Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle are starters in Pokemon X & Y

by Ben Salter Featured 14 Comments 22 Votes 8176 Views 05/09/2013 Back to News

Nintendo is mixing up the starters formula in Pokémon X & Y.

Not only will you be able to choose from the three newcomers, Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie, Professor Sycamore will additionally offer you one of the classic starters from Pokémon Red and Blue -- Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle.

The three retro Pokémon will evolve into their final forms, Venusaur, Charizard and Blastoise, and once you have a Mega Stone they will be able to Mega Evolve while in battle.

Nintendo also revealed that Mega Evolutions aren't that easy. As well as the Mega Stone, trainers will need to have the Mega Ring that holds a Key Stone to trigger the otherwise impossible transformation.

My mind was blown a little bit by this.

Charmander 4 life.
Squirtle, mofos, SQUIRTLE!!!
If Firefox ends up having a sick final evo, it's gonna suck having two fire Pokemon. Meh, anything for the manchild in me. :P
Charmander!
I might have to buy myself a 3DS after all. That Blastoise [Derp]
AWESOME with a double [Derp] [Derp]
squirtle all the way..

im in the same boat. I was gonna choose froakie but I don't want two water starters either... part of me wants squirtle cause hes my all time favourite pokemon, but the other part wants to deposit him first chance I get and play exclusively with the new pokemon... what to do
thought this was a troll post to begin with but this is awesome
Get all 6 and play through with an uber powerful team ftw :P

Jk I probably won't do that even though I could.
Gonna box the Kanto starter, purely new Pokémon for me in the first run through.
