Darmanitan, hits like a truck in every sense of the word. Choice Band Krookodile is alright too but I'm more fond of Darmanitan in general.

I used and liked both, but Krookodile was better.

I went for Darmanitan.. Along my main Black journey, I trained a Darumaka and evolved it and I actually used it more than my starter. Even though it's powerful and can have weaknesses, I loved its power. However, I have never had a Darmanitan go into Zen mode.

I vote on Krookodile, it looks cooler imo. And I haven't used Darmanitan in a fight, so I can't really compare their fighting skills.

My vote went to Krookodile mainly because I'm not fond of Darmanitan's appearance. When I've used them both in-game they've done rather well, although from what I hear Darmanitan is really good competitively.

Krookodile for me, I actually used one in my Black playthrough and she really helped me win a lot of battles.

Not to mention the design is awesome.

(Yes, my Krookodile is a girl)

While I think darmanitan is better competitively, krookodile 's design is really cool. I love the "shades" look.

both are actually quite decent competitively, but neither are considered top-tier.

i would go for mafia croc

Krookodile, its design to me is creative and clever, I love crocodiles and it's also one of the few ground types I like :)

Darmanitan is the bomb! Although I've never used Krookodile, I can say, without a doubt, that Darmanitan's design appeals more to me, and it's a beast competitvly. Darmanitan ftw!

From a design standpoint, Krookodile has a much better concept and design. Although I am not a fan of most bulky pokemon (mostly ground and rock types), I am quite fond of Krookodile.

Darmatian was one of the biggest disappointments of B/W. There was no reason to make another fire/fighting pokemon, especially a fire/fighting type primate pokemon. The only thing that is somewhat appealing are the flame eyebrows.

This one goes to the Krook.

Darmanitan's a pure Fire type though. Unless you count its zen mode.

I'm not really feeling either... My choice is Krookodile, but I find it to be so uglier than Sandile. I do like Krookodile's typing and concept in general. Hahaha 'mafia croc' really fits. I haven't used Darmanitan yet, as the toothy smile and fiery eyebrows aren't exactly for me.

I believe you are thinking of the Emboar line.

I like Krookodile more. First and foremost because of the line that Ash has. Sunglasses Krok <3. The design just seemed to click with me from the beginning. And I found it useful through my White run. So altogether I thought it was quite good of a pokemon.

I like Darmanitan but I really like Krookodile. I used both in my playthrough of Black version, and though Darmanitan was a good Fire-critter, Krookodile just swept the floor with everything that came in its path. It has a really great type-combo, good offensive stats and - while it's not as cool-looking as Krokorok - still has a good design. The gimmick of Zen-Mode Darmanitan did nothing for me, and while I do like the critter on the whole, Krookodile gets my vote in this fight.

As much as I'd like to vote for both Darmanitan and Krookodile, I went with Darmanitan because it hits hard with Sheer Force-boosted Flare Blitzes. Krookodile is also good in its own right for looking like it has sunglasses.

Krookodile is far better in terms of design, but I like battling with Darmanitan more. I don't know which to choose! :<

I don't even like Darmanitan's design I've never used it and I don't plan too even if it does have a high Attack stat. Krookodile on the other hand has a great design, decent stats and helps out alot hence why my vote goes to Krookodile.

Krookodile wins! Darmatian looks too derpy. And probably easier for me to use in battles, too.

I'm glad to see Krookodile is winning. It has the far better design and has a better typing imo and is actually useful for a while whereas Darmanitan isn't as much.

ALSO IF YOU'VE VOTED AND HAVEN'T POSTED, PLEASE PLZ. THX. :3

WE NEED MORE VOTES FOR DARMANITAN!!!

Even though i played through with darmanitan only once and played through with krookadile over 10 times, i still love darmanitan more than krookadile

I mean LOOK AT THOSE EYEBROWS

No way Aquarius, Krookodile FTW!

You gotta learn how awesome he is with his unique typing and his "like a boss" motif.

I loooove Darmanitan. The idea of a physical-based Fire type is just cool. Plus his unique ability if you get him in front of Relic Castle is really awesome!

I enjoyed having both of them in my team, so my decision is based purely on their design. And I have to say that I really prefer Darmanitan's; I just really like the grin it has on it's face, and its awesome flaming eyebrows.

Not too mention he is super chill with his sunglasses. I can't see what is not to like about him he has all the qualities of awesomeness.

I used both when playing through Black/White, and Krookodile was easier to go through the game. Still takes forever to raise their weak pre-evos though

Krookodile is my choise..The first time i played White he was one of my powerhouses..

The name was not original lol Krookodile = Crocodile..

I hate Darmatian Zen mode..it annoys me.. and i find it pointless..

But this is just my opinion .

I would have to say this is a tough choice, Krookodile's speed can't be beat! And Krookodile has the type advantage but Darmatian can learn fighting type moves so it would be difficult to defeat Darmatian if you can't faint it in one super effective move, But Anyways I would totally go for Krookodile <3

I took liking to Krooky as soon as Sandile was revaealed. So Krooky for the win.

This is a tough one since I like the both of them. But I will just go with Krookodile because of its name.
Krookodile = Crocodile, never thought of that.

I used both during my recent replaythrough of Black. I liked them both. I used Darmanitan a lot early story, while Krookodile was MVP versus the Elite Four/N/Ghethsis.

Nica, I think I can confirm that Krookodile wins by a landslide.

Yay for Ground/Dark crocs!

Hard choice. I like to use both, as both Pokemon are great. however, I think Krookodile gets the winning point in terms of design. He is just so much badass.

Darmanitan, though I really dislike its design.
But I prefer it, particularly because it was in my main team of my Black Version, and helped me a lot in my adventure. It's also my favourite fire-type of gen 5, for the same reason I guess.
