Team Litten, how does it feel to be a complete and utter joke in the eyes of people with good taste?

Popplio won.

Archer, Fighter, Siren (which counts as Singer I guess) is a good theme. Gen 6 also had a prominent theme: Warrior, Magician, Ninja. It's kind of interesting, they make them less "animal-like", even though each one of them is clearly based on an animal.

Too bad the designs are terrible. I think they're overall my least favourite starters, even worse than Gen 2.

I guess i'm the only one... probably not but most likely minority who actually don't mind delphox's design.. it's kinda fun seeing a magical girl ends up becoming a witch lol
I don't think Delphox's design is that bad. I was mostly disappointed in the fact that they can't have a Fire starter stay on all four... Something that still seems to be the case.

Everyone knows you dump your starter on to the PC after about three gym badges anyway.

Hahaha, WHAT?

Man, they messed up. Imo I think the starters look fine, but their evolutions are terrible. Especially the fire Pokemon. Making it humanoid is a big mistake. Could've been cool, but of course they had to go with the generic route.

I sincerely don't get the hate for the starter3s. I think they're all great. It's the first time since gen 4 I've liked all almost equally.

In case people are wondering:

Junaiper - Gaogaen - Ashireenu
Juniper/Sniper - Tiger Roar - Siren
It's more like

Gaogaen = Gao + ga + kaen = Roar Fang Flame
Ashireenu = Ashika + shireenu = Sea Lion Siren

They have deleted the tweet, hah.
Leaks named them Beltigre, Robinroot and Brionne. I wonder if they will change them... I love Robinroot as a name ( but I'm going to chose Litten as my starter. Love Torracat, even if Beltigre is meh)

Decisions, Flying Archer or Tiger Mask.

I really like both but if Tiger Mask is another Fire/Fighting i'm going to go with Flying Archer.

I've gone with Fire every Gen, not sure whether to stick with that.

Popilo's evo looks like the dog from Nightmare before Christmas

Still not a fan of these. Litten's final evolution is the biggest disappointment since Emboar.
It annoys me to noend because the first evolution is awesome. Then it all goes nuts with the third one.

I'll be getting the archer owl, just because of the third evo.
