Don't care for either, seeing as the creativity behind their spawn was null and the initial pair look cooler anyways... So if I had to make a choice, my reasoning would be thus:

Throh, out of the two he's the only one I've currently used.. I do plan to pick up a Sawk at some point but for now my vote goes to Throh. I still prefer Sawk's design!

I love these Pokémon vs Pokémon threads.
This one for me wasn't easy to decide as I really like both Throh and Sawk.
I love Throh's design and the fact he isn't as tall as Sawk, which puts me off him.. but I do love that he is blue and a physical nightmare.
The choice between a loss of attack for some defense isn't a bad idea either.
Again making it hard to decide is their abilities...
Guts makes up and more for the less attack than Sawk at the cost of a hax, on the other hand Sturdy hinders other trying to take advantage of Sawk's low defense.
For me it is going to be Sawk solely on the fact it is more common in my version and none of the above reasons.

I hate them both, but I like Sawk a lot more because of it's attack. Besides, Throh is really ugly and I hate its name.

I kinda prefered Sawk over Throh, don't they each have some special
stat,Throh is attack and Sawk is speed?

Anyways, I always liked Sawk, it was quick and kicked butt.

Filth. Absolute filth, both of them. I don't hate them quite as much as Timburr's line, but man do I dislike these guys. If I HAD to choose one, then I'd go with Throh because I like its color scheme better :L

I don't necessarily like either all that much, but if I had to pick one I'd pick Throh, simply because it looks like Mario.

Sawk has the Sturdy ability. Throh does not. While I don't have a fighting preference between them, if I was using a move that required me going last, Sawk would be the better candidate to deliver the OHKO.

Quick note regarding B2/W2 if this may be excused: they become version exclusive in the new games. This is based on my research so far, and this could be different.

I used Sawk in my Black play through because of its better Attack and Speed compared to Throh.

I like Throh the most. Even though Throh have less attack than Sawk, it has very high defence. It can even endure many super effective attacks.

Even though the poll is completed, I choose Sawk. He is skinnier, more nimble and better looking (I don't like fat-ish Pokemon much, some exceptions apply though)

Quote originally posted by AlexOzzyCake:
To be honest I hate both of these Pokemon, 2 of my all time least favourites x.x Although Sawk is the lesser of two evils due to having the Sturdy ability, it makes it a pretty lethal sweeper tbh. Although Throh does get its own signature move which is pretty cool... But yeah, I guess Sawk wins. :3
What move would this be? If it's Storm or Circle Throw, Storm Throw is also learned by Pinsir and Circle Throw is also learned by Poliwrath.

EDIT: Forgot to say, I like Sawk better. I initially had him on my in-game team in Pokemon Black and I like his appearance much more than Throhs. I have yet to battle one competitively, so my opinion could change.
