              Hitmonlee. Personally, I think he is stronger because of his attack and speed. If done right, his Hi Jump Kick could be murder!

                I'd say Hitmonlee is probably a generally better Pokemon. However, I like Hitmonchan due to Fire Punch, Thunder Punch and Ice Punch. I really like when moves are super effective and I think they really make it fun. (:

                  The only reason why I like Hitmonchan is the elemental punches.

                    Too bad this is Gen III and there's no physical-special split.

                      Yeah you are right I also like the Element & Different types of Punches Hitmonchan can use. I barely didn't get chance of using Those Punch moves. I only used Thunder punch in my gaming life as of now, Hope get a chance in future.

                      Yeah in a way maybe your correct. He has his Attack and speed. But maybe somehow Hitmonchan can also beat Hitmonlee both hitmons are well in their own, own way. We can't compare the hitmons though.

                        There are many reasons, some mentioned above, that hitmonchan learns elemental moves also, whereas hitmonlee mostly learns only fighting type moves. Hitmonchan's defence is more than hitmonlee, and i like defence, it'll stay longer in the battle. More Tm options will be with you if you have hitmonchan.

                            I was choose the Hitmonchan on blue, but then I feel that sucks.
                            So after that In Fire Red I choose:Hitmonlee!

                              I also used hitmonlee for its Hi jump kick! But its devastating for user too if the opponent uses Dig or Fly!

                                Yeah dig and fly comes with a weakness of Hitmons. But never mind that ! Its great to play with them though.

                                    At first I always picked Hitmonchan for the elemental punches, however when I learnt that Fire, Ice and Thunder Punch where categorized as 'Special' moves, I began to choose Hitmonlee in future playthroughs.
                                    In future Gens though Hitmonchan would prove much more useful with his elemental punches.

                                      Hitmonchan, because I thought punching was cooler than kicking, also I thought he looked cooler (my 7 year old mindset lol)

                                        In name only.

                                        Bruce Lee doesn't do Taek Won Do, he does Jeet Kune Do, and Jackie Chan doesn't do boxing either (He knows it but he's not really a boxer like the professionals. Jackie Chan knows a whole variety of martial arts anyway.)...dunno why people keep saying they're inspired by them.

                                        Also Hitmonchan because boxing >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> taek won do.

                                        That said none of them particularly represent their fighting styles properly. You can be a very defensive boxer, but also an offensive one, but the one thing all boxers (should) share in common is their speed because footwork is the one most important aspect of boxing. Yet Chan is slow, the hell? And Taek Won Do isn't particularly powerful at all, but it's versatile....from what little I did anyway.

                                            As a kid, I always picked Hitmonchan because OMG ELEMENTAL PUNCHES!!!

                                            ...Then, I grew up and realized that those attacks were special in Gen III, thus, Hitmonchan would be crap at using them, so I started picking Hitmonlee from then on.

                                              Always Hitmonlee.

                                              Hitmonchan has more varied moveset, but Hitmonlee's power is too great to overlook.

                                                I always chose Hitmonlee because Bruce Lee. And I liked it's design a lot better than Hitmonchan's.
