I actually tried out all three at first but Cyndaquil became my firm favourite and the one I regularly used

Pokemon Gold was the first game I ever played,and Totodile was the first pokemon that I ever had.
I did a play through with Cyndaquil and Chikorita later,but Totodile will always be my favorite.

y u p. Wish I knew where my Gold was but I'm pretty sure that's forever lost. Oh well. I still have Silver and Crystal so I still have my Feraligatr and Meganium.

I meant to vote Totodile. I don't know why I didn't click it, I've never chose it. Sometimes Chikorita. Usually Totodile.

Totodile.

Always Cyndaquil. <3

It's just so adorable, and good Fire Types are hard to come by in GSC early on.

When I played when I was younger, I chose totodile. I love him in the anime. However, when I replay it , I usually chose Cyndaquil or Chikorita. Im not really sure why. CHikorita when I want to be adventurous and cyndaquil when I want to play "cheap"

I usually go with Chikorita. I did my first time because I liked her design and she's served me well over the years - even if she makes the game harder... which is kind of the point. Given how I always keep my starter, it doesn't hurt to make it a little harder.

I think I first chose Totodile when I was playing through Gold version. But I hated Feraligatr so much when it eventually evolved, that I vowed never to choose it again. Every subsequent playthrough I did was me choosing Cyndaquil, as I've never liked Grass critters, for the most part. I'd always get rid of Typholosion when Houndoom came along, but it was probably the best starter out of a not-so-great bunch.

Totodile.
It's always water types for me.

I never choose Chikorita because of the Flying and Bug gyms being first.
And cyndaquil always failed for me on whitney, where as totodile did not.

If I remember correctly, I chose Cyndaquil on my first try. I was in the middle of my game when it crashed, and my file was deleted. I don't know. Then I chose Chikorita, because I thought it was so adorable, plus I didn't know that grass Pokemon were that weak. At the end, I started a new game with Cyndaquil, because I hated the way Totodile looked. Ew.

I actually love them all, but I usually choose Chikorita. It is my favourite. Though Tododile was the first Pokemon I got to level 100.

I always choose Cyndaquil just because I love it's whole evolutionary line to bits and really dislike both Chikorita and Totodile (especially Totodile). Feraligatr scares me too much to use it and Meganium feels so... unspectacular :( Also I don't like Fire types much at all but I adore Cyndaquil, so it's pretty much the only chance I ever get at using them and it's nice to make the most of it haha.

I must agree, I wasn't too thrilled about Bulbasaur's Grass/Poison type and I was enthralled with Torchick becoming a Fire/Fighting type Pokemon, which left me unimpressed with Treecko.

Cyndaquil, without a doubt. Fire Pokemon are very hard to find

I always choose between Cyndaquil or Totodile. Since fire types are not very easy to come by and I absolutely MUST have a fire type in my team, I usually pick Cyndaquil. It's my favourite out of the 3 starters! So cute! I mean, just look at my sig! :3

I also pick Totodile on occasion when I feel like it. He's one powerful water type, to be sure. I used to pick him ALL the time in Gold when I was young. Water types are one of my favourite types after all. :)

To be honest, the first time I played Silver I choose Cyndaquil, and I loved him so much! But every other time after that, I choose Totodile. Totodile is my favorite starter Pokemon.

I usually go with Totodile due to it's access to Ice Punch which really helps with Lance if I don't feel like raising a Dragonite of my own. My first time playing Silver I went with Chikorita though.
