Ohoho Jumpluff vs. Whimsicott, eh? There was a period before the advent of Gen V that Whimsicott was dubbed Jumpluff v2.0, and that explains many things. Needless to say, Whimsicott takes my vote.

Damn, such a hard decision...I hate them both so much...
Whimsicott because I had good fun with the one in Black2. Jumpluff is annoying and can go screw itself; at least it's easy to win against noobs with Whimsicott - there's no sleep powder to eat every other turn.
 
I have a soft spot for Jumpluff ever since it was introduced. I love its colour scheme and how it the fastest Grass type in the Sun. Whimsicott on the other hand, wasn't something I was that fond of at the start (is it a sheep/goat or a fairy? I didn't like how the backsprite looked as well). While I can start to appreciate the design more I like how Jumpluff just exemplifies a carefree nature, its blue and white body floating amongst clouds in a blue sky. One of the pokes that really defined my love for Johto designs and region, really always wanted to use one.

Jumpluff
 
This is a tough one. One the one hand I want to vote for Jumpluff because I'm a Gentwoer but I do really like Whimsicott, both design wise and for its utility. I think I have to go Jumpluff...

Jumpluff

Because I used it in White with Acrobatics, and it beasted everything. Plus Leech Seed/Sleep Powder its just generally really fun to use. I am yet to use Whimsicott, I don't like the design at all.
 
Take a look at my signature... have any idea which pokemon I prefer?

To be honest, both Pokemon aren't really nostalgic for me. Whimsicott can never be nostalgic since it's Gen 5, but I used it in game a lot and fell in love with it. I had a few Jumpluff cards, but I never used it in game. The annoyingness is the main theme of these two mons. If you've seen any of Shofu's videos, you'll know how annoying as heck Jumpluff is to handle. The same goes with Whimsicott, but I like Whimsicott better in battle. (It sweeped a team of 6 legendaries with Stun Spore/Leech Seed/Substitute/Hurricane. Admittedly, it was against an inferior opponent by a long shot). Honestly, though, the design is the main difference. Jumpluff honestly looks like an Oddish (my favourite Gen 1 grass type) with a few odd-lookin' balls around it. It's just such a horrible-looking Pokemon.

Whimsicott, on the other hand, has a nice balance of cute and cool. It's a frickin' spore ram! I mean, don't you just want to snuggle right up next to it... admittedly, the Gen 5 sprite doesn't do it justice, but that doesn't take anything away from the design.

Whimsicott

hello this round is over so I shall post the next one now


Spiritomb v Sableye

ill count up results for the previous round in a bit
 
is that even a question

spiritomb is a swirly blob of what that is a pain in the arse to catch

sableye is a badass creature of the dark with gems for eyes and awesome claws and a cool looking physique
and it has a really good ability that fits with it perfectly
plus it was in sapphire/emerald

so

obviously Sableye
 
Spiritomb

I don't have any particular affinity for either pokemon, but seeing a friend of mine vs. Cynthia's Spiritomb ("It has not a single weakness!" - "Duuuuude") was one of the things that got me into pokemon.

Plus, I may have said it before but I FU@@ING HATE PRANKSTER. Grawr.

I'm not that young, I was around in the RBY era. It's just that I started playing pokemon recently for the lulz and really got into it. And Cynthia is... recent :P
