So you could say you chose Cyndaquil in Soul Silver as a sort of equivalent to Charmander? Nice. I've used all three starters in my HG version, as well as the trio in Diamond too.

Since I always choose water and fire starters (and never grass, for some reason.), I chose Piplup for my Pearl, and Cyndaquil for Heartgold.

I know it said that I chose Chikorita in the poll. I accidentally chose it because I was thinking about my Crystal ROM.

Piplup and Cyndaquil! Cyndaquil is the only reasonable choice for me in Johto as I very much dislike the other two starters and the little fire rodent is utterly adorable :3 As for Piplup, I mainly just choose that for the anime haha. I like all the Sinnoh starters quite a lot so I have no problem with choosing any of them, but I tend to go with Piplup most of the time since Dawn's Piplup is so adorable :3

Pearl: Chimchar
Diamond: Piplup
Platinum: Chimchar
HeartGold: Cyndaquil

In Platinum did you go by the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" and choose the same starter you got in DP or did you go for a different starter amongst the three?
In my second playthrough of Diamond (since it was originally my brother's game but he gave it to me), I picked Turtwig. So, I had all three starters. I picked Chimchar again in Platinum because it worked the best in-game.

In HG/SS you were given a pretty familiar choice that many of us have had to choose from before. Was it Cyndaquil, Totodile, or Chikorita that you chose?
I picked the same starter I used in Gold - Cyndaquil! For nostalgic reasons, hm...

The only time I truly ditched my starter was Tepig in White.

I chose Piplup in Platinum and Totodile in SoulSilver. The water starters just end up being the cutest to me.

I choose you Piplup :3! Ah Piplup,the cute blue penguin that really knows how to show power. Mainly I chose it because when I set my eyes on previews of it's final evolution I honestly thought it was one of the most badass Pokemon ever.

Right now on my second playthrough of Platinum,I chose the tough Turtwig. I try to be different every time I play and since there were great fire types in Sinnoh I had to pick this little guy. He's a pretty decent starter and I'm liking him all the way .

In Heartgold, my choice was the biting Totodile. It's a powerful and deadly physical attacker. I love everything about him :3!

In PDPT I picked Chimchar because I was like "Holy crap a flaming poop flinging monkey?! Yeeeah!"

Back in GSC I picked Cyndaquil cause it was like tradition and I had liked fire at the time.

And yes my infernape has Throw and a bag of mulch as his held item FYI Mulch is like poop and soil mixed together xD

Diamond/Pearl/Platinum - first pick was Turtwig/Gortle/Torterra...because it looked awesome, seemed to put up a challenge (five weaknesses which later become four but double for Ice), and it can learn Earthquake.

HeartGold/SoulSilver - Totodile/Croconaw/Feraligatr...love the Water-type and Feraligatr looks awesome. Surely impressive specimen for my collection.

For me, I once played Diamond...And I chose Piplup. For Platinum, I used Piplup as well. And for HeartGold (both of them, I have two)...Totodile's my choice. For SoulSilver...Chikorita became my choice instead. So, I mostly use Water-types.

I tend to buy both games, so I picked Piplup in Pearl, Chimchar in Diamond, and Turtwig in Platinum. And even though I love Cyndaquil, I picked Totodile for HG and will be picking Chikorita when I play SS >.<

In Diamond, I chose Piplup as my starter. I was obsessed with Dawn at the time, and I just had to complete her Pokemon list. I don't have Pearl/Platinum/HG/SS so end of story.

I almost always choose Grass or Fire starters. Before getting diamond, I thought to myself, "whichever one I get, I'm not getting the stupid monkey." Well, I ended up getting the stupid monkey 'cause I wanted Floatzel and either Pachirisu or Shinx (went with Shinx). It ended up not being so bad, I like Monferno but Infernape is not one of my favorites. In Platinum, I picked piplup because I hadn't gotten one yet.

For HG, I picked tododile, but immediately ditched it for Horsea (my plan all along). The idea for my run was that after beating each gym, I would gain a new pokemon on my team that matched the gym's type. So, after beating the dragon gym, I finally evolved my Seadra into Kingdra. It was pretty awesome. If I hadn't done that, I probably would've picked Cyndaquil (my starter back when I played Crystal version) or Chikorita for a change of pace (I have some sort of grudge against Tododile I guess).

My favorite Pokémon is Totodile, and in Platinum i picked my personal Favorite Turtwig!
I prefer Totodile then Cyndaquil.
I never really liked Cyndaquil at all.
Turtwig is awesome.
That's all i can say about Turtwig.

Pearl the first time I played it I chose Chimchar. However I started not to feel the game or the team that I had and so after transferring that team over to Diamond I restarted and picked Turwig instead. Liked it a lot better than Chimchar.

Diamond I picked Piplup because it was the last of the three. No other reason other than that though. Thankfully I liked it more than I thought I initially would.

Soul Silver I picked Totodile for nostalgia reasons, as Totodile was the first starter I have ever chosen on my Silver version which was the first Pokemon game that I have ever played.

In Diamond I chose Chimchar, because May made me dislike Piplup
In Soul Silver I chose Cyndaquil, because I love Quilava
I'm not really a fire trainer, but... come to think of it, I chose Torchic in Hoenn and Charmander in Kanto...

Why do you think you've swayed more toward fire type starters?

I normally always go with Fire type however in Gold (not heart gold) I chose Totodile. Dunno why, I think it's cause it looked cooler!
