So its exciting we get 2 starters! But I thought of something, recently in older pokemon games we get the saying, "Oh you started with this type of pokemon? Well let me give you a pokemon that is weak against it!" Like in Black/White, you chose Tepig? You get a Pansage!

I guess what I'm worried about is if you choose Fennekin (like me) We may get a Bulbasaur. I'd be a little upset that our chosen starter will choose the Kanto starter we'd get. Because I want Charizard >_>

Not trying to be a Charizard-Thumper lol

Nope. You get to choose a Kanto Starter. There's no issue.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

In the very direct they announced this, you can see a selection screen where you can pick your starters. Your concern is moot.

they didnt give you the monkey yours was weak to, they gave you the monkey that is strong to what your starter is weak to. which yeah sure ends up being weak to your starter, but that wasnt the point.

that said im half glad you choose your second starter, and have sad. i liked what gen 5 did with giving you a pokemon strong against what yours is weak against. just fun. plus i loved the idea of the monkey trio (even if stat wise it they ended up being a bit disappointing)

I agree sir. I love Simisage the most! I'm not a grass type fan but.. Simisage deserved the name Rafiki XD and that's what I shall have him named every playthrough O.O
