    With just over three months to go before Sword & Shield are released, which one of the Gen 8 starters will you be choosing to start your new adventures in the Galar region?

    I don’t have a Switch, but if I did, I’d go with Scorbunny. I’ve nearly always chosen the Fire-type starter in previous generations (except the first two), and it’s a tradition that I’d likely keep going with in Gen 8.

    I leaning Sobble ATM but I like to see the final evolutions before I make my choice. That said I might use use multiple starters or none.

    Based on first forms. Definitely Scorbunny. But that might change with evolutions

    Yup, it all depands on the evolutions to to be honest. Based on the first stage only- Scorbunny or Sobble

    PokeMon2.0 Cramorant is too cute for words!

    Depends on evolutions. Based on first stage Grookey or Sobble since I usually like the Grass or Water starter.

    I am really really torn on which to pick out of Grookey or Scorbunny. I love how cute Grookey is and if it's evolutions are a Donkey Konga-like scenario I'd be all for it, but Scorbunny has been growing on me a lot and looks so cuddly and happy and cute! I think I'll have to wait for evolutions before I make a choice!

    I’m heavily leaning towards Scorbunny but I’m also considering using all 3 at once for the first time

    Definitely starting off with Sobble but I like all of the starters (the first time since Gen 3 that I've liked all 3).

    Still planning to go with Grookey.

    It's gonna take a pretty dissapointing final stage/type and/or an amazing new Grass/Electric (or I suppose Grass/Ice) to convince me otherwise.

    I’m going with Sobble, but I need to see their evolutions.

    I wanted to go with Sobble, but if the leak about it being
    turns out to be true, it may change my mind. I guess the jury is still out! But in baby form, Sobble is currently my fave.

    Don't know if I've seen that one. And why?

    It's in the rumors and leaks thread from earlier Just saw it today. I was just holding out hope for it being
    /ghost. Just feels like a more interesting typing, and pretty rare as the only ones who have it so far are the Jellicent line. There's a hand full of water/psychic types already.
    However my final decision will likely still be based on their final forms. Grookey is a close second right now!

    As a grass-type enthusiast, I’ll be starting with Grookey in my main gain. I’m hoping that it gets an interesting second typing upon evolution.

    That's about where I'm at. Like I said earlier it takes some pretty worst case scenario for Grookey's line or best case scenario elsewhere (Cat Pokemon 3 stage that's Grass/electric or Grass/Ice) for me to not go with it.

    If Gen 7 taught me anything, it's that I simply cannot decide before I've seen the final evolutions.

    Any particular starter your referencing?

    Well I rally wanted Rowlet and Popplio was my least favourite. But then I really didn't liek Rowlet's final evolution, but absolutely loved Primarina. So, I need to see the final evos before I decide.

    Fair enough. Partially to each there own. But also cause much as I love owls, much as I love Grass types, and much as I loved Rowlet/Dartrix, Decidueye did kinda leave me not as happy.

    It feels a lil less owl than I wanted it to be.

    I think that's what a lot of people thought when they first saw Grookey, that it was like if Donkey Kong was a Pokémon. XD
