday, its pronounced "Sickle-ant", but its supposed to be "icicle+ant" =X

    oh yes absolutely... i didn't think of that...
    we definately need to discuss a prevo. i think we should use a termite prevo. it should be just a small bug like thing, no ice arms, only an ice abdomen as our creation has. oh just made me think of something... this pokemon needs poison sting, i would use it on his set definately.

    termice is a good idea as well. gah, we need another poll with all the options posted nice and neat and all together.

    edit: as far as pre-evo's go, we can't go wrong with larvice =P
