Since my brother and I are CONSTANTLY argueing over whitch is cooler, Lugia or Ho-oh (personally I like Lugia) I wanted to make a poll to end this feud once and for all. Plese vote one or the other and post below why you think they are cooler. Do NOT bash other people or the pokemon. If Ho-oh wins I'll admit to my brother Ho-oh is cool and if Lugia wins than hopefully my brother will see that Lugia is just as cool as Ho-oh.
By the way I accidently put a "d" instead of a "g" but I don't know how to change that!

Thanks people! I showed this poll to my brother and we both agreed they're awsome in their own ways!
I want them to make a game like Okami (or a sequel) but I'm afraid if they did they might ruin it.
I don't "claim" Pokemon, but if I did they'd all be mine! ALL MINE!
Never mind, I was just over reacting =D

I've always thought Ho-oh was cooler, but Lugia was better.
But then I realized that Ho-oh was a Fire-type and that makes it hot.

Sorry. Shoot me for that.

I have to admit that it used to be Ho-oh because it was very facinating when I had caught a glimpse of it in the first Pokemon Episode "Pikachu I Choose You" and it was also the main Pokemon in my first Pokemon game "Pokemon Gold Version", so it had been my favourite over Lugia at the time.

As the years past I grew more and more fond of Lugia as it had a "dragon-like" resemblence and it's mysteriousness intruiged me into becoming one of my all-time favourites that it is today. I also find Lugia to be the most inspiring theme for banners and icons, that's why I make them! =D

Ho-oh, because I like birds and I like fire. The majority of people however already have and will continue to vote for Lugia.

Wow this brings back memories of Pokémon Gold Version! I've always had a soft spot for Ho-oh. It's physical appearance appealed to me more then anything, and it first appeared on the very first Anime episode. Also the moves it can learn allows for an awesome move set.

I'd say Ho-oh only because its shiny form is awesome, otherwise, Lugia for the sweeter signature move and supereffectiveness. Also what DF said above me, hes got a song...

Because I didn't have have a clue about competitive battling back in the days of Gold, Silver and Crystal, I'm going to say that I prefer Lugia because of the adventure I had finding him on all my versions, the amazing role he plays in Pokémon: The Movie, 2000! He also looks cooler than Ho-Oh and that's my reasoning for you all.
'It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home -- only the millions of last moments . . . nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.'

I prefer Lugia, although it's in game sprites never do it any justice. Looks awesome in 3d on XD though!
Agreed with SRKid, Ho-ohs shiny form looks way better than Lugia's shiny form.

edit: Just noticed that exactly twice as many people have voted for Lugia so far!
Yay 14-7 Lugia!

Ho-oh. That bird will need the love. What's cooler than bringing three Pokémon back to life?

Yeah Lugia is better.

I don't even like Ho-ho's design.

Or it's name.

I choose Ho-oh because it's my favorite Pokemon. I was having a difficult time trying to beat Red on Pokemon Silver, but after beating a cousin of mine (who is a great video gamer), I went back to Red and sefeated him with Ho-oh.

I also like Ho-oh because my favorite mythological creature is the phoenix, which Ho-oh is based on.
