Gee, starting off with a legendary Pokemon, how fair.

I'd like to start with a Hitmonchan, but if evolutions are out of the question, then a Heracross. See, no evolutions :D.

lol... I don't think it works that way Iveechan ; Starters seem to have to have a total of 3 different stage of evolution. And so in terms of fighting type, there's just Machop and only Machop for you ;p

Not much choice for me too... Spheal o.o;
I really like the whole Spheal family... except for Walrein because it evolves from a beloved seal to a freaky walrus (I hate walrus in real life too, and I love seal in real life...). Too bad no Chinchou, no Wooper, no Seel to choose o.o;

I want an Igglybuff for a start. It's a baby Pokemon which has 3 stages of evolution! =D
If I can't have Igglybuff I won't mind having a Pichu. Some of the cuter Pokemon that I like =P

BULBASAUR RULES! eh hem. And not just for its attacks, its just plain out the cutest, smartest, toughest, coolest, pokemon! If i lived in *Any city* i'd move to Pallet, just to get Bulbasaur.
But, otherwise. Hm, I've always wanted bulbasaur! lol. And the starters aren't always three-evolution pokemon. Misty started out with a staryu, and Brock an Onix. I think misty started off with staryu. Either Staryu or Goldeen, I've always assumed a staryu that evolved into Starmie. Hm, intesting! lol- off topic. Oh, Erika started off with a Gloom. And Max almost started with slakoth. Wait, does that have three evolutions? I think so. Hm.
There were those ones that started off with Nidorans (male and female). Thats all I can think of right now. Well, I'd start off with Bulbasaur. Other then that, I would literally accept ANY pokemon! I'd even imagined how I could love a goldeen if it was a pokemon i'd gotten. All pokemon would be nice! (all as in any, but all of them is okay to)

If we had to follow the three-evolution rule, I'd probably have to chose Larvitar or Dratini...if not, I would choose something like Dunsparce, Chimecho, or Murkrow...neglected stuff rules

Quote originally posted by Chairman Kaga's sig:
<< left PC and PROUD OF IT >>

I've come to my senses--PC makes me absolutely sick, I hate it. No, this isn't an attention-grab like some morons say it is, it's my stand against the degredation of this once-great place. It's clear to me that PC has been absolutely ruined, and I'll never be back. I'd like to thank the few of you who stand with me, especially people like Silent Tattsu and Frostweaver, as they have given me the strength to rise above this place. I need to get on with my life, especially after some of you have perverted and absolutely obliterated the old PC spirit. I'm not welcome here, and if I may say so, I don't care to be here. Just you wait, and PC will be dead. Not the forums themselves, as, at length, was stated in another topic, but the spirit of PC, more important than any individual member or group of members. It's fading fast, and I won't be around when it disappears, leaving an empty shell of a forum filled with members who delight in this new, ruinous order. So I have chosen to be brave and leave, even if it is unpopular or considered un-PC-ish. Well, as far as I'm concerned, I'm about as anti-PC as anyone can get right about now.
Nuff said. I don't need to explain, Kaga says it all. Please don't PM me, since i won't be here to check them. And while your at it stop giving Kaga bad rep points for his sig. One word i-m-m-a-t-u-r-e.

Zapdos? Absol? How fair.

Well if it were upto me I'd start out with a Altaria and if I could pick a legendary I'd pick Jirachi, but that's not really fair either.

I, myself, would definetely pick a dratini, hands down. It's final evolution, Dragonite, has been my favorite pokemon since I can remember, can you tell? It's just so graceful, gallant, and not bad of a pokemon all together. It has some decent stats, and a nice, all around movepool, enough for me anyways. I'm not hardcore player or netbattler, but I think Dragonite would be an awesome pokemon to have

I like Raichu! It's so cute. ; Anyways...

I would definately start out with a Pichu. I don't care about its stats or anything, lol. I want a Pikachu so much, and starting out with its super-cute pre-evolved form would not be a bad idea. Whoever created Pikachu is a genius, in my opinion. It's just the most adorable thing ever, and if you disagree, then I'll come hunt you down and attack you!

Not really, but don't say it, just incase.

Call me strange but I just find Quagsire to be so much cuter than Raichu o.o; (Pichu and Pikachu...? Umm... just as cute ;p)

Now if I can bend the rule... then I'll either take one of the following: Wooper, Seel, Chikorita, Chinchou, Lapras... la di la di la~~

Actually... I can use Horsea as well ^-^

*dream team of favorites: Articuno, Lapras, Quagsire, Dewgong, Lanturn, Kingdra*
*winning rate for dream team: 2:50, as there are times where those sheer colds will be lucky and work out in my favor XD;*

the last time I've seen a Raichu definitely surprised me... it went physical... o.o; It subbed on my switch and then focus punched next turn x_x; (Poor poor Zangoose!)

Raichu is just lacking speed and special attack compare to Jolteon, who has a better ability too (not to mention baton passing skill)

I'm glad you think so, lol. And Chikorita is just as cute! It's one of my favorites. I love the design; its color, the little leaf, its feet, it big, adorable eyes, everything!

Ooh, well, good point. Pikachu didn't seem to be very... good on Colloseum, in my opinion. (Since we're talking about this stuff.) Either that, or I'm just a bad Trainer. o_o; I couldn't even get one hit on the Easy level. The other Pokmon always KO'd it first. But, all three of those evolutions [Pichu, Pikachu, and Raichu] are still cute. They would be nice for little companions, maybe not so much for fighting, but just to have as a little pet, kind of how Togepi is to Misty. I would love to have a little baby one!

I'd like to see a miniature version of Deoxys.

I once played a Crystal Hack that when I got to the part where I got to choose a starter, there was a really long table with all 251 Pokemon to choose from! I picked Mareep.

and not to mention, almost all dragons are very weak to ice as well. Deoxy can't do crap against quick attacker. Blissey makes 1/3 of all Pokemon in the world useless, while Skarmory can also wipe out another 1/3. Armaldo destroys Ninjask, but Ninjask is still used quite commonly. Shedinja can get OHKO by a lot of stuff, but is still consider to be useful sometimes. Just because it's weak, doesn't mean it's not usable.

Quagsire is in fact one of the only 3 usable Pokemon in my team of favorites that is actually usable in the real game, being completely resistance to both electric and water is a great advantage. (the other being Lanturn and Kingdra, and the whole beam is screwed by a single Blissey or Regice, that is if sheer cold misses ; )

But if you teach a sableye skill swap and then throw out a shednija it will be invicble unless you have a pokemon that knows oder sleuth or foresight and a fighting move.

And out comes Skarmory and roar...

and that's gg for "invincible" sableye

Plus on top of that, I'm not sure if skill swap will even hit on Shedinja... (not sure about trace either since I never bothered to look up Shedinja's technical information when T-tar roams around NB for endless days)
