I'm going to go with Musharna on this one since Swoobat looks weird.

Also, Musharna's stats are much better than Swoobat's.

Both have terrible movepools but Musharna's color wins it for me, not to mention one of my fave Trainers (Bianca) uses one.

So yeah, I like Musharna better of the two.

I never liked Swoobat that much, so I went with Musharna. It's just so totally bulky and its movepool is decent. However, sweeping things with Simple Swoobat seems tempting.

I've used both and found them both helpful in different ways, preference I'd have to choose Mushrana, it's move pool is better IMO.

I liked Munna more than Woobat, and ended up liking Musharna as well. The design and just overall concept of a dream Pokemon is pretty cool.

I've always had problems with Swoobat. Just for that, I'm going with Musharna, as my unevolved Munna is still kicking its (*ahem*).

Swoobat. Ok, its stats are bad, ok, its movepool too, but anyway, I tried both Pokémon in my team and it was very more useful than Musharna. Moreover, I hate slowness. Really. So, needless to say that Musharna's extreme slowness quickly annoyed me.

I voted Musharna. Swoobat only really has speed going for it, while Musharna is bulky enough to take a hit and dish them back out.

Also Woobat (Zubat?). I hated it every time I encountered it in a cave.

Not that I'm a particular fan of either, but I chose Musharna. It, in my opinion has a nicer colour palette and is better to use in battle. It also has Synchronise which is helpful in catching. Woobat's design looks pretty ugly to me and it was always annoying to have to evolve a Woobat by friendship to get one.

Aw I always liked Swoobat! It's weirdly cute and it did well for me when I used it in my team. :> Never liked Musharna's design and I suppose I wouldn't like to have it on my team since I dislike slowness. So Swoobat wins this for me~

I don't really like either of them, but if I had to choose - and the key word is had - then I'd go with Swoobat. It's a second rate Sigilyph, but it's sorta better than Xatu, which isn't saying much. And it's fast, which always goes well with me. Musharna has the uncomfortable duopoly of just looking weird AND being slow. Nope, not for me.

I love them both, but I'm going with Musharna. It's a big, fat, adorable tapir and it wants to give you good dreams and kisses. What's not to love about it? It's movepool is actually pretty neat (especially if it had a high Attack, too) and its HP is to die for (I love me dat HP), and it's also pink. PINK. Makes me love it just because of that. So my vote is a big fat yes to Musharna.

I don't really like either, but I guess Musharna is better. I guess.

Swoobat is an awful waste of time and you should never use it unless you want to be making trips to the Poke Center...alot. Mursharna is pretty bulky and has good SpA.

Musharna, hands down. Swoobat is a waste of space. Also Musharna has mediocre bulk and and it fairs in Special Attack.

COME ON GUYS WE NEED MORE POSTS AND VOTES AND ALL, 15 SOON TO BE 16 IS VERY LOW. ;__;

However! While I'm on that note, voting for Swoobat, purely because of a comic thing I read once and it was adorable and I felt bad for it. :( I want to find it now, actually. But yeah, Musharna's never really had my interest, despite it apparently being better in battle. :x

Plus Koromori sounded awesome at first and Woobat was one of my favourites from the start. :(

Swoobat is so under rated. It is a great sweeper due to it's speed and Simple ability. It's also great for setting up Dual Screens in lower tiers, which not many Pokemon can do- or even do well.

Besides I actually think Swoobat is kind of cute in a weird sort of way XD

Swoobat. Woobat may not be the cutest thing ever, but at least he isn't a floating miniature elephant monster thing. Also, when Munna evolves, she then is a floating miniature curled up elephant bear ferret monster thing with a blow hole that sends out mystical smoke that makes you drowsy. Swoobat is cute and gives you hugs and kisses with his heart nose.

I'm going with Musharna for this one. Never fancied Swoobat. Although Musharna is kinda weak (you'll find that even his high HP will be useless in higher level battles), but I've trained him from level 8 to L98 (going to be 100 soon), so I guess I'm kinda attached to it.

Musharna. Lesser of two evils I suppose. By evils I mean Pokemon I don't care for.

Musharna. I've never used either (though I want to) but I've always had a hard time taking out Musharnas (well a harder time) and can just easily cripple a Swoobat with some rocks... sorry swoobat :/

Musharna because I used one in white and once it learned yawn and moonlight it was unstoppable. It even took out two bug pokemon in my gym battle against Burgh!

Add "Dream Eater" to that. Though my Munna has Hypnosis, which isn't 100% accurate.
