Oh, the 8th pokemon generation is finally at the start? just waiting for the evolutions forms before I make my final choice. At the moment it is Grookey, it is a cute ape pokemon.

Game freak have been quiet since the big reveal, maybe they're trying not to give too much away until closer to the release date?

That is nothing new, as Game Freak is known to reveal more and more about the new pokemons the closer the next game to the release date comes.

Yeah you're probably right, it's best to wait before choosing favourites, I remember in gen 6 everyone hated froakie but ended up loving greninja.

Controversial opinion: Gen 1 is the worst generation and generation 5 is the best. I can already feel the backlash xD

I loved gen 5 for the story, but as far as new Pokemon go, my favourite is gen 4. If I were to choose a starter from first glance, it’d be Sobble but I guess it’s too early to say without the full evolution line. Generation three had the best starters in my opinion, although it’s one of my lower rated generations on the whole.

Let's compare it to gen 6 being announced six years ago, we already knew the names of six new Pokémon at this time of the year. Fairy-type was announced in June and Mega Evolution was announced in August. The games were released in October. So for gen 8 I think we'd expect to know more about any new mechanics by July

That is a very good example. I was not such a big fan of froakie, but his evolutions convinced me and his final form is still one of the best designs in terms of the starter pokemons. Froakie has shown it is worth to wait and not to decide too soon.

I love gen pokemon 4 but personally gen 5 pokemon r my favourite, which is peculiar considering everyone hates them lmao. I just love the eccentric designs, especially Garbodor and Vanilluxe xD however they probs had the worst starters tbh excluding serperior. My personal favourite line of starters r from gen 2 and my favourite region is defo gen 6.

OMG IKR like for previous, there were leaks and new info being revealed every other day but nothing much so far for gen 8

But fr i feel like the ugliest and most underated first line evolutions end up evolving into the coolest pokemon.

Is it just me or were you talking about froakie and missed some letters? if so, I had the same feeling about this pokemon.
