That's exactly the same starters I'll be picking. Coincidental or not?
I was going to take Cyndaquil for the Johto starter, but I hate how bland its "flame-less" model looks in 6th Gen, plus I don't use Chikorita a lot compared to the others so I figured I'd give the little green dinosaur a go again.
Chimchar's my fave Sinnoh starter, despite its model having such a hilarious animation. It does at least always do the job though, as a fast powerful attacker. I love Piplup but if I took the penguin I'd have too many Water-types.
That's much better than it's starting moveset in the originals which only had Powdered Snow as an attack. At least I can make use of all of it's forms plus various Weather Ball attacks. Once i get TMs though I will probably just use an all out offensive set like: Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball
I plan to! I haven't actually started my game yet though as I'm waiting on Tom to get home so we can start it at the same time, but yes I can't wait to use it! probably going to soft reset for a modest one since it's stats are kinda bad and every little help I can get will be nice.
