I chose Oshawott as well. Honestly, i really don't like these batch of starters. And i don't see what the big deal is with Snivy. It's so ugly =_=;; And it evolves into an ugly Pokemon. I think Tepig is cute, but only in it's first form. Once it evolves it's ugly too. Oshawott is the only one that's decent looking, and i think the samurai part of it really attracted me to it.
