...and which one did you end up picking? And what kind of situation are you expecting to happen this time?
For me, Oshawott was the least appealing and thought I'd pick Tepig or Snivy for sure. Their evolutions turned out to be dissapointing (mostly Tepig's) and I went with Oshawott in the end who I really started to like after a while.
This time, it's exactly the same. I'm expecting Fennekin or Chespin and not even considering Froakie. I wonder what I'll be thinking in a few months when we know the evolution lines.
Currently playing: Tales of Graces F, League of Legends, Dota 2, Sleeping Dogs. Waiting for: Ni no Kuni, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Until Gen V I always picked the fire starter, typically because it always seemed to take forever to find good fire pokes going through the scenario. That and they're usually my favorite of the three. However with Gen V I also went with Oshawott, he was too cute to pass up. I also played with Tepig for awhile and was just disappointed, Though I will also say Gen V is the first gen where I didn't take my starter all the way to the end of the game for the scenario, which saddened me a little.
This game right now makes it look like I'll be going fire again :D However, as you said, going to wait to see what the typings are and how they look. To be honest I like all three starters for this coming game so for me it could be either one. But if Fennekin becomes Fire/Psychic in its final form, there is no debate, it will be mine.
I immediately latched on to Tepig when he was revealed. He was just too happy and his final forms' ties to Chinese mythology were too appealing. I didn't even care he was fire/fighting. My decision to choose him never wavered.
I expect the same to go with Froakie, but anything could happen still.
