I'm not really a fan of these two... but I chose Golurk due to having a unique type combination and a good movepool that abuses one of its abilities (Iron Fist). This thing hits really hard with Shadow Punch!

Cohagrigus just creeps me out plus it has a terrible movepool.

Tough choice, but I went with Golurk simply because it's a possessed suit of armor that flies. That, and it has a good pool of punching moves to abuse Iron Fist with. Cohagrigus also somehow reminds me of Ramses from Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Daaaang. I love both so much, too. D:
I love them both, and I'm a history nut, and I love that they're both involved with a big part of the history in Pokemon, but Cohagrigus looks like he used to be a king, and I have a soft spot for ancient royalty.
I'm going to have to go with...Cohagrigus. Such an awesome physical wall, amazing defense, decent Special Attack, and a pretty nifty movepool. Plus, I love that I feel like he's about to tell me "RETURN THE SLAAAB, OR SUFFER MY CUUUURSE."

    I like Golurk's design better, and I've used it a little bit in game and it was pretty cool. Cohagrigus just looks... scary and I remember when I first saw it I was like "wtf, is that even a Pokemon?" so... Golurk.

      Both are awesome, but I'm gonna go with Cohagrigus. It looks scary & has scary defense to match. But some of you are right, Golurk's Iron Fist Shadow Punch is a Killer.

          1. Great type
          2. Awesome moveset
          3. It can fly??? (really got me shocked when i found that out)
          4. Great design

          and thats it

            ooooh im undecided for this one they both are as cool as the other. I personally had more trouble dealing with cohagrigus than golurk in the game.

              Cohagrigus was actually one of my favourite designed critters from Black and White - and I loved the little jig it did whenever I had to battle one... and yet I'm voting for Golurk in this scenario. It's got a much cooler typing, better stats and while it doesn't look as bad-ass (in a cartoony way, that is) as Cohagrigus, it still looks relatively OK for a ghostly golem. So, Golurk gets my vote!

                I have to say Cohagrigus, who is actually one of the few B/W Pokemon that I can tolerate. It definitely gets it's Egyptian theme done well, without looking all too complicated (Luckily for it, GF decided not to put pointless spikes on Cohagrigus).

                Golurk has an okay design, but it isn't really all too special. Plus, it's typing is all wrong (It should have been Ghost/Steel, I mean it's a giant robot), and it is actually not that good in battle.

                  Cohagrigus was one of those Pokemon where I immediately went "OMG I NEED THIS" when initial images of it were first revealed (I think it was even just its backsprite). I though the idea of an Egyptian mummy for a Ghost-type was awesome at the time, and I really liked it's woogly arms.

                  But I have to say that Golurk takes this for me. A ghostly golem inspired by giant robots and can fly is pretty neat. And I do like how its diverse movepool, which takes advantage of one of its abilities.

                  What a horrendously difficult choice! I love Cohagrigus for its really unique take on an otherwise inanimate object, but I love Golurk for its design, typing, and concept.
                  Normally this would be a tie, but I will vote for Golurk and his amazing flying prowess.

                    It was a tough choice for me but in the end I pick Golurk due to it's type combo, and useful movepool.

                      Tough one for me too but I'm going with Cohagrigus since it was a bro to me when facing the E4 in White and saved my bacon when going up against Marshal which would have been one hell of a challenge for my team at the time otherwise.

                      I'm not a large fan of either of them but I voted for Golurk. Golurk got my vote because the fact that it can learn Fly is interesting, because Cohagrigus annoyed me a lot in the Battle Subway with Trick Room and because it has awesome shiny colours (although Cohagrigus's are nice too).

                        I voted Golurk since as people have mentioned, it can fly and there is an upcoming event for a shiny one if you have White (which I do! :D)

                        Also, Ghost/Ground is a typing combo which I find unique

                          Golurk. I EV trained one and really loved it. I love everything about the pokemon except the name Golurk. Still, Love it.

                          There is a place for Cofhagirus, but betwwen the two, I prefer Golurk.

                            I never liked both, but after a second run through in Black, I caught Golett, evolved it and now I'm really digging Golurk, especially its ability to fly! It can really dish out hits and learns a variety of useful moves that suit the Pokemon such as Heavy Slam, it weighs 330Kg!

                              Cohagrigus, it intrigues me a lot. It's a little strange, and not very strong, but I don't know, there's something in it that appeals to me. Maybe its mysterious side ?
                              On the other hand I never payed attention to Golurk.

                              I'm really not a fan of either D: I've always detested Cohagrigus because tbh I think it looks terrible. :x The concept and design are both really bad imo and its battle style is pretty dull. Golurk is a completely different story though. I used to adore Golurk when it first came out; it's Ground/Ghost dual-typing seemed sooo cool. I was so excited to use one, but then when I finally did it was the biggest disappointment imaginable :c But I'm gonna go with Golurk just 'cos it can Fly. :3

                              This is a really hard decision, to be honest. They're both equally liked by me. Golurk is adorable, and who wouldn't like a ghost sarcophagus? HMM.

                              Not my favorite Unova Ghost Pokemon, but I do like both almost equally. Cohagrigus is a mummy coffin thing with reminds me of ancient egypt, so I'll go with that.

                              I like Golurk because I'm not a big fan of Soul Eater. :( Sorrrry Alternative

                              It's just something about Cohagrigus that is...wrong. I mean, I like Yamask (because cute) but Cohagrigus just seems a tiny bit weird.

                              :(((((
