Well I'll start the discussion off by saying a new set of starters. Except with the typical grass/fire/water types. Starting with specific starters make that region. Kanto starters are iconic to that region, same with Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and so on, starting with one of the usual trios will ruin the feel of a whole new region to explore! Regarding what Pokemon they are is another discussion.

One of there evolutions are cute


I'm not sure if I was meant to put this here but does anyone agree with me

Looking for our own starters could be interesting, but I agree with the restrictions mentioned above: Only 3-stage evolvers and the main types Fire, Water and Grass. That however limits us to very few choices on the currently implemented Pokemon:
Fire: Magby; Litwick
Water: Poliwag; Horsea; Spheal
Grass: Oddish; Bellsprout; Hoppip; Seedot; Sewaddle
Of those only Spheal and Hoppip don't require special conditions to evolve to their final stage (Sewaddle's high happiness requirement isn't that hard though). I think you shouldn't get into a situation where your starter can't evolve (for whatever reason) - so even if we were to use one of these, we'd have to come up with a system that guarantees that you can use it to its fullest...

I'd always keep the option to have any of the existing starters though. Otherwise we may face the wrath of the rage kiddies:

Yeah, I did think of this, but if we think back to Yellow we did have a Pikachu as a starter, as well as Blue having an Eevee. But im only mentioning this and not saying wanting that to be the case.
If we were to pick one of the previous starter trios I would suggest using Sinnoh or maybe Johto?
Just a thought Im going to throw out, again its not my preference, What about having the starters from different regions? So for example, Cyndiquil, Snivy and Mudkip? (Sorry if I get hate for suggesting this, its just an idea)

"New starters based on similar type relations" means something like Fight-Psychic-Dark?

My personal favorite would still be choosing from all 15 original starters. That's way more than any Pokemon game, but then again, we could just have the Prof poking fun at the other regions for offering so little choice...

alternately we could choose from a list of 15 types (2 will miss out) and use the starter screen for it by using the PixelExtras /starter command (unless i haven't added it yet?)

The question from that though is which types miss out and which Pokemon to have as starters

Yep, although without the type immunity, so say posion / grass / ground.
