Plan on using Kanto Starters?

Do you plan on using the Kanto starters on your first run through?

Personally, I already have all the starters to date, and have extensive hands on time with them all. I'm going to focus on Kalos pokemon, at least for the first run.

No, I actually think it takes away from the game if you do...make it all very, very easy. I will probably use froakie, although when I played Black and White the first time I didn't use any starters.

I'm pretty sure the Kanto Starters will be Post-game only.

Iīll use Charmander. Mega Charizard actually improved my opinion of Charizard, and I want to metaphorically "patch things up" with the big guy.

Nope, like all previous pokemon games I use new pokemons to run through story mode (this is one of the main reasons why i liked b/w1 so much)

Not really.

I plan on starting with Fennekin, so if this game is like the others where fire types are reserved to mid-late game I'm set and won't need Charmander. And Water/Grass pokemon are always so abundant I'll want to use new ones instead of classics.

It probably takes rocks and GA GONGs people with them!
#9JakeisaLiePosted 9/22/2013 10:06:52 AM
I'll probably use Squirtle since it is one of my favorite starters and it's been forever since I've used it

No. I'm only going to use gen 6 Pokemon in my first playthrough. Maybe I'll use older Pokemon after that.
