Which starter did you choose?
Obviously we've probably restarted a TON of times on these games, but your first time playing RSE and FRLG, who did you choose? I chose Torchic and Charmander, respectively. Gotta love Fire types! :)

Cherrim September 20th, 2010 7:39 AM

Torchic and Charmander too.

For odd numbered gens up to now, I've always ended up choosing Fire types. :'D I'm a little sad I'll be breaking said tradition for Gen 5 but oh well. The fire type was the only starter I liked in RSE and I love all the starters in FRLG but decided I like Charmander the most. ♥

Zebeedoo September 20th, 2010 7:40 AM

I chose Torchic and Bulbasaur as my starters first time playing RSE & FRLG. :3

M. Dent September 20th, 2010 7:51 AM

Treecko and Bulbasaur

Gotta love those Grass types :D

mal'akh September 20th, 2010 6:39 PM

Mudkip and Squirtle. Gotta love those Water Types. xD

Arc September 20th, 2010 6:44 PM

Gotta love mixed~

Ctrl.Alt.Geak September 20th, 2010 6:53 PM

Mudkip and Bulbasaur (but I prefer Squirtle)

Anna September 20th, 2010 6:57 PM

I chose Torchic and Charmander~

Fire FTW~ :3

Brunatix September 20th, 2010 7:09 PM

Charmander, Cyndaquil (HINOARASHI FTW) and Treecko....Sounds weird, he's a grass type but...Yeah, he's still awesome.

Elite Overlord LeSabre™ September 20th, 2010 9:05 PM

Torchic and Squirtle. And not just the first time, but every single time I've restarted them.

I found that those Pokemon's evolved forms work best for me, and I tend to stick with what I know.

And now I'm getting the urge to play through Leaf Green again...

Soul Hunter X September 21st, 2010 1:22 AM

Mudkip and Charmander...and I always (almost) choose 'em.

PlatinumDude September 21st, 2010 1:55 AM

In Sapphire and Emerald, I went with Mudkip. I tried Treecko and Torchic, but found them awkward to use.

In FireRed/LeafGreen, I went with Squirtle in LG and Charmander in FR.

Ruby was my first Pokémon game and I remember I chose Torchic because what got me into the game was my God-Mother giving me a Torchic Plushie when she came and visited and in return my god-brother and I got Rub yand Saphire and I got Torchic because of that Plushie (he got Treeko plushie and started with Treeko)

Leaf Green was my second Pokémon game and what got me into the tradition of using Grass type Starters,because Bulbasaur caught my attention from the Anime,during the era of Ash and May using Bulbasaurs.And then I descovered Ivysaur and has been my Favorite Pokémon since.And later bought a Bulbasaur Plushie after Lt.Surge

TL;DR Torchic for Ruby,Bulbasaur for Leaf Green

(I still have both Plushies <3)

curiousnathan September 21st, 2010 10:15 PM

I chose Charmander and Treeko.

Dark Pulse94 September 22nd, 2010 12:43 AM

I started by choosing Torchic, then Charmander, but in my newest restart (my Nuzlocke Challenge) I chose Mudkip. I heard you liek? no, seriously, I nicknamed it "you liek"

Martins September 22nd, 2010 4:39 AM

Charmander in FireRed and LeafGreen and Treeko in Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. I always choose them.

Xilfer September 24th, 2010 1:19 PM

The two, the only.....
Aaaaaah i remember the good old days, i chose torchic the first time i played r/s/e but i chose treecko the second time, i love'em both.
as for fr/lg,...i really cant remember, i think it was charmander, FIRE RULZ!!!!!! :D

Alamos September 24th, 2010 1:43 PM

Ahh, the memories lets take it back.............

FireRed: Charmander (Respectively)
Emerald: Mudkip

Pancake86 September 24th, 2010 4:00 PM

I chose Treecko when I started Ruby for the very first time and Squirtle in Fire Red (I forgot Sapphire and Leaf Green though). Of course, i've restarted these games a million times. x_x But that's what I remember.

Sgt_Grovyle September 24th, 2010 5:02 PM

Bulbasaur in Fire Red and Mudkip in Sapphire. I beat Sapphire in like a day but FR took me forever.

Kayuu September 24th, 2010 5:17 PM

I chose Mudkip in Sapphire and Charmander in Leaf Green.
Mudkip will always be my favourite starter since Sapphire was my first game. :D

Peach Fresca September 26th, 2010 9:16 AM

Ruby - Treeko(SP?).
Leafgreen - Bulbasaur.
Emerald - Mudkip.
Emerald [Second Time Around] - Torchic.

Cassino September 26th, 2010 12:07 PM

Torchic and Charmander... Until gen. 5, I've never liked any grass starters much, and the only Water Pokemon I ever make a point of getting is Azumaril (or Starmie in gen. 1). In FR I abandoned my starter once I got Elyssa's Farfetch'd.

Owl September 26th, 2010 12:37 PM

Same for me.
Torchic and Charmander.

paramore_223 September 26th, 2010 3:58 PM
