This thread is rather hysterical... or rather the first page, which is all I read.

Back to my thoughts-- nineteen feet tall, Yveltal!?!? Is that a bit excessive? This is the first time the complimentary legendaries will have such huge discrepencies between them- to the point that they dont really seem to compliment each other at all in any way.

Dunno how true this is, but I found an image (it's really big) that explains the inspirations for the different starting pokemon. Lists Chespin as based off a "Megazostrodon, the first mammal".
doubt that is true,snivys line seems to be more based on the snake from the bible,starting with limbs and losing them later.

their dream world ability also supports this to some extend

Jace2012 Theres a little patch of grass you can find by going through Castelia sewers, missed it myself the first time I went there cause I forgot it how to find it.

Most of those "explanations" are either completely obvious or pointless. Whoever made that wasn't even consistent, for some he went off looks then for others he goes by what the games say.

Just fan speculation that isn't worth anything. Torterra should be pretty obvious, TORtoise, for example. The zodiac deal takes a lot of streching to work.

Ha! Not true in the slightest, I expect. They seem to be really grasping at straws, desperate to find connections that just aren't there. Chespin is a hedgehog. And Grotle and Torterra are tortoises, and Snivy's line are snakes.

Beating Brock with a Charmander is not that hard, but Misty with just a Charmeleon is impossible. Unless of course you train it to level 35 or something.

You can find Vaporeon (or Eevee) in the wild?

I still haven't figured out how I feel about chespin. It really looks way too much like Oshawott. I mean I'm sure it's supposed to be a chipmunk but it just doesn't look as good as the others.
I actually think Chespin's a hedgehog.

Zombie_Barioth I agree with you.

StrykerHedgehog Charmander is the other starter that is pure Fire type.

Anyways, I think that starters are about style mostly. In the end they do not affect your gameplay that much. I think that type versatility is more important in a team. For example in BW2 if you do not choose Tepig as your starter you can always catch a Darumaka later on which is better by far. Same goes with other starters, although i have not found any decent Water types and i am at the 5th Gym. Any suggestions?
Again, I's say thats true. Your starter only really affects the first couple of gyms, afterwards you have access to a nice variety of pokemon to balance thing out. More so for the newer games since they've been making pokemon strong against the gyms more available. The "difficulty" only effects younger players that might actually want to start with the easier choice.

Good water types were a bit harder to come by this time around, they pretty much saved the good ones for late game. Golduck, Vaporeon, and Swanna are good choices at that point until you get surf.

It's not supposed to be impossible, just slightly harder than the other two in the original version. Its still pokemon afterall.
You want impossible, go at Brock with just Pikachu in Yellow, with Quick Attack being your only non Electric type move. Dear lord I have never spammed so many moves trying to get to Struggle before. And then shortly after that there is a hiker who has 3 Pokemon instead of 2 that are all stronger than Brock's and all Ground type.
One reason why I never beat Yellow. Im planing on doing it on an emulator because I know what to do now. Rule 1 for Pokemon Yellow - Mankeys are your friends.

That!

At the Grass where you first battle your rival (at the start of the road to E4 you can catch a Mankey and kick Brock to the ground! (with fighting moves). That is how i cleared yellow at least

And your point is what exactly?
my point is that it can be done. I've done it. But it just takes patience.
