View Full Version : Nidoking or Nidoqueen

May 27th, 2008, 11:24 PM
Who do you prefer, i prefer nidoking cause hes got poison attacks aswell and hes actually stronger than nidoqueen but she is faster

May 28th, 2008, 12:43 AM
She's not faster... Her base Speed is 76, Nidoking's base Speed is 85.

It's Nidoqueen that has better Defenses, and HP. While Nidoking has better Attacking stats and Speed.

Um... Anyway. I like Nidoking better. By a lot. I dislike Nidoqueen, actually... But I love Nidoking. He's so cool...

I used male nidoran quite often in fire red, so I prefer nidoking more than nidoqueen.

May 28th, 2008, 2:41 AM
Hmm... Even though I like Blue, I think I'd choose Nidoking... Maybe because of the stats or because pf the fact that he's a male-only species...

May 28th, 2008, 2:47 PM
i go with nidoking for several reasons...

hes got the word king in his name.

hes got a huge horn filled with poison...

much better speed and attack...

and if i had to choose who to be mauled by between the two... id have to go with nidoking....


and he learns megahorn.

Nidoking's just better cause he's a guy, even if he was weaker

May 28th, 2008, 3:58 PM
Well.. it doesnt matter now seeing as Nidoking was replaced by Tyranitar..

May 28th, 2008, 4:26 PM
Ill have to go with Nidoking. He looks meaner, tougher, and he just looks like the kinda thing that youd stay away from. ^ ^

As much as I know Nidoking hits harder and faster, I actually prefer Nidoqueen, don't really know why really either.

May 28th, 2008, 5:11 PM
I prefer Nidoking. Because of his high stats. Also, you should just made a poll. -_-

I agree with darknessvolt... you should have made this a pole.

Anyway, I dislike them both, but if I had to choose one, it'd be Nidoqueen.

I've never had trouble finding and raising a Pokemon with good Attack/Speed, but I seem to have a bit of trouble with Defense/HP... so Nidoqueen would be who I'd choose.

But, like I said before, I don't use either of them.

Nidoqueen looks kinda weird. Tho both of em arent very pretty lookin...O____O
I remember when I had nidoking and queen in my party on firered, got em both 2 level 50 and traded em off. Either way they both are cool 2 meh.

Nidoking. I have some good memories of using it in the first two generations. Nidoqueen - not so much.

May 29th, 2008, 2:57 AM
Nidoking definitely. I don't know why, it might be because it was one of my lead Pokémon in basically all the games.

May 29th, 2008, 3:02 AM
I always liked Nidoking, even way back in Yellow when it was believed that the only way to beat Brock was by getting a Nidoran with Double Kick...

I know differently now, but I always catch a Nidoran Male whenever I start a new game on yellow.

I prefer Nidoqueen, because all its stats are equal to Nidoking, but Nidoqueens defence can be a little more higher, so yeah go Nidoqueen! :]

May 29th, 2008, 7:26 AM
Well, Nidoqueen was my first experience with the Nido family, way back in Pokemon Yellow. It holds a special place in mah heart.

However, Nidoking's just a badass. So is Nidorino, for that matter.

I have fond memories with Nidoqueen. :D -huggles Sakaka- She still needs a Moon Stone...but still.

But I like Nidoking, too. Good memories with that one, also. -huggles Caiman-

Sadly, they have been replaced by the likes of Tyranitar and such beasties.

I prefer Nidoking...
as I always go for offense and speed rather than defense and HP. And, he looks far better than Nidoqueen.
A king is more powerful than a queen.

Yh i thought most people would go for nidoking hes mint

June 16th, 2008, 10:31 PM
I have preferred Nidoking since my first time playing pokemon. His lv 23 move... Thrash, in the original 3 games, was the best move I have ever seen... With one PP, it was able to defeat 3 or 4 opposing pokemon...

I always pick attack and speed when I pick pokemon. Scyther, Nidoking, Zangoose, etc...

I never vs. battle other people, so I rarely have need for Defence or HP. I kill most things before they have a chance to strike back.

I would go with Nidoqueen because it has the better stats.

June 17th, 2008, 3:45 PM
Well, in the games, you have Nidoqueen, with the base stats of Health Points at Ninety, Attack at Eighty-Two, Defence at Eighty-Seven, Special Attack at Seventy-Five, Special Defence at Eighty-Five and Speed at Seventy-Six. Nidoking, however, has the base stats of Health Points at Eighty-One, Attack at Ninety-Two, Defence at Seventy-Seven, Special Attack at Eighty-Five, Special Defence at Seventy-Five and Speed at Eighty-Five. And because my strategies for competitive play are normally focused on offensive play, I'd prefer Nidoking.

Also, look at their appearance, Nidoqueen is blue and her shiny form is some sort of horrible brown, but Nidoking is purple and his shiny form is a nice crystal clear blue, because I think Nidoking looks nicer, I've got to say I prefer him there as well.

Then, we move onto the games and my stories. I used a Nidoqueen back in the good old days of Red, Blue and Yellow in all of my teams, for reasons unknown. I thought that she was better than Nidoking, so she wins that round.

Overall though, I'd say I prefer Nidoking.

When I started the first generation games, I believe I had both Nidoqueen and Nidoking in my party in my journey. :D I loved the power both brought to the table. So, I prefer both on a level of favorites. However, competitively, I'd never use them. Unfortunately, they aren't powerhouses in competitive play like they were for me ingame. If i had to select one, it'd probably be Nidoqueen. Not really sure why, but something about it makes me like it more. :)

June 17th, 2008, 4:56 PM
Hm... Nidoking. I never really liked either until I decided to train a Nidoran-Male in FireRed, and then I got this liking for Nidokings. Normally in-game I'm a heavy user of special sweeper-varieties of Pokemon, who are almost guaranteed to strike first and use mainly powerful water/fire/psychic/dark attacks. But with Nidoking, it was a bit different. I enjoyed the raw power I got with him, despite the fact that his speed wasn't as reliable as that of say, my Raichu's (who was on the same game file and party). His attacks and their types also gave him a boost, seeing as I love Earthquake, and Megahorn destroyed Psychics considering he struck before them and didn't miss. So, based on my positive experience training one, I'd have to go with Nidoking. Oh yeah, and I love to draw 'em! Nidoqueen's just... well, just...

Nidoqueen is a pansy.
(Who can't learn Megahorn, either)

Edit: With that nub on its head, I bet it can learn Meganub, though.

June 27th, 2008, 1:53 PM
NidoKing learns megahorn, I rather have that.
