I hope the roddent will be a fire rodent if they pull a Gen II on us...and that Minun,Plusle, Pachirisu, and/or Emoga get evolutions.
I think that's because a main character has owned Pacharisu and Emolga, and it would get confusing.

I'm late but I agree with this. You might see another of either in a Trainer or Gym battle in the series, or as a story element (or in rare cases as another occurrence in a later generation, such as the two different Bulbasaur and Ash brought his to meet May's before it went back to Oak's Lab).

Well Clefairy was originally the mascot of the series before Pichu's evolution stole it's spot...the Pika family are spotlight thieves. Also the pattern of not appearing the next generation was post generation 2, the fact that it was refered to as Pikablu pre release and that it got a pre evolution the next generation make it more of a Pikaclone than the rest...

Anyways a fire rodent (that isn't Cyndaquil...) will be cool and cute :3

I wouldn't mind if we got another electric rodent. Some things are just tradition nowadays.

Marill was the Gen 2 Pikachu clone. Them being available in the next series has little to do with it as well. Marill was owned by a Main Character (at some point all of the clones were owned by a Main character or were part of their story).

Pichu isn't a clone. Its the pre-evolution to Pikachu therefore is not a clone of Pikachu.

As for 6th Generation's Pikachu Clone....I kinda hope for a Grass type. While we are on the topic of clones, I wonder what the new regional rodent will be based off of, and what the regional bird will be.

If we do have a pikachu clone I'd like to see one more like Marill in that it's not electric type.

A psychic or fighting type pikachu clone would be pretty neat.

I would like to see the 6th gen. rodent be based on an Alpine Marmot. They're common rodents found around Europe. Maybe start normal and evolve into a ground type.

I see the 6th gen. Bird being based off a Heron or Flamingo. Haha we haven't had a flamingo-based Pokemon yet, am I correct? That would be interesting. I really want to see Pokemon based on an albatross! The bird with the largest wing span among birds. That would be epic!!!

TBH it could be seen as a clone for that generation, and tied to Pikachu in evolution to complete the line. Was there another Electric type like Pikachu that generation?

Ohh an Albatross, or a white Heron would be awesome. If not then maybe a Robin, that fakemon we had earlier in the year made me want one even more.

Yeah, that fakemon looked sooo good! It would have been the Murkrow of the 6th gen. I was really hoping it was real, so that I can see the evolution

Me too, hopefully we'll get something even better than that...opposed to another Pidove, which, while still kind of cool, wasn't the best regional bird imo.

I'm fine with the common European rat though perhaps they'll use a lesser known rodent.
What about another Raccoon?

Or you could go with the more obviously named groundhog. ;)

But chances are probably that they'll make another electric rodent. Maybe part electric and part something else, but probably electric nonetheless.

So long as it isn't based off of another squirrel or share any resemblance to Pachirisu and Emolga.

True, enough squirrels, now let's get that electric hamster that looks strangely a lot like those two squirrels from the last two generations, and the Hoenn rabbit twins, and Pikachu.

I think they should just have Girafig evolve and explain it by saying how it evolved to reach it's favorite leaves whose trees had grown taller over time forcing them to evolve.

A Platypus would be awesome, Water/Poison I imagine. Thus far only to lines have that combo, and the last one has a single member, and was introduced back in generation II...

By that logic, it would evolve shortly after birth if it can't have its first meal of leaves.

Not necessarily, because for about the first four to six months baby giraffes drink milk from their mothers. I do think there would need to be a better reasoning for Girafarig to evolve though if it were to get an evolution this generation, because it's not exactly a solid way of evolution given there are loopholes to this concept. Plus, what's to stop it from eating grass?

Well perhaps it evolves by location. And once in this savanah like area it starts to desire to grow to reach the tasty looking leaves, almost like how Bagon wanted to fly.

Personally I feel Starly and Pidove are the worst regional birds. I hope the regional bird for the 6th gen isn't fat and black/grey.

Taillow is my favourite regional bird. If the upcoming games don't have a regional bird of their own I hope they use Taillow/Swellow as the stand in.

Starly isn't all that bad throughout D/P/Pt, especially since it gets Close Combat as a Staraptor and learns some strong attacks.

I hope the new regional bird is useful throughout the game like Starly is.

I want the regional bird to have an awesome typing. Such as Fighting/Flying (not a staraptor copy however) or maybe even Dark/Flying just to give it that cool look.

What types do you guys want the reg. bird to be? Besides just normal/flying.

Normal/flying is okay for me, but maybe ground/flying for the first bird? I guess it could be found near a cave or something :3
