I'm a sucker for Fire types, so naturally, when I started Emerald, Cyndaquil was my selection. Doesn't help me much in the water, but there seems to be an abundance of Grass types to deal with them and few Fire types by comparison, so I cover that base immediately.

This means I will likely choose Charmander in Fire Red. However, as I now want to push a Shiny Nincada to Generation V as soon as possible, I have to try to complete at least SoulSilver and Emerald right now, and I'm hoping to get it cloned at that point. I can hope.

I choose Mudkip and charmander. Charmander has always been a favorite of mine and Mudkip is a perfect pokemon to start with in R/S/E

Bulbasaur, I just felt as if that Pokemon was epic. And Torchic, for my Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire. :D

I always pick Mudkip in RSE and Charmander in FRLG. At times I pick Torchic and Squirtle in RSE and FRLG respectively but I already set Mudkip and Charmander up as defaults.

On my first run of RSE (I have all 3 games lol) I chose Mudkip (Ruby) and Treecko (Sapphire and Emerald). Wasn't a big fan of Torchic (I only ever chose it once during all my replays)

For FRLG (I, once again, had both games. FR got destroyed after being lost for around a year and me finding it again stuck in the ground in my yard). I know I chose Bulbasaur in LG and I'm pretty positive I chose Squirtle in FR (I'm not a big fan of fire starters except cyndaquil).

In my early years of playing the series I've always picked the fire type Pokemon (Torchic and Charmander). Lately I decided to broaden my options and pick others. In my most recent play through I picked Squirtle.

When I got Sapphire (my first very own Pokémon game) my brothers told me to chose Mudkip but when I couldn’t beat Brawly I restarted the game and picked Torchic (which then became my favourite starter of all time <3 )

First time playing LeafGreen I started with Squirtle. I'm replaying it and I started off with Charmander this time. In Emerald I started with Torchic and I'm gonna restart it and use Treecko next time I play it.

Blue-Squirtle Crystal-Chikorita Ruby-Mudkip (If I HAD a Gen IV game, I'd pick Turtwig, hands down) Black-Tepig. What ever I thought looked best, really. But MAN, Mudkip's evolutions are ugly!

Treecko, Bulbasaur and Mudkip.

Treecko in Sapphire
Bulbasaur in Fire Red
Mudkip in Emerald

I remember it had a Hasty Nature. However I didn't care for it properly like I should have. Didn't have a good team in Sapphire, so I thought I might start with a different one, and since Fire starters are usually the most popular, I thought I might give Mudkip a chance. Have a stronger connection with it than Treecko, but there will always be that something special about Treecko.

Bulbasaur, well everyone loved Charizard/Charmander. I didn't want to be like everyone else, and Squirtle just didn't interest me as little Bulbasaur! Just got more of a cute factor from it, plus being first pokemon registered in a National Dex is pretty cool too.
Loved my Bulb/Ivy/Venusaur that much that it's in my dream team along with Cyndaquil/Quilava/Typhlosion, my first ever starter.

Mudkip, and Bulbasaur. I actually loved that Mudkip, so I was so sad when my save got accidentally deleted. Now I can't choose a Mudkip ever again.... :'(

Charmander/Treecko. I like Bulba/Ivysaur more than Charmander/Meleon, but I always found Charizard to be the coolest. Treecko... I fell in love with that Pokemon when I first saw it, and when it evolved into Grovyle I was so happy... he was so cool.

I never had Ruby, my sister did; she would let me reset all the time as long as I didn't save, but as a kid I had so much fun with it. So one day I had extra time with it and got to evolve Treecko and boy was I happy. I kept asking to save, but I couldn't. Eventually I got it, though: one Christmas I was doing the same thing again while my sister opened up a present. This present was Sapphire version. As soon as I realized, I pressed start, save, and A.... She was mad at me, but I finally got Ruby. :') Good times.

I usually go with the water starters because their base form designs appeal to me the most, but I have made an exception a couple of times. Ironically, the fire starters evolutions are usually my favorites. I feel guilty for not liking the grass(okay, why aren't they called "Plant" type? It makes way more sense) starters since I feel grass is an extremely underrated type.

I kinda wish there were more games like Yellow where I could use all 3 starters, but that would defeat the purpose of making a tough choice and cheapen the special bond you're encouraged to have with your starter.

Anyway, I chose Mudkip in Emerald and Squirtle in FireRed.

I picked Torchic, the little blazing bird. To tell you the truth, in Emerald I thought Steven was still the champion and so chose this little guy. But even though it turned out Wallace was, he was still my favourite starter of all time.

I haven't played FR/LG, so I don't own any Kanto Starters. I'd probably pick the cute squirtle, since generally I choose water starters .
