PostSubject: Black and White Pokemon Starters    Mon Mar 07, 2011 12:42 pm

Ok, so I figured I'd write up a little info about the Gen 5 starters in case anybody was having trouble deciding between them.

#1. Snivy




Snivy is the grass type starter for the 5th gen, sporting good defenses and high Speed. However, it's move pool isn't the best, but it does learn some grass STAB type moves which help it later when it evolves. Along with this, it can also learn Swords Dance, which can help boost it's average attack stat to amazing levels, and combined with it's speed and defenses it can make Snivy extremely deadly. So if you're looking for a fast defensive Pokemon that can also deal some serious damage, Snivy would be a great choice.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#2. Tepig



By just looking at those stats, you're immediately thinking "offense" and you'd be right. Sporting high attack stat Tepig is meant for all out attacking no doubt. However, it's low defenses and speed mean anything faster than it, and with a type advantage, can totally wall you. But have no fear, this little fire pig has something up it's sleeve that easily makes up for it.

Flame Charge. Just imagine a STAB fire type attack that boosts the User's speed every single time you use it. However, even this has some drawbacks, as it'll take a few turns for Flame Charge to boost Tepig's speed high enough to start dealing damage faster than it's opponent, and by that time the opponent may have already knocked Tepig out. Overall, Tepig is a great offensive fire type that just takes a little prediction to turn it into a fearsome opponent.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

#3. Oshawott



Ah, Oshawott, my personal favorite and starter. Oshawott is a pure water type Pokemon, with well rounded stats rather than the offensive Tepig and defensive Snivy. Oshawott's main use would be a Special Attacker, sporting a high Special Attack stat it's perfect for the job. It doesn't learn very good Special Attack moves on it's own unfortunately, but with expansive TM coverage, this is hardly an issue. Overall, Oshawott is a well rounded special attacker and a nice addition to any team.

Oshawott for the win. Hes so cute. If I ever get black/white I'm picking him.

I stuck with tepig to keep up my tradition of always starting with a fire type.

I think its name is fine. Better than Mijumaru.

This sprite is epic:
