Which team are you siding with for Pokémon Sun and Moon? All three starters have just been announced, and each fighter is waiting for you to choose! Read below if you’re on board with Team Litten. And check out our Team Popplio and Team Rowlet articles if you want to check out the competition!

This morning we were treated to a ton of info from the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Moon game for the 3DS. Perhaps the most important reveal of all, however, was the announcement of this generation’s three starter Pokémon. Now, it’s clear that these three are perhaps the cutest starter Pokémon we’ve seen since Gen III, but when we take a closer look, it’s obvious that only one of these Pokémon will take trainers all the way to the Elite Four and beyond. That Pokémon is Litten, the cutest Fire-type starter this side of Cyndaquil.


Coming in at one foot and four inches tall and weighing in at nine and a half pounds, the Fire Cat Pokémon is clearly a force to be reckoned with. This adorable little blazeball uses absolutely everything at its disposal to its advantage. It’s oily, flammable fur collects in its stomach as it cleans itself, which is later used to shoot fiery hairballs at its opponents. Litten, just like a real cat, keeps its emotions on the inside, always showing a cool exterior and remaining level-headed.


Normally, I’d pick a Water-type starter, but Litten has me won over by a long shot. I love cats, and Litten has already proved that it is clearly the most superior cat Pokémon to ever exist by channeling that nonchalant attitude present in almost every feline I’ve ever met. Every other cat Pokémon to come before it is simply a disappointment compared to my new fiery friend.

If you agree with me, make sure to let us know why Litten is clearly better than Rowlet and Popplio, and remember to keep an eye out for Litten’s red hot debut in Pokémon Sun and Moon, releasing November 18, 2016!
