    Question Karate Master's Choice.

    Hi I just beat the Karate Master and now I have to choose between Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan. I was just wondering what some of you guys picked/would pick. If you can tell me why that would be great. =) Please and thank you.

    P.S. I beat them all with one Level 21 Gastly that turned into a Level 27 Haunter by the time I was done. Kind of sad if you think about it.

    Hitmonchan knows the elemental punches if you want to use it in D/P.

    I once picked a Hitmonlee in my red and it turned out great. I was pleasantly surprised in how well it did in Pokemon Stadium when I transferred it.=)

    So I prefer hitmonlee.

    Of course that's personal choice anyway.

    Hitmonlee has better attack and speed while hitmonchan has better defense. Hitmonchan learns more type coverage through elemental punches, but can't use it well due to its abysmal special stat. Hitmonlee gets pretty much just fighting, but can actually use all of its moves well. For non-damage moves, hitmonchan learns agility and counter while hitmonlee learns focus energy and meditate.

    I guess I'd go with Hitmonlee, though really, I'm not sure if I would use either in Gen I, except for the novelty.

    Hitmonlee. I just like it's moves. But c'mon, it's Red. You can win with both pretty much.

    In Generation One, Hitmonlee is the superior Pokémon.

    Well, Hitmonchan has the wicked elemental punches, while Hitmonlee has some brutal kick attacks, but it's up to you what you want.

    Credit goes to PlatinumDude for the sprite.

    Smile Thanks

    Thanks for all of your responses I ended up choosing Hitmonchan because Ive decided that Im going to have Hitmonlee on my Crystal games team. So Hitmonchan was choose for pokedex purposes otherwise I would have picked Hitmonlee. (Im finishing up Red then going to Crystal then Ruby then I intend to play Diamond or Pearl if I can get it.)
