    Default Diancie vs. Hoopa vs. Volcanion


    [click on an image to go to the respective Serebii page]


    The three legendaries in XY that are seperate from the Mortality Duo/Trio (many people group Zygarde together with Yveltal and Xerneas, including myself). None of them are currently released, being event legendaries, with Hoopa and Volcanion having yet to be even officially revealed. Which one of them is your favorite?


    I prefer Diancie by a goddamn landslide, it's actually my favorite legendary Pokemon. It's the only one of the three which I consider to have a good design, I'm not a fan of Hoopa or Volcanion, design wise (Hoopa has some nice lore and a cool personality). Its kawaii levels are off the charts and it personally reminds me a lot of Sailor Moon...not that I'm a Sailor Moon fan, I just like anime girls lol. It also helps that I'm a big fan of both crystals and Carbink.

    Edit: Mega Diancie owns my soul

    Volcanion reminds me of a Mega Man X3 boss, Godkarmachine O Inari. That alone is enough reason to vote for it.



    Plus, the Fire/Water-type is far more interesting than the typing of the other two legendaries in the poll.

    Personally, I think they all look quite ugly, though there are certainly worse.

    I suppose it's a tie between Hoopa and Volcanion, if only for their unique typings.
    and that's the story...

    Quite a mixed bag. Looks-wise I like Diancie best. Lore-wise Hoopa is by far the most interesting. Battle-wise Volcanion seems pretty good with nice stats, the better Type combination and the best signature Move. Usually a Legendary Pokémon has to be appealing in all 3 areas for me to like it, so it's kinda impossible to choose between the 3.

    Guess I'll go with Volcanion. It's looks are so-so, but I'll give it a chance. There's not a lot in terms of lore either, but maybe it will be explored later on, hopefully. At least it has more than Diancie for sure.

    Of these three, I much prefer Hoopa.

    Diancie's not interesting to me because it's a fairy, and the design of fairies aren't quite appealing to me, unless you are talking about Clefable and family. Its type combination is not my favourite either, mainly because of Rock. It doesn't seem interesting battle-wise (not being able to combat Steel-types is an issue). Volcanion is better battle-wise from what we know, though its design doesn't interest me either.

    Hoopa is somewhat more interesting in design, for it looks like it is Chinese-inspired and is black hole-themed. Its lore is interesting from things as well. The type combination is problematic in one way, but somewhat beneficial in some ways. It doesn't have the best matchups and ability, but it looks to be a powerhouse, with that power it could use the Shadow Ball and Focus Blast with lots of power.

    Thanks for reading.

    Diancie by a landslide for me, too. She's adorable and has a fantastic design. Gets points for being a Fairy-type, in general. It's also just cool that it came into being from a mutated Carbink.

    The other two are fine, with Hoopa having some awesome lore and legends surrounding it and Volcanion having a unique typing, but Diancie is hands down just better looking.

    Volcanion with Hoopa as a close second. Volcanion has the coolest name, an okay design, the coolest typing.
    Hoopa is funny.
    Diancie is ugly and boring.

    Mega Diancie is definitely the most powerful revealed so far, but we never know the others might get Megas too?

    Volcanion would probably win in battles.

    As for Hoopa I dunno, my opinion will probably be formed by it in the cartoon/movie. I didn't like Shaymin until I saw the film and I fell in love, I think if Hoopa is a right lil Trickster/Prankster type, I could fall in love again.

    Toss up between Dianice and Volcanion, not really sure which one.

    Diancie would have been more interesting if it had just been a random super-rare pokemon you encounter with no explanation. Like Heatran. Heatran is cooler because there wasn't a movie about a talking Heatran. So that's my biggest complaint with Diancie, its prominence.
    It's still a 7/10 on good ideas though.

    Hoopa is cute and has an interesting appearance and typing. It seems like something you would encounter in a sealed tomb while treasure hunting. And there's a possibility that it could be found on Mirage Island and is responsible for the island's behavior, which is pretty neat. 8/10 until we get more information

    Volcanion had a lot of potential, I think. But steam explosions is not really... exciting I guess. His tube still looks really awesome. 6/10

    I do think less of Diancie because of the anime movie, but if we disregard that, she's my favorite. I think. But it's close with Hoopa's cuteness.

    Diancie for me. The design for it is so pretty, and I'm excited to see them actually launch it into the games and what all it'll do. :)

    Volcanion. I don't remember much of the details, but he has interesting design, lore, and type. Especially type. Diancie's cool too, but being related to a Pokemon (Carbink) yet not being gameplay related is just baffling to me.

My signature needs work...

    I wasn't a fan of any of them, until Diancie and Hoopa got improvements. Diancie's Mega Evolution is beautiful, while Hoopa-Unbound is badass. Of the two, I'd say I like Hoopa-Unbound the most, and I'm still not really too fond of Volcanion.

    I have claimed N's Castle's theme, Sovngarde's theme, Aurorus, and N.
