I like pikachu and cyndaquil, but if you could have other starters it would be eevee,(I cant beleive they got rid of that)riolu, gible, dratini, it would be cool if they gave you the option of the small legendary pokemon such as mew, celebi, jirachi, manaphy, or phionie.
welllllll I agree that riolu would have been a good starter and they should have kept eevee but a legendaries go that is going a little far. Celebi, manaphy and phione are part of the story line. And mew, thats a little odd as a starter...I'm not sure what I would do if I saw a mew washed up on a beach some where.....and wigglytuff's guild wouldn't take it so well ether. "OMG its mew, catch it!" yea not a good outcome...But main point is there were a lot of good starters that should have been an option.
