    As with the previous Pokemon games, the tradition is to offer the players to choose 1 out of the 3 different starters. Each starter Pokemon would be of a different element, and depending on the elemental Pokemon chosen, gamers will get an advantage or disadvantage at the beginning of the game.

    Rowlet

    Among the starter Pokemon is this grass and flying-type Pokemon named Rowlet, which looks strikingly similar to an owl. It can turn his head around 180º which it regularly does in battle when receiving the player’s instructions. It attacks using razor sharp leaves and it has a special ability called Overgrow.

    Litten

    The next Pokemon is a called Litten, which is a cat-like creature that is cool-headed, logical, and does not show its emotions upfront. Like a cat, it would groom its fur, upon which it collects the oil from the fur to be used to fuel its fire attacks, as it is a fire-type Pokemon.

    Popplio

    The third Pokemon is this goofy and playful water-type Pokemon which resembles a sea lion. Its fighting skills involve acrobatic stunts, and it can create a bubble to be used as a gymnastic ball. This Pokemon is called Popplio, and looks like it is the most cheerful out of the 3.

    Which Pokemon would you pick if you were to play the new Pokemon games? Judging from designs alone, I am fond of Rowlet. Its ability to turn his head around 180º is such a unique quirk!
