The art poll is arguably the most intense and emotional stage of the Project, and for good reason! The winning design from this round of polling will become the most visible element of this CAP's design and will serve as the inspiration for the Pokemon's in-battle sprite. As usual, there are many great submissions from our outstanding community of artists, so be sure to reward your favorites with the votes they all worked so hard to earn!

This will be a multiple bold vote, which means you vote for as many entries as you like. It is unweighted so order does not matter. Bold your votes and nothing else! A typical vote might look like the following:
First Entry I Like
Second Entry I Like
Third Entry I Like


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.
  • 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 wrench 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!

Please post only your votes in this thread. Do not respond to other posts, or your posts will be moderated and you may be warned. You are allowed to say whatever you like in relation to your vote at the bottom of your post, but please do not look to begin a discussion. Keep those comments to #cap on IRC.

If your art is missing from the poll, you have probably either not made a Final Submission post or have broken one of our rules, check below for illegal submissions:
Blue Frog: Included full-size supporting art
Cartoons!: Transparent background
Golurkyourself: File size exceeds 200kb
Hailblue: Image size exceeds 640 pixels
LimaPro643: Image size exceeds 640 pixels

If you're one of these people, please be more careful in future and better luck next time.

IMPORTANT! New Rule: (Please see this thread for the discussion that lead to the rule)
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.

This vote will run for 48 hours. And here are the entrants for whom you may vote:

So many great designs! Congratulations to all of our dedicated artists, and good luck to all of you in the polls!

--------------------

CAP 6 so far:

Name: Show Me Your Moves!

General Description: A good user of moves with effects not frequently used in the OU metagame.

Justification: There are many moves in Pokémon with great effects, but they often end up unused. Moves such as Gravity, Snatch, and Safeguard have potential in OU, but they are neglected for several reasons: the moves are apparently overshadowed, have poor distribution, or are inefficient compared to another strategy. This CAP uses a combination of typing, ability, and stats to make these underused moves not only feasible, but also capable.

Questions To Be Answered:
  • What mechanics of Pokémon determine how viable moves are?--not only the Pokémon's typing, stats, and ability, but also its interaction with playstyles and momentum.
  • What new strategies might emerge by giving a new OU Pokémon underused moves?
  • What challenges do Pokémon that use lesser-used moves face compared to ones that use a more standard moveset?
  • If the Pokémon has options of staple OU moves (high-powered STABs, offensive stat-boosting moves, reliable recovery, Substitute), will those moves be useful to it, even if it's specialized toward a separate and distinct strategy?
  • Can underused moves increase other underused moves' viabilities?
  • Can one user of a strategy unrecognized in a metagame massively influence a pre-existing playstyle?
Typing: Steel / Flying
Abilities: Intimidate / Volt Absorb / ???
Stats: 50 HP / 92 Atk / 130 Def / 65 SpA / 75 SpD / 118 Spe

My apologies about the short list. I like many of the designs, but I was quite particular about how well the CAP's details fit.
