    Default Empoleon vs Samurott

    Empoleon vs Daikenki

    VS


    With the advent of Black and White, Empoleon was succeeded in the Water Starter role by Samurott. Much like with Feraligatr, the two have some similarities, namely the similar special attacks. Samurott's also faster, but Empoleon has better defenses.

    So, who'd win?

    Who's your favorite?

    Who's more useful?

    I'll vote for Empoleon here. I come to this conclusion for two reasons. Number 1, the two of them are pretty evened out when it comes to stats and though Samurott has better Speed and Attack, Empoleon has MUCH better typing. The Steel/Water combo is unique and it gives Empoleon a list of twelve resistances (if memory serves). This thing can tank even when it doesn't mean to. Number two: It's a bloody penguin. How can you say no to that?

    Daikenki. Even though Empoleon is better metagame-wise, it cannot match up to the awesomeness.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Daikenki for me. I never liked Empoleon, and Daikenki looks so cool.

    Empoleon FTW!!!!

    Daikenki is very awesome, yes, but Empoleon is more awesome since since it's a steel penguin. Plus, it has the better stat distribution.

    I chose Daikenki, again, again, again. While Empoleon was cool and stuff, I see promise in this Pokemon to have a game-changing move(s) in the third version of the game, like how Scizor got a game-changing move back during Platinum.

    Empoleon has many weaknesses; one of it's strong points.

    Empoleon. Heck, he's a freaking penguin, and penguins own! Daikenki has no chance.

    Empoleon was my first pokemanz, so definitely empoleon, and he also has a lot of resistances with his second typing.

    Though Empoleon is by far an awesome Pokemon, I have to give the edge to Daikenki as it's an awesome awesome Pokemon.

    It's like a big horse or something with a fricking horn, that is awesome, though Emp is a penguin the edge just barely goes to Daikenki. If Daikenki had no horn, Empoleon would win hands down.

    I really like Empoleon, but Daikenki's creative background is very, very appealing to me. The samurai sea lion-otter... thing wins it for me.

    Daikenki. I always disliked the Piplup line, and Mijumaru has really come a long way. Plus, I like Daikenki's looks.
