    What does HP Electric mean?

    Milotic, hands down. Because he's so hard to find as a Feebas, it makes raising and training one feel far more fulfilling than just "get to level 20 nao plzkthnx". I actually LOVE making PokeBlocks and Poffins! I feel like a trainer actually would, making treats and such for my Pokemon to eat! There was a time I could make even a wrong-matured Feebas become a Milotic!

    So for me, definitely Milotic. And for fucks sake, stop calling Milotic a "female" counterpart for Gyarados just because of beauty. That gets me so eurgh. ._.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Haha, you probably think I'm so biased for this, that it isn't funny. This is not the case, and I'll try best to be objective.

    Who do I perfer? If it wasn't obvious before, I perfer Milotic, mainly due to beauty, rarity, usefulness in contests and is harder to evolve than your simple Magikarp. Plus, no quad-weaknesses, unlike Gyarados.

    Who is more useful? Depends. I usually like my teams offensive, but a Milotic is good for team balance, in my case.

    Who wins: In most cases, if applicable, an Electric-HP Milotic, but also, due to Gyarados' not-so-special SA, if we're breeding with Corsolas to get the desired Milotic, Milotic spurns Gyarados' Thunder with a Mirror Coat, and can put Gyarados to sleep with Hypnosis. Due to Milotic's high defenses, it surely would live the Thunder (given natures, IVs, and EVs, of course). Plus, Leftovers/Aqua Ring, just to be annoying, helping recover HP.

    Full Disclaimer: Despite my username, I frequently use Gyarados as my water-type, rather than Milotic. I would love to say I have had the fortune of finding a Feebas at some point in my playings, but this is not the case.

    I find it also interesting to note that these two share similar reversed base stats:

    540 Total Base Stats, for Both.
    HP: 95, for both
    Gyarados' Attack and Milotic's SD: 125.
    Both have 79 Base Regular Defense.
    The same Base Speed, 81, is also shared.
    60 is the Base Attack for Milotic, the same number it is for Gyarados' SA.
    100 represents Gyarados Base SD, while 100 is Milotic's base SA.

    Given I'd breed (and soft-reset for nature) correctly, Milotic wins. A lot has to go right for that to happen, so, in a fight, in my opinion, Gyarados will usually have the upper hand.

    (Any ideas if we can get Lance's R2 Gyarados to battle Cynthia's R2 Milotic? It'd not only be epic, but help settle the score.)

    I definitely like Gyarados, 'cause he's a badass dragon. I still think Gyarados should've been Water/Dragon instead of Water/Flying.

    Gyarados.

    Good stats, typing, movepool etc. An offensive threat when used properly.

    Milotic for the defensive approach. My Milotic's Sp. Def is over 250, Thunder doesn't even take her out. Toxic and Hydro Pump = muhaha.

    Oh yeah, she's prettier too ^^ and she can learn Mirror Coat through breeding. Sure, it's hard to obtain a Feebas and then evolve it, but it is sure worth it if you're more of a defensive Trainer.

    I prefer Gyarados by far.
    With a Milotic, you can just grab a Feebas and give it poffins or whatever, and you're away.
    But with Gyarados, you either have to go through hell levelling up a Magikarp, or get far enough in the game to obtain a super rod, by which point the only thing Gyarados will ever be useful is for filling up your 'dex.
    But, if you obtain both a Magikarp and Feebas early in the game, you'll probably see;
    1-Magikarp evolves first
    2-Milotic is useless in offensive battles, especially with higher levels like your rival or legendaries
    3-Gyarados has a better moveset

    The only people who would want Milotic over Gyarados is those who can't level a Magikarp or compete in contests more than gym battles.

    Can't remember how, but I know I took out Cynthia's Milotic pretty easily. Bearing in mind all my pokemon were at the time lvl45 - lvl 52.

    Oh, hahaha. Is it because of my Magikarp vs. Feebas thread?
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Presonally, I prefer Gyarados.

    But if they were in a battle... standard Gyarados would probably fall to Milotic, since most of them have Toxic or Hidden Power Electric. It's enough of a wall to take Gyarados' hits, even after a couple of Dragon Dances. The kind of Gyarados that could win (factoring out HP Electric) is Rest-Talk Gyarados. Even if it only has Waterfall as an attack (Dragon Dance is essential), it could laugh at Toxic (Resting it off) and almost always get 6 DDs up. Then it proceeds to devastate, hoping that Waterfall will make Milotic flinch.

    In most cases, though, Milotic wins, unless Gyarados already has multiple Dragon Dances when it comes in.
