Which starter did you choose?

I chose torchic for ruby and sapphire
I chose charmander for fr/lg

June 28th, 2008, 12:36 AM
I chose torchic and charmander... I always choose the fire pokemon.

June 28th, 2008, 3:19 AM
I chose Treecko.
Then I chose Treecko again because Sceptile is simply awesome.
In FR/LG, I chose Charmander, then somehow started liking Squirtle.

June 28th, 2008, 3:24 AM
Ruby: Torchic
Sapphire: Mudkip
FR: Charmander
LG: Squirtle
Emerald: Treecko.

Notice that Ruby is red and Torchic is Fire which is red, Sapphire is blue and Mudkip is Water which is blue, and then Emerald is green and Treecko is grass which is green!

June 28th, 2008, 3:58 AM
I chose Squirtle for FR/LG cause I love it to bits and always go with the water starter, lol. But I kinda broke my own rule with R/S, I chose Mudkip the first time but the second time round went with Torchic. I def preferred playing it with Torchic. Blaziken was so awesome.

June 28th, 2008, 4:01 AM
squirtle is well cool...to be honest iv started each game again like 4 times so i picked all of them but...i chose squirtle and treeko first

June 28th, 2008, 3:36 PM
Emerald: I choose Torchic this time, last time I choose mudkip.
Leafgreen: Charmander

June 29th, 2008, 12:55 PM
Emerald:Treecko because i think thats the hardest starter for R/S/E and i like a pokemon game with a challenge plus ive completed the game already with Torchic and Mudkip.
Firered:Squirtle because its cool XD.

June 29th, 2008, 1:03 PM
for my Ruby i chose Torchic and for mt Firered I chose Squirtle XP

June 29th, 2008, 1:15 PM
I picked Bulbasaur for my latest FireRed playthrough and Torchic for Emerald

June 29th, 2008, 1:26 PM
On Sapphire(which I can't play anymore, I broke my GBA!) I chose Mudkip, because I always choose the water starter. I like how they always evolve faster, or at least seem like it.

June 29th, 2008, 1:34 PM
I've chosen them all, but the first times i picked Mudkip and Charmander, personal prefrence, thats what I always use to choose my starter for the first time i play.

sanny the hedgehog
June 29th, 2008, 2:05 PM
squirtle and treeko, because their just to awesome!

June 29th, 2008, 2:25 PM

July 1st, 2008, 4:53 AM
Fire Red- Charmander
Leaf Green- Bulbasaur
Emerald- Torchic
Saphire- Mudkip
Ruby- Treeko

July 1st, 2008, 5:42 AM
I always pick the fire types, excluding RSE, where I'll always pick Treecko <3

July 1st, 2008, 5:42 AM
I've restarted numerous times so I've used all of them. For my current Emerald file, I'm using Blaziken.

July 1st, 2008, 7:29 AM
I always pick fire-types. Torchic, Charmander and all. Besides, they rock XD.

July 1st, 2008, 8:33 AM
mudkip and bulbasaur...water pokemon FTW
but fire when it comes to most situations lol

July 1st, 2008, 9:02 AM
Well for a trainer like me... xD the strongest pokémon is the best pokémon. I don´t prefer Treecko or Mudkip because Treecko won´t have any good attacks and Mudkip´s attack stat is just so horrible so that´s the reason why I choose always Torchic. It has the highest attack stats and whit Sky Uppercut and Blaze Kick you are able to beat e4.

In LG and FR I prefer Charmander because its attacks and its moves are much more better ones. Venusaur I think is pretty useless peace of junk and Blastoise is way too easy to beat.

July 1st, 2008, 11:57 AM
I chose Mudkip in my initial run through Sapphire, and Squirtle in both my first run through Red and through Leaf Green. My very first pick was always the Water starter until Diamond (I choose Chimchar instead)

July 1st, 2008, 1:09 PM
In every single game that I've ever owned except for Diamond (Where I picked Turtwig) and Yellow (where you were Pika-Screwed), I've picked the fire starter. Now all I have is FR and EM, with Charmander and Blaziken. After I migrate them to my Diamond, I'm going to restart and get the waters.

July 1st, 2008, 4:20 PM
For me, it was:

Ruby & Sapphire: Torchic & Treecko (respectively)
Emerald: Torchic
FireRed: Charmander
LeafGreen: Squirtle

For RSE, I chose what I did, because I wasn't, and still am not, keen on Mudkip; despite the advantages it holds. Torchic was the first Fire type I chose from first playing a Generation-based game, (since Generation I & II had me choosing Squirtle and Totodile, respectively) Treecko, again, was chosen over Mudkip because of my disliking for it, and currently, I still have never used Mudkip, except for Marshtomp; its evolution, in a Battle Tent.

I obtained LeafGreen, first, and thus, continued my choice of starting with the Water type Starter, since other than Generation III, the Water type was a high-stander for me, above the other types for that Generation, but due to the different Legendary dogs you could obtain, in FR/LG, when I obtained FireRed, I chose Charmander, to obtain the next Legendary dog. (as I had obtained Raikou, from LG, and already restarted with Bulbasaur)

The Bringer!
July 1st, 2008, 4:49 PM
I've used pretty much every starter because I reset so much, but currently it's:
Emerald-Mudkip (I was able to nick name it IHerdULiek XD)
Leaf Green-Squirtle

July 1st, 2008, 5:07 PM
I used Chimchar, Torchic.

i tend to choose mudkip in emerald, cuz i cant beat watson otherwise.

July 2nd, 2008, 11:48 AM
well, it might seem weird, but i refuse to break from my habit of always picking the fire starter. which has led to man hours of level grinding before a gym, and has also led to having their final form before the third gym on at least 4 occasions.

July 2nd, 2008, 11:59 AM
Fire Red- Charmander
Leaf Green- Bulbasaur

And, I sometimes choose the fire types but on the fr/lg i chose charmander and rse- I chose torchic all the time.

July 2nd, 2008, 8:26 PM
Fire Red - Bulbasaur

Sorry if my spelling is off, haven't slept in a few days

July 3rd, 2008, 12:53 PM
The odd things about my choices were that the ones I originally picked turned out not to be my favourites.

So for Red, I picked Squirtle (admittedly this was the very first time I ever saw Pokémon), but now my favourite is Charmander.

For Silver (and Crystal) I chose Cyndiquil, though now I prefer Chikorita.

Ruby was the only one I got it right which was Mudkip.

So yes, my tastes appear to have changed over the years.

July 6th, 2008, 5:03 AM
Ruby - Treecko
Sapphire - Torchic
FireRed - Bulbasaur

In Ruby, I chose Treeko because I thought Torchic was to girly and Mudkip and its evolutions weren't my type.

I FireRed (when I had it), I chose Charmander because I already had a Blastoise in Blue and I wanted a challenge.

July 7th, 2008, 7:14 AM
LeafGreen: Squirtle
Ruby: Treecko

July 11th, 2008, 10:55 AM
In the Kanto games I usually choose Squritle, but I sometimes need change and go for Bulbasaur.

In the Hoenn games, however, I usually just choose Mudkip. Torchic and Treeko don't really interest me.

July 11th, 2008, 11:06 AM
FR/LG: Squirtle, Bulbasaur
R/S/E: Torchic, Treeko
D/P: Chimchar, Turtwig
So there you have it. Those are the starters that I chose for my games not including Crystal, Gold, Silver, even though I have those.

July 11th, 2008, 11:45 AM
I chose Treecko.
Then I chose Treecko again because Sceptile is simply awesome.
In FR/LG, I chose Charmander, then somehow started liking Squirtle.

Because it was pwning you butt.

In ruby it was torchic and in FR it was charmander

Squirtle and Midkip. I choose the water type.

mysterio x
July 11th, 2008, 6:29 PM
well in my case it doesn't really matter since I end up dumping them in the deposit box and changing my team every nw and then.
But most of the times I started a new game I chose the fire type pokemon since they always seem to be more offensivly orientated.

July 11th, 2008, 8:38 PM
Torchic is GREAT in the longrun especially against e4

Miss Insanity
July 11th, 2008, 10:41 PM

July 16th, 2008, 7:57 PM
Sapphire: Torchic, because he evolves into a freakin ninja phoenix!
Fire Red: Charmander ... I mean c'mon.
Leaf Green: Squirtle, he was my first starter ever back in the day.

I have since restarted my game on Sapphire and Fire Red so I can get all those starters on my Diamond file.

Ruby: Mudkip - He looked pretty interesting, and I had never taken a water type before
LeafGreen: Charmander - I took him back in Red, so I figured why not again
Emerald: Treeko - By then I had realized the sheer awesome power that was Sceptile

July 17th, 2008, 2:01 PM
r/s/e- I picked mudkip fr/lg- I chose charmander for no reason

July 17th, 2008, 2:47 PM
I chose Treecko and Bulbasaur. I like to use the grass starter first then usually the fire starter. If for some reason I choose to replay the game a third time, I choose the water starter.

July 17th, 2008, 3:09 PM
r/s/e I chose all 3 lol Mudkip in sapphire, Torchick in ruby and Treecko in emerald and on Fr/Lg I chose Charmander and Squirtle. When I completed my dex on emerald I chose cyndaquil I love the fire starters and then water im not big on the grass starters

July 29th, 2008, 3:11 AM

August 2nd, 2008, 3:29 PM
Leaf green : Bulbasaur ( wrong choise )ut,i have blastoise too
RSE : Treeecko ( easy for face legendary ex.rayquaza )
Fire red : not play

August 2nd, 2008, 3:34 PM
In either Sapphire or Emerald, I can't remember which, I choose Mudkip. In FireRed I choose Charmander.

August 2nd, 2008, 4:02 PM
I ALWAYS grab the Fire starters, in D/P this was almost a necessity due the the lack of fire types in sinnoh.
Although if given the option i wud of grabbed eevee. (yes i was the rivals first pokemon in yellow so it is classed as a starter)

August 3rd, 2008, 5:09 PM
-Torchic for Ruby (Liked Blaziken at first)
-Treecko for Sapphire (Grew to like Sceptile more than the other starters)
-Charmander for Fire Red
-Squirtle for Leaf Green
-Treecko for Emerald

August 3rd, 2008, 7:46 PM
I usually get the fire starters; Charmander in Fire Red, and Torchic in Emerald. I chose Piplup when I started my Pearl game, but I think I'll restart it so I can choose Chimchar. It feels like wild fire Pokémon tend to suck a bit, hahaha!

August 4th, 2008, 4:36 AM
I always chose, Squirtle & Mudkip, as I liked Blastoise & Swampert, respectively.

August 4th, 2008, 7:11 AM
Torchic on R/S/E = I had all three.
Charmander on FR/LG
Cyndaquil on G/S/C

In FR, I've always used Charmander <333, but once, I did try using Bulbsaur ^^
In Sapphire, I keep on using Treecko. x3

April 9th, 2009, 8:29 AM
I've usually liked most of them, except for three four (Squirtle, Totodile, Treecko and Piplup).

Sapphire 1: Torchic (for no apparent reason except that I wanted a Blaziken with Fly)
Sapphire 1: Mudkip (because it seemed like a fun Pokémon (god, so lame explanation))
Emerald: Mudkip (because I am in love with Marshtomp ^____^)
Leaf Green 1: Bulbasaur (because I am in love with Ivysaur ^____^)
Leaf Green 2: Charmander (because when I played LG 1 I thought Venasaur looked awful)

Depends on the game. For Ruby, I got Torchic, for Sapphire, I got Mudkip, and when I re-buy Emerald I'll have Treeko. For Fire Red I got Charmander, and when I re-buy Leaf Green I'll have Bulbasaur.

When I was eight years old, I was in love with Torchic, but Mudkip was adorable too xDD And I loved Charmander :3

April 9th, 2009, 9:30 AM
Blue: Squirtle
Gold: Chikorita (Later traded for Quilava)
Sapphire: Treecko
Diamond: Turtwig (didnt use beyond level 18, got roserade)

April 9th, 2009, 12:55 PM
I chose Squirtle for FireRed; but it doesn't matter since I'm doing a normal Monotype challenge and haven't been using him. ;)
I usually choose Charmander.

On Ruby (which I just got yesterday!! Hoozah!!) I chose Torchic. I usually do choose the fire Pokemon.

Though, Piplup is kinda cute. (he is a new starter, right? him, Chimchar and I think Turtwig?)

..well umm.. lets see..

Emerald - Mudkip (..I really regret this.. I wanted a Treecko. :()
Leaf Green - Me (..well.. since I'm not really a fan of Bulbasaur and Charmander.... I chose myself!:) )

April 10th, 2009, 4:58 PM
