Since playing first time round I'm always swapping whenever I replay them but my main favourites still remain at Squirtle & Torchic.

Bulbasaur was the first choice, since I love grass Pokemon. This was in LG. In FR, I obviously chose Charmander; well, because I wanted to try something different.

Oh goodness, well, I know I got LeafGreen and chose Bulbasaur (since I chose Charmander the first time in Red/Blue, I wanted to switch it up). I can't remember if I chose Torchic or Mudkip in my Sapphire version. I know I didn't get it until a while after it came out, and because of that I know I was impressionable because I didn't get it until after the anime started airing. I think, since I liked Torchic in the anime, I chose Torchic for my first run-through. Then I chose Mudkip because I liked it better in my second and all consecutive playthroughs.

I chose Charmander in FireRed and Torchic in Emerald because I really like Fire-type Pokémon and they're over powered from early game to late game. They have advantages in gyms compared to Grass- and Water-type Pokémon so completing game is little faster. Before Torchic I chose Treeco and Mudkip in previous saves but then realized how good Blaziken can be with it's burning attacks.

Charmander and Torchic! Fire and dragon types are my favorite and since there is no dragon starter I chose the fire type. I love fire types!

I flip flop between Mudkip and Torchic, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. I like more of the bulkier Pokemon than anything. I like Charmander and Treecko, I'd just rather the other four.

In all my Hoenn games (my Ruby and my brother's Sapphire and Emerald) I chose Mudkip cos it's the easiest to use throughout the game plus I love Water-types.

I chose water type starters in all of my games. They have a great endurance while maintaining a good offense.

Mudkip and Squirtle were awesome. In my other playthroughs I chose Charmander in LG.

For LG my choice was Bulbasaur. I only ever got round to playing through that game once but my Bulby was with me the whole time! Such a reliable Pokemon, especially based on the Kanto gyms :3 In Hoenn my first ever starter was Torchic whom was adorable and then evolved and became kinda gross so I was very disappointed. In my latest run through I used Treecko which has surpassed all expectations and looks amazing in all stages! Grass types ftw o/

The best starters for me are:
FireRed-Leaf Green=Squirtle,Bulbasaur
Crystal-Gold-Silver=Cyndiquil
Ruby-Saphirre=Torchic

In some of them i cant even chose which is better so i put two :D

I agree with Sirius who doesnt like Blaziken

I played through with all 3 but the first one I chose was Torchick and to this day Blaziken is till one of my all time favorite pokemon because of that. I mean, it's a giant, fire breathing, kick-boxing chicken. What's not to love?
