        No just tied for second luckiest with Hoeen’s (first being KANTOOOO). Hoeen and Sinnoh werent so early that Game Fewak treated then like Pariahs and to make KANTOOOOO’s look better (hence when Johto’s is by far the most hated starter trio and be treated with anything other the contempt) but they weren’t so late, that KANTOOOOO-shilling over took the games.

        Hoeen was confirmed to be the second best starter trio when they got megas

    I feel like Infernape isn't well-liked, not because of anything wrong with its design but just because of continuing the fire/fighting trend.

          Imagine if Charizard didn’t have wings or a long neck and instead was just a bigger Charmeleon with accessories stapled onto it

              Why are Sinnoh fanboys so delusional?
              The obvious most loved starter trio will always be the Kanto starters, way more people know who they are than the other trios.

              Infernape is a Goku rip-off instead. Gen 4 fans seem to hate every generation before and after for some reason.

            Infernape isn't a bigger Monferno and I bet that big Charmeleon would still be popular so your argument fails on two counts.

              It goes from generic monkey on fire to generic monkey on fire so it effectively is.

    All three have great designs to the point that people always debate about their favorite.

    Cyndaquil and Totodile lines are great, but Chikorita is too feminine for most players.

    Samurott and Serperior are decent but Emboar, on top of being the third fire/fighting in a row, is bad.

    Greninja is great, the other two are disappointing. The fox is slightly better than the gras one.

    Grass owl is good, the other two are bad.

    All three are bad, the water type is the worst one.

      The frick are you taking about. Fans loves Sinnoh starters, Game constantly buffs the annd TPC shoved the. The only “ignored” starters are the Gen 2 starters due to Kanto DLC syndrome. And the only once actively hated by fans are Gen 5’s for some reason despite Gen5 being intentionally made to avoid being forgotten like Gen 2’s.
