My starter was a Treecko. I chose it because I love a lot of the grass types. In the beginnig of the game it helps with one of the gym leaders.

Torchic. Really a godsend when it came down to like half the gym leaders and elite four. And I already knew I was going to get Tropius, so I didn't pick Treecko.

This might be cliche but Mudkip. I liekz Mudkipz xD But in all seriousness, in Emerald, 2 teams. Magma (Treecko = Fail) and Aqua (Torchic = Fail) but Mudkip is cute, good stats and can take down Magma while being neutral to Aqua. He's just the best starter, in my opinion anyway.

I always pick fire-type starters, just because :) . So, Torchic and Charmander.

First time I played FireRed, I chose Charmander. The first time I played Ruby, I chose Torchic.

I don't know why, but those seemed to be the most appealing Pokemon to me at the time

My first of FRLG (and my first pokemon game at all) was Leaf Green, and I chose Bulbasaur. Then I played through Fire Red with Charmander. Then I traded the nice stuff out of Fire Red and replayed it with Squirtle.

My first of RSE was Sapphire, and I chose Mudkip. Then I played Ruby with Torchic, then finally Emerald with Treecko. That's one thing I loved about having three games to a set - three games and three starters equals one for each.

People are starting to forget this thread exists.

Anyway, my first time playing Sapphire, I picked Torchic. I remember when I bought the game and I thought Torchic was called "Porchic" and I told my dad that I was picking it. lmao 10 year olds. And, keeping with the Fire type tradition, I picked Charmander in FireRed. Luckily I knew how to pronounce Charmander.

For my Emerald game i usually chose Mudkip. I love cute starters. Then for Ruby i chose Torchic. Finally, Sapphire, back to Mudkip again (i don't like Treecko). For Fire Red and Leaf Green it is always either Bulbasaur or Squirtle. I chose Charmander ONCE and got my butt kicked the WHOLE game. i will NEVER do that again. it took me i think 8 tries to beat Brock with Charmander. he drained me of ALL my money. after that, no more Charmander. it's not that i don't LIKE Charmander. i do, he's one of my favorite Pokemon. but he's just not that good.
95% of all Pokémon hacks are of the 3rd Generation, majority of them being FireRed.
If you believe that the 2nd generation should be hacked more often,

Treecko and Charmander. I like both Grass and Water types, so may as well. I think I tried Mudkip once though and he was pretty nice, but I just like Treecko too much.

Always the Fire starter. So, Charmander and Torchic.

Charmander is pretty boss in FRLG. IMO the best starter. Bulbasaur has advantage against gyms, but when he's at a disadvantage, he can't do crap (Pokémon Tower for example). Squirtle doesn't really excel at anything and is outshone by the likes of Lapras and Starmie. Charizard is great for all-purpose strength and Flamethrower puts a dent on anything.

I like Lyra so take my opinions with a grain of salt.

Fire Red- Charmander (favorite Pokemon, oldest friend)

Leaf Green- Bulbasaur (mascot Pokemon, only seemed right)

Emerald- The first time I played it,m I chose Treeko (coolest of the bunch). The second time, I chose Mudkip (basically soloed the game with a Swampert lol).

Fire Red - Squirtle ( i love all three starters from this gen. it really took me a bit to decide on which i wanted to choose) Love all the evolutions from the GENIII starters!

Ruby - Torchic (i didn't really care for Torchic but i liked it's evolutions. overall i didn't care for either of the three starters in Ruby although the evolutions were nice)

In leaf green I chose squirtle who has always been my favorite starter pokemon. He may not be the power house Charizard is, but he stands hoi ground and packs a decent punch when raised right.

In ruby, which I am playing for the first time right now, I picked treecko. Mostly because I had pokemon of the other starters types i really wanted to use, crawdaunt for water and hariyama for fighting.

I picked Charmander in FR. I tried the others after I got squashed by Brock in the first gym, but it still wasn't the same with Squirtle and Bulbasaur. Never chose Bulbasaur, perhaps I thought it was a bit too creepy since it didn't look like it had a nose. I chose Torchic first in emerald, but I switched to Mudkip pretty soon. I don't know why I love Water Ground types so much.
