    I actually like Tsutaja's evos, and Mijumaru's evos, i don't like Pokabu's at all, the second one looks silly, and the third reminds me of Magmortar.

      Pokabu. I'll make sure to name him Pignition.

        As much as I'd love to have a Pokabu nicknamed Lechon, I think I'll choose Tsutaja. I've never started with the grass starter during my first playthrough of a Pokemon game, so I thought Gen V would be a good time to start seeing as I rather like Tsutaja's design.

        That is, unless I see a few more Pokemon I can make food-based nicknames from that I can place in my team. If that's the case, bye bye Tsutaja, hello Pokabu ._.

          I am so glad that finally made the fire starter bulky. For the past 4 generations the fire starter has been the fastest type out of the 3. But after I saw Mijumarus final evo I was pretty socked. That thing looks pretty beast, but for my choice as a starter I have to pick Tsutaja. I have a thing for the grass starters :]

            For me, I usually tend to pick the Water starter, so I might pick Mijumaru. I also like to have bulky starters, so I might pick Pokabu. And Tsutaja is just plain cool. I really won't know until the games come out. =3=

                I'm getting Tsutaja even though his final evo (which I hope is fake) looks really stupid, imo. Miju's final evo looks like a lapras.

                  I surely will! It's going into my sig once I'm done submitting this.

                  I think I might have to disagree w/ you on Miju's final though.

                    Why? Mijumaru was shown moving around like a samurai in a best wishes preview and it's evolution has similar Samurai clothing.

                      Because another guy was talking about Miju in the fake pokemon thread, and he brought up a good point w/ how Miju's final is based off of a large otter in South America. I'll hunt the post down.
                      I mean maybe it does have samurai influences, but that's not what I originally saw in it.

                          true, but I am still failing to see the samurai part. Is it the padding on it? Miju's 2nd evo sort of has that samurai look to it, but the final to me at first looked like a skinny walrein mixed w/ some pokemon.

                          The grass starter is total win. AND I LOVE THE FINAL EVO!!!! I just wish the middle evo could be..... more like the final evo and more different to the first evo. It just looks too similar to the first evo, and the third, though has it's physical features, doesn't look like the middle evo evolves into it. It seems like a pokemon belongs between middle evo and forth evo. Confuse anyone?

                          EDIT: The water type starter's final evo may be a giant otter, most likely, but it doesn't really look like one. It may be a fusion of different animals too. Look at it's horn!

                              Re: Mijumaru's evo - who saw that coming?! What a shock. Honestly. It looks like a cross between Salamence and Dialga, and I really like it.

                              I'm so disappointed in Pokabu's evolution though. It could have been so, SO much better. I mean, it's not awful - although the middle evolution truly is - but it's just a real wasted opportunity. Tsutaja's evo is ok, but nothing special. I'm just frustrated because in Generation IV the Fire starter was my least favourite (based on final evolutions) and I was hoping for a better one this time seeing as Fire is my favourite type.

                              And what's with all those yellowy squiggles on Pokabu's evolutions? They're exactly the same as Infernape's wrist and knee guards, and they were pretty much the exact reason I didn't like Infernape's design.

                                i agree fire beginners after gen3, are complete fail.

                                i love the grass starters final evo, im hoping the predicted type is true (grass/dragon)

                                and the water beginner, i think the colours on it are HORRIBLE, it has such potentional... yet the colours just ruin it for me, it looks like an over complicated lapras evo wanna be IMO

                                i just hope the types i heard were true:
                                grass/dragon
                                fire/dark
                                water/fighting

                                if theres another fire/fighting ill blow my top, its a horrible type combo, its already be used twice, first on Blaziken (pure win) then on that worthless Blaziken rip off infernape, we need something new, or at least something different, hell i dont care if its pure fire, just DONT put fighting again.

                                grass dragon fits, if its poison... just no, please no.
                                pure grass, grass/dragon, grass/ice (yes its random) just not poison,or ground.

                                the water beginner needs to be water/fighting, water/rock, or just pure water

                                if their really gonna make this a kanto redo, they should make the it grass/dragon, pure fire, and water/fighting IMO
                                that way the fire beginner isnt worthless, just hideous, and the other 2 are more unique,& interesting to use.

But after I saw Mijumarus final evo I was pretty socked. That thing looks pretty beast, but for my choice as a starter I have to pick Tsutaja. I have a thing for the grass starters :]
                                thats not entirely true

                                Treecko was fastest in gen3.

                                and now Tsutarja is fastest in gen5, so it seems any reptilian grass type is the fastest :D

                                turtles& dinos dont count in my eyes

                                my guesses for starter types:
                                Tsutarja= grass, grass/poison, grass/ground
                                Pokabu= fire, fire/ground
                                Mijumaru= water, water/fighting, water/ice

                                I'm so disappointed in Pokabu's evolution though. It could have been so, SO much better. I mean, it's not awful - although the middle evolution truly is - but it's just a real wasted opportunity. Tsutaja's evo is ok, but nothing special. I'm just frustrated because in Generation IV the Fire starter was my least favourite (based on final evolutions) and I was hoping for a better one this time seeing as Fire is my favourite type.

                                And what's with all those yellowy squiggles on Pokabu's evolutions? They're exactly the same as Infernape's wrist and knee guards, and they were pretty much the exact reason I didn't like Infernape's design.
                                I just think the water starter's middle evo is the most completely fail starter I have ever seen in my life. It is so darn ugly!! The final evo though is pretty good the only problem is that it doesn't have any noticeable physical characteristics that resemble Mijimaru (I think I spelled it wrong) other than it's colour.

                                I think its typing will be Water/Ice. The horn could be used to break through Ice maybe.

                                Grass starter- Grass and dragon or Grass and Poison. It is a little hard to tell.

                                The Fire starter- Fire and Fighting or Fire and Dark. Most likely maybe Fire and Dark because of it's black colouring.

                                  Yeah I agree. But water fighting or water rock imo because that giant thing on its head could be used to crush rocks, and the padding for protection.

                                    I have finally decided, I will get Pokabu! I'll name it... Sir Mix-a-Lot! Or if that name is too long, I'll just go with Mixer. I'm so silly. =w=

                                      Ugh, I really wasn't too keen on Mijimaru (yeah, I know I can't spell) but it's grown on me and I have to say I like its evolutions. The other two I liked at the start, but on Pokabu's evolutions I just shan't comment.Tsutaja = amazing. Gotta pick that snake.

                                      Tsutarja's final evo is the sexiest yet!! But I kind of agree with you on all the other starter's. They just aren't like the first 4 gens.

                                      ...the starter evolutions still aren't confirmed officially yet, so there's still a chance they'll change, and if they're fake, you'll probably have a different choice on starters then. :)

                                        I must say I'm not completely convinced the starter evo's are real. Especially the third stage. I mean, they just don't look like the traditional Pokémon. I have seen some fan sprites of Mijamaru evo and Grass-snake-evo, and they looked fine then. However, the Gigasnake and Fourleggednarwhalething are just plain ugly.

                                        And if they are official designs, maybe it's only bèta art, and they changed appearance drastically (I hope!) in the meantime.
