Well ladies and gents the starters (and mythical mascot Pokemon) for Sun and Moon have been revealed:

Thoughts?

I think I'm going to go for the Fire starter this time around. Not too keen on the seal. The owl is cute but I want the final form to be somewhat badass

Gotta admit, these starters are possibly some of the most cute we've had! Not too keen on the version mascots though, they seem a bit off to me but i dont know what exactly. Personally i'm gonna go for the Grass starter; It's an owl with whta looks like a little bowtie, how could i resist
On a side note, the graphics already look monumentiously better than X and Y

The "Sun" legendary is liked a Super Saiyan Entei

I like 'em both. Can't wait for the game!

I'm really disappointed honestly. I usually go with the fire starter, but I hate cats. The water starter is derpy. I suppose I'll have to go with the Rowlett.

The legendaries are over designed and look like digimon. The moon legendary especially is a missed opportunity. They could've gone with a wolf which would've been more awesome. The bat just looks really lame.

At least character customization is back. The graphics appear to be upgraded as well.

The designs of both the legendaries and the starters kind of put me off at first, but they are really starting to grow on me. I am definitely going to choose Litten as my starter now, and I am probably going to get Moon like I had planned from the beginning even if the legendary is a little disappointing (I would have liked to have seen a wolf-like Pokemon as the legendary).

That being said, the region and the game itself looks wonderful. I love that Hawaii is the main inspiration this time around. And the trainers actually look like humans instead of chibi characters!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this. The lion looks like it would be an alternate mega form for Leomon.

I think on their own, they look cool, but as pokemon, it feels weird. I'll probably get used to it like I did with many of the Gen V pokemon, but it's still noticeably different.

The legendaries look over designed to me, but I was never a fan of legendaries in the first place. Love the starters though. Although the water one took a little to grow on me. Depending on how they are when they evolve, I'll probably go with the fire or grass starter. Starters don't matter as much to me in the long run at least because I often switch em out for other Pokemon.

Starters didn't mean much to me either, until I saw how powerful some of them could be in battle (e.g., Greninja, Blaziken). Plus, some of the final forms look pretty damn cool (my all time favorite Pokemon now is Greninja).

I'm with you in that I'm tentatively going with Litten as my starter, but I'll have to see what the final evolution looks like (kinda shallow, yeah haha).

Omg I love the bird! I have been put off of the grass starters recently but I'm definitely going with him. I hope his final evolution is more like a big Kakapo though! As soon as I saw his cute little bow tie I lost it! >:3

I'm really not sure what to make of the legendaries so far though. I was feeling Sun before I saw anything at all but after seeing the big bleached Pyroar I'm not so sure. ;___;

Don't know why but I got a Card captor sakura feel with the legendaries too, the lion reminded me a tiny bit of Keroberos and the Moon one is sort of vampire-like the silver haired guy, forgot his name. @.@

Yeah Rowlet is easily the cutest but I've never really been a fan of Grass types (Sceptile is pretty badass but that's about it).

As for the legendary mascots, I'm just happy it's not Mega Solrock or Mega Lunatone

I wonder if Litten is going to have a secondary typing when it evolves.... A few of the Fire starters have gotten one, if memory serves me right (e.g., Blaziken and Infernape are Fire + Fighting).

I'm really excited for this! As much as I love Rowlet, I have to go with Litten. Hoping to get Rowlet through Womder Trade. I also plan on picking up Moon.

Wonder what kind of preorder bonuses we'll get for the game this year.
