The start of a new region is always full of such hype, but after BW I learned to lower my expectation bar as the series will eventually drop back to the usual save the Pokemon of the day, junk. Still with what I've seen I really hope we are going the AG route with the starters and only one character gets a starter. I actually want to see Clemont or Bonnie with a starter now. Maybe they can share it and both control it in battle, I don't know. Please go the AG route with the starters and the group dynamic.
Parena or Serecham both equal Serena+Pancham! Sereevee or Serevee equals Serena+Eevee!
