The original starters - Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander. Which of these Pokémon did you feel most inclined to pick? Why did you end up choosing one starter over the other Pokémon?

    Well I honestly like them all. But Charmander was one of the first Pokemon I knew about and I loved it from the start.

      I choose Squirtle because of the rock gym was so hard with Bulbasaur and Charmander.

          I was talking about Pokemon Red and Blue where in Pewter City you have to fight Brock.

          Onyx vs Bulbasaur was a terrible fight.

              That... doesn't make a lot of sense.. Since Razor Leaf has more power than bubble... But fair enough if that was your experience!

              I was always drawn to Charmander! Lucky there was a nice place to the side of Viridian to catch a handy Mankey to Lowkick Brocks heavy Rock Type Pokemon!

              I feel like Charmander was always a risky investment as a starter; Rock with Brock and Water with Misty just led for a bad time!

                Always Charmander, mostly because Charizard was awesome! My team mostly consisted of just Charizard, HM slaves and Snorlax so that I could switch Charizard out to heal it XD

                  I think i'll choose Bulbasaur. I have a Venusaur in my Pokemon Blue game, and he's lit. I nicknamed him Chase. :)

                  I also used to have a Bulbasaur beanie baby plushie thing so nostalgia.

                      Charmander because Charizard was so hype in the anime.

                        Lets start with Charmander. It haves the best attack and speed stats.
                        Bulbasaur haves the most HP and haves the most balanced stats and a good defense.
                        Squirtle haves the best defense stats but the lower HP.

                        In the early game, Bulbasaur seems to be the most helpful starter, and Charmander the worst choice.

                        After gym number 3, the best pokémon will be Charmander that evolved into a Charmeleon, and the worst will be Ivysaur (evolved Bulbasaur).

                        At the end (last 2 gyms and Elite 4) Blastoise is the best and will do better than others.

                        So, for me, I think the best starter is Squirtle

                        Hope it helped,

                          Charmander was my first ever Pokémon.
                          I recently started Blue again and he was my choice this time round....again.


                          I do however trade over Bulbasaur and Squirtle later on.

                            Without any prior knowledge to types, evolutions, and all that I started off with Squirtle. It looked cute with those little eyes and that tail. To put things into perspective I bought the game after some kids on the playground were playing and I watched them in Viridian forest. I had no idea what pokemon even was. My first question: "So is Pikachu like the leader of all the pokemon?" To which kids started to laugh. I saw the image of pikachu pretty much everywhere and assumed he was their "leader" or something lol. I had no idea pokemon had trainers or fought each other, or anything. I was so clueless! XD

                            But Squirtle called to me and his head looked like a little round ball so I gave him the name BB after the BBs from a pellet gun
