    I'm seriously loving the cell-shaded type graphics, even if the overworld looks a bit rough in the video. (It's early footage, and will look much better actually on the 3DS) The battles look SOOOOOOOOO great!!!! *SQUEE*
    I can't decide between Froakie and Chespin as my starter though. Froakie is pretty awesome, but Chespin's 'hood' is made of win... Chespin has captivated me with it's sheer cute-ness and awesome hood. It shall be my starter. Mine. Dibs.

    Both of the legendaries are greatness!!! I'm definitely going with the Y version though. Super vulture/dragon/beast of death? Yes please!

    I kind of lost interest in Pokemon, but I think I'll get this one. I'll probably choose the fire starter.

    What is Chespin? An armadillo? I'll hold my starter judgement until I see the evolutions personally... (Froakie is my favorite of the three though. :p )

    Also is Chespin's "shape" is really similar to Oshawatt or is it just me?

    Fennekin looks great, it's like a Fire-type Zorua!

    Honestly speaking, tho, I'm nowhere near as excited for these titles as I was for Gen V's Black & White... Probably because I'm still worked up over Kaiju Combat. I'm terrible at hype-multitasking. :d Still, looking forward to seeing the legendaries of those games.
    And they better sneak Mewtwo in there somewhere, too!

    I agree, Fenekin is the best starter there I can see. The others are a little too cutesy for me. I agree that Mewtwo and Mew should be in there and NOT be tourney exclusive. As for black and white....I actually did not like these games at all sadly so I hope this one restores my enjoyment if I get the system and these games.

    Looks like I'll have to get a 3DS now! :) Absolutely love all the pokemon games, wonder how many new pokes they'll have? Only downside is the inevitable secret legendaries that will be in the game files but you can only get them from the inevitable "Z" version. :(

    Nice to see a "desert" fire starter by the way... Also am I the only one thinking Froakie is going to be a "bubbles" pokemon with a "bubble bath beard" (I see the start of a mustache)? Could be cool like based on how amphibian eggs are usually in clusters...

    just speculation. :p

    ... Ya, I hate the whole Yellow/Crystal/Emerald/Platinum/B2 & W2 thing... They're the "best"/most updated versions but you already put so much time and effort into one of the original two... Maybe with nintendo getting into the whole DLC thing it could be that instead... I hope...

    out of those three the best looking is the frog thing.

    chespin looks stupid, and the other one looks like that stupid leaf pokemon that i hate.

    and the legendary ones looks really lame. i hope the other ones be better.

    Sorry for the double post, but let's hear personal starters!
    For me it was (in chronological order of games played): Totodile, Charmander, Treecko, Turtwig, Tepig, and while it all depends on evolutions I have a feeling I'll go with Froakie...
    Second play-throughs/"Yellow"s were: Cyndaquil, Squirtle, Mudkip, Chimchar, Snivy, and depends but probably Chespin...
    (I've always been a reptile-pokemon guy and my favorite reptiles are snakes but Snivy/Serperior were just so "meh" in design compared to the glory that was Tepig/Emboar... Serperior looked like a fancy unripe banana to me.)

    Oh, and favorite Generation if you have one, I love all the generations but #3's pokemon designs felt "off" to me like it was more of a spin-off than a pokemon game... So I love 1, 2, 4, and 5 equally but 3 is definetly my least favorite... Nostalgia and importance are the only things keeping Gen1 from being below the other three (would still be way above Gen3 but definetly not on par with 2, 4, and 5 without importance/nostalgia...)

    So there are mine, what about you guys?

    EDIT:
    Ya, I was getting a Grass Musketeer+Zorua+Vulpix vibe from Fennekin as well... Really not feeling it from Fennekin either...
    I can't really see where they're going with Chespin... Chipmunk? But the long nails on the feet and tail say otherwise... Very "err, what?" starter...
    Froakie definitely looks the best out of the three in my opinion. :)
    These Legendaries definetly don't look the best but they sure as heck look better than Dialga and Palkia (those guys are just weird to me...) They do fit the style well in my opinion though. :)

    Mine were Squirtle, Cyndaquil, Treecko, Piplup and Oshawott for my first playthroughs. I always seem to like the water starters the best once I try them all. Oh, and did anyone else notice at 25 seconds into the announcement video, the player is using ROLLERBLADES! :)

    well for me, altough i only have played gen 1 and two. my favorites are: charmander, cyndaquil, torchic, the boar thing.

    thinking about it usually the fire one.but the thing is that on the 1st one, i preffer charizard in order to use nidoking.

    btw i preffer use tough looking pokemons.

    PS anyone plays pokemon online?

    Chespin is based on Chestnuts and hedgehogs. The Japanese name is Harimaron, which is a mixture of the Japanese words for hedgehog, pin, and the french word for chestnut. (There are strong implications that this generation is going to have France as the baseline setting for the region) He's really grown on me throughout the day, and now I freaking love him and his spiky/reptile-like hood and tail. =3

    As for my favorite generations, I have to say II, III, and V are my favorites. The fourth gen felt really off to me for some reason, and except for the new evolutions (Gliscor and Porygon-Z are legit), I didn't really care for most of the Pokemon. I got on the Pokemon bandwagon a bit late, so the first gen doesn't have as much nostalgia for me as the second and third ones do. The fifth gen is probably my absolute favorite region. I love the Pokemon designs (Most of them at least), the enhancements to gameplay (Thank you for asking me if I want to use another Repel!!!), all the throwbacks to the original Red and Blue, and the feeling that I was starting a brand new series of Pokemon games.

    Also: Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil (<3), Mudkip, Turtwig, Snivy, and soon to be Chespin.

    POKEMON CHALLENGE!!!!!

    Rate the starters of each region against each other. Grass against Grass, Fire versus Fire, etc. (I judged them based on their whole evolution line, with the exception of the sixth gen's starters, since we don't know what they are yet) Example:

    Turtwig>Chespin>Snivy>Bulbasaur>Treecko>Chikorita
    Cydaquil>Charmander>Fennekin>Torchic>Tepig>Chimchar
    Mudkip>Totodile>Froakie>Squirtle>Oshawatt>Piplup

    Now if I give one point to each starter for their place in line, and add together the numbers of all the Pokemon from the same gen, I can determine the order of the regions based on their starters. (Lower numbers are better, obviously) Example:

    Gen I - 10 points (Four for Bulbasaur, two for Charmander, four for Squirtle)
    Gen II - 9 points (Six for Chikorita, one for Cyndaquil, etc.)
    Gen III - 10 points (Five for Treecko, etc.)
    Gen IV - 13 points
    Gen V - 13 points
    Gen VI - 8 points

    My Gen ranking would then be: VI>II>I=III>IV=V

    Not exactly what I expected, lol. Even though I like the fifth gen the best, I apparently like the other region's starters more. (Stupid Fire/Fighting starters dragging the rest of the gen down. =P) Get to it!
