Do you like route 1 Pokemon ? or do you feel they should be more elemental than just plain old boring normal? would you prefer more extreme Pokemon in the begging and maybe only a few basic ones? just wondering what do to in my fan game...

I think it depends entirely on how strong you want your players to be in the early game. How powerful do you want the player to be when they meet their first major challenge, such as a Gym?

The main series games usually use the first few routes to give the player an idea of what kind of Pokémon they'll use against the first Gym, then expand on the different types and species from there.

If you want to skip the "introductory route" where you mostly meet Normal-types and go straight into building a diverse team, I think you need a good reason to do so. Everything in a game has a purpose, even the first few Pokémon the player will encounter.

Please put interesting pokemon in. Bonus points if they can be useful in the long run.
Who enjoys catching ratatas, pidgeys, spearows.... hoothoots... blargh so many generic useless pokemon.

Think about it this way: Route 1 is the first route in the game, right? Why not put your best foot forward and put interesting encounters in and such, rather than effectively making the same old boring route that everyone has played through a dozen times?

Who has fond memories of the first route in the games? (Well, I enjoyed route 1 the first time I played Red/Blue. But the first route in G/S... psh.....

I would prefer at least one interesting/cool Pokémon in the first couple of routes. I don't usually start catching Pokémon until after the second badge because of how boring they are.
