Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, hens return two years later in Black2 & White2.

The starter that I chose for my White 2 was Snivy. I'd already chosen Oshawott for my first go around, and I had been using Fire type starters a fair amount prior to that, so I figured that a Grass type like Snivy would be a nice change of pace.

I chose mine according to gyms at the start. First, I wanted a challenge at the second gym, so I chose snivy, I then caught Cobalion after the fifth gym, then abandoned my Serperior. SO, yeah, I beat the elite four with cobalion

Oshawott of course, in my Black 2 playthrough.

I often pick Water starters, and it's obvious I need my mascot in any Unova playthrough lol.

I chose Oshawott because I like it and its evolution lines (Samurott included).

I picked Oshawott, because i didn't feel like playing with another fire/fighting pokemon.
Plus his final evo looks super awesome :D

For B2 it was oshawatt because he is my fav and for W2 it was tepig because he went better with my team.

My starter is always Tepig. I love that little guy. Emboar is definitely one of my three top favorite starters. <3

Like Forever, I wouldn't even be able to use the other two properly, and usually don't. ;n;"

Since its about B2/W2 I only chosen Oshawott as my starter.
[but if you must know, I used Snivy when I played White, and later traded Oshawott over from Black 2, to have both of them, back when I restarted Black 2 - after beating Elite 4]

In Black 2 I choose Oshawott because of Dewott (he/she is my #1 favorite Pokemon at the moment), and since evolving to Dewott he has not evolved at all (now is at level 61), about to take on E4 and Dewott will help out.

In White 2 its my personal "Mustelid Challenge" so Oshawott is the only choice (as sea otters are aquatic mustelids), and once again after she evolved to Dewott she now holds the everstone, at level 47 (2 more badges to go).

No issues with Samurott (its my #3 favorite), I just love Dewott more.

For White 2 I chose Oshawott which was Modest straight away! Absolutely love my Samurott, he was a beast throughout my playthrough. I made the horrible mistake of choosing Snivy on Black 2, worst grass type ever. Reset and chose Tepig, instant bro for life.

I always go with Snivey. When he evolves into Serperior he gets great speed and attack.

As takai above me said, I too go with snivy. I chose it in Black and White version. I'm a huge reptile fan so when I saw it for the first time and it's snake like design, I fell in love. If I buy white 2, then I may go with tepig though only due to the fact that I have a pet pig and they are sooo cute! ^__^

My starter is Oshawott(Male) with a serious nature.
It's now a Samurott at Level 100, I also attached Splash Plate to boost its STABs, although I wished I had a Wacan Berry instead >.<

Naughty Nature Zekrom with 422 Attack stat and 252 Attack EVs traded from Pokemon White Version FTW!!!

Snivy has been my starter in every game of the fifth gen. The other starters were somewhat appealing to me but I didn't really like the final evolutions. Snivy's design really won me over and Serperior is probably my favorite grass-starter final evolution.

I chose Oshawott, but mostly because I didn't like the designs of other ones.

Tepig evolves into a Fire-Fighting Pokemon...which has become the bane of every Fire starter's existence recently.
Snivy evolves into a snake, although it seems to devolve more than it evolves (loss of legs, mainly)

If I had to choose between Tepig and Snivy, however, I would pick Snivy.

Oshawott is the only one of the three starters I can stand using throughout the game. I had to get rid of my Snivy in white 2 because it just couldn't get it done offensively.

I picked Oshawott which is typical of me as I love the water type Pokemon. I'm glad I did because I love the Pokemon it evolves into and it's heading my team well.

Plus it was hard to turn down such a cute looking sea otter.
