Quick Updates

Weather Conditions

Season: Autumn

With the cooling season of Autumn, Ice-types are starting to re-emerge from their hibernation as Ghost-, Normal-, and Flying-types swarm in the largest numbers they will all year. In comparison, wild Fire- and Bug-type populations are falling in number. The migration of Flying-types to the south in search of warmer weather has also started, as Istin City starts to re-freeze and Autumn marks the beginning of Cypwater Point's rainy season. Handlers and Rogues alike should be wary: Ghost-type powers are boosted during this season, at the cost of being more prone to their triggers.

My first Pokemon game was Yellow, so Pikachu by default http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/13.png but the others were:

Red: Charmander
Green: Bulbasaur
Gold: Typhlosion
Silver: Totodile (female!)
Ruby: Torchic
Sapphire: Mudkip
Emerald: ... I might have been horrible and gone Torchic again, I'm sorry Treecko.
Diamond: Chimchar
Pearl: Piplup
White: Tepig
X: Fennekin
Sun: Litten

... yeah, I have a bias towards Fire-types, hence me expanding my list to each of the games I've played http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/13.png You can also see where I stopped buying into the 1 game for the price of 2 thing http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/13.png

Really I started with Sapphire, so I'll begin there http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/8.png

: Mudkip (mudkip! so cute! little fish-swamp-monster baby! i love treeko too though)
Diamond: Chimchar (i think, honestly i wasn't super invested? for some reason?)
SoulSilver: Cyndaquil (sweethearts, i tell you. also have a chickorita though)
Black/White/Black 2/whatever: Snivy (because it seemed least likely to be ugly and i was correct, might've switched in the next series but who knows?)
Y: Fennekin (fluff fox are the best fox)
Moon: Litten (kittens! all the kittens <3)

Red / Blue - Blubasaur in Red, but I didn't understand about Legendaries so thought t.hat the Pikachu I met in Viridian was a Mon you only get one chance at http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/12.png Restarted with Charmander. For Blue, I traded Squirtle off so I could start with Gastly http://i832.photobucket.com/albums/zz241/HarperRegion/Sprites/Emoticons/7.png.
Gold / Silver - Totodile.
Ruby - I want to say Mudkip or Torchic, don't remember.
Diamond / Pearl - Piplup or Chimchar, don't remember.
Black / White - Oshawott.
X / Y - Never played, but likely Fennekin.
Sun / Moon - Never played, but it's be Litten or Rowlett.

Alexander Fitzgerald | Emilie Chartoire

Awards: 5

FireRed: Bulbasaur, because I was super into dinosaurs
SoulSilver: Totodile, because bitey alligator thing (and here begins the pattern of me choosing lots of water starters)
Ruby: Mudkip
Pearl: Piplup
White: Tepig (which I picked for cuteness, and then ended up not liking, so for Black2 I didn't choose it again)
Black2: Oshawott
Y: Froakie, which was so amazing and thus so hard to resist picking it as Emilie's starter here!
Sun: Popplio. Definitely a rare choice, but I don't regret it. My now-primarina is very useful in battle.

I never played the Mystery Dungeon games, but I remember my sister picked Eevee in the first one she played. I loved Ranger, though, and still have my manaphy I hatched from the egg!
