    Exclamation Staryu and Starmie vs. Elgyem and Beheeyem

    and vs and


    As you may know, many Gen V Pokes share more than a few similarities with the original 151, and the Elgyem (Riguree) line is no different. But why match it against the Staryu line? Because...
    THEY'RE BOTH ALIENS.

    Well, okay. Not exactly aliens-they're still Pokemon-but they both exhibit odd behaviors, and have unusual appearances, even for Pokemon, which make many wonder if they really are aliens. They also share the Psychic-type, the Elgyem line being pure Psychic and the Staryu line being Water-Psychic.

    So...
    Who is cooler?
    Who looks more like an alien?
    Who is more useful?
    Which one would win in a battle?

    Take your pick.

    (NOTE: I do not really believe that aliens are hiding on Earth, but I do admit there may be life on other planets.)
    I ran the now-defunct Claim-a-Move Thread. I also claimed Lightning Strike, Marshtomp, Motor Drive, Magic Guard, and Azure Flute (probably also expired, but who cares, as long as you know that I'm the ruler of everything).

    In the 2012 era, I have unfairly won America*'s Warrior Cats Mafia (and a few ones before).

    Who is cooler? I say Elgyem and Beheeyem
    Who looks more like an alien? Never seen an alien, but I'd think Elgyem.
    Who is more useful? I havent used them yet.
    Which one would win in a battle? Not entirely sure. See above.

    Overall, I like Elgyem and Beheeyem better, and they're some of my favorite Gen. V Pokemon overall. I never really like Staryu or Starmie.
    I love opossums. They shall rule the world. Oh, and I should be more active now.

    I've been a fan of Starmie for quite a while, due to a good design and solid usefulness in the field. To be fair, though, Elgyem and Beheeyem haven't had time to grow on me or be used yet.

    Who's cooler?
    Staryu and Starmie because of the Water typing. Personal reason.

    Who looks more like an alien?
    Elgyem and Beheeyem obviously resemble the stereotypical image of an alien more.

    Who's more useful?
    Haven't had the chance to use Elgyem and Beheeyem yet. So, Staryu and Starmie.

    Who would win in a battle?
    Same as number 3.

    Ultimately, my vote goes to Staryu and Starmie.

    I believe I haven't been clear about the "Who looks more like an alien?" question. By that, I meant which one best represents what you think an alien would look like if you were to ever see one.

    Starmie is a beast in competitive play and I don't really like parts of Beeheyem's design, so I vote the Staryu line.

    Who looks cooler?
    Starmie and Staryu. Ive loved Staryu ever since Misty first used it, and Starmie spinning looks like it could cut through anything. Elgyem is cutest, for sure, but not coolest.

    Who looks more like an alien?
    Hard to answer this, really. They all look alien, as do most Pokemon, but I suppose if I had to choose, Id say Elgyem's line. They're more sterotypically alien.

    Who is more useful?
    Well, my Starmie in SoulSilver is indispensable. I wouldnt have beaten the E4 without it, and it is my 2nd Lv 100 trained and caught in SS. Ice Beam, Psychic, Waterfall and Surf are enough to take down any opponent. Plus, havnt used Elgyem, so Im gonna say Starmie, coz it can be Surfed on.

    Who would win in a battle?
    Im not sure of Elgyems stats, but Id go with Starmie. Dual typing provides more scope for STAB, and Starmie are bloody fast, so they will strike first, and leave the little guy coughing up flourescant blood.

    My vote = Staryu/Starmie.

    Who is cooler?

    Starmie is nice, I loved it's design since when I was a child.

    Who looks more like an alien?

    Elgyem and Beheeyem, of course.

    Who is more useful?

    I dunno, never played with one of them.

    Which one would win in a battle?

    I think that the stars would win in a battle.

    My vote = Staryu and Starmie... Although I loved Beheeyem design and I'm looking foward to see it in anime :)

    Riguree and Oobemu are pretty much confirmed to be actual aliens (having suddenly appeared in Unova 50 years ago). I like their design better as well, so I'm voting for them.

    Who is cooler?

    I've always loved dual types, and Starmie has been useful before

    Who looks more like an alien?

    Elgyem and Beheeyem (duh)

    Who is more useful?

    No idea, due to a lack of Elegym and Beheeyem

    Which one would win in a battle?

    I'm going for Starmie and Staryu. High speed and double typing = first strike and high chance of STAB.

    Staryu and Starmie all the way. I've lost count how many times they tore through my opponents with their bolt-beam+surf combo.

    Who is cooler? Elgyem and Beheeyem. I like their colourful appearance.
    Who looks more like an alien? Elgyem and Beheeyem, but I've never seen an alien.
    Who is more useful? Starmie. Starmie is a great Pokemon to use. It's a fantastic Rapid Spinner and its offensive stats are also great.
    Which one would win in a battle? I'm not sure, but I think Starmie.
