So which one are you going to choose in the upcoming Sinnoh remake?
>>
infernape. the least offensive of these ugly fuckers. worst starters of any gen.
>>
>still no Box Pokemon
>>
>>32368197
Probably boxing them unless they get a new form or something that makes them worth using again.
>>
>>32368204
word
>>
>>32368197
Torterra only IF they buff it, otherwise i'll choose empoleon because never liked infernape
>>
Depends on the design and ability of their Megas.
>>
>>32368197
I love Torterra but I probably choose Empoleon for Garchomp.

>>32368197
Piplup as always.
>tfw they'll remake diamond and pearl not platinum
>tfw favorite gen ruined
Masuda should've died instead of Iwata.
>>
Probably Infernape because my autism demands that I have a Fire type on all of my teams, and if they pull and ORAS and only remake Diamond and Pearl, there'll be literally 1 other Fire line in the entire fucking region.

Or box them. I've ended up doing that a lot of the time that I've played through Sinnoh.
>>
Depends if they keep the Platinum extended dex with more fire types than fucking Ponyta.

If not, Chimchar. If yes, Turtwig.
>>
Empoleon because my autism demands that I use the water starter on my first run even first runs of remakes.
>>
>>32368197
I really hate all of the gen 4 starters, but I Torterra is the one I hate the least. That being said I am still going to box it as early as I can.
>>
>>32368290
>>32368212
This.
I think I'll pick up a Budew and run around till it turns into a Roselia.
The issue with Sinnoh is it's shitty Pokemon distribution which wasn't even fixed in Platinum. Throwing a Ralts on a early route doesn't change the fact that most everyone's team will be some variation of Starter/Luxray/Staraptor/HM Slave because you're constantly pelted with shitmons like Wurmple and Bidoof well past the first gym.
>>
Torterra is greatly underrated, disliked because its not a furry or waifu
>>
>>32368329
it is a waifu though.
>>
>>32368327
At least we won't need 2 or 3 designated HM slaves this time around. That's assuming gamefreak doesn't fuckup big time and remove ride pager from the next games.
>>
>>32368378
>That's assuming gamefreak doesn't fuckup big time and remove ride pager from the next games.
They probably will, see how we lost trainer customization in ORAS because GF described it as "something that only felt at home in Kalos". They'll remove Ride Pokemon and justify it with something like "Sinnoh's constant required use of HMs helped fuel the feeling of adventure" or some shit.
Hope you got room for Rock Smash and Defog, anon.

Empoleon , roserade it's a better torterra
>>
>>32368197
Empoleon because it's my favorite of all time and actually still works in competitive.
>>
>>32368197
Chimchar because Gamefreak will inevitably use the DP dex.
>>
>>32368329
None of the Gen 4 starters are waifu, bara or furry though. Especially in comparison to the later gens.
>>
>>32368197
Torrtera. Infernape if they fuck up and use the DP Dex instead platinum
>>
Hmm, maybe Turtwig. I originally ran Chimchar without knowing its final evolution and was pretty fine with it. Piplup could be interesting, but I honestly never feel any connection to Water starters desu
>>
>>32368197
Piplup best choice
>>
>>32368197
Infernape
Honchkrow
Bronzong
Abomasnow
Gastrodon
One of the Rotom forms or Mega Lopunny.
>>
>>32368513
lol
>>
>>32368254
>Probably Infernape because my autism demands that I have a Fire type on all of my teams
Basically this.
Also:
>my autism demands non-ugly(torterra) an non-unpet[fug]able(empoleon) mons
She will be named DidiKong.
>>
>>32368204
Fuck you

>>32368217
And you too


Tasteless plebs aside, these are the best group of starters since the original trio. They work collectively so well, they have nice busy designs, they even have a little inverse weakness thing going on. They're great.

Empoleon is by far my favorite, but I do like Torterra for a challenge and maybe I'll do a run with Infernape just for fun because Close Combat fit it like a glove back then, and it's nice to relive memories.
>>
>>32368197
Will remake my first team that beat platinum see if it still holds up
>Infernape
>Raichu
>Rhydon
>Crobat
>Bronzong
>Gastrodon

Then will probably replay with a new team
>>
>>32368197
Torterra, even if it happens to be DP dex-only.
>>
>>32368469
everything is better than shiterra
>>
Doesn't matter. I'm just gonna box it anyway
>>
>>32368197
gonna get a luxray and box the starter
>>
i really don't know
they are the worst starters
>>
Piplup I guess, best of a bad lot for me. I wonder if they'll bring back muh battle frontier this time or if it's dead forever.

Piplup since it's the least ugly out the three. Will box it when I get a Roselia.
>>
>>32368204
>titsmonkey
>not the worst starter design of all
>>
none of 'em
sinnoh is shit, so why would I want its remake?
>>
>>32373411
I was going to argue with you but it took me like over 15 seconds to even remember all three of the starters. So I guess you're right.
>>
In remakes, I always pick my original choice. So Turtwig.
>>
>>32368197
I picked Piplup in the original, but I think I might go for the monkey this time around since I've started liking Sun Wukong. Piplup is still god tier though.
>>
Piplup. It's not even a choice for me.
>>
>>32368197
The Piplup line is the most popular of the gen 4 starters. Choosing anything but Piplup is objectively wrong.
>>
>>32368418
If they don't bring in customization for the remake I'm going to have an autistic fit.
>>
>>32368197
I love all of the sinnoh starters but I'm probably gonna go Infernape if GF fucks up again and gives us the same awful fire type distribution like they did in the original games
>>
Ran Infernape for my Diamond nuzlocke, and I can't stand Piplup's line, so Turtwig for me. I lost my Torterra in my Platinum nuzlocke to Cynthia (entire team wiped to her), so I owe it to him to try and have Torterra survive to the end.
>>
>>32368204
It's literally the only gen in which all of the starters are very good, thus being difficult the decision of picking one.
>>
>>32368197
Since Game Freak are lazy faggots I know they won't fix the abysmal lack of fire types in the region, so I'll be forced to pick Chimchar.
>>
>>32368327

>>
do people actually think there's gonna be a sinnoh remake or is it just a meme?
>>
>>32368197
Got Torterra originally but might go for Empoleon this time.
>>
>>32370725
>nice busy
I spot a contradiction
>>
>>32373996
It's just one or two Sinnohfags. They don't realise that the age >>32373996
of remakes is dead now that we have VC.
>>
>>32370725

>Best group of starters
No. Empoleon was my favorite as well, but that's because Torterra wasn't interesting to me and Infernape was a clone of Blaziken. Gen 6 had better starters than Gen 4.

>Inverse weakness
Empoleon's water/steel, dipshit. He'd get his shit wrecked by Infernape (fighting) AND Torterra (ground).
>>
>>32372724
This.
I'd settle for a Riolu starter, too
>>
>>32368197
Chimchar. I used turtwig (Platinum) and piplup (pearl) last time.
>>
>>32368197
Depends on whether they use the DP regional dex or the Platinum one.

If it's DP then I'll go with Infernape because I'm not so keen on Rapidash.

If it's Platinum then I'll probably pick Torterra, if only because I've used Empoleon twice and Torterra only once before.

If they completely change the dex then I'll cry and let RNG decide.

kek two more denialfags to my screenshot folder

>Z Earthquake
>Z Close Combat
>Z Aqua Jet

WHY THE FUCK DOES THE WATER STARTER ALWAYS GET SCREWED BY IT'S Z MOVE WHILE THE OTHER 2 GET BREAD AND BUTTER FOR THEIRS
>>
I don't like Infernape and Lumineon takes precedence over Empoleon so gotta go with Torterra

>he boxes his starter
Chimchar all the way. Cutie little monkey becoming big burning fire monkey is the real jam.
But they better bring back the WiFi plaza with this shit, I never got to experience it back then.
>>
Chimchar, as it is the only starter from Sinnoh I didn't use yet

It can't be worse than Turtwig
>>
>>32368197
Your sister beacuse i've already used your mum twice in a row!
>>
Only passable one is Empoleon but I'm bored of it and don't feel like using it again. I'd just box it.

That said, I feel exactly the same way about the whole Sinnoh dex. I really don't want remakes of that gen yet. I only like a handful of Pokemon from it and I still vividly remember using them.
>>
>>32374656
ayyyyyyyyyyyy
>>
Not entirely sure. I actually love all three of them beyond words, so I might randomly mash the analogue stick blindly and pick whatever it lands on. That being said, I'm slightly biased towards Empoleon because of all the memories back in '06.
>>
>>32373485
Same, however as long as they don't remove Dawn and replace her in a fashion like Crystal to lyra I'll get over it

This.
Unless they get Megas, I'm boxing the starter, and gonna start my playthrough with a Phione, and when it reaches level 40, will box it and use the level 40 Manaphy I'm preparing beforehand.

If they use the Platinum dex Empoleon

Are ya dumb? I'm gonna transfer them through the bank. They're legit.

chimchar if they use diamond dex
fuck you ponyta

Why are people so obsessed with using a Fire Pokemon in their team? It's not even a good type.

team balance

Torture cause he was my first starter.
>>
>>32375887

>needing a "balanced" team for in-game

why?
>>
>>32375907
Autism.
There are enough types in the game for someone to have a team that evenly covers all their weaknesses without a Fire type being present.
>>
>>32375879
because i always use one in my run
