The Sea Otter Pokémon

Hello, I'm Nichole. A twenty-something, female, Australian, suffering autism/social issues and proud member
of this forum since 2011. Been a childhood fan of Pokemon since I was only 7, and I picked up
my first Pokemon game when I was 11. Pretty much have played every game since then.

Joined PC in March 2011. Became a Community Supporter in October 2012, started off initially as
a Tier 4, since jumped to Tier 5 or as we know them these days, Crystal Tier.
Now I am suddenly a Platinum Tier for whatever reason. Ex Showdown regular, and currently active Tumblr blogger.

Aside from Pokemon, I have a love for cute anime girls, plushies, music and anything that gives
me a good laugh. This blog will mainly be a showcase of stuff I am loving right now, some personal
reviews and ramblings, music, funny stuff, life updates and things going around PC.

These new starters...

I don't know how much I can say now but who thinks they are the cutest bunch I've seen since a long time now?

Popplio (the Water-type) is the one I've officially sold on, with its derpy but somehow creative design that looks like it'll separate itself from the other seals. Oshawott was said to look like a clown and he turned out adorable with awesome evolutions so I have hope in this little guy.

Rowlet (the Grass-type) seems to be the new Snivy in that it's winning over fans already, and Snivy was the last popular upon first reveal Grass starter. Having an additional Flying-type gives me a Bulbasaur call-back as well, but 4x Ice weakness means he'll be undesirable to the competitive community.

Litten (the Fire-type) is quite the sinister-looking starter, especially for the cute first stage. Stripes definitely shows we got our Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac pattern, and that dark colour suggests he'll become a Dark-type. I'd love another Dark/Fire since we still only have Houndour and Houndoom for that.

Anyways, I am damn hyped for Alola! If things go well it could become my new fave region since Unova.

    I really like all the starters so far, although I'm slightly leaning towards Rowlet. I don't think the 4X necessarily indicates it will be bad in competitive though, after all dragon/flying Pokemon have done well over the years. It's definitely not a bonus though.
