Throw because he was useful in White and Sock is smelly.

Because it should've won HotY.

I think Sawk is better for me, since it can sweep with Speed and Attack Power. Though, to be honest, I found Throh to be more life-saving for me, because I already have good Physical Sweepers. Throh was my Best ANTI-Darkrai Weapon :D !!! Toxic Orb+Protect= Poisoned (Sleep Wont affect me) + 50% Additional Power with Guts+Superpower >

It also took out an Arceus with one shot O_O

I like sawk, because he's blue & i'm more of an attacker person (with Pokemon)

Probably would be better with a Flame Orb =D Badly poisoned is not good x.x but nice work nonetheless!

True but....a burn would cut my Attack by 50 %!!!! Thus it can be useless. Paralysis will cause me a risk in loss of turn. I think Toxic will work best, afterall, I don't expect him to survive the whole battle

Sawk, totally, it's low defense doesn't matter because of sturdy and then it can just sweep

I think they're both great in their own ways, but I found myself preferring Sawk. I guess Close Combat is better than Superpower in my opinion as well.

EDIT: And I prefer Conkeldurr as a Guts user to Throh.

I really don't like either...but if I had to choose, it would be Sawk. The coloration and all out attacker suits me more. Plus I like tall dudes more than chunky, short ones.

I don't know why but I appreciate these two Pokémons.
They're original and at the same time not original at all, I can't really explain why I think that...
However I also think they don't look like Pokémon, and I it's not good.
Well, between both of them, I would choose Sawk.
I don't especially prefer it to Throh, but it looks tougher. And also, I prefer blue than red, no matter if it's not a decent reason

Since I don't like any of them, I would have to go with Throh because it has a higher defense.

I like Sawk because of its design, cry and its Sturdy Ability. I also like Sawk because it was the first Pokemon I caught in the rustling grass.
She had gold hair the color of money and red eyes, the color of blood.

I think they're both great since I'm in my fighting type mood at the moment.

But so far I've only trained a Throh so I pick him.

I used a Throh named Brutus in my White runthrough, and he was very useful indeed, so my vote goes to the little red fella.

To be entirely honest, I don't really like either of them that much. They remind me too much of Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street, and they both just look really grumpy.

I haven't bothered using them, but I always prefer Pokemon with more Attack. :3 Therefore, I will vote for Sawk.

Neither of them appeal to me but (somehow they remind me of Ernie and Bert...) I must say I prefer Sawk. I've always preferred offense to defense and Sawk just looks cooler (plus Bert is awesome).

I used sawk in my black party, but only because I encountered him early.

I prefer Sawk over Throh, though both have their pros and cons. I've used Sawk in my Black run, and he plays out pretty well. Even with low defenses he's pretty fast and the Sturdy ability will help him dish out a hit or two before being KO'ed.

I really like the design of both of them, partly because they remind me of the days when I used to do karate. But I have to say Sawk is the more preferred one in my opinion. I prefer a faster and more powerful play style, and with sturdy you really can't go wrong.

It's pretty safe to say that Sawk has won, but hey in the next hour we could get lots of mass votes (of course everyone can continue posting in the thread), but yeah, unstickying (and also voted for Sawk just then!) and the new weekly poll will be up soon :)

From my point of view, Sawk is probably my best bet. I like his color scheme, choice of battling, how cute his sprite in, and his battle cry is adorable compared to Troh. Unlike Troh, Sawk has some moves I've seen others use that Troh hasn't. I prefer speed over defense in the end.

I would say throh because throh has better defense than sawk and sawk can be defeated easily with low defense.
