I don’t have a Switch, but, if I had to pick just one, I’d go with Sobble. The other two don’t look that appealing to my eyes.

Grookey is my #1, Sobble is #2.

Scorbunny looks cool, but it just doesn't really break the typical fire starter mold. Grookey is at least adventurous and Sobble is actually a relatively conservative looking design for a water type.

You all look quite dashing with your new banners. :)

However the Sobble banners look the dashliest

even though the rabbit that leaves streaks of fire as it dashes is, by definition, the dashliest? :p

At first, everyone but Scorbunny looked fairly ugly to me, but I warmed up to them. There's a comic where a Sobble is on a tree, and gently grasps the trainer's finger with his chameleon-like hands, and that's where the revelation came. Sobble fan here.

It's simply impossible for me to choose just one now, the first reason is that they didn't release the other two forms you don't say? (mid and final), and because I love all three and I'll do my best to use them on my team in my first gameplay (or I can replay, using the ones that were missing)

It's sad, but I can't have this badge so soon X_X

I'm abstaining until I see the evolutions. In-part because all of these had me raising my eyebrow, and in-part because that can change things drastically. That said I'll probably go with Scorbunny unless it's Yet Another Brawling Fire Starter. Sobble, we'll see, Water's a diverse type. I generally stay away from Grass types after I regretted it performance-wise one too many times, unless their secondary type is convincing.

I typically wait to decide my favorite starter of each region until the whole line is revealed. But right now, Sobble is good because memes.
