But... but Blastoise would likely win in a fight with Charizard because of elemental weaknesses!  Therefore that argument that Charizard is "better" is false!  >__>

Blastoise is better.

Blastoise is blaintly better, and here's why. Just look at the excitement on this kids face when he finds a blastoise inside a pack of pokemon cards.

what a stupid article >.> even if it is a joke.

#12 Posted by bwooduhs (1618 posts) -

Red is better because Charizard is on the box. Charizard is the shit.

Charizard can learn almost any fighting move, almost any flying move, and almost any fire move. Blastoise is only limited to two of them.

Charizard uses Tackle!

Statswise, Charizard has an outstanding Attack, Special Attack, and Speed stat. His Defense and Special Defense are Average. Blastoise has an excellent Defense and Special Defence; his Attack is average, his Special Attack is great, but he is exceptionally slow.

Charizard uses Growl!

Charizard is much much harder to level up than Blastoise.

Blastoise uses Water Gun!

Its Super Effective!

Charizard can defeat the entire Elite Four at Level 80. Blastoise must go much higher, and then even so, he must learn other attacks.

Charizard soars up in the sky!

Charmander and Charmeleon are better than Squirtle and Wartortle.

Charizard uses Fly!

A critical hit!

Blastoise, however, has better stat increasers/reducers.

Blastoise uses Rest!

Charizard is pissed.

Blastoise can Dig; Charizard can fly. Fly takes away more, and is better outside of battle.

Charizard uses Rage!

Blastoise is a much higher standard Water Pokemon than Charizard is a fire Pokemon; however, it is much easier to get water Pokemon in the early parts of the game.

Blastoise woke up!

Blastoise uses Water Gun! The attack missed!

Charizard uses FIRE BLAST!

Its not very effective...

Blastoise and Charizard both have 1HP!

Blastoise has run out of SP for Rest!

Blastoise's Stats as their true Maximum without any drugs like Protein, Calcium, Rare Candy, etc. is:

HP: 362
Attack: 291
Defence: 328 (!)
Special Attack: 295
Special Defence: 339 (!)
Speed: 280
___________________
Total: 1895

Charizards:

HP: 360
Attack: 293
Defence: 280
Special Attack: 348 (OMG)
Special Defence: 295
Speed: 328 (WTF)
_________________
Total: 1904

Charizard uses ULTIMATE RAPE ATTACK!

Blastoise fainted!

You beat Blastoise! $900000 for winning!

Reasons why Pokemon Red is better:


1. It's the version I had.

End of discussion.
#29 Posted by Dethfish (3692 posts) -

I had Pokemon Red so this makes me feel good. Then I got Pokemon Yellow which was pretty awesome too.

On Pokemon Diamond I have Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur and Mewtwo so I don't care which one is better. I'll kick your ass with whatever.

#30 Posted by Absurd (2934 posts) -

Charizard is the best.

#31 Posted by PureRok (4236 posts) -

You know what else makes Pokemon Red better? Kabutops.

#32 Posted by AndrewB (7686 posts) -

I owned both versions. Actually, to be more accurate, I own every version of the Pokemon RPG series to be released to date, including extra japanese copies of Diamond and Pearl, and an extra Emerald and Sapphire from a hotel lost and found.

That makes me the biggest loser.

Actually, I freaking love the Pokemon RPGs, and I stand by the fact that they are pretty awesome, even if you don't like Pokemon overly much.

#33 Edited by Ineedaname (4319 posts) -

But isn't Charizard's weakness fire?

So Blastoise could probably do epic damage with bubble.

@PureRok: Wasn't he in both?
If he's the one I'm thinking of....

#34 Posted by slinky6 (567 posts) -

I think blue is better.   pokemon red reminds me of communism.

#35 Posted by NobodyHereButUsTrees (92 posts) -

There is no better version people. It's just a marketing ploy to get people to buy more pokemans!

They're exactly the same game apart from a couple of insignificant differences.

No dude. I had Kabutops in Blue, and it was much better than the shitty-ass Kabutops in Red.
