Three days until Pokémon Sun & Moon are released in Europe and I’m so freakin’ excited. I really think that this is the best starter set we’ve seen since the days of Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. Knowing me being the cat lady that I am, it looks pretty obvious that I would go for Litten. I thought that there being a cat in a starter trio would make it an easy decision but I completely adore both Rowlet and Popplio, too. This is such a tough choice!
Rowlet is the cutest thing I have ever seen. He’s so round and sweet and he can turn his head 180°! He turns his head during battle to look at his trainer for instructions, which absolutely melts my heart. As well as being cute, he’s a tough little guy that evolves into the amazing Decidueye eventually. Decidueye is a grass ghost type that fires arrows from a bow which is able to pierce several targets in one shot if needed and looks like a ninja. Amazing.
Litten is a fire cat Pokémon. What more could I ask for? Litten grooms himself and attacks with fire hairballs! I’m losing my shit at how perfect that is. Once Litten reaches its’ third evolution and becomes Incineroar, a fire dark type, he becomes badass as fuck. I read on the official Pokémon website that although Incineroar appears to have a cold attitude, he has a warm heart and is immensely happy. Aww!
Popplio is a gorgeous acrobatic sea-lion. He reminds me of a playful little puppy that just wants your attention. He’s got mad balancing skills and a cool water gun attack. The final form of Popplio, Primarina, is absolutely stunning and uses glittery balloons to attack which is completely majestic as fuck. Primarina is a water fairy type and sings. What a beauty.
Okay, I’m going for Litten. I adore them all but I am a cat lady at heart and I love the design of Litten, Torracat and Incineroar. I want an Alolan Persian on my team. I might have a team of cats. Ahhh, life goals.
