First time playing R/S/E, I chose Torchic! :D
Though in my most recent restart I chose Treeko!

And in FR I chose Charmander (I love fire!) and in LF Bulbasaur, 'cause, y'know, it is LEAF GREEN after all. XD

Poor water types barely never get chosen with me, although I do make sure to go through the games with them atleast once. :D Just to be nice.

I don't favor any specific Pokemon cuz I used all starters and found out that Chikorita is very underrated, Charmander is overrated and Treeko is underrated.

First time I played Ruby I started with Treeko. I was thinking back to when I first got Blue version, and I started with Bulbasaur so my 13 year old self thought it would be cool to start with the grass starter again.

First run I did of RSE, I picked Treecko simply because it looked the coolest to me. After that though, I almost always picked either Mudkip or Torchic over Treecko because I had a tricky time getting through the game with the grass type.

FR/LG, it was usually Charmander, as I used to do in RBG. Sometimes Bulbasaur, and only once or twice with Squirtle.

In Kanto i always picked Bulbasaur because it was a great asset for the first few gyms and by the time i got to the others I wold always have a full team

In Hoen i was always was split between mudkip and torchic because both have great moves once fully evolved I loved Swampert's Muddy Water and Earthquake and Blazakin's Blaze Kick

In Johto I picked Cyndaquil for no specific reason other than looks

In Sinnoh i picked Turtwig usually because it helped with alot of gyms aand i liked its final form

As for whatever black and white's region is the answer is I never played it because I really disliked the new pokemon looks

Though I have some vague memory of owning a Combusken early in the game, before I really understood what to do.. I think I restarted o.o, so, officially, I chose Treeko first (I still have him on Sapphire C and Charmander. I've never really used anything other than a Charmander in the FRLG games.

The first time I played Sapphire, I chose Mudkip, I'm not exactly sure why, but I did. Ever since then I've always chosen the water starter for every game. (Except SoulSilver, I chose Cyndaquil)

Always Torchic. Tried playing with Trecko and Mudkip, but I didn't like them.

I usually always pick fire, so Torchic for me. I haven't had the opportunity to play FireRed yet, but I'd definitely pick Charmander.

Reason is, I haven't been able to play my GBA games for a long time till just recently. I have both Ruby and Sapphire now, but stores don't like carrying old GBA games anymore, so it's going to be a little tough finding myself FireRed.

I would paint an entire building for it though.

Mudkip and Charmander are my definite choices! I like double types in a starter's evolution line.

Fire types always.

Though... I like Feraligatr and Sceptile a lot, so sometimes I pick these instead of Typhlosion and Blaziken.

In FireRed I choose Charmander since It's my favorite Pokemon back then....

In Ruby I chose Treecko, Damn he really looks cool in the Anime!

And in Emerald I chose Mudkip so I can easily beat the Gyms....

Treecko is way too overrated by you guys :\ I chose it once, and it was really baaad... I'd always choose Torchic in Gen III.
In Gen I, I'd either choose Squirtle or Charmander. Bulbasaur is great, too, but I don't really like it that much, so yeah...

Mudkip, and than on my 2nd play through of sapphire I chose Treeko. On Firered I chose Squirtle, he is now a level 100 blastoise, and Ive had him since childhood, transferring him across every new pokemon game that comes out. His name is Sqwert, since I could not spell that well when I got the game around the age of six or seven. On my leaf green I chose charmander.

If I remember correctly (the first time I played Sapphire and LeafGreen were nine and eight years ago, respectively), I chose Torchic and Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur was probably the best starter in FR/LG for me since it blitzed through the first two gyms. I chose Torchic because it was cute. XD

Torchic and Squirtle, respectively. Normally, I'm a fire type mogul, but Firered (ironically) was my first ever Pokemon game, and I always though Blastoise was a badass. So I picked the turtle over the salamander. =P
