This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So with two starters available, who will you be taking?

Just curious what the people of this board are thinking about this new addition to the game.

Ever since the original Red version, I've taken the Fire-starter. My intention was to continue that trend with Pokemon X/Y but when I learned that I'd be allowed to get one of the original three starters, I started to question myself.

Charmander is my absolute favorite starter because Charizard is my absolute favorite pokemon.

This is also only further compounded by the possibility of getting a Torchic with the special event, which is another of my favorite fire-starter pokemon.

I was actually toying with the idea of just taking all three fire-starter pokemon, but am torn because I know I wouldn't use them for the entire game.

What are your plans?

Fennekin and Bulbasaur, but I won't be using Bulbasaur. I only want to use gen 6 Pokemon.

With Torchic being given away, I am foregoing the fire type starters on both versions.

Can't decide between Froakie or Fennekin. Taking Squirtle since Charizard is overrated and terrible competitively.

It really depends on the final evos of the Kalos starters. As it stands either:

Froakie, Charmander

or

Chespin, Blastoise, Torchic

Chespin
Squirtle
Torchic

Ditto, at least for my very first playthrough of the game, I want to just have Gen 6 Pokemon.

Fennekin and Squirtle. Squirtle was my first starter and one of my favorite pokemon growing up, and I tend to favor magic users.
