    Mudkip in Ruby, though I have a slight suspicion that I may have chosen Torchic. I honestly can't remember.
    And I've yet to play either FireRed or LeafGreen (I should get to that...), but I would have chosen Bulbasaur since I've never used one before.

      I ALWAYS chose Treecko. After the anime, there was no question on which one I wanted. In Fire Red, it was squirtle. TBH, I'm not a big fan of dual type pokemon.

      Definitely Treecko. Ash's Grovyle had me hooked on it when I saw how cool he was in the anime.

          Mudkip and Charmander for me!
          On a later replay I started with Torchic and it was good, but I still somehow prefer Mudkip.

              RS= Torchic.

              E= Realized mistake, chose Mudkip.

              FRLG= Charmander, file got corrupted, Squirtle after then.

                  ALWAYS Treeko in R/S/E. No specific choice for FR/LG, although I usually go with Bulbasaur.

                  Mudkip in Ruby AND Emerald once it came out; just prefer it over the other two- The Treecko line really didn't learn great moves on its own :/
                  In LeafGreen, I like Bulbasaur the most, and picked it in my first playthrough, but I circulate through the three of them because they're all pretty great, haha.

                    In Ruby i chose Mudkip, cause i really loved it when these games came out, but in Emerald, i chose Treecko, because i realised that Treecko was stronger !

                        I chose Torchic and Charmander. FIRE FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                        Think about it this way: How rare are water types? You can just Surf or use a fishing rod. Grass trpes are easily found in tall grass, but fire types are few.

                        Also, fire types are great in battle. They have high attack, special attack, and speed stats, with generally good defense and special defense. They learn alot of powerful moves

                            FR/LG: Charmander
                            R/S/E: Mudkip
                            I mean, who doesn't liek Mudkipz? :3

                            On RSE, I chose Mudkip because it was all adorable and I just thought he was cool. And considering how powerful his final form it, it was a good choice.

                            For FR/LG I chose Charmander because... IT IS CHARMANDERRRRRRR!

                              In Leafgreen I choose Bulbasaur and in Emerald I choose Mudkip. I loved them they were awesome!

                                I got a Mudkip in R/S/E.

                                Basically.. when Mudkip evolves, he only gets one weakness. Unfortunately, he's quad-weak to it, but it's like a tougher Quagsire. I love it

                                In FR/LG, I've chose Bulbasaur because he's almost like a wall of defense, and not bad with special attacks either.

                                      When I first got Sapphire, my starter was Mudkip because I had played as Mudkip in Blue Rescue Team, which was my first Pokemon game. Then when I got FireRed, my first was Squirtle. Water is kind of my favorite type.

                                          I chose Charmander and Treecko for some really odd reason. Charmander wasn't bad at all, just hard to level up at times, but Treecko....honestly, what was I thinking? He isn't very good, and from then on I either went with Mudkip (Most used) or Torchic.
