Pokemon Legends Arceus puts us in a historic period in the Sinnoh Region. But the Sinnoh starters, Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup, aren't your starters here, they are just wild Pokemon. So what are the starters? and more interestingly.... WHY? TOFRUG PLUSH! ➤ www.gnoggin.net/

Why is each Pokemon given the type it has? What are their origins? What is the lore of the Pokemon world and the design inspirations? And what does it all have to do with alchemy? Let's Go find out!

    See this is like the only downside for me. None of them were my first choice, one of them wasn’t even my second choice, so when I get the game, I’m going to have a hard time deciding which starter to choose.

  • K O

    I think they picked them for gameplay purposes more than lore. The region is meant to be explored so they picked a starter that can carry you over water, one you can ride on and another that you use to fly. They picked rowlet, cyndaquil and, oshawatt because they couldn’t use galar or Sinoh’s starters since games have come out so recently with the starters in them. They also couldn’t do gen one because gen one pandering, and also we have seen too much charizard. After eliminating those the only flying starter is decidueye, then typhlosion is the best fire type for traversal, then the only two options left are samarott and swampert. So they chose samarott.

  • Thermus Aquaticus

    I love oshawot cuz it can learn mega horn in final evolution, which is good against grass, psychic, and dark.

  • coco loonas

  • batman2683

    I think they picked them for the same reason they do everything. Out of laziness to design new pokemon

  • Zerow

    If it were up to me I would have picked Cyndaquil, Froakie and Treecko.

    • Poke Dino
      Poke Dino

      They picked Oshawott over Froakie because Samurais originate from Japan while Ninjas originate from China.

  • Zerow

    Cyndaquil is cool its one of the few fire starters besides Charizard and Blaziken thats actually desirable. Rowlet is good too but grass types are safe anyway apart from Grookey and Chespin, their final evolutions are simply trash. But why Oshawott I get it a samurai fits but Gen 5 starters are ass except Snivy why not pick Froakie, its not overrated its objectively better than this forgettable clown looking Samurai fish. Not a dealbreaker though because unlike in Hoenn I won't have to struggle for minutes to pick a starter and just choose between fire and grass. The only way I see me picking Oshawott is if it gets a mega that looks like Susanoo but that won't happen.

    • 5000Gary
      5000Gary

      Rowlett(Archery/Kyudo) and Cyndaquil(final evo having shogun in Japanese name) are also both samurai-related so it makes little to no sense they would ever pick Froakie over Oshawott for this trio

    I like to think that the starters are the representatives of the different colonial forces....the mainland Japan ...Cyndaquill, the islands in the south of Japan Rowlett and the west as Oshawott

      @BlueSpike what about mudkip? That's an underrated one, even though it has the best stats of all of the starters

    Why Oshawott, Rowle and Cyndaquil? Because they're the best starters of each type, that's why.

      There are three different pronounciations A) Ar-See-Us which is the anime pronounciation B) Ar-Kee-Us which is the Pokedex 3D Pro pronounciation C) Ar-Kay-Us which comes from Arceus' English name origin. It's name comes from the words "Archaic" (Ar-Kay-ik) meaning ancient and "Deus" (Day-us) (There is an accent on the E but I don't know how to type it.) which means God. LOL. Arceus' name literally means Old God.

      Can you explain why? Rowlett represents archery(kyudo) and Cyndaquil represents shoguns, both which have stronger connections with the samurai Why shouldn't water be samurai-related?

    2 months later but: OMG! SOMEONE ACTUALLY MENTIONING THE YUMI AND HORSE RIDING WHEN TALKING ABOUT SAMURAI!!!! Also, before the Samurai weren't allowed to fight anymore, which I believe was the Edo period of Japan, a Samurai would be laughed at (supposedly) for effectively going "yeah, my Swordsmanship is so good! Better than my Archery skills!" It all changed when war wasn't a thing and then the Samurai Katana became a thing and it was like "these have always been super cool and awesome and if you don't believe us we'll kill you!" So, yeah, there was a very long period where being a commoner and even owning a Katana was a health risk, let alone having it on your person or carrying and you didn't wanna be caught in town with one for sure. The more you know!~

    Seriously, this takes place in sinnoh, Arceus is a sinnoh Pokemon, it makes sense u use the SINNOH starters for this game doesn't it? Especially when u consider that Oshawott and Rowlet were from later generations Tho given that rowlet and Oshawott have samurai ties and cyndaquil links to military leaders and fiery blasts, I guess it kinda makes sense

    • Poke Dino

    What about the 1920’s, Cyndaquil comes from Johto, Kansai Region of Japan in the real world. Rowlet from Alola (Hawaii). In the 1920’s Japanese made up 43% of Hawaii’s population. Oshawott is from Unova (New York) In 1920 a quarter of the 300 largest corporations were headquartered in New York City, The hotspot for trade and finance.

    Before watching this video I'm gonna drop my opinion that immediately came to mind, maybe when they first started developing tho game gen 7 was the newest so they went with Rowlett as a grass starter and they wanted starters from different generations in gen 6 for a water type froakie gets to much love especially since it already has a mega form and maybe these guys will get Megas so they went with oshawatt they probably didn't want chinchar as a fire starter sine that's gen 4 torchic has a mega and so does Charizard (plus Charmander has been in many games) so cydaquil was the pick plus all three of these guys could use some more love
