  • Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

So, rules of this game are simple.
The first user posts a thematic list of some sort.
Then the next one deletes one entry from said list and gives a reason for deleting this particular entry.
Then the third one deletes yet another point.
The game continues until only one entry is left, at which point the user who deleted the second-to-last one creates a new list with a new theme.

For example, the first person gives a list of western elements:
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Wind
  • Earth
The second person replies:
  • Water
  • Wind
  • Earth
I delete fire due to its destructive power.

The third person then says:
  • Wind
  • Earth
I delete water, 'cause I can't swim.

Finally, the fourth user replies:
  • Wind
Earth is boring, so wind wins.
New list theme - [add a theme of your choice here]

So let's start with the list of starter Pokemon in the main series.
  • Bulbasaur
  • Charmander
  • Squirtle
  • Chikorita
  • Cyndaquil
  • Totodile
  • Treecko
  • Torchic

  • Chimchar
  • Piplup
  • Snivy
  • Tepig
  • Oshawott
  • Chespin
  • Fennekin
  • Froakie
  • Rowlet
  • Popplio
  • Litten

A bit too many grass types here, thus Treecko, being the only Hoenn starter left, gets eliminated.

Rowlet should stay Grass/Flying IMO. So, regretfully, it's Rowlet.

While water is my favorite typing, I'd prefer some other starter over Froakie.

Cyndaquil is the best Fire-Type starter left. Too bad, Tepig!
