Hitmonlee. It looks more like a creature (unlike Hitmonchan).

Hitmonlee is stronger by Attack stat,
while Hitmonchan looks awesome with his punching gloves.

I chose Hitmonlee purely because he was cooler to me.

I always chose Hitmonlee because i like kick boxers.
Hitmonchan i think would be better in battle because of its diversity.. As being to have moves such as Thunderpunch.. Icepunch.. Firepunch.. Ect.

The first time I played Leaf Green, I picked Hitmonchan. I didn't understand this Pokemon, if you can even call it that. It just looks like a person to me, not very creative..

Hitmonlee on the other hand has a much more creative design, and stronger. I liked him a lot more. That's just my opinion though.

I have always picked Hitmonchan due to the elemental punches (not realising they were special) and preferring its design over Hitmonlee (and Hitmontop over both of them). Now though, Hitmonlee is growing on me - I may use him next time.

I liked Hitmonlee, because its kicks dished out massive damage, and it looks cool. Like a mexican fighting bean.

I've always liked Hitmonchan a lot more. It just looks awesome, and punching is cooler than kicking. I also ran into one in my randomizer Nuzlocke, so I guess it was meant to be.

I chose Hitmonchan a lot but I would suggest Hitmonlee more as the Special based Punches from Hitmonchan (Ice, Fire and Thunder) while are somewhat effective, Hitmonchan's Special Attack is low so those elemental punches would not be as effective as they came to be in the NDS era onwards.

Since I first chose Hitmonchan in my Yellow playthrough, I continued this habit even in Fire Red =)
I guess I chose him because of elemental punches as Yellow did not have the same mechanics as newer versions nor I knew about game mechanics =D
And since I like habits, I chose Hitmonchan. Also because I did not plan either of them to be part of the team so I did not have to think about it.

Hitmonlee, because he looks cooler, has a much higher firepower in the form of Reckless, Hi Jump Kick and 120 base attack, and Rapid Spin. Oh, and a much stronger Sucker Punch. I still like Hitmonchan, though.
Escavalier literally is 2HKOed by Stoutland Fire Fang, Metang was undoubtedly the much better choice.

If you talk in terms of Attack power or batting spirit than Hitmonlee is definitely the man... But Hitmonchan could win as it knows variety of Attacks like Elemental Punches..

I think i always would choose Hitmonchan, because of the elemental punches, but i almost never used them by the time i got them, so it was pointless anyways.
