Yay, Poll 4! The story thus far:

Mixed Sweeper

Um, whoopee? Can't say any of my picks are getting through, but then that's not really the point. Anyway, this time around we will be voting on base stats. In the interest of making this pokemon both OU and acceptable to Nintendo, the 600 mark will not be broken here. However, by judging the last poll, many usable stats can come out of low totals. This poll will close in three days.

EDIT: Also, find the art competition here.
Whoo! I'm winning! 520-539 for me, because it's balanced, allows for fair distribution of Attack, Sp. Attack, and Speed, and isn't outrageous.
520-539. Leaves enough to have a solid amount in both attacking stats and speed while having defenses that are below average but still passable. Infernape has 534, btw.
520-539 should be good enough, However it doesn't entirely matter how high the total stats are, the distribution needs to be good.
I mean just look at arcanine. Everything is above average, but it doesn't end up helping him too much at all. Now if those stats were just used as maybe 130 attack and 80 special attack and 80 hp and 100 speed, He would be a force to be reckoned with.
Infernapes stats total lower than arcanine, However he has them right where he needs them to be devastating.
550 stats, fantastic distribution.

Come on, we are making a competetive Pokemon here, unless it has Magic Guard as ability, its gonna need those stats.
I went with 540-559. Bug/Ice is not so great on the defensive, so some extra Base Stat Points could really go a long way here.

i supose 540-559 could work so long as it dosent have a stat spread like
cos that would be sooo broken
something like
would be ok (but on the limit of overpowerd) though
