    Gen 5 starters make me cry. The Gen 3 are all pretty good but my favorite(preevolution) is Treecko. If you count the final evolutions my favorite gen 3 is Torchic. Gen 4 are all pretty much equal. But, omg Gen 5 :' (

    Piplup, defs. Really cute, but I hate it when it evolves. It has powerful attacks, and it made me win on my battle with Cynthia. Also great for contests.

      Treecko. So much swag. I've picked the other two starters from that generation like once each and Treecko the other 10 times haha.

        I would honestly say all Fire-type are my favorites, but I don't really like Torchic for some reason...

        Aside of Fire-type, I like Oshawott and Snivy. Gen 5's starters are all kickass.

            Charmander because I like Charizard. Charizard could be dragon type imo. He looks like it :D I like Ash's Charizard. I like Charmeleon too. IIRC, Charmander was my first ever pokemon in Pokemon Red.

            My sig? It's a coincidence which I am happy about

              Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

              It was a hard toss up between Torchick and Chikorita but I choose Torchick.

              Here is what I look like, in case you were curious.
              Babalon is my mother, and she loves me.
              I'm an initiate of a secret society... Hmm, do secret societies have websites?

                If it isn't obvious already, Charmander.


                It all started with my Charmander in Pokemon Red. Oddly enough, its experiences in the game mirror my own experiences in real life. Just as how Charmander was greatly disadvantaged in the beginning stages of the Gen 1 games, I was a disadvantaged child. Sickly and bedridden, my only source of escape being my Gameboy and Pokemon Red. Helping Charmander grow from strength to strength in the game inspired me to want to grow from strength to strength to regain my health. Just like my Charmander, I set my mind and body to becoming better and stronger and I eventually got better. Just as my disadvantaged Charmander eventually evolved into a mighty Charizard, I was able to pull myself up and become a stronger person.

                  GSC Cyndaquil was so bro-tastic. Typhlosion has a neat cry and access to special Thunderpunch is too good in-game.

                    I almost always choose a fire type starter but Totodile is simply the best starter pokémon ever. His evolutions are awesome and i love his personality in the anime. Charmander would be a close second for me with cyndaquil in third.

                        ^ This, this, this, this, and this. I just absolutely love Charmander to death. He's an adorable little lizard that eventually evolves into a ferocious dragon! I mean, duh! For the other regions, I like Cyndaquil, Treecko, Turtwig, and Oshawott. c:

                            To be honest, the best & cutest starter Pokemon are all from the first generation. Bulbasaur, Charmander & Squirtle x) As the series progresses through each Generation, the cuteness starts to decrease, in my opinion. I mean they are all cute, just not "OMG SO CUTE" worthy x)

                            But Bulbasaur gets my vote

                              Cyndaquil. It's cute, powerful, has a good movepool, and is the Johto starter, my favorite region too.

                              Thinking of you, wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, and they share the same sky - one sky, one destiny.

                                As a kid, my stuffed Bulbasaur was my best friend. So when I got around to playing Red for the first time, I went with Bulbasaur. I've finished Pkmn Red 26 times in my life, and I picked Bulbasaur every time.

                                Give a man a fake plastic hand, and he'll choke himself with it. It's fun.

                                  Charizard is pure epicness. And don't even talk to me about Rock vs. FireFlying because I'm not gonna read!
