The Claw Fossil because I Armaldo is one of my favorite Pokemon ever. Plus, I thought Lileep & Cradily were really ugly which is still my opinion to this day.
I feel bad for all the kids who didn't get to play Pokemon when they were younger. That would've been a very boring childhood.

I prefer the Root Fossil ( Anorith ) because the appearance is so much better than Lileep's. Plus, Anorith has some really good attack.

Trust me on this one. Choose Anorith, I recently got a lileep and evolved it into a cradily.
What you are about to see is Cradily's Moveset
1 Acid
1 Constrict
1 Ingrain
1 Astonish
8 Constrict
15 Acid
22 Ingrain
29 Confuse Ray
36 Amnesia
48 Ancient Power
60 Stockpile
60 Spit Up
60 Swallow

As You can see, this is not a good movepool whatsoever!

Now for Armaldo's moveset
1 Scratch
1 Water Gun
1 Harden
1 Mud Sport
7 Harden
13 Mud Sport
19 Water Gun
25 Metal Claw
31 Protect
37 Ancient Power
46 Fury Cutter
55 Slash
64 Rock Blast

As you can see the movepools on Cradily are far from great. But they aren't that bad. But Armaldo has better stab moves (Rock Blast, Fury Cutter) opposed to Cradily's ONLY GOOD stab move (Ancient Power).

Now for the stats
Hp 86
Atk 81
Def 97
SpA 81
SpD 107
Spe 43
Obviously Cradily's best stat is it's SpD.

HP 75
Atk 125
Def 100
SpA 70
SpD 80
Spe 45
Am I the only one who see's this difference? Look at the attack stat. Obviously Cradily is the more SpD of the two. But man, 125 attack compared to 81. Obvious Choice. ARMALDO!

It's a choice between a bug-type and a not-bug-type. No decision was ever easier!

I go with Armaldo. Stats aside, I like physical attackers and I'm a sucker for bug pokemon.
Long ago, the 90's Nicktoons lived together in harmony... then everything changed when the 2000's attacked. Only Avatar, the best of the new Nicktoons could save them. But when Nick needed it most, it finished. Four years passed and Mike and Bryan created a new Avatar: Legend of Korra. Although the show itself is great, it has a long way to go before it can live up to the Last Airbender. But I believe Korra can save Nickelodeon.

It's a close call but I prefer Armaldo because it looks more cooler and menacing than Cradily.

I always choose the Claw Fossil. Armaldo is freakin' awesome.

But can't you get the other one from the fossil maniac's house?
