    Am I surprised to see Scorbunny first in the poll?
    No, not at all
    Am I surprised to see the water one so close to the fire one?
    A bit, yes...

    None, they all fucking suck.
    We got yet ANOTHER stupid simian for starter? Seriously?
    Goddamnit, I swear Game Freak tends to have some sort of zoophilia fetish towards monkeys at times.

    Am I missing something? I only count one previous monkey starter, and he was a fire Pokemon. If there's a majority among starters, it seems to be lizards/amphibians.

    For what it's worth, I don't hate these designs at all.

    But while watching the trailer and up until seeing the character art, the starters all looked so similar that I literally thought they decided this time to do slight elemental variations of the same pokemon (Eevee evolution-style).

    I hope that hey let us play with & feed our pokemon. The one thing that I hated in let's Go was that they restricted the interactions to our starters only & that we couldn't evolve them. My Raichu was getting really jealous & cursing my Pikachu out

    I swear I don't hold any strong feelings about this so I won't argue lol, but here's where I'm coming from at least:

    upload_2019-3-2_20-39-12.png

    Their anatomical shape seems to be the same: big round head, some sort of 'sprout' feature on top, small body, standing on two feet.

    And I guess if you want to compare previous starters:

    I'd say the most similar from these are probably Torchic, Piplup, and maybe Oshawatt too? (Even then, they're all from different gen.)
    You can just look at the head/necks of these guys and see quite a bit of variety.

    You can definitely see a clearer difference in the official artwork of the new starters, for what it's worth.

    Good point.

    They are a little more similar I think you're right.

    Honestly at this point I think they were legitimately based on the Powerpuff girls.

    Every gen so far has had at least one starter I liked. Until this gen.

    Probably the monkey but I'll box it if I don't like the evos either.
