Do you think starters are designed based on their first or third stage?

First-stage starters are cute and marketable as mascots and sell a lot of merchandise.

Final stage starters are the real deal.

Do you think most starters are designed around their first, second, or third stage?

I think Blaziken was decided before Torchic. There's that concept art of when Latias and Blaziken used to be the same pokemon.

In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny
And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide.

But there's also concept art of a Torchic with two feathery ears which looks more like the final product of Torchic than the Blaziken/Latias mixup looks like Blaziken.

Definitely the first stage.

I'm not Superman, that's for sure. And I'm not Batman or Spiderman or Aquaman or a wolfman or a merman. I'm not brahman or common or ramen, either.

It could honestly go either way. Do you take the cute mascot and figure out how to turn it into an engine of pain or do you take the awesome headliner and work backwards?

I do not suffer from insanity. I happen to enjoy it very much thank you.

One thing's for sure: they sure as hell don't start with the middle stage.
