In my Diamond, I first caught a Starly. I caught a Shinx in Platnium.
I don't exactly remember who I caught first in SS... I think it might have been a Mareep. Not too sure, though.
All the cool kids had a signature :o

In SoulSilver, my first caught Pokemon would be either a Pidgey or a Sentret. Or was it a Ratata? I don't remember.

In Pearl and Platinum, it would have to be either Bidoof or Starly.

In Pearl, I caught a Shinx in the route above Sandgem town. I named him Shadow because Luxray's hair reminds me of Shadow's quills, lol.

Either after capturing my first Pokemon or after finishing some battles, not sure, I also got Pokerus that early in Pearl.

As for HGSS, my first capture was a Pidgey. I named him Peanuts, after my original Pidgey in Gold.
Even if it's a short life, burn hot and bright and overtake the moment. That's my way of life.

When I got Pokemon Pearl, I was lucky enough for the first Pokemon I caught in Gen IV was a Shinx that I nicknamed Lithium for it being an electric type.

My first catch in the fourth generation was a Starly in Pokemon Diamond, who I used in my team. Turned out to be quite a fighter.

DPPt, it was probably Bidoof or Starly. As for HGSS, I know the first thing I caught in SS was a Hoothoot. I was really excited that my copy had arrived (first time I got an imported game), but it was night time when I started playing. I just decided to catch stuff I saw even though they were old Pokemon, but you know, it was a new game. And the first thing I ran into was a Hoothoot I thought I wouldn't keep. I named her Cool and took her all through the game with me. n___n This is probably why I like owls so much now and Noctowl became one of my favorites because of this playthrough. So yeah!
Bang bang!

Into the room, I know you want it
Bang bang, all over you, I'll let you have it
Wait a minute, let me take you there
