Ok well Nidoqueen is a lot more Bulky so if you are wanting a nice wall then go for Nidoqueen. But Nidoking is the sweeper. His attack stats are a lot higher than Nidoqueens so use him as a sweeper.

Hope this helps you come to a conclusion on who to use in your team.

That's EXACTLY what I said
Yeah but Scizornician may have been typing at the same time you were. You both get an upvote from me either way.
Chill. Lost Warrior. I can't see if they are any answers when i am typing.

If you want a better sweeper, go with Nidoking. If you want a better wall, go with Nidoqueen. Nidoking has better attack, special attack and speed while Nidoqueen has better defense, special defense, and health.

SP. ATK ......85 (157 - 295)
SP. DEF ......75 (139 - 273)
SPEED ......85 (157 - 295)
TOTAL 495

Lol. Don't you mean "If you want a better wall go with NIDOQUEEN"?

There is little difference between the two Pokemon. Nidoqueen is the female while Nidoking is the male. So it's a preference as to which gender you prefer.

However they learn different moves in their final evolution stage. If those moves are the ones you're going to use, my suggestion is Nidoqueen. But that's only because I prefer the moves she learns.

THere is also a difference in roles. Nidoking is a better offensively, while Nidoqueen is better defensively.

They are different. They have either massive attack / Special Attack (Nidoking) or massive defense or Special Defense. (Nidoqueen).
Me voting this right back up again :)

It depends what you want; they both have the same base stats, but Nidoqueen has higher HP + defences with lower attacks + slower speed, and Nidoking has higher attacks and speed, but lower HP and defences. There's also a difference in their movesets; Nidoqueen's final move is Superpower, while Nidoking's final move is Megahorn.

Personally, I find the difference to be minuscule, but go with Nidoqueen with you want higher defences, or Nidoking if you want higher attack. Also, move wise, Megahorn is best, because it will provide coverage against Psychic weakness.

There is actually not a whole lot apart. (In looks.)

Nidoking: Offence.
Nidoqueen: Defence.


enter image description here

Nidoqueen is a great wall to tank hit out ingame. And when I first played through Fire Red, Nidoqueen was one of my team members. It comes extremely useful against the Elite 4 and with the movepool of learning a move of almost every type, it has great coverage ingame.


enter image description here

Nidoking is offence. He is a great sweeper ingame and as a fact learns a move of every type. His Special Attack is great, not to mention his Attack, so he can become a great Mixed Sweeper. Nidoking is an awesome way to sweep the game up.


Nidoking Page.
Nidoqueen page.

By the way, over the stats, they both have 495 base total, meaning there is not much to compare between the stats. Nidoking has better offence, while Nidoqueen has better defence. They have different roles to play.
