And now it's time for the second poll. Remember that these changes will impact Saharaja. Here's the reasoning for every option on this slate:
Shnowshner's proposal: A lighter approach than Zetalz's that aims to do something similar, attacking bulk through HP as well as speed. One of few that adds Taunt to the move removal list, as well.

Spoo's proposal: This stat nerf's main point of attention is the attack drop, one of only a handful that suggested hitting Saharaja's offensive strength. It's a different way of making the camel a bit less effective as a wincon, and one that I think should be represented on the slate.

Got permission to revise this so I'm gonna do that

Nerf Package:
New stats: 62/120/105/65/130/78
-8 HP
-12 Speed

Move removals:
Power Whip, Leech Seed, Thunder Wave, Rock Slide, Poison Jab, Sucker Punch, Taunt
-8 Atk, -7 SpD, -12 Speed
New Stats: 70 / 112 / 105 / 65 / 123 / 78
-Power Whip, Poison Jab, Rock Slide, Leech Seed, Sucker Punch, Thunder Wave


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:

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:

Package 2 by shnowshner
Package 3 by spoo

This poll will be open for 24 hours.

Package 3 by spoo

After some thought, I changed my mind and sort of prefer spoo's a bit more now. Both of these are good though.
