    I love Totodile.

    Also, what do you mean by 'other'?

        Over the various games I chose all three Sinnoh starters, but my first was Turtwig.

        I chose Cyndaquil in Heart Gold.

        I don't really choose them in preference of type - I like picking different starters each time I replay so I can build different teams around them.

          In Pearl, I chose Turtwig. Later bred it, and now use a lv. 100 shiny Torterra.
          In SS, which I play most now, I chose Totodile. Used it until it was lv. 46, then locked it away in a box.

            I chose Chimchar first in Diamond and got Piplup in Platinum. Never owned Pearl.

            When HeartGold and SoulSilver came around, I picked Chikorita for the former and Cyndaquil for the latter.

              I'm playing through HeartGold and I chose Chikorita as my starter, who evolved into Bayleef within two days of playing the game.

              Chimchar because he looks cute and i absolutely love Infernape's design. Plus i love the Fire/Fighting combo and i didn't mind them using itr twice (Yes, Tepig was too much...).
              Totodile because he is such a hilarious and hyper-active pokemon, plus i love how he is inspired by a crocodile/alligator.

                I thought I had answered this before...

                Pearl: Turtwig
                Platinum: Chimchar
                Heartgold: Chikorita
                Soulsilver: Totodile

                  in my first ever game which was pearl i chose turtwig because my other two friends chose piplup and chimchar and i wanted to be different than them and also turtwig was adorable. also torterra is one of my favorite pokemon. i chose piplup in platinum because i wanted to try something different. in heartgold i chose chikorita because it was very cute and again i wanted to be different. also i already chose cyndaquil in crystal :D

                    What it means by 'other' is sometimes people ditch the region's starters altogether and pick their favourite/different pokemon to start the game with.

                      Sinnoh: Chimchar definetely. I must have a fire type pokémon in my team.
                      Jotho: Totodile. Cause I always catch a Growlithe .
                      That kinda happens always when I play gen II games.

                      Although my best gen II game (crystal) was with Cyndaquil as starter.

                          Cyndaquill in HG/SS and Turtwig in Platinum But next time I play Platinum I'll choose chimchar. Torterra wasn't bad, but I wanna to make a full IV Gen team and it lacks fire-types pokémon :s

                            I chose Chimchar in Diamond (my friend told me to, I was young and didn't understand much about Pokemon, and I thought Chimchar was adorable :3), and then in Platinum I went with Turtwig (back then I followed along with Marilland - I basically made my team EXACTLY like his :/)..then I tried SoulSilver and used Totodile. After that, I replayed Platinum and used Piplup.

                            Diamond/Pearl/Platinum
                            Always Piplup. He makes the game much easier for later Gyms.

                            HeartGold/SoulSilver
                            Always Cyndaquil. He makes Steel Pokémon look like chumps. Especially late game.

                              HG/SS - Tododile... Strong and Deadly Crocodile/Aligator/Cayman or something like that XD

                                OMG who wouldn't like a monkey as a friend? a monkey who plays with fire too!
                                Meganium is my most favourite pokemon, naturally I'll choose it.

                                  Haha, yeh I'm definitely going with either Piplup or (preferably) Totodile to suit a mono-Water themed team. :3 Water-type starters appeal to me a whole more than the others purely because each one so far is distinct and interesting! (though not saying that the other starters are diverse):)

                                    Piplup and Chikorita are my favorites from Gen 4.

                                      For Pearl, the first starter I chose was Chimchar because I like fire types.

                                      For SoulSilver, I picked Chikarita because I had never used it in my original Gold or Silver. When I got HeartGold, I chose Totodile because I choose it in my original Silver but I never beat it because it broke D;

                                        I picked Chimchar on my first try of Diamond.

                                        And I picked Cyndaquil in Heartgold.

                                        I am fond of fire types. :3

                                        On my replaythroughs of the game I decided to try different starters, ones that I don't normally consider. I've overdone water to be honest so I decided to take a break and give the other types a little love. In Platinum I decided to go with Turtwig, mainly because there were other great fire-types I wanted to catch later on in the game such as Houndoom.

                                        In Soulsilver, I had already chosen Totodile in Heartgold and I decided to give Cyndaquil a go since it's design was adorable and apparently it was a ferocious and powerful attacker in it's final evolutions.

                                          I've always been a fire person, so of course I chose Chimchar in Pearl and Cyndaquil in SS.
