I didn't start to appreciate fire types until I met Torchic in the RSE days of my youth, and after then I opened up to others. I'm iffy with Litleo's line still, but Talonflame and mayhaps Braixen will be on the team.
Yep, the starters evolving into three equally bad*** final stages is almost intuitive. Chespin, to me, was the most lackluster of the three, yet I am optimistic his final evo will redeem him.
The fossils are amazing; I disappointed at first because we didn't get mammals, but gosh - I am thoroughly impressed with their designs. Naturally I am leaning more towards Tyrantrum (nom nom nom), but I love Aurorus as well.
-squirms- Oh, I wish we could see Skrelp's evo already. I must pair it with Kingdra.
