• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Which do you like better and why? I personally think Xatu. Better stats and can use Psycho Shift to effect. Plus, it has Magic Bounce. Swoobat just looks like a winged pig with a heart nose.


Rev up those fryers
Swoobat is adorable.


Not a tool
I love Xatu's design. Swoobat is way too ugly. Although, Simple+Calm Mind plus its amazing speed could redeem its use.


hey trainer
I like Swoobat's design more, but unless you need a psychic/flying type and you absolutely want it to be Swoobat, Xatu would be the better choice. It's a lot more usable than Swoobat.

But I like Swoobat more, I just wouldn't use it.

I voted Xatu, but honestly I love them both!


Swoobat with Simple/Calm mind is epic, Though Xatu is good as well. I vote Swoobat though.

Swoo-swoo-swoobat! Xatu's design is lame, while swoobat is epic.

I like Xatu better, I love how it is based on an american totem and the colorful quatzal. It is also very mysterious and can see into the future, I find that cool. Competitive wise it isn't that good, but got a huge boost in usefullness with magic bounce in 5th gen and can be quite usefull.

Swoobat, I don't like. Why is it even psychic type? And it is an annoying bat, compare it to the likes of golbat.
I've never used a Swoobat or an Xatu, but I have to go with Swoobat here. It looks cuter to me while Xatu kinda looks like a wind-up bird thingy. Amd I'm more into cute.

Plus Swoobat has an awesome move, heart stamp; yeah!


wat do u want
Xatu is pretty much better with Magic Bounce this gen.
Swoobat is a flying pig? Simple could be usable with Calm Mind.

What about Sigilyph? It's a Psychic Flying Dual Type as well. It looks like a Totem Pole and has Magic Guard. Psycho Shift and Flame Orb is useful with Magic Guard. It also gets Cosmic Power and Calm Mind.
