June 19th, 2008, 4:30 PM
milotic, just because gyradoes is also a dragon type pokemon it dosent mean it'll win exactly you have to know on it's stat and move. milotic can learn moves gyradoes can't.

Gyarados isn't a dragon, it's a Water/Flying type combination.

I vote for Milotic, since it's cuter, graceful and majestic. :3

Gyarados has been one of my favorite pokemon for a long time. I've always thought it looked super cool, and thanks to the physical/special changes in Diamond and Pearl, it's become amazing competitively.

Gyarados is better because it can learn better moves and has stronger stats.

June 19th, 2008, 10:20 PM
I'm not too fond of milotic myself, more of because I think it's ugly as heck. But that's just me :D. I do like the unique way feebas levels up though, that made pokemon better for me.

But Gyarados will have a place in my heart because I remember training a magikarp since level 10.

Gyarados is awesome.

He looks cool, got nice stats, and he's just totally original. One of my favorite Pokemon. Gyarados FTW.

June 19th, 2008, 11:31 PM
Gayrados mainly because it is the original pokemon it rock nothing will ever beat it go Gayrados

June 20th, 2008, 7:23 AM
Well they are two completly different pokemon (IMHO) that surve completley different roles on a pokemon team. You can't really compare them. It's like comparing apples and oranges.

June 20th, 2008, 2:18 PM
Gyarados because it looks cool. Milotic is also good but Gyarados Dragon Dances.

June 20th, 2008, 5:25 PM
It's hard to compare the two. It's hard to evolve Feebass, but you can make it stronger with TMs. Mgikarp, on the other hand, evolves through level up, but you can't teah it TMs, AND it doesn't learn any damaging attacks until level 15. Gyarodos learns different attacks than Milotic, Milotic learns different attacks than Gyarodos. It's hard to compare the two, but I go with Gyarodos because it's from the older gen. :D

June 20th, 2008, 5:29 PM
Gyrados because I always hated Milotic. There was a trainer in Sapphire with one and I could never beat her. >:|

June 20th, 2008, 7:36 PM
Either way, at the end of the day, I always find Gyarados using Flail, then getting confused through fatigue from using Flail. Milotic just sits there and does jack **** with it's wimpy moves while I get asspounded to hell. They both suck.

Garados Rocks is the coolest...
Milotic is the more beauty..

People keep saying "Gyrados is better because he is stronger" etc etc but read the poll. Asks who is COOLEST.

I think Milotic is way cooler.

June 20th, 2008, 9:36 PM
From a competative battling point of view, Gyarados can do many more things. It can be used as a physical sweeper, a physical tank, even a status inducer. It also has a beastly Att with a decent speed stat. Milotic on the other hand, is quite easy to predict and are all usually standard. However, one on one, Milotic will usually defeat Gyarados since HP Electric is very common on them. It can also Toxic stall. I also love Milotic due to it's Marvel Scale ability. It comepletely laughs at status inducers who gave it a 50% Defense boost and then Rest off any extra damage.

As for physical appearance, I feel Gyarados was done injustice by being allowed to be female. Gyarados and Milotic would've been better counterparts than the fail that Gorebyss and Huntail are.

garados has always been on my team and ever since i saw lance's garados in the first games its always been wit me. *votes for garados*

That doesn't change the fact that they both eat sh*tberries. Milotic is just an amorphous flesh-colored snake that I can easily make a joke about a scale-covered phallus with a wimpy entrance noise. It kicked my ass so much that I no longer have any respect for it, and I pound Cynthia's Milotic into the ground every single chance I get.

Gyaridos is the same exact Pokemon, but blue colored. Though, I must say, Gyaridos' entrance is devistating.

June 20th, 2008, 9:55 PM
Well in a competative view Gyarados takes it but for me the coolest is Milotic which is rarer than Gyarados

June 20th, 2008, 11:34 PM
MILOTIC, because it has high defensive stats plus its marvel scale(its prettier than gyarados...)

June 21st, 2008, 1:01 AM
Both to pretty well in competetive battling, but it would be difficult to compare the two. Gyarados is more offensive, with occasional tanking and walling variants. Milotic is almost always a wall, mostly in the Special Defense department. Gyarados has some well rounded stats, though. It can easily take a normal hit and set up Dragon Dance. Taunt gives Gyarados an opportunity to stop walls and sweepers from setting up their stats or Spikes. Gyarados can inflict some massive damage, as Ice Fang / Earthquake does tend to give it a lot of coverage and a massive blow empowered by a couple of Dragon Dances. Gyarados is highly expected though, and the number of counters for Gyarados remain vast. Thunderbolt is a common move tied in with Icebeam, to form a fearsome BoltBeam combination. Faster Pokemon, such as sweepers, easily counter Gyarados. Gyarados has a lot of counters, yes, but letting it set up too many Dragon Dances will devastate your team, and it can get past your counters, like Starmie or Gengar. Gyarados sets are mostly the standard TauntDDdos, though some variants exist like the Choice Scarf version or the BulkyDos. BulkyDos is extremely hard to take down, as it can survive Thunderpunch from Infernape and KO, and then Rest off the damage. It can inflict massive damage, too. Gyarados poses as a thread, in this sense. However, I tend to use DDMence a bit more, since it does have better speed, and won't fail to outrun its threats after one Dragon Dance. Milotic, on the other hand, is a fantastic dual wall. RestTalk can up Milotic's Defense by 50%, and Sleep Talk to attack. Hypnosis/Recover/HP[ICE] is also common. Milotic takes status conditions extremely well, and can inflict a good amount of damage. It's hard to take down with both defenses unusually high. It is very bulky, and can withstand a good number of supereffective hits. I love Milotic for this reason. In-game wise, Milotic is quite unique for the rare chance of actually finding it's pre-evolution. Evolving it can even be harder, making Milotic extremely unique. Milotic, if encountered in-game, can pose as a threat to your team. Hard hits encoupled with a bulky build in its defenses pack quite a punch. Gyarados is bulky too, but again Thunderbolt easily knocks it out. It isn't quite unique either, besides the fact that it is a dragon-like water snake that evolved from a floppy fish. But then again, so did Milotic, but Milotic had a more unique way of doing so. Magikarp can only learn three moves in it's life, while Feebas has access to all three of Magikarp's three moves plus various HMs and TMs. Feebas is better, in this case. Competetive-wise, I don't have a preference, really. I think they're both great. Overall, I would prefer Milotic because of it's unique and distinct traits, though I have to argue that it isn't as beautiful as it is said to be. Judging upon coolness alone, Gyarados is more of a beast - Gyarados wins for the cool part.

Milotic, even thought Gyarados is great as well.

June 21st, 2008, 2:54 AM
Gyarados. Nothing resists Dragon Rage!

June 21st, 2008, 3:02 AM
Gyarados. It can DD. Milotic can't CM.

June 21st, 2008, 4:04 AM
Personally, i think Gyarados is the coolest...
Its a dragon type people... who doesn't like dragon pokemon?

June 21st, 2008, 10:42 AM
Milotic for me,gorgeous and along with a good movepool.
