Dragonite vs Boomanda. Both are quite similar as in both are dragon/flying and both have good offensive stats with emphasis on attack.

Dragonite's Base Stats:
HP: 91
ATTACK: 134
DEFENSE: 95
SPECIAL ATTACK: 100
SPECIAL DEFENSE: 100
SPEED: 80

Boomanda's Base Stats:
HP: 95
ATTACK: 135
DEFENSE: 80
SPECIAL ATTACK: 110
SPECIAL DEFENSE: 80
SPEED: 100

Comparing stats alone, they appear to be nearly tied. Boomanda has slightly better offense and Dragonite has better defenses, though offense is slightly more important, so this goes to Boomanda.

Move Compatibility:

Both have good move compatibilities. Boomanda learns Crunch, Scary Face, Double-Edge, Dragon Claw, and through TM's can get Earthquake and Fire Blast/Flamethrower. Dragonite may not learn Crunch and some other moves, but gets Thunder Wave, the electric TM's, and the ice tm's.

I'd say Dragonite wins the move compatibility category. Boomanda's is good, Dragonite's is just better.

Characteristics:

Dragonite's Mind Power makes it so that it cannot miss.

Boomanda's Menace lowers enemy attack ratings.

Dragonite's trait definitely wins out here, as most people will be assaulting Boomanda with ice attacks anyway, while Dragonite can make up for his lack of STAB by arming itself with moves like Blizzard and Fire Blast.

The Winner (?): Dragonite

(Obviously, this is all speculation)

It depends on what you use them for. Dragonite is for last-longer, status-dependent battles. Boomanda is a hit-and-run type pokemon. Made for quick strong hits, and it goes down. Dragonite on the other hand, has much better defenses and less speed. It's made to last long and wear down the opponent.Of course, with that characteristic, you'll see more Zap Cannon and such on Dragonite, making him much better than normal. The outcome: Equal, leaning towards Dragonite.

There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs, huge erections, and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

Zap Cannon is an old TM now, right? [Smile]
As Dynamic Punch and Horn Drill. So, I think bets go to Blizzard and Thunder.

Haven't you seen in another topic that Mind Power doesn't actually provide never-miss moves, but ensures that its bearer never flinches?

Oh wait, that post showed up after the last post...
