I chose Totodile when I first played because it was baddas. Which starter did you choose and why?

Chikorita is my baby <3

I always pick it. Once in a blue moon I'll feel risky and pick the other two, but it's usually Chikorita.

I always pick Cyndaquil, it's the coolest, and is very strong. I've always been a Fire-Type chooser (Except Tepig) and it was the best Fire-Type Starter to me. Plus it can learn Dynamicpunch when it's a Typhlosion (Which would be very strong looking at it's Attack levels)!

Cyndaquil. GSC were my first games and the first time I played I used Cyndaquil. Typhlosion is probably my favorite Pokèmon of all time.

I choose Totodile. I mean, really who wants a Bulbasaur wannabe, or that ridiculous fire type thing. Totodile becomes Feraligatr. Feraligatr is so much more bada** looking then Typhlosion or Meganium.

Cyndaquil for me; good Fire-type Pokemon were hard to find in those days.

Luckily for me, the starters I like in each generation are a different type, so I end up with variety every time :D
For the second generation, it was Cyndaquil. I like Totodile too, but not as much, since Typhlosion can really just handle everything (at least it can in the second generation, where it can be taught the easily-obtainable TMs for Thunder- and Fire-Punch). I always go with Cyndaquil. :)
I've gone with Meganuim a few times but it just.. it's not the best, IMO.

I always pick Chikorita. It's the cutest out of the three and is my favorite starter out of all the games Plus, the ability to learn Reflect and Synthesis makes it a really good in-game tank :D

I've gone through three playthroughs of Gold, and I chose a different starter each of the times. The very first one that I can remember choosing though was Totodile. I didn't really have any good reason for it, but it did end up becoming one of the better Pokemon on my team by the end of the game.

If I remember I picked Totodile first. Totodile just looked cool at the time, but I've used them all in a team and I PWNED Falkner with a Chikorita! In SoulSilver. Idk how I did it I just spammed tackle lol.

Agreed with this guy. Cyndi has the best stats, therefore smartest pick. ;]

Before my Gold stopped saving, I remember starting with Totodile since he's my favorite.

With Crystal, I decided to restart with my second favorite, Cyndaquill since I already have Totodile in SoulSilver; and because fire types are so rare in these games with the type match ups for gyms/elite four favoring them.

I was surprised how strong he was. My Typhlosion kicked so much ass in this game: Smokescreen+Rollout+Thunderpunch(back when it was special)+Fire Blast worked so well for me that I hardly needed the rest of my team(but I still made the effort to train them mostly evenly. The starters aren't invincible).

I actually remember that I chose Totodile purely cause I thought it looked so cool! Even today, I'd still pick Totodile in HGSS so my opinion hasn't changed for over 10 years now.

About 80% of the time I've chosen Cyndaquil, mainly because it's such an awesome Pokemon. While Totodile's line may be the superior one both type-wise and stat-wise, I've always liked the Cyndaquil line much better, mainly because of the design. Totodile and its evolutions may be a bit more colourful to look at, however I've always thought Typhlosion was so fierce and awesome to look at, and it just made it feel like it was stronger. That's not to say Typhlosion isn't strong, and I certainly didn't feel that way when I cloned one 5 times and used it as the only Pokemon on my team xD But yeah, I almost always choose Cyndaquil.

I pick Cyndaquil most of the time when I restart GSC. Totodile is second though. And I rarely ever pick Chikorita cause...I just don't like it that much haha.
