Articuno for many, many reasons, but I'll keep it at 5.
1.Flygon is horrible for a dragon type (BST of 520? really?)
2.Articuno has a beneficial type.
3.Articuno is legendary.
4.Flygon is overrated.
5.I have an articuno, but not a flygon.


1) Its good. Its just outclassed by monsters like Salamance and Garchomp. 520 total is good.
2) LMAO
3) So? Its rotting in NU or RU while Flygon has good usage in UU.
4) Who says and why?
5) You're on the internet.

Articuno looks more beautiful. Yeah that's the only things where Flygon is beaten.

1.Articuno is horrible for an Ice-type AND a Flying-type. (4x weak to Stealth Rock? 85/95 offences? lol)
2. lolwut
3. Flygon doesn't go roaming in any game, can be used before post-game, and can breed and get egg moves.
4. You're kidding yourself if you don't think Articuno is overrated.
5. I have both and prefer Flygon any day of the week.

Articuno sucks at battling.

But he is 100x cooler than Flygon just for design and anime purposes.

Why Flygon is good

1) It has high stats that can seriously kill.
2) It can learn a OHKO
3) b4 Gen4, it had something like a triple typing
4) Its the best choice of Dragon for RSE since Salamence is late in the game
5) Its more versatile
6) its not weak to Stealth Rock
7) It is accepted in more competitive battles than Arricuno

I don't like the new pokemon from Gen V and VI
"New is not a synonym of better" -wonder if it's been said before

Flygon is an overrated piece of s***.

Articuno FTW!

Why Flygon is good

1) It has high stats that can seriously kill. (Articuno's are better)
2) It can learn a OHKO (So can Articuno)
3) b4 Gen4, it had something like a triple typing (so what?)
4) Its the best choice of Dragon for RSE since Salamence is late in the game (again, so what?)
5) Its more versatile (Articuno is versatile too)
6) its not weak to Stealth Rock (rapid spin)
7) It is accepted in more competitive battles than Articuno (Articuno is awesome in NU, stealth rock prevents it from doing better)

Articuno. I can't stand Flygon. It's an insult to the Dragon type.
