We all know that there are three starter Pokemon in every region in which each one contains a type - either leaf, fire, or water. But have you ever thought about which one you'd choose if only one choice could be made? :0

-> Which of the 12 starter Pokemon is your all-time favourite and why? - Click one and let's see the results! =)

This was real hard to decide, I gave it a lot of thought and I choose Cyndaquil, that was the Pokemon I really warmed up to in Gold v. The Johto Pokemon were really eye-catching and I loved giving Typhlosion haircuts in the under-pass. ^^

Click one? Is there a poll? o0

Anyway~ I used to really like Mudkip before the fad started up, which only made me like it even more, but now it's Piplup, which I originally hated until I was given one to write with/on/about. :>

Torchic, who I've had an affinity for ever since I first played Ruby and Sapphire, back in 2003. I do quite like Piplup as well, though.

You might want to change Croconaw to Totodile. Once its changed I'll vote for that. I like Totodiles because they're energetic and look cool. xD

I was stuck between charmander and chimchar but in the end I chose charmander because its
the first pokemon I ever liked and its a bit cuter than chimchar.

My fav. starter pokemon is Chikorita because its a strong grass type and I like jhoto pokemon! :)

I voted chikorita as my favourite. I always liked taking grass starters because there arent enough decent grass types, plus I think grass types are underrated, such as in my experience when people want to beat a water type they would normally use electric over grass, so people counter by using water/rock/ground/electric/etc.

But if I had to choose one to use, I would pick chimchar, because out of final evolutions I like infernape best, and I like the dual fire/fighting.

OH KRABBY. O.O Thanks for pointing that out Decypher, I guess I wasn't thinking when I typed that in. I would change it but there's no poll edit option so I can't. =C I've edited the first post though, stating that Croconaw is actually meant to be Totodile, so it's ok to vote for it now, everyone'll know that it's actually Totodile. =) Thanks again. ^^;

Hmm... After much debate I chose... Turtwig. BUT, in my eyes, Turtwig ties with Cyndaquil. The only reason I chose him over Cyndaquil is because of his eventual duel-type. As an added bonus that no body want, here are the rest in order of greatest to not wanted. Turtwig - Cyndaquil - Totodile - Piplup - Charmander - Squirtle - Chikorita - Bulbasaur - Mudkip - Torchik - Treeko - Chimchar Why that order? Does it really matter?

WTf? it's totodile not crocnaw xD ^^;
Well that's my fav… although as for their final evos it'd be Swampert then Torterra.

Charmander....since the start of Pokemon, I've always liked this cute little guy.
I just like it's looks and everything about. And besides, it was the first pokemon I ever liked 8D

Its definitely between the three Kanto starters, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander. They are all so cute!

*Firestar*
April 29th, 2008, 11:40 AM
I chose turtwig because it is soo cute!:D But Swampert is my fav evolved starter:D

MetalMEB
April 29th, 2008, 11:45 AM
Squirtle is my #1 fav, but I like all the Kanto and Johto starters, and I also like Turtwig.


Don't care a whole lot for the 3rd gen, starters...not that I don't like them or anything.. Its just... I dunno what it is =P

Um...if I had to choose one of the Hoenn starters, I'd say Torchic. Before I started going online and going on forums, though, I would've said Mudkip but the "so i herd u liek mudkipz" thing just made me not like it as much >_>

Cydiquil if anything. which is very strange for me, because i usually never like fire pokemon (excluding Ninetails also). As for other regions; probably Squirtle for Kanto, Treeko for Hoenn, and Piplup for Sihno (though i havnt played d/p).

Although in general i dont like using starters; they seem to have a cheep advantage of them over other pokemon. That, and if you only train your starters, you absolutely screwed when you get to your rival. I usually pick my favorite pokemon from that game thats found somewhat early on in the game, so i can actually train it and whatnot.

Mudkip! :D

He was my starter in my Sapphire and in my Red Rescue Team!

Not to mention he rocks! XD

My favorite is charmander because it can evolve in to charmeleon and then Charizard!!!

I have to go with Mudkip because it has powerful moves and it's a duel type. Also Moonlit Umbreon contact a Mod to see if they can fix the poll for you.

Cherrim

Croconaw changed to Totodile. ;) Next time just PM a mod or higher to edit the poll for you, no problem!

As for the poll itself, that's such a tough question! I think I might have to say Charmander. Out of all the starters I've had, it's the one where I actually like all of its evolutions. I love Charmander, I like Charmeleon and I love Charizard.

With all the other starters I've had (Totodile, Torchic, Piplup), there have been parts of it's evolution line that I just didn't like. I didn't like Feraligatr, I didn't like Combusken, I didn't like any of Piplup's evolutions... and as for any other starters that I didn't personally pick? The same thing with them. XD; So Charmander wins overall.

Piplup, Grotle and Infernape!

April 30th, 2008, 02:50 PM
I would have to say Squirtle, because it evolves into my favorite non-legendary Pokemon, Wartortle.

Toastri
April 30th, 2008, 03:57 PM
I'd pick Treecko. I am a BIG fan of grass pokemons. My second one would be Mudkip.

lucysaur
April 30th, 2008, 04:26 PM
my order of preference is:
Squirtle
Bulbasaur (hence the name)
Midkip
Totodile
Charmander
Piplup
Cyndaquil
Chikorita
Chimchar
Treeko
Turtwig

For some completely illogical reason I love squirtles. I'm not usually a grass pokemon fan but theres something about bulbasaur, i like the concept of blooming into a flower. I always thought charmander was overrated until all the other fire types came out. Charizard owns all of them!

I'm going to have to go with Charmander. I've always loved the way he looks and I loved him in the anime. :)

Thankyou so much Lightning, I really appreciate it! I'll be sure to inform a moderator next time I mess up on a poll like this. =D Thanks again.

I can't really decide. Bulbasaur would have to be my favorite back in the day, but with the introduction of turtwig I can't decide. I love turtwig because its a turtle, and unlike Squirtle, it's a water/ground, an awesome typing since I prefer the grass starters and natural earthquake is pretty cool. Of course I like things like Cyndaquil and Squirtle, but really Bulbasaur and Turtwig are my two favorite. Really can't decide.

So... I herd U liek Mudkipz?

Yes, heck yes I do.

I've always been a big mudkip fan. Before third gen it as Totodile & Charmander. However, in today's circle of life... Mudkip is my favorite. It looks awesome, is famous, and evolves into one of my favorite bulky waters. :D Always be mudkip fan. ;D

Squirtle - It's actually my favourite Pokemon

May 3rd, 2008, 02:15 AM
Cyndaquil. I usually go for a fire type starter, and I just think that Cyndaquil looks best.

at least reply on the question and NOT your favourite starter of each generation. he's asking for your favourite water, grass and fire starter of all generations. so you'll have to reply one fire starter, one water starter, one grass starter.

hothead
May 10th, 2008, 02:34 PM
Ok see now the problem with what your saying is that it all depends on the trainer because say you pick sqritle in the first region you can catch othere fire and grass pokemon so really its more up to you as an indavidualy i personally think
Kanto Charmander
Jhoto tododile
hohen torchic or swampet
Shino turtwig and chimchar
but foir some one else it could be totally differerent so just go for the one that you think is the best

Cyndaquil the best. It has high stats and has no weakness..... Even water.....

May 10th, 2008, 04:41 PM
Mudkip~! Its so cute, how could you not like it. And its ground/water dual type is incredibly awesome. <D Not to mention that cute fin upon its head. =D Its the first starter that really appealed to me enough to think, " I've GOT to get THAT! " for the previous generations, I had a hard time deciding which starter I wanted to pick at the beginning of the game. xD;

Superjub
May 10th, 2008, 04:53 PM
My favourite is Torchic as it can become in my opinion an awesome fire and fighting type. :)

Torchic! It was my first ever Pokemon, and I love it to pieces.

Cid
May 10th, 2008, 10:37 PM
I'd choose Piplup since I'm at the 4th Generation right now (I'm playing Diamond)...

Why? Well, maybe because he has balanced Attack and Defense and he can also learn Ice-type attacks, like any other Water-type Pokemon. Also, his final evolution, Empoleon, is part-Steel type, which has resistance to Dragon-types...

Cyndaquil...

Although it's slowly changing to Totodile...

Barkovitch
May 11th, 2008, 12:36 PM
Gotta go with Bulbasaur, although to me all of the Kanto Starters are pretty even, possibly just due to nostalgic value. Not a fan of Venusaur, but Ivysaur is one of my favorite first generation Pokemon. (On a strange note, although I picked Bulbasaur, I like every stage of both the Squirtle and Charmander lines.)

Mattysaurus
May 11th, 2008, 07:30 PM
I love Squirtle because it has great defense and evolves into a pokemon(Blastoise) with hydro-jets.
