View Full Version : D/P/Pt: Who was your starter?
February 20th, 2011, 02:24 PM
Mine was Piplup, now Empoleon level 100 (my most powerful) :) what was yours?
February 20th, 2011, 02:27 PM
Mine was, Chimchar! INFERNAPE FTW!
February 20th, 2011, 02:33 PM
Piplup, just because it was the cutest of the three. Also because Empoleon is a water/steel type which I thought was pretty epic.
February 20th, 2011, 03:05 PM
I choose piplup because I didn't like turtwig or chimchar plus I think empoleon is pretty neat.
Magmaruby and Aquasapphire
February 20th, 2011, 04:05 PM
I picked Piplup because it's evolution :)
Actually I'm glad I did as the piplup I picked ended up being female :)
February 20th, 2011, 04:29 PM
Piplup. I love Empoleon and it's cute!
But I traded it for a Blastoise :(
February 20th, 2011, 04:52 PM
Piplup in Platinum. Then Chimchar for Diamond.
February 20th, 2011, 05:13 PM
I've chosen Piplup in Pearl... I think I'll get Chimchar in Platinum...
February 20th, 2011, 05:17 PM
My username should give it away that I chose Piplup! When I got platinum I chose piplup again and now I have two amazing Empoleons. Then when I restarted platinum I chose turtwig, and I might restart it again and I'll choose chimchar this time. Chose Chimchar on diamond but I only played diamond for like five minutes at most.
February 20th, 2011, 07:46 PM
Diamond: all 3 starters in separate playthroughs.
Platinum: Piplup, then Turtwig
February 20th, 2011, 08:43 PM
I chose piplup because water starters are the best.
February 20th, 2011, 09:02 PM
Chimchar in Pearl and Platinum, and Piplup in Diamond.
February 20th, 2011, 09:32 PM
turtwig for diamond and chimchar for platinum
February 21st, 2011, 08:57 AM
When I first played Pearl I picked Chimchar and hated it. In Platinum I picked Torterra and it's one of the strongest Pokemon I have.
February 21st, 2011, 10:06 AM
On Diamond I picked Piplup, and on Platinum I picked Turtwig, as I dislike Chimchar and it's evolutions.
February 21st, 2011, 10:28 AM
Mine was Piplup, it is too my fav starter from shinnoh.
February 21st, 2011, 10:34 AM
I actually loved all the starters this Gen, they are all useful in battle~ <33 Good Stats, good typing, good movepool~
So I have played with them all. :3
My first choice was Chimchar, however, as a Solo run is always easiest with the fire starter~
February 21st, 2011, 10:44 AM
Piplup for me. It can take a few hits and dish out some powerful attacks. :3
February 21st, 2011, 11:21 AM
Piplup ALL night. I always had a water starter fetish. :D
February 21st, 2011, 11:41 AM
I chose piplup. There's something about the water starters that always make me want to choose them :3
February 21st, 2011, 09:59 PM
I have a habit of choosing Fire-type starters, so I chose Chimchar in my Diamond Version.
February 22nd, 2011, 07:08 AM
It depends on what runthrough you're talking about, lol.
My most used starter was Piplup though(:
Elite Overlord LeSabre™
February 22nd, 2011, 08:09 AM
Pipup, not because of Piplup itself, but because Empoleon is epic.
February 22nd, 2011, 12:44 PM
I have Diamond, Pearl and Platinum, so i have one playthrough with each, but my favourite was Piplup by far.
February 22nd, 2011, 12:47 PM
Piplup :P Always choose water.
February 22nd, 2011, 02:35 PM
I chose Chimchar. I don't really remember why though O.o
February 23rd, 2011, 02:49 AM
I chose Chimchar too..
Even in the other versions, i usually prefer fire type starters..
February 23rd, 2011, 03:51 AM
Turtwig. It's definitely my favourite of the three. My sisters both chose Chimchar, mainly because the animé Piplup was the single most annoying Pokémon ever created.
February 23rd, 2011, 01:23 PM
Piplup and all his pimpin' glory
February 23rd, 2011, 01:51 PM
Chimchar, you dont find many fire types in the begining of the game, and its a fire type that has fighting moves. Double Threat
February 23rd, 2011, 02:09 PM
My favorite among all of them was Turtwig, well grass types usually do.
February 23rd, 2011, 02:26 PM
Mine was Piplup. I have this thing where I always start a new game with a water type.
February 23rd, 2011, 03:12 PM
I've restarted my Pearl game enough to have all three starters, but my first and always my favorite of the three is piplup. It's so adorable, its a penguin, and Empoleon is great. Turtwig is pretty awesome too, as well as Torterra; but I never really liked Chimchar. :/
February 23rd, 2011, 07:29 PM
I chose chimchar in diamond then turtwig
and piplup in platinum
out of all of them I prefer piplup
February 24th, 2011, 06:02 AM
i chose piplup ....i have a habit of choosing water-types for starters they're quite reliable and the evoloutions are epic.......
February 24th, 2011, 11:05 AM
I chose Turtwig in Diamond because... a good friend of mine suggested me to pick it and he actually chose it himself as well.
When I finally had Torterra, I knew why he said that it was the best of the three. Grass/Ground is really convenient.
In Platinum I took Chimchar but restarted after the first badge and took Turtwig again. I'm not sure why, I just really like Turtwig/Grotle/Torterra <3
February 24th, 2011, 11:11 AM
I really don't like the Sinnoh Starters, but I remember choosing Turtwig.
I think of Piplup as really lame, due to the anime, and I can't stand Chimchar.
Torterra's quite cool.
February 24th, 2011, 03:46 PM
I usually choose Chimchar.
But in my most recent playthrough of Platinum, I picked Piplup. Wanted to try out the blue metal penguin for a change.
February 24th, 2011, 04:00 PM
I picked Turtwig, which was different for me since I usually pick the water starter. Plus, I thought Torterra's typing was cool and now it's one of my favorites.
February 24th, 2011, 04:17 PM
Chimchar FTW <3 LVL 100 Male C:
February 24th, 2011, 05:23 PM
I usually choose the water types because of their reliability especially in the beginning of the game and the rock type gym leaders. But in my play through of Platinum I went with Turtwig and I love it <3
February 24th, 2011, 06:42 PM
February 24th, 2011, 08:40 PM
My starter was Piplup, it was easier to train.
February 26th, 2011, 01:22 PM
I like Turtwig but it's too slow for me and since I can't stand Chimchar I always pick Piplup and if I'm looking for a challenging playthrough I'll go with Turtwig. I have never chosen Chimchar since Diamond and Pearl came out in the first place.
February 26th, 2011, 01:51 PM
Piplup, huge mistake. I wish I'd picked turtwig..
February 26th, 2011, 02:25 PM
Chimchar! I think its the best because of its fighting type and fire type. Also you dont mind many fire types until later on in the game.
February 26th, 2011, 02:27 PM
My starter is Turtwig because I like him better than the other ones. I like his moves, his disign, and how he acts.
< Snorlax >
February 26th, 2011, 02:45 PM
Every single one. Now how can everybody beat which starter is the best... Because I like all of them!
February 26th, 2011, 07:47 PM
I chose chimar. Because I wanted a firefighting type pokemon. I want to try turwig someday though.
February 26th, 2011, 07:58 PM
chimchar line is good for the grass gym, the ghost gym, the steel gym, and though I havent tried yet due to charger failure I'm sure it will destroy the E4 bug trainer and do decent against the E4 fire trainer and on a side note after staravia sweeps the fighting gym up until that annoying lucario, monferno destroys it
February 27th, 2011, 01:01 AM
Turtwig, mainly because I've usually picked a fire-type on previous game and wanted to try something different this time around... and Chimchar just didn't appeal to me.
March 4th, 2011, 06:12 PM
My starter was Turtwig just like Paul, because his pro.
March 4th, 2011, 08:41 PM
Mine was Chimchar, because Infernape is a beastly tank!
Watch out! Infernape is mowing down gym leaders!
March 4th, 2011, 09:24 PM
J'ai choisi Chimchar, parce que Chimchar est indomptable. ^_^
March 4th, 2011, 09:56 PM
My starter was Piplup for Diamond and Platinum. I always go with the water starter in my "main" game (Diamond, in this case), and I just felt like going with it again in Platinum.
Turtwig was my starter in Pearl, because I thought it looked cool and I wanted to try using a grass starter for once.
March 4th, 2011, 11:03 PM
Chimchar, but I use every sinnoh starters very often.
March 5th, 2011, 02:18 PM
Both copies of Platinum-Chimchar
In all cases, I had a tough time choosing.
March 5th, 2011, 02:24 PM
I picked Turtwig, I adored it's design and the typing and stat spread of it's final evolution.
March 5th, 2011, 03:01 PM
I picked Turtwig in Diamond. I'm not the biggest fan of this generation's starters, though. I'm not sure what it is; they just didn't sit right with me I suppose. I liked many other Pokemon of this generation, but not the starters.
March 5th, 2011, 10:39 PM
I chose Chimchar cause I always pick the fire starters.
This time around I think I'll pick Piplup though
March 5th, 2011, 10:51 PM
I chose plipup because i can say confidently empleon is the best starter i ever had!
March 6th, 2011, 02:10 AM
Chimchar, every time. It was easier to get through the game during replays with him. <3
March 6th, 2011, 05:20 AM
I've played with both Piplup and Chimchar on my diamond file. I think i preferred Piplup, although to be honest i didn't really like any of them xD
when i get my 3DS i'll be getting Platinum, so then I think i'll play through with Turtwig :)
March 6th, 2011, 05:21 AM
I Had Chimchar Now Infernape (My Best)
Pokemon Trainer Touko
March 6th, 2011, 05:24 AM
I chose Chimchar because I always pick the fire type starter.
March 6th, 2011, 08:36 AM
Male <- ONLY MALES ALLOWED IN MY TEAMS... I always save outside the lake to assure this.
No Nicknames, originality is the key.
March 6th, 2011, 12:26 PM
When I first got Pearl, I chose Turtwig. I had two friends at the time of the Diamond and Pearl release. One was gonna choose Chimchar and the other was gonna choose Piplup, so I had to choose Turtwig. Then I discovered wi-fi and Mickey my Turtwig got sent off to wi-fi space. o_O; My two friends and I got separated due to unforseen circumstances as well. So I restatrted the game a million times over...and over, and now I have the full dex and will never restart again. The end. Dumb story huh. But if I were to do it all over i'd choose piplup. Don't know why? *shurg* Empleon is a cool Pokemon I guess.
March 6th, 2011, 02:39 PM
March 9th, 2011, 07:46 AM
My starter was Twiggy my Turtwig, now a Torterra.
I always start out with the grass type starter on my first run of any new generation game, and Torterra is awesome so I haven't restarted.. yet :D
March 9th, 2011, 08:55 AM
Mine was turtwig but I hesitated with Twiggy - I don't like Chimchar
March 9th, 2011, 11:06 AM
My starter was Piplup. I thought the other two were ugly so I didn't want them, not that it mattered because Piplup got ugly after it evolved anyway lol
March 11th, 2011, 08:05 PM
I chose Piplup.
I always picked Water, in every generation, except 2nd gen.
March 11th, 2011, 09:55 PM
I first chose chimchar but then i noticed the suprising lack of super cool water pokemon and over abundance of awesome fighting pokemon in the 4gen so i changed it to piplup and got me a houndour (trade), luxray, lucario and togekiss. yay
March 11th, 2011, 10:43 PM
in diamond it was piplup...pearl was chimchar and plat was turtwig. i try to use each starter once tho i restarted my plat multiple times just because i like replaying it
March 12th, 2011, 09:10 AM
Always pick Fire. :)
March 12th, 2011, 08:16 PM
turtwig, well ive often always picked the grass type pokemon for everygame i have. Its level 100 now.
March 12th, 2011, 08:19 PM
Piplup. I love his final evolution. :'D
March 12th, 2011, 10:17 PM
Turtwig, because Torterra does pretty good in all the stats I like.
March 13th, 2011, 08:47 PM
I chose Chimchar in my games, because there isn't really a decent fire types in my opinion. I goofed on Platinum because I wanted a Turtwig first but decided to go along with it since this was my first play through on Platinum.
March 13th, 2011, 09:57 PM
I chose Piplup, 'cuz it's for HM slave :P
Main team with Staraptor, Gardevoir, Rotom Mow, Floatzel and Rapidash
The Ice Type
March 14th, 2011, 01:44 AM
When I started my Platinum game, I picked Turtwig. It does have great defense and can take quite a bit. Though now I have all three starters and I have to say Piplup should've been my choice instead.
On the other hand, I'm glad I bred my sister's Pokemon on my game because now I have a female Empoleon, which is quite rare according to Serebii :3
March 14th, 2011, 06:54 AM
I picked Turtwig. His design is insanely good (like other Gen IV starters' who are actually cute and seem to be connected to each other more than other starter groups), I love turtles and his stats are pretty good. Torterra's STAB is awesome, way better than other Grass-type starters'. One reason I like Torterra so much is because he's the slowest of all and thus the fastest under Trick Room. But think his base Speed should be abysmal, like 35 or 40 instead of 56.
On the other hand, I'm glad I bred my sister's Pokemon on my game because now I have a female Empoleon, which is quite rare according to Serebii :3All starters have a gender ratio of 1♀:7♂, so all female starters, regardless of its species, are rare.
March 14th, 2011, 08:07 AM
I chose piplup cause empoleon is awesome=D
March 14th, 2011, 09:31 AM
Pilup, because Blue is awesome. That, and Pilup having the most unique features of the three.
March 14th, 2011, 10:49 AM
Turtwig in Diamond.
Chimchar in Pearl.
Piplup in Platinum.
I like choosing all the starters no matter which one I like the best.
March 14th, 2011, 11:04 AM
I got chimchar in a trade later on, but since i used Torchic in Sapphire i wanted to use the oppsite in sinnoh. And i wasnt a fan of playing another fire/fighting
March 15th, 2011, 09:07 AM
PIPLUP! level 100 FTW!!! so hard not to evolve it but its worth it now!
March 15th, 2011, 01:41 PM
Piplup ALL night. I always had a water starter fetish. :D
Dude. I LOVE THE REGULAR SHOW :DDDDDDDD What a crackerjack idea xD
March 15th, 2011, 01:57 PM
What is a PIplup it's the best
March 15th, 2011, 02:06 PM
I recall having chosen Turtwig when I had platinum.
March 15th, 2011, 02:47 PM
Piplup! Usually am a Grass-Type starter, but wanted to be different this time. Empoleon looks sweet too.
Henry The Dragon
March 15th, 2011, 06:31 PM
I picked Piplup because I always pick the water type starters.
Plus, Piplup's evolutions look WAYYY better than the others.
March 17th, 2011, 09:53 AM
I have tried all the starters at one point or another...but Chimchar was definitely my favorite.
March 18th, 2011, 02:40 PM
piplup... steel/water DUH
March 18th, 2011, 08:25 PM
Chimchar. The fire pokemon had always been my first choice; mostly because the fire starter always had the best looking evolved forms.
download pokemon black (http://www.downloadpokemonblack.com/)
March 19th, 2011, 03:06 PM
PIPLUP! That guy is so cute! And his evolutions are awesome! He's always been at least tied as my fav pokemon.
March 24th, 2011, 04:52 PM
In Pearl I chose Piplup
In Platinum I chose Turtwig
March 24th, 2011, 08:04 PM
Main Platinum: Chimchar, now Infernape Lv100
Secondary Platinum: Turtwig, now Torterra Lv78
Pearl: Piplup, on a "reset" and am not yet that far in
Diamond: Turtwig, again on a "reset" only am rather far but have not evolved Tutwig (in PC)
March 30th, 2011, 04:51 PM
I chose a Piplup because a water type starter is a good thing for me except for the first generation
April 1st, 2011, 08:18 AM
First time in Diamond, I picked Chimchar. I picked Piplup for both my first Pearl and Platinum playthroughs. Probably my favorite of the starters...Empoleon, that is. I don't really like the Sinnoh starters very much. :( Especially the middle evolutions, yuck.
April 2nd, 2011, 12:18 PM
If I remember correctly, it was Piplup. :)
April 2nd, 2011, 12:51 PM
My one was turtiwg in diamond.
April 2nd, 2011, 01:18 PM
Turtwig for Pearl and Platinum (my fave starter behind Charmander), and Chimchar for my new playthrough of Pearl (having restarted it after 4 years. That playthrough will be missed).
April 8th, 2011, 06:08 PM
First gen: Charmander
Second gen: Totodile
Third gen: Mudkip
Fourth gen: Chimchar
April 9th, 2011, 02:13 PM
Piplup. I mainly tend to chose the water starters since they're the ones that I love to train.
April 9th, 2011, 06:49 PM
I'm sure I went with Chimchar the first time I went through Diamond and Piplup in Pearl.
April 9th, 2011, 10:52 PM
I chose Piplup in Diamond,Turtwig in Pearl and Chimchar in Platinum. O.e
Spending money for these games FTW!
April 9th, 2011, 11:32 PM
Turtwig in platinum (which I chose yesterday). I didn't really like the others.
April 10th, 2011, 12:52 AM
Chimchar in Diamond and Plat for me.
April 10th, 2011, 06:57 PM
Piplup. Because I always choose the water starters. It also is easily the cutest starter ever. lol
April 11th, 2011, 06:55 AM
When I first played it when I bought the game I picked Piplup, but in my most recent playthrough I picked Chimchar because I haven't picked him before.
April 11th, 2011, 07:56 AM
I chose Piplup in D/P...
I love how Empoleon destroyed everything. :P
In Platinum, I chose Chimchar...
Infernape actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. ;)
April 11th, 2011, 08:13 AM
I choose water every time! (´･ω･`) Squirtle, Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup~
April 11th, 2011, 02:17 PM
I chose chimchar since I didn't feel like there will be heaps of good fighting type pokemon early in the game.
April 11th, 2011, 03:19 PM
I chose Turtwig in Diamond and Piplup in Platinum. I prefer Piplup.
April 11th, 2011, 03:34 PM
torrtarra in platinum what it is doing working in mom's house lol
level 100 move razor leaf earthquake giga drain and rock climb
April 12th, 2011, 05:04 AM
Currently playing plat, chose piplup
April 12th, 2011, 12:00 PM
chimchar because the fire starteris basically the best !!!
April 12th, 2011, 01:29 PM
The best offence is a good defense.
And it gets STAB on Earthquake.
April 13th, 2011, 06:04 AM
I started with Turtwig in Pearl because it is the coolest and Piplup in Platinum because it is the second coolest.
April 13th, 2011, 06:43 AM
Piplup all the way. As far as I remember I chose Chimchar for a couple of times, but I don't like it's evolutions. And I've never chosen Turtwig for some reason o_O.
April 13th, 2011, 08:30 PM
Turtwig was my starter in Gen 4.
April 14th, 2011, 10:22 AM
Piplup for both Diamond and Platinum...:pokeball:
April 15th, 2011, 05:36 PM
I picked Piplup. They're absolutely adorable.
April 17th, 2011, 07:25 PM
Well, the first I started with in each;
Platinum: Turtwig (Piplup the second and most recent times through.)
April 20th, 2011, 05:26 AM
They were all the most disgusting, ugly starters I had ever seen so I got turtwig and released him and hacked myself in a charmander.
April 20th, 2011, 06:28 AM
Chimchar in Platinum, two times.
April 22nd, 2011, 01:05 PM
I picked Chimchar. Not because I like it any more than the other starters (all three are terrible), but because there are no decent fire-types to battle the Elite Four with aside from Infernape, so I sort of had to pick it.
April 24th, 2011, 06:08 PM
I picked Chimchar in all of my games, mostly because I hate Piplup and Tutwig.
April 24th, 2011, 07:37 PM
hey yall i had chimchar who ended up bein a lvl 93 infernape but i dont have him anymore i wish i did :(
April 26th, 2011, 02:19 PM
Well I started with a Piplup, becasue usually on my first playthrough i always pick the water pokemon because later on it would learn surf, and to me that would have been a powerful move.
April 26th, 2011, 02:59 PM
Chimchar, and then I very quickly got myself a Magikarp and a Kricketot.
I miss Typhlosion/Feraligatr/Meganium.
G/S/C are forever instilled in my heart.
April 27th, 2011, 12:36 AM
I always use fire types
April 27th, 2011, 02:56 PM
Turtwig was my favorite starter for Gen IV. Of course I choose it!
April 27th, 2011, 03:28 PM
I've tried them all, but Chimchar was my first and also my favorite. Piplup is a fairly close second.
April 27th, 2011, 03:50 PM
My first [and favorite] starter was Piplup. <3 I restarted many different times though, so I tried out Chimchar and Turtwig too. They weren't the same. ;____;
April 27th, 2011, 11:35 PM
I've used all three but to be honest Torterra was my favorite. |D Super useful in-game and just generally awesome. :>
April 27th, 2011, 11:58 PM
Turtwig was my starter and the very first time I ever used a grass type. Gen 1-3 I used fire type starter.
April 28th, 2011, 02:34 PM
Turtwig was my starter for every playthrough.
April 28th, 2011, 04:44 PM
Chimchar. I always go with the Fire-type, at least the first time around. Grass and Water types are always easy enough to find in the wild.
April 29th, 2011, 04:42 AM
Haha, well, I chose Piplup first time in Diamond...and then again in Platinum. I've used them all (although Torterra has never defeated the Pokémon League), and the last time I played through Diamond, I chose Infernape, then used Empoleon as well (traded).
April 29th, 2011, 04:46 AM
I picked Piplup. 'nough said.
April 29th, 2011, 07:35 AM
Piplup. Though I never restarted Pearl, so technically it's been my only Sinnoh starter. Ever!
April 29th, 2011, 12:58 PM
I've never tried out Turtwig to be honest. :( I always went with either Piplup with Chimchar, which both did well for my team.
April 29th, 2011, 02:50 PM
Piplup. I've always loved the water type Pokemon
April 29th, 2011, 02:54 PM
Piplup. Steel Typed Starter? Sign me up.
April 29th, 2011, 07:21 PM
Piplup, Female on first try too!
April 30th, 2011, 04:23 AM
Piplup, since it is my own personal tradition to select the Water type starter.
April 30th, 2011, 05:13 PM
I picked piplup. I figured a flaming-a$$ monkey wasn't doing it, and we already had a turtle. So i picked the penguin.
April 30th, 2011, 08:10 PM
Turtwig. But imo, all three starters were boring and not very aesthetically pleasing, so I ditched him early on for different Pokemon. :P
May 2nd, 2011, 12:53 PM
um piplup, and one pikachu,only for now
May 2nd, 2011, 05:31 PM
Nine times out of ten I would end up using Piplup.
May 6th, 2011, 10:54 PM
On my first run of Pearl, I chose Piplup.
Restarted Pearl yesterday and chose Chimchar.
In Platinum, chose Turtwig.
May 9th, 2011, 06:59 AM
First piplup then I went for a turtwig:)
May 12th, 2011, 10:50 PM
First, Piplup in Diamond...Chimchar in Platinum, then Turtwig in Diamond again.
May 13th, 2011, 03:22 AM
Chimchar, since I normally choose the Fire-type starters.

Diamond: Chimchar, I don't know why.

For Pearl, I first had Piplup as a starter on my first playthrough, then when I started the game over, I had Chimchar for my starter. I liked Piplup better though. ^^

Diamond: Turtwig, it really never got to level 100 or 40, since I boxed when he was lvl 36.
Pearl: Piplup, lvl 100, but I never kept it after the E4

Definitely chimchar. Although the starters for Sinnoh were nothing compared to the other generations, Chimchar was really good later in the game.

Chimchar in Pearl, and Piplup in Platinum. I usually choose the Fire starter, but I just liked Piplup so much, I had to have it as my starter in Platinum.

i have a habit of choosing grass type starters, so turtwig it is!
May 15th, 2011, 10:13 AM
Piplup. I just love the idea of a Penguin. Used Turtwig after that.
May 15th, 2011, 05:14 PM
Chimchar. It was stronger, better equipped than the other ones, except maybe for Torterra, but that's just my opinion.
May 15th, 2011, 07:18 PM
I chose Turtwig as my starter because I feel in love with Torterra the second I saw it, and because I generally pick grass-type starters. I never fully raised it level one hundred though. It's still at level seventy five or something along those lines.

I usually pick fire starters; so I had Chimchar in Diamond and Piplup in Platinum.
May 24th, 2011, 02:36 AM
Piplup was the one I chose mainly because of its amazing evolution Water/Steal.
May 25th, 2011, 10:49 AM
I chose Chimchar in both Pearl and Platinum. I guess it's just because my favourite types are fire. I guess another reason would be the other starters don't appeal to me as much.
May 25th, 2011, 10:52 AM
Mine was Chimchar in Diamond, Piplup in Platinum. I love them both.
May 25th, 2011, 11:44 AM
I chose Chimchar because my favorite pokemon type is fire :)
May 25th, 2011, 01:38 PM
I Chose Chimchar the first time! :)
May 25th, 2011, 10:23 PM
I would have chose Piplup for sure for Empoleon, but I already got Empoleon on SoulSilver for GTS. Then I got Platinum and started with Turtwig which is now lvl 34 still unevolved.
May 26th, 2011, 12:29 PM
Piplup, I got it to Empoleon at lvl 93 until I LOST MY FRIKIN PEARL D:
I was so enraged

My first time around with Diamond, I picked Piplup, then Chimchar on my second run, and then Turtwig on my Platinum run. Then I restarted my Diamond and picked Piplup again. o3o

My only choice was Piplup and Turtwig... Normally, I don't choose water types... But since it's too cute~
I picked Piplup...
June 5th, 2011, 01:00 AM
Turtwig who evolved into a level 65 torterra.
June 5th, 2011, 02:12 AM
Chimchar, I've always picked the fire type to begin with. :)
June 5th, 2011, 08:31 AM
Chimchar in diamond.(my favorite starter)
June 5th, 2011, 09:26 AM
I got all 3 games, D/P/Pt, so I chose all the starters. All have been bred and are now shinies with perfect IV's.
June 5th, 2011, 10:10 AM
I used Piplup on my first play through of Pearl, as I was brand new to Pokemon and it was recommended. I then used Turtwig on my second and finally Chimchar on my third. If I started again on Platinum, I'd probably do a 'eeny,meeny', all of them are good in game.
June 5th, 2011, 10:57 AM
Chimchar. He's just like...the best.
June 5th, 2011, 12:25 PM
Piplup...I get my favourite one always...
June 5th, 2011, 01:04 PM
I got Diamond and Platinum. In Platinum my starter was Piplup, who has fully evolved, and in Diamond my starter I was Chimchar, who is now an Infernape.
June 5th, 2011, 04:17 PM
My first 4th Generation game was Pearl Version, in which my starter was Turtwig. I then got Platinum, and my starter was Chimchar. I like them both, better than Empoleon when I eventually had one. Although Infernape is generally just the best :P
June 8th, 2011, 04:01 AM
Piplup was my choice in Platinum; and Turtwig in Pearl.
June 8th, 2011, 04:41 AM
On my platinum, first run: Turtwig. Second: Chimchar. I'm gonna restart my Pearl soon, guess who will be my starter? Piplup! Empoleon have such a badass name, typing and design!
