Samurott is my favorite, but since I chose him in Black, I'll be going with Tepig for Black 2! Tepig was actually my first choice when the BW starters were first revealed, but when the evolutions came out I didn't like them and so went with Oshawott when I got the game. Now that it's been a while, Emboar has grown on me and I want to use him now.

Choosing Oshawott, because it is my favorite starter from unova. Also, samurott is an awesome swordsman.

I've become bored of the starters from this generation. When I play White or Black again I just use another Pokemon as my starter. I'll probably wait for the list of available Pokemon and see which is closer. Praying to god that Growlithe is available pre-first gym.

Well since I already chose Oshawott, and he's pretty much irreplacable, I'll choose something different this time, perhaps Tepig, that animated Trailer is a pretty big influence.

Too bad that the starters stay the same. I don't like any of them for some strange reason I'll box it. But who knows, maybe I'll choose Snivy? I've never had him as a starter before.

Tepig or Oshawott, because I've played them before and they were great. I tried Snivy and it just wasn't cutting it for me.

Well since the Gyms aren't exactly the same I dunno who I'll use when I play Usagi-chan. Gunna maybe try for a Female Snivy cause my one and only attempt with it ended up so horrible with the first three gyms that I stopped using Snivy which was the first time I have aver replaced my starter in any Pokemon game.

Tepig is out of the question.
Precisely my reason. Also, I'm about to play White and I'll chose Tepig so Oshawott's the only other one that I wouldn't have raised.

Snivy. Best final evolution in my opinion. I don't particularly like the final forms of the other two :/

Well the starters for this region unfortunately are already boring for me. They don't have the same appeal as all of the others. However, since there is nothing I can do about it, and since I chose Oshawott in Black and Tepig in White, I'll choose Snivy in Black 2.

I used Oshawott in my White so I'll use Snivy in one of the games and Tepig in the other. It all really depends on what the rest of my team ends up being really. At least there are more water types this time.

Serperior is very cool, but its movepool is abysmal (plus I already used it in Black), so
I'll be picking Oshawott this time around (water starters are what's up!).

I have a soft spot for Serperior (I want a male and name it Kanda, after my starter in Black, which inspired my beloved Serperior I'm using in an OCT on dA), but I kind of want to see what Emboar and Samurott are made off. : > I used to think they were horrible, but I kind of grew to like their designs more.

I chose Oshawott in the poll, but I will use Oshawott in one and Tepig in the other.

Snivy just won't cut it for me.

Definitely Tepig, he's so hardcore I used him on my first play through, then snivy and Oshawott on the second and when I got a copy of White. Out of all of these I'm going for Tepig, he's been my favorite all along ;)

Finished the FR/LG monotype a loooooong time ago. Not that anyone cares though.

I'm definitely going with Oshawott once again.

Tepig is okay, but come on GameFreak, another Fire/Fighting final evolution for the Fire type starter? This is really starting to get old.

When I first saw Snivy I thought it was pretty cool, especially with how it looked like it had a "Yeah I'm awesome, what of it?" attitude. Servine was eh, it just became a bit of a bigger Snivy. Then with Serperior it was just a giant grass snake. Bleh.

Samurott just looks awesome. It's a bit overdone just like most of the other Unova Pokemon. All the armor and the swords it can use. Samurott needs a signature move that utilizes the swords. Razor Shell is okay, but I'm thinking more of a 90-120 base power Fighting type move. Which brings me to that, why the heck wasn't Samurott Water/Fighting? His (or her) design is perfect for Water/Fighting, but no we had to have Emboar, the pig/boar version of the Fighting monkey and chicken (Infernape and Blaziken, respectively).

Oops, definitely just turned that into a mini-rant.

I'm going with Snivy this time around in Black 2, and I don't think I need to explain why. His awesomeness is explanation enough.
