Arcanine. He just looks more graceful and gorgeous to me.

That and he doesn't faint with one fighting move. Sorry Houndoom.

Eh. I don't really like either, but if I was forced to pick one I'd choose Arcanine.

Tough question!

I think I'd go with Houndoom though. Its Pokemon Stadium 2 animations were really cool! Whereas Arcanine was just standing in front of an invisible fan or something.

Houndoom.

Every generation they give new toys to Arcanine and it still gets pushed to BL because somehow it's not that useful.

Houndoom.

For what Cerberus said, plus the added Dark-type. Anything that's Dark (excluding Spiritomb) is instant win with me.

Hmm, looks like Doom is tied now with Arcanine.

Hmm, I chose Houndoom, because he is a HELLHOUND!!! a hound that comes from the underworld. how awesome is that?

As much as I respect both of them design wise, I feel arcanine is better, partially due to stats, and because it can hit with Close Combat and still recover w/Morning sun.

Arcanine is cool, but in the end, I think I'm gonna have to go with Doomlover. He's just so much better in bed.

Arcanine was originally a legendary. Houndoom, your argument is invalid.

Arcanine might have lower Special Attack, but also has more decent defense. And the big fluffy mane and tail actually makes him majestic.

(But Ninetales is still better.)

I still use Arcanine sometimes in dragon-themed teams. He used to learn Dragon Rage in RBY and was used by Lance in Stadium games.

Houndoom all the way. It's got a unique type combination and looks cooler.

^This. But if I had to choose between the two I'd say Houndoom.

Design-wise Arcanine, but Houndoom's been my favorite for eons, so it ultimately wins here. Sorry logic, nostalgia wins. :D

Arcanine! I could hug it forever.

I, uh, I mean, it's fire. Yeah, fire. Fire. Whoo!

Arcanine is both cuddly and ferocious. Houndoom looks dishevelled and sick and it has stupid horns.
