    I'd pick Bulbasaur, Back in the Gen 1 days Grass types were OP! Even my first play through I picked Bulbasuar, not sure why but I did. But since Gen 1 the grass starter has never been really that viable unless its Sapphire and you pick Treecko. Big up the ugly flower toad!

        Pikachu and not because I own Yellow version but because it's super effective against Pidgey and Spearow(two flying types you face early on) and learns Thunder Wave really early, an excellent status move that makes catching that much easier early on. Plus Yellow version naturally learns Thunderbolt and is the perfect option for Misty(Mankey or Nidoran can handle Brock).

          Bulbasaur, hands down.
          The reason you ask? Well first, no one chose it (poor thing). Second, Bulbasaur is the best starter you could have. He was cute, Ivysaur was cool and Venusaur was badass. It also was good in battling (type-wise). My brother chose Squirtle for his leaf-green and still hasnt finished the game, while I beat it my FireRed and also completed the post-game. I chose a Charmander in one of thos Pokemon RPG simulators (Pokemon World Online, if anyone wanted to know) and it took a lot longer to beat Kanto then it did in my FireRed even though it was the same basic stuff. So if I want to choose a starter, Bulbasaur it is

            To be honest, I would go for Charmander because even though that Charmander has problems at the first and second gym due to its typing. But Charmander has a lot of potential than the other three, Pikachu, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle like its moveset and can evolve into a really strong Charizard.

              The first Pokémon I ever chose was Charamander in Red Version, so if I'm playing RED the choice would be the same every time. When I play Blue I flip a coin between Squirtle and Bulbasuar (though I prefer Bulbasuar).

              All that said, CHARIZARD FOR LIFE!!! lol

                Definitely Charmander, for having the highest damage out of the starters.
