make me realise something i never notice before. green come out in japan and has venosaur on the box. Then blue come out with blastoise and red had got charuzard. Pretty wild if you ask me
You misspelled Churrozard
It was pretty sweet tbh
But I'm not mentally ill
>A-ARE THOSE....EXTRA OPTIONAL POKEMON? ...IN A POKEMON GAME? AHHHHHHHHHH I'M LOSING MY MIND YOU CAN'T JUST GIVE THE PLAYER THE OPTION TO USE WELL DESIGNED POKEMON YOU'RE ONLY ALLOWED TO SPAM BIDOOF AND ZUBAT THE ENTIRE GAME!!!!
If only there were a way to have gift mons exist for the player without making them an unavoidable story interruption. Of course that's never been done before, and definitely not after XY either. This is definitely the only way to have gift pokemon in the game.
>SERIOUSLY?! ... I HAVE TO TAKE 3 MINUTES TO MEET THE POKEMON PROFESSOR... I CAN'T STAND THIS TIME WASTING! WHY ARE WE FORCED TO MEET CHARACTERS IN A VIDEO GAME... AND THEN HE GIVES US A POKEMON! IT TOOK ME A WHOLE 10 SECONDS TO MAKE MY SELSCTION, THAT'S TEN SECONDS THAT COULD'VE BEEN USED FLESHING OUT THE STORY AND BATTLE EXPERIENCE... BUT NO! HERE I AM TALKING TO THE PROFESSOR AND GETTING A NEW POKEMON! IN A POKEMON GAME! NO I CAN'T STAND IT
>don't think about how the game could've done this thing in a better way that had been done multiple times! Kalos did it, so it's good!
Unironically yes, when the game goes out of their way to make a spectacle out of giving you a kanto starter AND it's megastone for fucking free it just comes across as pandering (which is exactly what it is)
>POKEMON IN A POKEMON GAME? P-PANDERING!!!
>1 MINUTE CUTSCENE TO RECEIVE A POKEMON YOU CAN OPTIONALLY USE IS BAD
>10 MINUTE CUTSCENE TO DO A RETARDED MOVIE MINIGAME IS GOOD
>10 minute cutscene to do a movie minigame
Does not lead to a gift pokemon as far as I remember. A more accurate comparison would be the optional detour into a building for Deerling. Or the ability to use Island Scan and get Johto's starters in SM, or the ability to talk to a random NPC and buy Magikarp in Kanto.
Of course, none of those actual comparisons would benefit Kalos, so your reluctance is understandable.
the movie tutorial is worse but that doesnt mean op's pic isnt bad
Absolutely nobody ever denies that the pokestar studios tutorial was dogshit, but go ahead and keep deflecting
>Sperms are redditjak spammers
I'd rather mods spend all their time banning -Jaks than porn, ngl
I'm not even into pokelewds, I just hate wojaks
The people whining about wojaks/frogs are always the most annoying. Just report it and shut the fuck up. Make posts like these and you’re basically daring someone to soiduel you.
They're only as optional as your actual starter. Not to mention the Kalos starters are shit and the Kanto starters can Mega evolve. They're practically begging you to box your kalos starter and use the kanto one instead.
Also this is shortly after going through LITERALLY Viridian forest, and just before having to flute a sleeping Snorlax off a bridge.
>POKEMON GAME? GIVES ME A CHOICE OF WHICH POKEMON TO USE? AHHHHHH I’M LOSING MY MIND!!!
I love how far you have to go to generalize what XY does, you're practically melting it into a meaningless puddle so you can convince yourself this is something every pokemon game does.
You’re right, not every game gives you a good selection of Pokemon to use like XY, some of them like Shitnoh just do nothing but spam Geodude and Zubat at you the entire game.
This reminds of me of the time I had to take a detour throw diglett's cave
Who did you choose? For me it was bulbasaur.
This was pure kino
Charmander cause I was still a basic bitch
Greninja + Charizard Y
Charmander. I will never care about Venasaur/Blastoise they are just not interesting to me. I don't even like Charizard that much but he's the best of the 3.
>froakie as regular starter
>bulbasaur as Sycamore starter
Charizard of course.
Mega Charizard X is still pure sex today.
I chose Chespin and Squirtle. Though if it were today, I would probably choose Froakie and Bulbasaur
I just played and finished Pokemon Y fir the first time not long ago.
Cant hate the game, but the pacing and the free pokemon given is just baffling.
I expected the the free Kanto starter being given much later....but not almost at the start of the game. And free Lapias, Lucario, and Artyodactyl? WTF.
Went for Chespin, and then Charmander (was tempted for Squirtle and Bulbasaur is my favourite, but I went Grass Knight+Flying Dragon combo).
My first run was Chespin + Squirtle, but Chespin/Charmander Y was the best combo I had from later replays. Mega Venusaur isn't really that much fun, it just does exactly the same thing as normal Venusaur but tankier.
>Brian, Brian. Check it out, I turned our lawn into Viridian- I mean Santalune Forest!
Gun down the Professor
Take all three
>Kantocucks shoehorned their starters into the game with new forms and STILL got destroyed by Greninja in terms of popularity
Holy fuck this is embarrassing zardfags what happened HAHAHA
>got destroyed by Greninja
*after 3 straight years of shilling
*and putting the Kanto starters in a seperate poll
*and actually leaving only Kalos pokemon to actually compete with Greninja
>Muh separate poll
>Muh lack of basic reading comprehension
Greninja still got more votes kek
>it got more votes in its own completely separate pool that's less than half the size of charizard's pool that's filled with nothing but literal whos and sylveon
wow no shit retard
That's cope if I've ever seen one
>charizard, competing with 150 other pokemon, which includes multiple incredibly popular pokemon like pikachu, eevee, mewtwo, gengar, arcanine, snorlax, etc getting less votes than a pokemon that only had to compete with 71 other pokemon that are completely unknown to normies is somehow a cope
Youre missing the point. Everyone knows about the pools resulting in Greninjas win but no one gave a shit which shows how much people love the frog over muh classics
But no one is saying Greninja is not undeniably beloved. Only that it is easy to see why it own a poll and it is unlikely that it is more popular than the Kanto starters, specially since it's starter set has Delphox, who is not very popular, and Chesnaught, who is like, negative popular.
In a single pool i could see Greninja beating all Kanto starters except Charizard who's in a league of its own and probably why they set up the regional pools in the first place.
I love Greninja, but you’re high as fuck if you think it would beat any of the Kanto starters.
No one cares about Venusaur or Blastoise. Charizard is the only starters people care about.
How to tell someone didn’t have enough brain cells to even graduate high school
>still removed from swsh
>needed dlc to be in scvl
It's because Greninja had absolutely no competition from other Kalos Pokemon
Only retards actually think Greninja was the most popular Pokémon. Other anons have already posted the reasons, but
>poll separated by region/generation
>Kalos only has Greninja, no other Gen 6 Pokémon are meaningfully popular at all, meaning the vast majority of people would pick Greninja for the Gen 6 category. Not to mention there’s only like 70 to choose from.
>almost every Gen 1 Pokémon is popular, which splits the vote. Plus there’s 151 rather than 70-ish.
>Gen 1/Kanto is by far the most popular and well known generation, this is a well known fact
>Charizard won the Kanto poll, and if you adjust for proportional dex size, it beats Greninja before even considering the quality of alternate choices
I’m no Charizard shill, when it comes to Kanto starters I far prefer Bulbasaur. But it’s just the facts. You can’t just squish all the results together from separate regions because they were entirely separate polls. If you want a real answer, we need them to do another massive Pokémon of the Year poll through Google, but people have to choose from the whole National Dex. Chances are, Charizard would *probably* win (though Gengar, Pikachu, Eevee, and Bulbasaur would also be very strong candidates given the previous Kanto-only results).
NO. FREAKING. WAY.
MEWTWO!? WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOIN' HERE?!
They weren't confident in the Kalos starters, so they just straight up gave you early Kanto starter options to replace them if needed.
Greninja was already planned for Smash by that point, so that's not true.
>not blaziken for the spontaneous funny chicken man fight
god who the hell has time for frivolous scheduled voting?
Based, I want to use Charizard instead of Borixen
I liked it at first but honestly it's becomes more of a stain on gen 6 than anything else
XY was the first genwunner nostalgia pandering generation.
I like how it's canon that the starters are his leads
Those are the exact same two starters I chose. Based.
