    Emboar
    Reshiram
    Victini
    Ho-Oh
    Magmortar

    I'll be choosing Oshawott.

    If the third game comes out I'll probably pick Snivy for it...

    It was probably mostly due to Samurott that his popularity grew so much.....but I like to think Oshawott has also grown on people by it's own merit.

    Oshawott. I love the Water starters (except Piplup) and I love the Fire starters. I only choose grass if it's Turtwig (and I like Bulbasaur, but I prefer Squirtle or Charmander).

    Anyways, I'll choose Oshawott for my main run in Black, then I'll choose Snivy for White. I was originally gonna get Tepig for White, but then I realized that the eventual 3rd version would probably feature the Ice/Dragon so Tepig would be good for that game. x)

    Yea, I remember Tepig being my favorite of the 3, but then Oshawott grew on me because it just did. And I also love his whole "Samurai theme" going on.

    Snivy reminded me of Treecko, who is really cool but I was never fond of because I liked Swampert and Blaziken more.

    And again, Tepig used to be my favorite that was announced, but I was slightly discouraged when finding out that he was another dual type Fire/Fighting and when finding out that he was a slow fire/fighting type. I'm kind of tired of the repeated trend with fire starters. Three in a row seems a bit much.

    But like I said in my previous post, I'll use Tepig in the eventual 3rd game cuz of the ice dragon pokemon who is sure to be the main legendary, and because I like Tepig over Snivy.

    It was sort of funny for me because when the starter silhouettes were first revealed (so we didn't really know what they looked like except for shape), my ranking of the starters was:

    1. Snivy
    2. Oshawott
    3. Tepig

    Then when what the starters actually looked were revealed it changed to:

    1. Oshawott
    2. Tepig
    3. Snivy

    and then after first learning their evolutions:

    1. Snivy
    2. Oshawott
    3. Tepig

    However Samurott grew on me a lot...it was mostly due to the shocking difference that made me uneasy about him....but I really like him now so it's strongly this:

    1. Oshawott
    2. Snivy
    3. Tepig

    I don't remember my preference of starters ever jumping around so much as with this gen. :S

    I don't think he meant that seriously. Anyways I have to go with Osha...Sni...TEPIG!!!!! Yeah I said it Tepig, Tepig was really popular until the whole fire/fighting thing why is why a lot of people aren't choosing. Seriously Emboar looks amazing and has a great movepool.

    I bet another reason that Oshawott has become more popular is because he is absolutely amazing in the anime. I think people thought he'd be too much like Piplup....but he's different. I love how he'll get all buzzed up for a battle...then see this big creature looming over him and push Pikachu out on to the field. Anime Oshawott has a great personality.

    I bet it was also because Oshawott in the anime was shown to be quite a happy pokemon, whereas when they were first revealed everyone thought Oshawott was depressed.

    I love a good challenge, so I'm going with the grass type Snivy. Grass types just appeal to me, I don't know why. But in my other game I'm probably going with Oshawott. Sorry, Tepig, but you're really not a starter I'd ever choose.

    I'm going with Tepig. While I actually had to decide between all three starters (it's normally a clear decision), I was drawn to Emboar's design the most. Also, I can nickname him Ganonpork, and that's a huge plus in my book.

    Oshawott,I have always picked fire starters in all the game sI have played but Tepig and its evolutions look horrible,Oshawott on the other hand looks cool and for some reason he reminds me of the epicness of squirtle.

    I shall pick Snivy. I think it is the best starter. He may not have the best movepool but I can overcome that easy. Plus his final form is awesome. Plus it is fast and has pretty decent defenses. Also I may soft reset for a shiny one because they are amazing looking.

    I always go with the grass starter. Only rarely have I gone with something else. So Snivy it is.

    Tepig!

    Because I love it's design. And Emboar's design. I like all the starters this time around but the little piggy pretty much had me sold since the beginning and nothing has been able to defer me, not even the awkward stat spread (why no defense emboar? :C)

    Snivy. Higher speed... and I want to test out the combo I have in mind for Serperior (juggling with Dragon Tail/Wring Out)

    I can't believe Vine Whip only has 15 uses. It used to be 10... how is 15 better?!

    It's a mix between these two.

    I think it looks awesome too... I'm just turned off by the fact that it hardly gets any Fighting type moves. I mean, sure, it does get them, but they're not in the most "easiest" way to obtain.

    I'm gonna make an all fire team:

    Emboar
    Reshiram
    Victini
    Ho-Oh
    Magmortar
    Typhlosion
    The lack of Chandelure disturbs me. To each their own I guess.


    As for me, I choosing Snivy, as I have an affinity towards the more reptilian group (only exception being with Cyndaquil). That, and despite it's supposedly "limited" movepool, it's mainly a grass type with draconic aspects, and it can use those well enough. And I'm most likely going to be using Serperior in White.

    If I do eventually get Black (which I plan on doing this summer), I'll likely be picking Oshawott, since it too has grown on me, and Samurott just looks awesome. Not sure about it's moveset, but hey, I'm not all that worried.

    Oshawott all the way baby! I just have a soft spot for little Oshawott, so I'm going to be choosing it as my Starter Pokemon in Pokemon Black. I was planning on using something else, but I figure that Oshawott will ultimately be the better choice. I used to think that Oshawott was otterly ridiculous, but after seeing it in action in the anime, I know that it's a great Pokemon to have around.

    I'm happy for Oshawott. I remember the age where everyone, and I mean everyone, hated "Wotter." Look at him now.

    take a guess as to who my starter was and will be agaiin in english....Like a poster above me, daikenki reminds me of when i first saw blastoise and told myself i must have him. He is like the antithesis of blastoise. mammal/reptile, warm/cold blooded, dual canons of epicness/dual swords of epicness, clean shaved look/ manly bearded look....etc.

    I'll be choosing Oshawott during my first playthrough in Black. I love his design, and his final evo is just amazing. I'll have to think up a good nickname for mine. I very rarely choose the water starter, but I love this guy, so he'll be journeying with me through Unova.

    Then, when I start over I'll go with Tepig, then Snivy. (I always end up using each starter at one point).
