FireRed: Squirtle, because it makes going through the game alot easier.
Emerald: Treecko for its smugness.

(Memes had nothing to do with this I swear)

Swampert is inarguably one of the best fully evolved starters. So yeah. Mudkip FTW.

Ever since day one, I've always chosen the water starter Pokemon first.

Except in Diamond, I chose Chimchar :3

The first time I ever played I choose Torchic (That was on Pokemon Sapphire)

Then on Pokemon Ruby I choose Treecko...

Then finally when I migrated most of my pokemon ruby pokemon I restarted with Mudkip.

For emerald, I took Treeko. I usually start off a generation by taking the grass starter. As for FRLG, the first time I played I used Squirtle

I went with Mudkip the first time around, though in almost all subsequent playthroughs I've gone with Treecko - that guy is just badass as hell.

And Charmander - for the same reason as Treecko.

Torchic and Charmander. Honestly I didn't really like any of the 3rd gen starters, but I just chose Torchic because I was excited that it was a chick Pokemon.

For RSE I always picked Mudkip (even after having some problems with him). I've used all three but I find Swampert's typing and immunity to Electricity epic.

Really all three Hoenn starters are tied here, I really like them all :/

When is comes to FRLG, I always pick Charmander.

I chose Treecko and Bulbasaur, IIRC. I used to be a huge fan of Grass-type starters. Now, not so much.

Squirtle and Torchic. They both evolve into my favourites from their generations.

On FR I chose Charmander, but on LG I chose Bulbasaur. And on RSE I chose Pokemon types respectively linked to the box. I didn't even do it on purpose, but it's like a habit for my games.
If you want a quick reply from me on the weekends, try between 11 o'clock and 4 in the morning.
