A water pig

A fire otter

and A, well, i dont even know what that last one is...

The water one looks so adoreable and cute!

SICK0_ZER0:
The starters get worse every generation, it's not 'nostalgia goggles' or whatever, the original 3 really are the best.

meh, I liked the second genration the most.

My opinion would be:

second generation: Meganium, Feraligator and Typh-fuckin-losion! HELL YEAH!
first generation: A walking overgrown plant, a flying dragon and a giant turtle... WITH CANONS? what's not there to like?
third generation: okay starters weren't that great except for MUDKIPZ! (I kid of course) but come on... a Kung fu flaming bird, a Ninja reptile and well.. that super mudkipz! they were alright!
fourth generation: a giant steel emperor penguin... yeah I'm cool with that but what about the other two! Oo
this : MY EYEEEEEES!!!!!

I'd like to see Dark/Phychic/Fighting starters, as they each are weak and strong against one of the others.

Apparently my friend said coloured screens have been posted, but IDK if he is BSing or not.

Found it. Dunno if it's real or fake, but...

KILL IT WITH FIRE. D:

The grass one's head looks kind of like the head of the fire type starting pokemon of the second generation. Other than that it just looks bizzare.

The other two are from what I can gather...a beaver and a Hippopotamus with hare ears and a pig tail.

Why....WHY?!

I guess the creators started smoking/inhaling/ingesting whatever the Final Fantasy creators are.

The new Team Evil will probably just be Sephiroth...

Pokemon ran out of ideas after Ruby and Sapphire. It just wasn't super obvious until now...

Okay, I don't like ANY of these starters.

The first two gen startes were awesome, though I wasn't a big fan of Venusaur and I found the Totodile line a bit 'meh'.
The third gen was good too if you ask me, though I wasn't a fan of Sceptile all that much.
4th gen was kinda lame, but I still liked the Piplup line.

This time, though... no.
Maybe the evolutions will be better, though, or they'll have some other redeeming qualities about them.

The stubby arms on the red panda fire type kinda ruin it although the evolved forms have some serious potential. The other two are just weird, like they threw a bunch of animal/pokemon parts in a hat and had to pick out a bunch for each at random.

I mean... Couldn't they have just gone with these? I like them so much more. I was so hyped about that list because they reminded me of the first gen, while still being new and creative. These new starters? Well, we have a... pigrabbit, which is... water? A fat... badger? Raccoon? For fire? As well as a... Well I don't even know what that thing it... but it's grass.

I've never had a complaint with any of the newer generations of pokemon before. I suppose there is a first time for everything though. I'm disappointed.

Not keen on either of them, however i do notice a firey fox, which has potential in later evolutions, so id pick the fire one.

...Oh good God, I don't even think fire will fix this problem.

...Nuke it from space. |:<

Now children the correct term is NUKE IT FROM ORBIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i'm feeling more and more alianated from pokemon than ever.
i'm gonna pretend this and diamond and pearl never existed.

*fingers in ears* LALALALALA...etc.

I just like to be as far away as possible.

Let's see. The grass one looks like a toucan mated with a gecko, the fire one looks like a raccoon that's gone through a gauntlet of yaoi-obsessed fangirls redrawing it, and the water one....oh the water one. Piglet+Peter Rabbit+Marill=Nightmare. I had such high hopes for this generation too. Oh well...

marter:
I don't really like the look of these new Pokemon. There's just something about them that seems... off.

They're starting to look too detailed...if these are genuine then the cartoony fun has gone, instead we have these odd detailed anime things.

These Pokemon seem to be more "real" to me, bearing a lot more detail than the normal cartoon type features previous creatures have born.

I'm a little disappointed that the triangle remains with fire-water-grass as its points. With Black and White as the game suffixes and a complete graphical overhaul I was hoping for innovation in something that would matter. As in dark-fighting-psychic becoming a focus.

It also slightly damages my hopes for a new type.

It isn't a surprise that nothing major changes wise has been announced so far, what with the recent article on HG/SS's sold units.

Yeah... Pokémon design is just going downhill.

I've always liked the starter waters, I always thought they looked the coolest. That being said only once did I prefer the Grass Type over it and that was the Third Generation with Treeko (in 15 minutes he saved me 15% or more on my bike insurance). That being said, if the color versions are legit, I might be leaning towards the grass again.... maybe, it's the only one whose goofyness is overshadowed by just how utterly bizarre it is. I'll have to see what they really look like to pass judgment, or see their evolved forms.

But now I want to see the first Bird, Rodent, and Bug you meet. I mean, if the starters are this odd...

That may just be it. Although, even with just the silhouettes, I still don't like them It's probably the shape, they just don't feel Pokemon-y if that makes sense.

John Funk:
The Piplup family. Adorable critter to a giant steel penguin.

Funk, you just keep getting more and more awesome, even if you have no idea who I am.

OT: It's pretty much guaranteed that they're going to look terrible. I've given up hope already.

They are absolutely appallingly horrible!!!!!!!!!

I think the pokemon creators really started the inbreeding when the time for a 4th generation came.
The 3rd generation had its flaws and a bleeping warning light as to where the series was going, but it also had its upsides like the starters and cacturne and such.

so...a fire-raccoon, bunn-pig of water and a ... thing ... which is leafy ...

I am not quite as excited about Black and White ...

Collin Henderson:
Considering this is the new generation, I wouldn't put it past them to possibly move away from the traditional fire/water/grass starters. I would love to see some kind of Ghost/Dark/Psychic choice or something like that. And seeing that these silhouettes aren't 100% clear on what type they are, who knows.

Ghost/Dark/Psychic doesn't really work.

Fighting/Dark/Psychic might, except for the obvious flaw in picking Pyschic as your rival will have a pokemon your STAB attacks won't effect at all.

Ghost can never be a starting Pokemon due to how unbalancing it would be for that first fight; Pokemon tend to only have a normal type move to start, so if you picked ghost you'd always win, while if you picked something weak to ghost you'd always lose.

Don't Poke My Bobcat:

Problem with that is, unlike the pattern held up by Water/Fire/Grass, Psychic type moves can't hurt Darks at all. Nothing, nada, Zero damage done. And by recent standards (where you gain a second type that is an advantage over your rival/become weak against the type you're powerful against) the psychic type would be at a greater disadvantage. Much more then Bulbasaur is to Charmander.

This is the same issue with Dark/Psychic/Ghost, as Ghosts aren't weak against psychic. The triangle they have now is simple to understand and simple to use especially for children playing Pokemon so they wouldn't change it.

Now those as secondary types to the starters as they reach their 3rd evolution? That'd be pretty cool.

I don't care what everyone else thinks, I like the racoonish one (if it does look anything like the coloured picture). It could be fun, especially if it gets fangs or something. :D

Grass and Fire ok but the water one? i mean try to make water pokemon look like they at least spend some life in a body of water. It looks like a pig and donkey had a head on collison with each other and then was t-boned by a blue paint truck.

I get what you mean, they're just looking too arbitrary or something.

It's the Daycare Center, they're breeding these these... creatures.

Oh I'm suuuuure you don't know where that egg came from, old man.

Disaster Button:
Am I the only one who actually likes the look of these Pokemon?

No, I love all 3. They are cute and their final forms have a lot of potential.

Disaster Button:
Am I the only one who actually likes the look of these Pokemon?

No. I liked them once I realised the bottom left wasn't a Charmander cross breed. And by the potientally faux images, they could be pretty cool.

A Red Panda fire starter? Consider me sold!

ALSO: it's pretty sad to complain about silhouettes. Let's at least wait for the official images before we start ranking them with the other starters.

Kimarous:
Show of hands. Who thinks this generation will kill the franchise? *raises hand*

Show of hand: Who thinks any pokemon games will sell millions even if Nintendo were to just remaking the same game with updated graphic?

*Raises both hands*

THOSE ARE FAKE!

Also I can't stop laughing at all of you who think that those are real.

Haha, that's great. It's funny when something as simple as this gets way out of hand.
