I've already started Black 2 and picked Oshawott but when my White 2 ships to me I'll be using Snivy.

I picked Oshawatt in Black, and I loved him. I think I'll either pick Snivy or Oshawatt when I can get Black 2.

I picked Snivy, but boxed him away as soon as I've got Growlithe. I had other Pokemon planned for my team.

I don't want to use a starter that I had a choice from in White. So I'll get it, trade it to my friend, since he needs all the good Pokemon he can get (He's honestly not very good at it).

He used Emboar in Black, so if he chooses Samurott/Serperior I'll choose Snivy/Oshawott for trading.

I might choose Oshawott, then trade him for an egg from my copy of Pokemon Black.

Not gonna use the starters, they suck. Instead i will probably get azuril and mareep in the beggining seen as though for some strange reason, gamefreak decided not to put pikachu in the game.

I had both Tepig and Oshawott in Pokemon White and I'm planning on doing the same thing in Black 2 and White 2.

I'v never had love for the little snake with a leaf-as-a-tail disorder.

Which of the three Unova starters will you pick this time around?
I will go with oshawott.
Is it the same as before?
Yes, I love water pokemon.
Why are you choosing it?
Basically, I find its stats to be more well rounded than the others. Also, I have always thought water pokemon were cooler.

I chose Snivy this time. I replaced her with some other 'mons I traded for. Using the same starters again is a bit boring for me.

When I play a Pokémon game, I usually go with the water-type Pokémon in the Japanese version and with the grass-type/fire-type in the Spanish version. But when I played Pokémon Black (going with Snivy) I found out that, despite it's the starter I like the most, it's not very useful.
This time, since I haven't tried B2W2 in Japanese, I will go with Oshawott.

I don't remember if I responded to this. I'll post anyway.

I'm getting both Black2 and White2 eventually, but Black2 will be my main game.
For Black2, I'm choosing Snivy because that's what I picked with White 1 and it ended up being really good.
Tepig for White2. I was gonna picked it the first time around cause I didn't like Snivy at first and I normally pick the Grass starter. I think I should of given it a chance , cause I ended up getting one in a trade and it's a good performer. So I decided to use it as a starter in one of my games.

I chose Tepig in my black version and I chose Oshawott in my White version. So I'm going for Snivy in black 2.

Well, this is my discovery, I think everyone has already known.

Each Pokemon game has a, hmm, particular pattern in starters. But this time in Black 2/White 2, it's a little bit different, and rather balanced than other games.

If you want to be a strong physical attacker, then Tepig will be you choice, cuz' Emboar is really strong with different physical moves available for it.

If you like not to contact with your opponent, that means you like special attacks, then Oshawott is great. Some strong special attacks can be even awesome if you give it to Samurott.

And finally, this is a little bit special. If you're neither a physical attacker nor a special attacker, and you wanna be balanced, Snivy will be your choice. Because learnable physical attack moves and special attack moves for it are similar, and so for Serperior.

The above stuffs are from my study of the three starters and previous generation games.

Emboar has the highest attack stat among the three when you EV train it's attack stat specifically. Maximum can be 379;

Samurott has the highest sp. attack stat, which is 346 in max;

Serperior has the same max value of attack and sp. attack, both are 273. Additionally it's the fastest among the three if you get the max speed stat of it.

Okay here are my own opinion: I'm a physical attacker, so I'll choose Tepig. There are less useful moves that can be learnt by Serperior; Samurott is great too, but I'll try that if I restart the game. Well, actually I won't have to choose a starter, because the three starters are the first three Pokemon I'll have in each Pokemon games. The three starters of each game will always be my favourite besides legendary Pokemon of that title. So... why can't I have all three? What's the meaning of playing games if you can't own what you want in the games, specially when you're able to get it. Well, those are just my own opinion. Please don't bomb me if you dislike it...=P

I'm sliding towards Oshawott because I have that habit of picking water types, and it was my starter back in BW.

If I play it anything like Black and White my starters will end up boxed pretty early on, however I'm thinking of using Oshawott hopefully until after the E4.

Snivy.

I never choose a grass starter. Never. But I'd like to try it out in the new games. When I restart the game, I tend to pick a different starter than my first gameplay which is going to have Snivy as my starter.

Oshawott. Has a good Att and Sp. Att. He's something like Snivy, but less speedy and more powerful with attacks.

Probably gonna pick Oshawott or Snivy. Most likely Snivy because I've never started off with him in any game and I don't see a lot of people starting off with it. (friends,YouTubers,etc)
