So in the leak they are hinting that the starters might get variant evos. That would be cool, and I hope so since I'm not a fan of there. Maybe Popplio's

Reasons:
-If I do not catch a fighting type Pokemon, I'll choose it since it's artwork shows it will be one.
Actually, the text on the concept art suggests it'll be a Fire/Dark because it fights dirty.

That's another leak altogether.
We have to stop believing everything we see on the net just because one rumour has been confirmed.

For those who didn't want to believe Litten evo was real and are boxing it right away https://media.giphy.com/media/10hfegXGKVRVNm/giphy.gif

It's okay Litten, I'll stick by you till the end. I've grown to like it actually, and I'm glad my efforts to grow attatched to it weren't in vain.

Looks like Litten is going to get the Popplio treatment now.

To be honest I'm surprised, this gen we've seemingly had a starter that was the consistent favourite (being mah boi Rowlet) in its first and final stages. I mean last gen Froakie overtook Fennekin and before that, Samurott caught up to Serperior.

Also, betting that 'Entermaid' will get Draining Kiss and Sweet Kiss to represent all those sloppy seal/sea lion kisses that they give eachother and humans.
 
Litten will be more like emboar...everyone hates it.

Now now yuoke, stop projecting :p

In all seriousness, I've seen Panthster pretty well received, just not as well as Robbinroot and Entermaid are. It's wicked overshadowed.

Im not projecting, Ive never seen one person to like Emboar, and so far besides here noone likes roid cat.

Some people do like Emboar, it's just that people like you hatemonger over a bunch of pixels and assume no one like it \('w')/

I like Emboar and the Litten evo.

Welp, seems I'm getting Rowlett as my starter now. Going to pick Popplio for my Female trainer run though.

I think what I dislike about these starter evolutions is the same thing that I disliked about last gen's: they're all so... weirdly humanoid. It's not just a biped/quadruped thing, 'cause Typhlosion is bipedal, but clearly monstrous, while Greninja is quadrupedal but is styled like a dude crouching. It's like, if they redid Blastoise in the current style, he'd be a ~firefighter-themed turtle~ but he looks like a vaguely turtlish guy with a shell backpack and hose. All I want is a big turtle. It's partly a taste thing, for sure – I don't like humanoid Pokemon – but also that *all three* of them are this way. If I was down on Blaziken for being too human-like, I could choose Swampert or Sceptile instead.

I guess I want my big animal starters back. I want a big tiger or a big owl or a big sea lion.

How many people like Emboar and 'Panthster'? Nunn.

I'll show myself out

Okay, now that we've got a good idea that these starters are real, what's the guesses for types and names? I've seen it tossed around a lot, but honestly, Arrowl is too obvious not to use for one of Rowlet's evolutions. As for Popplio's final Evo, I see something based off of Mermaid, Selkie, or Siren as potential name roots. And I honestly have, no clue for Litten's e-e

But for types, Grass/Flying, Fire/Dark and Water/Fairy are the most likely, at least from my perspective.

Also, anyone else kinds notice how Popplio's final Evo is kinda selkie like? The blue that remains and the lighter blue frills make it look as if it had been peeling Popplio's skin off to become more human-like (the hair and eyelashes, mostly), which I love, especially as a Scotsman because it's a myth originating from around here :p

Sorry if I'm repeating myself or other members, I've completely forgot stuff in my mini hiatus :p

I'm kind of glad to see the trio confirmed.

Archer Rowlet is my favourite and reaffirms my choice in the bird but Siren Popplio is a viable option too, considering I hated Popplio at his reveal. Another fire/fighting starter, or possibly a pure fire carbon copy of Emboar, is bad though.
