Okay here we are... This time I'm putting the two strongest non-legendary Fire types... Growlith and Arcanine are notable for being the strongest pokemon that has evolved once with a BST of 555. Ulgamoth is the second strongest of that group with a BST of 550

They are both considered 'legendary' Arcanine's title is literally the Legendary Pokemon. Ulgamoth has his own dungeon post-game...

You get the deal

Who looks better/Who'll win/Which is more useful

Arcanine for all for me (Type advantage mostly...)

Edit: Meraruba and Ulgamoth's English names have been semi-confirmed IGN here's the link http://pokejungle.net/2011/01/13/list-of-english-bw-names/ They're names are Larvesta and Volcarona

Growlithe. Better design, less of a weakness to Stealth Rock.

Re: Growlith line VS Meraruba line

Ulgamoth line. Unique Type Combination. Who cares about Stealth Rock weakness? It's a broken Move anyway. It's way better than your crappy Bug/Flying as well. And those Stats... plus Butterfly Dance and Morning Sun. Much better distribution than Arcanine's too, that's for sure. Might have a shallow-ish Movepool, but Arcanine's ain't stellar, either. Design-wise, Ulgamoth wins as well. It's truly an impressive-looking Pokémon. Not that Arcanine is bad, but I'd believe Ulgamoth to be Legendary before Arcanine, if I didn't know already.

So yeah, Ulgamoth by a long shot.

Re: Growlith line VS Meraruba line

Before today, I would have voted Arcanine.

But I just learned that Ulgamoth's English name is Volcarona...

which is completely BA, so I now like the Volcarona line better!

Re: Growlith line VS Meraruba line

never got the hype about Arcanine anyway, but Ulgamoth rules. It took down half of the Elite Four on its own in my first playthrough of jp. Black.

Really?

Well, Ulgamoth does have a badass signature move, and also the fact that it can Butterfly Dance is awesome. Medium Fire Dog vs. Giant Flaming Moth of Death. The answer is clear.

that is only because the game trainer doesn't use Stealth Rock.

Arcanine Intimidate+Extreme FTW

Re: Growlith line VS Meraruba line

Arcanine. I like its design better, and it doesn't take 75% damage every time it switches in.

Growlithe line, I just think that ulgamoth looks hideous, if I ever saw one I'd most deafenatly kill it, not make it faint.

Growlithe & Arcanine for sure.

They look a lot better than Ulgamoth IMO.

Re: Growlith line VS Meraruba line

I honestly like Ulgamoth. Unique typing and cool design, plus, I was never a big fan of Arcanine, anyway. I find myself using a good deal of Bug types as well.
