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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Gotta love the high life.

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 .

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.

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.

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...
