RSE: I liked using all three but the one I used the most was Mudkip.
FR/LG: I used both Squirtle and Charmander about the same. Only used Bulbasaur once.

In Fire Red I choose Charmander every time. In Emerald I choose Torchic. Sometimes I play with Treecko such as when I am doing a Nuzlocke.

Mudkip and Bulbasaur. Leech Seed is the best move ever.

In RSE I chose Mudkip for my first playthrough ever. He did wonders! In FRLG, I think I picked Bulbasaur.. terrible memory though for some reason, could be wrong.
Humans find such fascinating ways to waste their time.

Torchic because I was a big fire-type fan back then and I loved every fire starter in the past games.
in FR/LG I chose Charmander again because like I said, fire types lol. Plus his flamethrower is OP.

I chose Charmander in FR/LG. I've always liked the Charizard family line. :3
I chose Treeko in R/S/E. I don't really know why, either. I guess I had never tried a grass starter before- Charmander in RBY, Totodile in GSC, and then Treecko in RSE.
All the cool kids had a signature :o

RSE: In Ruby/Sapphire I always choose Torchic. I think I've started Sapphire once with Mudkip, but I always liked Torchic's evolutionary line. (Blaziken4Life.) In Emerald, I've chosen treecko. I finally could have a Grass type with nice speed and offensive stats. Also, Leaf Blade.

FR/LG: I've played Leafgreen first, and chosen Squirtle. In FireRed, Bulbasaur.

Mudkip in Sapphire Version
Charmander in FireRed Version

I still remember being so excited for my first Mudkip, I saw a little Nintendo magazine with them before the games were released and fell in love with it instantly.

When I played my big brother's GBA, (I was 4 yrs old) He let me play his Pokemon Ruby I picked Mudkip (because it's cute) and I nicknamed it "BUDDY". It's weird...My big bro nicknamed it the exact same thing! IT WAS DESTINY!!! Now, i'm 11, I've recently played a Pokemon Fire Red ROM and I love cute, I chose Squirtle! Squirtle is my fave Kanto starter.

I like lizards. What can I say?
I'm officially retired from all competitive play due to my busy schedule. But I'm never going to lose the love that I have for the Pokemon game in general. I now spend my free time playing GBA Pokemon Hacks just for the enjoyment of it.
