I would go with Swellow, even though I like both. Swellow's easier to catch [just catch one of those many Tailows] and I like its speed and attack better. I like Noctowl a lot, I mean look at it, he can learn Psychic [right?].

Hmm, I can't really decide, since those are my two favorite bird pokemon, but I like Swellow's speed and attack, noctowl, I just like him in general

I had a feeling you started this thread Swellow :D
I'm gonna be a rebel, and say NOCTOWL FTW~
Nostalgia is also a reason. xD I loves me some nostalgia.

Swellow is my favourite Flying type pokemon.
Its speed and attack are just plain awsome,yet I love Noctowl! Just Swellow better.

Obviously Swellow! Just look at it. Noctowl can't compare to it.

Swellow: Stronger and more Party adversable
Noctowl: Super Fan Favorite, can learn Psychic, and I THINK some ghost type moves...

Hmm.....I like both, but I'd pick swellow, Just for the ATK and SPD. But then again, it depends on the team that I fight against.

I picked Swellow cos I like the way it looks and it's very quick - just like me.

Noctowl just because its a nocturnall pokemon.

AHAHHAHAHAhahHHAHAAAA!!!!!

Har Har Har!

Sorry, it's just....this thread brought a tear to my eye!

I say, lad, go with Swellow!

Did I ever tell you the story of TaiTai?

It was my MAIN-I-EST Pokemon on my old Emerald. *sighs*

I prefer Swellow since it looks much cooler, but I'd not have either of those on my team really c:

I can't really chose. It would depend what mood
I'm in. I like the way Swellow looks, but I also
like Noctowl's psychic moves.

Skaterzpenguin
May 30th, 2009, 03:33 PM
I prefer Swellow because it looks cooler than Noctowl and slightly better stats than noctowl except Noctowl does have decent sp. atk. at times. ;D

You always have to look at movesets. Yes, in base stats, Swellow is better, but you have to look at forestsite! Let's see swellow learn that.

personally i like swellow more. hes more powerful then noctowl.

May 30th, 2009, 08:23 PM
Neither. Dodrio is the best Normal/Flying-type in the game. Base 110 Atk and Drill Peck ftw.

Swift!
May 30th, 2009, 08:27 PM
Noctowl.

Cause it looks cooler and has much better moves.

angelsavoir
May 30th, 2009, 08:32 PM
I like them both. But I pefer noctowl!

then create your own thread saying whos better out Noctowl Swellow or Dodrio then

Idiot!

Swellow. The only reason to use Noctowl over Swellow is for its superior Sp Def

Swellow, but Staraptor has a better movepool then both of these Pokemon.

Swellow. I just think it looks cooler. though, I never really had Swellow in my Pokemon Team, I have Skarmory or Altaria.

JezzaRules

I'd go Swellow coz it's a very good sweeper (fast and good damage).

Isabelle
June 1st, 2009, 12:42 AM
Um. In the types Swellow is a Normal Type and a Flying Type. and Noctowl is a Flying tpye and a Psychic type not a Normal Type. So probably i guess Noctowl is much stronger because it can learn Psychic type.

so are we talking about Staraptor NO so why dont you stick to topic and i can get back to doing my day job thank you

Swellow!

All the day, because it is actually decent! XD

@ SwellowX - Calm down mate! Stop having a go at people for their opinions. They are only putting in their 2 cents!

Noctowl is a Flying and Normal type,not Psychic.Noctowl isnt stronger just because its learns Psychic,beside Swellow have a Higher attack and Speed and Noctowl have Higher sp.deffence and Deffence,so non of them is more powerful then the other.

I'd choose Swellow over Noctowl, i dislike Noctowl and it's pre-evolution. Even though i do hate Tailows fat head ;/

June 5th, 2009, 09:27 PM
noctowl for sure because it has the good sp stats
but incase of it
it would depend on the time mood and power you want

altaria221
June 5th, 2009, 09:30 PM
definitely swellow,
turn 1: swellow protect, noctowl hypnosis, burn orb burned swellow
turn 2: swellow facade, noctowl is in big trouble

BHwolfgang
June 5th, 2009, 09:49 PM
I like Swellow more, because of it's speed and attack, but Nowtowl has nostalgic purposes. In the end, I must pick Swellow. It's just better.

Swellow would be powerful to beat Noctowl. It's because. It's attacks/skills are greater than Noctowl. And it's stats are much more powerful than Noctowl.

I prefer Noctowl for it's overall better moves etc.

I am gonna go with swellow just because i like him and i always end up cathing him when playing my emerald i never really payed attention to noctowl

Bibliophibian

Personally I prefer Noctowl over Swellow, but it's mainly just because I find Noctowl to be a bit more unique. Swellow is a good Pokemon to use too though.

Even though it's not an option, I always used Wingull/Pelipper in R/S/E, since I usually picked Torchic as my starter.

Swellow. It is overall better when it comes to stats, coolness, and overall popularity. I don't really like it much though. Flying-types don't appeal to me much except Togekiss.

Captain Fabio
June 9th, 2009, 04:28 PM
definitely swellow,
turn 1: swellow protect, noctowl hypnosis, burn orb burned swellow
turn 2: swellow facade, noctowl is in big trouble
I am pretty sure a Toxic Orb would be better, since the status burn, cuts the Pokemon's attack...

machinegun777
June 9th, 2009, 05:20 PM
Definitely Noctowl, because it's part Psychic type, and Psychic Pokemon are really strong.

Kirbychu
June 9th, 2009, 05:31 PM
The bird pokemon get better each gen imo. For me it's Staraptor>Swellow>Noctowl>Pigeot.

altaria221
June 9th, 2009, 07:25 PM
actually noctowl is normal/flying
it just learns psychic type moves

Halcyon
June 10th, 2009, 03:11 AM
I am stuck at both. @.@

But if I were to choose, I would choose Noctowl.
It is noctural and has awesome vision, and it can learn Hypnosis.

noctowl looks more rugged and devilish. i like it.

swellow by far for some reason i cant stand noctowl i just dont know why

Echoing-Echoes
June 15th, 2009, 08:20 PM
Noctowl. Mostly because I like being a rebel and I like pokemon that aren't overused =P

But also because I never found a use for Swellow in R/S/E, but I always found a use for Noctowl in G/S/C

Noctowl is cool, plus it is an owl. 8P But, Guts is too good to pass up.

June 15th, 2009, 08:42 PM
Noctowl is a lot prettier, so that's my choice. Plus it's nostalgic.

crobatdeluxe
June 15th, 2009, 08:59 PM
I prefer Noctowl. I think he is better than Swellow in the long run. I mean, Swellow is good early in the game, but once I get the chance to get a Hoothoot, bye bye Swellow.

I just had to go with Swellow :)

I would recommend having a Swellow on my team, which I do have on my team in Pokemon Emerald because of its looks and its speed stat.

kain_Ronin
June 17th, 2009, 04:15 PM
TBH, those two are probably my LEAST favourite flying types except for the legendaries and farfetch'd.
I'd go with crobat over them any day 8D

BUT to avoid the abuse you've given other people for even DARING to mention another pokemon apart from your precious noctowl and swellow:

I prefer noctowl out of those two.
I just prefer his moveset.
Noctowl can learn hypnosis, nightmare AND dream eater, right?
Though the toxic orb/facade combo of swellow is still pretty decent.

I like Swellow more than Noctowl as he is faster AND STRONGER. But I like Noctowl as he was one of Ash's pokemon( I like Ash's pokemon).

MUSION

While Swellow is superior in terms of actual usability, that's not important to me. I pick Noctowl, because it looks much cooler in my opinion :)

Noctowl is a lot prettier, so that's my choice. Plus it's nostalgic.

Really? What would you rather have: a bookish wise looking bird or a sleek fast awesome bird pokemon like Swellow. Swellow is superior to Noctowl in every way. I think I actually like swellow out of all beginning bird pokemon. (Pidgeot comes in at a relatively close second)

kellogs
June 20th, 2009, 01:26 AM
Noctowl,doesn't have Swellow's speed but it's got hypnosis which I like :P

Artonkn
June 20th, 2009, 01:41 AM
I've chosen Noctowl, he's more 'wise' and Ash used to have a shiny one :D

That person can like who that person wants to like, just because you dont think Noctowl is better.

I think Noctowl is better, it's nostalgic, and it can learn psychic moves!

Ill go for swellow, even though noctowl gets hypnosis which is cool and all, swellow is faster and hits harder in-game.

Pink Twilight

My first reaction is swellow!!! Its stats are great and its speedy and makes a good defense ;) its pretty balanced!

XxDawnfanxX
June 20th, 2009, 09:36 AM
Both are very good flying types. Swellow was my favorite bird in the Hoen region. I really like Noctowl though because of its physic abilities.

Noctowl because it's from Johto.

Noctowl, well because (even though it was Shiny) Ash made it look so cool in the anime and thats when I started liking it. I really dont like Swellow as much,
