Torchic and Squirtle. Every single time I've started those games, they've been my go-to starters. I like their stats and movesets, and they're the best looking of the starters that you can choose from (considering their final forms, of course).

And there you have it.
75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their Pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

In Emerald and Sapphire, I chose Torchic. In FireRed, I chose Charmander.

I always choose Fire types.

Squirtle & Mudkip. I like starting out with Water types. :3

Charmander & Torchic were my choices for the second runs.

Treecko and Squirtle. Back then I was inspired by the anime and since Ash had Treecko I decided to take it. As for Squirtle? Well... I love water types xD. But nowadays I prefer Mudkip and Bulbasaur.

??What, I am allured to Fire Types, they are beastly! Sadly the tradition broke at Gen V. Emboar just didn't fit, his speed wasn't as good and his design...eh...Wasn't as cool as the others.

My first Pokemon game was Sapphire. Of course I chose Torchic. ♥ I got FireRed afterwards and started with Squirtle.


Looking forward to Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire remakes. ♥

Torchic and Squirtle. At when Torchic evolved I was like "Wow a fire/fighting pokemon".

Then they just had to make the next two generation fire starters be fire/fighting. Come up with something new Gamefreak!

Torchic and Squirtle. Blazieken is self-explanatory, and Blastoise.. I just really like him.

In RSE I always picked Mudkip. In FRLG I first picked Charmander, but when I lost the game and picked up a new one, I chose Squirtle.
Pokemon White team:

Badges: 8. Elite Four members beaten: 4. Currently at: White Forest.
Yes, I know if I went up against a good enough fire type I'd be screwed, but that's the fun of it.

Mudkip, I hate the fire/fighting combo e-o but at least Torchic was the one who started the type unlike some other unimaginative creations

Charmander for FR/LG is what I pick now I used to pick Squirtle imo the game is easier if you pick the sweeper type starter in this game, Blastoise is really balanced and even if you focus on only him through training he still won't be able to one shot a few pokemon I love the water starters more often but Charizard is the best imo.
