    It's been a while since I last posted a poll in The Contest Hall, but since no one here does a comparison between Torchic and Swablu, I will do one for the random sake.

    Torchic and Swablu. The two bird-based Pokémon introduced in Gen 3, have differently adorable appearances, and their evolution are quite powerful in their own right, but which would you pick, based on appearances and cuteness? (Or maybe battling prowess if you want to add.)

    Swablu, since I like Altaria, especially its Mega. Blaziken, on the other hand, is one of my least favourite Hoenn Pokemon, even when Mega Evolved, it doesn't appeal to me at all.

    Only picked Swablu since I do love Altaria's design and Mega looks cute as well
    really love the coloring, one of the few 3rd gen Pokemon I love

    hate the starter, its my worst Pokemon of all, so really easy decision, not sure what bothers me about Torchic's design that I just can't stand, opposite of 'cute' for me, at least for me, its evolutions look worst (currently Blaziken stands as my least favorite of all Pokemon (rock bottom of my list)

    I like Swablu a lot and it's one of my favourite Flying Types. Torchic is kinda cute too and so is Combusken but I don't like Blaziken (both Normal and Mega) in terms of design.

    Torchic if you care about competitive battling with Blaziken's Mega Evolution, Swablu if you like cute things and if you don't mind using a Mega Stone on it for competitive.
