So since it's release time, it's time for a proper X and Y Discussion thread. First off let's list our starters: Now initially, you can only choose of the three new ones I chose Froakie(i've always enjoyed water starters) Now after your first gym, you get the exp share. There has been a major change to it though, the EXP share is no longer a held item, it's now a key item and an on/off type of item, and exp is shared with all of the pokemon in your party. I'm still wondering what egg group Froakie is. I know it does not share one with squirt, I just attempted that.
