the first time i aver played Sapphire (In japanese) i picked Treecko, but i didn't play that far. the one time i made it far then, was with Torchic, and in English, I only choose Torchic, and get the other starters later.
Firered/Leafgreen was a bit more complex, since the /johto legendary is based on the starter, I picked Charmander at first, then i went with bulbasaur and got the other 2 later.

For Ruby and Emerald I picked Treeko, cause he looks awesome, and grass types are cool.

For Fire-red I picked Charmander, because I really liked him.

When I first played Sapphire I picked Treecko, just because I had never started with a grass-type before. On Fire Red, I chose Charmander, just like I did in Red.

I always pick Bulbasaur in my FireRed game. I wub him!
The first time with Sapphire, I chose Torchic I believe (that was seven years ago...) I never chose Treeko, I hate the thing. I've alternated between Torchic and Mudkip, and my current Emerald game I restarted I chose Mudkip. I like him better.

Gotta love those Grass types :D
Agreed, Grass types are always the least used out of the starters but Sceptile's my all time favourite pokemon :D

I always choose the grass-types, so Bulbasaur was obvious for me, but in the RSE series, I chose Mudkip. Just liked him better! But yeah, in every other game, it's been grass-types!

When I first played Ruby, I chose Swampert as my starter because all of the other ones seemed weak to me at the time (I was a young age, so...). He actually turned out to be really good, and I grinded him up to Lv.100 by the time I got to Steven.

In LeafGreen, a couple months after beating Ruby, I chose Bulbasaur because it was like my favorite Pokemon at the time. I grinded him up to Lv.100 once more, but even then I couldn't beat the Elite Four... >_<

Wehn I got my hands on Sapphire, I was a bit smarter. I chose Torchic this time for a fresh experience, and did well.

Then I got FireRed. I hated how I could not beat the E4 in LeafGreen, so my instict told me to go for Squirtle because of how well Swampert had done. Good choice for me. I beat the game with him and an Articuno.

And of course, I finally got Emerald. Looking for a new and fresh experience, I chose Treeko. Bad choice. I was stuck on Flannery for a while and I'm still trying to beat Steven. Oh well.

Overall, water starters sit well with me.

Definitely Charmender, it's the best choice because flame is cooler than leaf or water. LOL. Although it's hard to battle with Brock, I think once you strength up Charmender, you can win the match. Besides that, once it involves into Charlizard, it could be the best in your pocket.

Pokemon Ruby or Emerald= Usually Torchic

Pokemon Fire Red = Either Squirtle or Charmander
Now, I know Bulbasaur has the type advantage against Brock and Misty...but
1. I am not very fond of grass types and
2. I think it's pretty freaking pathetic that vine whip...a staple grass type move...only has 10 PP, while Ember and Water Gun have 25 PP

The first time I played Ruby, I chose Torchic....overall he's my favorite of the three. I can't remember who I chose for my first playthrough of LG, but in my most recent one I chose Squirtle. And in FR, I chose Charmander.

For me it was Bulbasaur and Mudkip :3

Kind of related, it made me laugh.. i have never ever chosen Charmander in any of my playthroughs, so i named a Chiptune song i composed ( uses the Pokemon intro melody ) after it. ( Called 'I never Chose Charmander' )

Useless info, i know... but the song's on my Youtube channel (link in sig).
