    Ninetales. Vulpix is my favourite Fire type, and they're just so much prettier than Arcanine.

    Ninetales is the winner in my eyes mainly because of it's elegant appearance and ghostly aspects. It's DW ability of course makes it even more useful in competitive battle and I usually prefer the special attacker over the Physical attacker.

    I love Arcanine as well again mainly for it's strong aggressive appearance and legendary aspects. It is a powerful Pokemon and would get my vote if it wasn't against Ninetales.

    I like both but Ninetales gets my vote.

    I like Growlithe's movepool more than Vulpix's. I also prefer physical more than special. But Ninetales has access to Energy Ball and Arcanine doesn't. Sure, Arcanine can learn Solar Beam but it'll need to charge in the first turn. Also Ninetales' DW ability is Drought. This is just epic. Now Ninetales can learn Solar Beam without charging and if it needs increasing in sp.attack, give it Nasty Plot. In my opinion this really shows that Ninetales is now on the same stage as Arcanine, even though Arcanine has superior stats compared to Ninetales.

    In appearence, I would pick Ninetales too. It looks beautiful and elegant. Arcanine just looks cool. Also, I like Ninetales' shiny form a lot more than Arcanine's. Ninetales' shiny form is one of my favourite shiny forms out of all the Pokemons.

    Ninetails is ridiculously more useful in 5th gen as a result of Drought whilst Arcanine as pretty effective running a mixture of sets in gen 4 UU. In fact, one of my most successful teams ever utilized Choice Band Arcanine. However, I'm going to go with Ninetails because it also looks far cooler and is linked to Kitsune.

    I'm not interested in which of the two is a better battler, in all honesty. My preferences are never based on that. That said, my vote goes to the bewitching and disquieting Ninetales. The obscure charm that it possesses... Arcanine is miles behind under this aspect. A fox that is said to be intelligent enough to understand human language... that is said to be extremely vengeful and capable of placing horrible curses... that can use its gleaming red eyes to take control of its opponent's mind... that can create illusions... Frankly, Arcanine is nothing in comparison. It's just a fire-spitting big dog with stunning speed that is admired for its beauty. Not so special. Besides, I don't like dogs that much. Especially the big ones, yeah. I hate those.

    Exactly, Ninetales is mysterious, elegant and graceful. Arcanine is "generic badass pokemon #59"

    I like Arcanine's design well enough, but Ninetales just leaves him in the dust.

    The fact that Drought makes her OU worthy while he's stuck in UU is just gravy, really.

    Default Arcanine vs. Ninetales

    In Generation I, they introduced two fire type Pokemon that are thought to be counterparts: Arcanine, and Ninetales.




    * Which one is better in battling, from a competitive or in-game view?
    * Which one looks better to you?
    * Who would win in a battle?

    And most importantly, which one is your favorite? My favorite is Arcanine (Arcanine is my favorite Pokemon).

    Bleh. It's a tie. I love both of them equally, and even though Arcanine has a bit better stats, I still think either one could beat the other depending on how they were used.

    I would guess Arcanine is better competitively, even though I see Ninetales more often with the Drought.
    They both look equally awesome to me. I really like them both.
    Once again, I would guess Arcanine would win in a battle, since it's the better attacker.

    It's hard to choose which one I like better. Arcanine is very cool. I used one in Gold, White 2, and even Red Rescue Team. And I've used Ninetales in Silver, Soulsilver, and Explorers of Sky. And I really like her Kyuubi design. I figure since I love Vulpix a good bit more than Growlithe, just on looks alone, that I'd say Ninetales is my favorite.

    Default Re: Arcanine vs. Ninetales

    I've had several Arcanine and Ninetails throughout my games, but it's hard to say which is better in game, because I've never actually used either of them too much in battle :s

    I can at least say appearance wise, I really like Arcanine. I like how it's a sort of split between a dog and a tiger. I like Ninetails to, but it's design is a bit more plain.

    Ninetales looks amazing and it was perhaps the best looking Pokémon back in Generation I. Also I love its origin. I dislike Arcanine's design, it is so ugly.

    Arcanine. I used to really love Ninetails, but I feel its only purpose is to set up Sun and nothing else. At least Arcanine can attack. u_u Though on a scale of who looks cooler, I can't decide, since they both look pretty awesome. xD;
