          On FR, tried Charmander a couple of times, didn't work. Squirtle did the trick. On Ruby, Torchic all the way.

              In Ruby, Treecko. His line is kinda suave en stylish. In FR/LG I ALWAYS pick charmander. Just because charizard is an awesome dragon fire-spitting WAAARGH thingy.

                First time playing Ruby; I chose Mudkip; because when I first played Pokemon I was a big water-type pokemon fan; and my starter was always a water-type.
                And yeah, I like Mudkipz!

                Needless to say that my first pokemon in FRLG was Squirtle.

                    My very first times I chose Chamander and Mudkip :3
                    They were both the cutest, in my opinion. Plus Charizard is awesome. I didn't know any of the 3rd Gen pokemon yet when I picked Mudkip, so I just hoped it'd be even cooler when it evolved. It was x]

                      Torchic and Charmander, just because i'm a sucker for fire types. and the severe lack of them in Ruby/Sapphire made me choose Torchic almost every time.

                        Squirtle and Mudkip. Been a fan of water types before I was a fan of ice types :3

                          I have chosen every single GBA starters so i must pick favorites. Its as simple as mudkip and charmander.

                          Swampert, I still use him (although hes lost his touch in the new Gen)

                          Charizard, Was in my most recent finishing of pokemon LG.

                          Spoiler:
                          Im actually doin a playthrough of LG at the moment where I chose Squrtle, and Il be posting a video of my e4 battle, but for know all i have on youtube is the beginning of some non commentated emerald walktrough, gees i wish i knew how to voice record


                          Put it in a spoiler cus i was gettin off topic a bit. but read if u like

                          I didn't actually like any of the Gen III starters so I chose Torchic (because it is kinda cute) and then used pretty much anything else for Sapphire. For Leaf Green it was Bulbasaur, it's strong and cute and cool! :D

                            Torchic, I have a weakness for choosing the cutest (in their unevolved forms) starters and not thinking about type advantages.

                              S/E: Torchic. It has the cutest basic form. I like it's 3rd evolution, Blaziken. Love it's names. My Blaziken is a male, so he is the most useful in my S/E team.
                              FR/LG: Bulbasaur! He's my first ever, but If Pokemon were true, my first Pokemon could be an Shinx. It is now a Venusaur and he's loyal to me.

                              RSE: Treecko because I usually choose grass starters.

                              FRLG: It's been a while since I played that but I'm pretty sure my first starter was Bulbasaur.

                                I used charmander and torchic.

                                    In the end, I got around to trying out all of them...but my preferences are...

                                    Charmander or Bulbasaur for FRLG.
                                    Torchic for RSE.

                                      Sapphire - Mudkipz

                                      Ruby - Torchic

                                      Emerald - Torchic yet again

                                      FireRed - Charmander

                                      I seem to have an obsession over Fire types. XD

                                        Charmander. I can't help it Charizard's gotta be my favorite Pokemon ever.

                                        And Torchic... because I really didn't like what the other starters involved into. :3

                                            Main versions:
                                            FireRed- Charmander, traded commons for the other two
                                            Emerald- the one for a faster play time, Mudkip

                                            Other versions owned are played by selecting the starter that my play style can get through the game in fast play time. Squirtle in LeafGreen, but any works well enough in Hoenn.
