    Lugia was my favorite pokemon back in the GSC days. I always thought it looked bigger and badder than Ho-Oh.

      I love Ho-Oh because of the mythology behind it but I also love Lugia for its superb design, both are also a ton of fun to use in battle as well so my hands are pretty much tied when it comes to choosing one in this case tbh.

        I'll definitely go for Lugia. In my opinion it is one of the strongest pokemon in the game (and one of the most difficult to catch)... Besides, it looks gorgeous, Whenever I play the game, I have him in my patrty. It can beat flying, fighting, fire, ghost, bug, rock, ground, etc.

          For me, it's always been Lugia. He just always so awesome. It doesn't help that the first Pokemon movie I remember seeing was 2000, and that my very first video game (period) was Silver.

            Lugia is so cool. I always thought it was a dragon type, though. I first saw it in the Pokemon 2000 movie, and loved it to bits.

              When I was little, I did not like colorful things (still do not like it as an adult) so that gravitated me to Pokemon Silver because Lugia was not colorful. Once I knew that Lugia can learn water type moves, I knew in my heart that it was way better than Ho-oh because I can keep spamming water type moves like Surf and Hydro Pump. Until this day, I will always pick Lugia and defeat Ho-oh with water type moves :D

                I remember buying Silver back then, and I thought Lugia was awesome. It's Aeroblast attack was just epic. It was actually the first legendary pokemon which I caught easily, using only 1 ultra ball

                  Lugia. Although I'm probably going to end up getting HG, and not SS when I decide to buy one of them, but that's just because of the exclusives.
                  Suicune still has the most nostalgia for me because Crystal was my first Pokemon game.

                    Ho-Oh for me. Gold version was the first in the series I beat, and I've always preferred Ho-Oh's story to Lugia's.

                      They're both powerful beasts but I gotta say Lugia is my favorite.
                      It flies, it is psychic, and it lives in ocean caves. This is too cool to me.
                      Lugia is more beautiful too.

                        I choose Ho-oh because he is my 2nd favourite legendary pokemon (after Shaymin) and he looks better than lugia (I think ) But ..... if I compare shiny Ho-oh and shiny Lugia, I choose shiny Lugia.

                          Lugia, without a doubt. I think it is one of the coolest out there. I definitely have to agree the movie really sealed the deal. Ho-oh always seems so absent, and really has done nothing to win me over. Lugia will always have my heart based on the awesome learnsets, and its role in the anime/movies.

                          Lugia, FTW.

                            My favorite was Lugia. Only because I originally got, Pokemon Silver over Gold.

                            Ho-oh, just wished he looked more like a Pheonix.

                              I like both of the legendaries equally. The only reason I voted for Ho-oh is that I've always played Gold and HeartGold a lot more than Silver and SoulSilver.

                                I didn't expect there were more Lugia fans than Ho-Oh, but I choose Lugia! Lugia is my favorite Pokemon ever. Though I like Ho-Oh a lot too.

                                  Ho-oh was always my first choice, hands down. Version bias ftw?

                                    Lugia is almost like a god like pokemon while hooh comes off as just another bird.

                                      I lean towards Lugia, probably because I started out with Silver and >nostalgia. Also, Lugia can talk in movie 2. Let's see Ho-Oh do that!

                                        I wanted to vote for Lugia,but I played Gold & Heart Gold first,so I went with Ho-oh instead,
                                        It's stats are almost better than lugia anyway.

                                          Well since this is the Metal Generation, as a child I liked Lugia better, he looked cooler, and had a great story in the anime, idk I just liked him better, now I like them equally after playing HeartGold xD

                                            I can see Pokemon the Movie 2000 definitely influencing my preference for Lugia as favourite 'legendary bird' from the GSC series. Despite playing Gold first, I've never really been a fan of Ho-oh (and bought SoulSilver when the remakes were made).

                                              Lugia, it looks awesome! Also, I remember that I'd always clone them and take them to the E4. :3

                                                Aeroblast almost sealed this for me back in the day, but being that I had Gold a newly caught Lugia would never know this wonderful move. Given that, Ho-oh got a bit more battle time from me. I quite like it more these days whereas Lugia I find somehow miss-able.
