How would that work though?

"Oh he's no longer hurt super-effectively by flying-type moves."

I'll say this though...three fire/fighting types that evolve from starters in a row has gotten really played out.

Yeah, I was going to refer to this image- the fact that the Unova starters are lined up like that, and the fact that Serperior is in the video fighting Kyurem leads me to believe that we'll just get the same starters. And the fact that the new Professor is introduced leads me to believe that we'll just get the starters from him- however, in the trailer, I think I recall seeing that professor walk up to a podium thing and meet the player, so if he's not your conventional Pokemon professor, perhaps Professor Juniper will be travelling around and you'll get one from her? I dunno.

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

Well in the programmer's view the starter is just something to avoid you from breaking the game (and missingno) so I really wouldn't mind what the starter is as long as it's balanced between the three and we can all agree that it's not Bidoof.

And that we get it in a really shiny and creative way.

The starters will most likely be the same, I mean the starters are standing right in front of the players in one of the scans or was that the trailer...either way they are in the same position starters are usually in.

All the more reason to have another crack at it! 4 in a row!

Also, new quote about the professor from today's information.

"Frind, Foe, a mysterious character!" -So he is going to be important somehow..........

This is my guess. I used Tepig in Black and Snivy in White, and I'd like to give Oshawott a fair shot as well. I'll probably make a starterless run in the other game and just choose one based on how it affects the plot/what Pokemon the rival has.
Ten bucks says the original dragon is Puff the Magic Dragon.

We're still in the 5th Generation, so it would be logical to have the same Unova starters. :s & Pokémon Smash confirmed that the starters will remain the same. :p

If we do get them from the professor, there better be a different reason as to why he would give us a free Pokémon. Seems like it would fit his description especially if he is evil. I wouldn't like him to hand us a starter and be like "HERE. START YOUR WONDERFUL GRAND JOURNEY YOUNG ONE!!!!!".

if you look on pokemon.com it says we will still have the same starters as usual and that the new professor is bianca. you can tell becasue bianca always stayed with professor juniper throughout the game and after the end of the game. and cheren is a gym leader.
