Ooo the battle of the uglies LOL

I'm going with Conkeldurr, solely because he doesn't have a 4x Weakness and Seismitoad does. Not only that, Fighting types are pretty fierce. Even though Conkeldurr only has two weakness to Psychic/Flying types and Seismitoad only has that 4x weakness and non-resistance to Electric. Plus, I'd prefer Swampert over Seismitoad.

Conkeldurr's high 140 attack with moves like Mach Punch, Pursuit make him a huge and bigger(in my opinion) threat.

So first Conkeldurr voter here.

Another good weekly poll! With these two although they are deemed as the popular Pokémon of Unova, to me I'm not really fond of either of them but I guess I'll cast my vote to Seismitoad. I used both in the same team during my first playthrough but I just prefer Seismitoad to Conkeldurr.

Aw I thought Gigalith vs. Conkeldurr would've been a lot more even (same base stats, evolve at same levels into 1st evolution, trade to evolve final evolution). Oh well.

If I had to choose between these two it'd be Conkeldurr though, thanks to his outrageously awesome attack stat, compared to Seismitoad's ugliness and mediocrity.

Conkeldurr furr shurr.
Great HP, huge Attack, huge, and a great movepool makes it an awesome Pokemon.

I went with Seismitoad cos it has good Attack and Sp. Attack plus it has helpful abilities and attacks.

I also love Water-types, cos they are so handy. It may be one of the very few Water-types to lack Ice Beam/Blizzard in its moveset but with a combo of Rain Dance/Swift Swim/Surf it will be something to watch out for.

Sorry, Conkeldurr. Your Speed and movepool were a let down.

Screw herpes toad. I love the Conkeldurr line and when I used Conkeldurr in the Hall of Fame challenge, it was beast. And it found a great niche in competitive play. Herpes toad? Not so much. When I was raising mine, it did fine in battles against Nimbasa stadium trainers, but the E4 lol'd in its face and it barely did anything to them.

I'm sorry, but out of all the English-language names of Pokemon, Conkeldurr has to be up there with the worst... right? Buibapedia gave me some crappy reasoning behind the name, but I ain't buying it. It's as if Game Freak managed to create an actual version of The Incredible Hulk and have its sole role as a Game Freak employee be to name this one Pokemon. If I'm being completely honest, its horrible name is probably the reason why I never even considered obtaining one for myself in Black version. Added to this that its fugly and slow, and it was DOA in my estimations, unfortunately.

Not that I particularly love Seismitoad (or, as I'm now going to call it - thanks to Syd - Herpestoad) or anything... but it's a Water critter, which is certainly money in the bank, as far as I'm concerned. And at least Seismitoad makes sense as a name.

This is what I was thinking, Gigalith would have been a more sensible option in this situation then Seismitoad.

As for the topic I like Conkeldurr since Trip has one, and it is definitely useful in battling as I used it quite often during my Black run.

Going with what some people said, Gigalith would've been the better option over Seismitoad.

Anyway, I went with Conkeldurr. As dumb as a carnie clown Pokemon sounds, it's not to be underestimated; attacks coming from 140 Attack are bound to hurt, especially if said Attack was boosted by Guts and/or Bulk Up.

Conkeldurr all day, Easy to look past his speed with his bulk and attack as well. I've loved Conk from seeing his sprite! I just love it. Also it's access to Drain and Mach Punch + Guts is always a plus for me.

Ayo is this even question? Conkeldurr is a GOD DAMN THUG, this guy dgaf at all, makes the honey badger look like a little biatch. Bulk Up over every thang, winning games left and right? Seismitoad? Who are you? Smh, smh. Copied a typing that already has existed for like 3 gens how is that for originality, and mannnn, you are ugly as hell! This cat puts stunfisk to shame, man even the jynx dont come near this guy, he needs to get a mirror or better yet a stylist mang. n e ways Conkeldurr gmv cos best gg tgod

I've yet had the chance to use Conkeldurr, but I have used Seismitoad, and it wasn't all too bad. Bear in mind that I had zero expectations prior to using it, so it was hard to get disappointed, haha.

I still choose Conkeldurr, though. It has a great attack stat, and respectable bulk with access to priority in the form of STAB Mach Punch to compensate for its low speed.

I am voting based on the middle evolution :3

GUDURR IS SEXY AND AMAZING AND I WISH TO INFRACT ANYONE THAT DOESN'T VOTE FOR IT.
...but please don't take that seriously. XD; No infractions for anybody because Gurdurr/Conkeldurr = that great ^_____^

But yeah I love using Gudurr, it's just so... awesome. Seismitoad is good too, but I prefer Gurdurr's evolution (being Conkeldurr).

I don't really like either of them to be honest. I only voted for Conkeldurr because it is better competitively than Seismitoad. But otherwise I dislike them pretty evenly.

Seismitoad for me. They both look ugly, but Conkeldurr just looks a tad more uglier. :\ Give me Machamp any day. XD Not to mention that I've actually considered using Seismitoad. I like its typing, even if it has been done before. XD 'Tis a shame about the 4x grass weakness though. :\

Conkledurr every day. He makes Machamp look pathetic, he's got a solid move pool, and he can even take a few hits while he sits like a rock.

Seismitoad is kind of sad IMO. If I wanted a solid Water Ground type with an impressive move pool as well as great survival capability, I'd go for Gastrodon. Gastrodon makes all other Water/Ground types jelly.

Unless you're facing a psychic pokemon, Bulk Up Conkeldurr is your worst nightmare. Seismitoad lacks the power needed to be a good set up. Conkeldurr all the way.

I never really liked Conkeldurr, I thought that the whole pig-holding-a-pillar concept was a bit stupid. However, Seismitoad is definitely cool. It looks very toad-like, appropriately, but the general concept of sound is executed well in Seismitoad, with the speaker-like protrusions jutting out of it's body. The two on it's head are especially cool, looking a bit like goggles. While Conkeldurr is awful, Seismitoad is one of the standouts of the mostly-lackluster 5th generation.

Herpestoad? XD
Conkeldurr all the way booooiii!!!!!
Why? He's got two giant concrete slabs that he could use to wipe out pretty much anything! And Herpestoad looks hideous, Conkeldurr....eeeehhhhhh only a little. Also the goatee is cool, what other Pokemon has a goatee?

Both are scary, but Conkledurr looks like my grandpa so he gets my vote.

To get back to the Sunday pattern, unstickying now for a new poll really soon. :3 Also as an extra twist, it'll be one that relates to this one ;)

Continue voting here til the poll ends, and hopefully Conkeldurr winssss.

I can come to the conclusion that Conkeldurr has won.

I'm disappointed, why doesn't Seismitoad get a lot of love? Well, see this poll's results.

I voted Seismitoad so I was total disappointed to be on the losing team. Hopefully I might be on the winning team next time.

Conkeldurr all the way.
Seismitoad is just... Disgusting. Its french name, "Crapustule", made it even more disgust me, since I discovered it with this horrible name (on the other hand, the name Seismitoad sounds pretty good I think). And, its awesome double-type only fit the awesome Swampert, not it.
Ok, Conkeldurr isn't great neither, but between the two I totally prefer it.

Seismitoad, it's kind of cute in a way in my opinion lol :)
