    Although I found Ariados rather cool, Galvantula is just a one up in terms of coolness!

    It's Galvantula six ways to Sunday. Sure, they're both giant spiders, which is sort of cool... but only one of them makes electrified webs. That just oozes cool.

    Gotta go with Ariados here. The older gen pokemon will always be better for me even though Galvantula is awesome as well.

    I voted for Ariados simply because I prefer its design, but Galvantula is still really cool and the concept of electrified spider webs is very clever.

    EDIT: Also, Ariados has the better Shiny.

    Ariados is awesome, but I've got to go with Galvantula. Design-wise, he's awesome. Game-wise, how can you turn down anything that combines Thunder with Compoundeyes?

    I like them both, but I think I lean towards Galvantula on this question.

    I much prefer Galvantula over Ariados, because I really like it's type. I like Ariados, but it's never been a Pokémon I gave much thought too, whereas Galvantula is definitely on my top 5 Unova Pokémon.

    I like both, but Galvantula has the trump card. I just love the concept... 'oh gawd the spiderwebs are electric! nooooooo! auuugh [insert varied death gurgle noises]!' I mean, it's an electric spider... how freaking awesome is that? It takes a lot to outdo that on a coolness level, imo.

    Galvantula for me. I have used it twice in Black and it was really great. Besides, I have never really been a fan of Ariados. So, my vote goes to Galvantula.

    I don't really have any issues with Ariados, but I had a Galvantula in White2 and it was super awesome. It just has great typing and actually learns great moves to back it up (which is where a lot of dual-type Pokemon seem to fall flat, in my experience).

    Ariados is cool, and I maybe even like it better aesthetically. But it just doesn't seem nearly as useful. Pretty cool that it can learn some ghost-type moves, though.

    I think I used Galvantula at one point in White 2.

    Galvantula, Ariados really isn't very good, while Galvantula can kick some serious butt. I like the design of Ariados more though, but I've just never found it useful.

    Galvantula, easily. I've never really been a fan of Ariados. I prefer Galvantula's typing and design, and it's pre-evolution is extremely cute too.

    Both are cool.

    But it's to bad that Ariados lacks competive results, while Galvantula has quite an competive status.
