Sup? This week we have... two Pokemon that don't really attack that much without the aid of status (Liepard makes use of Swagger in competitive, and idr what Watchog does but in-game it used Hypnosis a lot!)

When comparing the two, I want you to also base it on which you'd use competitively, which do you think has the better chance, which you used in-game, which you like the design-of best, and what strategies you think one could use to beat the other. Each week these polls will continue until all combinations and tiers are used up (each Pokemon compared will be from the same competitive tier). To find out more about tiers, and how you can get the most out of these Pokemon, check out Battle Center. So which do you choose? Don't forget to post in the thread when voting in the poll, either!

I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥

Liepard definitely. I find them a more formidable opponent, and Watchog is annoying!!
Still young but no longer impressionable.

I picked Watchog cos it has a better movepool than Liepard and also Watchog can learn some helpful status moves like Thunder Wave and Hypnosis.

Also, I hated Liepard cos too much of its stats focus on Speed. Watchog is at least more balanced, being a Normal-type and all.

Ugh I hate both these pokemon... Personally though, I'd rather use hypnosis over swagger. And I hate Liepard just a little more, so I'm going with watchhog.

Liepard is the obvious choice for me. As I see it, Watchog is almost completely outclassed by things like Kangaskhan, Tauros, and even Zangoose, all of which can abuse their respective abilities, are able to deal/take hits better, ect ect. At least Liepard has Prankster on it's side.
Nothing to see here.

I honestly hate them both, but if I had to choose between them I'd go with Watchog just because its design is relatively cuter than Liepard's. Neither of them are Pokémon I'd consider using in battle because, well, they're just plain not good haha, but I suppose Watchog does have some more interesting strategies to play around with than Liepard so it takes the win for me. Also Dark types are scary :(

I tried using both Patrat and Purrloin early on in my game on White, but neither of them ended up being that useful to me, and were boxed early in my journey. That being said, I did slightly prefer Purrloin (and in turn, Liepard), mostly because I preferred it's type and design. While Watchog has a slightly better movepool, it still isn't good enough that I'd ever try using one on my team, so I'll have to pick Liepard.

I'm not a huge fan of either. Both pre-evolutions have a strong point:

- Purrloin is immune to Psychic types, which could prove it semi-useful if taken to the E4 against the Psychic user
- Patrat can have Pickup

Pickup is lost upon evolution, however, unlike other Pickup users. Therefore, Patrat's potential usefulness drops to a fraction, if anything. Purrloin wins. Liepard gets the vote.

Well, against the Psychic user in the Elite 4, I'd much rather use Krookodile, since it can deal loads more damage, plus can take out a lot more than Liepard.

Watchog does have Hypnosis and Hyper Fang, which make it decent, but Liepard is a Dark-type Pokemon. So... Liepard as my vote.

@ Purrloin point: Except that not everything runs just psychic and I'm p sure Gothitelle would outspeed. :x

I voted for Liepard btw, because I have had experienced being annoyed by it n____n;

Hey, I never said I'd use Liepard in the E4. Just that it's more useful than, say, Patrat. :D

I tried both in game and they felt like a waste of time. I voted for Liepard simply because it has Prankster and can make good use of it.

I love Watchogs design, though! It's a shame it's awful.

I dislike both Pokemon in-game. Liepard is too frail to be of much use while Watchog looks....freaky..with its huge red eyes and stiff, straight tail. Urkk. >< But if I had to choose between the two, I guess I would choose Liepard, simply because Dark-types are awesome.
