All your favorite starters from each gen

    I'm just curious to see who everyone's favorite starters are. This thread has probably been done before, I don't know though, so forgive me if I'm being repetitive.

    So who are your favorite starters from each generation and why?

    Mine are all in my signature, but I'll reiterate anyway

    Gen one: Bulbasaur. I love all the starters from the first generation a lot, but Bulbasaur just seem like chill Pokémon. I can't really put my finger on why I love it so much. I guess I just do

    Gen two: Cyndaquil. I chose Cyndaquil the first time I played Pokémon Gold. I've played with all of those starters, but Cyndaquil has always been the one I liked best. Plus I think Typhlosion looks awesome!

    Gen three: Mudkip. It evolves into Swampert, my favorite Dual type water/ground Pokémon, and one of my favorites overall. I like Torchic too, but mostly because it's adorable

    Gen four: Turtwig. Mostly because I love Torterra. I love it's grass/ground typing.

    Gen five: Tepig. Two main reasons. One is because I love pigs. The other is because Emboar has a beard of fire. Plus reading Emboar's pokédex entry made me really like him, and it's what led me to choose Tepig for my in game team (I had trouble deciding who to start with)
  2. Gen 1:Squirtle

    Gen 2:Chikorita

    Gen 3 :Spectile

    Gen 4:Chimchar

    Gen 5:Oshawott
  3. RogueLapras

    Gen 1: I honestly liked all of the Gen 1 starters. Charmander, I guess, because it evolves into Charizard and I really like Dragons (even though it's typing is not Dragon).

    Gen 2: Totodile because all three of it's evolutions look really cool.

    Gen 3: Mudkip because of Swamperts water/ground typing.

    Gen 4: Again I like all 3 of them, but I choose Piplup. I like the Water/Steel typing of Empoleon, plus I like penguins.

    Gen 5: Snivy because I like the way Serperior looks.

    All starters from Sinnoh are fantastic in every aspect, it is impossible to choose one as my least favorite.

    My favorite starter of all time is charmander, as it was my very first Pokemon.
  8. The Musician

    The Musician Heracross trainer

    Gen 1: Charmander

    Gen 2: Totodile

    Gen 3: I suppose Torchic, although I'm not hugely into any of them

    Gen 4: None, they're all pretty cool, but none of them stand out

    Gen 5: Oshawott, but none of it's evolved forms

    1st and 2nd generations were the only ones where I really liked the starters, otherwise I just box them and use other Pokemon.

    The grass one in gen 4

    It seems like every starter gets some loving. Though Tepig doesn't seem to get much love, nor Bulbasaur.

    Generation 1: Charmander = Charizard was just the coolest in gen1
    Generation 2: Totodile = The other two were kind of easy replaceable for better poks in gen2.
    Generation 3: Treecko = Grovyle is pimp.
    Generation 4: Turtwig = Torterra is cool, I like its unique typing.
    Generation 5: Snivy = Other two suck extremly hard in design, Samurott looks decent though.

    disposable_heroes <- Best PKMN Ever

    Gen 1: Bulbasaur. I just thought it was the most useful of the starters in terms of getting past the first Gym Leaders.
    Gen 2: Cyndaquil. I thought it was the coolest of the three.
    Gen 3: Mudkip. Even before the "so i herd" meme.
    Gen 4: Turtwig. Although it's extremely vulnerable, it's just darn cute.
    Gen 5: Oshawott. I was so obsessed with it that all of my Web Page Design projects involved Oshawott in some way.
  20. The Invincible Kai

    The Invincible Kai Curtis/Yancy Fangirl

    Kanto: Charmander. I was on the Charizard bandwagon too, no lie .______.
    Johto: Uhh...I can't choose. I like Totodile more now, but I loved Cyndaquil when I was a kid. So they're both equal.
    Hoenn: Torchic, hands down. I thought Blaziken was the most BOSS Pokemon ever, especially when I saw it in the anime. But I like Swampert a lot, too.
    Sinnoh: Now this is a difficult choice. Infernape and Empoleon are just sooo awesome ;_;
    Unova: Oshawott. Because Dewott is my favorite Gen 5 Pokemon. :D
