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 the industrial waste Pokemon.
- Both evolve twice

As much as I like Gen 5, I believe Trubbish was a bad idea. Muk is better imo.

I just can't comprehend having cigarettes for fingers...

Garbodor's face wins it for me. It's so terrifying. Grimer and Muk, to me, always came off as some of those lazy Pokemon we all hear about. A blob that evolves into a bigger blob.

Trubbish because it's bulkier

The fact that Grimer has twice as many votes as Trubbish is saddening.

I dislike them both with the same level of intensity, but I gave my vote to Grimer. I'd literally be voting for garbage either way; might as well pick the veteran garbage.

I voted for Grimer, as I can never seem to use Trubbish or Garbodor, no matter how many times I think about it.
Magikarps. They can beat Electabuzz.
