    Based only on what we've seen, Grookey. Because he's a grass monkey, a funky monkey. I want to see evolutions for each of them though.

    Baby Trix Rabbit.
    Bootleg Mudkip.
    Neglected Grass Type mkVIII.

    I’m hoping their evolutions are cool, because I’m not really excited for any of the three.

    I'll probably go with Sobble on this one (though I do like Scorbunny's design as well). The reason for this being because I love water type Pokemon and I already went with grass and fire in Moon and Ultra Moon respectively. I sometimes tend to go with the designs I like the most instead of my favorite typings, such as my choice with Turtwig in Diamond back then.

    Too soon. It's not worth asking that question right now, since what you'll see most of the game will be the final evolution, which hasn't been shown yet.

    Based on the trailer looks like Grookey could end up being a Grass/Psychic, If you look closely after he finished batting his batten, The grass regrows immediately.
    I'm definitely going after Grookey.
    Unless Scorbunny ends up being literally amazing looking.

    I usually go with the fire starter, but monkeys are more important, so probably Grookey.

    Likely the bunny, cause it reminds me a lot of Chespin. Sobble is a close second.

    The Monkey has a bird beak and a stick through his hair.
    This doesn't really make any sense so, of course, that's why I must choose him. :ninja:

    Don't cut yourself on all that edge, bro. :ha:

    Seriously though, the bar can't still be that high, we've had lamp Pokemon and ice cream cone Pokemon. I prefer when they at least use the animal kingdom for inspiration.

    Seeing how it has a patch on its nose, my money is on fire fighting...

    If the final is nice I'm going with the water starter for once, the previous gen had a freaking ugly final form water, so I skipped that one.

    Grookey looks nice, and I haven't chosen the grass starter since Turtwig and 4th gen.

    Wait nvm, forgot Rowlet.

    Sobble because water types mostly have decent stats and it is cute.

    The Trix rabbit, then box it, trade over a Mew from LGE, and Physic everything in the game.
