    In terms of design, Otamaro looks more like a baby tadpole. It definitely appears to resemble a human head wearing headphones (hence its sound theme).

    As with Poliwag, yes it has the hypno spiral but I can't appreciate its overall appearance that well. It is quite obvious that Poliwag is just a "generic" tadpole with a spiral on its belly.

    I'm sure many fans are voting for Poliwag for the nostalgia factor, but in terms of actual appearance, I just seem to appreciate Otamaru's design a lot better.

    However, Otamaru's evolution is so "derpy" that I would prefer Poliwag's evolution (Poliwhirl) over it in appearance.

    My votes: Otamaru > Poliwag, Poliwhirl > Gamagaru, and Gamageroge > Poliwrath.

    Of course, this thread is comparing Otamaru and Poliwag. I am one of the few who will ignore the nostalgia factor for the overall theme. Otamaru is my winner here.

    Maybe if Poliwag's design was a little less "generic" (round tadpole that just grew legs with hypno spiral on its belly), I would have picked it.

    Poliwag wins. Once it is a Poliwhirl, you have two options on evolving it.

    I'm very glad there was a "both" option inside here. ;A; Both are adorable, how could anyone choose just one?

    But because this is the Contest Hall...hmm...Yeah, Otamaro. THAT FACE OH MY GOD! I want to hug one! x3
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Based on design, the new one. Poliwag doesn't look as good.

    Otamaro is cute <3 I love its face.
    Poliwag is not that bad, but it is a pokémon that I never cared about.

    I honestly like both of them equally, and especially find each of their final forms awesome looking.
    I love opossums. They shall rule the world. Oh, and I should be more active now.

    Definitely Tympole. That tadpole has the funniest face of the two, and even looks like an astronaut, a jet plane or a train! Seriously, I like how Tympole's family doesn't learn any Ice offensive moves, which is something GameFreak should have done since the beginning, which is to not give Water-types Ice attacks unless they are Ice-type.

    Thanks for reading.
