Soo since the new Pokemon is almost coming out around the world, (mostly in the US since it was released in Japan), who are you pickin for your starter? I'm personaly picking a random pokemon, like riolu lv. 5 so i can use it as a starter. Any ideas? OR what's your choice!?

I dunno, I was pretty underwhelmed by oshawott and snivy, and I'm not that keen on tepig. :/

I was planning on using Tepig for Black2 and Snivy for White2. Although, I might opt for another (non-starter) Pokémon instead of Snivy since I've already used one in Black.

I'll probably choose Snivy, but I might get rid of it if I find a better grass type.

Statistically and competitively, BW basically had the worst starters, haha. I love Samurott (or, auf Deutsch, ADMURAI) as a Pokémon, though, so I'll be sticking with Oshawott as per usual.

I'll might use Tepig because I used it in Black, or I might use Snivy because half my friends are obsessed with Oshawott and the other half is obsessed with Tepig. Or I might just not get the game.

I'll be going with Oshawott for White 2, as it's the one unova starter I haven't trained yet. For Black 2, I'm not sure. Maybe trade over a Ralts or something.

I love the oshawott line, but water-types are my favourite and I like not having my starter as water so I can pick something cooler.

In W2 I'm doing a character run, so the eggs are already prepared...though the base starter will b Snivy.
(Pichu, Buneary, Riolu, Larvesta, Torchic, Cyndaquil)

In B2, I 'unno. I'll choose what I want once I get to that point...

Tepig, because I never really used one.

Well, knowing that Black/White had bad starters, im thinking of replacing the starters for a pokemon from the older gens, like crobat(younger zubat raise it), or a dratini and raise it to a dragonite for a starter. Any thoughts?

I am going to power through with an Axew, just like I did in White. Luckily, the one I used in White had an adamant nature, so I can breed much more easily.

Seeing as I had Snivy in Black, I suppose this time I'll get Oshawott.

They aren't really bad. Well, Serperior is (it's probably the worst starter ever!), but Samurott is average and Emboar is powerful apart from having bad speed. The only reason people say Emboar is bad is because it's slower than Blaziken and Infernape, but otherwise it has very good stats and is the bulkiest of the trio.

Actually, I don't think Serperior is that bad. I was probably just lucky, but my Serperior beat Skyla's gym by itself.
