    Not much. There will be a few pokemon only available in each. One time one version had a city and one had a forest or something. But yeah, not really much. We should know all actual differences by when it launches.

    The starter evolutions have leaked and Sobble's final stage is...disappointing.

    Fire starter's final evolution looks probably the best, overall pretty underwhelming, not as bad as Gen 5's starers, probably on par with Gen 2.

    I like the fire one the least. Highly considering not using one. Mono types suck.

    9.3 on IGN.

    Haven't played a Pokemon since Red & Blue, and I have no clue which to get!

    I think I'd prefer Sword, but somebody has to be contrarian.

    You do singles or doubles?

    Also look into getting a Dracovish, that thing is hilariously busted right now. Choice Band Fishious Rend is like a base 570 power move in rain.

    Singles only. Never got the appeal of doubles. I’ll take a look at Dracovish; Life Orb Drednaw with Swift Swim was my preference for this team because he can be a bulky tank that can get rid of problem pokes for that team that Corviknight can’t handle.

    Another option I was considering is unaware Quagsire, which is an old staple of mine.
