Houndoom vs Absol
Cool as Mighteyena may be, we all know it can't really hold a candle to Houndoom, so I thought I'd give it a more formidable matchup. Both are Dark type quadrupedal Pokemon that have at least a vague canine-like appearance. Both are inmensely popular Dark types (and Pokemon in general).

I adore Absol. I fell in love with it the second I laid eyes on it... BUT I've loved Houndoom more and I've loved it longer. While Absol easily makes my top 30 list of favorite Pokemon, Houndoom is pretty solidly in my top 5. So I'm choosing the hellhound for this one.
