''[[http://ivnbvn.com/batcap/ Battle [=CAPacity=]]]'' is a freeware fighting game developed by [=Cartoons!=] from Website/{{Smogon}} in 2D Fighter 2nd. It uses fanmade Franchise/{{Pokemon}} characters created by Smogon itself for its VideoGame/CreateAPokemon metagame, but you wouldn't be able to tell without fairly close inspection of the game (or the link in the game credits).

You fight in a true 2D environment, using eleven characters of varying styles and abilities to beat the snot out of the AI or a friend. It can also be played over the internet using Lunaport.

!!Contains examples of:

* AndIMustScream: In Revenankh's ending, [[spoiler: a thief stole his treasure while he was gone, which turn out to be the secrets of the universe. However, the thief must now spend the rest of eternity guarding said secrets.]]
* AnIcePerson: Syclant.
* AntiVillain: Revanankh is bound to serve an entity who is strongly implied to be malevolent. At the end of his Sweatin' arcade mode, he does a HeelFaceTurn.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Kitsunoh gives a BreakingSpeech to the player directly in her ending.
* ConfusionFu: Kitsunoh's primary fighting style. Fidgit also has elements of this due to the variety of ways he can be played.
* DemBones: Skulloton, who is also a robot.
* DishingOutDirt: Colossoil's Earthquake and Fidgit's Earth Power attacks.
* TheEeyore: Voodoom is quite a literal sad sack, and that's reflected in his move names.
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: Fidgit.
* ExcusePlot: Each character has a story as to why they're fighting each other in the arcade mode, but it's pretty flimsy - Syclant is hungry, Revenankh is overprotective, [[CrowningMomentofFunny Pyroak is trying to file a claim of land ownership on the forest he lives in]], Fidgit is ''looking for friends'', Stratagem is protecting his younger brother, Colossoil is embroiled in a contest of machoness with his own horn, Cyclohm is trying to make it rain again, Kitsunoh simply wants to make people suffer, Arghonaut is trying to recruit people into his pirate crew, [[PsychopathicManchild Vitalimar is beating up a group of his own admirers]], Krilowatt is trying to escape Arghonaut's grasp, Cascavian is trying to fix his meditating waterfall, and Skulloton is trying to make the world more awesome (which he interprets as "sticking his face everywhere").
* FlechetteStorm: Syclant's super, Blizzard.
%% * FragileSpeedster: Krilowatt, Stratagem and Kitsunoh. Syclant is of the GlassCannon variety.
* GlassCannon: Skulloton and, to a lesser degree, Syclant.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: Arghonaut.
* HealingFactor: Revanankh's Rest ability lets him fall asleep to recover health.
* HeelFaceTurn: Revanankh at the end of his Sweatin' arcade mode.
* IJustWantToBeBadass: Tomohawk isn't taken seriously by anyone in his opening due to his cute appearance, so he sets out to fight enough until his looks match his fighting prowess.
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: In the game's training mode, you beat up a sack that is [[http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/31/84405455.jpg/ heavily implied to contain a Delibird]] (the only canon Pokémon to appear, and resident ButtMonkey of the CAP project).
* LightningBruiser: Colossoil. While his actual movement speed is slow, his special attacks give him surprising speed and mobility, coupled with large damage and the highest HP in-game; this is balanced by being a large target and lacking ranged moves. Arghonaut is a similar case.
* MeteorMove: Revanankh's Scarab Trap and Kitsunoh's regular throw, both type B.
%% * MightyGlacier: Revanankh and Pyroak.
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Fidgit and Arghonaut.
* NinjaPirateRobotZombie: Chock-full of this. The characters include a mummy guardian ghost, a plantlike dinosaur that shoots fire, a pirate octopus, a Mexican wrestler starfish, a literal cloud dragon, and a ''robot skeleton''.
* PlayingWithFire: Pyroak.
* PokemonSpeak: Naturally. Averted by Kitsunoh and Skulloton (who speak English) and Revanankh and Tomohawk (who [[TheVoiceless don't talk]]).
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: The game deviates from regular Pokémon when it suits it, such as the effectiveness of moves (for example: Rapid Spin, Fidgit's super attack, is a very weak move in Pokémon used primarily for its secondary effect). Most notable is Krilowatt, who despite having the highest HP of all the [=CAPs=] in Pokémon proper, is tied for least health in Battle Capacity.
* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Tomohawk.
* PsychopathicManchild: Vitalimar, and to a lesser extent Fidgit and Colossoil.
* PunnyName: Everyone. These are Pokémon, you know.
* ShockAndAwe: Cyclohm and Krilowatt.
* {{Shotoclone}}: Cascavian is a JackOfAllStats and has Water Pulse, Wing Attack, and Triple Kick as his special attacks.
* [[SkillGateCharacters Skill Gate Character]]: Colossoil. Massive power and a lot of HP make beginners cry, while he struggles against skilled players due to the fact that he can either inch along slowly or zoom around too far, letting the opponent pace more effectively.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Kitsunoh and [[spoiler:Syclant]] are the only female fighters.
* StanceSystem: Voodoom switches between having his needle/sword out or not. With his sword sheathed, he is more of a defensive combatant, and with it unsheathed, he acts more offensively.
* TalkLikeAPirate: [[LargeHam YAAAAARGhonaut]]!
* TalkingAnimal: Most of the characters are animalistic, but behave a lot like people (Arghonaut and Pyroak in particular).
* TeleportSpam: Kitsunoh can do this, depending on how often the player uses her Teleport special. Expect to see it from the AI a lot.
* ThisIsADrill: Colossoil and Fidgit.
* UpdatedRerelease: Cartoons! says that he's working on '[[http://www.smogon.com/forums/converse.php?u=3892&u2=15181 a super secret batcap 2.0 project]]'. On his [[https://www.youtube.com/user/capfight/videos YouTube account]], he has posted videos and downloads of a new ''Pokemon''-themed fighting game called "PKMN Fighter".
* WillOTheWisp: Kitsunoh's Will-o'-Wisp ability.
* WritingAroundTrademarks: While the game is centered around ''Pokémon'' fan characters[[note]]albeit ones made up to experiment with the actual ''Pokémon'' metagame rather than traditional fanart/fanfiction[[/note]], no mention of the franchise is made anywhere in the game or its website, and no canon Pokémon make direct appearances (apart from the implied Delibird cameo in Training Mode). The characters' moves do keep their canon names from the series, however.
