I wouldnt say that either is better, they both have their strengths. Hitmonchan can learn things like Fire Punch so if you want a Pokemon that knows Moves outside it's type go with him. Hitmonlee is good too though. If like me you can't decide, try Iny Miny Miney Moe.

That's only in old versions. But I think Hitmonlee is better.

IMO, I would suggest Hitmonchan, due to the fact that it have different elemental punches. Hitmonlee has a cooler look though. But anyways, I have them both... hehehe (I did'nt cheat, I just traded to my own device, like 1 device but 2 running games) and I don't use them because they're crap to those pesky ghost types... It's up to you people... B-)

Hitmonchan is better and if I was you I would have him in my team to try to beat the e4 and chanpion (icy types are weak to fighting types)

Pick either, they're both bad. I've forgotten the cave, but you can get a Tyrogue of a Karate bloke in there. The Tyrogue will evolve into Hitmontop.

Hitmonchan because it can learn a variety of moves (Fire/Ice/Thunder)Punch.
Hitmonlee is also good

Hitmontop because technician stab triple kick has 135 base power and he is more bulky than the other 2

Neither are better than the other. I have the strategy guides and it lists bullets for stats and they are the exact same. Hitmontop on the other hand is a little better than both of them. It would be easier to just breed a tyrouge and try to get him.

Hitmonlee or hitmonchan are good because you could make an egg to get hitmontop ,hitmonlee or hitmonchan only if your luccky though our have items that increase stas permantly

Hitmnlee is way better.

It´s true that hitmonchan can learn a wariety of punches (ice, fire, lightning), but the problem is that he has such low special attack stats that he will do very little damage with any of them. If you want to use fire/ice/electricity attacks you should use pokemons which have high special attack and that pretty much rules out any fighting type pokemn.

Hitmonlee on the other hand has very high attack stats AND uses only physical abillities which mean his attacks will deal far greater damage. He can't be used against as wide a variety of types as hitmonchan but on the other hand he´s actually good at what he´s doing.

Hitmonlee is better because it looks cooler and it has a high attack, hitmonchan has low attak and looks like a girl, hitmontop is strong to but it looks dumb

Breed any
If you have same defense and attack you most likely got a hitmontop but if it's attack is way higher then it's defense then you got a hitmonlee and to get hitmonchan it's attack has to be lower then it's defense.

I know this is a dead thread, but I don't care,

I would go with hitmonlee, hitmonchan is strong with his elemental punches and such, but due to his afwul Sp. Attack they deal little damage even when it is super effective. Hitmonlee has a high attack stat and all his moves are pyshical, so pure damage wise hitmonlee beats hitmonchan straight on. But hitmonchan is a bit tankier than hitmonlee so it depends what role he has to play in your team.
