Oshawott for me. For some reason, I always felt as though the developers were sort of nudging the player to choose the water starter. Heck even the anime has Ash getting an Oshawott.

Tepig or Oshawott, most likely Oshawott, because I don't see the rival picking Oshawott- he seems more like a Snivy type of guy. I always try to go with what seems more fitting to the rival(s).

Also, my friends seem to have this thing where they all pick the Grass or Fire starter, and as a result it takes us forever to get the Water one later on ._. So yeah, most likely Oshawott.

Oshawott... I don't like any of them, but I have to choose, and anyway I prefer water-type.

I wish we could get new starters, but oh well. I think Oshawott is the cutest, so I'll pick that one.

Aww man, this is a really tough choice... I adore Oshawott for its cuteness and childishness, I adore Tepig for its peppiness and attitude of never giving up, and I adore Snivy for its calm/cool nature, so this is a really tough one! I've used Oshawott and Tepig most recently in Black, so I guess I'm gonna go with Snivy for my B2W2 starter; but that really is only based on when I last used them. Choosing my last starter for BW was like torture, they're all so amazing in Gen V ;;

I am saving up to have 2 copies of Black 2 and a copy of White 2 for I can get all three starters. At first I didn't like the starters for the exception of Snivy, but now I like all three (I use to think Oshawatt was ugly as sin and then it grew on me plus help with the anime and now I find it adorable). Snivy will my choice on one of the Black 2 games and which one I choose for Tepig and Oshawatt depends if Reshiram would be on White 2 or Black 2. If he is on B2, Tepig would be on White, if Reshiram is on W2, Tepig would be on Black. I don't want my Fire starter to be choice of the game that you get the Fire Dragon.

In White I went with Tepig, and I'll probably do the same this time too. I love his design and fire type starters usually appeal to me more. :)

I'll probably start off with Oshawott, as I did the first time I played through White. Then immediately box it once I pick up another Pokemon I want to use. I've used all three before, and I can't say I was a big fan of any of them. Plus, with the greater variety of Pokemon available in the wild, I'll want to try out something else instead.

With White I chose my favourite, Oshawott (still my favourite). With Black I chose my next favourite (Snivy). With Black or White 2 (whaterver version I get) I'll choose Tepig, my least favourite of the three.

I'll get Snivy in B2, and Oshawott probably in W2, a flip of what I picked in B/W. :)

In White, I picked Tepig and was more than pleased with how Emboar turned out. My friends all picked Oshawott and were pleased with him. Since I started White again, I've found out that I really, really don't like Snivy that much. So I'll probably pick either Tepig or Oshawott. I kinda want to get an Arcanine, and there's no sense in having two Fire types, but I also want Lapras, and there's no point in two water types, either. I'll leave it to a coin toss or something xD

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

I didn't like any of the Unova starters. In Black version I chose Oshawott and then subsequently discarded it, without hesitation, as soon as I could get my hands on anything from before Generation V. I guess I'll choose Tepig when I purchase either B2 or W2 (haven't decided yet), as I really dislike Grass Pokemon and it would be boring to go for Oshawott again, especially knowing how much of a disappointment Samurott becomes.

I don't like any of the Unova starters, so I'll be going with Snivy for no particular reason. I'll dump him for another starter I like more - perhaps Treecko - as soon as possible.

I chose Oshawott in White, right now I'm very tempted to choose Snivy for BW2. I've trained all three starters in White, and I find both Snivy and Oshawott easy to train. Even though I'd like to have a grass-type starter this time, Oshawott will still remain as my favorite starter in Unova.

Snivy, it's kind of my favourite Pokemon, but I think I would teach it more TM/tutor moves, after what happened to my Black Serperior (it only had Grass moves, Cut and Flash, so it wasn't really good).

I picked Snivy in my playthrough of Black, and that's been the only playthrough so far. Really, the choice for me is going to be between Tepig and Oshawott. I'll probably go with Osha because I'll hopefully be able to get a Growlithe. :3

Choosing Oshawott in my first game, because I chose Snivy in Black, and Tepig in White.
I dislike the starters, unfortunately :-(

BW2 messed up my starter choice. I said originally I was going to have Oshawott first, then Tepig, then Snivy. So I used Oshawott for Black, Tepig for White, and planned to use Snivy for Gr a/e y.. but seeming it's a sequel I don't know I'm thinking Oshawott for White 2, and Snivy for Black 2..because Oshawott is my favourite!
