I'm not really sure if I have a favorite, considering that all three can be caught within the games, but if I had to say, mine would be Zapdos (pulling from the hat).

Poor Moltres is so behind in votes. :(

Zapdos is usually the first one I catch and is always super useful if I'm stuck in the E4. He's also my favorite type, so Zapdos all the way!

I love Articuno. It is the most elegant of the three birds and is really beautiful too. Just look at that flowing tail and those blue plumage feathers! Zapdos and Moltres are no match to Articuno in terms of beauty, that's for sure. If I ever saw it in the wild in real life, I would just stop in my tracks and just, you know, stare at it.

I've always liked Zapdos the most.
I love his design and color pattern, and i think he look the most fierce out of the trio.
Plus his typing always made for a good pokemon to use in battle

Competitive-wise it is definitely Zapdos, doesn't have a crippling 4x weakness and only takes 2x damage from 2 types so overall it's quite good; it does have quite a limited movepool though. ;_; Articuno wins for looks, it just looks so cool and cute and I just o3o

Moltres can go die in a hole tbh

As you can probably guess from my username, I chose Moltres. It was the hardest one of the three for me to catch considering I had already used my Master Ball. I really liked the look of this Pokémon and was in my opinion, boss.

I caught Moltres in a Great Ball after I ran out of Ultra Balls. I think that's all I need to say.

Moltres was my personal favorite, as it is a simple, yet fiery birdy. (Budumcha~)

It's simple Kiwi like body and the fact it's on fire make it quite appealing to me, but I'm a general Fire Type lover~

My favorite is zapdos because of it's appearance (a thunderbird) unique typing, well rounded stats, great movepool, and its viability in the competitive side of pokemon battles. =)

Zapdos is the better of the three. It looks cooler, it's faster and it has a really useful Electric/Flying typing which allows it to run powerful moves like Thunder and Fly.
Escavalier literally is 2HKOed by Stoutland Fire Fang, Metang was undoubtedly the much better choice.

I always loved Zapdos the most, but I used Articuno most in the elite four because he could help me with Lance, and I already had Riachu so I didn't need another electric type. and Moltres is good, but he always sits in my box.
My Favorite Pokemon!!

My favorite was always Moltres because I love Fire Types and their designs. But I don't like that it losses half of its hp from Stealth Rock. :[

I really loved fire types when I was a kid so Moltres used to be my favorite, no question.

As I've grown up though, I've really started to appreciate Articuno's elegance and it was always the main Pokemon I liked to use in Pokemon Stadium when fighting the elite four, so I have to go with Articuno as being my favorite.

I always catch all three whenever I do a standard run through of the Kanto games.

[Zapdos Looks badass]
[[Moltress Looks weird]]
[[Articuno Looks girly and Looks like it has a beard]]

Last but Not least Since Moltres beats articuno [Flamethrowered] and Articuno dosent beat anyone and No one can beat zapdos Whereas Zapdos Can just Thunder these 2 mother******* [Flying Types] And 1HKO

It's a toss-up for me. Zapdos has the best stat spread of the three, Articuno has the best natural move set, and Moltres can make the best use of both physical and special attacks as well as the fact that it learns Sky Attack.

As far as the triangle goes, Moltres has an advantage to Articuno (Fire > Ice), Articuno has an advantage against Zapdos (Ice > Flying), and Zapdos has an advantage to both (Electric > Flying).

Overall it looks like Zapdos, but each has merit. I like Articuno the most, so it got my vote.

I caught all 3 of them and left them in the PC cos its not me to train legendaries. I like Moltres the best, though, when I was young, Moltres was so difficult to draw, I drew a Zaptos instead.
