CAP 28 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:

King Of Moths
Miasmaw, the False Jaw Pokémon

Sword: Through its false head, Miasmaw emits a noxious gas. This gas is said to be so acidic, Miasmaw grew draconic scales to avoid melting from its own poison.

Shield: While the actual body of Miasmaw is small and fairly weak, its large false head protects it from threats, being able to crush even steel plates with ease.
Miasmaw, the Dragon's Jaw Pokémon

Sword: It scares attackers with its draconic abdomen. Anything not intimidated by it is shot with a corrosive gas that can melt even titanium!

Shield: Its abdomen evolved to resemble a dragon in order to ward off predators. While fearsome in appearance, Miasmaw actually dislikes fighting.
Miasmaw, the Mock Jaw Pokémon

Sword: Its fearsome set of jaws is actually a stinger that has evolved to better catch prey. It is strong enough to tear a dump truck to pieces.

Shield: This Pokémon emits a potent, noxious gas from its jaws to paralyze its foes. It is able to spray a moving target from over a mile away!
Miasmaw, the Fumigation Pokémon

Sword: The gas that spills from its tail is inert, but its tendency to displace oxygen is deadly. This makes Miasmaw the mascot of many gas leak PSAs.

Shield: In combat, Miasmaw blasts foes with gas, then swiftly gores them with its tail. But since it's so top-heavy, these maneuvers cause frequent pratfalls.
Panic Station
Miasmaw, the Noxious Pokémon

Sword: The gas Miasmaw emits is known to cause nausea, headaches, and difficulty breathing. Its eyes are specialized to see through the smog it produces.

Shield: Miasmaw is a very confrontational Pokémon, so trying to run away will often incite attacks. Experts advise covering your face and backing away slowly.
Miasmaw, the Gas Leak Pokémon

Sword: Inhaling the gas produced by its tail causes symptoms that vary between people, including disorientation. Some believe it motivates the lazy and sluggish.

Shield: Chemical reactions in its abdomen create gases that leak from its draconic tail. It stuns prey with this putrid fog, then strikes with a powerful crunch.
Miasmaw, the Gas Beetle Pokémon

Sword: Nerves in its false jaw allow it to act independently from the rest of its body. Scientists once believed Miasmaw's abdomen housed a second brain.

Shield: It developed a false set of jaws to deter predators that could withstand its noxious gas. The weight of its abdomen makes it difficult to fly, however.

Those options without formatting:

King Of Moths
Panic Station


This poll will be open for 24 hours.
