I looked up their evolved forms and abilities and I just don't like them. Right now I have a second evolution grooky, but I sent him to the box. I'd rather use gen 1 Pokemon.

Same, first gen benching too. Water starter final evo is just so ugly

I chose Scorbunny, and kept the little guy. I love the soccer player motif, and just the overall personality for him.

Emboar is decent, and is only plagued by the past two fire starters before him.

What I thought grookeys evos weren't that bad.. but I'm a percussionist. I picked sobble and kept him just to not be an a hole. I really wanted to replace him with Chewtle though lol. And I ended up doing an all gen 8 team

These bipedal humanoid starter evos are really starting to piss me off. They keep ruining cool pokemon with lots of potential like Fennekin, Tepig, and Sobble. At least the monkeys are SUPPOSED to be humanoid, so they don't bother me, but I'm so tired of it.

Well I did the first playthrough but only because he got clapped on a nuzlocke run.

The second playthrough is more chill so I'm not worried about it.
