    I always choose the fire or leaf types because the fire is good at the start since you usually start out by a forest, and the leaf types because they learn good moves for making it easier to capture guys, poison powder, sleep powder etc.

        In my first third generation file, which happens to be my Ruby version, I chose Torchic. I don't quite know for what reason I selected Torchic, perhaps because it looked more adorable than the other starters.

          On my first playthrough of Ruby, I chose Torchic and even now it's still my favourite of the bunch (and Blaziken is one of my all-time favourites). I'm not sure if I ever trained a Treecko despite my numerous re-plays of the games O_o
          Always just Torchic or Mudkip or non-starters.

              and were mine. I remember when you had to battle Gary before you got to Victory Road and I always kept using Frenzy Plant on his Charizard. That battle took forever.

                So...I herd you liek mudkipz


                When I first got Sapphire, I chose mudkip.
                In another Sapphire file, I chose Treeko, but I ended up restarting for some reason.
                I chose Torchic when i got Ruby.

                I chose Blastoise in Frlg (both versions.)
                I eventually ended up choosing Charmander and Bulbasaur in different FireRed files.

                        I can't remember Ruby and Sapphire but I know I picked Treeko the first time I played through Emerald. In Fire Red I got Squirtle and Leaf Green I picked Charmander.

                              For the Hoenn games I used Torchic... I love Blaziken, first fighting type I ever used really.
                              For the Kanto games, Charmander all the way, gotta hardmode Brock and Misty.

                              torchick, because i have mentioned before, and maybe in this thread too, the fire startes is usually the best !!

                                  I chose Torchic in Ruby and Emerald and I chose Bulbasaur in LeafGreen. Most of the time I choose the Water types but I liked Blaziken more than any of the others and I don't know why I chose Bulbasaur...still to this day...

                                  I picked Mudkip in Hoenn because I leik mudkipz and Charmander in Kanto. I used to like Water-type starters as well, but I just pick the ones I like the most now.

                                    My first time in Hoenn was Ruby and I chose Mudkip, but brainlessly. I had not realized I was choosing my starter because it was so different, I just hit the first one that came up.

                                    My first of the kanto remakes was leaf green and I started with Charmander.

                                    I'm just going to post them all because I can:

                                    Gold version ages ago: All of them at different resets. My first ever was Cyndaquil iirc.
                                    Heart Gold: Chikorita. Jealous of my brothers shiny Chikorita though >.>
                                    Sapphire: Torchic of course, best starter of gen 3.
                                    Emerald: Went for a change and picked Mudkip, although Torchic still rocks.
                                    Diamond: Piplup, because it owned the other starters and Empoleon has a sick typing.
                                    Platinum: Piplup again because I am boring.
                                    Fire Red: Bulbasaur because it is smexy.
                                    White: Snivy because Serperior is the best starter under.

                                    Treecko's the one that I picked. Fabulously green, he was great. As for FRLG I chose Squirtle, that way I can put the laughter in slaughtering Brock for once have an easier time thanks to it's defense. Plus Blastoise is awesome.
