Re: Gen V Grass Starter

I think a koala would be neat, and could eventually evolve into a giant ground sloth.

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

A bird. Something green and red and tropical. It'd have to be tall and ratite-like, but should be able to fly, imo. Although Fire and Water already had flightless birds, so maybe something like a moa would be cool.

If not a bird, I'd like to see a tree kangaroo that ends up as a red kangaroo in the end. Grass/Fighting. Kinda sick of Fighting starters, though.

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

Who knows. Maybe it'll be a Hyundai Sonata.

I think we could've lived without another starter topic, let alone any of them when we've got the idea threads (and even a starter thread already if I'm not mistaken).

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

Going by past trends, the grass starter will be a reptile and the final evolution will be some sort of dinosaur.

Actually (it may just be a fan Connection) but in the Previous Two Generations we have had a Bird as a Starter.
A Fire Bird=Torchic,(based partly on a Chicken),
A Water Bird=Piplup(based partly on a Penguin),
If there is a Connection then we should be getting a Grass Type Bird Starter, the Common Consensus is if we get one it will probably be a Peacock.

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

Shouldn't this all be in... one topic on the Gen V starters in general?

Winged Lizard. It can be both. I'd prefer a Cockatrice Pokémon though, as we already have Aerodactyl, which is based on the pterosaurs (basically Wyverns. Grass/Flying ftw

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

They should have a Grass/Bug starter.

Like a grasshopper or a locust. Those things are cool. 8]

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

Well whatever it is, I sure hope it looks cooler than Turtwig.

I hope for another lizard based Pokémon (like the Sceptile-line), or... I dunno, something cute.

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

I say the final form would look like
except the tentacles are roots/vines


Seriously, a shambling mound grass type could be cool.

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

I'm kinda hoping for a flightless bird (peacock ftw) that evolves into a bird/reptile hybrid. That way, they can follow both the "flightless bird" trend and the "Grass starter=reptile" trend. Plus, a Grass type wyvern or something would just be epic.

If not that, then I kind of want a triceratops (Grass/Rock or Grass/Steel) and it could be a very defensive Pokemon

Or maybe a T-Rex Grass type that focuses on physical offense (Sceptile already focuses on Special Attack, this could be a physical counterpart). If this happens, I want it to be pure Grass specifically to show it as a counterpoint to Sceptile

That actually reminds me of Tangrowth :T

I would like to see a Kiwi or Peacock. Maybe a Kiwi for the starter and the Peacock for the last evolution.

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

I will jump on the flightless bird bandwagon. I would love to see a peacock or flamingo (especially after watching Alice In Wonderland on the weekend) for the Gen V grass starter. So yeah a grass type flamingo would be pretty epic, but hard to do right!

Remember:
Dodrio appears to have more in common with ostriches, Kiwi birds, emus, cassowaries than dodos.
So they might opt not to do one given that they already have one (yes I know we have multiple dogs and so on).

Re: Gen V Grass Starter

I think speculation on a matter such as this is a little silly, but I do know that I'd like a mammalian grass starter.
More mammalian grass pokemon in general actually.
