I usually pick the grass types, but now in one of these rare times (I also did this in Gen 2) I will switch to the fire type because Fenniken is adorable and pretty, while Chespin, while adorable too, doesn't look as unique as Fenniken to me. Chespin actually looks pretty weird to me.

My opinion might change though if they ever do decide to show the evolutions, but I prefer they don't since it might ruin the fun in finding out yourself.

I don't have a usual starter type. I just pick the one I like the most.

I knew people like you would say that, so I put the other choice since I couldn't really put it in words as a choice while making sense. You said it in the best way, but it's too late for me.

Yes, although my opinion might change. I usually used Fire, then I slowly slipped to Grass before I started to think that Snivy was useless. This time, I'll most likely choose Froakie.

Voted other just because I don't pick the same type starter for each generation. I usually just go for the one I like the look of most. However, alot of the time the choice is hard for me. I found generations 3 and 4 hard to pick my starter, generation 5 was a litttle easier than them (although I'm not really into any of the gen 5 starters) and generations 1 and 2 were pretty easy as I had definite favourites at the time. Generation 6 is pretty hard to pick a favourite, though. I like all 3 too much to pick a favourite but if I had to, Froakie would more likely be it.

I have been thinking using Chespin as my starter in Pokemon Y but just recently I've been leaning towards Fennekin more now. It's too hard to stick to one choice when I like them almost equally.

Other since I don't really choose my starter based on its type, but I choose by if I like its appearance/evolutions
#9Big_PecksPosted 7/30/2013 1:59:48 PM
I usually go with water, I guess. I'll either go for Froakie, which will be the same as usual, or Fennekin, a type I rarely ever choose.

I usually pick the fastest starter, which tends to be the one I like the most, and is usually the fire type... Exceptions are Treecko and Snivy, but they were still the fastest of the starters... I'll probably be taking either Fennekin or Froakie this time around... Fennekin looks the best, but it seems like Froakie might be the fastest of the 3, and it'll be my first water starter O_O

This is subject to change once I see the final evos, of course...
