    In the first thread of this pre-evolution process, we discussed some of the overall ideas that we need to focus on for Syclar, the pre-evolution of Syclant. At the end, I threw out some thoughts that are necessary to consider for the future of Syclar. Please read through that post you you understand where I'm coming from in the following threads. Thanks!

    Now, we are going to pick the second ability that Syclar will receive. Since Compoundeyes won the last poll, we are now voting on the Pokemon's secondary ability. I made it known that I wanted Syclar to retain one of the abilities of its evolution: Syclant. Since we have already fulfilled that quota, there will be more options available for this poll (Mountaineer is still an option). We discussed all of the below abilities for Syclar in this thread; be sure to read through that thread before giving us your vote!

    Recall that this poll operates on IRV voting, the details of which are outlined here. This means that you can upvote your favorite ability and downvote your least favorite. Be aware that order does matter in your votes! The first line is your favorite, the last line is your least favorite. Make sure you vote properly. Make sure that you bold your votes and nothing else! A typical vote might look like the following:
    Please post only your votes in this thread. Do not respond to other posts, or your posts will be moderated and you warned. If you feel compelled to say something in your own vote, you may still do so, but don't try to incite a discussion. Keep discussion to #cap.

    The list of possible votes includes:
    Mountaineer
    Illuminate
    Swarm
    Snow Cloak

    This poll will be open for 24 hours, as is customary.


    What we have so far:

    Name: Syclar
    Type: Ice / Bug
    Abilities: Compoundeyes / ???

    Pwnemon has kindly reminded me that there are no Pokemon in existence that gain a secondary ability while maintaining their primary ability. Read through this list if you don't believe me, haha. As a result, No Secondary Ability cannot be an option on this poll; I am removing it from the slate and editing it out of the above votes. Thanks for your understanding, my bad!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think everything with Swarm either has that ability through the entire family or only gets it right at the end. It's too epic an ability to only put on a prevo.

    I swear to Arceus if we have two illuminate pokemon in a row...well, it will be awfully silly.
