Altaria, because it has a better design and every time I played RSE, I would replace Swellow with the newly-caught Swablu.

Hmm...Kawaii Cloud Bird, Generic Flying Starter Bird, Or Derpican? Altaria by far.

Who is more useful?

Swellow's alright, but guts isn't terribly useful in-game. Pelipper's outclassed by things that don't fry easily (and Gyara if you want to go that far) Whereas here he have a Dragon-type that isn't a total pain to level up in-game due to its low level once caught. Sides, it learns some great support moves.

Who would you have on your team?

Altaria, due to above.

Who is the cutest?

Altaria

Who is the coolest?

Swellow just glares at everything before slicing their vital organs open.


So yeah, Altaria beats them all easily.

I like the three of them, but Pelican manages to be amazing in his derpy own way. While Altaria relies on fluffiness and elegance and Swellow on coolness, Pelipper manages to be derpy cutesy. <3 Besides, despite his huge electric weakness and not so great stats, he can be a pretty nice team member and his typing is very useful for the first two Hoenn gyms, not to mention he is also fine for the rest.

This basically answers it for me. Derpy pelican is far too derpy and nowhere near as useful imo. D:

Swellow. Nothing on Altaria, but Swellow's just too cool. And it makes for a great revenge killer.

Why the fuck did I vote Swellow?
He is a major bro on my Nuzlocke run, so if that's not reason to vote for him over derpican and the unrealistically cute cloud bird(there is no fucking way that is a dragon), then I don'tknow what is.

Altaria. It looks funny, and is rather strong. Pelipper's eye makes it look drunk.

Overall, Altaria is probably at least somewhat more useful, but I pick Swellow because it's got a really cool design.

Who is more useful? I got more use of Peliper than the others But in general, looking at it, Altaria is probly the most useful.

I chose Altaria, for its looks and overall usability. I have used one and it works wonders in any team arrangement. Plus, it's part Dragon-type, which also makes it a bit more badass than the other two.

Never underestimate the cloud bird, I learned. XD

One of my favorite Pokemon ever. Pretty strong if you know how to use her, too. I love the design, a huge step above the "generic bird" mold.
