Y will be my main and seeing as how Fennekin is my favorite of the starters I'll definitely use it. I wanted to use Fletchling because I almost always use the regional bird on my first playthrough but I am not a huge fan of Talonflame's design, so that line is a bit of a toss up and depends on how cool the other flying types are. Unlike many I definitely don't want to limit myself to Gen 6 Pokemon so I will likely pick Bulbasaur when that option presents itself and use it on my team as well. The idea of two starters on the team is pretty appealing and I like the contrast between Fennekin/Bulbasaur and I think they will mesh well together on a team. Other than those two, I am pretty sure I want to use Spritzee as well. I definitely will have to use a Fairy type, at least on the first playthrough, to utilize one of the new features in the game and so far Spritzee is the most likely candidate. I really like its design and I think it has a lot of potential; but at the same time its evolutions could also be awful so it just depends on that.
So as of right now my team looks like:
I'll be picking up X a few months after Y and as of right now I plan to use Froakie but that's subject to change based on what the final evos of Froakie and Chespin look like. I do definitely know I'll be using Torchic however. Once again, the idea of two starters is just tantalizing, but I probably won't use a Kanto starter because three seems a bit overkill. I really like the Inkay/Malamar line and will possibly use it on this team. I'm also considering Dedenne but it really just depends on what its evo is like, assuming it even will evolve. Other than that, I want to keep my options open.
X team as of right now:
- Dedenne (?)
