    Default Purrloin vs. Poochyena

    vs.


    I've decided to pit these two Pokemon against each other because they have many similarities and differences.

    1. Both can be captured early on in the game.
    2. Both are Dark-type.
    3. Both have one evolution.
    4. One is a feline and one is a canine.


    So, in your opinion, which one is better?

    • Which one do you prefer?
    • Which one is more useful?
    • Which one would win in a battle?
    • Which one has the better design?

    Which one do you prefer?
    Poochyena all the way.

    Which one is more useful?
    Purrloin has some nice support moves, but Mightyena has Intimidate. Hard to tell here, so I'm calling it a draw (they both suck in battle though.)

    Which one would win in a battle?
    Again, hard to tell, though based on their movepools alone, I'm inclined to go with Liepard since it gets the super effective U-Turn in BW2.

    Which one has the better design?
    Poochyena by a long shot.

    I vote Poochyena, though I don't especially like either of them.

    ~Which do you prefer? Poochyena/Mightyena all the way <3
    ~Which one is more useful? Liepard gets Prankster for its DW Ability, and it's honestly more useful than Mightyena.
    ~Which would win in a battle? Depends. Mightyena's Intimidate gives it an advantage, but Liepard's Prankster gives it a different advantage. :o
    ~Which one has the better design? Poochyena is the cutest, and Mightyena is awesome. :b

    I'll choose Poochyena. It is cute and Mightyena is awesome.
    For Purrloin, its OK with its design, but the design for Liepard is not satisfying.
    I can see Purrloin getting U-turn and good speed allowing it to be a good phazer. Or even a Prankster Assist set (I invented this set when I first see it, I tested that set with a friend in PO Smogon server with Victini and Terrakion on the same team, V-Create actually murders in priority, althought it depends on luck :P) may make surprise table-turning in game (Maybe a priority Close Combat it get from Terrakion and KO a Shell Smashed Cloyster)
    Still... I vote Poochyena just because I like its design more.

    Which one do you prefer? Purrloin.
    Which one is more useful? Purrloin o.o
    Which one would win in a battle? Dunno, Poochyena has intimidate, though Purrloin has overall better stats, and neither will defeat the other fast.
    Which one has the better design? Purrloin, though Liepard's normal sprite is ugly.

    Purrloin. I've never liked Poochyena, it's much too weak, even for an early route Pokemon, especially compared to Tailow and Zigzagoon. At least Purrloin has high speed and a couple of sneaky moves that go well with the typical deceptive nature of cats and Dark-types.

    Who is this git?

    Seeing as I don't like cats and I love dogs/canines and Poochyena happens to be one of the few gen 3 Pokemon I like, my vote is Poochyena.

    Liepard is kind of cool though.

    It's your personal opinion, but there is certainly a reason for why you like it more. Please share it with us.

    Ahh, I absolutely adore both Purrloin and Poochyena, so it's really hard for me to decide ;A; But I guess Poochyena, because adorable little puppies > adorable little kittens.

    Poochyena has always appealed to me a lot more than Purrloin for some reason. I haven't found much use for either of them in battle, to be honest, so I'm going for a purely design-wise perspective.

    I've used Mightyena and Poochyena in Wi-Fi battles, and overall they did really well for me. Also, I'm a dog person.

    Poochyena for me. I just never warmed up to Purlion much and I like Mightyena's appearance.

    One is a feline and one is a canine.
    It's Nitpick Time! Hyenas aren't actually canines, the family Hynenidae falls under the suborder Feliformia which contains the felines. Which means they're more closely related to cats than dogs!

    As for my favourite I prefer Purrloin, the design just oozes attitude and it has a ton of fun options to play around with.

    Which one do you prefer? Purrlion of the two of them, but when they evolve, I think Mightyena looks better than Liepard (but I wouldn't call Liepard ugly). *shrug*

    Which one is more useful? Purrlion, or rather, it is more useful when it evolves because it has better speed and you could make it concentrate on special attack and, more specifically, support moves (using its prankster ability). I mean, yeah, Mightyena has Intimidate, but I can think of more uses for the Purrlion line.

    Which one would win in a battle? Purrlion/Liepard eventually as long as the player knows how to play their cards correctly. Uturn is a very good move for this Pokemon.

    Which one has the better design? Purrlion, but I love purple and kittens. ;P
