The majestic psychic/flying Lugia or the fanatical fire/flying Ho-oh? Which pokemon wins your heart more?

I'd go for Lugia. Even though it's not my kinda Pokémon, it strikes me better than Ho-oh in battles. Strong Psychic moves and a devastating Aeroblast can take on Bruno whole team and Lance's too if you teach it Ice Beam (like me).
Anywayz, the first time I used Ho-oh was when I had Typhlosion and an EV trained, great nature, Pidgeot.

It's a hard choice, but I think I would go with Ho-Oh. Lugia is too over rated.

Lugia imo he was just god like, and a little nostalgia of me getting her before I got a Ho Ho doesn't hurt.

Ho-oh's typing and design have always been really off-putting for me. Even its name has always struck me as being slightly weird. Lugia, though far from perfect, has a cool typing (despite its prevalence to congregate towards water), a nicer design, better stats and movepool... yeah. It might be 'overrated' but I'd definitely choose it over Ho-oh.

I'm positive most people prefer Ho-oh but Lugia is much more appealing to me, I do like Ho-oh I just prefer Lugia over.

Ho-oh because I can't stand Lugia, just cause whirl islands are easy to get lost in.

I would rather Lugia. Its awesome and its Aeroblast is just super-powerful. Ho-oh is awesome too, but Lugia wins it for me.

Lugia for the WIN! Come on... master of Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres over master of Entei/Raikou/Suicune. And Lugia is just THAT MUCH COOLER! (Ho-oh is just too hot ) ANDDD, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres were like... THE ORIGINALS.
Anyway, Darkrai 16 out.

I realise the Ho-oh has a crippling 4x weakness to Rock type moves, but I just prefer it over Lugia. Maybe it's just personal bias, since I played Pokemon Gold tons before I touched Silver.

That sounded so wrong.

I like Ho-oh over Lugia because I prefer all out attacking as opposed to defending (Lugia is defensive while Ho-oh is offensive). Also, Ho-oh is more colorful.

Lugia for me. Silver was the first game I got, but I got it because I had preferred the look of Lugia, and I'll also admit to preferring its typing. After using it a lot in my team in GSC as well, partly as a duo surfer/flyer it's still my favourite out of the two.

Lugia. Since Soul Silver/Silver were my preferred games over Heart Gold/Gold, and because Lugia doesn't have any 4x weakness.

Plus XD001 Lugia looked epic in XD Gale of Darkness and Aeroblast is an awesome attack

Most people would prefer Lugia, but Ho-oh is still an awesome Pokemon, despite it being legendary. People would only like Lugia for its looks, because Ho-oh and Lugia are just as powerful as each other.

I'm surprised it's not at least 75/25 Lugia.

Anyway, yeah. I pick Lugia. Especially since he helps so much through the Elite Four.

I always go for Lugia because it looks cooler in my book and I just love it. Thats the reason why I picked Pokemon Soul Silver.

I say Lugia. Lugia is cool with it's colours and body parts. I also love Water-type moves so they are the reasons why I chose Lugia. Lugia has also cool name.

Yeah... real cool name...

HOCK A LUGIA.

And also, I find it sort of weird you say you like his body parts..

BUT I AGREE. Lugia > Ho-Oh

I have to say i like Lugia more then Ho-oh. To me it looks as if pokemon has become a rush... meaning by that it feels and looks as if they are rushing out to get new games and with that they rush to make new pokemon with this said i think Ho-oh looks as if he belongs in the newer games where the design of the Pokemon itself... not the stats just the look... appears to be lame. Plus i prefer Lugia's Shiny over Ho-oh considering I'm a shiny maker.

Ho-oh gets destroyed by rock moves, but I still wub him. <3

I've gotten Lugia sooo many times. I'd like to get Ho-oh every now and then.

Lugia ! I like its double-type, and it's really strong.
Ho-oh and it are two majestic Pokémons, but I prefer it, it has something else than Ho-oh, something better.

I have to say Ho-oh. I used to prefer Lugia, but I was never able to get Ho-oh. Now I'm starting to get used to its looks. I think it looks pretty cool. Rock types may pose a threat, but that's why you carry around 6 Pokemon! ^,^

Lugia most definitely. I'm mostly definitely going to try and catch Lugia when I've finished HG/SS for the second time. Plus the following sprite is just the cutest, accompanying a deadly moveset ;

I'm in the minority, but I greatly prefer Ho-oh. Phoenixes are my favorite mythical animal and Ho-oh is just really elegant and powerful looking. Plus it was the first legendary to appear in the anime and still doesn't have a movie.

I like all the mythology it seems to have in the games too, even having its own tower and the power to resurrect the beasts. Not all legendaries have that kind of power, clearly.
