Switching my usual starter type in this game. You?

I could still be persuaded otherwise, but I am likely going to pick Fire despite picking Water first every gen but third (and I regretted that decision so hopefully that won't happen this time).

I've only selected the Grass Starter a couple of times over the course of many years of playing Pokemon. It's not really because I have anything against Grass-type Pokemon, but so far I haven't liked any of the Grass Starter Pokemon more than the Fire and Water ones. It's possible I will like the final form of the Grass Starter more than the other two, but we'll see.

I don't have a usual type, I just pick the one I like the look of most.

That said, the one I like the look of almost always ends up being the Grass type. Bulbasaur, Treecko, Turtwig, and Snivy. The only exception has been Gen2 where I liked Cyndaquil the best.

So I guess in a way I have a usual type, even though I don't pick it because of the type but because of the look.

And in that case I suppose I will be deviating from the usual, since I'll be picking Froakie.

Don't have a usual starter type. I just pick the cutest one that I think will have the nicest evolutions.

That's perfectly fine, and makes a lot of sense. That's actually exactly like me, except I chose Fennekin.

Always pick fire, except gen 5 because Embroar is by far the stupidest looking starter I've ever seen. All other occasions though I find Fire to be the coolest

I chose Other because I don't normally stick with one starter type for the games. I just pick one and go with it.

Always picked water starter for my first playthrough of the new gen except for for Gen III, which ends up my least fun pokemon experience so I'm not planning to do that again.
