    I like Oshawott a lot, but I think Snivy is kindof cute too. The problem is I'm not really a huge fan of the third stages of any of the three starters

    I can relate somewhat since I find Jalorda (Serperior) to be a step down from its two previous stages in terms of design.

    Oshawott has to be my favorite starter from the Unova starters. I see how people may not like it's evolutionary line as it goes from a biped to a quadruped. But I think Samurott is a great final evolution.

    My issue with Samurott is that it resembles a sea lion more than a sea otter, which I've always found weird for a Starter Pokemon.

    Who else agrees that Samurott looks ten times cooler when he stands up on two feet, not on four feet, looking like a badass natural evolution of Dewott.

    Samurott is indeed a sea otter, but he also has elements of sea lions and, of course, samurais.

    In some way I thought that was cool because of the samurai motifs and I used to have Oshawott as my favourite Unova starter for a while. But since Serperior has gotten more attention in the competitive scene, I don't like the Oshawott and its evolutionary line as much these days.

    In some ways it's similar to the theme the third-stage Kalos starters went with: Chesnaught is a paladin, Delphox is a mage, and Greninja is a ninja (obviously). So both the Gen 5 and 6 final-stage Water starters are based on feudal Japan.

    True but to be honest I used to like the scalchop Oshawott and Dewott used as weapons because I never thought shells could be used as weapons in the first place. I thought that was a cool thing too.

    It's not such a huge change however when you consider that the basis for both Pokemon are aquatic mammals. They at least share that in common.

    Snivy. It definitely felt like a grass gen.

    I feel like this bears mentioning since I didn't bring it up in my original post, but there's another reason I chose Snivy.

    It's a tie between Oshawott and Snivy for me.
  14. If Snivy's Hidden Ability wasn't, well, hidden, it'd be my joint favourite. But, since the beginning, Oshawott and its' evolutions have been my favourite, Oshawott because it was adorable in the anime and Samurott because it looked cool and had a good moveset and stats.

    Snivy. Always Snivy. I also love Serperior's design the most out of the three final evolutions.

    Tepig. It's cute and Emboar hits hard. Granted ik the Fire/Fighting combo was getting old but I still like it. Plus the anime made me love it even more. Reckless Choice Band Flare Blitz is an amazing nuke too

    Snivy. I'm a sucker for grass-types, it's arguably the closest thing to Treecko besides Treecko, and it's smug.

    Oshawott line - Dewott is amazing and so is Samurott (it probably should've stayed bipedal though)

    Snivy is cool but even though Serperior and Servine are alright, I was expecting it to turn into something cooler looking

    I have to say Tepig. It looks uniquely cute and Emboar's overall shape/fatness reminds me a lot of Normal-type, which I have a soft spot for.

    So I learned something new a while back. In Pokemon Adventures, Blake (or to some of you Nate of BW2) has a Dewott. One thing I noticed for the first time is that it's always looks like it's pissed. So what I learned was, apparently that's how Dewott's were always designed, looking pissed off. Someone added even more information that Blake's Dewott literally has the serious nature lol, along with the rest of Blake's other Pokemon. I just thought that was funny and it sounded too coincidental for the writer of Pokemon Adventures to established Dewott's pissed-off look even further lol.
