    I chose Cyndaquil a lot just because I loved the look as a kid, now I choose Totodile over all. I simply love his stats and early evolution.

    I went with Cyndaquil in my Gold version because it's strong and has that type advantage to Bugsy in the second gym, but then in Crystal I went with Totodile because it was cute in the anime (literally, that's why )

      This was my least favourite gen starter-wise.

      I liked Totodile the most, though. Simply because I like water over grass and fire.

          They shouldn't have had a third gen of Fire/Fighting as a starter. Once was enough. Twice was fine. Three was pushing it.

            I almost always went with Cyndaquil. He's so cute, and I always seem to start with the fire type. At least during my first play through.

            The first time I played I decided to go with Totodile because I had a thing for Water types and I am happy that I did. He turned out to be a very valuable Pokemon throughout my entire journey because of his good strength. The other two I eventually used on later playthroughs and had decent success with as well although Meganium was really hard to train.

              I've had playthroughs with each of them as I like all three of this gen!
              But I think Cyndaquil is my most common choice : ) followed my Chikorita - she must have been the one I've used last too.

                I've chosen all three at different points, but Totodile was my most common choice, followed by Chikorita, and then Cyndaquil. I usually have a preference for water types.

                  The cool thing about the Gold/Silver/Crystal, is that the first few gyms don't offer an immediate 'best' pick, so you don't have to be tied to Chikorita to have a nice experience.

                  Thus, I went with Cyndaquil (before realizing that the second gym is a bug gym, where Cyndaquil can pretty much solo the whole place in one go.) He's got good power, and looks cool and cute at the same time.

                    I went with Cyndaquil on my first run, and I remember it became a very powerful Typhlosion that I had for a few years. I felt like a boss with it :p

                        To be honest, I wanted Chikorita.
                        But on my first pick it was totodile, still it was sooo strong!

                          Cydiquil for sure! His final evolution is beyond awesome
                          but then sometimes it'll be chikorita becasue i love bulbasaur so it's almost fitting..

                              Totodile for me. My brother picked Cyndaquil so I picked his weakness. It was our way of playing until Gen 4 where I picked fire and he picked water.

                              Totodile. Feraligatr is simply the definition of a BAMF. <3

                                Cyndaquil FTW. I always choose Cyndaquil because Quilava and Typhlosion are total beasts. XD

                                  I chose Tododile. It looks the coolest and I very rarely chose Squirtle in gen 1, since I love Charizard's looks and Bulbasaur was more useful against the first four gyms. I had a lot of fun with it, especially since it was my first Pokemon that could learn dark type moves (take that, pesky psychics! And, I totally didn't abuse the Alakazam imbalance in Gen 1...).

                                  Really? My feraligator has lousy stats, though I still love it.

                                    First time I ever played, I chose Cyndaquil because I was a fan of the Fire type. Since I like all three of the Johto starters, I switched around who I started with each time I played the game. But since I don't want to spend a lot of time building a team in the early game, I don't pick Chikorita as much as the other two. The last time I played, I started with Totodile, and he proved to be useful.

                                      Well, when I initially started Gold, I went with Cyndaquil. I liked its design best at the time (still do adore it, actually) and it does fit my battling style best still, to this day.

                                      After a try with Chikorita (which was... not all that great, although on more recent runs I've learned how to utilize it a bit more properly due to being smarter than I was back then) it was Totodile's turn... and I don't know why, but I fell in love with the little guy. So it's been Totodile ever since.

                                        I started with a Totodile named Toto. So imaginative. I think my two friends and I decided to all choose different starters? Can't remember why I ended up with Totodile though.

                                          I always chose Cyndaquil when I played Gold and Crystal ! I liked him the first time, then the rest just became tradition. ... Actually I did pick Chikorita once, but it just wasn't the same !

                                          I usually go with fire types since you usually can't get a good fire type til later in the game. I always thought cyndaquil was the coolest-looking of the three.

                                          That said, they're all good. Feraligatr makes a great HM slave and Meganium is a great buffer with light screen, reflect, synthesis, and sleep powder.

                                            I don't remember which one I picked the first time I played the game, but my favorite starter of the three is definitely Cyndaquil. I loved fire types and Typhlosion was sweet
