With Pokemon X and Y being released for the Nintendo 3DS this past October and the Pokemon phenomenon showing no signs of slowing down, many users are picking up and starting a new adventure this holiday season. As in the past, with every new Pokemon game comes three new starter Pokemon, of which you can choose only one and set out on your quest. But how do you know which one best fits your play style and what are some of the things to worry about when choosing? Read on below to get all the fluffy little details.
Choosing Your Starter Pokemon
True to the well known format, in the beginning of Pokemon X & Y you will choose between three Pokemon of different types to start off on your adventure. Below we will list each Pokemon, their evolutionary stages and the type of moves and strengths/weaknesses of each Pokemon.
- Resistant to: Bug, Steel, Fire, Grass, Fairy and Ice type Pokemon.
- Weak Against: Ground, Rock and Water types.
- Evolution: Fennekin - Braixen - Delphox.
- Resistant to: Steel, Fire, Ice and Water.
- Weak Against: Grass and Electric.
- Evolution: Froakie - Frogadier - Greninja.
- Resistant to: Ground, Electric, Grass and Water.
- Weak Against: Flying, Poison, Fire, Ice, and Bug.

Now that you're familiar with the three starter Pokemon in X and Y, why not begin on your own Pokemon adventure? As your Pokemon grow and you add more to your ranks, be sure to share your tips and strategies in the comments below.
Stuck Deciding Between Pokemon X and Y?
If you're still wondering which game to go for, the only difference you will find between the two are the Pokemon available. The starter Pokemon are the same for each game, but in addition to these there are nine exclusive Pokemon to find and catch (not including their evolved stages). It's still possible to get the other versions of exclusive Pokemon by trading with a friend.
|Pokemon X||Pokemon Y|
|Staryu & Starmie||Shellder & Cloyster|
|Houndour and Houndoom||Larvitar, Pupitar, and Tyranitar|
|Poochyena and Mightyena||Electric and Manectric|
|Aron, Lairon, and Aggron||Purrloin and Liepard|
|Swirlix and Slurpuff||Spritzee and Aromatisse|
|Clauncher and Clawitzer||Skrelp and Dragalge|
Tips, Tricks & Warnings
- Remember that although these are your starter Pokemon, you will still be catching more along the way. Try to build a team that balances different types so you can switch between them to offset any strengths and weaknesses.
