That's tough because I like all three of them but if I had to pick I would say Mudkip. Its the one I used the most.

I most often choose Torchic. I realize Mudkip makes the game easier, both in the beginning and later on, but Blaziken appeals much more to me than Swampert ever could. Plus, I seldom ditch my starter and don't much like multiple pokémon with the same type on a team, so with Torchic I would get a more fun water pokémon than Mudkip. The Torchic line is good enough for a fighting type on the team, even though it's a bit difficult when you are up against the ice E4.

I love all of the starters in the third generation, but I like the Mudkip line a bit more.

Treecko! Sceptile is so awesome, especially the shiny version. I'm not a big fan of Torchic or Mudkip's evolutions at all. u~u

I picked Treecko because it looks coolest. Swampert and Blaziken are alright, though.

Treecko was the Pokemon that I chose the very first time I played Sapphire, and I still have it to this day on my HeartGold. I've used both Mudkip -> Swampert and Torchic -> Blaziken too, and while they're both good, neither can match up to how much I loved using Sceptile.

My favorite is Torchic because once it evolves into Blaziken it's unstoppable!
I'll admit that fire is my favorite type so I tend to go with the fire starter, but I really do like the other ones. I liked all 3 in the 1st gen, 2 in the 2nd gen, and 2 in this gen. I'm sure Sceptile is an awesome grass type, but I don't like the look of him and grass isn't a favorite type of mine. Swampert looks pretty cool, but I don't like that he's also a ground type. Just makes it seem like he's not as good in the water as a pure water type. I don't want a Pokémon that's on the GROUND that knows water type attacks, I want full on NAVY SEALS in the WATER! Not to mention that there are 3 water HM's and since I don't carry more than 1 Pokémon of the same type he would end up getting all 3. However Torchic and his evolution line are awesome! The next best thing than a fire Pokémon is a fire Pokémon that fights! Blaziken not only punches and kicks, but he does it with fire! THAT'S HOT. :p

I like all of them, so it's hard to pick. I'll probably go with Mudkip.

I like Mudkip, what I don't like is saying "Mudkipz" or the phrase "So I herd u lik Mudkipz". What the heck is that?! lol only joking of course. When did Mudkip become the only Pokémon that's cool to like?

Both Torchic and Mudkip made everything so easy, but they're both really fun. Treecko, on the other hand, made life miserable until Leaf Blade came along. So I'm going to have to go with Torchic.

I probably play with Treecko more than the other two.
Actually I pretty much never pick Torchic. I should try sometime...

My vote goes to Mudkip though, because I think that it's the most practical starter in the game and Water/Ground is a very good typing to have. My playthroughs are usually easier when I pick Mudkip.

Mudkip definitely! Once it had fully evolved I pretty much had it OHKO-ing everything with Surf and Muddy Water... unless it wasn't a good type match up lol

I would say the over all best starter would be Mudkip. Treeko is probably the worst grass starter as far.
But my vote goes to Torchic. Because the first time i played Ruby i picked it.
Plus i still use Blaziken.

Sceptile. Cool design (it looks like a dragon), the king of the forest, STAB Leaf Storm, Swords Dance, yup. Blaziken is ugly, overrated, and Uberz in gen 5 for some reason. Swampert is ok and I like its Water/Ground-typing, plus it's the best Hoenn starter (ignoring the fact that Blaziken gets Speed Boost via the DW), but it's not as cool-looking as Sceptile.

Therefore, my vote goes to Treecko, since it also looks cooler than Torchic and Mudkip. It should be noted that Marshtomp is my favourite middle evo.
