Pokemon Black and White will be released in less than a week. You are about to embark on a new journey to the Unova Region, where new Pokemon and new adventures await. And as usual, you will need to pick your first Pokemon to begin this journey.

So, who will it be?

Snivy- the Grass Snake Pokemon

Tepig- the Fire Pig Pokemon

I know snivey will probably be the most popular but I'm going with tepig...reminds me of pumba off the lion king.

Oshawott seems like the best starter to breeze through the game, since he can learn very good moves quite early. Snivy would be great if the game I am playing is long-term, though.

Thanks for reading.

Going for Tepig for multiple reasons:
1) I traditionally pick the Fire-type starters (save for DPP, where I chose Piplup)
2) Me, my sister, and our friend always make a complete trio (we each pick a different starter)
3) It is my favorite aesthetically aside from Snivy, but I get the feeling there are going to be A LOT of Snivy's out there.

Tepig. Not because of the element or hating any of the rest but because I love pigs <3

I said Oshawatt, but I honestly don't see myself using him much in the game. I also may pick tepid and use him till I can get a Darmitanian.

In reality, the starters are some of my least favorite pokemon of this Gen, but I do love probably 95% of them.

In my mind no starter set will beat the Johto series set, those guys were awesome.

For Black, I'm choosing Oshawott, while in White, Snivy.

Gotta go with the fire-starter, Tepig. Always use the fire starters for my first run through a new game.

I voted for Oshawott. LOL Snivy was so popular months ago, but he's getting owned in a Pe2K popularity contest. HAHA!!!!

I don't think I can validly vote, considering I'm gonna be ditching my starter by the third gym.

Solid Snivy.
Though, gameplay wise, the chain is kind of useless without the Dream World ability.

Snivy, because i've rarely ever gone with a grass starter, and his evos are pretty b-a

Snivy is awesome, pure and simple. His evolutions look wonderful and I've always been a big fan of Grass types.

VERY tough call between Snivy and Tepig, but I went with Tepig. Snivy's evolutions are a little funky, though I can't say Tepig's evolutions are that far behind with the funkiness.

^This. And besides, I started with Tepig when I first played Black, and I'm gonna choose Tepig and trade over the others. :3

I also like Tepig because it reminds me of a sort of mix between Spoink and Flaaffy ^.^

I'm going to vote for Snivy. I started liking that Pokémon from the first time I saw a sprite of it. xD But of course, Snivy's not the only starter I like, I like Tepig too. It's cute. It'll be the Pokémon I'm gonna choose, if I ever restart the game. xD

Continuing the Grass tradition with Snivy!

Seems like everyone likes the starters pretty evenly...

I'm gonna go with Oshawott. Samurott is a beast.

Tepig, because I find him the most interesting. I've already given all 3 a test drive, and I found Tepig the most enjoyable to use.

Oshawott. I'd have to admit, I was really annoyed by this Pokemon when I first saw it. It looked so damn stupid. My perception was changed when I saw its final evolution (which I thought should have been of a Water/Dragon typing), and Oshawott just slowly grew on me.

I'm not sure yet. Will vote when I get hold of the games.

Usually I start with fire types but I may go with Oshawott this time in white, as water pokemon can be pretty damn powerful. Snivy in Black before sending it over to white, only because I love his design, will be intersting to see how he performs as my experience with Grass types is that they always feel a bit weak, but then that's possibly because I'm not training them properly :-D

I definitely have to go with Snivy. I have always chosen grass types for the first version I've played of each generation and that's not changing now.

I chose Tsutarja. Gotta love that stuck up snake whose sprite just screams, "Yeah, you know I am better than you." xDDD

I did want to get Oshawatt for a while just because I thought Dailenki looked pretty awesome, but Snivy's even awesome...r :P

Hmm, curious how Oshawott is currently in the lead... back when it was leaked everyone made fun of the poor wittle guy xD

Still, I iz going with da reptile ;D

I'm gonna start with Tepig just so I can name it "Bacon."

In consideration for all the gyms of Unova, the best starters would be Oshawott or Tepig. Personally whenever I'll acquire a Gen V game I'll be taking Oshawott considering how badass Samurott looks.

Snivy all the way!
water is the easiest to beat the games with. but ever since Treecko i have favored the grass starters. Swampert is still my favorite

Snivy for a couple of reasons:
1) Speed, having 2 hits are better than 1
2) Sets up screens efficiently because of his good defences and speed.
3) Aesthetically awesome.

Tepig is a woe, I'd hate another fire-fight, and oshawott looks like a clown, and I don't like clowns.

Decided to go with Tepig. On a recent business play-through, the little guy's made it easy for me to clear through the game, and the less time it takes for me to clear the game, the more time I'll have to start breeding and preparing my team.

I'll be taking Oshawott. Osha osha oshawott. So cute! Oh, and nice in battles, too.

In my mind no starter set will beat the Johto series set, those guys were awesome.

I'm choosing Oshawott in Black and Tepig in White.
