the ultimate fire pokemon battle between all of the fire dogs:

Will it be Houndoom: the devlish flame hound who's inflicted burns on the opponent never heal? or will it be Arcanine: the legendary fire dog who has fascinated chinese people for centuries? or will it be ninetales: the elegant fire dog with a fierce side? YOU CHOOSE!!




by the way...i choose HOUNDOOM!! it looks the best and is the coolest!

My pick goes to Ninetails. He has a great defense and good attacks.

My friend at my house picks Arcanine, but he doesn't know Pokemon very well.

Houndoom, I find fire/dark rather unique. Plus it makes an awesome special sweeper. After a pokemon with calm mind baton passes to it

In terms of appearance, Ninetales is definitely my favourite. It works decently in battle too, but I can't deny the sweeper qualities of Arcanine and Houndoom.

I'd say Arcanine. Because unlike Houndoom, it can actually take a few hits without fainting.

But even though Arcanine is the most useful in battle in my opinion, I still like Ninetales more. :3

You're not racing when you're battling. And Ash's Bayleef, beat Arcanine in a race in one episode. O_o

Now shut the hell up and stop crying because no one picked Arcanine. We are allowed different opinions than you. Get over it...

Technically...no...but anyway...

I'd also say Arcanine, but not only for its speed, although that is an attractive point. In my opinion, it is strong, with a good defense and attack, as well as special attack, rather than just special...like the others...

Well thank you to the four people that have posted the same thing. Apperently we're not racing.

Personally I like Houndoom because of it's half-dark side therefore it learns Crunch. Any poke with Fire Blast and Crunch in the same moveset has gotta be number one.

I choose for Houndoom.



Bad things of Arcanine and Ninetales:
Fire Stone Evolving
Ninetales: Aren't that cool...
Ninetales: Doesn't learn any attacks...
Ninetales: 6/10 for all stats...
Arcanine: 8/10 for all stats...
Good things for Houndoom:
Looks, attacks, stats, attacks, everything! It's the number one. 10/10 For the POKéMON HOUNDOOM.


PS;;; (Mightyena is just a bad copy.)

I would vote, but I have a biased opinion. *Pokes name and avatar.* Houndoom learns Crunch. And has freakishly high special attack.

My pick goes for Ninetales. =3 If you think realistically, its vulpine characteristics make it a sly and swift competitor, so I can imagine it would be able to strategize quite well in a battle on its own. X3 Also, Ninetales is so pretty, so I'm biased like that~ XD

Well, my imidiate answer would be Arcanine, but if you really think about their stats, Ninetails is stronger in alot of ways. I have Ninetails on LeafGreen and its my best Pokemon. ; Some people think it has a weak defense... if thats true then I wanna know what Ninetails their basing this information off of....XP My Ninetails has an awesome defense.

( I love Houndoom... but I'm not even counting him... ; )

So yes... I vote for Ninetails.

(That was hard...because are three of my favorite Pokemon... ><; )

I'd say Ninetails looks the best. I like Houndoom because it learns crunch, but I like Ninetails a lot more.

I'd love to say the breath-taking Ninetales...it is very swift. But Arcanine would have the best chance I believe. But I'd love Ninetales to have the edge on luck and win!

I'd go with Houndoom. Unlike the Arcanine and Ninetails Houndoom is also a dark Pokemon which gives it and advantage.
