P.S Shinn is one awesome character its just too bad they didn't focus more on him in this series it could have been a hell of a lot better but Kira h4x's and cheats so it leaves poor Shinn out of the spotlight damn it!
Well, it's hard to say. I'd like to think both Gundams were pretty much on par; it's just how the pilot is feeling at their particular fights. And Kira is still the best pilot, followed by Asuran which makes Shinn 3rd IMO.
Nah the best Gundam pilots are Kamille Bidan, Char Aznable and Amuro Ray.
In the seed series Kira and Athrun h4x which makes them invincible and I still prefer Shinn because he still has a good story development around him. In all other gundam series its been about one colony getting stuck between the war getting blown apart and thus begins the new gundam's team adventure.
With Shinn his family was horribly killed in his home nation that was suppose to be of a neutral territory he then heads up to space after the captain of the orb fleet found him beside his dead parents and sister(forget his name) and thus began Shinn's story to find a place for him in life.
