Greetings from the Create-A-Pokemon community! We're here to present our latest creation: Mollux! It took roughly 77 days to complete this Pokemon from start to finish. Our adventure was marked with heated competitive debates, outrageous art polls, and many other intriguing twists and turns. Mollux, the Mantle Pokémon, is a Fire / Poison cone snail with a unique immunity to Water-type attacks thanks to its ability, Dry Skin. Needless to say, Mollux is an incredibly unique Pokemon with plenty of tricks up its shell.
Since the creation stage is now completed, allow me to present the official CAP 3 playtest! This is a two week period where countless competitive Pokemon players with a wide range of expertise can battle in the metagame consisting of Black & White OU plus Mollux. This isolated test determines exactly how well Mollux meets its concept and what sort of impact it has on the entire metagame. Mollux has plenty of unique niches, from distributing status effects to spinning away harmful hazards. It can even utilize its base 131 Special Attack stat to fire off some powerful attacks. If you like to experiment and battle in a fun, creative, and combative environment in OU with an entirely new competitive Pokemon, check out Pokemon Showdown! to see what the fuss is all about!
While you're at it, you can chat about Mollux's playtest in the CAP forum. Feel free to reflect on the entire process and the ongoing playtest in the variety of up-to-date topics. While the CAP community has chosen not to give Mollux a pre-evolution, we will still be working hard over the next few weeks on updating CAP sprites, updating the CAP website, and discussing CAP policy. Scope out the CAP sub-site if you're looking to discover more even information. Whether you're a creative artist, a competitive battler, or a savvy writer, the CAP community is always eager to have new members jump in and start contributing. Join us and I'm sure you'll have a blast! ~Birkal
