I'm not a fan of either, but Tentacruel edges it because of this badass sprite:

I'll give it to Octillery, he's an octopus cannon while tentacruel is a mere pissed off jellyfish

Tenatcruel by a long shot. He could evolve... At 20,000 leagues below the sea. Lol. Octillary is just pissed because he's not a Kraken.

Well, since this is detached from competitive battle, I am going to choose Octillery. Just that sense of "I look nothing like Remoraid" and "I wonder what it would look like if the Remoraid on Mantine evolved"

I like neither but octillary just edges it because of its special move octazooka

After the Porta Vista episode, I can never like the Tentacool line. And Octopi are awesome.

In terms of personal preference, Tentacruel by far. I just find it to be a better Pokémon. But, in true SL-hakase tradition, I'mma analyze their stats and such.

Octillery
HP: 75
Attack: 105
Defense: 75
Sp. Attack: 105
Sp. Defense: 75
Speed: 45

Tentacruel
HP: 80
Attack: 70
Defense: 65
Sp. Attack: 80
Sp. Defense: 120
Speed: 100

Obviously, just by that, Tentacruel can easily kick Octillery's ass. I think I need go no further. .

Tentacruel I think is cooler because of its combination of water and poison attacks. Although it seems statically Octillary has an advantage, Tentacruel's speed helps to make it a more interesting battle.

Tentacruel all the way :H He's "the gangster of the sea", whereas Octillery is a little red pile of urine.

When you put it like that, I just HAVE to do this, you know :P

Obviously, Tentacruel is faster no matter what, unless Octillery's got somewhat of a Speed pass.

Octillery w/ max Sp. A + natured, and Life Orb using Psychic vs standard Tentacruel:
339 Atk vs 341 Def & 364 HP (90 Base Power): (46.70% - 54.95%)

The same Octillery w/ max A, + natured, and Life Orb using Return vs standard Tentacruel:
339 Atk vs 216 Def & 364 HP (102 Base Power): (40.93% - 48.35%)
(too lazy to run Charge Beam calcs)

Tenta vs Octillery max Sp.A + natured, Life Orb, Sludge Bomb:
284 Atk vs 186 Def & 292 HP (90 Base Power): (66.10% - 78.08%)

However, that is rarely the case, as Tenta usually don't invest in the offensive arenas, nor do it care much for orbs, so this would be more likely:
196 Atk vs 186 Def & 292 HP (90 Base Power): (34.93% - 41.44%)

Obviously, the last one is the most likely scenario.. and so, it turns out to be:

Tenta used Sludge Bomb!
Octillery lost 40% of its health.
Octillery used Psychic!
(It's super effective!)
Tenta lost 50% of its health.
Octillery lost 10% HP using its Life Orb!
Tenta restored 6% HP using its Leftovers.

Tenta 56% HP, Octillery 50% HP.

Tenta used Sludge Bomb!
Octillery lost 35% of its health.
Octillery used Psychic!
(It's super effective!)
Tenta lost 55% of its health.
Octillery lost 10% HP using its Life Orb!
Tenta restored 6% HP using its Leftovers.

Tenta 7% HP, Octillery 5% HP.

Tenta used Sludge Bomb!
Octillery lost 38% of its health.
Octillery fainted!

Has Octillery EVER appeared in a episode? :\ (Btw, I dont watch the anime much, sorry. :\)
Anyway, I'm going to have to say Octillery because Remoraid is adorable, it's more rare, and it's RED! XD

No, End of Thread, Tentacruel wins. Period. Bring him a challenge next time and I'll win the same way

Tentacruel. Octillery was a cool concept but he just ended up kinda forgettable. :-/

I love both, but after raising both I think Tentacruel was the stronger one.
Thus making it better. Plus I hate Remoraid so much :\

I like Tentacruel more myself.
It just has that "I will punch you in the mouth if you make another calamari joke" look, while Octillery looks kinda dopey.

Both Fail -_-
But Marginally Better Octillary because it's less common and i dont see it every 2 seconds in the ocean like i do Tentacruel

Octillery!
It learns a signature move, named Octazooka.
And yeah, like GavZ said, Tentacool appears everywhere in the ocean which can be very annoying.

In battle, Tentacruel owns. Faster speed and higher attack. Plus it's Poison-type gives it an edge over Grass-types. Although it'll have the disadvantage of being beaten easily by Psychic and Ground types.

True, but how is base 70 Attack and base 80 Sp. Attack higher than base 105/105? :P

And oh, I forgot to tell you that I've EV trained mine a lot, added to it's superior nature.

Tentacruel is far better 'cause of it's typing.
