Fire, Water, or Grass?

One of the most important decisions faced by every budding Pokemon trainer is the matter of starter Pokémon. You can only choose one – a sidekick that will ultimately effect your game style. 

The choice is always between a fire, water or grass Pokémon – each with its own strengths and weaknesses. In the latest Pokemon installment, dubbed Sun and Moon, you have these 3 to pick from.

The 3 characters were unveiled alongside yet to be named legendary characters (what appears to be a Super Saiyan lion and a crescent shaped bat) via the game’s first trailer video, released by the Pokemon Company today. The game is set in the Hawaii-inspired Alola region.
