Starter Pokémon Fanclub


Which Pokémon are the starters?


Kanto:

Bulbasaur - Charmander - Squirtle

Johto:

Chikorita - Cyndaquil - Totodile

Hoenn:

Treecko - Torchic - Mudkip

Sinnoh:

Turtwig - Chimchar - Piplup

Isshu:

Snivy - Tepig - Oshawott

What's a starter?


A starter Pokémon is one that you begin your journey with. In the anime, most characters begin their journey with the starters that correspond to their region, however, Ash, one of the main protagonists, started off with a Pikachu. In the main Pokémon games, besides Pokémon Yellow, trainers started off their journey with one of their regional staters. For those reasons, this club is aimed mainly at the regional starters, however, it can apply to starters of other games, such as Eevee, Umbreon, Espeon, etc, though it would be better if discussion revolved mainly around the main staters.

Treecko. I used to hate it at first, but it started growing on me. By the time I got the first Mystery Dungeon, it became my favorite.

I'll have to go with Charmander. I know it's a popular favorite, but it was my first starter and pokemon ever in the games, and I just think it's so cute, and it's evolutions are so cool! :] Plus I'm a fire type lover.

Not very original, but I absolutely adore that Pokémon!

Hmmm... yeah my favourite overall is Torchic, but Turtwig? I...dislike. XD;

Charmander would have been my favourite only IF I played R/B/Y first. XD

My favorite starter is Squirtle. I find the design to be adorable.

I love Ash's Squirtle in the anime... with the whole Squirtle Squad thing. I was a little irked with the Firefighter thing... but mostly cause that meant byebye Squirtle.

I also used Squirtle the first time I played Pokemon (I think it was Blue?). I remember that I could never get past that first Picknicker who waited right by the "cut tree" on the way to Rock Tunnel... so I ended up switching to Charmander so I could pawn her grass types ;.;

I think both of Charmander's evolutions are pleasing to the eyes, that's another reason he's my favorite. I love Squirtle and Bulbasaur as well, but when they evolve they just get kind of, for lack of a better word, ugly to me. :/ Ivysaur, I think is adorable though. Just that last stage gets me. xD I guess you could call me vain.

As for the Johto starters - Cyndaquil remains my favorite of the three, as well as probably my second favorite of all time. I am baised to fire, but it's also that yet again I like his design and final forms the best. I'm a little fond of Chikorita, too though. Meganium is cute and can actually pack a punch for a Grass type.

I never seem to be fond of the water starters either. Possibly because I'm not fond of water types in general. xD I'm more of an earthy and firey person. The rare times I did pick a water starter though, it was nice to always have surf on hand. Charizard can fly though... <3

Can I join? o:

My favourite starter is Chikorita. (Though he/she's kinda useless in battling. | I think it's because it's the only starter that caught my eye when I was picking a starter in Crystal. (Though Cyndaquil is cute, too.)

Well as for their evolutions, Charmander evo line is just pure work of awesomeness! XD
But all jokes aside, I love all starters and their evolutions. It's a cliche, I know, but I just do...
The only two Pokémon of the entire starter evo lines are Tepig's evolutions. Tepig had such a huge potential, and the evos could have been MUCH better IMO!

Currently, my favorite starter Pokemon is Turtwig!!!
At first, I was like, "Yuck, what the hell is that?" But now I'm like, "JESUS! LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT JAW!!"
It is adorably cute, and it makes a cool sound.

But then again I like all of the starter Pokemon, except the Hoenn starters, I can stand Treeko, but seriously, as soon as I catch one Pokemon, I am releasing him. I also don't like Wartortle, but I love Squirtle and Blastoise, and I don't like Croconaw, but Totodile is AWESOME!!

I always thought Chikorita was an okay battler, as far as starters go. :o Then again I've only picked it once or twice. The only starters where I don't like really any of the designs, are the Sinnoh starters... :/ Chimchar is my favorite of them, but I was still never that fond of it.

Oh yes, I remember that... slightly. XD; I do recall that Ash' Squirtle used to be a bad guy or something, though?

Well, Blastoise is a pretty awesome evolution, it's just Venusaur that's the more boring of the three. XD;

Oh Meganium is kinda nostalgic to me, but the moveset andthe Pokemon in general? Don't care much about. XD;

Yeah Chikorita was pretty weak, so when I did use it, I usually used a bird Pokemon alongside it. XD;

Well I guess I would get rid of Chikorita if I absolutely had to. I like Chikorita, but out of all starters, it's my least favourite. :/
Can't say anything for the Isshu starters, since I haven't played BW yet...

But..., but..., everyonz luuuurvs Mudkipz! LOL
Well i don't know much about BW starters, But i really like Tsutarja's evo line! (sorry, Snivy's evo line)...
I also prefer tsutarja. Much better name IMO!
But i don't like the fact that Oshawott's (lousy name btw) final evo is a completly different animal then the preevos! The preevos are Sea otters (like the second evo), but the final evo is a Sea lino... :/

Chikorita, I have never seen the point to this thing I hated when I was a kid in the Anime I hated it when I picked for a run through silver,I dislike its design. there is nothing about chikorita that I like.

Snivy, I likey. I also like Oshawott. His final evo is also based on a giant otter. I don't like Chaoboo, only Tepig and Enbuoh.. (It looks like Ganon. 8D)

I'll go and make the fire and water userbars.

It's been a while since I joined a club... Time to change that!

My favorite starter is Oshawott. He's just so cute! Even though a lot of people think he's ugly... And his name is kinda silly too, but I don't judge on names.

And I'd never get rid of a starter Pokémon, I actually adore them all. But if I had to, I'd sacrifice Chikorita. It's too plain in my opinion.

Oshawott is indeed pretty cute. :D

Why do people hate on Chikorita? I used to hate it too, but it started growing on me. It's based on a dinosaur aswell, which is a plus for me. <3

Spinosaurus; Those are so cute! If my signature wasn't so big and annoying, I'd put one in to help advertise. xD; and I have a secret grudge on you for what you said about Charmander

I don't hate on Chikorita, I actually liked her and her evolutions quite a bit. Yeah, Meganium wasn't the best ever, but I still enjoyed it more than Feraligatr. xD; Maybe for designs reasons. Typhlosion kicks both of them imo, though ~ <3 The grass starter I dislike the most is probably the new one, Snivy. Everyone seems to love it which is one thing that gets me annoyed off the bat, but also, I think it's just weird looking. (I really needs to get more reasons for liking/disliking other than looks. xD)

If you could choose to get rid of one starter forever, which one would it be & why (considering what everyone else wants)?

I would probably get rid of Mudkip, because that huge meme of it that still floats around the Internet annoys the crap outta me. xD; I know, I know, bad reason. I don't have a good reason for any of them though, because I don't hate any of them, really. But I've never been fond of Mudkip or chosen it before.
