Cacturne gives off a more general awesomeness. (that means it has an awesome design). So I choose him. Maractus just doesn't really stand out to me for some reason. I think it might become a very forgettable pokémon.

Maractus, as I have never used Cacturne and used Maractus in my first White run.
I also find it easier to train than Cacnea/Cacturne. Cacturne might be better in competitive battling but I prefer Maractus in the main storyline.

Even though I think it should have an evo/prevo, Maractus is still better.

-It has an epic cry. Cacturne...doesn't.
-Its shiny form looks awesome. Cacturne's is plain boring.
-It's harder to make some derogatory pun out of its name, whereas...Cacturd.

Cacturne is awesome, but Maractus is pretty cute. I also like the latter's Abilities more. Both seem to be pretty good at battling as well. I haven't used Maractus yet, though.

However, I slightly prefer Cacturne's design. Maractus' big flowers look kind of weird, even if cute. Cacturne always looked awesome to me. As I can't go with both, I'll have to pick Cacturne.

Maractus, solely because it reminds me of Kyuubey. lol

Cacturne still looks pretty badass though regardless.

I like both of them, but I choose Cacturne. Maractus has got a very interesting design, but I think it could use an evolution in the future to become more memorable.

I had a Cacturne in Ruby.
I remember using it against Wallace.

I loved it, so I'm picking Cacturne.

Maractus is pretty like a cactus, especially one with pink flowers, should be. Also, how is a dancing maraca cactus not awesome?

Durr.... I was just about to make this....
I like Maractus more because it's better in battle. Design wise, it's surely Cacturne, but I prefer strength over looks, so Maractus wins for me.

I'll choose Cacturne. I barely remember Maractus so...

Cacturne has better stats and moves. Maractus, like everybody else, is forgettable. Cacturne can also be a good lead in NU tiers.

If I had to choose between Maractus and Cacnea, I would probably prefer Cacnea. With Cacturne, it is close win for Maractus.
