    I usually just chose the cutest.

    Piplup, in Pearl and Diamond because I liked penguins at that time, and Chikorita for HeartGold. I still like Cyndaquil and Chimchar though, I just like Chikorita and Piplup.

    Cyndaquil and Chimchar. FIRE TYPES STARTERS FTW.
    But I like Cyndaquil way more than Chimchar only to let you know.

    In DP yeah, I went for Piplup. C'mon, it's a penguin, who wouldn't?
    And in Platinum, the exact same penguin all over again, just hours after restarting Diamond :/

    For SoulSilver it was Cyndaquil, but for HeartGold it was Totodile, and I didn't get to the Elite Four on SS.

    I always choose fire types as starters, so Chimchar in Platinum and Cyndaquil in Soul Silver.

      Piplup evolves into a steel penguin... I don't even have to give you more reasons why it's the best.

        but i prefer grass pokemon because you can really mess with trainers battle plans. poisonpowder, sleep powder. ect. plus giga drain. at high levels grass pokemon become virtually unstoppable

          Chimchar and Cyndaquil! Fighting Monkeys and Burning otters; it doesn't get cooler than that.

            Poor Chikorita and Turtwig! ): I chose both in my first playthroughs of the respectives games. However I'm now going to be using Totodile as I got my shiny one!

              I chose turtwig for my first runthrough of Diamond, and currently have a bayleef (so chickorita) in SoulSilver

                Chimchar has never failed me in D/P/Platinum. Though I absolutely love Piplup!
                For HGSS, Cyndaquil is great but Chikorita is awesome too. In fact, it happens to be my favorite grass-type starter.

                I've used all starters at least once in D/P, but the starter I spent the longest time on / with was Piplup. It's one of the only Pokemon I've ever had with which I managed to hit Level 100.

                As for HG/SS, I've used both Cyndaquil and Totodile, but by far my favourite out of those is Cyndaquil, because it's an early Fire-type and I can't easily obtain Growlithe in SoulSilver.

                  In Pokemon Platinum, I choose either Chimchar or Turtwig as they are both my favourite pokemon in the sinnoh region (and they are really powerful) and in HG & SS my starters were either totodile or cyndaquil

                  In Diamond it was a tough choice between Chimchar and Piplup as I liked them both quite a lot and their evolutions, but ultimately I chose Chimchar because I like fire types. I would later pick Piplup on Platinum to make up for that previous decision.

                  On Heart Gold and Soul Silver I picked Cyndaquil which is the easiest choice in the world for me because my favourite pokémon is Typhlosion. I'm glad to see Cyndaquil is quite a popular choice amongst other members too.

                    I always chose Chimchar and Cyndaquil, unless doing a challenge where I needed to use one of the others.

                    I chose Chimchar on my first Pearl playthrough, however I quickly started over due to a bad nature and decided to pick Turtwig instead.

                    On Soulsilver I chose Totodile because I found it the most useful in Silver.

                      I'm definitely a fire type person. So Cyndaquil.

                      Though Chimchar is awesome, I prefer pure fire types to fire/fighting, though I will admit it can be useful, I just prefer straight up fire. :3

                        I chose Turtwig for my playthrough, before having an incomplete game with my Piplup which I ditched (still feel sorry...). Because he looks nice and of course I am in love with Torterra's ability to beat both starters!
                        And of course, as per my Water type tradition I took Totodile after having a nice breezing playthrough with it in Gold.

                            Grass types all the way. I chose Chikorita in SoulSilver but ended up replacing him with Dragonite later on in the game. I chose Turtwig in Pearl and kept him the whole way through, mainly to use ground type moves after he evolved in to Torterra.

                              I always pick the fire starter.

                                I didn't know Piplup was that popular among fans but yea I did pick Piplup as my starter.
                                For HG/SS it was Cyndaquil still.

                                Chimchar in Platinum and Chikorita in SoulSilver.

                                  Didn't have to think about it much since I was going to use all three Sinnoh starters, I picked Piplup in Diamond, Turtwig in pearl and Chimchar in Platinum. Chimchar however is my preferred out of the three.

                                  In HG/SS I picked Totodile and Cyndaquil, never liked using Chikorita...

                                    I chose Chimchar. After seeing Piplupe's motionless body when my sister had her file, I decided I prefer monkey butt to motionless penguins. :x

                                      I chose Cyndaquil in HGSS, but that's because I always choose fire types. :]
