    I have nothing against Flamethrower or Skull Bash, (perfectly decent attacks, respect Blastoise/Charizard, eternally.) but Venusaur takes the cake. He's my favourite, and happens to be the first pokemon I used, ever, when I got Red when I was 10 years old. I vote Pikachu because I love Yellow more than the other two, but Venusaur would always beat Pikachu in a fight. Always, just max your stats and find out.
    While traveling from Johto to Kanto, you'll end up at a certain building in Viridian City. When you go against the trainer there, that's not just Feraligator biting you, that's life.

    Note: Seriously, the dude always has all three starters. How cool is that?

        Charmander is my favourite, followed closely by Pikachu. I only had Yellow, Charizard and Pikachu were my MVP in my team.

          although bulbasaur was my first pokemon ever, i must say that i think blastoise is the coolest final evolution. dont get me wrong, charizard is cool too, but something about those canons on the back is just awesome

            Charmander is my favourite- as overrated as it is and as tired as I am of seeing it thanks to its popularity, Charizard is still amazing.

            Ironically I haven't used it as part of a team in a good long while, though... while I've used Squirtle several times recently and Pikachu on one of my latest runs.
            Current mono-type: TFL, Round 4

            Regions cleared: Johto | Hoenn | Sinnoh | Unova | (More? Let's finish these first~)

            I still don't care if it's considered overrated and all, Charmander will always be my favorite. I love all of Gen. 1's starters though.

              I love Squirtle and prefer it to Charmander, but not as much in-game. I loved using Charizard's Fissure because its Speed made it pretty accurate (For Fissure to work at 30% accuracy, your pokemon has to outspeed the other).
              Go play Pokemon Theta Emerald EX!
