CAP 31 So Far


After an incredible discussion led by our Typing Leader, dex, we will be deciding on CAP 31's typing through two series of polls. If you haven't taken the chance to read through the thread, please refer to the Typing Discussion thread HERE to make an informed decision when submitting your ballot! Lastly, here are the descriptions for each typing combination slated, pulled from dex's final post here.

Rock / Flying - Rock / Flying has been unilaterally supported in this thread as a typing that accentuates Rock's strengths while providing a normally offensive type with some nice defensive qualities. This typing is an excellent balance of offensive and defensive traits that leaves our options quite open in future stages.

Ground - The first slated singular type in quite a while, Ground appreciates Diamond Storm's ability to hit Flying types. The famed EdgeQuake coverage is strong here, and Ground is a solid defensive typing that has the potential to make unique use out of Diamond Storm's boost.

Rock / Electric - Rock / Electric goes all in on offense and does not look back. Doubling down on pressuring Flying-types, Electric gives Rock the ability to hit Corviknight and every relevant Water-type in the tier. This typing has interesting implications when it comes to stats and moves due to the dearth of good physical Electric-type moves.


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:

Rock / Electric

Rock / Flying

This poll will be open for 24 hours.
