I would start with a Miltank, but since I can't I choose Cyndaquil cause he looks the cutest :3

I would always pick Totodile because it is a water type Pokemon and I believe that Totodile is the cutest one of the three and has an awesome look once it becomes a Feraligatr. Totodile can learn Ice moves which is a weakness to Chikorita and Cyndaquil is self explanatory.

Cyndaquil of my first run, but unfortunately my cousin new game'd it. So I picked Totodile on my second run. I never picked Chikorita before!

Cyndaquil.


To blame was Charizard's amazing legacy for indoctrinating us to believe that fire types would always reign supreme.

Well, I choose Cyndaquil in both Crystal and Heart Gold. He's 3 stage, Typhlosion is my favourite Johto Pokemon and because I love fire types.

Totodile because at least then I could feel good about beating my rival since he had Meganium. I like Cyndaquil a lot but Since HG/SS Totodile got better with stuff like Ice Fang and Superpower

I always like to choose Cyndaquil but my sister's nickname is Chikorita and I managed to get a female once so there I go, using a Geodude to take down Falkner 3 hits, and Whitney 3 hits. (BTW, use rock smash, I know it sucks but it works and for Miltank use Selfdestruct xD)

First game I ever played was Crystal and picked Feraligatr. Now since I don't use starters I choose Cyndaquil so my rival has Totodile, because Feraligatr fits him the most I think.

In Silver, I started with Totodile. I've always had a thing for the water starter, and Totodile was no exception. Also, that meant the rival would choose the worst starter in my opinion, Chikorita.

I usually always start with Cyndaquil as it's my favorite starter. It's adorable, and even though i don't care for the fire type, I still think Typhlosion is awesome. Back when I first got the game though I started with Chikorita, seeing how in Blue I started with Bulbasaur and thought it was the best choice. I was wrong though... :V It's my least favorite starter in Gen II. :\

In G/S I pick Totodile every time and it's always named Crocogator.

Crystal's a bit different. I'm willing to get Chikorita since Growlithe and Poliwag give a nice early Grass/Fire/Water core, but sometimes I get Cyndaquil and apply the same principle with a Bellsprout.

I started with Totodile in Gold and Crystal and Cyndaquil in Silver. I always go for the water starter in my first game of a generation (at least) (in this case, that was Gold). I think I actually started with Totodile on Silver at first as well, but at that point, I was just using Silver as a storage pack/trading source for Gold and Crystal. Several years after I got Silver (sometime after Gold died in 2006), I finally restarted my Silver game, made a "real" file, and played through the game with the Cyndaquil line.

I don't think I've ever started with Chikorita, aside from playing the first 15 minutes of the game or so to trade it to another file.

For all generations I'd always choose a fire starter. I've always loved them, cause they pack a whole lot of power and dexterity, and of course their 1st stages are so damn cute <3 The first time I played around with my sister's Silver and accidentally restarted it, then saved, I chose a Totodile, my sis was a huge water type picker, regardless of the generation. I'm the opposite so I always ended up choosing Cyndaquil ( In the Anime he was so cute and adorable <3). Even in Gen 4's HGSS: Cyndaquil always won me over.

I usually picked Cyndaquil, but I went with Totodile sometimes. I like fire and water types, so I was happy either way. Once in a while I chose Chikorita, and Chikorita was actually the first Gen 2 starter I ever chose, but Meganium just never ended up being as useful as Typhlosion or Feraligatr (or as awesome looking).

When I very first started Gold back in the day I chose Totodile because he was a spunky little gator but I had some difficulties with Red at the time because my team wasn't evenly balanced/and or leveled so I ended up having to train a Fire-type and some others to beat him.

So these days on HeartGold I always pick Cyndaquil because there are a huge abundance of Water and Grass-types.

I chose Cyndaquil everytime.
When he evolved into Typhlosion, he was such a beast. Good type coverage with moveset too.
