Wow that's...something I've not heard before. Though I know someone who won't play this because, even though he says it looks like a great game, if Pikachu isn't a starter option, he won't play. Doesn't matter if Pikachu is before the first badge: he wants it as his starter. He loved playing Mystery Dungeon though (well, once he got Pikachu as his choice).
He said he wants to be like Ash...>_> --- If life gives you lemons, sell 'em to Tom Nook. Black 2 FC: 0132-9980-0476, 3DS FC: 5284-2520-2972 (Pokemon IGN: Aki)
I know someone who didn't want this game at all after mega kangaskhan was revealed. But then just a week ago he bought the game anyways for some reason. --- 3DS FC- 2981-5785-3794 Pokemon white 2 FC-2838-7906-7636
