I actually really hated what Chestnaught looks like when I first saw it, it's name and the colours and slight appearance of Buzz Lightyear was too much for me, it also looked hardly anything like Chespin. But now I've grown a bit of a fondness for it, I especially LOVE its shiny form!
I always give the starters a chance, and I went with Fennekin and I am sick to death of it being bashed. Like, ONE MORE FRICKING TIME! Anyway.
I do not like Greninja for one reason, how overrated it is. Heck, I can defeat some people using a Protean one with a DELPHOX (YEAH BEAT THAT!)
But I would like to like Greninja, but I just can't face it. I swear more people like it then people like Charizard! (Correct me if I am wrong but I feel Squirtle actually has more love then Charizard, it's just noisy kids who make things out to be more popular)
I am a little disappointed with Delphox's move pool, but I've worked it out and mine is very good, has pulled me out of tough spots.
But I do believe in giving every starter a chance, I hated Emboar for quite a while, but then finally used it and kinda liked it... it's now on par with the rest of them. I also think whoever write POTW is a huge Chespin fan (not that there's anything wrong with that! Chespin's quite cute) because of how they describe Greninja and Chestnaught.
