People are starting to forget this thread exists.
Anyway, my first time playing Sapphire, I picked Torchic. I remember when I bought the game and I thought Torchic was called "Porchic" and I told my dad that I was picking it. lmao 10 year olds. And, keeping with the Fire type tradition, I picked Charmander in FireRed. Luckily I knew how to pronounce Charmander.
