Meet your starting lineup for Pokemon Sun and Moon

More On: Pokemon Sun and Moon

Ready to meet your starter Pokemon for Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon?  I'll be honest, I have mixed feelings about these three.  In the trailer below we meet Rowlet (Grass/Flying), Litten (Fire), and Popplio (Water).  There are a couple of interesting facts about this.  First, for once I'd love to have a game where the three starters are something other than Grass, Fire, and Water.  Though I do understand that's probably the best route to go with picking a beginning Pokemon to start your journey, a little variety would be nice.

It's also the first time we get a dual-type Pokemon as a starter since Bulbasaur in Generation 1 with Rowlet being a Grass/Flying type (Bulbasaur is a Grass/Poison type).  I'd like to see more starter Pokemon have two types, though it would also have been nice if it wasn't the grass Pokemon again.  Maybe make Popplio Water/Ice or Litten Fire/Ground.  Still, design-wise they're not all that bad.
