First Generation's Monthly Poll [December 2017]
Welcome to the First Generation's December Monthly Poll! The purpose of these are simple - provide a monthly question relating to the First Generation, and of course, you provide us with your answers and thoughts! If you have any ideas for future questions, feel free to shoot me a message!

...Now, time for this month's question!

"Which of the Nido lines do you prefer? The male or female side of the line!"

Nidoran, Nidorino/Nidorina, and Nidoking/Nidoqueen are a family of "poison pin" Pokémon. Both families can be found in both games, yet the Nidoran♂ is found easiest in Red, while the Nidoran♀ family is more easily found in Blue.

Nidoking is also a more attack focused Pokémon, while Nidoqueen orients towards being a more defensive Pokémon.

Which family do you prefer? Have you ever used one of them in a run? Let us know!

    I like both. I've always been more drawn to queen though because of that brilliant blue color scheme. I like her bearing too. She looks more calm, proud and well more queen-like, a mother ready to protect her young. Its such a contrast to her outraged mate, and I guess that makes them a neat complement to one another because they are so different in their visual syle as well as what roles they would occupy on your team.

    While she may not be a "better" Pokemon than the king, she usually suits my needs a little better. More often I am in need of her bulk than his offensive capabilities, but they're both great.

    Nidoqueen seems to be one of those pair pokemon that is overshadowed by the other Pokemon. Like Gardevoir being more beloved than Gallade I think more people use Nidoking over Nidoqueen. So I am really happy to talk about her this time and give her my vote. This loyal lady needs some love too!

    Nidoran♀ was first Pokemon that I ever caught. I also like her design more. It's more fancy and suited for the Queen title. Nidoking's design is more of the Warrior. I would like to see Mega versions of them. I imagine they would look similar to Tyranitar's Mega.

    Competitive talking, I used both of them and if I remember correctly, I used almost same sets on them. I think Nidoking was little better. But I still prefer Nidoqueen XD

      I like both of them. Nidoqueen is pretty and Nidoking is my favorite color.

        Have used both (and felt that Queen fits me more) but King just looks cooler.

        I remember using Nidoking at level 16 and defeating most opponents easily with Thrash. I used him until his 40s, when I started training other Pokemon. :D

        Thank you,

          Used both in Kanto games, both are fantastic. Though Nidoking like others have said, looks cooler.

          I've always used Nidoqueen, though Nidoking isn't bad at all. I do remember not knowing that there were two separate Nidorans so I got mad because the one I had didn't evolve into the one I wanted lol.

            Nidoking destroys everything on my yellow version for 3ds. I also always thought Nidoqueen’s design was... awkward to say the least

              Nidoqueen for me if I had to pick between the two. Reason why is that Nidoqueen(if evolved from Nidorina prior to level 23) learns Body Slam, one of the better Normal moves in Generation 1. While her Attack value doesn't quite surpass NidoKing's, Body Slam is pretty much the best move either one learns naturally.

                Nidoqueen has a great sprite, but I've always been partial to the male family.

                Looks like Nidoking is winning so far. I myself prefer Nidoking too, love its design and superior strength in battle.
                They're a bit hard to find for me since I normally play Blue ha.

                  Nidoking because he is mala and seems increasingly tough. Also he is violer in color, which is my favorite color.

                    I prefer Queen over King but I also prefer Nidorino to Nidorina... but if we are talking end game I would choose Queen.
