Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott are the three starters of the Unova region, which are grass, fire and water types. Which will you pick and why?

Remember, this thread isn't for discussion of the starters, it's just asking which one you'll pick ^_________^

I bought japanese pokemon black and chose Mijumaru/Oshawott as it was my second fave of the starters and i love the final form, for the english one i'm taking Tsutarja/Snivy and i think it's awesome and i'm hoping i can get a female one like Ash's in the anime =]

Are You An Espeon or Umbreon?
Your Result: Espeon
You prefer to be out in the sunlight, maybe harsh at times, but nevertheless popular. You might have a good voice, or awesome at something. You might be scared of the dark, and like white, or light colors.
Result Breakdown:
78% Espeon
60% Umbreon
Please help my pokemon =]

It's between Oshawott and Snivy, simply because I chose Tepig in Pokemon White (Japanese) however, I still might go for Tepig being my favourite starter. But I'll most probally go for Oshawott because it's got the best final evolution IMO.

Snivy, all hands down. Easily, the best out of the three with an elegant and smug design. :3

Totally choosing Snivy/Tsutarja. I love grass type starters and this will be the fourth time that I've used a grass-type starter.

Snivy, but no way I'll be calling him that, Smugleaf all the way XD

This works out will for me too, since two of my closest friends plan to choose the water and the other the fire. Kinda neat this gen worked out that we all I had different preferences for a change

I'm planning to use Oshawott my first time through Black/White. I would like to use Snivy at some point as well, whether it be on the third version or I just get both games

I'm picking Snivy, which is the first time that my favorite starter is the Grass one. After Charmander in gen 1 my favorite was the Water starter in gens 2-4. I think the other two are two of the worst starters. The only ones I dislike more are Chikorita and Chimchar. I do plan on trading for the other two, however.

I picked Oshawott in my JP White and my brother will pick Tepig, and that leaves me with Snivy. I also haven't picked a Grass-type starter for a long time.

I'm either going with Tepig or Oshawott. Snivy is too weak offensively.

I usually have a tendency to pick fire or water first before grass (the exception to this was Bulbasaur, I loved all Kanto starters)... but, I must admit that the grass starter looks sweet in these games. Snivy will be mine! :D

Since I don't plan on buying Black and White at the same time trading for all three is out of the question, so I'll be picking Snivy the first time I play through it.

Even though I've already played through White with Oshawott, I'll still be picking him in my English version, just because I still favor him and his evolutions over the others, with Snivy in second place.

I'm definitely going for Snivy. I'm always one for the grass types, anyway.
