    Default Tentacruel vs. Jellicent

    vs.

    The two jellyfish! Besides being jellyfish, they have some other notable similarities. They both have two-stage evolutionary chains, both can function as Special walls, and both have pretty unique typing.

    Keep in mind that Jellicent has two forms, one for each gender.

    Which one is cooler?
    Which one is more useful?
    Who would win in a fight?

    My vote goes to Jellicent. He totally looks like the Pringles guy, lol. Using him in Black.

    The female form is OK too.

    I don't think that Tentacruel's typing is unique. Qwilfish is Water/Poison as well, I believe.

    Either way, Burungeru wins this one for me. I'm not wild about the design, but I like the typing a lot. I was hoping for a siren pokemon when they made ghost/water, but this one works too :) I've never liked Tentacruel much (mostly due to my pure hatred of Tentacool), nor do I care for the poison type. Burungeru is the obvious choice for me.

    Tentacruel has tentacles. Tentacles man. What do tentacles plus anime girls plus fan artists equal?

    Ah, this one was hard. I went with Tentacruel because its faster, and I had a better experience using it.

    Tentacruel is faster, somewhat bulkier, and fun to use. Plus I have a shiny one of those and another saved me at the Battle Factory, that's where my experience comes from. :D
    I admit Burungel is quite original, but for now my vote is for Tentacruel.

    Dunno.

    Tentacruel for Kanto Pride! (Also because I have actually used one.)

    The first thought that popped into my head was the McDonalds burger mascots, but he does remind me of the Pringles guy now that you brought it up xD

    Totally Tentacruel. It has :"cruel" in its name. It wins in a heartbeat.
    Which one is more useful?
    I have yet to use the Gen V jellyfish, so I still chose tentacruel.

    Voting for Burungeru, or as I like to call it "the troll of the sea"

    Slap a Water Absorb on that thing and you'll troll more water types then your body can handle.

    I personally prefer Burungeru; it can be used as a Bulky Water easily.

    You're right, Sharpedo is better than both of them, LOL.

    I prefer Tentacruel. I like the concept of a Water/Ghost-type, but design-wise, they blew it with Burungeru.

    It's quite interesting how both Pokemon resist similar types (Fire, Water, Ice, Fighting, Poison, Bug, Steel), and have a spinning relationship: Tentacruel spins, but Burunkeru stops spins. Both of them do get the awesome Boiling Water, great for patching up their lesser Defence stat by casting occasional burns.

    Tentacruel got his/her claim to fame when he/she acquired Toxic Spikes in the 4th Generation, and the fact that he/she is able to ward off Infernape is a plus as well. (S)he's also surprisingly fast, which I admit didn't see coming. With the ability to spin Spikes away as well as placing them him/herself, he/she is a surprisingly effective member on a team. This time around, he/she is blessed with Evil Eye and Venom Shock, as now he/she is able to severely damage the poisoned opponents, which would no doubt be easy when they come into his Toxic Spike trap. Some of his notable support options are: Barrier, Screech, Confuse Ray, Mirror Coat and Knock Off. It's probable that Tentacruel wouldn't cast burns as often, since his/her job is mainly Toxic Spikes.

    Burunkeru is more interesting than I thought. He/she has the rare distinction of having sexual dimorphism, and an even rarer distinction of having a drastic one too. Even his/her typing is very interesting, because both Water and Ghost are inherently great types, and he/she is the first fully-evolved one to acquire that. As expected, Burunkeru is not very fast, but boy, are they very defensive. They have high HP and great Special Defence, no doubt similar to Tentacruel, except they are more defensive (Water Absorb supports this too). Perhaps Burunkeru's claim to fame is his/her movepool. Being a Ghost type gives immediate privileges to the movepool, as he/she gets Shadow Ball, Will-O-Wisp (if you don't want to burn with Boiling Water), Trick Room, Night Shade, Confuse Ray and Evil Eye are great Ghost privileges to have. Some of Burunkeru's other moves are not so bad themselves. He/she also has Water Spout, Energy Ball, Recover and Acid Armour. Recover is especially huge, because he/she is the second Ghost to get it, and is always a great longevity move. It's little wonder Burunkeru is already a very popular Pokemon in Competitive Battling: He/she is very good, especially in conjunction with Nattorei.

    Overall, both have different role, but I myself prefer Burunkeru, because:
    * He/she's a Ghost.
    * He/she has sexual dimorphism, and I especially like the female one more.
    * Awesome movepool.

    Thanks for reading.

    Burungeru has a cool typing, but in terms of looks, it blows meaty chunks.

    Tentacruel FTW.
