Hey, what are your favorite Fire, Water or Grass Pokèmon, that are not starters?

For me it's
Fire: Magmortar
Water: Poliwrath
Leaf: Vileplume

This section is for questions about games, not about favorite Pokemon. I'll just toss this into Pokemon General, where it belongs. :)

edit: Might as well.

Grass: Breloom
Fire: Camerupt
Water: Slowbro

April 23rd, 2012, 9:57 AM
Fire: Magmortar. This guy is easily my powerhouse in any team I've used him in, plus his design is just awesome.

Water: Very difficult since water's easily my favorite type.....either Vaporeon or Gyarados...Vaporeon probably wins out though since it was one of my first water types I used.

Grass: Victreebell. Ah, yes, good old Victrebell...Definetly one of the best pokemon in any of my LeafGreen runs.

Fire: Camerupt
Water: Walrein
Grass: Tie between Exeggutor and Lilligant

April 23rd, 2012, 10:59 AM
Fire: Probably Arcanine. Though this made me realise that I hardly use non-starter Fire-types.
Water: Azumarill. Really saved me during my first playthrough of Ruby.
Grass: Toss-up between Breloom and Sawsbuck.

April 23rd, 2012, 11:19 AM
Fire: Arcanine
Water: Poliwhirl
Grass: Breloom

April 23rd, 2012, 11:26 AM

Grass is Victreebel

April 23rd, 2012, 11:36 AM
Fire: Litwick! Though if I want to go with a pure fire I suppose it would be Ninetales.
Water: Milotic
Grass: Bellossom

Grass: Ferrothorn; there's nothing more amusing than walling the opponent with a metal, spiky, durian.

Fire: not sure, but I'm thinking Chandelure. It hits crazy hard, and I've always wanted a Ghost/Fire Pokemon before Gen V.

Water: Gyarados or Vaporeon. I don't know why, but I like them.

April 27th, 2012, 5:39 PM
I guess buizel, ninetails, and bellosum

Water - Gonna have to say Quagsire since it was a bro back in Colosseum and has the most adorable face I've ever seen.
Grass - Tough one but I'm going with Exeggutor due to how much it helped me out in my Fire Red run and the fact that it can be such a troll when the weather's sunny too.
Fire - I choose Houndoom for nostalgia's sake back when I used one in Silver and also in Platinum as well, still owns like a boss after all these years.

April 28th, 2012, 9:57 AM
I guess my favorites would be:

Fire- Ninetales
Water- Oshawott
Grass- SimiSage

April 28th, 2012, 4:39 PM
Tough but what a fun question!! And I really can't choose between the water types, so I'm just gonna list these idc.

Cloyster, Gyarados, Quagsire, Omanyte

YES so I like Cloyster because I love shells basically, so same reason for Omastar (and he has tentacles but w.e), Gyarados was always on my list of fav Pokémon in general and Quagsire because I CAN RELATE SO MUCH TO HIM /ability @ unaware and I love his typing and design etc.

I love the whole Vileplume line really. Poison is one of my favourite types and I LOVE the design and the concept too, spores, stuff like that. I AM IN LOOOVE with Gloom too because yeah well same like Quagsire it reminds me of myself and all around they're just so.. sort of mischievous looking, they just look evil-natured lmao and I love it.

Apart from there not really being many fire types besides starters, Arcanine is a cutie and his concept of a chinese legendary dog being is really cool and I love his design anyway.

Guys keep in mind no listing, give reasons! ;(

April 29th, 2012, 4:12 AM
Fire: Arcanine bcuz it is the best fire type pokemon imo
Water: Vaporeon bcuz it is an eeveelution
Grass: Lilligant bcuz it is my fave grass type

May 5th, 2012, 3:28 PM
Fire: Ninetales
Water: Slowking
Grass: Tangela
All of these are some epic non-starters in my opinion.

May as well put this on

Breloom) It is both extremely cute and awesomely powerful.

Shellos) It is the most adorable thing on the face of the earth.
No debates.

It's evolutions are epic too.

So basically I just picked the cutest pokemon of each type. No debates. These are the cutest. Ever.

None of the starters are my favourites for any of these types so that's easy. XD

Cherrim is my favourite grass types, which is obvious if you've known me for more than ten minutes. Litwick is my favourite fire type (possibly tied with Houndour). And Vaporeon is my favourite water type. The first was an easy choice. The fire types... I don't like most fire types--I don't dislike them either, they just don't stand out to me--but those two are great so I can usually never pick exactly which one I like best. (While we're at it, I like Chandelure a whole lot too.) Vaporeon used to be my favourite Pokemon back in first gen when I'd flip-flop between it and Raichu for overall favourite so its standing is probably leftover from that.

For water I choose Suicune since he is my favourite Water and legendary I like his backstory the northen wind.

For Fire Arcaninene I alwzys loved him when I was younger

And for Grass breloom It's one of the two pokemon I made my "partner" when I decided not to use my starter.

May 8th, 2012, 7:21 AM
Water - Lumineon, I just love it's design and it appeals to me.
Fire - Rapidash, since Gen I I've thought this Pokémon was fierce and beautiful.
Grass - Victreebel, Something about it makes me like it.

May 8th, 2012, 7:28 AM
Fire - Ninetales (it's my favourite pokémon full stop never mind just fire lol!)

Water - Vaporeon (it's been a fave of mine ever since Pokémon Stadium I totally fell in love with it haha)

Grass - Parasect (I use it on a lot of my teams and it's saved my butt more times than I'd like to mention lol)

Fire: Houndoom has been my favourite Fire critter since Gen II. I love its typing, its stats, its design, its movepool... well, everything about it! I always imagine it being like the Pokemon version of Cerberus, which is kinda cool!

Water: This one's really hard, as Water's easily my favourite type. There's Kingdra, Milotic, Lapras and Lanturn duking it out for the win... and I'd probably have to go with Lapras as the victor. I've used one in every game when I had the chance to, and I've never regretted it. As well as this, I still have memories of liking it in the anime as Ash's transportation. Maybe the nostalgia is a powerful factor.

Grass: This is the opposite of the one above, as I really really dislike Grass critters. The only one that comes close to getting my approval (ha!) is Cradily. It's slow and ugly and doesn't have a great moveset... but there's something strangely endearing about it. In any event, it's certainly much better than Armaldo!

May 8th, 2012, 12:58 PM
Fire: Definitely Arcanine! He's been one of my favorite Pokemon from the start.

Water: Floatzel! When DP came I out, I was really excited to know that there was a weasel Pokemon. I caught one in Pearl and named her after my ferret at the time.

Grass: Grass is tough since I'm not a huge fan, but I think I'll say Exeggutor! I use him a lot in the gen 1 games.

May 11th, 2012, 12:28 AM
Fire: My favorite is Ninetales. I always preferred it over Arcanine, and through the generations it's still my favorite Fire type.

Water: Toss up between Kyogre and Wailord. Both were main stays in my party on Sapphire, and it's the only time where I can remember having two Pokemon of the same type on my team.

Grass: Aside from starters, I rarely use the Grass type. If I had to pick, I'd go with Breloom, since it was the first Shiny Pokemon that I caught (as a Shroomish).

May 11th, 2012, 7:05 PM
Fire: Flareon: Looks nice and I like the Japanese name: Booster. Probably a strong contender in the first generation metagame, but I wouldn't yet know.

Water: Lanturn: Possessor of my single favourite type combination; very versatile.

Grass: Leavanny: The typing seems to work oddly well for the most part. I prefer it over Parasect as a matter of appearance and its ability to attack more strongly.

May 12th, 2012, 4:23 PM
Fire - Arcanine. If I'm not using Charizard or Typhlosion then Arcanine would definitely be my next choice as a fire type because not only is it awesome looking but it's stats are pretty good too.

Water - Kingdra. It can just as or even more effective in battle then any of the starters due to it's balanced stats and it's typing that only gives it one weakness.

Grass - Breloom. I'm not a big fan of many of the grass type pokemon that aren't starters but the one that really became a favorite of mine back in 4th gen. was Breloom. Nowadays, Breloom can have the technician ability which can make it even more dangerous in battle.

May 12th, 2012, 6:18 PM
I'm not a fan of starer Pokemon anyway so this is no biggy for me!

Fire - I honestly don't like many Fire types, but one I have always quite liked since its release was Pansear. That's about it though, I honestly don't like Fire types much at all. :3

Water - Now this one is a hard choice! I'll have to go with Buizel since that's my all time favourite Pokemon due to being both tough and adorable and also being a weasel; but it was a close call between a lot of Pokemon here.

Grass - Another hard choice! Tbh I adore the majority of Grass types, but I guess my favourite is Sewaddle. It's just sooooo freaking adorable <3 Plus when it evolves it has so much power and a very interesting evolution line. :3

May 12th, 2012, 6:35 PM
Fire: This is the toughest for me, as there are very few Fire types I dislike. Although slightly, I'll go with Volcarona. I fellin love with it as soon as I saw it. Arcanine in a close Second, followed by Magmortar.
Water: Sharpedo. It's a shark that's a torpedo. And Dark. Octillery comes in second, followed by Quagsire.
Grass: I don't like grass-types much. I've always view them as inferior to Fire and Water, but there are a few I don't mind. So I go with Leafeon as my favorite, followed by Exeggutor and Victreebel.
