I picked Dome, since I personally like Kabuto better than Omanyte.

It used to be Helix, but recently I have started liking the Kabuto line better. I like both, though.

I always picked Helix Fossil since RBY. I don't know why, I guess I picked it randomly the first time and then decided to always do it. Plus my brother had Kabuto so I just traded with him for one.

I used to LOVE Kabuto, but I've just started hating it with a burning passion recently.

I think Helix, then. It also helps that I used to have a Shiny Omastar, whereas Shiny 'Tops just looks like vomit.

I love Kabuto but i never really knew which fossil was which back in the day when there was no internet :P So i choosed at random. But in my recent plays i've always picked the Helix fossil, i love Omanyte :)

Even though they both get on my nerves, I chose the Helix fossil all the time because to me it look way cooler, than the Dome fossil. To me Omanyte looks better than Kabuto

I'm gonna have to say Dome fossil. I just like Kabuto and Kabutops better than Omanyte/Omastar, and I just battle better with Kabuto/Kabutops, for some reason.

I've always picked Dome one.
But resurrect Kabuto from it was the all I did with it xD
I've never used Kabuto somewhere xD

Helix fossil, because Omanyte has always been a very reliable Pokemon for me.

Dome of course!Kabutops :D
Indeed, Dome all the way.
I mean, who would want a tiny hermit thing? Kabutops is way more kickass.

Dome fossil because of the learning moves of Kabuto/Kabutops.

Helix, sounds cool. I don't use either anyway — I use Aerodactyl.

I would prefer dome fossil but whats the all hating omanytes? they may badly compare to kabuto but in the real world it Would be a really good choice but still kabuto is cooler

I choose Dome, though half of the time I don't even use it and it sits in the back of my bag to rot for the whole game.

Dome because of kabutops :D

Dome cuz kabutops was one of favorite generation 1 pokemon. Plus I liked kabuto's 4 eyesm, those two black dots on shell are eyes right?

I Laugh at your Misfortune!
July 25th, 2009, 04:12 PM
I'm going to join the weird group and pick Helix. :D

At first, I preferred Kabuto, but then when you see some decent sprites for Omanyte, you can see that its actually kinda cute, in a way. Plus, Omastar looks frikkin' badass. And it was the first shiny card I got when I used to collect them :D

I don't really mind but I guess I pick Dome more often than Helix

I used to mix the Fossils and Pokemon up, too... Helix Fossil sounds cooler, though.

Anyway, I chose Dome Fossil. Probably because I like anything that has blades for hands! :rambo: Anyway, Omastar doesn't even look that bad; it's pretty decent! :t139: But Kabutops looks fierce. Kabutops's appearance seems to send off the warning that if you so much as touch it, you'll most likely be losing a finger or two...or a limb. :t141:
The only thing bad about Kabutops are its arms. They look like twigs that can snap off at any second! I mean, Scyther pulls the blades-for-hands theme off well without resembling an oddly-shaped twig... :t123:

Kabuto and Omanyte both look cute...it took me a while to figure out Kabuto's real eyes, though... ;) But I hate it how Kabuto the Pokemon shares its name with Kabuto the ninja from the Naruto series. IMO, Kabuto the Pokemon deserves the name more, since it isn't nearly as annoying as Kabuto the ninja. Kabuto the Ninja brings up some interesting conflict, but let him have some other generic Japanese name... :cer_sneeze:

In Leafgreen I alternate to get both pokémon for whichever 4th gen game I'm playing, but Omanyte is my favourite - he's just so cute, and has always served me well on whatever team I have at the time.

Who doesn't like an extinct, cool looking crab like Pokemon with Claws that would make your gardening scissors look like babies? xP

Dome Fossil for me.

Simply because Kabuto and Kabutops are win, and I always thought they looked cooler than Omanyte and Omastar (no offense to them). :D

Dome, but it's annoying that you have to wait until the seventh gym to get it at level 5 >.<

Dome fossil hands down. Kabutops is awesome.. o_0

Dome.
Even though I never use that Pokemon Anyway :p

I always chose Omanyte (Helix), simply because I liked it better and it was cooler.

Then again, I also always chose Hitmonlee when apparently people preferred Hitmonchan. And what game did I choose them on? Blue. I hated Red and never wanted to play it.

Honestly, I don't really care. But if I had to choose one, it would be the Helix Fossil.

I think Kabuto means "beetle" in japanese, although I am not sure, and it is possible to search for it. (Wikipedia leads me to http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%81%8B%E3%81%B6%E3%81%A8 )
Anyways, Kabuto was also Metabee's medal on anime Medabots, I've also seen the name on other animes, so it is most likely a common name there.

I have so many Omanytes. (In Platinum). :P I'm so happy I chose Dome Fossil this time in Leafgreen. (I always choose Helix hoping for a Kabuto, but accidentally end up with Omanyte.) I like Kabuto better. (Thanks for this thread. XD)

Definately Dome. Kabutops FTW!

Oh man! Dome Fossil is Omanyte. Helix Fossil is Kabuto. Your poll has them mixed up. (I just got Omanyte today. :/)

My vote goes to Kabuto, because Kabutops is more awesome.

I used to pick whichever sounded coolest at that time, recently i started to go with Kabuto more often. His evo line is serious win.

I usually got the Helix, but this time around I got Dome. But when it was cloned or whatever, I nicknamed it Helix (:.

Yeah. This is a bit confusing, since your post just above it had you talking about the same confusion and knowing which was which. Yet now you don't.

Helix, fersure.
Says the water pokemon fanatic.
And LOL. You keep hoping for a Kabuto from a Helix fossil?
Helix fossil = Omanyte 100% of the time.
Dome fossil = Kabuto 100% of the time.

I really just pick whatever and stuff it to the back of the bag. Though on RBY I an Omastar because it reminded me of a tire..lol

July 27th, 2009, 08:14 AM
I prefer the helix fossil because I like using omanyte/omastar on my team. It has good stats, but just the speed is low, but w/e... Otherwise Kabutops is a good choice though too...

I like Kabutops. So, I pick Dome Fossil. But, sometimes I wrong pick.

The Dome Fossil, because Kabutops is much stronger than Omastar xD

Helix because I just like the little snail but, in battle Kabuto is stronger then Omanyte
