Magby is quite an awesome choice, (maybe a second rival or recurring character has a smoochum?)
I wouldnt call it bias though... I choose my full team considering wether some little fanboy has gone WOW imma use it!
If the starter is completely OU, then i wont really consider it.
It's just how i am. Sorry if you took offense.
Well that doesnt count then.
I just think Fire pokemon in general are overrated because of all the fanboys that are like 'MAH CHARIZARD. IT KIKS UR BUT!!!!!!!1!!!!!1111!!!!' I dont hate them, I just dont use them...
What i hate are pokemon that everyone and their mum uses. Thats me. Im non-confomist. I use the underrated pokemon. but no fire starters fall into that category.
