    I'd like something along the lines of being asked a question before the game even begins:

    "So, what color do you like the most?"

    Based on your choice, the game would start with your mother scolding you because your Pokemon has made a mess of the living room, again. When you go out to see it, there's your Starter Pokemon waiting amidst debris. Obviously, choosing Green would mean Chespin would be standing there and so on and so on for Fennekin and Froakie.

    That way it's starting a new journey, but your character already has a bond with this little creature to add a deeper emotional connection. Perhaps, later on in the story there's a chance your Starter is taken, leaving the main character distraught because that was his/her best friend.
