Today's entry in my Contest-For-Every-WeekDay-Challenge! is between two Generation II one-stage Normal Type Pokémon, Smeargle and Stantler. Who'd win in terms of...

Looks?

Battling?

All Around Coolness?


Goin' with Smeargle, as it can learn every single move ever.

Smeargle. Sketch is a unique attack and it's also a useful attack.

Smeargle is arguably the greatest Baton Passer ever. Stantler trumps it in terms of design, but that's it.

I felt sorry for Stantler, so I voted for him. That, and I really enjoy Stantler to be honest.

I went with Stantler because although Smeargle has the Sketch attack(which is cool), Stantler just looks better and I like him better.

Stantler's a majestic, brave, and beautiful Pokemon. It's a shame he's such an average Pokemon, too. I always thought he looked neat.

Smeargle. Sketch will do it a lot of good. When you have the largest possible moveset, well... what's not to like?

Smeargle is useful for a variety of reasons, whereas Stantler is just fairly useless all-around.

Smeargle can learn any move through the use of Sketch. So, basically, if it were against Stantler, it would be a tie.

Smeargle, as while it has horrid stats, it makes up for them with its huge movepool. Stantler is pretty ugly and boring.

Stantler for me as well, I quite like his cute and derpy looking design. While I do like Smeargle somewhat, I don't think I've ever used him before compared to Stantler, so another point to him in that at least I've used him on a team for a bit.
