Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, hens return two years later in Black2 & White2.

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.

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.

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 but the pre-evolve form of galvantula is adorable
