When playing R/S/E or FR/LG, I couldn't choose any differently from the starters we're given; I like them all. Although, given the chance, I guess I wouldn't mind choosing an Eevee as my starter in FR/LG if I could. Not being able to evolve it into Espeon or Umbreon is the only downside unfortunately.

Not sure why, but I really like seedot and all of its evolutions, so that would probably be my choice.

I'd probably pick Shroomish or Duskull. Their just cool and have a pretty decent move pool and stats.

I would still consider Torchic the most ideal starter ever and would pick him easily at any opportunity.

I would choose Ralts. Although you can obtain it early on in the game, I still think it is a great choice as a starter. Other than that, I would choose Bagon because Salamence > Your life.

Snorunt for sure. It takes pretty long before you can get one and an Ice-type as a starter would be special.

Hm, I can see Bagon as one I would want. Although, a Beldum would be just as amazing. Both have a great moveset when they finally evolve and on Metagross... that defense, so amazing.

for the 3 gen includes leaf grean, my ideal pokemon will be abra if he had at least one atack, but considering he don't have any attack until lv. 16, then a cool and powerful dratini.

For the RSE a metag will be something cool once he evolved.

In Ruby/Sapphire I always wanted to have Sharpedo as my starter. (And 8 Years later after I found about ROM Hacking I made that dream come true. :3) So, with that said. I would want Carvanha.

For FireRed and LeafGreen... Hm. This is hard. I've never really had a real attachment or must-have for any Pokémon in Kanto. But if I recall, when I was younger, I always wanted to be a Rock-Type trainer like Brock, so I... I would say Onix would be my starter?

Sorry for the long-winded response.

Snorunt or Beldum, since they evolutions are so cool, and they have good movepools, besides, an Ice or Steel starter would be great to have. And not to mention that Snorunt can only be obtained late in the game and Beldum only after the E4.

I would definitely choose Zangoose as a starter (i guess Seviper would also be a starter) He is just really cool looking, although it can't evolve.

As a fire type lover my choice would be either Charmander or Vulpix, but since Vulpix is my favorite, then Vulpix it is.
