    Only if you classify Order Reptilia monophyletically. In which case, modern birds, proto-birds, and coelurosaurs are also strictly reptiles. Taxonomy, however, is never that simple. Note that I mindfully constructed the statement as "Reptile /= dinosaur" and not vice versa.

    I see you recognize that cold-bloodedness is not a requirement for a "reptile" (one may speak of modern sea turtles' quasi-endothermy, though their metabolisms fluctuate unlike strictly endothermic animals). There is of course contention over the status of sauropod dinosaurs like Brachiosaurus (quasi-warm-bloodedness via gigantothermy), which you brought out to compare to Chikorita. (As an aside, even Meganium wouldn't have the same issues with excess body heat, at less than 2 meters/6 feet in height).

    So, it's just that you specifically brought out Brachiosaurus to compare to Chikorita, and then declared that this was the first time two or more starters in a set were based on warm-blooded animals, which is not entirely true as long as one holds that Chikorita's line are supposed to be sauropod dinosaurs. Of course, anyone's entitled to imagine any real-world life form into a given Pokemon. Just checking your real-world facts.

    BTW, Wikipedia is not the final word on anything. Far from it. But you knew that already.

    I saw all the final evolved stages on Serebii.net and I didn't really like any of them. So, I'll just go for the grass-type, Naetle, because that's what I always start with.

    the grass turtle. i was originally going to choose the pengui. but after seeing its final evolution which looks like a robot i decided the evolution of the turtle was the only one out of three which looked ok.

    I am going with Hikozaru.

    It came down to Pocchama's moves. I felt like it didn't have enough good moves, and plus I needed something Fire that was dual-type.

    I'll still get to see Pocchama's final forms, and I imagine I can breed Hikozaru's final form and trade the babies for Pocchama and Naetoru later on.

    I think I already voted that I'm going with Naetle. But that will be in my Diamond version.

    Since voting, I've ordered a copy of Pearl that should be here the end of this week. I'm thinking I'll go with Hikozaru. I'm not too fond of it, but so many people I know plan to go with Pocchama when the english version comes out, that I figure I can always get that from them later.. and I'll be able to trade them a Hikozaru and a Naetle.
