So you're going to erase your saved game with your starter in the save file without trading it out first. Would you hesitate?

Nah. I erased my save game with a level 96 Torterra and didn't even care. And even if I have to do it again... *opens save file saved to the computer*

This completely depends on what starter I'd been using and how I'd bonded with it throughout the game. Some starter Pokémon I grow incredibly attached to, for example my darling Servine from Black (I can't bring myself to evolve it ;;), and these kinds of Pokémon I transfer to every new game I start. I have 4 or 5 of these starters saved up from over the games in my current save on Black, so yes, I would hesitate and think very carefully about which Pokémon to save before restarting.

Yes, for sure. My bro has a couple Pokemon on his Black file, which he's gonna trade over to me eventually. The Pokes include Empoleon, Sceptile, and an Infernape. There are a lot more that aren't starters, but I don't think its appropriate to list them here. The one time something like this happened it broke my heart when I lost my game with my level 93 Empoleon....

Yes,i would. It's like throwing away good memories,wouldn't you like to keep them? It also depends if you have a great bond with them. I would trade all my soul silver pokemon,including my starter,to another game. Again, it really depends on the bond you have. I probably wouldn't do the same thing with my infernape.

Yes!!! YES!!! omg YES! I hesitate before I erase ANYTHING!! Anyway, yeah, I do bond a lot, especially with my darling Swampert who is now lost ;( {Can't find diamond where she is}. My sister, however, doesn't hesitate, noooo, she just wipes the game... D: Even her Typhlosian. So yeah, I would hesitate.

I think I would never consider erasing it in the first place. Memories, eh?

OK, speaking of erasure...

You turn on your game, and find out that your entire save file and backup were corrupt. How would you feel, knowing that your starter probably just got nuked?

I don't think I can delete my save ever.
My Serperior is worth 10 saves.

Really though, I can't delete my save, I would lose Serperior (lv.100)

When you've come so far, I think no one would even dare to wipe out the save file. There's quite a sentimental value to everything that you've done, even if it's just a bunch of data in the end. Level 100 quite possibly means the pinnacle, but with BW and B2W2 allowing EV stat gains at that point, there's nothing stopping you from getting the most out of your Serperior. xD

And given the much-needed moveset infusion in B2W2, I bet he's going to make it a whole lot more. xD

I don't know anything about trade so i would erase my saved game only if i want to play the game again.

Got any starter ideas? I think, for once, we might want to let people talk about what they really want!


Feel free to also post images.

I was thinking maybe a water/dragon starter would be nice, I don't think a starter has ever been a dragon type mix before so that would be cool.

A Water/Dragon? Hmm... Gee, I wonder how long has it been the last time we have had any dragons in the starter now, don't we? I do have a suspicion that the type won't be exactly as you like, though, for balance purposes.

I'm not sure whether something generic would suffice in Pokemon... Chances are they'll take a lot of concessions... they'll do things their own way, when it comes to "what's a dragon".

Well i'm going to assume i'm officially in the club ;-)

Well. i'm sure it might have some balance issues but i'm sure game freak would do something about that. =P I assume this because they have done things in the past that make no sense, such as giving NPCs pokemon that are higher level then when they evolve at to make the game more balanced.

I'm sure that if they were to go ahead with something similar, there'd be some tweaks to the starters.

New topic:

What starter would you want to change type?

I don't believe it would be balanced if you changed any of the types, I did some thinking/research and it seems that no other combination of Pokemon types would be able to be balanced, because the way they have it now is basically like Rock, Paper, Scissors, one weakness, and one strength against the other starter types. The only way they could change one of the types is if they added another starter. If they added another starter it would probably be Ice...? I mean it would look like this if you were to chart it would look a bit like this




Thank You MS Paint <3

Let's see

Water is SE against Fire, which in turn is SE against both Ice and Grass (!), and where Ice is SE against Grass, and Grass is SE against Water.

We have a severe balance problem in here, tilting it in favour of Fire, and gimping the Turtwig in process.

Oh I didn't realize that. Um, the only other type I could think of that would fit would be Bug instead of Grass, but this is just off the top of my head because my battery died and it is hard to do reasearch on the Wii browser. (I suck at remembering type counters and such)

But other than that, you could have Flying, Electric, Ground. Wait yeah I'm pretty sure that would work! But I see no reason in them changing the types of the starters. More to the point of the topic, I would like an Electric type starter, but most flying types are boring to me, and I doubt they would look cute enough for starter criteria (yes I know starter's don't have to be cute) Pidgey, Swoobat (ewww swoobat) pidove, the only intresting, nice looking Flying type Pokemon that I have seen, would either be sigilyph or braviary, but even then, sigilyph isn't cute, and braviary is still kinda meh, but a rufflet would be nice, the only thing is that it only has 2 evolutions.

So it's a pretty tuff topic, and I cannot see Gamefreak changing the starter types anytime soon but it would be intresting if they did Flying, Electric, Ground (or is it Rock that is SE?)

I've always wondered what would happen if all starters had a shared type.

I think if the starter typing combination were to change, the entire type chart would have to be redone from scratch, and that opens a whole can of worms on pretty much everyone, with the competitive scene hit hardest.

If the whole type chart was changed, it would kinda ruin a part of Pokémon. It's already based on what's logical, like fire burns grass, softens steal and melts ice, water conducts electricity, so Electric types are obviously strong against Water, and so forth. Changing the way that goes they would have to bend logic here, as well as all we had accustomed ourselves to would be completely turned around, leaving us to learn the new order, which would most like leave a negative effect on returning Pokémon fans.

Nothing good would really come out of changing any of the starter typings, since everything is in balance as it is right now, and changing anything wouldn't really have a positive outcome. Changing them all to share the same typing could work, but it would also change the feel of how our choice of starter affects the game and how we'll fare in it, and it'd be especially annoying if they were all weak against the first gym leader. So to answer the question:

What starter would you want to change type?

None.

I'm thinking of actually implementing some changes with regards to club membership and how sign-ups are handled. THIS IS IMPORTANT for new members - everyone should read this. Full stop. I hope that by doing this, I can cut down on both club management and generic sign-up posts that do absolutely nothing.

The member list system, as well as the points shop will be removed.


This is very important because it has been too much of a hassle regarding handling sign-ups, both valid and generic. It cut downs on management and also should allow members to not bother with anything other than the meat of the club - that is, the topic itself.

As a result of the list removal, it should be reminded that all members get to claim every single starter available, and the starter list will not be removed. Shiny or not, special or not, anything goes, really.

No sign-up form is required to be a member of the club.


Yup, you read that right: you no longer need to sign up to start participating in the club! This is meant as a measure to cut down on generic sign up posts that I've been seeing a lot lately. I think, if members are allowed to go straight to the topic, it'd be easier for everyone to get things going, and perhaps keep the place alive. If you're interested, feel free to immediately reply - if you've got a post in the club, you're implied to be a member.

The sign-up form is removed starting today.

Now, onto a new beginning, and a new topic!
New topic!

Let's ignore typing for now - pick any preexisting non-starter Pokemon, and which three sets would you make into starters? Give reasons why (it's optional)



Meta topic:

What do you think of the revised club membership handling?

That is an easy one, Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour. They would be perfect starters =D
This was discussed in a speculation thread about what the starters would have been if they made grey version instead of b/w2, and we thought that was a good idea.

I'd reckon that they'd have a hard time within the game unless the game got specifically tweaked for it - stats are not quite on par with the starters, if I recall correctly.

what about Bellsprout, Poliwag and Litwick?
they correspond with a type chain, the classic fire, water, grass and all three require a stone to reach their final third form (or trade with Kings Rock). It's not as unbalanced as you'd think on first sight though especially with how beefed up Victreebel became with gen IV.
Granted Litwick reaches its second stage a lot later than the other two but a little modding could sort that out.
