    I've played Pokémon Pearl three times now, and always had Piplup for my starter. I never found picking my first pokémon difficult, because it's always water. x3

        Piplup for D/P/Pt, because I like more of a challenge in my games when choosing a starter.
        Chikorita for HG/SS, same reason why, and I like peaceful, calm, grass types.

        The first time, I believe I chose Piplup, making him my very first Pokemon. For SS (which I got as a Christmas gift last year) my sister's fiance helped me find the evolutions of the starters and eventually led me to choose Cyndaquil.

        I remember soft-resetting for hours to find a shiny starter on HG. Took me about half of an hour to get a shiny Chikorita. After, I spent 3ish hours soft-resetting some more and couldn't find a thing.

          I played Pokemon Raptor EX (an rmxp game) before playing Platinum. I had chosen Piplup there. Having a part steel type is usually good. So many resistances. I also like its evolutionary line. Prinplup not so much. A penguin shouldn't have an owl face LOL. Empoleon is just awesome. It's name is like music to ear :D It looks cool. The trident in his face gives him a fierce look. Not a big fan of the tie around his neck but emporer penguins are joked about wearing tuxedos, so I guess it's fine

          So, in Platinum I chose Chimchar because I like fire types and I get bored quick. His second type is nice too. No Piplup second time.

            Totodile, it was my first ever starter. I can honestly say that I believe that hardest decision you will ever make in life is which starter you will choose when playing your first ever pokémon game.

              I love fire types and Cyndaquil is my favorite
              Thypholsion is very cool design wise and super strong and good defense

              Chimchar is good too. Esepcially when evolves into Monferno, because it's type changes to fire and fight which is useful

              I took Cyndaquil in Heart Gold, since when I first got Gold, I took Cyndaquil too.

              When I got Diamond, I chose Piplup. Pretty slow, but very sturdy and resistant to a lot of attacks

                    Diamond/Platinum - Piplup
                    SoulSilver - Totodile

                    Always a water trainer at heart.

                      I've always loved Fire Starters. In Platinum is chose a Chimchar and in Soulsilver I chose Typhlosion :D

                          The two water's because i always like to have an advantage against the Rock leader and not have to wait for my fire starter to be able to overpower the rocks. Since i started on Sapphire i've really been mostly water. Cept for Bulbasaur and Squirtle being very hard to change and decide...in LeafGreen and FireRed.

                            I always took the fire starter in every generation except in B/W. Which was when I chose Snivy. Cyndaquil is my all-time favorite starter.

                              Totodile and Chimchar, sometimes Turtwig. They've all got some pretty nice movepools that I don't need to work too hard to maximize the potential of.

                              To this point I've used all six of these starters but upon my first choice it was:

                              Diamond - Piplup
                              Soul Silver - Totodile

                                I ditched my DPPt starter.
                                I used both Cyndaquil and Totodile in SS, I picked Cyndaquil on the poll because I prefer it to Totodile these days.

                                  I love using the Fire and Grass starters~! Water? Ummm...not so much since I usually can get good water type pokemon anyway. Didn't pick water starter until B&W.

                                    Cyndaquil all the way! Chikorita is a close second when you want to do a harder playthrough (grass types generally don't have many strengths), and Totodile can easily be replaced by stronger water types later in the game (Gyarados, Suicune, etc.).

                                      I used Piplup the first time I played Platinum and Turtwig the second. I always used Totodile in Silver, so I decided to try something new in HeartGold and chose Cyndaquil(I regret that).

                                        In the original Gold version I chose Chikarita, wanted to try something different so I went with Cyndaquil on Heart Gold.

                                          In all my Dp/pt playtroughs I've chosen Turtwig, because he's pretty cool and I love his final evolution. In HG/SS, I've picked Cyndaquil because I really like him (Especially because of Gold in the manga), and when I first played pokémon Gold I also had a Cyndaquil.
