you i like \:D/Well, X/Y is going to be my first Pokémon game on the 3DS*(Happy now,Blazevoir?). If I can't find Growlithe in the tall grass, I guess i could use the trade system to get one.
so far my team is Fennikin, Charmander, Torchic, Arcanine, Tryrantrum and my 6th i'm thinking might be Skrelp. but depending on how bad things turns out with 4 fire types, might swap one out for Pangoro
still unsure if Growlithe/Arcanine is part of the Kalos pokedex, but if it isn't, i can always just transfer from White 2
