Yellow had a different starter and was still Gen I
Different doesn't mean new. Yellow had Pikachu as a starter, but all the rest of Gen I starters were available quite soon after playing a bit. Since this is gen V, they could basically change the starters, but making new ones is a different matter..
Youre right, different doesn't mean new, but "new starters" can mean different
pokemon from the same gen set making them "new starters". Seems like youre trying to split hairs just to troll. You knew what I meant.
Lucifer666 was clearly talking about brand new, non-Gen V Pokémon and not existing, Gen V Pokémon.
I am aware of what lucifer said, as I quoted it in my first post. After he says "my bad" he goes on to talk about snivy and oshawott as starters and having 2 of each of them, but having something different(not just a new gen) would be nice to have. Having different starters in this sense would not imply any sort of new gen as was the case with yellow, which I was just pointing out.
Sorry, if i tried to look at it in a less superficial way. Maybe Luci was still caught up in a new gen idea when he says this, but it seems more like at that point, he forgoes the new lineup and just wants something different to start with aside from snivy and oshawott.(and tepig)
