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

Today's polls is an easy choice IMO --- UMvC3 Team ~ Nova[Centurion Rush]/Rocket Raccoon[Pendulum]/Amaterasu[Cold Star] ~ PSN: Xr0s-up Official Galactus of UMVC3
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. --- Pokemon White FC: Gemini: 2623 2488 5243
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. --- "Murder of the living is tragic, but murder of the idea is unforgivable." - Janus, speaker of the synod
pidgey himself is as bad as pidove line though (although his evos fix that) --- "[Marlon] shaved [his nipples] off his chest to reduce water resistance when he swims." - HeyWheresKel http://i.imgur.com/aONxd.png
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. --- UMvC3 Team ~ Nova[Centurion Rush]/Rocket Raccoon[Pendulum]/Amaterasu[Cold Star] ~ PSN: Xr0s-up Official Galactus of UMVC3
