Oshawott is the new water starter pokemon from pokemon black and white

I think ...My opinion... Tht tht pokemon is the most RETARDED looking thing in the universe I mean FFS Bidoof Is cooler looking tht that UGL creature the other two dont loom to bad (they actully dont look like a joke) But honestly I dont see waht you see it tht thing EWWWW >.<.... Ok rant over its just my opinion ... go for it if you like it :P

I think a humanized version would look infinitely better than the actual thing, as well... let's put it simply, the game looks immense, but the starters look like epic fail ^^;
