As usual, people have early copies of the game for reviewing the game, etc. I found out some exciting news! It took 4 gens since HGSS to have it this way again, but you can see the shiny starter on screen as you are picking your starter rather than waiting until the naming screen. I probably won’t start my file hunting one, but if I do a later playthrough, I may do that.

If you're going to post a 28 minute video could you at least post a timestamp?

Sorry, it’s a little more than 4 minutes into the video.

Oh yeah, he couldn’t remember at that 4ish min mark where it was mentioned, but if you skip ahead to around 7:30 he finds it again and shows the source, so at least he shows he wasn’t just making it up lol.

I'm not totally convinced, someone posted this, which could be what they're talking about:

So it might just be that as soon as you select it and it goes to that orange screen you can see, it might not be on the selection screen
EDIT: oh okay it's the same source, yeah it might just be when you select it, not before

Ah, I see. Well, either way, if you can save immediately before selecting it, it’s still a huge step forward from gens 6 and 7 with their lengthy cutscenes!
