In HG I'm pretty sure my first Pokemon was a lv. 2 or 3 Pidgey. Maybe a Sentret but for some reason my mind's focusing more on Pidgey, so it was probably that. Wish I could remember. D:

Definitely don't remember for D/P/Pt, but I'm inclined to say it was Starly.

I think Starly was my first in DPPt

For HGSS, it was a Bellsprout...just so I could get an Onix in a trade. XD

My first capture in any of the gen IV games - in Diamond - was a Shinx. I sort of expected another Skitty or Meowth, and was surprised when I saw it was Electric. Other than occasionally making space for things I was training and leveling, it never left my team.

My first captures in both Pearl and Platinum were also Shinxes, and very deliberately.

Shinx that I used for the rest of the game and later transferred to Soul Silver in Diamond. And a Pidgey in Soul Silver that I evolved and kept right up until the elite four

When I started playing 4th gen I was lucky encounter rate wasn't time based in Platinum (for the most part), I could only play during the night so if it was like HGSS I would've missed out on certain Pokémon.

Gamefreak, if you ever read this, I want to know why you troll Pidgeot. Talonflame has Gale Wings, Staraptor has good stats and Close Combat, Swellow has Guts, even freaking Fearow has Drill Run. And you troll Pidgeot with Big Pecks, Hurricane, and 10 measly base Speed points. Why, Gamefreak? Is the original bird not good enough for you?

Pretty sure is was a Shinx in D/P. Used through-out the whole game.
And don't remember HG/SS. Probably a Pidgey

Starly and Hoothoot, i always use them as i encounter them early on and i tend to linger with them for a while, they might not be the BEST but they are certainly capable of doing their flying duties!

Starly for Diamond and Platinum, Sentret for HG and Hoothoot for SS. Starly and Hoothoot are the best normal/flying types in my opinion. For Sentret in HG, though, I never had an official pure normal typpe on my team. so i decided to capture a Sentret for my team.

I'm not sure what my first Pokemon in DPPt was, but I think it was either Bidoof or Starly. I want to say it was Bidoof in Diamond (the first gen 4 game I played), but I have no clue what it was in the other versions.

In HG/SS, I think it was Hoothoot. It could have been Sentret on HG, but I think I started both games at night, so Hoothoot seems more likely.

On Diamond the first pokemon I captured was a starly. I caught it almost immediately after getting my pokeballs.

On Heartgold I think I caught Slowpoke first. I don't really remember it too well.

HG/SS, I think it was rattata.
And in DPPt, it was Starly.

In SS it was a Mareep that I then used in a solo run, but overall I think it was a Starly or a Shinx in Pearl. I always catch one or both of them early on, so there's a 99.999% chance that it was them and a .001% chance that it was a Kricketot.
