The grass thing went through some weird stages growing up. As a kid he was all happy, then in high school he was the dork. He was bullied, and while some girls befriended him, he could never find a girlfriend or get laid because of how goofy he was. So as an adult he left it all behind and tried to be a mysterious wanderer, finding the meaning of life, but at the end of the day, deep inside, he knows that he's still a dork and he can't sleep at night because of his social anxiety that has only been growing and growing because he never talked to anyone about it and now it consumes him.

Alright so according to Joe "Joe Merrick" Merrick Tiger3 has an appalingly bad name. Good to know.

I would hope that the typing is not appallingly overdone cause I've been calling Fire/Dark for ages and Fire/Fighting would just be depressing.

If ENG Tiger3 name is a terrible pun as a name, ill embrace it.
I already love him and I am naming mine BRAK.

I've been loving the look of Rowlet's evolutions since the Chinese leak, finally, a Grass type starter worthy of headlining a generation, even if it gets only half the traction as Greninja. Hooded archers have been, and always will be, the shit.

Do we know Tiger3's (is that what we're calling it) type yet? Is there any hope it wont be fire/fighting?

I don't know how anyone can't like a Pokemon that smashes Pikachu's head in with a table


It's what sold me right away. Unlike the other Fire/Fighting starters ( even if he isnt) he's painted as way more aggressive. I love it <3

Very strong possibility of being fire/dark

Haha, looks like someone dun goofed. Already seen these thanks to the concept art leaks so no surprise for me. Solid bunch of starters (finally after Gen V and VI were really underwhelming), dunno if I'll actually put one on my team though. If I will, I'm probably gonna go with Litten. Hoping for some good stats/abilities.

we don't know any of the typings

we have only known about there designs for the longest time, this is the first piece of news about them we have seen in a while

but most people are pegging him to either be fire/fighting or fire/dark

So glad the grass starter concept is confirmed =D Best grass starter for a long time.

Big shame about Litten, but at least Popplio is one of the few tier three evolutions in the whole series that hasn't ended up as a two-legged humanoid. Always hated that trend...

He's one of the two. Fire/Poison could be some weird curveball but I dont expect that.

Fire one looks too punchy

Grass looks like he is wearing a hoody...


I'll be taking the grass one then.

Hmmm, I hope it's fire/dark then. Just anything but fighting, please.

I'm glad the leaks were real in the end, I actually like all of them a lot. If I weren't such a huge bird fan I'd probably have a harder time picking a starter.

With pokebank none of this choosing a starter shit matters. And if there is another friend safari it matters lesserer.

That being said the fire starter continues game freaks obsession with fucking up stage 3 evolutions. If something is a biped. Keep it that way. If it has 4 legs keep it on 4 legs.

Puplio is trash ill catch it in friend safari and box it. Level it to its final evo with 1 round of beating the elite 4 with exp share on and never actually use it.

Now robin hood owl is fucking bad ass. I'll 5/6 iv hidden power that shit with egg moves just because it looks awesome.
