I chose Cyndaquil a lot just because I loved the look as a kid, now I choose Totodile over all. I simply love his stats and early evolution.

I went with Cyndaquil in my Gold version because it's strong and has that type advantage to Bugsy in the second gym, but then in Crystal I went with Totodile because it was cute in the anime (literally, that's why )

This was my least favourite gen starter-wise.

I liked Totodile the most, though. Simply because I like water over grass and fire.

They shouldn't have had a third gen of Fire/Fighting as a starter. Once was enough. Twice was fine. Three was pushing it.

I almost always went with Cyndaquil. He's so cute, and I always seem to start with the fire type. At least during my first play through.

The first time I played I decided to go with Totodile because I had a thing for Water types and I am happy that I did. He turned out to be a very valuable Pokemon throughout my entire journey because of his good strength. The other two I eventually used on later playthroughs and had decent success with as well although Meganium was really hard to train.

I've had playthroughs with each of them as I like all three of this gen!
But I think Cyndaquil is my most common choice : ) followed my Chikorita - she must have been the one I've used last too.

I've chosen all three at different points, but Totodile was my most common choice, followed by Chikorita, and then Cyndaquil. I usually have a preference for water types.

The cool thing about the Gold/Silver/Crystal, is that the first few gyms don't offer an immediate 'best' pick, so you don't have to be tied to Chikorita to have a nice experience.

Thus, I went with Cyndaquil (before realizing that the second gym is a bug gym, where Cyndaquil can pretty much solo the whole place in one go.) He's got good power, and looks cool and cute at the same time.

I went with Cyndaquil on my first run, and I remember it became a very powerful Typhlosion that I had for a few years. I felt like a boss with it :p

Totodile for me. My brother picked Cyndaquil so I picked his weakness. It was our way of playing until Gen 4 where I picked fire and he picked water.

Totodile. Feraligatr is simply the definition of a BAMF. <3

Cyndaquil FTW. I always choose Cyndaquil because Quilava and Typhlosion are total beasts. XD

I chose Tododile. It looks the coolest and I very rarely chose Squirtle in gen 1, since I love Charizard's looks and Bulbasaur was more useful against the first four gyms. I had a lot of fun with it, especially since it was my first Pokemon that could learn dark type moves (take that, pesky psychics! And, I totally didn't abuse the Alakazam imbalance in Gen 1...).

Really? My feraligator has lousy stats, though I still love it.

First time I ever played, I chose Cyndaquil because I was a fan of the Fire type. Since I like all three of the Johto starters, I switched around who I started with each time I played the game. But since I don't want to spend a lot of time building a team in the early game, I don't pick Chikorita as much as the other two. The last time I played, I started with Totodile, and he proved to be useful.

Well, when I initially started Gold, I went with Cyndaquil. I liked its design best at the time (still do adore it, actually) and it does fit my battling style best still, to this day.

After a try with Chikorita (which was... not all that great, although on more recent runs I've learned how to utilize it a bit more properly due to being smarter than I was back then) it was Totodile's turn... and I don't know why, but I fell in love with the little guy. So it's been Totodile ever since.

I started with a Totodile named Toto. So imaginative. I think my two friends and I decided to all choose different starters? Can't remember why I ended up with Totodile though.

I always chose Cyndaquil when I played Gold and Crystal ! I liked him the first time, then the rest just became tradition. ... Actually I did pick Chikorita once, but it just wasn't the same !

I usually go with fire types since you usually can't get a good fire type til later in the game. I always thought cyndaquil was the coolest-looking of the three.

That said, they're all good. Feraligatr makes a great HM slave and Meganium is a great buffer with light screen, reflect, synthesis, and sleep powder.

I don't remember which one I picked the first time I played the game, but my favorite starter of the three is definitely Cyndaquil. I loved fire types and Typhlosion was sweet
