    Ledyba I sleep with bugz.

    For black, Oshawott, because I always choose the Water starter on my first run. And for white, Tepig, because my friend chooses Snivy. That way we have all 3 starters.

    I'm gonna choose Oshawott although I will also be using Snivy and Tepig.

    Tepig. So far I have always chosen the Fire starter, and the other two have much worse movepools. It also means I dont need to find a space for a fighting type. (I need a solid fighting type in all of my teams as I had a terrible experience in HG when my only fighting moves were Focus Blast on Typhlosion and Ampharos and really struggled because my team was bad in general.)
    He is also the best starter when it comes to gyms doing great against the second, third and seventh gyms, while Snivy is good in one gym and Dewott is good in one too.
    So yeah, suitable typing, more effective at gyms, better movepool and I like his design better.

    Snivy all the way. I'm usually a Water-type person, but Snivy just appeals to me so much. I love snakes, and nature, and the color green, and... yeah.

    It shall be male, and its nickname shall be Jeremy.

    Oshawott, it's got my favourite final evolution of the 3 and the last time I chose the water starter was in Silver.

    I am picking Oshawott! Oshawott is my favorite out of the starters. It is just so awesome! I really like Samurott so I can't wait to have my own. It is an awesome water type and I havn't chose a water starter on my first time before. I want to have an awesome adventure with my Oshawott. I am going to name mine Aqua.

    I think Tepig cause it have a great atack and hp stat in it last evolution and great movepool
  10. Aegon

    I'm picking Oshawott, because it appeals to me more than the others do. I usually pick the water starter. It shall be nicknamed Triton. My second choice would be Tepig, however.

    I'll pick Snivy in my white version. Just because I like the last form of that Pokémon.
    And there's another reason. I wanted to choose Snivy or Oshawott in my japanese black version. I chose Oshawott. So now I want to see the adventure with Snivy.
    Oshawott is a good choice too. I learned him TM (like surf and cascade).

    I don't like Tepig final form... So it is why I don't hesitate between Snivy and Tepig

    Tepig. I like the Fire Type Starters from all Generations (even though I like the Treecko Line better than the Torchic Line) Also, my brother is choosing Oshawott, and we could get each other Starter's Data in our PokeDex. Hopefully one of my friends will choose Snivy.

    I chose Oshawott on my Japan Black. So I will go with Tepig for my White. I won't pick Snivy due to it's Awful movepool.

    Riversong Buggy down.

    Oshawott, though it seems to be the most popular starter. Oh well. I like water types, and the final evo has really grown on me.

    Next would be Snivy. I don't like Tepig's evo line.

    Probably gunna pick Smugleaf since I love the design for the 1st and 2nd evo and its stats arent bad but I dont like its last evo much so i might just not evolve it on its second stage =p

    I liked it from the start and did never think it was a rip-off of Piplup(luckely people stopped that). I think it looks both cute and cool. Water is also my favorite type among Fire/Grass/Water. I also love the evolutions and I don't care if Samurott doesn't lokk that much like Oshawott and Dewott. It is also a good mixed sweeper and is one of the best water types of Unova.

    May we have an undecided option for the poll?
    I think my friend will be choosing Snivy or possibly Oshawott and so I will pick the two opposites, although i still think i may just box them as even though i will not complain, I do not like these starters as much, usually it's easy for me but not at all this time. There is also that many other awesome pokemon of the same types as the starters as to not need them.
    Tepig line < Chandellure and Volcarona
    Oshawott line < Caracossta, Seismitoad and Jellicent
    Snivy line < Lilligant, Sawsbuck, Ferrothorn
    (all of the above are in my opinion, others may certainly vary)
    There are just way too many other awesome pokemon that i like more-so.

    MagnetonNr1 Steel-type Trainer

    I will pick Oshawott, because when I first play a Pokémon game, I usually go with the Water starter. Plus I don't like any of the other Water Pokémon in Unova.

    I will probably choose snivy in white and oshawott in black. im kinda really wanting a fire type starter though since i never played through hg ss with cyndaquil but i strongly dislike tepigs evolutions so im not sure that ill pick tepig
  20. DaTreeko =3

    DaTreeko =3 Be VERY afraid.

    I'm getting an Oshawott for Black and choosing Snivy for the 3rd version. :p
    I'm picking Oshawott because I plan to have a fir and grass type on my final team, and there really isn't alot of water types.(from what i've seen)
    Snivy is because I want a Panpour. I love them Panpour. Plus, I've really liked snakes.
    And Serperier(sp?) is so elegant, every time I think about it, I imagine it is some King or Butler for some fancy people or Pokemon. At first I was all liek, "OMG SNAKE! IT'S A SNAKE! SNAKKKKKEE! Gamefreak, I had the feeling you and me shared similar thoughts!"
    (I had a perfect idea of a snake starter, and *poof* It's there!)
