      Hitmonchan is good for breeding purposes, and it's the only one out of the two that can learn the elemental punches. Hitmonlee, on the other hand, has a great movepool and better stats. To be honest, I don't really care about the elemental punches. I'm not the type of person who likes to breed, either. Due to these reasons, I decided to go with Hitmonlee. This Pokémon ended up helping a lot throughout the game, especially when battling against the Elite Four. n_n

      I always loved that Hitmonchan could learn all of the elemental punches, so it was always my favorite of the two (and now three). I also thought that Hitmonlee was a little creepy as a kid having no mouth or nose, so I probably wouldn't have picked it even if it were twice as powerful as Hitmonchan.

      When I was young I was all about offence so I chose Hitmonlee. Originally I thought Hitmonchan was more offensive but looks can be deceiving. But if I were to replay the game I'd choose Hitmonchan because its all about balance man. All about having a good offence, but a better defence.

        I like Hitmonchan more. It looks better in my opinion and I also like Jackie Chan. :3

          I like Hitmonlee better because its design intrigues me more than Hitmonchans.

          I like Hitmonlee better because I always found kicking attacks more interesting and powerful than Hitmonchan. It also, in gen 3, had a much better moveset and learns Hi Jump Kick early at level 26. Those elemental punches may sound cool, but in pre-physical-special split land Hitmonchan's pitiful 35 base Sp. Attack makes them a novelty.

            I've always chosen Hitmonchan in all of my games thus far. The wide array of punching moves that it could learn lead me to pick it over it's kicking counterpart. I'm also not a fan of how Hitmonlee looks so it was an easy choice for me.

              I remember distinctly choosing hitmochan when i first play LeafGreen, but looking back on it, hitmonlee was pretty sweet too. Does anyone remember that one episode in the anime with that one guy training a hitmochan?

                My battle strategy is typically more offensive-based so Hitmonlee suits me much better. I also think Hitmonlee has better speed stats, which works better with my battling style.

                  I have two Firered, so in my first and main I chose Hitmonchan who I prefer. And in my second I got Hitmonlee to trade to my main for my Pokedex

                    I always had trouble picking either (both were great) so if you need fighting type moves desperately, Hitmonlee, if you need a sweeper or something with lots of variety choose Hitmonchan, then just BREED BREED BREED until you get all three :D

                    I always choose Hitmonlee because Hitmonchan freaks me out. What kind of a Pokémon really grows boxing gloves as part of its flesh? It's a creepy Pokémon for that reason and not one that I enjoy using as a result! Hitmonlee on the other hand can kick you into a coma which is pretty cool, right?

                      I chose Hitmonchan because I liked Hitmonchan's appearance more than Hitmonlee.

                        First playthrough I chose Lee because I liked Bruce Lee but then when I got into breeding and found out it was harder to get a chan through evolution I chose Hitmonchan so it wouldnt be as hard getting a hitmon lee.

                          I'd choose Hitmonlee any day for it's bendy legs :D But it really looks cooler to me, but the downside is it doesn't learn elemental kicks like Hitmonchan learns elemental punches :/

                          I always lean towards Hitmonchan, you have all these types of punches it can learn, like Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, etc. I find it extremely helpful in battles when it comes to Hitmonchan, so I always choose it.

                            I love Hitmonlee. It is way better IMO. THe design is cooler and it has better stats yeah i just always picked it. Hitmonchan may be more useful in-game because of the elemental punches but i still prefer Hitmonlee. Maybe I'm sentimental because it was the first fighting type Pokemon i really liked...

                              I've always picked Hitmochan since I was a kid. I loved his design, plus how good he can be if you know how to use him properly. He also has the elemental punches to boost, putting at a disadvantage most types that go up against him.

                                In Leaf Green I chose Hitmonlee just cuz I felt like it and in Fire Red I chose Hitmonchan in order to complete the set. I don't really care for either Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan so I didn't even use them in battle lol.

                                  I never liked the way Hitmonlee looked, so I always went for Hitmonchan. When raising a Tyrogue egg, though, I normally go for Hitmontop.

                                    I picked Hitmonchan on FireRed and Hitmonlee on LeafGreen (If I remember correctly), so I would have both. I never used them on my main team, but that might change when I finish the Pokedex and I play through the region with different Pokemon.
