Cyndaquil. It's just so adorable and it's still pretty powerful. Also, Typhlosion is a boss. Frealigatr is a close second, as I always like the crocodile type look.

Well, I always went with Cyndaquil most of the time It's just adorable, I really like Typhlosion because he looks amazing and I like Fire Pokemon a lot in general

But, there were times I chose Totodile too, so it's a close call (not as often as Cyndaquil though).

But hey, if I REALLY had a hard time choosing, I just "took" all three starters using the cloning glitch xD So in the end, I would have obtained all three of them and trained them in my team :3

On my last save the starter was Totodile, but quite frankly I think I played with all of them. Nowadays, when I play on emulator (since my old Game Boy is not working anymore ) I often choose Cyndaquil, since Quilava is super cute and Typhlosion is really, really cool :3

Chikorita - she's just so cute! Also, I didn't really like the end evolutions of the other two

Almost always Cyndaquil. I first started with Totodile way back when Gold and Silver first came out and was a little bit disappointed with it. I really missed not having a fire type on my team so I restarted with Cyndaquil and it's been my favourite starter ever since.
My Safari is a Psychic type with Abra, Girafarig and Sigilyph.

I usually chose Cyndaquil. I kinda like Chikorita, but one of my all-time favourite/most-used Pokémon is Typhlosion.

Typhlosion carried me to the Elite Four.

Not that hard! If you're playing G/S/C then you can catch bellsprout in route 30 or you can find Oddish in Ilex Forest!
