Are you choosing your Gen 6 starter based off preferred Gen 1 starter?

I know I am. I was completely on the fence on whether I wanted Fennekin or Froakie but after I heard we can get Gen 1 starters I'm definitely getting Froakie because I must have Charmeleon!

No, I'm not planning on using my Gen 1 starter during my first playthrough. I'd rather use new ones.

It actually just worked out that way for me, as I decided on Chespin before knowing we'd get a gen 1 starter and Squirtle is my favorite and good coverage so it just happened to work out that way.

Maaaaaybe. I want Charmander but also Fennekin. But I usually get both versions anyways so in my first playthrough I'll pick Fennekin and then Squirtle (my second choice) and in my next playthrough Froakie (if he continues evolving into awesomeness) and Charmander.

Granted, that is assuming we receive the Kanto starters fairly early on.

I knew I wanted Chespin, so i planned around him and will be picking Squirtle.

I respect that. If this was any generation but 1 (or 2) I'd feel the same. Those have 2 of my favorite fire-types ever.

I always start grass. I'll be picking my gen 1 starter based on the fact that we get Torchic on day 1. So I'm picking squirtle.

brand new gen so i must pick new starters. once i beat the league and open up new areas then i'll start over with a brand new team with older Pokemon. that is if i get the VS Seeker... BW and BW2 didnt so i didnt get to play Typhlosion like previous gens.

Nope. Been Chespin since day one. And honestly I don't really plan to use the kanto starter for my first playthrough.
