    And our fastest right now is 78 wow.... *shakes head* what we do without Greninja.

    What I like about Delphox and Greninja is this, they are the pokemon that can fill up the role that are highly sought after, Special sweeper and Dual sweeper respectively.

    Greninja will have more Speed than Sceptile. If it doesn't, it fails as a ninja! >_<

    Default Starter thoughts

    Short version: I think Chesnaught has slight color scheme issues, Greninja has some color scheme and slight design issues, and Delphox is the greatest starter design since Blaziken imo (And I can practically guarantee you that NOBODY will agree with me on that one)

    Overall, I like all 3 final evos. Many people were only so disappointed in them since they set their expectations too high. I had high hopes for cool evos as well...then all those expectations were thrown out the second I saw the 1st evos (I liked them, but was not impressed really at all). From there, I had really low expectations for what the finals would be like, but at the same time hoped they would redeem the 1st evos. They did, and that is all that really mattered to me.

    Basically: Delphox>>>>Greninja>Chesnaught
    Out of the gens in general (in terms of final evos): Gen 3 >>>> Gen 4 > Gen 2 > Gen 6 > Gen 1 > Gen 5
    Grass types: Sceptile > Torterra > Serperior > Meganium > Venusaur > Chesnaught
    Water types: Swampert > Empoleon > Feraligatr > Blastoise > Greninja > Samurott
    Fire types: Blaziken > Delphox > Infernape > Typhlosion > Emboar > Charizard
    (Sue me, I never was a huge fan of Gen 1)

    Man, I'm so torn between what I'm choosing for my team. Originally, when X and Y were announced, I was all for Froakie. Then when the starters were released I planned on skipping the Kalos starters and using a Mega Blastoise. But THEN when I discovered that you don't get them early in the game, so I decided on just using both Froakie and Blastoise for a water team. Then, when Greninja and Chesnaught were leaked, I decided to just use Chesnaugt, Mega Blastoise, and Blaziken. But now Greninja's starting to grow on me, plus I kind of want to use a Mega Charizard X as my main Pokémon, but I don't even know when you receive the Mega Stone in the game.

    Oh, and if anyone was wondering, for me it's:
    Chesnaught > Greninja > Delphox
    Grass: Torterra > Sceptile > Chesnaught > Meganium > Venusaur > Serperior
    Water: Blastoise > Feraligatr > Empoleon > Greninja > Swampert = Samurott
    Fire: Emboar > Blaziken = Infernape = Typhlosion > Charizard > Delphox

    This is why chesnaught is colored the way he is. It makes sense. The only colors I would adjust is the shell. Otherwise he matches up perfectly.

    I HATED Delphox when I first saw it. But after seeing some fan art (like this: http://i.imgur.com/Qfy7ZuV.png ), she kinda grew on me. It's funny because I originally loved Fennekin and was planning on choosing it & hated Froakie. Now it's the other way around - Greninja is awesome! Chesnaught isn't quite what I was hoping for but it's okay. For me...

    This is what "color scheme issues" meant. He could use some more green. I guess I could say "slight color scheme issues" instead.

    i've never liked the water starter the best.... til now. and i was really excited for fennekin because it was cute, looked like it woulndn't be fire/fighting, and cuz well i generally like fire starters. but delphox... i feel like they could've tweaked the current design a little bit and I would be totally cool with it [like have the robe flare up at the bottom like flames]. as it is, i'm trying to force myself to like it through fanart [where it looks great because in fanart the head isn't freakishly small]

    All that it has been revealed to e able to learn are: Frogadier's moves, Surf, Waterfall, Extrsensory, Aerial Ace, Water Shuriken, and Smack Down. Most of those are TMs/HMs, but it's still compatible with them. Hopefully someone will leak its Dark type moves.

    Fire

    Charizard>Typhlosion>Blaziken>Delphox>Infernape>Emboar

    Water
    Empoleon>Samurott>Swampert>Blastoise>Greninja>Feraligator

    Oh oh! I want to try!

    Fire>Water>Grass
    VI>V>III>II>IV>I

    .;~Grass~;.
    Serperior>Chestnaught>Sceptile>Meganum>Torterra>Ve nusaur.

    .;~Water~;.
    Samurott>Swampert>Empoleon>Feraligator>Greninja>Bl astoise.

    .;~Fire~;.
    Delphox>Typhlosion>Blaziken>Monferno>Charizard>Emb oar.

    Blasphemous, I know. Especially since I'm not a huge fan of the original starters and I'm really starting to like Delphox. ;P

    I'm extremely happy that Chesnaught can learn needle arm now all I want is for him to learn shell smash. He'll become deadly with that move. Also Spiky Shield sounds like a pretty cool move.

    Wow, I agree. Now Delphox is growing on me too! When I first saw Delphox, I was deeply disappointed and considered not evolving Braixen.

    Starter rankings? Alrighty then.

    Grass:
    Sceptile > Torterra > Chesnaught > Venusaur > Serperior > Meganium (Never warmed up to the Chikorita line. Not sure why.)

    Fire:
    Infernape > Charizard > Typhlosion > Blaziken > Emboar > Delphox (I really dislike the entire Fennekin line.)

    Water:
    Empoleon > Swampert > Feraligatr > Blastoise > Samurott > Greninja (Greninja's still a turn-off for me, but I see myself warming up to it after a while.)

    The future surrounds us.

    Let us begin.

    For me it goes like this right now

    Typhlosion > Charizard > Infernape > Blaziken > Delphox > Emboar
    Sceptile > Serperior > Venusaur > Chesnaught > Torterra > Meganium
    Greninja > Empoleon > Swampert > Feraligatr > Samurott> Blastoise

    The first 6 are my choices for each gen, hard time between infernape and empo, and charizard and venu but that mega evo X omg *fangirls about the blue fire*

    Seriously, guys, let's stop with the starter rankings. xD It's getting a little annoying tbh.

    Angry

    Accuse me of being in denial, but I'm still really hoping that these starters are fakes. They look like a two-year-old created them. They're inconsistent. They're just... thoroughly disappointing.

    That said, having originally been Team Fennekin (and barring movepools that have yet to be divulged), I think I've converted to Froakie with Fennekin in close second. Which of course means:

    Greninja=Delphox>Chesnaught

    And in the grand scheme of things:

    Grass: Meganium>Torterra>Sceptile>Venusaur>Serperior>Chesnaught
    Fire: Emboar>Typhlosion>Charizard>Blaziken=Delphox>Infernape
    Water: Swampert>Feraligatr>Blastoise>Greninja>Empoleon>Samurott

    And gen-wise:

    II>III>I>V>IV>VI

    I have a feeling six will bump four to last place based on the story element, but I'm not holding my breath. If the starter final evos are any indication, all the art budget went to Mega Evolutions and that shouldn't be the case. If I can't stand to look at my team, there's an issue.
