I'm not so much interested in what the players look like, because chances are that we'll end up having to be either one anyway. I'm more interested in the starters I get to pick from! The fire one had better be awesome, too! I don't want to have to go through the game with a fiery pill bug or something.

[FONT="Franklin Gothic Medium"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="Navy"]Citric, please try to avoid posting just images in your posts, as it doesn't necessarily lead to discussion. Thanks!:animesmil

But, I agree with Chibi. I haven't really liked any of the Fire starters in R/S/E or D/P/Pt . Blaziken and Infernape just couldn't match the cool factor of Typholosion or Charizard.I found myself gravitating towards Sceptile and Empoleon more.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Eh, I actually though Blaziken was pretty awesome. It was a decent fighting type available early in the game and its final form looked kinda cool. Infernape was a massive fail for me, though. Both for being a carbon copy of the previous Gen's fire starter and for being the first starter to cave in to the notion that monkeys are the only way to make anything cool.

Luckily, Torterra was win dipped in chocolate, so it's all good.[/FONT]

I think it'd be awesome if they broke the convention of always having the starters be a Grass, Fire, and Water type; although I do like me Grass types. But I highly doubt they'll do that.

[FONT="Microsoft Sans Serif"][SIZE="1"]Just checked Serebii and Bulbapedia; these are legit -- the B&W starters. Well, as much as they're revealing at this point, anyway. I myself am unsure of what to make of them...the left immediately made me think of Cyndaquil, and the top looks like some sort of pig/bunny thing.[/SIZE][/FONT]

Silhouettes are such a tease. I wanna see the whole thing. Especially 'cause I can't help thinking how weird they look right now.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]The far right one looks like it might be some kind of otter. If this is the case, I know which one I'll be choosing unless one of the other two is so absurdly awesome that the full scope of its majesty cannot be contained in a mere shadowed image.[/FONT]

The Fire starter had better be awesome. Right now they all look pretty weird... But then, I'm sure a lot of the starters look pretty weird if you used a silhouette.

[COLOR="Red"]I'm just hoping the top one isn't the Grass starter, because if so, then it seems like it's just a redesigned Turtwig >>;[/COLOR]

If these are official, it will not end well. They definitely are not the shadows of the starters posted, so I don't think they're official.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]It's a real shame that's probably a fake. That fire scorpion would be amazing. Bonus points if it was part bug type, that would make a decent counter to Psychic types early in the game.

It would also be one of the few, proud members on the "Bug-Type Pokémon worth half a damn" Club, up there with Heracross, Scyther/Scizor, Vespiquen and Yanmega.[/FONT]

As for the magazine pic, I hope it's fake. But the green raccoon thing would probably win my heart without fail. I love raccoons.

[FONT="Microsoft Sans Serif"][SIZE="1"]I'm a little eh on the starters, although this might be the first Gen where I pick a grass starter over a fire starter from the get-go. And LOVE LOVE LOVE the female PC design, at least what we can see of it.[/SIZE][/FONT]

Honesty these new pokemon look ridiculous I mean really. I the water one looks like a bidoof and a piplup had a child. The Grass one is just eh, but I will say that pig one looks real cool cause he shoots fire.

Have some detailed info:

[quote] * The region's name is "Isshu" (イッシュ) and is located very far away. One of its cities is shown in the top left of the scan.
[B]
* The main characters are older than ever before; they are not children.[/B]

* From a separate source, the Pokemon's names might be Tsutaaja (ツタージャ), Pokabu (ポカブ), and Mijumaru (ミジュマル). "Tsuta" means "ivy" and "ja" is one way of saying the word "snake." "Bu" relates to "pig." "Mijuku" means "immature" and "maru" means "round" or "ball." Again, these are not the confirmed names yet. The magazine scan in this story does not mention their names.

* The city shown in the scan is Hiun City.

* Zoroark's ability is called Illusion (イリュージョン). The ability allows it to take on the appearance of other Pokemon.

* Two new attacks are Trickery (イカサマ), which outputs damage depending on the opposing Pokemon's stats, and Claw Sharpen (つめとぎ), which raises your Attack and Accuracy.

* If you trade over the shiny Entei, Suicune, or Raikou from the the Ruler of Illusions: Zoroark movie ticket preorders, you can battle and capture a Level 25 Zoroark. During the battle, the Monster Fox Pokemon will take on the appearance of the Pokemon you traded over, and at several points it will revert to its original form (probably when weak). When it does, you can attempt to capture it.[/quote]

YES YES YES

[SIZE="1"]How can we be absolutely sure those are official and real? I personally find this design to be much more probable:

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"]These are actually both great designs. Other than the very, very top of the female Trainer's hair, I really can't find anything to complain about for either of them. I actually kinda like the female's shorts, weird as they are. They remind me of cutoffs.

Also, hooray! A female trainer I can find attractive without raising some awkward questions about myself!

As for the starters, I'm a little disappointed, but none of them seem to be Chimchar-bad, so I'm okay with them. I take back what I said about the otter, though. Its nose is going to distract me. I'm gonna have to see their final evolutions before making a choice.

EDIT: I SEE RAILROAD TRACKS. Though I'm gonna have to call it on Game Freak if that's the new method of transportation, we already had a train.

EDIT2: [URL="http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/5946/1273671405617.png"][COLOR="Blue"][U]Language Warning[/U][/COLOR][/URL]. Poor lil' otter-thing. ;_;[/FONT]

[SIZE="1"]I can see myself picking the otter more than I can the other two. A fire pig just doesn't sit very well with me, and I never ever ever go with the grass-type. I've also gone with the water type in every single game before hand; my first ever Pokemon was Squirtle at age 7 or 8.

Of course I could just end up doing what I did in Platinum and leaving my starter in the box after a decent amount of time. [/SIZE]

[COLOR="Red"]I want this game. NOW. Even if the Grass starter is a little weird-looking. And the fact that the characters are a bit older this time and not "lol we look like teenagers but we're actually ten lololol" is great. I'm kind of hoping this means there will be a bit deeper plot than the usual Become-Champion-and-defeat-an-evil-organization-along-the-way route. Not that I want a HUGEOMFGGAMEOFTHEYEAR plot, but something a bit deeper than usual would be nice.

Also, Pokemon Special Black/White, plz.

Edit: I shall now be referring to the Grass starter as Otacon, the Fire starter as Fire Pig/Hamlet/Peony, and the Water Starter as Edokun. No on can change my mind on this, even when the official names have been announced.[/COLOR]

I actually kind of like the fire pig. Makes me think of walking BBQ. The otter just seems a little clown-ish to me, and the grass one will be giving me nightmares...

I'm really interested in this game now... When do we get it?!:animedepr
