While Cradily is usually a pretty good defensive Pokemon, I generally take the Claw Fossil which yields Anorith/Armaldo. Armaldo only trails a handful of non-legendary Pokemon in its Attack stat up to its introduction, and its few weaknesses and decent movepool always made it one of my better Pokemon in Hoenn.

Claw Fossil over Root Fossil any time. Although Cradily is one bulky Pokemon, Anorith/Armaldo looks so much cooler than Cradily, and its high Attack stat puts it in a great advantage along with a much better movepool. I personally don't favour Grass-types, but that's just me lol.

Claw Fossil for sure. I always thought Anorith and Armaldo were pretty cool and I don't care for Lileep and Cradily's design, although, I haven't used them in battle.

Claw fossil, for me. The RSE fossil Pokémon look really cool, though I've never really used either (but if I were to use one, it'd be Anorith/Armaldo, for sure). Though Lileep/Cradily would probably be pretty decent if it had the right moves! I just prefer the fact that Armaldo is clearly better for attacking and stuff. :P

Difficult, I used to prefer Cradily back when I was playing RSE but since playing Mystery Dungeon Explorers of the Sky I've warmed to Armaldo now too. I think it's pretty level but I'll vote for Cradily because I did use it in one of my first playthroughs.

I always go claw. I've never used either yet (tried for about 5 minutes, didn't like it), but if I was going to use one it would be Armaldo. Cradily's just...freaky. And way to ineffective offensively. I can use slow pokémon but they have to have some power, I'm not much of a wall type in-game.

I like Cradily a lot more, so even if I don't end up using either of them, I tend to pick the Root Fossil.

I've done research this time regarding which fossil to pick and I chose the Root fossil because Cradily is the type of Pokemon I like, one that can be considered an "annoyer" and I love to torment my opponents with Cradily's moveset >=]

While Anorith comes with the claw Fossil and looks cool when evolved, i prefer Lileep because when it evolves there is hardly any weaknesses for it and if combine Ingrain with Giga-Drain, you have a deadly undersea Pokemon

When I was young, I would always get Cradily, and my brother would get Armaldo. Then we would breed and trade so we had both. I guess I have always liked grass more than bug. Too bad Cradily was barely a grass type back then.

While I usually pick offense over defense, I've always liked Cradily more than Armaldo. They're both pretty cool looking Pokemon, but Cradily has a slight edge in appearance and I really like it's unique typing too.

i'm going with the claw fossil. i never really used either of them, but lileep and cradily are just creepy-looking. and armaldo is awesome-looking and can hit for a lot of damage! a glass cannon (high attack, low defense) pokemon is better than a stone wall (high defense, low attack and/or speed) pokemon, in my opinion.

I picked the Root Fossil when I played Ruby, probably cos I liked the Lileep line's design better than the Anorith line. Also, I do love Grass-types more than Bug-types.

I think the claw fossil is definitely cooler than the root fossil.

I always went with the Root Fossil. It's crazy awesome how bulky Cradily can be once it evolves from Lileep.

The claw fossil because I like Armaldo more than Cradily in terms of appearance.

Originally I went for the Claw Fossil because I liked Anorith and its evolution line, but nowadays I prefer Lileep a bit more. Root is my current choice!

Claw, but not by far.

I actually used an Armaldo on my E4 team in my first playthrough of Sapphire - it's still one of my favorite physical sweepers, even though it's a bit too slow. Great design, great stats and great movepool.

Cradily is pretty awesome too though, and in an entirely different way. It's a great staller/annoyer and actually hits reasonably hard for as primarily defensive as it is. And personally, I love its design.

Root fossil for me. I actually am a huge fan of both Armaldo and Cradlily, but I have just been able to use Cradlily better and its bulk is really great in competitive.

Cradily is much better in battle, but I prefer Armaldo simply based on design. I find Cradily to be honestly, somewhat repulsive, whereas Armaldo is this big cheerful beast with pretty markings and one hell of a slash ready to get you - it's a Pokémon I've always adored and I've always wanted to use. Anorith all the way!
