    *best looking starter of this gen. my mistake.

    Emboar is the best looking final evolution of this gen. A huge flaming bipedal boar, sure beats the pants off a metrosexual looking snake and a derpy sea lion.

    Eric's right. A crazy boar thing would have been great. I've actually been having a very easy time with Tepig as my starter. I've been destroying.

    Hmm...Although I enjoy the final form, I'm not exactly sure on which starter I will pick this gen. I don't like any of their intermediate or starting forms, but they all have boss final forms. I suppose that I will stick with the pattern that I started with Ruby/Sapphire and go with the Grass starter.

    I have a fondness for pig pokemon, so this will be my first non-grass starter, but I have to say I'm not really fond of his final form. I wanted a wicked-massive razorback boar with massive tusks and flames everywhere, not a fat guy with a pig nose.

    Due to this being the lack of originality in its typing, this will be the first gen I dont pick the fire pokemon

    I never go fire starters but Tepig is the most adorable of them and grows up so beefy looking. SO BEEFY LOOKING. I don't even care that it looks like Magmortar, it's the best looking of them all.

    She is going to be my first fire starter ever. I usually just pick the waters, but it kinda looks weird this time around....

    I sorta like Tepig's final form. I really like big, tough looking pokemon, and he seems to fit the bill better than the other starters.
