I always picked Cyndaquil over the rest. I love how good he can be in a battle and what a good choice he was against the gym leaders!

Cyndaquil, because Typhlosion is very cool.
In 2nd gen I always picked Cyndaquil over Totodile back then because I didn't know how good Totodile was.
And in 4th gen, I pick Totodile over Cyndaquil since Totodile is a Physical Attacker while Cyndaquil is a Special Attacker which I don't like very much.

Cyndaquil.

When I played gold for the first time, I had a suspicion when I saw the silver watching the Pokemon lab out of the window, its position was prefixed in the Pokeball of Cyndaquil, I did not choose not handle it because the silver would steal.

I chose Cyndaquil, because whenever I can't choose between the three starters I always default to the fire type. Honestly though, if I were to start again, I would choose Chikorita. It's the cutest starter ever, in my opinion, and it has a pretty solid moveset.

I've literally only used Chikorita once, and if i recall correctly it was because I had just watched an anime episode with Ash's Chikorita/Bayleef messing things up. It's always between Totodile and Cyndaquil, and normally i go with Totodile. It just depends on if I want to have him as my main surfer, or catch a different water pokemon.

I feel that my answer will be completely unoriginal, but I've always chosen Cyndaquil. He was my first choice the first time, and always will be.

I regard all pokemon very highly, whether they look good or whether they're strong, but this thread said "Starter", so my answer is Totodile, making my opinion clear regarding Feraligator's worth in the end of the game and Croconaw in the middle. The Aquatic Gator has a considerable offence, both magically and physically, the starter version is oh-so cute. (Feel free to disagree.)

Disclaimer: For those who have played both the original Gold/Silver AND HeartGold/SoulSilver, you'll know that the plot doesn't change that much, but the game improves by so much, am I right? (For those who don't know about HeartGold/SoulSilver, we'll respect you by not discussing it in depth in this thread.)

I chose Totodile for a reason I cannot remember haha. What I do remember though, is that it proved to be a beast on my team. Being a noob, I taught it cut and it still proved unstoppable when it came to the Elite Four. XD

Cyndaquil for three reasons:
  • It's cute.
  • It is the perfrect choice for begginers like me.
  • It's last evolution is more cooler than the other starter's.

I think i'm gonna choose the rest in my next gameplays and see what i can do

Cyndaquil is always my starter of choice in the Johto series games, give Typhlosion Flamethrower, Shadow Claw, Earthquake and Hidden Power, and it becomes an unstoppable force! (except that one time when SoulSilver came up with a Shiny Totodile on release date...)

I was always so indecisive when choosing one of the second gen starters. Usually I have a favorite starter from each generation but I truly love all of the Johto starters and their evolved forms equally.

I usually choose Cyndaquil on my Crystal because Typhlosion is awesome! Sometimes, I'll pick Totodile instead for a good Water type. I almost never pick Chikorita. In my Gold and Silver games, I pick the two starters I didn't choose in Crystal. It helps to get one hundred and fifty Pokemon to withdraw from Stadium 2 if I pick my favorite in Crystal and the other two in my other Gen II games.

Totodile! I've always picked Totodile, and I always will. It holds a special place in my heart, mainly because of nostalgia. Haha.

I picked Cyndaquil when I played Pokémon Heartgold, but the next times I'll pick the other ones too. =)

I actually pick all three in order to correspond with each game. For example, when I played Gold, I played as Totodile. In Silver, I played as Cyndaquil (which I know kinda sounds odd). And in Crystal, I played as Chikorita.

Everyone has their right to be the very best. I hope everyone accomplishes that dream.

I've tried all three, but Cyndaquil's the best. Way too adorable.

I went with Cyndaquil, the cute little bugger. Then he evolved and just got more and more awesome, until Typhlosion became my first lvl. 100 starter, being pretty much the main reason I could beat Red when I was a kid.

I picked Chikorita. I don't know why. I've always been attracted to the grass type.
