So, here's the deal. I'm aware this isn't the White board. It's the wrong colour, and I'm not even talking about White 2 I'm just talking about regular White. But this board is way more active, and I'm looking for quite votes. Afterwards, you can let this topic die like it deserves. Just help me out real quick.

I haven't played a Pokemon game since the original Gold. Before reading on, I'm seriously not trying to troll or start anything here. This is just how I feel. I don't hate new Pokemon, I'm not stuck in nostalgia, and I think many of them are cool.

But I can't pick now because I hate something about each of these starters. Here's my problem. Back when I played (again, Gold and before), I always went with water. Out of the three starting elements, water is my favourite and they've usually looked awesome imho. Occasionally I'd pick the grass one because it was a close second. I really, really don't like fire Pokemon usually. Don't ask me why, I don't have to explain my arbitrary preferences to you. I just don't.

So now I want to pick water to be loyal to my favourites, but I really hate just about everything about Oshawott's looks. I hate his first form, his second form, and his third form. They all look terrible imho, I just hate them. EDIT: I was re-looking at them and I actually quite like Oshawott's second, I guess. Definitely not his first, and I HATE his third. Seriously, I don't like it at all. I think he looks coolest in his second form. The vote is still on though.

So we come to grass. I actually quite like Snivy's look. I'd have no problem choosing him... if I didn't think he grows more, and more stupid looking per evolution. I can't stand how he looks when he changes. I suppose I could deny his evolution but I usually like evolving my Pokemon.

So then Tepig? Here's the kicker, out of the three I actually like his three forms the best. I think they all look alright. The second form is probably my favourite, but his last form still looks fine. But I hate fire! To me it's be sooo outlandish to start with a fire Pokemon!

So, now that you've read my vain rant, it's up to you guys. I don't care WHY you pick you to pick. It can be any reason whatsoever and you don't even have to explain why you picked it. I'll choose whatever Pokemon has the most votes in like 30 minutes or so. I wanna get started with the game, after all.

Thanks, and cheers.

He's talking about white, not white 2. I would go with Tepig because they aren't many good fire types you can get until post game. Also if you want a good water type go for either Swanna or seismitoad.

And tepig once evolved has an advantage over 3 of the 8 gyms.

Only 19 votes? I'll give it another 30 minutes or so. But then I'm starting the game.

Ding ding. Oshawott it is. Thanks guys.

EDIT: In case anyone is curious, at 6:00 pm EST when I said I'd pick whoever was winning, it was 9, 8, 10 respectively. So if Oshawott isn't winning later, too bad you guys missed your change to pick my starter. xD Thanks again
