    Chimchar. Because Infernape is fast and powerful with awesome movepoll, and has the best design out of the three imo.

    not gonna lie, I'm starting to like Torterra and Infernape equally so both Turtwig and Chimchar are my favourites. ^_^

        In my first run, I started with Turtwig, but ditched it after the first gym for a Bibarel (don't ask me why, I was young and foolish) . After that, I tried Chimchar and I've never looked back. I like Infernape's design, as well as its good speed, attack and wide coverage.

          I don't understand why they didn't give Empoleon a typing that could defeat the other two starters. I mean Infernape can use Stab fire moves on Torterra and Stab Ground on Empoleon, Torterra can use Stab Ground moves to destroy Empoleon and Infernape. However, Empoleon can only use Stab super effective water on Infernape. It's water moves are neutral against Torterra which I guess is better than being resisted. It cant use it's Stab steel type moves super effectively against the other types. But I guess that's why Ice Beam is always a viable option to nuke Torterra and Cynthia's Garchomp. Also it's weird that Empoleon cant learn a water recoil damage move. I mean Infernape gets Flare Blitz and Woodhammer for Torterra. And Empoleon cant resist fire type moves as they are neutralized by it's steel typing. Water/Steel is a decent typing but there are so may better steel types like Lucario, Magnezone, Steelix, Bronzong. Plus there are so many better water types as it is the most dominant type in the game.

          Anyways, I think Turtwig is my favourite. I love Torterra's move pool and I found it extremely useful during game play. I would never use it in competitive play as it is so slow.

          Infernape is probably the best for playing the game as there are limited fire types obtainable in Sinnoh. Thank you Game Freak for giving us three consecutive Fire/Fighting types in a row. It's a good typing but no need for three in a row.

          Emboar in 5th Gen was actually the third Fire/Fighting starter final stage, Infernape was the second of those three.

            I'm aware of that. Should have worded it better. Also, I think Incineroar looks like it should be a Fire/Fighting type as well.

              Turtwig is very underrated, powerful attack and def with STAB earthquake (shame about no good physical grass STAB till gen 7 with seed bomb, wood hammer was alright but recoil hurts)

              in fact in pokemon reborn (fan game, notoriously hard, pick any starter from gen 1-6 probably 7 in future updates) i picked turtwig and would never have got to the end of the current update without it

                Chimchar is my favourite starter, but Torterra is my favourite final evolution.

                  Infernape is really too similar to Blaziken for me to love it.
                  I think Pipulp's final evolution looks cool, but its natural moveset is atrocious.
                  Turtwig has solid moves and a great evolution so it ends up being my favorite just due to utility and decent typing.

                  Piplup no doubt, easily the best design out of the three

                    Piplup so far.

                    I do like the three starters but I use more often Piplup beause he a water type ( which I do like a lot) and penguin are always cute so it a plus!

                      Infernape is the best for competitive play but I like using piplup in-game because empoleon's water/steel type is pretty decent!

                      My least favorite batch of starters, if I'm being honest. However, there is one shining star among them and that's Empoleon. It's just so cool looking and the typing was new and interesting at the time. So I guess, that being said, my vote is going to Piplup!

                          Turtwig would have to be my favorite starter just because the final evolution reminds me of something out of the Super Mario series. I really like the Mario games.
