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 based off a pigeon. (But Pidgey looks nothing like one)
- Both are the beginning Flying type Pokemon

Day 1: Geodude line vs Roggenrola line - 44.35% to 55.65%

Pidgey line. Nostalgia beats crappy movepool every time.

Pidgey. Not so much because the Pidgey line is so good, but because the Pidove line is so bad. From the looks of it, you can tell that Pidove is a "poor man's" Pidgey. Pidgey is also reliable in stats and movepool, Pidove is a mess, with having high attack stats, but mostly special attack moves.

As much as I love the look of the Pidove line, the Pidgey line has good looks and a movepool that wasn't made by rolling dice.

It's been very difficult to fend off my nostalgia when voting for these. Hell, for a lot of them I think the older pokemon are better anyway (at least ingame).

Still shocked that ghastly v. litwick was as close as it was.

Pidgey hands down

You have a typo on Day 12, Voltorb with Foongus

Nope
Both can be disguised as pokeballs and extremely annoying to face. Voltorb being fast and you can't run away while foongus has effect spore, which i find annoying in game.
