I've picked Charizard, Blastoise, Blaziken, and Torterra for previous generations. I picked Typhlosion for the second generation because it was the only one I thought was decent. I was going to pick Snivy, but now I'm picking Tepig. What are you guys picking?

I definitely wouldn't pick the water starter for this generation. Ugh. Probably the fire pig, seeing as I always choose fire (excluding Chimchar) and, well, it's a fire pig - why wouldn't I want it?
I always pick the water starter. But this is the first time that its doesn't seem exciting. But if they make a good final evolution its won't matter how bad the starter seems.
Here's some footage from today's Pokemon Sunday about the starters, which ends with some battle footage between them:
i pick the fire starters all the time and i know the name's of the starter pokemon too hard to say
Spiral Knights <.<...
i would probably have to go with the grass. the other two look cool and all but something about that grass pokemon is really interesting....
I like the grass one but the sea otter (water) looks kinda weird and so does the fire pig.... meh ill go with the grass (is it tsutaja or somethimg like that?)
I am starting to loose the definition of ''cool'' in Pokémon. For one reason is the pokemon are getting more cute and big prided. Piplup was tolerable but these are getting ridiculous.
For one thing:
Another gecko type pokémon...
Even still. I dislike the others even more. So i guess i will go with this thing.

* SCV is now known as Fearow
* ~Fearow chases Caterpie
* Fearow is now known as SCV
TBH, I don't really care too much about the first forms, it's the final evolutions I'm interested in. Flaming Boar, anyone?
I'm new to the forum, and I usually don't do this kinda of thing, but I just had to say something when I found out about the new starters.
All I can really say is........ Sadness.
When I saw the silhouettes of the new pokemon I was really excited! But this is just a huge disappointment.
I like the grass the best but, didn't we already have a reptile grass starter?
And I'm sorry to those who like it but the water starter looks completely fake. Is it just me or does it look like a giant snowcone?
The fire starter is... cute... but just like the rest of them I really hope their final evolutions are more impressive.

As for me, I love the new starters the best. I personally love the water starter the most, its so cool and cute. Did they reveal the names of the new starters yet?
Seriously though I was referring to Chikorita(fav!)>3
Now I don't necessarily mean to say that there is anything wrong with the new starters, I guess I just hyped up their
possibilities to the point where they could never live up to my expectation. I think the water starter is cute however it's
appearance just seems a little strange compared to past pokemon. But that's just me!
Like Riolu likes the water starter, I don't particularly care for it, but the game won't even come out till next year so maybe I'll change my mind by then ;D
They all look rather stupid, in my opinion. In past generations, I could look at the first stages of the starters and know which one of them I'd want to go with. This time, none of them look like I'd want to even touch them. I guess I'll just have to see their final evolutions and make my decision based on that. For my prediction, though, I'd probably go with the fire pig... assuming it fully evolves into a huge, badass-looking flame boar! Yeah, I'll have one on my team, regardless of whether it sucks or not in battle and nickname it "Ganondorf". XD
This makes me wonder what their evolution forms look like. Depending what they are I may decide between that Grass Snake or Fire Pig.
If I get the Fire Pig Pokemon I will name him Bacon or BabyBack.
I also agree with how the Pokemon are starting to look ridiculous.
