Why were the Gen 3 starters so...boring?

>Hey, you can get a Gecko, a Salamander or a Chicken

So? Gen XY was a squirrel, fox and a frog.

because blazikenfags are furfags, memedkipfags are memers and sceptilefags have huge victim complex

They're all pretty attractive to me

Pick one and only one.

Blaziken fans are honest about pokemon being virtua cockfighting, so they use Blaziken and make it more cockfight.

I found him guys. The legendary "Shitty taste man"
>>
>>24619261
Mudkip is an axolotl. Charmander is a salamander. Well, at least you tried, op.

At least they're better than the Gen l starters.

Axolotls are salamanders you tard.

>Not liking monkey, penguin,turtle
Confirmed faggot
>>
>>24619261
mudkip isn't a salamander. it's a mudskipper, a fish
>>
>>24619439
but sinnoh are pretty good actually. with torterra and empoleon
>>
>>24619520
It's both but it is based more on the Axolotl. Still, it rustles my jimmies to hear it called a salamander when its name is derived entirely from the fish side.

I feel like the Kalos starters will be sleeper hits

>Kanto that low

Hahaha what the fuck
>>
>>24619603
too young to understand how good kanto starters were
>>
>>24619261
They are all great and one of the best starter combos.

Try not being a nostalgiafag. Mudkip's not even a salamander.

>Hey, you can get a Gecko, a Salamander or a Chicken
You can say the same for any starter set.

>POWERGAP

fix'd
>>
>>24619535
i don't see the axolotl theme, to be honest. i mean mega swampert even gets the huge arms, the same as mudskippers have big pectoral fins but small inguinal fins
>>
>>24619606
they were all horrible lmao
only venusaur was decent thanks to better bulk than vileplume and victreebel
>>
>>24619603
Based on final evolutions. First and middle stages for Kanto are some of the best, but until MZard-Y none of the final forms were appealing at all

>>24619606
>I'm 27 so I'm an oldfag!

Fuck off faggot.

>>24619442
Reading all of this, you can't deny Totodile is master race.

Greninja -> fucks everything in existence
>>
>>24619276
I'm sure it will mean nothing tell you, but I like Mudkip and specially Swampert because of the design. Also, the buffed mega is sweet too.
>>
>>24619439
You don't dig monarchy, doll? Design wise is the best starter easy.

In which way m8? Blaziken is ranked higher than Greninja in competitive battling.
>>
>>24621521
>implying froakie isn't a frog
>>
>>24621548
I've always quite liked Samurott and Serperior. Emboar is just as shit as everyone says, though.
>>
Gen 3 is fine. Gen 2 is the only "boring" one.
>>
>>24619261

Why were the Gen 2 starters so...boring?

>Hey, you can get a pear, a crocodile or an echidna
>>
As trios

Kalos
Hoenn
Kanto
Sinnoh
Unova
Johto

Based on a mix of how well their designs mesh together and the success of any central thematics
>>
>>24621935
Feraligatr line consistently voted favorite starter. Typhlosion line well liked.

But yeah meganium line is pretty boring.
>>
>>24619271
Chespin/Harimaron is a hedgehog

Its even in the name
>>
>>24619334
Johto and Unova are undoubtedly the shittiest. Unova more so because the general consensus, throughout the hype of BW was that they were ugly fucks. When their final evos were shown in that box leak, literally everyone was calling fake as if the evos were a menance to society.
>>
>>24621935
To this day I still don't know what the hell Chikorita or its line is supposed to be

Those long necked dinosaurs?
>>
>>24621935
nigger gen2 is one of the most liked series of starters. Their typing sucks tho senpai

>>24621472
>charmander
>4x rock weakness
no

>nigger gen2 is one of the most liked series of starters.
Where? I barely even see discussion about anything but Feraligatr
>>
>>24622066
yeh
>>
>>24621911

I don't think Emboar is really a bad design on its own.

The real problems were:

1. It was the third Fire/Fighting starter in a row.
2. It being part Fighting took away Samurott's chance to be Water/Fighting.
>>
>>24619261
>Gen 1
Reptile, Reptile or Reptile
>>
>>24619334
1. Hoenn
-all 3 have great designs and are usuable in battle

2. kanto
-not first because of venasaur

3. Shinnoh
-decent designs all around, torterra is dead weight

4. Kalos
-decent designs, lack battle potential aside from greninja

5. Jhoto
-bland designs, low usefulness in battle

6. Unova
-Emboar's design is ok, otherwise shit designs and shit in battle

It's the fucking Saffron Bun on its belly that ruins it.

Fixed Emboar
>>
>>24623228
the biggest problem with emboar is how its "clothes" dont blend into the rest of its fur

it makes it look extremely unnatural
>>
I always felt that generation 1 and 3 had the best fucking starters by far.

I mean if I was going to name the 6 best starters in no order...it would be every starter from generation 1 +3.

Couldn't these niggers have spaced them out?
>>
>>24619261
You can make anything sound boring if your super reductive like that, the chicken kickboxes, the gecko is a dinosaur/tree hybrid and mudkip isn't even a salamander :/

For example the strongest pokemon are a dragon, a weird alien cat thing or a goat

>talking shit about best starter
>>
>>24623228
the biggest problem with emboar is how it's a dumbass bipedal pig with no actual head

There's no way to fix it without shifting it's mass somehow. If it rested on it's arms and leant forward a bit it would probably be fine.
>>
Can we all agree that Empoleon is the most beastly starter in terms of an in-game playthrough? Nothing in Sinnoh can stand against Surf/Flash Cannon/Ice Beam/Grass Knot
>>
>>24619334
Except for your pro tip, that's actually a perfect list.
