CAP 27 So Far


This will be a Ranked Pairs vote (RP) (a form of voting where each candidate is ranked according to head to head matchups with each of its competitors in a directed acyclic graph), the details of which were discussed here.

This is a ranked vote: order does matter! You can upvote your favorites and downvote your least favorites. You may choose to rank as many or as few options as you like, but we encourage you to rank as many options as possible to ensure your preferences are taken into account.

Bold your votes and nothing else!
A typical vote might look like the following:
Most Preferred
Second Most Preferred
Third Most Preferred

Any comments that the voter has would go below the votes in non-bold text. Bold text is used to determine what the user's votes are, so none of the supplementary text should be in bold.
CAP uses automated scripts to count votes. For this reason, it is very important for all ballots to be submitted correctly. If you do not compose a legal ballot, your post will be subject to moderation.
  • The scripts count bold words in ballots, so do NOT bold anything in your ballot other than the options you are voting for.
  • Do NOT put any formatting other than bold in your post.
  • Only one option per line.
  • The spelling of options must be EXACTLY correct and must match the spelling listed above.
  • Capitalization and spaces are ignored by the vote counting scripts, but you probably should not depend on it.
Composing a proper ballot is easy. Enter BBCode Edit Mode (the A in the upper right corner). Copy/paste the options directly from the OP to your ballot as plain unbolded text. Delete and/or rearrange the options to suit your preference and the poll type. Bold your vote text using bold tags or re-enter rich text mode, highlight your vote and click B. Spelling or formatting errors may spoil your ballot, so be careful!

CAP uses blind voting. Other people's votes won't appear in the thread, but they are counted and will be made visible at the end of the voting timeframe. For more information about this change, check out this PRC thread.

Asking for votes for your submission or for the submissions of others is not allowed. Anyone found to have done so risks punishment at the moderation team's discretion. If you find that someone has broken this rule, please contact the CAP moderation team with your evidence and no one else. Mini-moderation of this rule is also considered a serious offense and can be punished.


The voting options are:

The Metric System


The legal Pokedex entries for each user are as below:

The Metric System
Astrolotl, the Shooting Star Pokémon

Sword: Astrolotl illuminate the night sky with their flight. Groups of Astrolotl migrating across Galar are frequently mistaken for meteor showers.

Shield: It is a Galar custom to make a wish when Astrolotl are seen flying at night. The Pokemon may curiously descend if the wish is kind.
Astrolotl, the Luminescent Pokémon

Sword: These energetic Pokémon always frolic in groups of five. On clear nights, they fly in perfect formation, leaving trails of colorful sparks like tiny stars.

Shield: Its luminous, whip-like tail and feelers are covered in glands that secrete a fluid hotter than lava. If lost in battle, they will grow back within a day.
Astrolotl, the Flare Pokémon

Sword: It releases excess energy as sparks, creating a shimmering trail as it races through the night sky. People sometimes mistake Astrolotl for a shooting star.

Shield: When an Astrolotl gets separated from its pack, they will fire colorful bursts into the sky to act as a beacon to guide the lost one home.

This poll will be open for 24 hours.
The Metric System

I feel like Falchion's entries really hit the mark with the "space" + "axolotl" concept. The Sword entry touches mainly on the former, while the Shield entry explains the latter. Pipotchi's entries are fine, too, though they primarily explain how Astrolotl is space-related and that it can fire flares. The Metric System's entries only talk about the concept of Astrolotl being like a shooting star, and do not explain anything about its biology, I'm afraid. Thus, I ranked my posts as above.
