Pokemon Black and White Ultimate Starter Guide

So, you've got your copy of Pokemon Black or Pokemon White, but which of those three little guys do you want to take along for the ride? 

Unless you happen to have a thing for Water , Fire or Grass types, or one of the new monsters captured your eye for some other reason, it can be a pretty complex decision.

If you're looking for an easy ride, you might want to go with Tepig, the Fire-type Pokemon. This little rascal makes for a much easier play through since his next evolutions, Pignite and Emboar, are both Fire and Fighting type, which means that this little piggie is type-advantageous to the first three gyms and neutral to the fourth.

If you're looking for a challenge, choose Snivy, the Grass-type Pokemon. Having him as your main monster will provide the most difficult play through, which is perfect for seasoned Poke masters, as well as bold Pokemon noobs.

With Oshawott, you'll have a much easier time trudging your way through the game's beginning, but be aware that his final evolution, Samurott, looks completely different from his first two forms, in that it's completely un-otterlike in every way possible. Of course, this has absolutely no effect on gameplay, but you might want to check out who Oshawott is going to evolve into and make sure you're okay with that before choosing him.

Now it's decision time-- which of these three starters do you like best?
