10.05.99 More new Pokémon More artwork

   The three Pokémon in the top row are the new starting Pokémon. Instead of selecting the pool of Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur, the hero gets to choose from the anteater-like fire Pokémon on the left, the leafy grass Pokémon in the middle, and the water-based alligator Pokémon on the right. (The original starting Pokémon are still available for capture later in the game; you're just not given the chance to start with them.)

   The two Pokémon in the bottom row are simply two of the 100 or so new Pokémon up for grabs.
