    I'd like to see something like that for the player, and just as soon as the player walks to where his Pokémon is, then it shows a silhouette of some shape (where you choose as either Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie) and then taking it with you. And that it would say something that you've raised this Pokémon since it was an egg.

    Wouldn't that be interesting? I know it kind of sounds familiar to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, but I think that would be a great concept.
    Definitely something along the lines of this!
    Maybe right at the beginning of the game when Professor X asks for your gender and name, he/ she also asks what your favourite type is out of Grass, Fire and Water. You then wake up in your bed and head over to your rival's house with your egg, when on the way it hatches. If you chose Grass at the beginning, Chespin would hatch, Fire, Fennekin etc.
    This way you would feel even more close to your Pokemon considering you raised them from an egg. I know I always feel closer to them if I do.
    The only problem I can see in this beginning from Level 1. They would have to nerf the first route or just have some sequence where a couple of weeks pass and your Pokemon is level 5. Actually the latter sounds awesome.

    ...I wish for this.

      I would like to see them do something different this time around and I have a slight feeling that they will. Well I hope so anyways. Either way I don't mind I just want the game so bad! ..

        I'd like it to just be quick and simple and let me go on my way.

        (With a mode that lets me skip those annoying tutorials, I've been playing Pokemon for 15ish years, I know how to catch Pokemon.)

          If this game's going to be in 3D it could be intresting to see it as a mini-game

          You walk into the professors lab and see it destroyed, and the three starters are just running around. You have to like catch up to which ever starter you want and your neighbor/rival could get the other one and the professor (or other rival if we're going B2/W2 Style) could get the final

          That could be rather challenging, but quite good at the same time. How about it being that the Pokémon are still inside their Poké Balls, and then you choose whichever one you'd like?

          Or maybe you get to choose at the start and then later the lab gets broken into and two Poké Balls are stolen, and only one that the Professor still has had kept it safe for you and you obtain it.

            I'd like someone other than the professor giving you your Pokémon. Like you work for a farmer, and you have to do a mini-game with a generic Pokémon (The Gen VI Pidgey/Rattata) and once you've completed it, he lets you chose one of his Pokémon that he bred, and in the back of the farm, there is a room with multiple starters. These starters levels vary from 1-5, and you can choose any of them. Once you have your starter, you go home and the Professor is there. They reveal that they were there to ask you to go on a journey, and it's here where they give you your Pokédex.

            That'd make it a lot harder for you if you chose a level 1, though. If they were newly hatched on the farm, maaaybe but I think if they were all equal would make more sense-

            Actually that gives me an idea. What if they gave us more than one starter? What could the reasoning for this be in terms of what the professor telling you?

              I was thinking the way you had to catch those farfetched in Hg/Ss, they could just be moving aroung the lab. Obviously the noise part of it wouldnt be there But it'd be a cool way to introduce everyone to the new starters

              The most unique and interesting way was choosing it to save the professor in Gen III, so I would vastly prefer something like that again. I don't like the whole "Oh you're preparing for a journey! Go get your first Pokémon!!" I think it would be pretty cool if you have to choose it to save someone in the wild, and the professor notices and decides to send you on an adventure because he/she deems you to be exceptional and full of potential to be great. He/she talks to your mother and gets her permission, and then you begin your adventure.

                This kinda breaks the formula but i think it would be cool if the daycare center had pokemon left behind so you either get an egg or recently hatched pokemon from them.

                Like the egg in Johto? I'd like to get a free egg again like that, just to introduce us to the egg system (well, new players at least!) But issue is then it wouldn't be the actual starters and could be ~anything~. If it's the starters by default then just skip that imo and just get to a way that doesn't involve hatching. :x

                  Hm, I haven't really thought about this.
                  It doesn't really matter to me unless it's at least somewhat unique.
                  But the idea of catching your starter or raising it from an egg like your rival did in B/W2 seems somewhat interesting.

                    Not to sound boring or anything, but I kinda just like to be able to pick my starter and be done with it xD Intros kinda bore me, I wanna just get on with it right away.

                    Though it would be interesting if, like others mentioned, you already had your starter from the beginning, like you grew up with it, or the farm idea.

                      I think, Your PARENTS yes mum AND dad should be some sort of breeders, or maybe famous trainers that give you an egg for your birthday, and I don't care if this is off topic. But we need another jerk rival! the nice ones are boring! Bring back blue and silver! . Maybe have something to do with your rival when getting your starter, maybe he steals your egg you got, and when you finally get it back it hatches and you fight your rival .. I don't know, BRING BACK THE JERK

                      Blend it into the tutorial bits of the beginning. The professor becomes more hands-on, tells you to come with them into the wild, and based on what you choose in the beginning in a trivia thing or something, your starter becomes the first Pokemon you caught. But it would be the only starter in the wild you can get, as its a rare Pokemon that appeared from nowhere or something. I kinda liked how Hugh got his starter in an unconventional way from an egg, and I would like something similar for the PC as well.

                        Same as it's always been, you receive it from the professor directly, from an assistant, or from their bag lying on the ground

                          I'd like to see it as something completely new, Perhaps you recieve it as a gift from your father (as you never have one in any game) or perhaps you find it in the wild, it wind up in a box in front of your house or something. Either way I think it will be awesome.

                          We actually did have a father in RSE. It's the only game where a father figure is made present, and is a gym leader no less.

                          The idea of having a box in front of our house is a bit much like the gift box we receive in our room from Prof. Juniper in Black and White though.

                            Your parents are in charge of a breeding center and they send you on a mission to deliver some eggs to the professor, after that the professor analyses the eggs, they hatch and then as a thank you gift he lets you keep one. Then he tells you you need to deliver the other to other trainers

                              I want to receive a Pokemon in a dire situation- to fend off the Pokemon that are attacking you and your friend! (Who also picks up a Pokemon.)
                              I don't know, I want a somewhat "exciting" opening.

                                A lot of these wanted startings I have read say you go down and your mother does so and so. I never really paid much attention to it until now, but you never have your father in the beginning.. or the game at all, besides rse where he is a gym leader. I think the newest game should start with the characters father playing a role. Make him the professor even. Being a pokemon professor is his expectation for you, but you want to go your own way. After much nagging to drop the books and go out on a journey he finally lets you, thus granting you starter of choice.

                                  I don't care too much but I hope for a few things:

                                  1. Not like Black and White in the sense that you can't check the nature until you finish those two battles and it takes forever. (I don't mind the battles but I wish you could check your Pokemon out before being thrown into 2 battles... It took forever to get the right nature on my starter...)

                                  2. Received in a way that the animation will be really awesome. Because 3D needs to be awesome.

                                  You totally just gave me an idea with this scenario.

                                  What if we're a young assistant working with the Professor. We pick up his package at his house and bring it back to him at the lab. There's a new young trainer that's supposed to be coming in to pick up their first Pokémon that day (they'll end up becoming one of of rivals maybe; perhaps we could've take the starter they wanted). However, as it turns out the starters seem to like us, and as a reward the professor lets us choose one to begin our own journey and help him with the PokéDex.

                                  I'll cheers to that.
