The following thread is intentionally designed as an offshoot of the typical Create-A-Pokemon Project. If you are new to the CAP Project, please read through previous processes to gain a full understanding of what is different here. If you are familiar with the CAP Process, give this policy thread a good read. Join us on Discord if you have any further questions!

Round three, friends! Read through the three selections carefully, rank your vote, and sit tight. We're edging ever closer!

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!

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 the PS! CAP chatroom or the CAP Discord channel.

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.


Here are the entrants for which you may vote:

And here are those options with no formatting (please copy and paste this list for your vote):

Terrain-Based Forme Change​
Starter Trio CAPs​

This poll will be open for 24 hours.

As always, take your time and read carefully through each of the options. Keep the good times rollin'.
Starter Trio CAPs
Terrain-Based Forme Change

These were three of my top four from the last vote, so I'm going to be delighted no matter the outcome :D

Starter Trio will be an incredibly large amount of work, bordering on tiring

Terrain-Based Forme Change

RIP Gourgeist formes ;;

What does Terrain-Based Forme Change do besides Nature Power? What do we learn from it? Next to nothing : / Tapu Bulu just got hit by Jumbao for intense competition, Lele's falling off, and Fini's dead. Koko's the only one going really strong. Not much to work with.

Starter CAPs are predictable and streamlined enough to do most of its process concurrently, so it will take just a little bit longer than Terrain Based Forme, which will have a lengthly discussion about custom stuff and not making them broken.

Hard to pick, but I guess I listed them depending on how many stages get directly streamlined/hampered less.
