    If by 'broke' you mean 'horribly stale' then yes, it does need fixing Although you're right, I don't see them changing it now.

    What I'd really love to see implemented is a way to switch between a pokemon's regular ability and DW ability. It is hugely unlikely to happen, but it'd be awesome.

    I'm sorry to do this, but I won't be posting in the Serebii Discussion Forums anymore. My account here will remain open for trading/chatting with friends, but please be patient for a reply as my visits here will be fewer.

    I've left for the greener pastures of Bulbagarden Forums, where free speech is still allowed and the rules are followed by all, including those who enforce them.

    Personally removing Overgrow, Torrent and Blaze is like removing Hydro Cannon, Blast Burn and Frenzy Plant. These things are unique and I think it won't be appreciate if they are removed.

    I've seen many people moan about these abilities on the frailer starters, so I think it'd at least be nice for an alternate ability and the original.

    Possibly GF could make it so that the starters have a rare chance at receiving their hidden abilities when you choose them, something like 5-10% maybe. Cause GF would never just allow people to choose which ability you wanted for your starter. Not to mention the normal abilities are a typical thing for starters and have been ever since abilities were introduced, lot's of people would probably get mad if they changed it or removed them.

    I do however like the idea of catching the starters in the wild, even though they are starter pokemon they come from somewhere. However they shouldn't be a common sight to see in the wild they would most likely be rare and I would be ok with that. They could even add in other starter pokemon from different regions after you've gotten the National Dex of course. Even though this is another thing that GF probably will never do because they've never done it before, but it would be nice if they did.

    I don't think the abilities will change. They're the signature abilities of the starters.

    Now, they may keep the hidden ability mechanic (I hope they do), and maybe we'll see new abilities here, not as the default ability.

    Definitely Chespin, how can you say no to this? (Click on image link)

    No matter what it's evolutions are, he's still gonna be my starter. I think Chespin is the coolest starter.

    I like how Fennekin is the favorite among the largely teen-adult presence here on the forums, because I can guarantee that it will be the least popular among the youngest generation of players, who will likely lean towards Chespin and Froakie for looks' sake.

    the only problem i see is that there are gender differences, and dont forget the all starters have up to now have been 7 times more likely to be male then female.

    i really dislike the fire/ground evo, not only i dislike the type, it just looks like it doesnt fit into pokemon.

    So? They're an exception, and still can only get those as hidden abilities.

    Besides, they're not just random Pokémon; in the games they were introduced, one of them is deliberately given early in the game to you to help with your team. Almost a "second starter".

    Based on the starters I'm actually loving the new Pokemon designs. I didn't outwardly hate the 5th gen designs, but they did not seem like the traditional Pokemon style with which I had grown up (of course that's not a bad thing at all! Things change over the years). These styles seem closer to the Johto style to me and I'm loving that!

    It's usually this way with Pokémon. Odd generations introduce "eccentric" Pokémon, being more... experimental as a whole, and they tend to have no relation to other Generations (Gen III only had Wynaut and Azurill, Gen V had nothing at all), while even generations have somewhat more of an "old-school" look and feel, lots of evolutions and babies and all that.

    How about... No more Fire/Fighting starters!
    I understand why there are so many Fire/Fighting, it's about the beginning cave, you need to get past a few Geodudes.
    GameFreak is forgetting about OTHER types that beat rock types.

    Definetly not hoping for a fat Froakie. It would help in distinguishing it from the other frog/toad based pokemon we have.

    Does anyone really want another fat frog based pokemon?

    Exactly... If the main issue is the rock type (or ground type) why not simply put a good water type for example at the beginning of the game? Nop, Fire/Fighting it is.

    Yeah. I can't wait for some new info soon too. So far, the top discussions are...

    1.) "Man, I hope [insert Starter here] looks like [insert fakemon image that is likely to be horribly wrong here]"
    2.) "How cool would it be if [insert Starter here] is [blah, blah whatever type is coolest competitively]!!"
    3.) "Hey!! I found this random, obviously fake image online.....anyone else fooled by it??"
    4.) "Chespin/Fennekin/Froakie is SOOOO much better than Froakie/Fennekin/Chespin!! I don't know why ANYONE would like him/her!!"
    5.) "Chespin looks so much like Oshawott!! And Fennekin looks so much like Vulpix/Zorua!! And Froakie looks so much like.....um.....wait...."
    6.) "WHAT!! Froakie is losing!! Why is Fennekin so popular?!? Meanwhile, Chespin chills in his cushy 2nd place spot. "

    ...I know this because I mindlessly participate in every one of these discussion knowing full well I've already discussed them.



    .....But anywho, I'm hoping for a thin, speedy evo for Froakie. He's my least favorite but there needs to be a speedy Water. We innovated by having the first mammalian Grass Starter, let's keep the ball rolling!!

    WHAT!? Froakie is losing!
    Well, that's okay.
    To be honest, I don't see whats so special about Fennekin.
    Is about because is cute, well not to me anyway. I don't remember anyone going crazy about Torchic or Piplup.
