Did You Choose Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan?

I chose Hitmonlee because I love his kick moves and he looks awesome. I also like that his name came from Bruce Lee which made him more awesome, but the real reason I chose him is because he is my favorite fighting type and he is a great choice to have on your team. So who did you choose? And why do you like one better than the other?
When I first played through Blue version, I went with Hitmonchan because I just liked his design better. Funnily enough, another reason for choosing him was because of "-chan." As a kid, I was a big fan of Jackie Chan, so I thought Hitmonchan was awesome because of that. Now, however, I choose Hitmonlee, because he's just a better choice, in my opinion.

I have always chose Hitmonchan because I prefer punching moves than kicking moves. Another reason that I chose Hitmonchan was because he was based on Jackie Chan. That, and because he has better defense than Hitmonlee.

I always picked Hitmonchan not only because he is named after Jackie Chan but because he looks cooler than Hitmonlee (you really want to be hanging around with a walking brown thingie?) and that he can learn Thunder, Fire, and Ice Punch. But I never used him so I guess it doesn't matter as much. :D

I choose Hitmonlee, because it has a stronger Attack, and more powerful moves. Hitmonchan mostly has elemental punches that are useless due to its low Special, and nothing unique in the way of physical attacks.

Besides, I think Machamp is better than either one of them.

That's the right way to think about it!

Hitmonlee because of the higher offensive stats, though I never used/use him. I go through the Fighting Dojo just to level up before the Saffron Gym, so whichever Hitmon' I choose just ends up rotting in my box between Ch'Ding the Farfetch'd and that Lapras you get from the whiney guy in Silph Co.
