FlashCAP 2 of Sword and Shield

Name: Horusands (by Gleeboop)

Horusands is an interesting CAPper, as it takes a unique spin on the classic offensive Ability Protean, and decides to exploit its type changing potential defensively. Throughout the process the main struggle was to balance our innate offensive potential with our desired defensive objective, which led to interesting choices throughout. With stats, our goal was to pick a typing that had strong enough defensive value in and of itself, specifically having key immunities and resists to switch in on and having as less of an issue regarding hazards as possible. After a nail biting poll, Flying / Ground was chosen for its great resistances to typings such as Fighting and packing an immunity to both Ground and Electric, typings carried by top tier threats such as Zeraora, Rotom-Heat, Excadrill and Equilibra. We also had an experiment of our own, at the suggestion of quziel, called the Defining Moves stage, in which we determined what moves help to define and best serve the concept and these were done so that we hada good idea of what tools our Protean CAP could utilize when we moved to the next stage, Stats! Stats were next, in which MVP quziel's unique spread that optimized Drain Punch drainage and Pain Split healing was ultimately chosen as the winner. After which we finally did the rest of the Movesets, and we decided that the combination of boosting our good stats + Protean robs the concept of the defensive value and use, and thus was banned. Calm Mind was eventually banned for similar reasons as well as preventing a "Double Dancing" set from being too overbearing. Pivoting moves were finaly axed as they forced us out denying the CAP from actually using the defensive benefits of the type change, and was deemed anti concept.

With a plethora of good options Horusands will most likely serve as a bulky Sr setter or as a defogger, and thanks to Protean, the list of Pokemon it can check are largely up to the user's disposal, even having tech like Overheat to catch Ferrothorn offguard. Sets like the ID BPress give a whole new meaning to the playstyle, as with its combination of moves, CAP 27 can swap out weaknesses on the fly, making it especially hard to take down once it gets going. More offensive sets like Taunt + dual STABs, Moonlight + 3 Attacks and hazard control popped up too.

Once again I'd like to thank Jho and cbrevan, our esteemed Room Owners who were on hand and helped us get this FlashCAP running!

I have most of them stored in a database.

This is the steel/flying


This is cnidali's

I don't have Chamereon's recolors, sadly.
These are NOT the original artworks. The original links break on the forums fsr, which is why you saw the broken ones.
 
FlashCAP 2 of Sword and Shield
Did this guy get a level-up movepool at any point? I can see that he got some sets but I'm wondering how he would come to learn half the moves in his pool. I know it's just a quick thing but the flavour is what I look forward to the most.

Alrigtht, FlashCAP 3 of Generation 8 has arrived: Seraphleur (UB Descent)!


(Art by Pipotchi , name by Gleeboop)

Concept: Limited Time Warranty - This Pokemon excels at using moves that have limitations on how many times they can be using (by quziel)
Typing: Grass/Ground
Ability: Beast Boost
Threat List:
- Switch Ins: Toxapex, Tapu Fini, Swampert, Slowbro, Slowking, and Hippowdon
- Pressure: Zapdos, Tornadus-T, Volcarona, Moltres, Magearna, Melmetal, and Heatran
- Checks and Counters: Latios, Latias, Tomohawk, Corviknight, Hydreigon, Blissey, Dragonite, Miasmaw, Weavile and Syclant
Stats: 83 HP / 61 Atk / 113 Def / 127 SpA / 73 SpD / 113 Spe (by Mr Geets)
Moves: Meteor Beam, Stealth Rock, Earth Power, Thunderbolt, Agility, Leaf Storm, Giga Drain, Energy Ball, Taunt, Body Press, Air Slash, Gravity, Substitute

Dex Entries (by Gleeboop):

Sword: This Ultra Beast is rumored to have wiped out an entire civilization. Its meteor showers can be faintly seen at night.
Shield: Seraphleur's meteor showers are said to bring certain doom to civilizations it feels are immoral. Its presence makes soil more fertile.

Notes: After the concept was voted, it was decided that we'd chose which move to focus during assessment, many moves like Steel Beam, Head Smash, No Retreat, and Explosion; however, people quickly jumped into the Meteor Beam bandwagon, as that was definitely one of the most interesting routes to take thanks to its unique combination of SpA boost and high power. On typing, many were discussed, including Poison/Ground, Rock/Ground, Bug/Ground, Ghost/Ground, Rock/Fighting, Psychic/Fighting, and Grass/Fighting but in the end, Grass/Ground won.

On abilities, Beast Boost was chosen, as the ability to snowball after a kill seemed like a good way to justify using Meteor Beam. Interestingly enough, this had the side effect of making this our first Ultra Beast (Flash)CAP, which of course, meant that this would be our only ability and our stats would be prime numbers. Speaking of stats, given our threatlist we choose to go with high physical and mediocre special bulk, alongside some pretty generous offenses to gives us a good initial power without having to use Meteor Beam first. Finally on moves, apart from basic STABs and Meteor Beam, Thunderbolt and Air Slash were chosen as our main coverage moves. Stealth Rock, Agility, Body Press, Taunt, and Gravity were also included as other options that could be uses without interfering with our focus on Meteor Beam. We didn't set on any full movepool yet, although Mr Geets already made a pretty good one here, which might become the final movepool if no one else submits anything.

Thanks to everyone that participated on this. Hopefully we can do more FlashCAPs in the near future!

Gen8's third FlashCAP becoming an Ultra Beast was quite unexpected. Can't wait to see what the next FlashCAP could be!

We just did a 1v1 Flashcap, TL'd by cbrevan

Name: Tormentoise (by Jewvia)
Concept: Make a torment user for 1v1
Typing: Poison/Dark
Ability: Multiscale
Stats: 80 HP /125 Atk /92 Def /60 SpA /90 SpD /103 Spe

Moves:
Torment, Protect, Gunk Shot, Poison Jab, Darkest Lariat, Tickle, Encore, Taunt

We'll be taking name subs here and I'll poll them on PS later.

Edit:
Name Submission History:
I love this guy! I'd like to sub the name: Turment
I'll sub Torturtle (Torture+Turtle)
Looks like a cool Flashcap. I'll sub the name Tormentoise (tor-MEN-tuhs, Torment + Tortoise). I like how when I say that, it also sounds a bit like menace (MEN-uhs) which is what this will be to all 1v1s out there.
Submitting Shellion (shell + hellion, also possibly skeleton)
Submitting Terrortuga (Terror + Tortuga, Spanish for turtle)

Notes: After we chose our concept, we needed to determine what "hindering situations" we wanted to focus on: getting statused, the opponent boosting, or the opponent setting/removing entry hazards. We determined that getting statused was the most interesting way forward, as BDSP CAP plays host to a number of Scald and Thunder Wave users. The typing stage had quite a few options submitted, and a general trend popped up of Water- and Dragon-types being popular for their Scald resistance. Water / Normal was chosen on the back of a wave of support for STAB Facade, which we found to be very pro-concept. We then went on to determine the ability, which came down to Marvel Scale vs. Synchronize. We wanted a defensive/utility leaning ability, and while Marvel Scale is undoubtedly stronger, we early on determined that we did not want this Flash CAP to become a status Orb user; accordingly, Synchronize won. There were quite a number of wild stat spreads submitted; however, two incredibly high HP spreads stole the limelight. quziel's spread notably outpaces Togekiss, a Pokemon we identified early as something this Flash CAP should beat. It also features enough Special bulk to switch into Latios, and while its offenses are impressive, it cannot OHKO Breloom, one of this mon's best offensive checks. In the move selection, we notably banned 16 PP recovery, as we felt it would be overbearing with this level of bulk. Heal Bell was probably the most pro-concept move, and immediately was included. After that, Razor Shell was approved to give this mon a way to consistently break Unaware Clefable, and Seed Bomb was given as a means of pressuring Slowbro and Gastrodon while retaining Empoleon as a defensive check. Finally, U-turn was given to make the mon more splashable, letting it stand out from other bulky Water-types.

Overall, I had a lot of fun with this mon! It sorta turned into a giga-Bibarel, which is absolutely amazing. This was truly a blast, start to finish, thanks for participating!
