Favorite Starter
whos your favorite starter and why?

for me,even thought i have a charmander avatar,its cyndaquil. it has very nice design and best evolution line! plus its the starter for johto, my favorite region!

Hikamaru August 24th, 2012 7:40 AM

Oshawott for obvious reasons, it's cuteness, awesomeness and versatility all in one package!

Not to mention I love its personality in the anime!

No wonder I picked it as my starter in Black and I plan to do so again in B2/W2.

Snowdrop August 24th, 2012 8:56 AM

Chikorita <3 <3 <3 <3 Every one of her evolutions is great, I'll pick this one every time.

The Shiny Umbreon in the Corner August 24th, 2012 9:13 AM

Ughhh Hard question but it would be a tie between: this and a little bit of tepig! : )

o Pikachu o August 24th, 2012 9:19 AM

Always gonna be Cyndaquil and Charmander because G/S and R/B were my first ever Pokèmon games

Oryx August 24th, 2012 12:05 PM

Figured I would be the only one to choose Tepig. ;___; Guys come on he's adorable!!

Know-Nothing Bozo the Non-Wonder Dog August 24th, 2012 2:00 PM

Snivy. I like all of the snake-like Pokemon, and Serperior is just awesome. :)

Castform August 30th, 2012 5:39 PM

Squirtle holds that special place because it was my first poke. But I would much rather have torchic on my team.

PlatinumDude August 30th, 2012 6:11 PM

Even though I like most, if not all of the Fire and Water starters, I like Mudkip the most because it's my first starter Pokemon ever.

Kenshin5 August 30th, 2012 7:57 PM

I like Torchic over all of them, since Blaziken is one of my most favorite pokemon. I found Blaziken fairly easy to use and liked Blaziken since its appearance in Silver Conference. So I like it for the line more so specifically the basic stage. Coolest one though is Squirtle which is my second fav.

Mentalii September 1st, 2012 7:52 AM

Totodile. It has a scary side, but it's so cute at the same time. And I'll never forget my Totodile from Silver version.

Damsel September 1st, 2012 1:27 PM

This is hard for me.
I voted Squirtle, because ultimately it probably is my favorite.
Cyndaquil and Chikorita are close seconds though. Chikorita was my favorite starter when I was little and owned crystal version (technically the first game I owned) and Cyndaquil because I love how it and it's evolutions look.

Haddez September 1st, 2012 1:58 PM

Hard choice between Bulbasaur and Chikorita.
Went for Bulbasaur in the end, who doesn't like Sleep powder+Leech seed ;)

motb777 September 1st, 2012 2:17 PM

Totodile evolution line. Enough said.

Ephemeral Euphoria September 1st, 2012 2:26 PM

For me it's Mudkip and it's evolutionary line. Granted Totodile and Squirtle follow closely I love Mudkip so much because its final evolved form utterly destroyed everything it came into contact with for me making my battles oh so much easier, the carnage was breathtaking to say the very least lol.

XtinaIsMeLuvinWWE September 23rd, 2012 11:44 AM

Treecko by far - first grass type I really liked and I had so much fun in Emerald with Sceptile using Leaf Blade :D

He's also useless! I always choose the Fire-starter on my first playthrough of a new game and B/W was the first time I ever regretted that decision. Emboar is as useless as a condom machine in the Vatican.

My vote went with Charmander, of course. It was a tie between all three first-gen starters plus Cyndaquil and Chikorita, but in the end I went with Charmander for no other reason than he's Charmander and whatcha gonna do about it. He evolves into Charizard. Nuff said.

Also, he was my first ever starter and I think we all hold a special place in our hearts for those :P.

The Grubby Pup October 1st, 2012 11:36 PM

...Chikorita...I bet that's what you'll prolly expect, and you'll be friggen correct. It moveset is kinda...effy up into it learns Magical Leaf, but I'm bias and this is my favorite starter...Mudkip is my second favorite starter then Cyndaquil comes in third. And finally Snivy.

Treecko October 2nd, 2012 12:10 AM

Treecko. He's also my favorite Pokemon cause of how BA looking he is.

TheLeetCasualGamer October 2nd, 2012 3:44 AM

Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeko Treeeeeekooooooo!!!!!!!!!

Oh right, I have to say other stuff
>It introduced leaf blade
>It's design and evolutions are so awesome
>Grovyle is so bad*** in PMD2
>Possibly is the best choice in a Pokemon R/S/E run
>Geckos are awesome

Rothometapratis October 11th, 2012 11:22 PM

Bulbasaur by faaaaaaar. My favorite of all also. I like its appearance, colors, vine whip, razor leaves, leech seed and Ash's one is nice.

Noah Ridgewood October 12th, 2012 2:54 AM

Mudkip, because it's ABSOLUTELY adorable!

AChipOffTheOldBrock October 12th, 2012 5:39 PM

Totodile and Cyndaquil no contest. Both cute starters and badass evolutions. After them its Charmander and Squirtle. Never could decide between the water/fire types.

Brendino October 12th, 2012 7:38 PM

I'm honestly not a big fan of the starter Pokemon, but I would have to say that Treecko is my favorite. My original one from Sapphire that I started 9 years ago is still with me as a Sceptile on my HeartGold.

LividZephyr October 12th, 2012 7:50 PM

i liek mudkipz do u liek mudkipz

i liek charmanderz and chikoritaz too


Cutting out the meme, my favorite has always been Mudkip - even before the meme, but Charmander, Chikorita, and Torchic are all awesome too. I like all Gen IV starters about equally, and Bulbasaur and Cyndaquil are solid choices also. Gen V... they're all meh to me, to be honest...
