I Choose You!


*A Starter Pokémon Fan Club*

Easily some of, if not the, most recognisable Pokémon of the franchise, Starter Pokémon hold a special place in our hearts. The choice of a Trainer of which to choose can be tough, but once we set out on our journeys with our partners by our sides, bonds and friendships like no other are formed for life.

This club is for all those who adore the Starters, to discuss aspects from cuteness to stats, to share memories and speculate the future! It's not just the main series games and their Starters that will be featured in this club, but also the spin-off Starters, as well as looking at the anime, manga, TCG and merchandise!

When I played through Gen I-III I picked the Fire-type since it's my favorite type, but after that I picked my favorite one for each game. In Gen IV, it was Piplup, Gen V Oshawott, and Gen VI was Delphox.

Reply to current topic: Despite being well known for a Water-type enthusiast, I pick different starters from each playthroughs. For example I chose Mudkip in Ruby, Torchic in Sapphire and Treecko in Emerald and similar to the other series. :D

I usually pick my favorite from each generation. In generation 4 it was Chimchar, in 5 it was Tepig, but in 6 it was Froakie :)

Thanks for joining guys! Seems like Treecko is getting a lot of love so far!

I always pick the Grass Starter but to be honest I generally prefer the Water Starters! I guess its superstition or something but I don't think I could not choose Grass even if I hated it!

Village said his very first Pokemon was Chimchar, who was everyone else's? Mine was Snivy.

I mainly choose my faves, although coincidentally they are mostly the Fire or Water-type. I don't know why, but who knows maybe the next generation might finally see me choosing the Grass one more but we'll see.

My first pokémon was Treecko back when I played Ruby for the first time, and like everyone else on their first playthrough that's pretty much the only thing I used. I think I caught a Wurmple, Aron and Electrike but I didn't bother using them at all.

Reply to current topic: I use to pick every grass starter but then when I played Heart Gold I had restart because I lost my Pokewalker at School which had my Bayleaf on it and I picked Totodile instead and I liked it more than Chikorita and then in Gen 5 I choose Snivy and despite Snivy having a cool design I was a bit disappointed and liked Oshawott more so these days I choose which starter I like the most instead of which type I like the most.

Reply to current topic: I usually pick my favourites, which usually are water-types! Sometimes I play with other startes when I restart a game, just to see its moveset, and to experience that Pokémon.

I pretty much still do that! The Starter just feels so special to me that I just want to use it all the time and only switch out if I absolutely need too. Except post-game when it's all about Heracross! :)

Welcome new members, thanks for joining!

Biogoji, I've given you Squirtle but if you want to change at any time just let me know, it's no problem.

I'm cool with that because after some deep thinking (Aka me getting a copy of blue) I have decided that I like Squirtle.

Do you always pick the same type Starter or do you choose whichever is your favourite in each generation? I pick whichever is my favourite in each region. that being said, I rarely go for the grass type one! Grass seems rather a redundant typing in the normal game-play and grass types are relatively more common too!

I choose which ever looks the coolest in design or sometimes, but not often, by type. I usually switch between fire and water every generation (i.e. Charmander for gen 1, totodile for gen 2, Ect. ) but there are some generations like generation 1, 3, and 6 where I like all the starters (though I do like 1 over the other 2 (until megas came out)). But I usually go with the trend of switching between Fire and Water type starters with the occasional Grass starter.

Reply to current topic: I always go with my favorites, unless it's Johto. I just can't decide who I like the best out of the three. They're all so great. Next time I play in that region I'm going with Cyndaquil though, because I went with Totodile in SS and Chickorita in HG.

Well, my favorite Pokemon of all time is currently a starter... so why not? Let's see if I can stay active here.

Reply to current topic: I used to always pick the Grass-type regardless of situation. It usually made me rather unique as a lot of people disregard that one in many generations for some reason. But the reason I did so began with my very first starter, Chikorita. I knew I wanted a Growlithe in my game, so I couldn't pick Cyndaquil. And I didn't want to be locked into a single Water-type as there is usually a large variety of them anyway. So I went with Chikorita. And ever since then, I've found the Grass-type is typically the better choice anyway. There aren't really many Grass-types I enjoy in most regions, nor a huge variety to choose from.

This rule was broken when I picked Fennekin in my Y version, due to the fact that Braixen became my favorite Pokemon ever and I just HAD to have it. However, I will probably continue my tradition of Grass for the next gen.

I mix it up usually whichever one is cutest or suits my needs like if i want a shinx in diamond (which i always do) im going to either have piplup or chimchar then narrow it down further to see if i want any of the water types or fire types in the region instead of the starters.

I always choose the starter which I like the most the first time, and after completing the game with it, I go with the other starters, so that I can always have a different team and a easier/harder time with the gym leaders and elite fours.

What do you think of the middle evolutions? Do you enjoy using them or do you try to fully evolve them as soon as possible?

I always evolve them generally because I like the final forms the best. If not, I usually like the basic stage better than the 2nd, so I'd usually just do it unevolved (makes it more of a challenge too). I liked Charmeleon the best at one point in time, but now I'm Charizard all the way.

I do love middle stages, especially because there's a few out there that have really good designs such as Braixen, Frogadier and of course, Dewott who nails the cross between cute and badass. Even Quilladin and Bayleef are cute on their own (despite the hate the former often gets). Sure, not all of them get love but you know we always have to have one awkward member of the evolution line and we all get used to it.

Reply to current topic: What do you think of the middle evolutions? Do you enjoy using them or do you try to fully evolve them as soon as possible?

Middle evolutions are quite alright for me, and for me, some of them are even more cooler than their final evolutions. I think Grovyle and Dewott are one of these prime examples of that, and we also have Braixen and Ivysaur which are equally good in their own way.
