In a unique way -- that's how I'd like to receive my starter. I'm sure they'll think of something... but honestly, we'll probably be so excited that won't give a crap on how we get it because we'll just want to play.

Perhaps you could walk downstairs and your mother is like, "Come here the news is on!" And it could work out that a wild pokemon is terrorizing the town. Maybe like in Emerald you choose which one it is at your mother's prompting, like with the Latis. Then you go out and catch with a borrowed 'insert common pokemon here'.

I don't really care how I receive the starter. I'm fine with just heading into the lab and picking the starter or receiving it at as gift.

Anything else seems overly dramatic for such an early point in the game.

I like the idea of going to a farm or somewhere and you catch your own starter.

I'd like for there to be a scenario in which the three starters have ran off in separate directions and depending on what direction you take, you battle it and develop a bond with it thus enabling it to join your team? Idkkk

I think the idea of the lab attack and the three starters escaping their Pokeballs and running off on three different paths as described by Aerilyn and the others quite a great way to begin your journey :D Perhaps if they did follow that idea, the player would just have to search around a small area and not do too many tasks as the players usually just want to get on with the adventure in my opinion. However.. I don't think GF would make the process of getting your starter vary too much from the way it already is. Whatever it is, surprise me!

You wake up, and it's the first day of your journey(as your mom excitedly tells you.) You go to the lab and there are three pokeballs on a desk and a very professor-ish looking dude standing by the table. You talk to the pokeballs and it just says: It's a pokeball, used for catching pokemon!

You then talk to the professor, who tells you to choose one. After choosing, there is a small cutscene in which the pokeball opens...but nothing comes out! The professor realizes that the three pokeballs are fake and comments about a dude in black clothing with a 'R' on his chest being in here earlier. (The description is whatever the evil team looks like.) He then leaves to go after the grunt. Nothing happens until you leave the hometown and see the professor and grunt in tall grass. If you try to leave, the professor begs for help. You enter the tall grass and the grunt laughs at you since you don't have any pokemon. He sends out whichever starter you chose earlier...but it doesn't listen to him! The grunt hurts it, and the professor notes that the particular pokemon is very stubborn and won't listen to a trainer unless he or she has earned its respect. The grunt says something like "I'll teach it respect!"

Then, you get in the way and the grunt hits you(aka, shoving you backwards because it's a pokemon game.) The pokemon is touched and it joins your side, and the first battle begins. Once the battle has been won, the grunt flees. The professor thanks you and notes that the pokemon has taken a liking to you. Back at the lab, he is so touched by your display of bravey by defending the pokemon that he wants you to fill out an advanced device: the PokeDex. Of course you accept, nickname the pokemon, and then he gives you five more pokeballs for new allies. You leave the lab, and your journey begins for real.

I hope we'll have to grab them from someone rather than have the professor give it straight up. It was wayy to normal.

Or perhaps the wild Pokemon causing terror on the town is the actual STARTER? Wouldn't that be amusing that if it sees you it forms an instant bond with you and is calmed. And which starter it is, is determined by a phrase you answer the professor with, regarding how the weather is. Either raining, sunny, or "nothing in particular". :3

Allow to quote one of my posts from a thread in "Pokémon Gaming Central" that I think also answers this thread.

Your grandparents run a PokéFarm in the country. This could where the main game begins as well as the intro mini adventure takes place at a younger age. Picking your starter Pokémon as an egg about to hatch at the start of the mini adventure. The Pokémon could become your friend in a "growing up" vacation cut scene.
Some event draws you back to the farm in your mid to late teens to start the game's main story.

Hmmm I like some of that a lot, especially the picking the starter from an egg. Or perhaps saving the egg from something that is trying to attack it? And the clause as to which it is... well, three are being attacked and you have to pick/hatch one to help save the other two before eaten, that's kind of awesome. :3

People say that was clichéd and typical, but we haven't seen that since Gen 2 (HGSS in Gen 4 kinda count but since they were remakes of an original adventure, I'm excluding them).
I'd like to see that as well. I miss the simplicity of starting your Pokémon journey by going to the Professor's Lab and getting your starter, like your supposed to.

I like the idea of catching my starter in the wild, but it seems like to make it consistent, the starters would have to be available for capture in that area throughout the game, making it easy to obtain all starters. Which, in my opinion, is no fun. Perhaps they could be inconsistent though, they did it with catching your Pikachu in Yellow version.

Yeah, I'd like to see this return.

It would bring back fun memories and I didn't like how starters were received in recent games.

I'd like something along the lines of being asked a question before the game even begins:

"So, what color do you like the most?"
>Green
>Red
>Blue

Based on your choice, the game would start with your mother scolding you because your Pokemon has made a mess of the living room, again. When you go out to see it, there's your Starter Pokemon waiting amidst debris. Obviously, choosing Green would mean Chespin would be standing there and so on and so on for Fennekin and Froakie.

That way it's starting a new journey, but your character already has a bond with this little creature to add a deeper emotional connection. Perhaps, later on in the story there's a chance your Starter is taken, leaving the main character distraught because that was his/her best friend.

I'm more into the classic way to get your starter (the professor tells you to choose a Pokemon at the lab), and just go with it. xD However, you know in Pokemon Yellow, Professor Oak caught the Pikachu and eventually gave it to the player? I'd love to see the player actually catch the starter and keep it as their own Pokemon. It'll combine the starter introduction, AND the Pokeball tutorial all in one. :D

I would like to be tagging along with the professor on some "expedition" and you remind him where he is going again (Lake, Forest, or Mountain) and that determines the starter, who you see injured while on the expedition, you both bring it to the lab and he says it likes you or something and you keep it.

Then, your rival busts into your house saying his mom/dad bought him a pokemon (the one your weak to) This will help push the whole (your choosen, your rival is not) approach.

I do definitely hope the wandering the overworld and leveling a little before fighting the rival from Gen II/III return. For when they give you the starter and then "Oh hi rival let's fight," with the exception of Gen I, where you get a potion, the battle feels like a coin flip on whether or not you win.

As for how you get the starters, I just hope it's not tacky like it was in Gen IV. I didn't really like the "Oh hi, we're being attacked, let's 'borrow' these Pokemon."

I'd like to meet my starter in some sort of predicament in which we work together to get out of. Better bonding and what not. Like say the pokeballs fell down a hill into some kinda forest and you had to go find 'em. Of which the first pokemon you found was your partner.

i agree with giradialkia. I miss those times when you could just walk up to a table and pick your starter. But i also want X and Y to be unique. so my idea is this: during the intro scene, you take a quiz to determine your personality. Then, based on the results of that quiz, you get Froakie, Fennekin, or Chespin. The quiz would ask you questions like "Do you like swimming?", where if you answered "Yes", there was a chance you would get Froakie. yes, i know that sounds like PMD, but it's a good idea, right?

yeah, probably. oh, i also noticed you had Toph from Avatar: TLA in your Sig. that's AWESOME. I've been a HUGE ATLA fan since, like, forever. ANYWAY, i totally agree with you. when X and Y come out, i bet not ONE store will have it in stock. it's gonna just be bought 'till there's none left. then what about those who DIDN'T pre-order, like me? we're SOL (so outta luck). guess i'll just have to wait for Christmas...
