Is it possible that there will be more than 3 starter choices?

According to the official website, all four characters besides you also get a Pokemon and Pokedex.

Probably not. If that were the case, there'd need to be a four way dynamic instead of the current three way dynamic we have going on.

I do wonder what the other characters will end up with.

The Platypus, the reason games like spore exist.

More than likely just Serena or Calem will have one of the starters, and likely the one that is strong against the one you pick. The others will probably have pokemon suited to their personalities instead of just one of the starters.

The fat kid who I assume is somehow related to the professor (they all look at him when asking if they can get their starters) will have vaniltie probably.

Trevor will get a start poke
The other PC will get a starter

Shauna will get gothielle or mincinno I bet.

85%chance.

I doubt it, since I'm about 97.8% positive that they'll give them all new Gen VI Pokemon :)

We've already seen the starter selection screen. If there were more than three choices, I'd think we'd know by now.

I think close, but the fat kid gets an eevee that evolves into sylveon, and he gives to you, so "somebody gives you his starter" rumor is true.

No, it's been confirmed we only get to choose between the fire, water and grass starters.

My prediction is that Serena/Calem's pokemon will be the one strong against yours, and the other three will be locked to recieve a specific pokemon: Shauna = Chespin, Tierno = Froakie, Trevor = Fennekin. That's just my theory, of course. It's possible that all of them depend on who the player chooses, but there's no telling until we get into the game.

The e3 video says "game footage not final."

If I had to guess though, the other two starters could be Eevee and Pikachu.
