I chose Charmander, even though I knew I would have struggled against Misty and that's where Pikachu came into play. ;)

    When I was younger I always chose Charmander without hesitation, but these days when I play a Kanto game I tend to go for Bulbasaur. I love all three equally but Bulbasaur is kinda the underdog in terms of popularity which is why I usually go for it. Plus Bulbasuar CRUSHES Brock and Misty.

        I pick Bulbasaur. Very handy against the first three gyms leaders.

          I picked Charmander in FireRed and Bulbasaur in LeafGreen.

            I chose Charmander. Because it's best for starter. Fire is strong against Grass and Water

                At least Grass type. In starting Fire is great.

                  I chose Squirtle.

                  It can learn Bite through levelling up, which is handy against a lot of Psychic Types that will be fought throughout Kanto.

                  While my main Water Type later on would be Omastar due to Swift Swim outspeeding many of Lance's Dragons with a great Sp. Atk stat to boot, Blastoise would still be a reliable backup mon because of its bulk.

                    This awesome blue turtle! I've always been team Squirtle; good type, good stats, good moves, and it does have a great design.

                    I do like Charmander and Bulbasaur though; Kanto has a solid set of starters (even though, despite liking it alright, I find Charizard to be overrated)

                      Having an advantage over Caterpie and Metapod are hardly something to talk about. Fire itself is useless in Kanto, there's only 1 gym that is weak to fire and exactly 2 Pokemon during the E4 that also have a weakness to fire.

                        I always Choose Charmander even if the first two gyms are strong against Charmander.

                          Certainly the best option always was Charmander in this games, and my first choice in FR 9-10 but in fact the three are pretty good. For example, Bulbasaur (the worst starter among the others) is a really great Pokémon for the first 3-4 gyms so... It's a taste matter.

                          Btw, I really love Charizard so it's always the first priority to me.

                            Worst starter? how?

                            1- SE against Brock, Misty, Giovani, Loreli and Bruno.
                            2- Resists Surge, Erika and the fighting gym.
                            3- High offense and defense stats while Charizard has high attack but low defense stats and Blastoise has high defense but low attack stats plus it's the slowest, making Venusaur the most balanced one.
                            4- competitively speaking, Venusaur is way ahead of Charizard and Blastoise.

                            just look at how it's fair in meta

                                Ok I get it, but there's a difference between "worst" and "least favorite". Thought you were going by the former.

                                  The 'least favorite' of almost everyone is Bulbasaur because it SEEMS to be the most weak. But Charizard (my favorite) for example, is a very weak Pokémon. It only takes a Rock type attack like Rock Slide to defeat it, so, as I said in my first post, it's a taste matter.

                                  Btw, Squirtle also is very interesting.

                                    Err no? There are a lot of Bulbasaur fans out there. And it's generally the least popular because of aesthetics reasons. Bulbasaur in Gen1 was broken with 2 broken moves and had the highest special stats. Even most people who don't pick Bulbasaur admit that's it does better than the other two but they prefer the dragon and the turtle tank.

                                    Squirtle is arguably the worst Kanto starter. Mediocre stats, 1 stab typing, bad in competitive and there are many better water alternatives in Kanto.

Bulbasaur in Gen1 was broken with 2 broken moves and had the highest special stats. Even most people who don't pick Bulbasaur admit that's it does better than the other two but they prefer the dragon and the turtle tank.

                                      Squirtle is arguably the worst Kanto starter. Mediocre stats, 1 stab typing, bad in competitive and there are many better water alternatives in Kanto.
                                      I think you've been a little sensitive about a personal taste. I didn't say that Bulbasaur is ugly or the worst starter ever. I just say that is the 'least favorite' because almost everyone prefer Squirte and Charmander, even if they are not useful in the first gyms.

                                      If you're a fan of Bulbasaur (because you are) it's perfect.

                                        No, I was just arguing against your "worst starter" but then realized you are talking subjectively and what others think.

                                          Putting all analysis aside, I started with Bulbasaur on my first playthrough because I played Leaf Green and thought it was the most fitting. It also looked the friendliest to me and I never regretted it.

                                            I have Played firered ones, so obviously my first starter was my last starter which is charmender

                                            No i didn't creatcreated any other file to try the other starter pokemon.

                                            I think kanto starters r somehow powerfull than the other gen. Gen 5 starters were a bit weak while kanto starters are increasingly powerfull.
