    Darmanitan, hits like a truck in every sense of the word. Choice Band Krookodile is alright too but I'm more fond of Darmanitan in general.

      I used and liked both, but Krookodile was better.

      I went for Darmanitan.. Along my main Black journey, I trained a Darumaka and evolved it and I actually used it more than my starter. Even though it's powerful and can have weaknesses, I loved its power. However, I have never had a Darmanitan go into Zen mode.

        I vote on Krookodile, it looks cooler imo. And I haven't used Darmanitan in a fight, so I can't really compare their fighting skills.

        My vote went to Krookodile mainly because I'm not fond of Darmanitan's appearance. When I've used them both in-game they've done rather well, although from what I hear Darmanitan is really good competitively.

        Krookodile for me, I actually used one in my Black playthrough and she really helped me win a lot of battles.

        Not to mention the design is awesome.

        (Yes, my Krookodile is a girl)

          While I think darmanitan is better competitively, krookodile 's design is really cool. I love the "shades" look.

            both are actually quite decent competitively, but neither are considered top-tier.

            i would go for mafia croc

              Krookodile, its design to me is creative and clever, I love crocodiles and it's also one of the few ground types I like

                Darmanitan is the bomb! Although I've never used Krookodile, I can say, without a doubt, that Darmanitan's design appeals more to me, and it's a beast competitvly. Darmanitan ftw!

                  From a design standpoint, Krookodile has a much better concept and design. Although I am not a fan of most bulky pokemon (mostly ground and rock types), I am quite fond of Krookodile.

                  Darmatian was one of the biggest disappointments of B/W. There was no reason to make another fire/fighting pokemon, especially a fire/fighting type primate pokemon. The only thing that is somewhat appealing are the flame eyebrows.

                  This one goes to the Krook.

                    Darmanitan's a pure Fire type though. Unless you count its zen mode.

                    I'm not really feeling either... My choice is Krookodile, but I find it to be so uglier than Sandile. I do like Krookodile's typing and concept in general. Hahaha 'mafia croc' really fits. I haven't used Darmanitan yet, as the toothy smile and fiery eyebrows aren't exactly for me.

                    I believe you are thinking of the Emboar line.

                    I like Krookodile more. First and foremost because of the line that Ash has. Sunglasses Krok <3. The design just seemed to click with me from the beginning. And I found it useful through my White run. So altogether I thought it was quite good of a pokemon.

                      I like Darmanitan but I really like Krookodile. I used both in my playthrough of Black version, and though Darmanitan was a good Fire-critter, Krookodile just swept the floor with everything that came in its path. It has a really great type-combo, good offensive stats and - while it's not as cool-looking as Krokorok - still has a good design. The gimmick of Zen-Mode Darmanitan did nothing for me, and while I do like the critter on the whole, Krookodile gets my vote in this fight.

                      As much as I'd like to vote for both Darmanitan and Krookodile, I went with Darmanitan because it hits hard with Sheer Force-boosted Flare Blitzes. Krookodile is also good in its own right for looking like it has sunglasses.

                      Krookodile is far better in terms of design, but I like battling with Darmanitan more. I don't know which to choose! :

                      I don't even like Darmanitan's design I've never used it and I don't plan too even if it does have a high Attack stat. Krookodile on the other hand has a great design, decent stats and helps out alot hence why my vote goes to Krookodile.

                      Krookodile wins! Darmatian looks too derpy. And probably easier for me to use in battles, too.

                      I'm glad to see Krookodile is winning. It has the far better design and has a better typing imo and is actually useful for a while whereas Darmanitan isn't as much.

                      ALSO IF YOU'VE VOTED AND HAVEN'T POSTED, PLEASE PLZ. THX. :3

                        The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians use the phrase "Dude, man..." frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they've been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don't think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this.

                        No way Aquarius, Krookodile FTW!

                        You gotta learn how awesome he is with his unique typing and his "like a boss" motif.

                        I loooove Darmanitan. The idea of a physical-based Fire type is just cool. Plus his unique ability if you get him in front of Relic Castle is really awesome!

                        Are all men stupid?

                        That's right.

                          I enjoyed having both of them in my team, so my decision is based purely on their design. And I have to say that I really prefer Darmanitan's; I just really like the grin it has on it's face, and its awesome flaming eyebrows.
