Hitmonlee. Offense is much better that defense, and in this case that means Himonchan<Hitmonlee

I usually go with Hitmonchan. Although the elemental punches don't favor his attack stat, they make him more appealing to me. That, and I like his design while I'm not a huge fan of Hitmonlee design-wise.

Hitmonlee all the way!! I love how his main way of attacking is kicks. He also has a better attack stat, and since the elemental punches are still considered Special in the 3rd gen, Hitmonchan is not as appealing as it could be!

On most cases, I would pick Hitmonchan, then on other situations it would be Hitmonlee.

There should be a signature here somewhere.
I wonder where it's gone.

I actually never actively used either in my main playthroughs - even though it was pretty sweet to be given a Level 25 Pokémon potentially before earning the 4th badge. It's probably a good thing I never did use them, really - I never thought of the fact that the Elemental Punches would've been considered Special attacks back then, and so would've been preeeeeeeeeeeeetty frustrating for them not to've been nearly as effective as they should've been!

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

Hitmonchan was my usual choice since I liked his design but in the third gen there wasn't yet a physical/special split so his punches weren't the best. Nowadays I go with Hitmonlee - it does the trick a wee bit better in FR/LG.

I really like Hitmonlee to be honest. Hitmonchan has a better move-pool but I always loved the Muay Tai pokemon. I really hope one day he can learn blaze kick in the newer games. But back in my Red and Firered days I loved the heck out of Hitmonchan. Although he was always replaced by Heracross or Primeape lol

I usually go with Hitmonchan since I kinda like it more than Hitmonlee- Not sure what is it about Hitmonlee that I don't like though. Maybe the design? I love elemental punches on Hitmonchan though.
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.
