(by snake_rattler)

While I think its stats are too low to function well in the current CAP Metagame, and while there were a lot of bumps along the way, I think this FlashCAP fulfills this concept pretty well. We could have gone down the Beast Boost/Moxie/Soul Heart/Speed Boost route, but people because enthusiastic about the prospect of Stored Power and Power Trip. By choosing Stored Power, Power Trip, and Contrary early, we were able to have not just one but two viable abilities, the second being Stamina. This allowed us to run an offensive booster utilizing Contrary Superpower or Close Combat, while using Power Trip as a powerful coverage move, or a defensive booster utilizing Calm Mind to boost and Stored Power as a primary Psychic-type STAB (Extrasensory was decided to be the next best STAB move), while also having Stamina to increase Defense as well. Overall, we came out on top with a fine, versatile product that, while not too threatening in the metagame due to its stats (the stat bias is correct, just they're too low imo), it fulfills sufficiently our concept in creative ways.

Sun: Living in the coldest tundras, this Pokemon calls upon massive thunderstorms and blizzards to build up its incredible power.
Moon: One of four legendary Pokemon. Its horns are made entirely of ice, and touching them can freeze a person solid.

As my second round of FlashCAP TL, I think this one turned out a lot better than the first (even though Chisphera turned out pretty good too)! In the beginning we wanted to have a non-Ice-type to have better type synergy with Ninetales-A, but in the end the allure of accurate Blizzards and lack of hazard damage netted us an Ice-type, and Electric typing serves as a powerful Secondary STAB. Abilities were mostly straight forward; the only other one that had any merit was Storm Drain but Snow Warning / Slush Rush won. Much like Chisphera, each of its two abilities allows different sets to work. For example, Snow Warning act as a Hail setter and allows it to use Aurora Veil, or it can run an AOA set as a standalone team member. On the other hand, Slush Rush allows it to act as a Hail abuser, taking advantage of its own Hail through the move or with Ninetales-A support. Again, similar to Chisphera, to allow the concept to flourish best, I found it for the best to disallow Ice Beam so that it has to capitalize on Blizzard. Overall, this would be a powerful addition to the CAP Metagame if this were a full fledged CAP with decent bulk, high special attack, good speed tier, unpredictability of sets, unique team support through Aurora Veil, nice offensive coverage, and pivoting using Volt Switch. Well done to everyone who participated!

snake_rattler Damn, I missed another one. I really enjoy the concept behind this Flash CAP. It's nice to see that it's a sub-Legendary, and it's an Ice/Electric-type to boot.

I'm also looking forward to the canon CAP 23.


im dying squirtle

Its not one of my favorite designs per se, but doing an Ice/Electric mon was quite the challenge, so I'm glad the moose was well received. I didn't think of it as a Legendary while designing it, but it fits quite well with other 580 BST legendaries like the Legendary Dogcathamsterbeasts and the Swords of Justice!

Overall very fun Flash CAP, and the first one where I was actually not almost asleep when it came up, so cheers.


this is the day of the expanding man
Fire/Electric, Water/Electric, and Rock/Electric... honestly it would be cool to see mons that could act as setters or abusers for each weather type. I could see them as a legendary quartet, like the swords of justice. Maybe not all meese, but all mammals with those cool lightning bolt patterns.

EDIT: They can be the deities of different biomes or ecosystems. That's something I don't think we've seen yet, and that would be an interesting concept. Sun for the prairie, Water for the jungle, and Rock for the desert.

Nah man gotta be a Fire/Grass moose with Drought and Chlorophyll, a Water/Flying moost with Drizzle and Swift Swim, and a Rock/Ground moose with Sand Stream and Sand Rush. At that's what a few of us decided last night.

We just gotta rig the next 3 flashCAPs ;)

Also I'm firelights btw

That's what I like about CAP. It takes itself seriously, but not too seriously.

Also a cool signature move for the weather mooses would be a move called Storm Horn, which changes type based on weather, so its a better Weather Ball.

Sun: Holloqua have long lost their purpose and are left to only drift aimlessly.

Moon: Creatures of deep sorrow, they are drawn to crying with the goal of soothing grief.

While certainly not experienced in TLing FlashCAPs, I think this project turned out pretty well, and can certainly rival with Elktrolysis and Chisphera. During Ria's time, Emergency Exit was an extremely interesting choice, as it was a decent ability, just without the right user. There were also quite a few other abilities that rallied support such as Rattled, Compound Eyes, and Liquid Ooze, but Emergency Exit was just able to edge them out. Stall was a very interesting choice of second ability, as the reasoning behind was to force players to use Emergency Exit because it had no better options. It is still used in some sets however, as it functions well with the prospect of slowturning in Pokemon that would otherwise have trouble switching in. Its great special attack and good defenses means that it serves well as a Bulky Attacker, being able to smash foes with strong Shadow Balls and Hydro Pumps. Recover is also added to a shocking number of sets, so Holloqua is a truly formidable foe. Some of the more interesting sets used more unique ideas, such as Curse and Dual Screens, which add a bit of variety to the mon. Overall, this FlashCAP would be an absolute beast in the current metagame, with great stats all round and a wide amount of utility in its movepool. The idea of redoing Cyclohm's concept certainly turned out a very interesting product. Thank you so much Ria for this opportunity, and thank you all who participated for making an awesome FlashCAP!

Dang I missed the flashCAP...

Emergency Exit Trick Room actually sounds like the most frustrating thing ever with negative priority lol
After 2 and 1/3 years, the next FlashCAP is finally here!!

(Art by Pipotchi)
Name: Zapparition (by Pipotchi)
TL: Birkal
Concept: Ability Actualization V2 (by Jho)
Typing: Electric / Ghost
Abilities: Serene Grace / Static / Cursed Body
Stats (by Dogfish44): 128 HP / 59 Atk / 87 Def / 120 SpA / 59 SpD / 107 Spe | 560 BST
Movepool (by Dogfish44): https://pastebin.com/raw/HPrBHAsb
Competitive Notes (by me!): Relies on Serene Grace Thunder or Discharge combined with Hex to bust teams wide open. Mainly relies on Psychic and Hurricane as coverage, although it also has access to Tri-Attack. Can also pivot using Volt Switch or set up using Charge Beam or Calm Mind. Other utility moves included are Trick, Taunt, Eerie Impulse, Foul Play, and Will-o-Wisp. Can recover using Parabolic Charge, Pain Split, or Purify. Finally, Zapparition can set Trick Room if snake_rattler desires.

Here's a massive thanks to Birkal, Pipotchi, Jho, Dogfish44, quziel, Wulfanator72, ShunosaurusLii, snake_rattler, Sgt.Moose, Mythlore, Scizivire, Jordy, StephXPM, and Mova (and last but not least myself!!!) for helping to make Zapparition possible!!!!!

[20:12] Reviloja753: No zing Zap
[20:12] pip: ill take it
[20:12] Dogfish44: Physically I'd love to toss on Zing Zap and Shadow Bone
[20:12] SgtMoose: are we going to art too?
[20:12] Reviloja753: Shame
[20:12] Divinity: charge beam?
[20:12] pip: shadow ball and hex are heat
[20:12] Reviloja753: Wait we need stats tho
[20:12] SgtMoose: chairman birkal can you confirm this
[20:12] quziel: physical is also interesting here
[20:12] Jho: shadow ball hex, thunder discharge
[20:12] Jho: volt switch
20:12] quziel: !dt shadow bone
[20:12] Reviloja753: Agreed
[20:12] pip: yea birk how will art work then
[20:12] Dogfish44: 20% lower def
[20:12] quziel: -dt shadow bone
[20:12] BOTPhosphophyllite:
(Pokedex) Shadow Bone
Ghost-Type | Physical | 85 Power | 100 Acc | 10 PP
20% chance to lower the target's Defense by 1.
[20:12] snake_rattler: oh wait
[20:12] Dogfish44: on sbone
[20:12] snake_rattler: shadow bone
[20:12] pip: dou want do to a vote
[20:12] Mr. Preserve: hey guys do demons count as ghosts
[20:12] snake_rattler: 40% i like
[20:12] Mr. Preserve: hypothetical question
[20:12] pip: okay lets think abt stats
[20:13] Reviloja753: Yea we need stats probably
[20:13] Jordy: just uh
[20:13] quziel: granted, physical means we're making rachi v2
[20:13] Jordy: steal a demon from kimetsu no yaiba
[20:13] TwilightWing: so
[20:13] quziel: which ain't necessarily desirable
[20:13] quziel: also
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: special
[20:13] quziel: non=stab attacks exists
[20:13] TwilightWing: we're making it a special attacker?
[20:13] pip: 100/100/100/100/100/100 is my spread
[20:13] pip: no stealing
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: thunder / hex
[20:13] quziel: I dont' think we've decided
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: wait guys
[20:13] pip: :smiley:
[20:13] Divinity: just give it low attack so it has to use shadow bone
[20:13] phosphunosaurus: Let's hope that art polls take
[20:13] snake_rattler: 101 / 101 / 101 / 101 / 101 / 95
[20:13] snake_rattler: @ pip
[20:13] phosphunosaurus: 4 hours
[20:13] Divinity: instead of flinch spam
[20:13] quziel: I find special to be more interesting than flinchbot v3
[20:13] pip: :rage:
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: is it too late to reconsider ability because hear me out
[20:13] phosphunosaurus: Because I have to fly to Chicago see y'all later
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: sure serene grace thunder is cool
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: buuuut
[20:13] pip: ya we already voted mr preserve
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: no guard zap cannon
[20:13] Dogfish44: Special Works because Hex is weird
[20:13] Reviloja753: We slated no Guard already
[20:13] Reviloja753: It lost
[20:13] Mr. Preserve: dang
[20:14] Mr. Preserve: welp anyway
[20:14] snake_rattler: no guard zap cannon is actual satan
20:14] quziel: ye
[20:14] SgtMoose: also zap cannon woulnt need serene grace
[20:14] Mr. Preserve: snake
[20:14] Mr. Preserve: my designs gonna be actual satan
[20:14] Mr. Preserve: B)
[20:14] Reviloja753: Birk help
[20:14] Reviloja753: What do we do
[20:14] Dogfish44: can we also give it Scald? Because we can do that off-STAB :u
[20:15] snake_rattler: discharge / hex / volt switch / coverage y/n
[20:15] Reviloja753: Yes
[20:15] wulfanator72: Energy ball coverage
[20:15] quziel: Feels good
[20:15] Reviloja753: But also thunder
[20:15] Reviloja753: And Moonblast maybe
[20:15] pip: my spread idea is 75/90/100/112/110/83, so it can be faster than things after paralysing them
[20:15] quziel: Could even do pain split last
[20:15] quziel: Or uh
[20:15] pip: as well as switch into hurricanes
[20:15] quziel: Charge beam
[20:15] Divinity: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/247525879113187329/588808736563396608/unknown.png
[20:15] wulfanator72: Purify for heals
[20:15] Reviloja753: I like that spread pip
[20:15] Dogfish44: PFang in that last spot?
[20:15] quziel: Now that charge beam is actually worth using
[20:15] pip: wait im confused what stage are we doing now
[20:15] Dogfish44: wait nvm duh
[20:16] pip: what stage is it?
[20:16] Mr. Preserve: 80/91/85/120/100/90
[20:16] Birkal: discharge / thunder / hex / shadow ball / zing zap / shadow bone / charge beam all allowed
[20:16] Birkal: we'll do coverage later
[20:16] SgtMoose: birk how do we art
[20:16] Birkal: but let's focus on those move especially imo
[20:16] Birkal: pip said he was drawing
[20:16] pip: and charge beam?
[20:16] Birkal: but if a few people wanna draw, that's ok
[20:16] pip: i dont mind doing art poll instead
[20:16] pip: i was gunna draw it cus i figured noone else would
[20:16] Birkal: if you're gonna draw, get started rn
Art begins in earnest below.
20:16] quziel: ok, so stats
[20:16] Birkal: we'll poll if there's more than one
[20:16] quziel: sorry
[20:16] Birkal: stats time
[20:16] Mr. Preserve: rushes to make demon
[20:17] quziel: its worth noting
[20:17] Reviloja753: I like pip’s spread
[20:17] Birkal: I presume we're an offensive mon, yah?
[20:17] quziel: electric/ghost is actually rather good typing
[20:17] pip: :thinking:
[20:17] wulfanator72: Needs decent but not outstanding speed
[20:17] pip: its good offensive typing
[20:17] pip: not good defensive
[20:17] wulfanator72: Make para more important
[20:17] quziel: I hate to bring up NU all the time, but rotom-N is good in NU with incredibly mediocre stats
[20:17] Birkal: it doesn't need speed if it's doing para, yah?
[20:17] quziel: in a hybrid offensive/defensive role
[20:17] quziel: a lot of that is due to levitate though
[20:17] snake_rattler: para halves speed now
[20:18] pip: it will want speed
[20:18] snake_rattler: doesn't quarter it
[20:18] Reviloja753: His spread was 75/90/100/112/110/83
[20:18] quziel: I feel like we might want to sit at like 101ish?
[20:18] pip: just because elec ghost doesnt have a lot of resists
[20:18] Dogfish44: Elec/Ghost needs stuff to be able to switch in. What sort of items are we expecting - Leftovers/AV, or more offensive?
[20:18] pip: rotom is good bc elec + levitate gives it free resists tho
[20:18] quziel: we def want to be faster than the tier's primary ground types
[20:18] pip: which this doesnt have
[20:18] quziel: ye
[20:18] snake_rattler: think about pursuit trap too
[20:18] quziel: ye
[20:18] Divinity: this mon really doesnt like colossoil
[20:19] Birkal: make it faster than weavile
[20:19] Birkal: imo
[20:19] quziel: 105 speed
[20:19] quziel: seems nice here
[20:19] quziel: like
[20:20] Reviloja753: I say we do 89/94/78/113/91/105
[20:20] snake_rattler: continue the electric cap speed creep
[20:20] snake_rattler: 107
[20:20] Dogfish44: Okay what calcs do we need to survive in particular?
[20:20] quziel: 90/70/90/120/90/105
[20:20] Dogfish44: or is it just "gib basic bulk"
[20:20] wulfanator72: Give it a decent physical def
[20:21] quziel: I don't have calc access atm
[20:21] quziel: so am unsure why I am making a spread
[20:21] Dogfish44: lmfao
[20:21] Dogfish44: gimme a calc to survive from 4/252/252 and I can whip up something daft (because BST currently sits in 'legendary' status :P)
[20:22] quziel: I guess a question is
[20:22] quziel: what do we need to 2hko with hex

20:23] quziel: -dt rotom
[20:23] BOTPhosphophyllite:

[20:26] quziel: 50/65/110/120/110/105

[20:29] snake_rattler: do we need it
[20:29] Sandshine: oh are we doing a flashcap
[20:29] wulfanator72: Corrosion
[20:29] SgtMoose: this concept doesnt need a secondary
[20:29] SgtMoose: maybe flavor
[20:29] quziel: flavor secondary
[20:29] quziel: tbh
[20:29] Jordy: give it uh
[20:29] Divinity: merciless
[20:29] Birkal: let's go back to sniper
[20:29] Birkal: imo
[20:29] quziel: I guess static could be cool
[20:30] quziel: as a secondary abiliyt
[20:30] Jordy: yes
[20:30] quziel: to just continue on the
[20:30] Jordy: static
[20:30] quziel: you are paralyzed now
[20:30] Birkal: how does static actualize any moves
[20:30] quziel: theme
[20:30] quziel: it doesn't
[20:30] quziel: well
[20:30] quziel: hex
[20:30] Dogfish44: Static actualises hex sort of :P
[20:30] Jordy: it actualizes hex
[20:30] wulfanator72: Corrosion toxic purify
[20:30] Trox: static sounds fine, imo
[20:30] quziel: also
[20:30] quziel: I vote we give it smellling salts

[20:32] quziel: soz, internet is acting dodgy, and thought I had dc'd again lol
[20:32] Dogfish44: that's the eternal mood
[20:33] Reviloja753: Oof
[20:33] Dogfish44: .... do we need a suggestion to just make a full slate?
[20:33] Reviloja753: But uh yea flavor secondary/hidden
[20:33] Birkal: guys, can we please
[20:33] Birkal: just do galvanize boom
[20:33] Birkal: for me
[20:33] Dogfish44: Any objections?
[20:33] Birkal: don't give it any other normal moves

1) Static
2) No Competitive Ability
3) Galvanize
[20:34] Birkal: VOTE NOW
[20:34] Mr. Preserve: easy 1
[20:34] pip: galv will split the mon too much
[20:34] Birkal: just don't give it another normal move
[20:34] pip: lets focus on serene grave imo!
[20:35] quziel: I might have voted on all three because I don't really mind any of them
[20:35] Birkal: except boom
[20:35] Mr. Preserve: gotta get that sick extra para chance
[20:35] Birkal: omg who is voting static
[20:35] Birkal: you sickos
[20:35] Dogfish44: Static is sorta flavour but also not :P
[20:35] Dogfish44: (£10 on Minus/Plus as Flavour Ability btw)
[20:35] Divinity: i voted galv for u birkal
[20:35] Birkal: ok let's just do static, even though it lost, imo
[20:35] Birkal: because serene grace is way better anyways
[20:36] Birkal: that cool with everyone, or are people against static
[20:36] Dogfish44: BugManiacBirkal :eyes:
[20:36] quziel: works
[20:36] Dogfish44: (that sounds fine)
[20:36] snake_rattler: :(
[20:36] Divinity: static is the flavor ability :eyes:
[20:36] wulfanator72: Static > galv
[20:36] Reviloja753: ^
[20:36] snake_rattler: it lose
[20:36] Birkal: ok let's say no competitive abnility wins
[20:36] Birkal: but static will just win it during flavor imo
[20:36] Birkal: in the fuyture
[20:36] Dogfish44: lmao
[20:36] Reviloja753: Fair enough
[20:36] Reviloja753: We don’t need to discuss secondary
[20:36] quziel: ok
[20:36] Dogfish44: So, movesets!
[20:36] Reviloja753: Just have it be static
[20:37] Birkal: MOVESET TIME
[20:37] Reviloja753: We’ve already done moves tho
[20:37] quziel: -dt purify
[20:37] BOTPhosphophyllite:
(Pokedex) Purify
Poison-Type | Status | 20 PP
Cures target's status; heals user 1/2 maxHP if so.
[20:37] quziel: I think
[20:37] Reviloja753: Or is it coverage time
[20:37] quziel: this is hte only time
[20:37] Dogfish44: now we look at Weird Moves
[20:37] quziel: this move actually works
[20:37] Reviloja753: It doesn’t
[20:37] Birkal: Electric/Ghost
Serene Grace / probably static
discharge / thunder / hex / shadow ball / zing zap / shadow bone / charge beam
[20:37] Birkal: what coverage do we want
[20:37] Divinity: purify
[20:37] Birkal: we haven't picked any counters or checks
[20:37] Mr. Preserve: so uh
[20:37] quziel: I feel
[20:37] Dogfish44: also can someone keep a list of the moves somewhere? movepool making urge intensifies
[20:37] Reviloja753: I assume Moonblast is too much
[20:37] Mr. Preserve: air slash
[20:37] Birkal: so let's just pick a few mons that probably beat us
[20:37] quziel: that we absolutely need some way to hit grounds
[20:37] quziel: like
[20:37] Divinity: ttar soil
[20:37] wulfanator72: Colossoil
[20:37] quziel: this concept is dead if we can't harm ground types
[20:37] snake_rattler: zing zap / shadow bone / thunder wave / focus punch
[20:38] Reviloja753: Focus punch????
[20:38] Mr. Preserve: air slash
[20:38] wulfanator72: Sharp
[20:38] Reviloja753: Are you betting on para
[20:38] Mr. Preserve: wait what atk did we get
[20:38] quziel: actually
[20:38] Birkal: those are all allowed snake
[20:38] wulfanator72: Voodoom
[20:38] quziel: what other 30% para moves are there
[20:38] Dogfish44: Force Palm
[20:38] Divinity: we got 59 atk
[20:38] Mr. Preserve: snake what
[20:38] Birkal: ty
[20:38] quziel: ok
[20:38] Divinity: purify!
[20:38] Birkal: I wanna pick some coverage types for this
[20:38] Divinity: i shouted it
[20:38] Divinity: instead of saying it
[20:38] quziel: so this is gonna sound weird
[20:38] quziel: but poison coverage
[20:38] snake_rattler: ZING ZAPPERINIUM Z
[20:38] quziel: if we get chomper poisoned
[20:38] Reviloja753: I assume no Moonblast?
[20:38] Dogfish44: 30% Para on special moves are... uh, just Dragon Breath :P
[20:39] quziel: it sorta just dies to hex
[20:39] snake_rattler: discharge
[20:39] Divinity: poison fang does that right?
[20:39] quziel: and it preserves ark types as our biggest fear
[20:39] snake_rattler: and thunder
[20:39] Mr. Preserve: flying or normal coverage :)
[20:39] quziel: even with para ttar eats us every day
[20:39] Birkal: I am fine with fairy coverage, personally
[20:39] Reviloja753: Ah really?
[20:39] Birkal: maybe an easier question is what typings of coverage SHOULDN'T this get
20:39] Dogfish44: ... hey Dragon Breath is a great way to whack mons with Para, right?
[20:39] Jordy: give it
[20:39] Jordy: focus
[20:39] Jordy: ty
[20:39] Mr. Preserve: focus energt
[20:39] Mr. Preserve: yes
[20:39] quziel: I feel like our answers should basically be
[20:39] Reviloja753: No ice coverage I feel
[20:39] Dogfish44: Laser Focus pls
[20:39] Divinity: dragon breath is heat
[20:39] quziel: dark types + electric types
[20:39] Birkal: I think we give it all coverage but fighting and ground
[20:39] Reviloja753: No grass either maybe
[20:39] Birkal: imo
[20:39] Divinity: i agree w/ birka
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: no fairy
[20:40] Birkal: sure, no grass too
[20:40] quziel: grass coverage isn't fun, and hurts some matchups
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: if we want ttar
[20:40] Reviloja753: What about ice and grass
[20:40] Dogfish44: "Pursuit" is a nice option for countering us
[20:40] quziel: also
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: or colo or whatever
[20:40] quziel: pease deny ice coverage
[20:40] quziel: I don't want a mon to viably use 20% ice beam
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: well quziel
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: i do
[20:40] Dogfish44: also we're not that bulky we survive eq/sball but only with like 1 HP left :-(
[20:40] wulfanator72: Freeze dry
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: pk freeze time lets gO
[20:40] Birkal: BANNED COVERAGE: ice / ground / fighting / grass / water
[20:40] Birkal: this ok with everyone?
[20:40] quziel: gucci
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: no ice?
[20:40] Dogfish44: sounds solid
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: and yes fairy??
[20:40] Reviloja753: Ye
[20:40] Birkal: fairy allowed
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: dont we want ttar/colo
[20:40] quziel: so what you're saying
[20:40] Birkal: as is poison
[20:40] quziel: is lava plume go?
[20:40] Mr. Preserve: wait. colo is ice weak
[20:41] Birkal: fire is allowed
[20:41] wulfanator72: No flying
[20:41] Dogfish44: also excluding Poison Fang and other 50%ers
[20:41] Dogfish44: can we agree to just discuss special moves
20:41] quziel: also
[20:41] Mr. Preserve: is ice disabled for any reason besides freeze chance
[20:41] Dogfish44: so we don't get another Smokomodo?
[20:41] quziel: what relation do we want
[20:41] quziel: with cap26
[20:41] wulfanator72: Preserve voodoom as counter
[20:41] snake_rattler: ice beam!!!
[20:41] wulfanator72: Lol
[20:41] snake_rattler: freeze hax yay
[20:41] Mr. Preserve: i agree with snake
[20:41] Birkal: ok final thing before I turn you lose in movepools
[20:41] Birkal: I want this thing to have one very good boosting move
[20:41] quziel: you can still get reliable freeze by submitting tri attack
[20:41] quziel: gucci
[20:41] Mr. Preserve: quiver dance hours
[20:41] SgtMoose: charge beam
[20:41] Birkal: but only one
[20:41] Divinity: charge beam + agility
[20:42] snake_rattler: SHELL SMASH
[20:42] SgtMoose: coil
[20:42] quziel: The Nastiest Plot
[20:42] Birkal: shell smash oml
[20:42] Mr. Preserve: cloud smash
[20:42] Jordy: yeah shell smash will be fine
[20:42] SgtMoose: wait no coil
[20:42] quziel: alos
[20:42] quziel: recoveru
[20:42] quziel: yay or nay
[20:42] wulfanator72: Coil
[20:42] Birkal: this mon gets no recovery
[20:42] wulfanator72: Yes
[20:42] quziel: ok, cool
[20:42] Reviloja753: We have charge beam
[20:42] Birkal: parabolic charge tho
[20:42] wulfanator72: What???
[20:42] Reviloja753: So
[20:42] Birkal: is allowed
[20:42] Divinity: gib purify
[20:42] quziel: wait
[20:42] wulfanator72: How dare you cut off purify
[20:42] quziel: can we make an exception for purify
[20:42] Birkal: ok we need to decide a boosting move first tho
20:42] Dogfish44: Purify is good imo, because it's reliant on us doing our thing
[20:42] Birkal: -dt purify
[20:42] BOTPhosphophyllite:
(Pokedex) Purify
Poison-Type | Status | 20 PP
Cures target's status; heals user 1/2 maxHP if so.
[20:42] Mr. Preserve: i say nasty plot
[20:42] Reviloja753: We have charge beam Birk
[20:42] Dogfish44: it also gives us Z-Purify
[20:42] Birkal: sure, allowed
[20:43] Reviloja753: We’re fine
[20:43] quziel: its so dumb, and so cool
[20:43] Dogfish44: which is cool
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: because it goes with my design well
[20:43] Birkal: if no one says anything
[20:43] quziel: Nasty Plot
[20:43] Divinity: agility+charge beam
[20:43] Birkal: I'm giving it shell smash
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: hang on
[20:43] quziel: is the default
[20:43] Reviloja753: We have charge beam
[20:43] Divinity: no straight boost
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: nasty plot
[20:43] Reviloja753: Agility I guess but we don’t need it
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: but also
[20:43] quziel: and lets us do the BW Groudon Paradancer thing
[20:43] Birkal: here's the play, you guys ready for this:
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: wouldnt this mon be really dumb
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: we got parahax
[20:43] quziel: which was always a really fun strat
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: and buff
[20:43] Birkal: Dragon Dance custom move -- but it's +Spe and +SpA
[20:43] Birkal: THOUGHTS
[20:43] wulfanator72: No
[20:43] quziel: honestly, at that point
[20:43] Dogfish44: .... so Quiver Dance?
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: only if its cloud dance
[20:43] Birkal: no, doesn't boost SpD
[20:43] Reviloja753: What about just
[20:43] quziel: it sorta takes away from the para spam thing
[20:43] Reviloja753: Calm Mind
[20:43] Mr. Preserve: cloud dance
[20:44] Dogfish44: Honestly I don't like Speed boosting
[20:44] Mr. Preserve: :^)
[20:44] Reviloja753: Speed boosting is dumb for this
[20:44] quziel: Speed Boosting is sorta antithetical to the concept
[20:44] Birkal: ok I'm fine with CM I guess
[20:44] Reviloja753: Just give CM
[20:44] quziel: our entire design is just like paraspam
[20:44] Mr. Preserve: the point of paralysis isnt to outspeed
[20:44] Birkal: or TAIL GLOW
[20:44] Dogfish44: like I think boosting on this and I kind of think "okay so spread para then sweep at the end once you outspeed everything"
[20:44] Reviloja753: No
[20:44] Birkal: :frowning:
[20:44] Reviloja753: CM is enough
[20:44] Mr. Preserve: its to flex your nagito powers
[20:44] Dogfish44: which leans more CM imo
[20:44] Birkal: alright Calm Mind /Nasty Plot is the strongest boosting this thing can have
[20:44] Reviloja753: No NP
Things learnt below: How the fudge do artists get sketches and designs done so fast when it takes like half an hour to draft a movepool -_-'
20:44] Birkal: Let's see those movepools -- take a hot 5 to write 'em up
[20:44] Birkal: ping me for legality checks
[20:44] Dogfish44: What's the current legal list again? :x
[20:45] Dogfish44: oh wait full movepools?
[20:45] Dogfish44: oh god much pressure
[20:45] Birkal: Electric/Ghost
Serene Grace / probably static
discharge / thunder / hex / shadow ball / zing zap / shadow bone / charge beam
[20:45] Birkal: BANNED COVERAGE: ice / ground / fighting / grass / water
[20:45] Mr. Preserve: lvl 1: ice beam
lvl 1: thunderbolt
lvl 1: nasty plot
lvl 1: pk fire
lvl 3: zap cannon
lvl 1: ghost coverage
[20:45] Mr. Preserve: yes/no?
[20:45] Reviloja753: Any required coverage
[20:45] Birkal: none
[20:45] Reviloja753: Oof
[20:45] quziel: -dt heat wave
[20:45] BOTPhosphophyllite:
(Pokedex) Heat Wave
Fire-Type | Special | 95 Power | 90 Acc | 10 PP
10% chance to burn the foe(s).
[20:45] Dogfish44: Birkal Hurricane, or Hurrican't?
[20:45] quziel: hmm
[20:45] Birkal: allowed
[20:45] quziel: are there any higher burn chance
[20:45] Dogfish44: :D
[20:46] Dogfish44: gimme that 60% confusion
[20:46] quziel: that ain't at ya know
[20:46] quziel: lava plume levels
[20:46] pip: aaa drawing is hard lol
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: 60% confusion??
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: hell yeah
[20:46] quziel: hmm
[20:46] quziel: ok
[20:46] quziel: I think I got something
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: gamer moment
[20:46] Dogfish44: Blue Flare
[20:46] Birkal: pip it can be pretty rough drafty
[20:46] wulfanator72: Are we doing full movepools or sets?
[20:46] Birkal: don't worry
[20:46] Dogfish44: is 20% x2
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: burn chance dumv
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: para time
[20:46] Birkal: full movepools
[20:46] Birkal: I don't believe in sets
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: hey can we give it glare
[20:46] Birkal: glare is allowed
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: might not be that useful but
[20:46] Mr. Preserve: hits grounds
[20:47] Birkal: I'd make your movepool in a pastebin
[20:47] Mr. Preserve: thunderbolt / glare / 60% confusion / ghost coverage
[20:47] quziel: Calm Mind / Discharge / Sball / Hex/ Tri Attack / Purify / Toxic / Hidden Power / Protect
[20:47] Birkal: all allowed and encouraged
[20:47] quziel: Tri Attack is really cool secondary coverage here y'all
[20:47] quziel: it ain't strong
[20:47] Birkal: yeah I wanna see tri attack
[20:48] quziel: but it actually has amazing neutral coverage for us
[20:49] quziel: thanks to how good electric/ghost is from a neutral coverage standpoint
[20:49] quziel: I don't think you need too much else
[20:49] Mr. Preserve: normal hits anything not rock, steel, or ghost if i remember
[20:49] quziel: also tri attack is the best way to get a high freeze chance
[20:49] quziel: for those who are interested in that
[20:50] Dogfish44: aaa I need to find an appropriate early game move asdfjkl
[20:50] quziel: spark
[20:50] Mr. Preserve: I'm voting for any moveset with tri attack
[20:50] quziel: you could do a cool evolve when levelled up knowing tri attack
[20:50] quziel: and screw over the artists by making them draw a 3 headed mon
[20:52] Birkal: here's a soft 5 min warning on movepool subs
[20:52] Birkal: lmk if you need more time
[20:52] Birkal: (just curious -- who's making one? i know df is)
20:52] wulfanator72: More time
[20:52] Dogfish44: need one
[20:53] Dogfish44: like need 10 hours normally :P
[20:53] Birkal: wulf you are?
[20:53] Birkal: WE DON'T HAVE 10 MATE
[20:53] Dogfish44: ... ooft
[20:53] wulfanator72: I'm on level up lol
[20:53] Mr. Preserve: i might as well mention i also ended up making a prevo for mine before i actually made mine
[20:54] Mr. Preserve: helped me not fall into "oops this looks like a NFE"

Name: Eskimamba (by Birkal)
TL: Me!
Concept: Focus Punch Abuser (by quziel)
Typing: Ghost / Ice
Abilities: Prankster / Iron Fist / Unnerve
Stats (by G-Luke): 100 HP / 130 Atk / 78 Def / 67 SpA / 82 SpD / 103 Spe | 560 BST
Movepool (by Dogfish44): https://pastebin.com/raw/wPGJAChr
Competitive Notes (by me!): Uses sheer power combined with Prankster Encore to force scenarios in which Focus Punch can be executed. Ice Hammer is an option for a stronger Ice STAB at the cost of speed. Ice Shard is another alternative to have for priority. Can also use Prankster Taunt or Haze for extra utility if it so chooses. Finally, it, like Zapparition, can go boom like everything Birkal has ever dreamed of.

Thanks to everyone who participated, and sorry it was such a slow process. I appreciate that you guys stuck it out with me.

Thanks to snake_rattler, G-Luke, and Wulfanator72 for helping out, as well as everyone else who participated!! Sorry this one dragged on longer than expected, folks.
A New FlashCAP has arrived!

(Art by Reiga, original version here)​

Name: Chewerm (by Quanyails)
TL: Me
Concept: Materialism (by Gravity Monkey) - This Pokemon makes use of an item rarely seen competitively. During assessment, Pinch Berries (Liechi, Petaya, and Salac) were chosen as the main focus of the concept)
Type: Dark/Poison
Abilities: Unburden/Ripen/Sticky Hold
Stats: 100/72/68/120/108/73 (by quziel)
Complete Movepool: (by Reiga)
10-Stuff Cheeks
15-Feint Attack
19-Acid Spray
24-Poison Fang
33-Bullet Seed
42-Sludge Bomb
51-Gastro Acid

Simple 5-4-5 pattern here.
This flashcap is basically based on a generic apple worm, with some sort of dragon-y elements and a rotting/molding fruit theme. It basically hangs around with this fruit that it bites into to rot and stuff.
There's a couple moves just based on general physical aspects, like yeah its got shark teeth so Crunch and Bite, but a lot of moves are based on the berry/fruit theme, like Fling, Belch, and my favorite, Bullet Seed.
Sucker Punch
Dragon Rush
Poison Tail
Apple Acid
Grav Apple
Bug Bite

Its a worm and those are generally gooey so Amorphous, but its also lowkey snake-y and wyrm-y, so I felt like dragon could still fit. Dragon Rush reinforces this. Incinerate is a bit awkward but its required, and in the end does fit the fruit theme since it burns berries.
Apple Acid and Grav Apple are carryovers from Applin line, they're very fitting but I don't think they deserve being on the main learnset considering this Pokemon doesn't specifically dabble with apples.
08-Hyper Beam
09-Giga Impact
26-Scary Face
37-Beat Up
47-Fake Tears
50-Bullet Seed
73-Cross Poison
97-Brutal Swing
99-Breaking Swipe
00-Swords Dance
01-Body Slam
13-Focus Energy
18-Leech Life
22-Sludge Bomb
27-Sleep Talk
31-Iron Tail
57-Poison Jab
58-Dark Pulse
59-Seed Bomb
62-Dragon Pulse
67-Earth Power
69-Zen Headbutt
72-Power Whip
73-Gunk Shot
74-Iron Head
77-Grass Knot
78-Sludge Wave
81-Foul Play
85-Work Up
91-Venom Drench
95-Throat Chop
97-Psychic Fangs
Dex Entries (by Soul Dew Latias):

Sword: Chewerm injects a special venom into berries that it bites, which acts as a preservative. It also causes the berries to taste terrible to other Pokemon.
Shield: Its taste for berries depends on the area it comes from. Offering it a berry it likes is a surefire way to befriend it.

Notes: With the combination of Unburden+ Stuffed Cheeks+ Petaya Berry, Chewerm aims to sweep the opposing team by boosting its Special Attack, Speed and Defense in a single move. It's typing takes advantage of common Choiced-locked Ghost-types in the current meta like Dragapult and Aegislash, which become set up bait if they lock into their main moves while having a direct way to fight back against common Fairies that trouble other Dark-types. Its good bulk also means that it's capable of tanking many strong Special hits like Focus Blast from Kerfluffle if necessary, to then proceed to sweep, and while its Speed tier is rather mediocre without Unburden , it's still enough to outspeed anything but Sand Rush Excadrill once the ability activates.

Apart from Unburden, Ripen serves as a alternative way to take advantage of Berries. Not only Pinch berries now boost your stats by +2, but other berries like Sitrus and Iapapa become attractive for bulkier sets, although the lack of Speed makes most of this strategies niche at best, especially with the current omnipresent risk of getting trapped by Dugtrio.

Onto moves, Stuffed Cheeks is probably the most important one. During the first stages of Discussion, one of the main problems with using Pinch Berries was that they'd only work at low health, leaving you with no room for error. However, Stuffed Cheeks allows us to access the benefits of Pinch Berries without its main drawbacks, which makes it ideal for this concept. Belch was another easy inclusion, as it synergies perfectly with berries, even though the fact that it can't be used before setting up can be a problem during early game. Recycle is another cool addition which allows you to use your berry again if you are willing to sacrifice a moveslot for it. Earth Power is our main coverage move, mostly to deal with Toxapex, which, unlike Arghonaut and other generically bulky mons, can't be easily worn down. It also helps a lot against Mollux, Excadrill, Tyranitar, and Bulletproof Equilibra. There were some talks about adding Fire coverage, but it was ultimately decided that it was mostly not necessary, although we still added Incinerate as a possible tech to surprise Ferrothorn. Nasty Plot was another move that saw a significant amount of discussion. Some saw it as a way to further boost our SpA to guarantee a clean sweep, others argued that it distracted us from our concept, as with a boosting move, Pinch Berries lose a lot of their value. This move went to a Poll, where it ended up being banned from our final movepool.

All in all, I'm very happy with our final result. I think Chewerm is an excellent showcase of how to use existing mechanics in creative and unique ways. I think there were many parts that could have been improved in retrospect, but that's just the nature of FlashCAPs, we just can't have enough time to carefully analyze which option is the most optimal, so I believe we did our best and should be proud of the final product.

As promised, here are the full logs for the project (thanks Jho for helping me find them). Warning: Extremely long, more than 3000 lines.
