I relied on Popplio on both of my Sun and Moon playthrough.
Currently on Windvisible until early November.

    Rowlet but then I traded him out when he got old for a Meganium because I'm mean.

        Popplio. I was already planning on choosing it from the beginning, since everyone else hated it so much. The fact that it evolved into one of my favorite final forms made me love it more

          Popplio for me. I just couldn't imagine not having a Mermaid looking Pokemon. Of course, I SRed for a Female, and ended up luckily getting one with pretty desirable stats.

              I picked Litten the first time then went back and played with Rowlet.

                I picked litten with ultra sun and rowlet with ultra Moon. Worked out perfectly for me. My party has issues though, stats aren't quite there yet but working on better Pokemon to put in my party by breeding and everything is training.

                I went with Rowlet in Sun, and while it was easily my favorite of the three, I wanted to choose something different for Ultra Moon, so I picked Litten.

                  Gen 7 starters are my favorite starters so far, and that makes it hard for me to choose a favorite because I love 'em all. They're the best.

                  Hmmm, I guess I have to go with Popplio because its final evolution is my favorite by an inch.
                  Liepard is a good pokemon and don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

                    Had to go with my boi Litten! This time around I named him Jubei after the character from Blazblue.

                      Went with Rowlet as I always choose the Grass type starter, and I was actually kinda disappointed by how strong Decidueye was! If I were to play through Sun/Moon again, I'd probably go with Popplio

                        I started with Rowlett on Pokemon Sun, Popplio on Ultra Sun, and Litten on Ultra Moon.

                        Of the three starters gameplay wise, I would have to go with Popplio. Primarina was wrecking a good amount of opposing Pokemon alone. I suppose it helped she got Icy Wind as a level up move early on in USUM, and the starter I chose had Hidden Power [GROUND].

                          first playthrough of Sun/Moon- Rowlet

                          2nd- Litten

                          3rd- Popplio

                          USUM- Rowlet

                          4th- Litten
                          My favorite starter is Rowlet, but the one that I found was better in the long run was Popplio

                              Lots of love for my main birb Rowlett!

                              I chose Rowlett purely based on a friends recommendation. I also think he has the best looking final evolution of the three.

                              Picked Litten on my first playthrough of Sun. When the starters were announced i thought i would pick rowlet because of that awesome decidueye design. i also loved incineroar the same way. especially that Fire/Dark typing. i leaned on to litten a bit more since im a sucker for fire types

                              Honestly, every time I see Rowlet I gush over its absurd cuteness, so naturally it was my first pick!
                              The things we take for granted...
                              They're really the most essential things.

                              . . . And they're precious.

                                Always Popplio. It's great. It also ends up being the most defensive of the 3, and that's generally what I'm about!

                                  I used Rowlet for Moon and Litten for Sun.
                                  Since it was easier to reset for a female Popplio in USUM which I was so glad about I used mine in my UltraMoon.

                                  I guess everyone might have their own answer.
                                  But for me...I want the strongest rival for myself

                                    I chose Rowlet. Not only it looks better, but it being a flying type gives me advantages when I fight Hala.

                                      Let's see, when I played Sun, I chose Rowlett (Final evolution looks the coolest), on pokemon Moon I chose Litten, most powerful of them all (And a cool signature move) and finally for Ultra Sun I picked Poplio, although I can barely stand it. It's pretty weak and slow. I was 7 levels above a pokemon and it still wasn't faster. (And no the other pokemon wasn't using a priority move)
                                      Aren't all the Pokemon technically birds?
