    Torterra vs Serperior

    VS


    Finally, after what must have felt like decades, Torterra's finally done being the latest Grass Starter. He's now available for nostalgia, much like his bretheren. Replacing him in novelty is Serperior, the Isshu Grass Starter.

    Now, I'll be honest, these two don't have a lot in common, so let's just skip straight to the part where you tell me which one's best, yeah?

    Which do you prefer?

    Which is more useful?

    Who'd win in a fight?

    Love Torterra. Love Serperior. Hard choice for me as they're both my least favorite Grass Starters (still love them both to bits) but I haven't actually given much thought into comparing them. I think I'll choose Torterra though. Mostly for that delicious unique Grass/Ground typing. Oh, also, his stats don't utterly suck balls. STAB Earthquake really helps too.

    I second you in the loving them both thing. I love Jaroda's design more though so he just wins it for me by an inch.

    Thanks to King of Jesus (Neodark) for the banner!

    In a battle, two Leaf Storms from an Antagonist Jaroda defeats Torterra, who can't one-hit KO it back.

    That's the way I like it.

    I like them both.

    Torterra has a tree and 2 mini mountains on its back.

    Jaroda is proud looking snake. I like snakes quite a lot.

    I'll go with Jaroda but my opinion on these two keeps changing.

    I guess I'll choose Jaroda. Don't get me wrong, they're my two favorite grass starters.

    Jaroda has the better design, IMO, but Torterra has the superior stats and movepool.

    Can't say I'm pleased with Jaroda's stats or movepool, but I prefer its design to Torterra's.

    I prefer Torterra. Since I started out with Turtwig on my Japanese Pearl, I've loved that whole evolution line.

    Difficult choice. Torterra is awesome in both design and Types, while Jaroda has an amazing design, but missed out in having an interesting combination. Torterra was my Starter of choice in 4th Gen, and Jaroda will be my Starter of choice in 5th Gen, so it's pretty even.

    Unfortunately, as cool as Jaroda is, and as much as I like her Moves and Abilities, as well as her design, Torterra wins in virtue of having all Jaroda does, and a great Type Combination that I always wanted to see.
    lol I got bored.

    I really like both to be honest as both are my favorite of that Gen (Ironic I disliked the first two Grass staters and The other three are among my favorite)

    Toterra has a good type combo but Jaroda resists both Grass and ground types While Jaroda can deal normal damage to Torterra. Plus 4x Ice weakness hurts Torterra who is slow. Jaroda can outspeed every Water type except Starmie and Floatzel.

    Giving him an advantage if he has Perversity Leaf-Storm that can knock out Most Water Types before they can hit him with Ice atacks

    I like Torterra more.
    I can only really base my opinion on Jaroda from what Ive seen of it, whereas Ive used a Torterra to great effect many times.

    Torterra is strong, with access to STAB Ground type moves.
