    Default Poll - Charizard vs Arcanine

    So, who do you think is better - Charizard or Arcanine?

    I much prefer Charizard. While Arcanine has higher stats, Charizard has a much better movepool. Also, while some may disagree, I find Fire/Flying to be better than pure Fire, mostly due to the immunity to Ground-type attacks.

    Charizard's better,as it's awesome. And it's immune to Ground,but it's sad that it has 4x weakness to Rock...

    Charizard.

    Arcanine is very awesome, but doesn't hold up as well as it should, plus his best stat is really just good attack and speed.

    Charizard has It's own balance of ups and downs. Stealth rock and stone edge being a big threat, but ground immunity and great speed and special attack make it a tough foe in some situations.

    But, It's all up to preference, an arcanine CAN beat a charizard, and a charizard can beat an arcanine. Depends on how you play.

    Charizard, though rock is its one weakness, at least it has "no need to worry" about ground moves.

    Wouldn't it be Ninetales vs. Arcanine?

    Anyway.. I've always kinda liked Charizard, but Arcanine.. I've never gotten the chance to use it (Blue and Leafgreen ;3; ) but the design is really cool, and it's one of the sturdiest fire types (probably the sturdiest in RBY).

    Oh, and Extremespeed is the shit.

    Absolutely Arcanine, at least nowadays, when it has got a good physical stab Flare Blitz and Iron Head from the move tutor in pt. It's ideal for countering rock types. When EV trained, Exremespeed is not bad either.

    Charizard is better when you're in a competitive circuit, I would wager, but I prefer Arcanine's design. The Pokemon world is brimming with lizards; we don't have nearly enough good doggies.

    Mind, I do love Charizard, but Arcanine's-- I just prefer Arcanine.

    Charizard is beastly. But don't get me wrong, RK9 (arcanine) is good, too. But i like dragons more than tigers.

    I'd say Charizard, but not by far. Before the physical/special split, it was no contest - Arcanine was a great design, but was only moderately useful because it couldn't really make use of its STAB, while Charizard was a beast. But since the split, Arcanine's gotten a chance to finally put that high ATK to good use. But I still like Charizard just a little better, mostly because of the added Flying type, both for the immunity to Ground and for the Flying STAB.
