Dice- I smell a Pokemon/ love adventure crossover.  Hey, if they could cross over Pokemon and Nobunaga's ambition, why not Pokemon and Memories Off with your cute girl designs of Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie? 

Oh man, I smell a kinda creepy/awesome idea that has anthropomorphic pokemon that you can hook up with.  Poké-nerd fantasies can come true!!!!

...I'd totally eat-up a real Sandslash.  His "hair" would be awesome.

Considering the awesomely creepy nature of many Japanese games that make us raise our eyebrows (like that doujin love adventure with the giant pigeons), I'm surprised that crossover hasn't been done yet.  Although perhaps the idea of a tsundere Bulbasaur using vine whip with dominatrix tendencies may perhaps have too much of a squick factor...

Then again, some Pokemon like Gardevoir and Gothitelle look like anime human females so perhaps this crazy idea isn't too far off.  

Are we turning Japanese?   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWWwM2wwMww

EDIT: I can totally see your Chespin girl as the childhood friend archetype, the Fennekin girl as the popular/out-of-your-league girl you've been crushing on from afar, and Froakie girl as the quiet mysterious one.  Man, I really HAVE played too many love adventures that I can pick out archetypes based solely on appearance.

They need to be cute. ◕‿◕

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

Dice- I think we've unleashed a monster.  The only ones I can safely say I like are the Lapras girl and the Kingdra girl because they don't look like jailbait.

I typically go with the Fire type.

The Grass ones typically has too many issues and Water types are a dime a dozen.

Now if only I knew if Gen 6's Fire Starter evolved into a Fire Fighting type or not because that's been done to death.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I think there was some descriptions floating around implying we're getting Water/Fighting and Fire/Psychic, and people logically extended that to assume we'll get Grass/Dark.

If that's the case then Water/Fighting is the most appealing by a long shot.  Anyhow, I usually get the Grass starter because it fills some holes in a normal attack profile that aren't fulfilled by my other favorite attacking types (Ground, Fighting, Rock, Dark, and Ice).  I always have a team with those five skills on it, and a good Grass starter is a great solution to taking on a Water.

Water Fighting would be a pretty swell choice as long as Gen 6 doesn't pull a Gen 4 and leave ALL of its Fire types til post game (save for the Fire Starter and Ponyta). But I wont assume anything on starters since people assumed that Gen 5's Fire Starter was going to end up with a Fire Dark pokemon since it looked like Ganon and 'why would GameFreak make a third Fire Fighting starter in a row?'.

I loved Charmander, so I always pick the fire type because that is the closest I can get to him. I honestly haven't even looked at the starters for the new generation yet. >.>

Oh what a coincidence, I just found that out the hard way. Please excuse any typos, as I seem to have GONE BLIND.

OT: I'm actually hoping that the water starter is Water/Electric, for no other reason than because I've seen a lot of fanart that makes his evolutions look like a viking, and I want to call him "Thor."
