    Getting back into Pokemon after 5 years of being out of it... this is going to be a hard learning curve...
    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?

        I started off with a Torchic. I eventually evolved it into its final evolution. I don't know why, but I chose it, because May did in the anime. (My first choice was a Mudkip.) I don't exactly know where my charger is in order to charge the SP for me to play my game.) I really like Torchic. I didn't know the importance of natures back in the day. I also didn't know that Mudkip's second stage is part Ground, and would fair well against Wattson of the Mauville Gym. I didn't know. It's why I started over, and picked a Torchic. I played through the game with just that when I had my Sapphire version that my first bf just happened to keep. (We broke up.)

        I like how it knows Focus Energy. It was useful on my team... I always like Torchic.

          Torchic and Charmander I always choose the fire types because not only do i like them but for me there were never really enough fire types in the game.

            I chose Mudkip in Sapphire and Squirtle in Fire Red. I usually tend to start with water in all of my games.

              Lol... the only game that I got the chance to play for this generation is Emerald, which was my first ever Pokemon game. I remember choosing Torchic because of how cute it looked. xD

                  Mudkip, and it was a right choice since it evolved into bad ass swampert with its electro resitance :D

                    Sapphire/Emerald - Treeko/Torchic. Oddly enough... I was not a fan of Mudkipz.

                    FireRed/LeafGreen - Charmander/Squirtle. Not a fan of Bulbasaur. Never have been. Venusaur is just... so... hard to look at.

                      I've always chosen the fire type without hestiation. Charmander and Torchic were great companions! Blaziken was nudged from Sapphire onto my Soul Silver game, and may get another poke onto my Black data. Speaking of Black, (and discounting Yellow) that was the first time that I chose a starter besides the Fire type!

                        I liked to pick Torchic. I always thought that the fire starters were awesome.

                          On my original play-through I chose Torchic and Charmander in Sapphire and Fire Red respectively. At that time I had a really deep love for fire type Pokemon.

                              In the gsc series, I always chose Cyndaquil since it could learn Thunderpunch and Fire Punch.

                              In the RSE, I often chose Mudkip because of its water and ground combo.

                              In FR and LG, I liked Bulbasaur because it could dominate pretty much every gym.

                              First time I played Ruby, I chose Torchic.
                              Althought I ended up regretting it, wanting to pick Mudkip.

                                I always made my brother restart his sapphire game 6 times, so we both had all the starters :D

                                  Torchic and squirtle

                                  On my second times I chose Treecko and bulbasaur

                                  Seriously, I've never chosen charmander or mudkip

                                  I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

                                    For some reason, its Bulbasaur and Treeko, I chose Bulbasaur because I wanted some kind of challenge in my LG game while for Treeko, I love Sceptile's design so I went with it.

                                        i picked squirtle in leafgreen blastoise when the game came out, because it is my favorite fully evolved starter and my friend who lived two house houses away had the wireless adapter that came with the game and so did I and he had a charizard and we battled sometimes. guess you could say we were the real world pokemon rivals lol.

                                          On the contrary, Charizard is actually the most challenging choice for starter. In the first generation, Charmander was horrible for the first two gyms. At least in FireRed and LeafGreen, Charmander learns Metal Claw just for the Pewter gym and Mount Moon. Still, battling Misty is total heck unless you caught a grass type such as a Paras in Mount Moon or a Oddish or Bellsprout in the field next to Nugget Bridge.

                                          My favorite starters are Torchic and Mudkip, so it is a hard decision when trying to select only one. I tend to choose Torchic for its very awesome Fire/Fighting typing (well, not like that's anything special after Infernape and that pig Emboar). FireRed I like Bulbasaur, though I've played through with Charizard in the past and used to choose Squirtle in the originals.

                                            Hmm, I'd have to go with torchic and Treeko in Hoenn, and in Kanto I usually use Squirtle and Bulbasaur, for son reason their just easier to battle with.

                                              Mudkip.
                                              I admit, it was actually on SoulSilver but it's still my Gen III starter. Hopefully that counts. I'm still trying to get a hold of Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald but I don't have a system to play it on that works yet.
