    Default Shinx vs Mareep

    Yet another comparison thread. You guys must be getting tired of these by now.

    versus

    This thread is for the Shinx and Mareep evolutionary lines.
    Both of these Electric-type Pokemon are three-stage evolutions, and appear as common Pokemon in their respective regions.

    Which one do you think is better...

    ...competitively?

    ...in terms of cuteness?

    ...by some other criterion?

    Your vote.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    For me, it's the other way around. I only like Shinx out of its line, and as for Mareep, I like it the whole way through.

    Actually, I didn't even know Ampharos existed before playing through Gold. I thought Mareep evolved into Flaaffy and that was it.

    Actually, Ampharos is much more useful than Luxray competitively. She has a great Sp. Atk stat and moves to abuse it with. Luxray's strength lies in his physical attack, where the best STAB move he's got is... Spark.

    Aesthetically, I'm going to go with Luxray though. I like lions more than sheep.

    In general, I prefer Luxray but I do acknowlege that Ampharos is more useful

    I like them both pretty equally, so I voted the last option on the poll.

    Competitively - Shinx will win over Mareep. I may have a tougher time deciding if it was Ampharos vs. Luxray.

    Looks - Shinx is alright (I dislike Luxio's looks), but it isn't 'cute' by any means. Mareep is a fluffy sheep, even if it has electric powers.

    Overall - Both are fine. I like Mareep over Shinx, but I like Luxray over Ampharos. So it's kind of an interesting situation.

    Well, I've never owned an Ampharos...So I wouldn't know. I'm more used to using Luxray.

    Shinx just seems cooler to me. And lions eat giraffe-sheeps in real life, right?

    Zekurom, are you trying to be funny? Because you're not.

    I prefer Mareep's family, to be on topic.

    Nah, wasn't really trying to be funny. Just trying to make a point.

    But if you want me to be on topic, I just prefer Shinx. I like the Shinx line's movepool better. And I never really got to use Mareep because I had Crystal.

    Not using the English names? These threads have reached a new level of stupidity.

    I was actually referring to Zekurom using Japanese names. Sorry for the confusion.

    Competitively - Mareep/Ampharos, way better movepool, lacks speed but still...

    Looks - Shinx/Luxray, no dobut.

    Overall - Actually I've got mixed feelings, I used them both but just in-game, both helped alot in team. However I go with, Shinx/Luxray, more appealing.

    Competitively: My sweet widdle Lucky and my ADORABLE widdle Maria would end in Lucky winning. He knows Return. Return. Owns. You.

    Looks: SHINX! LUXIO! LUXRAY! They look awesome~

    Overall: Shinx.

    And yes, I nicknamed my Luxray Lucky... because he is.

    Everybody do the Nya-kachu!
