You kids today are lucky to have game with WIFI. Back in my day you had to find someone that a different starter then you did and trade or get more then one copy of that game. That is why on my Emerald run I choose Swampert (Sceptile in Sapphire). Other only have one weakness that make him Sceptile Punching bag and a good move pool, it does not standout with other starters with it stats
Do you like Mudkips... No! give me a Swampert!
