Starter Pokémon revealed for Black and White

Previews Nintendo News DS Adventure


Serebii.net has leaked scans of the latest Coro Coro magazine, and now we know what our choices will be when it comes to the start of Pokémon this time around. They are your standard fire, water, and grass type starters but they are far from charmander, squirtle, and bulbasaur. These are called at the moment; a firey pig named Pokabu, a half shaved looking baby seal named Mijumaru, and finally a green lizard with a maple leaf tail named Tsutaaja.

Of course these names are for the Japanese version of the game and will most likely be modified for the English release of the game for better localization. Not only that but more information is released within these pages, such as the fact that the main characters will no longer be as young as they usually are, but more adult(pictured below). This adventure will also be starting in Hiun City within the Isshu region.

What do you guys think? Which starter would you choose this time around from what they look like? Could make for some interesting evolutions. Personally I would select Tsutaaja because he may evolve into some amazing looking dragon, plus I’ve always been a fan of the grass pokémon.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
  • I would definitely go with Tsutaaja as well. The pig looks stupid and girly, and the water thing looks terrible. Though my final decision is always based on their final evolution, they don’t stay pathetic for long.

    Tsutaaja’s design is just cool, it’s like even him knows how cool he is. I liked the protagonists too, both the boy and the girl received a nice design this time.

    The girl’s shorts look like a pokemon.
