      This thread can go into tiering all the starters from the spinoffs, too, right? Because in that case, I want to include PMD starters, too.

      S-tier: Treecko, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Oshawott, Chimchar, Eevee. Vulpix.

      A-tier: Rowlet, Mudkip, Charmander, Pikachu, Espeon, Umbreon, Turtwig.

      B-tier: Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Torchic, Popplio, Litten, Fennekin, Froakie, Skitty, Snivy, Machop, Cubone, Phanphy, Sninx.


      C-tier: Chespin, Tepig, Meowth, Munchlax.

      D-tier: Piplup, Riolu, Axew.

      Only going to go with the starters from the main series games since I wasn't much into the spinoffs, and my opinions of them might be slightly different as starters rather than just another regular Pokemon. I've also added a plus for those that are in-between tiers for me- they're slightly higher than those in that tier, but just not enough for the next one up.

      Eevee (+)
      Mudkip
      Snivy

        I will only be ranking them according to the main series as I feel that spin offs depart from the main series too much to be reasonably comparable.

        S tier:
        Turtwig,
        Froakie,
        Rowlet.

        A tier:
        Charmander,
        Totodile,
        Piplup,
        Chimchar,
        Bulbasaur.

        B tier:
        Snivy,
        Treeko,
        Totodile,
        Cyndaquill,
        Chikorita
        Popplio,
        Oshawott.

        C tier:
        Chespin,
        Squirtle,
        Chespin,
        Fennekin,
        Torchic,
        Tepig,
        Mudkip,
        Pikachu

        D tier:
        Litten.

          Note that, in the cases of Pikachu, Eevee, Espeon, and Umbreon, their placements are based on how I feel about them as starters, not just as Pokémon in general.

          S-Tier
          • Cyndaquil
          • Snivy
          • Popplio
          • Honōguma
          A-Tier
          • Chikorita
          • Totodile
          • Treecko
          • Torchic
          • Oshawott
          • Fennekin
          • Kurusu
          B-Tier
          • Bulbasaur
          • Charmander
          • Squirtle
          • Eevee
          • Mudkip
          • Tepig
          • Chespin
          • Froakie
          • Rowlet
          C-Tier
          • Espeon
          • Umbreon
          • Litten
          D-Tier
          • Pikachu, because it's already available super early in Kanto so having it as a starter feels like a waste.
          • Turtwig
          • Chimchar
          • Piplup
