    lugia > ho-oh. for serious.

    ps yes, this is an old thread. but this time new people get to vote.

    furthermore you are welcome to change your mind. a lot of you picked the wrong choice the first time around.

    HO-OH is awesome whereas Lugia is a stalling sob. This means for sure that HO-OH is the one to receive my vote!

    This picture proves it, see?

    lugia, its defenses are way better by far, it gets better STAB and movepool(Recover, Psychic/Psycho Boost, Aero, Surf, LS/Reflect ftw). Ho-oh has shit stab and not that good of a movepool, so not really much use of it's atk stats to begin with.

    Ho-oh, because when you type it on the nintendo forum it comes out as "**-oh". How cool is that, a pokemon that they censor!

    Whore-oh.

    Luigia is the best because he doesn't look like a retarded pheonix, and Ho-Oh not only has a hyphen, but is a rip off of Moltres and Charizard.

    Yea man, sunny beam sucks.
    Especially when it is able to counter blissey with it's attack.

    90 base attack isn't going to do shit, so all of lugia's attacks are worthless.

    The other issue being the fact that Deoxys does the job of stalling much better with Spikes and Seismic Toss.
    The only use Lugia has is as a parashuffler, which it does pretty well.
    Ho-oh is still better overall I'd say.

    Well, I know this guy named CFickle, and his named used to be LS which stood for LugiaStorm. I kinda like this guy CFickle, so I trust his judgment in choosing his nick, so I shall vote Lugia.

    But wait! Yesterday, in #Smogon, Sanders set mode: +ho-oh DoomMullet. I also like this Sanders fella, because he lovingly jabs me about my oversized shnoz. So I shall vote Ho-oh!

    But I can't vote both, and I really don't know what the fuck is going on. So I shall vote Libertarian.

    Ho-oh, because I'm tired of Lugia being seen as cooler, and Ho-oh deserves some attention. Ho-oh is also a man with the ladies.
