When building your team of Temtem it’s important to create a balanced team. Your starter is one of the most important decisions you’ll make early on in the game and could impact your decision to start a new game. Luckily, you have us to help you make that oh-so-important decision of who your first Temtem will be. Here’s everything you need to know to decide which starter you should choose in Temtem.
Which Starter You Should Choose in Temtem
Since the game is nearly one week old at this point it would be pretty foolish to declare any starter as the undisputed best choice. Instead, we’ll focus on the pros and cons of each and let you decide what’s best for you.
Houchic is a great option to get you an early leg up on the competition. So many of the first Temtem you face in the wild and battles are Neutral-types that are weak against Mental-type moves. It also hits the Melee-type starter, Smazee, with x2 damage.
Unfortunately, Houchic won’t give you a huge advantage at any of the Dojos, but the attacks it learns are some of the most powerful ones in the game. It’s also the best starter in Temtem in terms of speed and special attack.
Better yet, Houchic is an adorably tiny purple creature that is pretty much the Temtem version of baby Yoda. It has very strong mental powers but it’s lacking in terms of physical defense.
Overall, Houchic seems to be a bit of a glass cannon with its high special attack and low physical defense. Paired with the right Temtem, Houchic can be one of the most dangerous attackers in the game.
