Hasn't every gen had two sets of starters.

Almost every Pokemon game I can remember has had a second set of starters in it. Why is this being hyped in xy?

Because you get them so early.

Man, let's see. There's HGSS and Emerald and.... anything else? I don't think so.

Because you get both before the E4 AKA At the beginning of the game rather than one before you beat it and one after

Because this time it's given to you during the story, and you don't have to complete some major task to get it.

So you've only played HGSS then and no other game?

I guess Emerald counts too but eh.

What do you mean?

In some games in Gen 3 and 4 we could start picking a new starter in the post-game and in B/W there was the monkey trio, but in this case you literally get a second starter of your choice after the first gym/in the first half of the main game.
