    At this point I'm not exactly sure. I've used all three of them at least once and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Emboar was simply a blast to use, though I felt his moveset wasn't very expansive. Serperior has a lot of potential when it comes to strategy, though I never looked into it that much so at this point I'm leaning more towards using Snivy. And then there's Samurott, who — you guessed it — is my favourite. Dat moveset, 'nuff said.

    Prior to the North American release of Black and White I was contemplating using either of the starters up until the very moment in which I chose Tepig. Even though I've used all of them I'll most likely end up doing the same in Black and White 2.

      Well, I used Snivy last time and I typically go in order, but this time I think I'm going to pass on doing that and pick Oshawott.

        Hmmm....I chose Oshawott in White but after I got to the PokeTransfer Lab I used my more powerful Pokemon from HG instead. So I'll probably go with Tepig as I've heard good things from him.

          Mijumaru, due to the fact it can learn ice beam and Aerial Ace, as well as having a through-the-roof attack stat, which makes it my favorite to use against people and their Superior Snivy

            Oshawott only because I chose Snivy and Tepig before and never used Oshawott before.

            I picked Snivy & Oshawott for BW, so this time around I'm picking Tepig. If I play both of the games I'll probably go with Oshawott again, I kind of just put him in a box so it would be nice to use him all the way through.

              I haven't used a Grass critter since Bulbasaur back in Blue version... but I really dislike the other two starters for Unova. I used Oshawott in Black version and any love I had for it slowly diminished as it became more and more crap. And Tepig has never interested me: Fire/Fighting, yawn! So... Snivy it will probably be! But I'll probably get rid of it as soon as something better comes along, to be honest.

                I like all the starters, but I'm choosing Oshawott.

                  I think I will choose Tepig because I have never used it in BW. I have a habit of ditching my starter, so I won't use it long. Likely I will put it in the box before the second gym.

                    Tipically I choose the Water tipe Starter but in Pokémon Black I chose Snivy. I think that I will follow the tradition and I will choose Oshawott.

                      I went with Oshawott in Black, and I love him, but I may try something else this time around. Although there aren't that many Water-types I like in Unova... hmm.

                      If I do choose something else I'll most likely choose Snivy, though. Really not a fan of Tepig and its evolutions.
                      Still young but no longer impressionable.

                        I will probably use Snivy for my 1st run through since I like his look the best out of the 3 even though they all arent that appealing once they reach their final evolution, was hoping for new set of starters but figured that wouldnt happen.

                          Although I've had less than great experiences with Grass type Pokemon, I think I'll be choosing Snivy this time around. I chose Oshawott in White and I don't really like yeah, Snivy it is!

                          I used all three in different runs on B&W and Tepig, and Snivy; I'm not really a big fan of, but they did grow on me. However, I'll probably end up using Oshawott, since it's my favorite starter of all three.

                            I'll pick Snivy again...
                            I love it cutely acts proud... However, it was somewhat difficult to pass the first gyms.

                              Oshawott is the only starter I've played in this generation and that won't change in Black 2, merely because I love Samurott, but I don't find Osha cute at all >.<

                                    At first, my plan was to get another Oshawott and make it a Special Attacker which is opposite of my current Samurott. But now, I'm thinking I might start my first starterless team. It would add to the freshness of the sequel.

                                      I chose Snivy on Black, and she sure is difficult to grind (same thing with the rest of my Pokemon due to the changes in the experience yield system, but its Attack and Special Attack make battles linger on more than they should). This time, I'll go with Oshawott. Anything beats Tepig's ugly/stupid/ridiculous evolved forms and their tired typings. Too bad Samurott's Special Attack is higher than it's Attack and it's not a water/fighting type, because if that were the case it would be a bombshell for all players!

                                        Not the greatest of them starters meaning self-traded Oshawott and Tepig is what I'll do. And until BW2 egg moves (if changed) are spoiled/revealed, then what egg moves I have on will hopefully be useful: Curse Tepig, Air Slash & Copycat Oshawott.

                                          I plan on picking Oshawott for my run of White 2. The little ice cream beaver has really grown on me since I've seen him in the anime. And the battle animation of him juggling his shell is to die for. The thing is too cute for my naive heart.

                                          For Black 2, I'm gonna pick Tepig, who was my first Unova starter in BW1.

                                          Snivy is up in the air. I plan on starting a new game in Black1 one of these days, and I planned to use Oshawott, but perhaps that will change. For Black 2, I think it all depends on what my other team members will be. I don't know yet, but it'll probably be Tepig for that one.
