Choosing a Starter

Posted by SwagtronYOLO , Jun 17 2013 · 659 views

Pokemon X
So, I decided that this October I'll be getting Pokemon X because I love Pokemon Games and this one is looking pretty fantastic so far.
I've decided I'll want to raise a Sylveon (because Eevee is my favorite pokemon ever and I love all of the eeveelutions), a Talonflame (for sky battles and the fact that it's a normal flying type with a second type attached.  I think that's pretty sweet), a Gogoat (because Gogoat's concept is awesome), a Clauncher (it looks awesome) and most likely a Flabebe (Flower Sprite Pokemon?  YES!).
Anyway, I'll also probably name them after Fairy Tale characters due to my obsession with Grimm and Andersen works.  Talonflame is so going to be a name from The Juniper Tree.  
Anyway, due to my pokemon decisions above, I already have each starter type covered.  Not only that, but I actually do like all of the initial designs for each starter pokemon.  Yes, even Froakie.  I didn't like it at first, but the little guy's grown on me.  Chespin is awesome, Fennekin is a Fennec fox pokemon (awesome) and water starters are some of my favorites in battle (though I do love the grass type for their designs and concepts).  
So, yeah.  I'm torn.  I have no idea which one to choose...

Take Chespin, because I'm planning on getting a Fennekin and want an early type advantage. =)

Chespin is soooo adorable.  =3

I'm planning on Fennekin, (because Froakie is what even and Chespin just looks like Oshawott), but honestly I'm waiting until we see their evolutions before making any final decisions. You should probably do that too?

That will definitely factor into my decision.  Though, I think by now I'm ruling out Fennekin simply because everyone and their dog is going to choose that starter.  XD


That leaves me with either taking huge pity on Froakie or going with the adorable Chespin (which I think is awesome because he's a chestnut.  =3)

I'll be getting Fennekin because of tradition.

But Talonflame and Litleo are worrying me with how Fire heavy my team will be... Because I want to train both of them during my playthrough as well.

I'll be choosing Froakie myself, due to my weird pattern with selecting starters.

I don't know about that, everyone I've talked to so far has said they'll choose Froakie or, more commonly, Chespin. But Fennekin should totally be the most popular, because fennecs.


I kind of concur with ET that with Talonflame in the team there'll be a bit of overlap, but then, so there'll be with Gogoat/Chespin and Clauncher/Froakie. But who knows? We've barely seen 20 Pokémon so far. There's probably some more awesome ones down the road to take the place of the ones we're imagining so far.



Though, frankly, in my opinion it's too early to even decide which version to get, seeing as how we still have all of no idea what the differences will be. Other than Xerneas and Yveltal, and I think both of them are awesome, so that doesn't really change anything.



So yeah! Waiting is my choice.

I always just go with the mascot and Yveltal's so much more awesome than Xerneas, so it was an easy choice for me. :P

I wanna get a Fennekin but I get the idea everyone else is gonna get one because it's the cutest and coolest of all the starters. How can I say my Pokemon is the best when everyone else has gone and got one?


Stupid people, ruining my games for me...

Yeah, Yveltal's got a really nice design, but something about Xerneas just seems so majestic.  Or maybe I just really like the movie Princess Mononoke and think he looks like the forest god.  XP


Also, @Automaton:  How dare you insult Chespin that way!  >=/


(Though, he is a fennec, so I totally see why you'd think that.  =P)  Also they did the same thing with legendaries.

tekulo, no matter how bad 2017 is, it will be better for me knowing that you went into it with the username "swagtronYOLO"

A winter holiday being celebrated in November? Obviously this can only be the work of...

September 14th 2016 will forever be remembered as the day Tekulo became The Smoothest Person to Ever Live

How am I supposed to travel all of these islands?

Lapis Lazuli your water wings let you fly across the galaxy I think you can handle three islands

Hmm... I really have no strong opinion of either of them.
Both of them probably suck.

Gathered friends,

We are gathered here today to honour the passing of Tekulo. Killed by a shark and shot by a bow. Some would say no one deserves such a death. Others say he was asking for it.

Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.


Try not to worry too much about it. Deep breaths. Scented candles. Meditation.

Imagine a whale.

A majestic, fabulous whale.

She's coming to say hello.

She's getting kinda close and invading your personal bubble.

There's not enough room for the two of you!

No, whale, noooooo!

I thought about it, but that led me on this existential space-out stream of consciousness metaphorical...thing.

It was weird.

So, lesson learned: when interacting with the personification of a concept, don't try to employ that concept on them.

The joke's always on you. You're glue in a rubber band world.




What is the location of a 2x2 LEGO brick that goes by the name Samantha?

"She's looking for a decomposed laptop that sports a five o'clock shadow."

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative." :P

Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.

I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.

Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

Tekulo in the Green → Black Six
Hello! Today it occured to me that I chat with a handful of staff members both on and off the site. this also made me realize they report directly to you. Whatever gossip they have spread about me behind my back, I assure you, is the truth (unless it isn't).

I remember wheb (edit: wheb is totally fetch and is in no way a typo)

Meanwhile my wardrobe is so vanilla that people chase me down the street asking me for ice cream.

Made my day. I would totally upvote this more than once if I could :3

I found a Voltex amiibo once. It was pretty terrible.


That's why I just don't follow Tekulo. You should try it =D

I get that, but that's not enough. Love can't be reliant on truth, I don't want someone not to love me because we don't believe the same truth.

Love is unconditional, love loves despite flaws. Love is selfless, kind; it protects, it hopes.

Love stops hate.

Love will win.
