Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan vs Sawk/Throh - Results (155 votes)
85.81% (133 votes)
14.19% (22 votes)
This poll is now closed.
So, my belief is that Gen V is somewhat of a reboot. I.e. they opted for a fresh new start of Pokemon.
So in this poll, I plan to find similarities between the new Gen V and the original Gen I and ask you guys which is the best. In terms of best, it can be based on anything, appearance, effectiveness in both ingame and competitive or even it's name. You decide.

So, here are some similarities between the two.

- Both are fighting types and seems to be the counterpart of each other. (fists vs foot/red vs blue)
- You can only get both via trading from a different game in Gen1 and Gen 5.
- Their names also somewhat oppose each other. Lee and Chan are very big martial artist actors. I suppose Lee's style is considered more serious than Chan's which is more goofy but still effective. Sawk(sock) is a punch or strike whereas Throh(throw) is well... a throw, different methods of attacks.
- They are also only Male

I don't like either set of mons so I won't vote in case I potentially give either side the advantage.
Stars, have their own beginnings, but their own power results in their destruction.

Definitely the Hitmons.

Easy peasy. The Hitmons of course.

Easily the HItmons. Sawk and Throh are...well I won't get into it, but they're just not my taste at all.
I summoned a baby to attract a lion. It didn't seem to work, so I tried a delicious baby.
Regular baby ATE delicious baby. Horror....horror.~Gameplayingperson

While they're a bit too humanoid in my opinion, I find them cooler looking than the Hitmons.

Hitmons are better in terms of design.

But I think Sawk and Throh are better in terms of uses. Sawk gets Sturdy and can't be OHKO'd like Lee. Throh is way bulkier than Chan.
