The first ever time, I recall picking Treeko, although I'm not sure. I mean, it was like 6 years ago or so. My last completed playthrough, I had a Sceptile. Before that I had a Swampert, though I only got to the eight gym. I restarted just yesterday and got a Torchic.
...what a big rip-off...

I do calculate stat values, I do breed my way to perfection, and I do care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like brainless drones instead of individuals. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

In FireRed I chose Charmander.
In Sapphire I think I chose Torchic.
In Ruby I chose Treecko.
In case you haven't noticed, I don't like to pick the same type of starter all the time.

I chose Treecko and Squirtle. I'm a big fan of their final evolutions so it only seemed right.

On Fire Red/Leaf Green it always comes down to Squirtle because of Blaistoise., as he is the hardest Pokemon to replace in the game. Charizard, for simple power can be replaced with Moltres, while Venesaur is actually harder to replace, I rarely have a grass Pokemon in my final team.

With RS/E I was not to big of a fan of the final Evolutions of the starters, so I generally tried to find Pokemon throughout the game to replace the starters with, but I always chose Torchic until I could replace it.

For some reason I only chose the Water starters in all Gen III games.
I guess I loved Blastoise and Swampert too much.

Hmm, I'm mainly a water type man. So everytime I bought a new game for the first time I used: But I did go around and culturally absorb new information from the new starters.

FR/LG: Squirtle
Ruby/Sapphire: Mudkip
Emerald: Mudkip + Cyndaquil

:D Hahah yes, I did finish my hoenn dex >:)

On Emerald I initially chose Torchic because I'm used to choosing Fire-types. Horrible mistake imo, got bored/sick before beating Norman. I'm much happier now I restarted with Mudkip. My Marshtomp helped crush Wattson :D someone whose gym I somehow struggled with initially.

On FireRed/LeafGreen I chose Charmander, 'cause I just love Charizard. I'll restart eventually starting with Squirtle the Bulbasaur though.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

Mudkip in Ruby and Emerald and Charmander in FireRed. My Ruby Mudkip has followed me in every game until HGSS. I'm sad about transferring to BW because he will lose the Shell Bell we made together.

FR: Charmander because it evolves to Charizard which is a dragon!
EM: Treecko I don't know why but he seems cooler than the other grass types except for Snivy.

I always choose Torchic, 2nd choice would be Treecko. Mudkip kinda.. you know.. sucks.

It's EV's aren't bad, but water types are plain useless. I guess grass types are too, but they're pretty fun. In FRLG I always got Charmander, even though I preferred Blastoise. Fire types are the most useful throughout the game, though I always tend to drop my starter sometime after the 3rd gym.

Well when I first played through Pokemon Ruby I chose Torchic and Leaf Green I went with Bulbasaur (My most favorite pokemon ever:D) I miss my noob days sometimes though. When I was little playing Ruby I didn't go far enough left to realize there was a road to petalburg so by the time I did I had a lvl 40 Blaziken xD Yep I'm that boss xP
