Can anyone explain why I should pick Chesnaught when Breloom exists?

Chesnaught is more aesthetically pleasing and has better stats

Use Chesnaught now, and Breloom for the destined R/S remakes

Breloom has fantastic atk, and mediocre everything else.

Chesnaught has fantastic def, decent atk and hp, and mediocre everything else. Plus, Spike Shield.

This. Chesnaught being a starter makes it decent by default.

Breloom has poor special attack and dies easily to Ice Beam. However, if possible, Technician Bullet Seed is killer. Though Bullet Seed is an egg move?

yeah, learning shell smash possiblity would give it place in competitive play

spiky shield
shell smash
mach punch?? not sure if he could get this one, or other good fighting stab except superpower or hammer which it will likely learn
seed bomb or leaf blade if it can learn it, could also just replace with a rock type move

works like protect so you take no damage from attacks and if your opponent does attack they take the hit instead

We can't tell yet since we don't know the metagame.

Chesnaught does have a better speed, defense and HP with general improvements in most stats, but unless his movepool is as awesome as Breloom's (it won't be because of spore), he's probably not going to be THAT great.

I'm curious as to why they made Breloom get exp so slowly. Maybe because Spore is awesome.
