Couldn't find Crustle's DW art. Therefore you get a sad Weekly Poll this week. :(

I like Crustle's design better, although they're both interesting concepts. A hermit crab and a Pokeball mushroom? I'll admit I've never used either of them in game or competitively before. Even though I've lost because of Amoonguss before (lol) in competitive play, I'll still go with Crustle because I like its design.

I picked Crustle cos it learns good attacks and it can hit really hard after a Shell Smash boost.

Amoonguss just didn't suit my playing style, so yeah Crustle for me.

Crustle. As much as I LOVE Amoongus' huge HP, Crustle's Attack, movepool, and design make it my choice.

Crustle for me. There's almost nothing cooler than a hermit crab carrying a block of earth rather than a seashell on its back. It's also decent competitively.

I'm not too fond of Amoonguss because its design kind of creeps me out.

Crustle, definitely. I prefer Pokemon with some nice Attack, and it looks really cool too.

Amoonguss looks a bit odd, though I did use it a bit though

The clump of earth of Crustle's back just looks so unnatural to me, even for a pokemon; so my pick is definitely Amoogus. I love it's concept and it's design and appearance is pretty cool, I especially like it's pre-evolution foongus, mainly due to how they act in the anime -- so cute!

plus if I didn't vote of Amoogus then my pair will ttly bash me. :( but he's still amazing k <3

AMOOONGUSSS BABY

It's such a toughie! <3 It's so strong with the greatest abilities and wonderfully curious moves alongside great stats to support it and it looks amazing! Plus it evolves from the single cutest Pokémon EVER. <3 Although I do adore Crustle too so this was a tough one :c

Amoonguss is highly competitive, especially in double battles, has a great concept, and a really high-pitched cry. I have a soft spot for him and his adorable silliness!

Amoonguss all the way. Its design is strange, but I love the concept, though I prefer Electrode in the role of the Pokéball Pokémon. Then it's pretty strong, I never used it but it was sometimes a pain to beat, contrary to Crustle that didn't give me any difficulties.

Crustle's cool design tips the balance in its favour for me, personally. I've never had much time for either of these critters, and while they both do have things going in their favour (Amoonguss' cool name and crazy-good HP; Crustle's typing and movepool), it all comes down to their designs. Of which Crustle takes the cake. I'd probably never use any of these critters in a team, but this was a surprisingly tough WP to answer this week!

Another tough one for me to answer. I like Amoonguss' design, and I absolutely love its pre-evolution. I also adore Crustle's pre-evolution, but I'm not as big of a fan of Crustle's design. The squareness of the shell has always bugged me for some reason. I've used Amoonguss before on a team before, and it was fun to play with, so for this reason and the reasons stated above I choose Amoonguss.

I like Crustle more than Amoonguss overall, more appealing design and a workable movepool win me over easily. That and Amoonguss is just plain lackluster in general if you ask me so it's not much of a contest there.

;__;

I'm picking Crustle because it's sad and originally, ages back, it was one of my favourites! I REMEMBER ISHIZUMAI. I THINK. IT WAS SPELT SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES (DWEBBLE THAT IS OH GOD I DON'T KNOW IF I EVEN SPELT THAT RIGHT).

But yeah Crustle ftw n___n PLEASE WIN!!!

Crustle has my vote, I like it's design compared to Amoongus and it's more on the offensive which is my style.

I voted Crustle as it's a nice stealth rock user in the lower tiers.

I like Crustle's design more, however I voted for Amoonguss. Ever since I saw it being used a lot at a local battle tournament and bred my own, it has been a key part of my team and a very successful one at that. Spore and Rage Powder are lovely in double battles.

Crustle hands down. I've used one in-game, and I absolutely loved it. Plus a Hermit Crab wasn't something you really think about having for a Pokémon, but when you do it's just so ideal.

Amoonguss, a mushroom was a fairly great idea too. But were the Pokéball hands really necessary? I mean what are they fungus balls? Seriously, I thought the Pokémon would look just fine without it. It would still be less attractive compared to Crustle and even both pre-evolutions of both lines, but it would be better. n_n

Not to mention Crustle has a far better name than Amoonguss. It's simple! If you're not used to talking about Amoonguss it's kind of difficult to remember how many O's and how many S's are used. I'd rather name my pet mushroom Bob.

As for the aspects of both in battling, they're both decent and I'll give Amoonguss that. But I've actually used a Crustle for battling and it was really nice to have on my team. Amoonguss doesn't give me the impression to want to use it, and so by far Crustle got my vote. :B

CRUSTLE FTW

DEspite their looks both of them are actually very decent pokemon.

Amoonguss can annoy the hack out of any team with Spore (100% SLEEP MOVE) then giga drain or switch out and back in later to take advantage of regenerator ability. With the release of BW2 its touted as one of the pokemon to watch for in the competitive OU tier

Crustle has one of the best selfboosting moves in Shell Smash, plus its typing is offensively good

going with amoonguss anyways. Such pokemon are always underrated

I like Crustle. It looks better, and I had a much better use of it in my Hall of Fame challenge. Foongus was awful. :/ Just...awful. I don't think it beat anything when I did that run. So it was my team's death fodder lol.

I picked Crustle, because official artwork and it's kind enough not to inflict statuses on my Pokémon. :(
