View Full Version : Rapidash, Ninetales, or Arcanine? You pick!

October 16th, 2009, 4:12 AM
I personally prefer Ninetales. Second is Rapidash, the last one is Arcanine.
Vulpix is awesome, appearance-wise and technique-wise.

I use Rapidash in most of my DPPt games, and it proved to be quite good. Nice speed, attack and special attack, though its defense is fragile.
And Arcanine..? Meh, I don't understand why people likes it. Growlithe is harder to raise than Vulpix. D:

Ninetails, because it is the Kyuubi!!!!!!


October 16th, 2009, 8:42 AM
I vote for Arcanine. Its much better than the others. :P ( I can't ignore the fact that both ninetales and rapidash are good too. But statwise, Arcanine PWNS them! XD)

And Arcanine..? Meh, I don't understand why people likes it. Growlithe is harder to raise than Vulpix. D:

That's because the hard work pays off in the end. Arcanine is REALLY a good pokemon.

Ninetails, because it is the Kyuubi!!!!!!

No it isn't. This pic is probably made by a fan. (I know coz I too watch naruto! XD)
They are made on the same base(fox) but they are totally different beings. -_-

I like rapidash :D *is totally masculine*

Seriously, I just tried putting a ponyta on my Platinum team, and I was pleasantly surprised when it beat Roark's Cranidos XD

Rapidash. Ponyta was my homeboy when I first played Pokémon Blue. XD

Well, let's see.

Arcanine is fanboy bait and is strong, but its movepool is absolute donkey poop.

Rapidash is fast and can be useful sometimes, but is for the most part rather subpar.

Ninetales has Nasty Plot and a decent movepool to work with.

So Ninetales wins.

Didn't we have a running poll on Ninetales vs. Arcanine? :V

October 16th, 2009, 12:15 PM
Arcanine just owns everyone on my platinum and i think is even better than my magmortar who i just love

October 16th, 2009, 1:21 PM
The only bad point about aracanine is that it cannot learn earthquake. Other then that he's beast.

October 16th, 2009, 2:49 PM
I love Rapidash's design. It's not extraordinary and totally out of the box or anything, but unicorns with fiery manes are just so ... <3333 awesome.

ninetails caus foxes pwn plus it's beutiful, majestic, and strong. And i think arcanine is overated i mean it's like a tiger dog thing idk wats up with it. And don't get me started with rapidash, i mean horses r ok, but this isn't the sattle club!

October 16th, 2009, 4:37 PM
Ninetales for sure. I loved it from the moment I saw it!
Then Rapidash. Its a unicorn. It still amazes me.
Last would be Arcanine. I just never had a thing for it.

^ agreed. XD

this time with extra Rapidash, three Kanto Fire-type other than Charmander, minus Magmar. ;O

Playing with arcanine goes smooth and he looks great and intimidating, so that one comes on the first place.

Nintales on second, doesn't look intimidating to me, but just look for example at this picture:


very beautiful.

Rapidash comes in last, I just hate that pokemon for no reason;).

October 17th, 2009, 2:23 AM
I vastly prefer Ninetales, though I like all of the three.

Appearance-wise, it's amazingly beautiful and sleek in all aspects.

Moveset-wise, decent movepool with Nasty Plot, Will-o-Wisp and Energy Ball coupled with a decent Sp. Atk stat.

Hana, signing out~

I love Rapidash, it was the pokemon that saved my during cynthias reign of terror (eat flamethrowers Roserade).

I like ninetales second best, cos it looks really cool.

I like arcanine, but I hate the sprite for it's back.

Look at my signature...

ya, I love Arcanine :3

October 17th, 2009, 3:29 AM
I prefer Rapidash a lot more now,
I just thought it was so damn hard to level it up.
But it's a cute horsey =/ XD

October 17th, 2009, 4:27 AM
Ninetales is my fave, and Rapidash comes in second.

October 17th, 2009, 10:02 AM
In order;

Arcanine is awesome.

October 17th, 2009, 10:06 AM

Arcanine may be strong but if it has nine tales whipping it. it looses and fails..

And rapidash just purely sucks.

October 17th, 2009, 10:42 AM
I used to use Rapidash all teh time, but then I realized it sucked.

So Ninetales.

October 17th, 2009, 10:58 AM
If we're talking about looks, then I'd choose Ninetails. It's sooooo pretty!
But, to battle with I prefer Arcanine. Very strong.

October 17th, 2009, 11:10 AM
Ninetails all the way!
My favorite fire Pokemon, its natural beauty alone is a win. Of course the Speed and Special Attack are hard to ignore as well.

I prefer ninetails because its epic when its shiny. The other pokemon look weird as a shiny.

October 17th, 2009, 6:55 PM
a fox, a puppy, and a unicorn all 3 of them on fire

i vote for the puppy

I guess I'm odd, since I'm a Rapidash person. :)

I've never really had an affinity for either Ninetails or Arcanine, though don't get me wrong -- I like both. I just love Rapidash. It might be that I've always loved horses/unicorns/pegasus and that's just a girly side to me. XD I think if I had a choice to have one of the three, I could make the most out of Rapidash. I'd be riding it all day, everyday! :D

In Pokemon Platinum, I ended up catching a Ponyta, which later evolved into Rapidash, and used it throughout the game. It was a male though, and I named him Dash. I always pictured Ponyta and Rapidash as females though, so I made up this story in my head (because, heaven knows, I'm not dorky enough already lol) where my Ponyta was the dominant male of a herd, and my character was lucky enough to befriend him, so he passed on the leadership to a younger generation.

October 17th, 2009, 8:43 PM
Ninetales of course!

Tis my favorite pokemon since the first games :3 They really need to make that pokemon part ghost since it has so many moves, and its lore kinda makes alot of references to it being spiritual and all.

October 17th, 2009, 9:06 PM
Arcanine is pretty cool but never really stood out to me. I never really liked Rapidash either, there wasn't anything in particular I didn't like, I was just never drawn to it.
Ninetails is elegant and powerful, so it wins in my book.

October 18th, 2009, 12:15 PM
Hardest decision of my life! xD

Hmmm... I love Arcanine, and I have used it several times, so that's first. :D Personally, I prefer the appearance of Ninetales compared to Rapidash, so Ninetales is second. :D then, it's Rapidash. I actually like all three of them, and although i used a Rapidash in Diamond, it's still at the bottom of my list. xD

1st- Arcanine
2nd- Ninetales
3rd- Rapidash

October 18th, 2009, 12:19 PM
Ninetales is such a (literal) fox....

October 19th, 2009, 2:51 PM


October 19th, 2009, 5:18 PM
Arcanine beats all =]

Rapidash is too eh, while Ninetails gives me a feminine feeling/aura

October 20th, 2009, 8:41 PM
Arcanine, then Ninetales, then Rapidash.

October 21st, 2009, 3:08 PM
It has to be Arcanine. I don't know. I just prefer it more than Ninetails and Rapidash.

There's this connection I have with it. Besides, I don't see Rapidash and Ninetails doing a Flame Wheel any time soon. 8D

November 14th, 2009, 3:50 PM
I vote for ninetales because its really cool when its shiny.

November 14th, 2009, 4:20 PM
I like Arcanine because it is so much STRONGER and looks better.

November 14th, 2009, 7:24 PM
Ninetales for me. I just like it's design the best, I don't really use any of them in the games.

Rapidas! I used to wonder how people sat on the back of one without getting burned (;

November 14th, 2009, 8:42 PM

November 14th, 2009, 10:18 PM
I'm more of a Houndoom and Typhlosion type of guy, but I'll go with Arcanine for this one.

November 14th, 2009, 10:23 PM
I love the whole story, especially the curse part. :3

November 14th, 2009, 11:25 PM
I'd definitley have to go with Arcanine. It just looks really cool haha.

November 15th, 2009, 8:26 AM
I really can't decide between Ninetales and Rapidash. I've used both before, and both are pretty cool. I guess I'll have to go with Ninetales, though. Energy Ball FTW!

November 15th, 2009, 8:36 AM
Ninetails. :)

I don't have much to back that up with, as I actually have never raised a Ninetails. Or an Arcanine. The only one I have raised is a Rapidash in Diamond and I didn't find it to be very powerful. :/

But Ninetails is just cool looking. I mean, so is Arcanine, but I agree with everyone who said that Ninetails has a nice movepool. :P
