Although both are great Offensively & Defensively, I prefer Gigalith. For one I've used Gigalith in White and it helped me out alot with it's high Attack & Defense, Excadrill I'm going to be using in Black as I've heard great things about it too but my vote is for Gigalith.

May 13th, 2012, 3:37 AM
Excadrill all the way, has good typing, awesome attacks, good Speed and Attack stats, excellent abilities and not to mention Iris (one of my fave Best Wishes anime characters) has one herself that's totally badass!

Yeah, I'm on Team Excadrill. Sorry Gigalith fans, but pure Rock-types with pitiful Speed just don't make it onto my team.

Excadrill is so badass awesome it got banned to the Uber tier, giving itself a rival in Garchomp. Coupled with Sand Rush, a beneficial nature and a sandstorm user, you have one heavy hitter.

There's nothing I like about Gigalith, save Sturdy. But I absolutely love Excadrill. He's a frickn' uber for a reason. Excadrill FTW!

I can't help but say that my vote goes for Gigalith i always liked slow Pokemon and it's awesome design wise and compared to Excadrill at least it can live after a Ground type move (AKA Earthquake) so yeah my vote goes to Gigalith (and the fact that it's like the Geodude line makes me like it even more).

Excadrill is one of the best Pokemon to come out of Unova for so many reasons: look at how cool and stylish and funky it is; look at its awesome typing and cool moveset; look at its amazing Attack and HP stats; and don't you just want to pet it slightly? If you tried to pet Gigalith, you'd probably need a tetanus shot afterwards... yeesh!

Wow, I prefer Excadrill, and by far. I don't especially like it, but I appreciate its double type. And, we needed another mole Pokémon.
Concerning Gigalith, it's just one of the many awful-looking Pokémon of the 5G, it and its pre-evolution. Seriously, a gemstone Pokémon, it was a good idea, but Gigalith only looks like a monster drawn by a kid (anyway I though of that when I saw it the first time). And, we have way better rock-type Pokémons... Even if Excadrill isn't especially strong, it's double-type is almost undivided.

Purely going on design, it's Excadrill by far for me :)

May 13th, 2012, 4:19 PM
Excadrill all the way. Its design is cool, and it has a high base 135 Attack, despite being only 2 feet tall. It can also sweep through most teams in Sandstorm thanks to Sand Rush.

May 13th, 2012, 4:26 PM
While Gigalith has by far the cooler shiny sprite, I went with Excadrill. When I look at it and think of its power, I just think how cool it is. I tried to use Gigalith competitively once and it just dragged me downnnn. D;

Excadrill just positively destroys. I don't know what else to say about him other than that. There's not a single offensive based requirement that he does not excel in.

May 13th, 2012, 7:07 PM
Y'all are crazy, Excadrill can easily defeat Boldore and is much more powerful :3

May 13th, 2012, 7:29 PM
This is a question? Excadrill all the way. Much stronger, faster, and just...a better Pokemon to use, imo. I think it looks better too.

May 14th, 2012, 1:17 AM
The only thing that Gigalith has is awesome shiny colours, that's it. Excadrill has a cool design and good typing. Not to mention being wonderful competitively.

May 14th, 2012, 1:20 AM
I don't care about stats. Gigalith actually looks cool and reasonable as a Pokemon. Granted, it's a rock but a -sentient- rock. It still work as a rock with that design. Excadrill...has a spike extending from it's head...why...just why...

May 14th, 2012, 3:09 AM
Voting only by design I think Gigalith looks way more awesome, I also really like it's shiny sprite.

May 14th, 2012, 4:23 AM
I've never used either, but I prefer Excadrill in terms of stats, design (though I think Gigalith's is also pretty cool) and typing.

May 14th, 2012, 4:37 AM
What's weird about the two subjects here was that their pre-evos were the only Shinies I ran into so far in Black.

I encountered a Shiny Boldore in Twist Mountain, but sadly ran away.

I did end up catching a Shiny Drilbur in Chargestone Cave. He is now an Excadrill.

So, I see Team Excadrill is currently outranking Team Gigalith. I know that Excadrill's attack diversity is much better than Gigalith.

I love excadrill cause of its typing (steel types are the best) but this round i went with looks. Gigalith looks so hardcore just look at him! If it were a battle between the two I'm pretty sure he would lose (unless excadrill uses dig for some reason and giga goes for the eq) but judging by looks the spikes and sharp rocks goes well on him. excadrill on the other hand has random red splotches and the horns on his knees looks off. Gigalith all the way

May 14th, 2012, 10:13 AM
Excadrill. There's absolutely no contest here in my mind. It's 500billion times better in battle and looks 800% cooler. Plus it's a freaking mole omg cute. <3 Also I adore Steel types and Ground types but I love fast Pokemon so yeah, it quadruple wins. :3

May 14th, 2012, 7:40 PM
There both powerhouses in offense but excadrill is better because it is more useful if gigalith was rock/GROUND THAN i would have used it because imo gigalith is better looking than excadrill

It's not a Pokemon to take for granite. True, its appearance is nothing to marble at, but if I remember, and don't quartz me on it, but it's also the only third stage evolutionary Pokemon that's a pure Rock-Type.

But in all seriousness, I love Gigalith much more than Excadrill.

May 15th, 2012, 6:02 AM
This is going to be obvious for me... EXCADRILL FTW!!!
I love this pokemon, great attack and HP stats, nice moves and beasting abilities makes it a great pokemon...

One only needs to look at the competitive value of both Pokémon to see that Excadrill is superior in just about every way. It battles at the top of the mountain in the Uber tier, while Gigalith is all the way down in NU.

A very easy choice, here.

I have both Excadrill which I caught fairly late in the game and a Gigalith which I caught early in the game. Every time I used Excadrill, it was brutally murdered by the opponent before getting off any good hits while Gigalith tanked everything like a pro. I used Gigalith all the way through the story.

My vote is for Gigalith.

May 15th, 2012, 9:17 AM
Gigalith isn't that great of a Pokemon at all and it's ugly as heck. I don't understand why people like him, as he isn't even used that much and obviously for a very good reason why not.

However, Excadrill within a Sandstorm weather team is amazingly dangerous. He can kick @$$, and I love using him on the sideline with Garchomp and Bronzong!

So Excadrill is a win-win. I'd be surprise if he loses this poll

May 15th, 2012, 11:14 AM
I voted for Gigalith, although I never used it (nor Excadrill). When I first saw these two, I though Gigalith looked AWESOME. I mean, it's not just a rock, it's a BIG,BAD ROCK. And I personally just don't like Excadrill's design. It's stats are beast, I admit that, but I just like Gigalith better.

May 17th, 2012, 2:27 AM
This is difficult because I like them both. n_n Though I've actually used an Excadrill before (lol, I remember seeing so much of it in OU). It was pretty good no doubt. I think it'll get my vote just because I've actually used one and not so much Gigalith. But they are both great Pokémon!

Excadrill for sure. It's the Pokemon version of Neo Spacian Grand Mole.

May 17th, 2012, 1:18 PM
Im currently in love with my sword dance excadrill. I've always been a primarily offensive battler and his stat spread and typing work very well for me. I like gigaliths sprite but excadrill takes it.

May 17th, 2012, 3:17 PM
I don't like the looks of Gigalith, I mean it's just a rock with eyes...

While Excadrill is a badass steel mole! well that and it has good typing and stats...

Excadrill for me, personal favorite when it comes to design and typing along with the godlike Attack Stat and sweet effects.

I quite like both, but I have to give the nod to Excadrill. It's a mole with a drillbit for a helmet, backed up by a great typing and tremendous stats. Gigalith is just a rock. A big, monstrous rock, but a rock nonetheless. Though I like it, Excadrill trumps it in every way.

May 17th, 2012, 9:51 PM
You need to trade Boldore to get a Gigalith, I don't like Pokémon you need to trade. Otherwise Gigalith seems interesting, but not enough to be chosen before Excadrill.

May 18th, 2012, 1:27 AM
It's close in my opinion, but my vote's for Excadrill. :)

May 18th, 2012, 1:31 AM
Excadrill. He looks cooler than Gigalith, has nice moves, and I don't have to trade/have 2 DS's(lol forever alone)to get him :D

May 18th, 2012, 1:51 AM
Gigalith - The B/W version of Golem (need trade to evolve...), above average stats for a typical rock type

Excadrill - B/W version of Sandslash, but with added metal typing and crazier attack power and stats (sandstorm+sword dance imba).

No contest.

May 19th, 2012, 9:46 AM
Overal I'd choose Excadrill. It's better competitively, and also has a better design IMO. The only thing better about Gigalith is its color palette.

May 19th, 2012, 10:45 PM
I'll vote for Excadrill :)

May 20th, 2012, 2:24 AM
excadrill. It's just so badass it is hard to not vote for him.

Plus, I am not in good terms with trade-related evolutions

Excadrill. He is to kool for school. :D

May 20th, 2012, 3:54 AM
Sadly the only time I used the Roggenrola line was during a Nuzlocke run that I couldn't complete. As Boldore she was a real defensive powerhouse.

In my current Black run I have Excadrill in my party and he's just ripping through everything and everyone. Good defensive typing with access to STAB EQ? Got my vote.

May 20th, 2012, 4:05 AM
Sunday night, sooo time to unsticky! Excadrill seems to have won, so wonderful. I'm on some kinda winning streak here with what I'm voting for. :3

May 20th, 2012, 4:14 AM
Gigalith and its pre-evolutions drove me nuts with their sturdy ability in White, plus I used an Excadrill in my first run of my White, so Excadrill is the obv choice for me.

May 20th, 2012, 5:32 AM
I'm so glad I was on the winning team this time!

Let's hope the next one is even better!
