I don't have a 3DS either, but I am so excited for this game and also Animal Crossing New Leaf.
I love the way you've drawn the new starters here, they look so cute and huggable. The way you've done shading and hilights is really good and makes the Pokémon look more realistic, but the thick lines make them look cartoony. I think this blend works well.
i can't believe how quickly the new gen has appeared and inn 3D too! i think i'll be choosing Chespin as my my starter. i've chosen the grass starter in every single pokemon I've ever played so i see no point in breaking tradition. they all look super cute though
