Since playing first time round I'm always swapping whenever I replay them but my main favourites still remain at Squirtle & Torchic.

        Bulbasaur was the first choice, since I love grass Pokemon. This was in LG. In FR, I obviously chose Charmander; well, because I wanted to try something different.

        Oh goodness, well, I know I got LeafGreen and chose Bulbasaur (since I chose Charmander the first time in Red/Blue, I wanted to switch it up). I can't remember if I chose Torchic or Mudkip in my Sapphire version. I know I didn't get it until a while after it came out, and because of that I know I was impressionable because I didn't get it until after the anime started airing. I think, since I liked Torchic in the anime, I chose Torchic for my first run-through. Then I chose Mudkip because I liked it better in my second and all consecutive playthroughs.

        I chose Charmander in FireRed and Torchic in Emerald because I really like Fire-type Pokémon and they're over powered from early game to late game. They have advantages in gyms compared to Grass- and Water-type Pokémon so completing game is little faster. Before Torchic I chose Treeco and Mudkip in previous saves but then realized how good Blaziken can be with it's burning attacks.

            I choose Squirtle and Treecko, though Mudkips not bad either.

                Charmander and Torchic! Fire and dragon types are my favorite and since there is no dragon starter I chose the fire type. I love fire types!

                    Mudkip on Sapphire, Torchic on Ruby, Treecko on Emerald, Charmander/Bulbasaur on Fire Red, and Squirtle on Leaf Green lol.

                    I flip flop between Mudkip and Torchic, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. I like more of the bulkier Pokemon than anything. I like Charmander and Treecko, I'd just rather the other four.

                    In all my Hoenn games (my Ruby and my brother's Sapphire and Emerald) I chose Mudkip cos it's the easiest to use throughout the game plus I love Water-types.

                          I chose water type starters in all of my games. They have a great endurance while maintaining a good offense.

                            Mudkip and Squirtle were awesome. In my other playthroughs I chose Charmander in LG.

                              For LG my choice was Bulbasaur. I only ever got round to playing through that game once but my Bulby was with me the whole time! Such a reliable Pokemon, especially based on the Kanto gyms :3 In Hoenn my first ever starter was Torchic whom was adorable and then evolved and became kinda gross so I was very disappointed. In my latest run through I used Treecko which has surpassed all expectations and looks amazing in all stages! Grass types ftw o/

                                  I always choose fire, except in Gen II where I sometimes choose water.

                                    The best starters for me are:
                                    FireRed-Leaf Green=Squirtle,Bulbasaur
                                    Crystal-Gold-Silver=Cyndiquil
                                    Ruby-Saphirre=Torchic

                                    In some of them i cant even chose which is better so i put two :D

                                    I agree with Sirius who doesnt like Blaziken

                                      I played through with all 3 but the first one I chose was Torchick and to this day Blaziken is till one of my all time favorite pokemon because of that. I mean, it's a giant, fire breathing, kick-boxing chicken. What's not to love?
