    I know it`s not a choice but I don't really like any of the 6th gen starters so far.

      I don't really like Gen 2 & 3. I just don't like how the starters look like. For example Chikorita. Just nope.

        Based on design, 4th gen is the worst.
        I've always relied on my starters. Not too sure about gameplay-wise.

          I'm ashamed to see Gen. 3 isn't as bad as it should be.

          Don't get me wrong, Treecko is awesome, but Mudkip? Ew. No. Torchic? Pfft. No. Here's Why:

          Mudkip: Turned into an internet meme, and has generated more hype than Charmander in Gen. 1

          Torchic: The first introduction of a fire/fighting type starter, which I only presume lead nintendo into spamming the fire/fighting starter types we know today in Gen. 4 and 5. Highly annoying that they can't just think of something original.

          Gen. 3.. amazing storyline, amazing music. Horrible starters. When the remake comes out, I'm either going with Treecko or just going with a no-starter team.


          So sleepy...

              In my opinion it'd be Gen III. Although I don't dislike them, I just find them, boring... Its probably the worst part about Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald.

              Gen 4, can't say I liked the appearance or typings of Empoleon or Infernape for those evolutionary lines. Turtwig wasn't too great either, we already had turtle starters, it's called Squirtle

                Generation 5 hands down for me. Each generation, other than 5 has one or two really awesome Pokemon, and then 1 that I don't hate, but don't like using. Generation 5 has nothing that I really like

                  In terms of design I'd say gen 3 - the only decent one is torchic. Swampert and Sceptile are just ugly, and I'm all for cutesy.

                  I loved the gen4 designs - torterra was awesome!!

                  Strategywise I'd have To say gen2's starters were the worst, with all evolutions being one type only (does grass/poison really count as two separate types?) :-
