Why are you guys using old Pokemon?

Before post-game i mean.This is a new generation and there are a ton of new pokemon that haven't even been announced. I don't see why anyone would use the kanto starters till after they've beaten the game with kalos pokemon. I especially don't understand people hoping to catch old pokemon in the wild and use them on their team. Don't you want to experience the new region and the new pokemon it has to offer? Just asking.

Because we like old Pokemon.

If I see a Pokemon I like in the wild, I'll catch it, Kalos or not. Hell, I might have a full team of non-Kalos pokemon and Froakie come endgame.

I might use Bulbasaur if Orotto doesn't live up to my expectations, and I might use Chandelure if there are no good fire types on offer.

The only Kalos Pokemon that have grabbed me so far are Froakie and Tyrunt.

Because in most cases,

old pokemon > new pokemon.

I was going to do a Chespin and torchic run but now that pyroar exist I have changed my mind.


So far that's my team based off the info we have. Can't wait to see all the other Pokemon.

Nuzlocking --> I use whatever I come across first. On a blind Nuzlocke I'm not going to turn down the chance of a free Charizard.
