    I would always pick Totodile because it is a water type Pokemon and I believe that Totodile is the cutest one of the three and has an awesome look once it becomes a Feraligatr. Totodile can learn Ice moves which is a weakness to Chikorita and Cyndaquil is self explanatory.

      Cyndaquil of my first run, but unfortunately my cousin new game'd it. So I picked Totodile on my second run. I never picked Chikorita before!

        To blame was Charizard's amazing legacy for indoctrinating us to believe that fire types would always reign supreme.

        Well, I choose Cyndaquil in both Crystal and Heart Gold. He's 3 stage, Typhlosion is my favourite Johto Pokemon and because I love fire types.

          Totodile because at least then I could feel good about beating my rival since he had Meganium. I like Cyndaquil a lot but Since HG/SS Totodile got better with stuff like Ice Fang and Superpower

          Should Beauty ever be my best feature I would simply die

            I choose Cyndaquil in Crystal Version , because he is the one of the strongest of the few fire pokemon available , and because i always choose fire type.

              I always like to choose Cyndaquil but my sister's nickname is Chikorita and I managed to get a female once so there I go, using a Geodude to take down Falkner 3 hits, and Whitney 3 hits. (BTW, use rock smash, I know it sucks but it works and for Miltank use Selfdestruct xD)

                First game I ever played was Crystal and picked Feraligatr. Now since I don't use starters I choose Cyndaquil so my rival has Totodile, because Feraligatr fits him the most I think.

                  In Silver, I started with Totodile. I've always had a thing for the water starter, and Totodile was no exception. Also, that meant the rival would choose the worst starter in my opinion, Chikorita.

                      Most of the time I pick Cyndaquil, but sometimes Chikorita.

                          Totodile because Feraligatr is my favourite final evolved starter Pokemon. Ever.

                          Best Pokemon ever. Period.

                            I usually always start with Cyndaquil as it's my favorite starter. It's adorable, and even though i don't care for the fire type, I still think Typhlosion is awesome. Back when I first got the game though I started with Chikorita, seeing how in Blue I started with Bulbasaur and thought it was the best choice. I was wrong though... :V It's my least favorite starter in Gen II. :\

                              In G/S I pick Totodile every time and it's always named Crocogator.

                              Crystal's a bit different. I'm willing to get Chikorita since Growlithe and Poliwag give a nice early Grass/Fire/Water core, but sometimes I get Cyndaquil and apply the same principle with a Bellsprout.

                              I started with Totodile in Gold and Crystal and Cyndaquil in Silver. I always go for the water starter in my first game of a generation (at least) (in this case, that was Gold). I think I actually started with Totodile on Silver at first as well, but at that point, I was just using Silver as a storage pack/trading source for Gold and Crystal. Several years after I got Silver (sometime after Gold died in 2006), I finally restarted my Silver game, made a "real" file, and played through the game with the Cyndaquil line.

                              I don't think I've ever started with Chikorita, aside from playing the first 15 minutes of the game or so to trade it to another file.

                              For all generations I'd always choose a fire starter. I've always loved them, cause they pack a whole lot of power and dexterity, and of course their 1st stages are so damn cute <3 The first time I played around with my sister's Silver and accidentally restarted it, then saved, I chose a Totodile, my sis was a huge water type picker, regardless of the generation. I'm the opposite so I always ended up choosing Cyndaquil ( In the Anime he was so cute and adorable <3). Even in Gen 4's HGSS: Cyndaquil always won me over.

                                I usually picked Cyndaquil, but I went with Totodile sometimes. I like fire and water types, so I was happy either way. Once in a while I chose Chikorita, and Chikorita was actually the first Gen 2 starter I ever chose, but Meganium just never ended up being as useful as Typhlosion or Feraligatr (or as awesome looking).

                                    I always pick the water starter. Squirtle got me loving them. And Totodile was a beast. So how was I not going to pick him?! :)

                                      Chikorita's the best with me. I always liked a challenge and grass starter.

                                        In both Gold and Crystal I chose Chikorita. Not really sure why, it sucks for the first two gyms haha.
                                        Still young but no longer impressionable.

                                          When I very first started Gold back in the day I chose Totodile because he was a spunky little gator but I had some difficulties with Red at the time because my team wasn't evenly balanced/and or leveled so I ended up having to train a Fire-type and some others to beat him.

                                          So these days on HeartGold I always pick Cyndaquil because there are a huge abundance of Water and Grass-types.

                                            I chose Cyndaquil everytime.
                                            When he evolved into Typhlosion, he was such a beast. Good type coverage with moveset too.

                                              Although I normally choose the water-type, Hinoarashi is my starter for Silver. He's adorable when he's little and ferocious when he's grown.
