    Default Ninetales vs. Politoed

    vs.


    The Cunning Fire Fox versus The Clapping, Happy Water Toad!

    The reason these two were put together is due to the fact that they are the most used Dream World Pokemon due to their Dream World-exclusive abilities...

    ~Drought~ and ''''Drizzle''''!

    Who do you prefer design-wise?
    Which is better appeal-wise?
    Who would win in a battle?
    Who do you prefer over-all?
    Which would/have you use/d the most?
    If they had a single battle together with their Dream World abilities, which would win?
    Which is the BEST?


    My answers to these are :

    Design Wise: Ninetales, You wouldn't exactly expect a fox to be fire type, but you would with a frog. (Minus Croagunk/Toxicroak)

    Appeal Wise: Politoed, if this guy were dancing and clapping it's hands, wouldn't it make you feel happy?

    Who would win in a battle? Ninetales, I don't know why, though..

    Who do you prefer over all? Politoed, It's so cute!

    Who would I use the most?: Certainly Politoed with Drizzle, Can't Refuse a good Water Type.

    Who would win in a battle with their Dream World ability? Politoed, with the fact that both Water and Fire moves would deal normal damage, and SolarBeam would be weakened, Politoed could defeat Ninetales after a few good water-type moves.

    Which Do I think is the best? Politoed.


    So, Which do you guys prefer?

    Hmmm, I guess overall I just prefer Politoed over Ninetails. My names for my Politoed and Ninetails are Swirl and Pixelated.

    I hate Politoed and love Ninetales on just about everything. Politoed is far less cute than Poliwhirl and slow too. :(

    Ninetales is really cool and not bad at battles either, Politoed I don't mind but isn't like my most favourite, so it's Ninetales this time..

    Drizzle > Drought, sorry to say. Drizzle is by far the best weather condition and now that it can be used in OU (Kyogre was way too strong,) it tears sh*t up. So much so that they banned the combination of Drizzle!Toed with Swift Swimming Pokemon in Smogon. It was just that awesome.

    Drought, on the other hand, trades in the raw power of Drizzle in favor of more diversity (both Fire and Grass types benefit from Drought. Only Water types and the odd Pokemon here and there benefit from Drizzle.) It, however, hits much less hard and is slightly easier to handle. I believe it is slightly above Sand in the weather tier department (due to sand's lack of usable sweepers. You got Tyranitar the summoner, Excadrill, Garchomp and... that's it.)

    In a battle, Ninetales would easily win if she can keep the sun up. Let's see Politoed beat her with a now-not-very-effective Water attack. The problem is keeping said sun. Ninetales is faster than Politoed (and in fact, all the perma weather inducers, Kyogre and Groudon included) so if they're both sent at the same time, she'll summon the sun first, then he'll cancel it with his rain, putting her on the backfoot.

    So yeah, 9 times out of 10, DrizzleToed will defeat Droughtales.

    That said, Ninetales is one of my favorite Fire types of all time (one of the only few I even like, actually) while Politoed is kinda really forgettable, Drizzle notwithstanding.

    That's why my vote goes to Ninetales. Besides, she's actually useful for something (albeit outclassed) even without Drought. Politoed is kinda generic (mechanically, not thematically) without Drizzle.

    Also? Droughtales is Clorophyll Saur's best friend and anyone that can double my favorite evolved Pokemon's speed just by existing is going to get my vote.

    A very close contest... I love both of these Pokemon. Ninetales just looks awesome, but Politoed has a very strange appeal to it. I'll have to go with Ninetales, though.


    Also, I am offering my services as an Original Pokemon Trainer designer. It's free, but I might need time depending on your requests. PM for details if you are interested.


    Offline possibly for the summer. Don't VM or PM me because I may not see it for a few months.

    Ninetales. Politoed looks a bit... weird.
    Which is better appeal-wise?
    Ninetales.
    Who would win in a battle?
    With their Dream-world ability, Politoed, because it's slower, so Drizzle would activate instead of Drought. In a normal battle, tough, Ninetales could set up Sunny day, weakening Politoed's moves, then KO it with Solar Beam.
    Who do you prefer over-all?
    Ninetales, it was my favorite Pokémon when I was young.
    Which would/have you use/d the most?
    I never used Politoed, but I used Nintales in Emerald, once.
    If they had a single battle together with their Dream World abilities, which would win?
    Politoed.
    Which is the BEST?
    I prefer Nintales, so I'll go with Ninetales.

    Ninetales ranks among my top favorites so through design and appeal, there's little contest for me. That and I've used Ninetales on my team since gen I so I'm quite familiar with how she battles. Ninetales takes all the categories on my vote.

    Before this gen, Ninetales would certainly have it rough against Politoed in type disadvatage and her best trump was Energy Ball.

    But now with Drought in play, 1-turn Solar Beam anyone? >;3

    That, and now that she combos with either of Leafeon's abilities, I'm happier than ever to have her on my team.

    Ninetales.

    Which is better appeal-wise?

    Ninetales.

    Who would win in a battle?

    Ninetales.

    Who do you prefer over-all?

    Ninetales.

    Which would/have you use/d the most?

    Ninetales. I've never used a Politoed before. I've never even had one.

    If they had a single battle together with their Dream World abilities, which would win?

    Ninetales, as long as it was slower.

    Which is the BEST?

    Ninetales ♥

    Ninetales. While I generally prefer Water-types, Ninetales' design and origin are just too cool for me to ignore.

    Who do you prefer design-wise? Ninetales because a fox looks better than a frog.

    Which is better appeal-wise? Ninetales got that beauty.
    Who would win in a battle? Politoed because it's a Water-Type.
    Who do you prefer over-all? Politoed, in battle.
    Which would/have you use/d the most? Ninetales, I really like Fire-Types.
    If they had a single battle together with their Dream World abilities, which would win? I think Politoed would.
    Which is the BEST? Politoed can beat Ninetales.

    Ninetales, Ninetales, Ninetales.
    Plus she can have Energy Ball and SolarBeam to take Politoed out, am I right?
    One of the most beautiful and well designed Pokemon ever, and Drought is awesome on her.

    Politoed is cute but I prefer his cousin.
