It's a close call between Infernape and Torterra. Depends on whether I feel like using a mixed sweeper or a bulky tank.

On top of that, I love the fairly obscure mythological references that went into both pokémons' designs.

Infernape.

It's offensive.
It has a good Atk and Sp. Atk, which is good.

That's all.

And it's a Fire-type, I love Fire-types.

Chimchar...Sp.Att \Att ridiculous! Infernape is good for competitive and just for the storyline and gyms, after all, when he becomes a Monferno he learns Mach Punch (i think) and you can go and wreck everything from the first 3 gyms, Crasher Wake is not a problem too.

I like both the Chimchar and the Piplup family. Chimchar's family has amazing special attack, attack and speed - exactly what I love in a Pokemon. I still have it on my Pearl team for many years. A great member for sure! As for Piplup's family, its Steel-type gives it many resistances, plus it has great special attack as well. Although its speed is a little lackluster, I don't mind it as it has been quite reliable every time I used it on my teams.

I go with turtwig most of the time because of its feature of learning both water and grass moves.

I chose Turtwig because it grows to obtain good bulk and above average offensive stats, coupled with a movepool that is better than Piplup's imo. Chimchar was just overrated and I didn't like its design as much as the other two. Empoleon's typing was a bit of a putoff, as well as the lack of specially offensive moves.

I did 2 playthroughs of Diamond. The first one I used Infernape. The second one I used Empoleon, and I just tend to find water types more successful. However, I like fire types more, but I didn't really like the monkey trio.

Had to give it to the Penguin.

Piplup by far.
I think it has the best attacks and, when fighting the other starters, has the most power. Also, it's a Water Type, and Water Type Pokemon are best pokemon. (I can't find Piplup as an emoticon, so here is one of a pokeball that contains a piplup.)

Honestly, although i've picked Chimchar more times than the other two put together, as a Pokémon itself I like Turtwig the best. It just has some neat stuff behind it and it feels reminiscent of the safaris. And I think that's cool.

Piplup.
Solely because Empoleon was one of my most favourite Pokemon when I started the game. Turtwig comes second because it's cute; Chimchar doesn't appeal to me much, I like Chimchar but just not as much as the other two.

Turtwig is definitely my pick most of the time because of it's defense and bulky-ness. Plus the fact that it learns ground-type moves gives it that edge on fire-types.

I originally liked and planned to choose Piplup, but last second I changed my mind and decided to pick Turtwig! He's green and he's such a shy little turtle. :3 I couldn't say no to him.

I like all 3 of the starters, though!

Piplup is so cute and Empoleon is so damn awesome. I just love these two. xD
He's not that good in competitive battles, Infernape is the best when it comes to that but I still always chose Piplup as my starter. The game is so much easier with him in my party lol.

Piplup. I so love it, it's design is very clever, it's Typing is very good, and alongside Ice allows it to hit everything except itself for Neutral Damage. It has good Defensive Typing, being weak to only Fighting, Ground, and Electric.

Turtwig is also cool :D

Chimchar must die. I hate it.

Chimchar, but then again I usually tend to side with fire type, plus Infernape beats all the other gen 4 starters.

Fighting > Steel
Fire > Grass
