The October patreon vote begins in a few days - the 25th! The final day to participate is the 24th. The roadmap has been adjusted based on new development expectations, moving the October winner into late November instead of December (among other things, see for yourself). Looking ahead, though, the November vote will be a showcase competition, this time.
handful of starter pokemon will be competing to show off in front of the
camera. Voters will be allowed to pick two answers, out of five, and
the top 2 winners will get a place in showcase lineup.
They are: Serperior, Charizard, Bayleef, Grovyle, and Swampert
