Galvantula is really cool because Bug/Electric is an awesome typing (and 91% accurate Thunders are awesomeeee) but Zebstrika is really cool too just cos it's a zebra and awesome. Competitively (shut up this is the only way I think) Galvantula is far, far better just because it has a better STAB combination and strong. Dream World-art wise... Zebstrika, definitely. UH IDK ABOUT TRANSFORMING INTO A POKEMON IM NOT JUSTINRPG OKAY

Annnnnnnnnnnnd I'm just gonna pick randomly since I think they're equally good. ;;

Which one gives you the better impression & why?
Galvantula, it has a nicer name and a more interesting design (and its quite cute awh.

Which Dream World art stands out the most to you?
I prefer Zebstrika's posing.

If you could be one of these Pokémon (actually transform into one!) which one would you want to turn into?
Probably Zebstrika, less people are scared of Zebra.

Against one another, who would win the battle?
Zebstrika, it has access to fire moves after all.

Galvantula or Zebstrika?!
In terms of movepool, Galvantula is a bit more diverse an interesting, however I think overall Zebstrika is the winner for sheer awesome zebra vibes.

The Spider duh! lol The zebra didn't do it for me. I don't feel like it could sweep anything if given the chance. I, myself, wouldn't wouldn't use the spider.....got a thing about spiders.....:(

Good one!


Which one gives you the better impression & why?

Zebstrika, mainly because it's the first Zebra Pokémon out of five generations!

Which Dream World art stands out the most to you?

Galvantula, the colours, positioning and the art overall just appeals to me more.

If you could be one of these Pokémon (actually transform into one!) which one would you want to turn into?

Tough one, Galvantula for speed and Zebstrika for appearence so tied really.

Against one another, who would win the battle?

Zebstrika, just seems like it's slightly more powerful based upon it's looks.

Galvantula or Zebstrika?!

Zebstrika, as much as I like the both of them I've had experience with both and I found Zebstrika to be more helpful but Galvantula is still an awesome Pokémon.

Which one gives you the better impression & why?
Eh, I'd say Galvantula, I like the spider design, and the typing is pretty cool too.
Which Dream World art stands out the most to you?
Zebstrika, it just looks more... confident I guess, the pose is better at the very least
If you could be one of these Pokémon (actually transform into one!) which one would you want to turn into?
Um... Idk I'd rather not turn into either but I'd probably turn into Zebstrika, because I'd rather not be a spider (plus the chances of being eaten if it was a pokemon-eat-pokemon world) and Zebstrika... yeah idk anyways...
Against one another, who would win the battle?
Probably Galvantula, unless Zebstrika got really lucky with a flame charge, but I'm going with Galvantula, Bug Buzz or something similar would take it out real fast.
Galvantula or Zebstrika?!
Galvantula! Overall, I just like it better, but Zebstrika is still really cool too (but I'd probably never use Zeb in a playthrough)

Which one gives you the better impression & why? Zebstrika, cos I'm more of a zebra fan compared to a spider fan.
Which Dream World art stands out the most to you? Zebstrika, it looks cool.
If you could be one of these Pokémon (actually transform into one!) which one would you want to turn into? I'd be Zebstrika, just cos I used one in Black and she was my star in the Nimbasa Gym, sweeping Elesa's entire team.
Against one another, who would win the battle? Zebstrika, cos it can use Flame Charge which is super-effective on Galvantula.
Galvantula or Zebstrika?! I'm a Zebstrika girl, I just don't like bugs that much.

Which one gives you the better impression and why?
Galvantula, by quite a lot. It's appearance reminds me of a cooler Ariados, which already looked great, and I like spiders anyway.

Which Dream World art stands out the most to you?
Galvantula has a very odd appearance on it's own, so it's DW art stands out the most to me. Honestly, though, I'm not the best guy to ask about DW, because I don't really use it.

If you could be one of these Pokemon, which one would you want to turn into?
Scaling vertical walls, keeping people away with electrified webs, having 6 eyes, and looking awesome are only some of the benifits that becoming a Galvantula would herald. Definitely Galvantula.

Against one another, which one would win the battle?
Sure, Zebstrika has Flame Charge. However, it has poor stats that make it frail to just about any attack that hits it. Galvantula has Compoundeyes, giving it great accuracy to go along with it's moveset. A fight between these two could go either way, really, but I'd have to, unfortunately, say Zebstrika wins here. If Flame Charge misses, though, then Galvantula would likely win.

Zebstrika or Galvantula?
Definitely Galvantula. I like insects/arachnids in general, and I really, really, really dislike Zebstrika's design. It also helps that Galvantula has one of the best designs in Generation 5.

I happen to like Galvantula more, better design, better movepool, and better concept in general lol.

I think Galvantula wins for me. Zebstrika looks cooler, but Galvantula is just a lot better of a Pokemon, and has good, fairly balanced stats.

Which one gives you the better impression & why?
At first glance the better impression is Zebstrika, it definately has an air of being tough about it (The "Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover" rule comes into play here. haha)

Which Dream World art stands out the most to you?
Zebstrika; The pose is just a lot 'cooler' than Galvantula's Dream World art.

If you could be one of these Pokémon (actually transform into one!) which one would you want to turn into?
Galvantula, because I think it would be really interesting to be a bug type that has electric capabilities

Against one another, who would win the battle?
Zebstrika would win, assuming the trainer has kept it's fire attack while training it

Galvantula or Zebstrika?!
Galvantula, I just plain love the Joltik - Galvantula line of evolution, one of the few things that didn't make me want to cry about black and white

I like Galvantula better because of its secondary Bug typing, which gives it STAB on Bug Buzz. 91% accurate Thunders, courtesy of CompoundEyes, are also neat.

I don't dislike them, but by the same token I am not too high on them either like I am with Eelektross. In terms of appearance and design I like Zebstrika and in terms of battling I'd probably opt with Galvantula, since Zebstrika seemed pretty useless mid game. I will give Zebstrika a slight edge cause it is owned by Stephan.

Okay so this is hard. Mainly for me I... care more about their battling skills, so completely ignoring the fact that Shimama... uh, Blitzle was one of my first Unova favourites, and that Galvantula was my favourite for many months, I'm going to just have to forget all that and think entirely about battling like that's hard.

KAY SO, when I saw the poll, I immediately thought "HMMM IS GALVANTULA NU? IF SO THAT'D BE PRETTY AWESOME TO USE" and then I checked Smogon, and nope, which was my first disappointment. However, as a negative for Zebstrika, it did beat my team at one point. HOWEVER, I dislike the tier Galvantula is in for no logical reason whatsoever, and since I'm doing nu lately... I pick Zebstrika.

That is probably the worst reason to pick a Pokemon ever I'm sorry world, lool. :(

Galvantula? Man, I want a Galvantula now cause he's that awesome. I think I'm not much of a battler, so I only need something that's good enough.

Oh, and cutest spider ever <3

Impression? Galvantula (Zebby looks so boring)
DW? Galvantula
In a battle, Zebby would win against Gab. Not that it matters, though.

Can I be a Galvantula?

Zebstrika. I used both Pokémons in my team, and I think the zebra is stronger.
And I don't really like Galvantula... Compared to the badass spider of gen 2, Gyarados, it's insignificant for me.

Gotta be Galvantula. Better Speed, Better Special Attack and 91% Thunder = win

FUZZY SPIDER. Because it's fuzzy, cute, yellow, and doesn't suck. I love using Galvantula and used on in my first run of White, and I'm actually using it again in my English White because it's so fuzzy and great.

Hard poll, actually. I like both in terms of usability and design. They tied in practically everything in my book.

But I choose Galvantula because of the dual typing. :)

-Hmm... I'd rather be a zebra than a spider lol.

My vote had to go to Galvantula for this one. Galvantula is one of the few spiders in existence that I actually like (pretty much all the rest I am scared of). Galvantula gives a great first impression. It's so fluffy. Zebstrika does have better Dream World art, but that doesn't really matter in the scheme of things. I'd rather be idk... Spiderman. If they went up against each other in battle, I'm not really sure who would win, Zebstrika only has Flame Charge to use, while Galvantula would probably be able to do better damage with STAB Bug Buzz.

It's a very close competition for me. ^^ Zebstrika gave me a better impression because I find the design on Zebstrika's body to be quite intriguing and very cool to look at, which to me stands out more in its DW art. Although I have to say, Galvantula is quite close at its impression though, which I find it cute and adorable due to its small physique. :D I would want to turn into a Galvantula, because Zebstrika appears to be quite bad-tempered, which is one quality that I wouldn't like to have. X) I'm not sure which would win a battle, in my opinion it could go either way.

To be honest I love both of them, but since currently it has lower votes, I have to go with Zebstrika. :P

Zebstrika all the way. He looks much more intimidating, has a better movepool imo, and is cuter. I would say he would win in a battle against a Galvantula, but that's probably my biased hatred against that little spider. I hate it. Creeps me out. </3

Thank you! Honestly, I first thought Zebstrika would win this poll in a heartbeat, I didn't really notice how many people liked Galvantula.

I mean don't get me wrong, it's a cute ELECTRIC spider, but its pre-evolution is better in design (and friendly). Zebstrika is our first zebra! How is that not amazing? Plus instead of the generic black stripes and white body, GameFreak went with a shade of black with white stripes. I mean come on, the shiny is purple with white stripes! What's not to love? :B

ZEBSTRIKA FTW

She's right, I love Zebstrika cos it's a zebra and I typically love black and white colored animals.

I guess the reason so many voted Galvantula was cos of the Compoundeyes-boosted Thunder. I hate spiders...

Plus, my Zebstrika managed to cream Elesa's entire team. I taught her Attract which really made a difference. It can be awesome if trained right.

This is a toughie one. I'd have to go with...well let me think here.


Galvantula- a Bug/Electric type. Has great Speed and decent Special Attack. In OU tier. Has a decent movepool, with might strong attacks like Bug Buzz, Thunder/Bolt, Energy Ball and so on.

Zebstrika- A mono-Electric type. Has great (a tad faster than Galvantula's) Speed and decent Physical Attack (a tad stronger than Galvantual's Special Attack). In a NU tier. Has a poor movepool to benefit its Physical attacks, which shows more support for its Special Attacks which isn't that impressive.

I'm going to have to go with the bug. The Spider is way more impressive and unique in it's design and typing. Could be a threat in some cases, as for Zebstrika, there are better options.

IT IS MONDAY.

...and thus Zebstrika loses, and PC had downtime til after I went to bed last night and I've been busy this morning and now FINALLY I can make the weekly poll. So yeah this one is unstickied brb doing it.

Sucks though, Zebstrika should've won!

I used both of these Pokemon in my team and managed to hate both of them in equal measure. They're both just so brittle and have such horrible movesets and I really wanted to like them both and I just can't. I just can't, you guys. If I have to choose, I'd marginally go with Zebstrika, as it normally managed to withstand one hit before fainting horribly.

Thundurus!
May 3rd, 2012, 09:13 PM
Galvantula hands-down. Zebstrika's flaw is that it can only learn a few offensive moves (Wild and Flame Charge). Galvantula's 91% accurate Thunder attack with Bug Buzz and pretty good speed made it one of my favorites when i played Pokemon White.

i like both because they each have their own unique strengths :P but the pre-evolve form of galvantula is adorable
