Staraptor IMO.

Thing was a kamikaze beast in the late game.

Too much speed and not much punch. Stat-wise, not really, all that speed is wasted if it can't be take out the opponent before its frail body gets hit.

Aesthetics wise, it's my favourite now.

I thought it was garbage. Pretty terrible moves up until Talonflame, and even then I pretty much stopped using it. Think I traded it on Wonder Trade actually....

It also was redundant to use on a team with Charizard.
We trained harder than you today, and we're gonna party harder than you tonight. Mint with the crew.

Staraptor is offensively way more powerful.

Talonflame is a speed demon.

staraptor used to be my fave, but talonflame is just perfection

and flame body is underrated. nothings better than switching in on a 4x resist move and getting them burned (or having it for hatching)

Guts/Facade Swellow is still my favorite.

2nd to Staraptor, but pretty good for in-game.
