if you take venesaur then don't take paras, i'd say use exeggutor, dodrio, blastoise, magmar, hitmonchan/lee and jolteon/raichu, those are the best choices

if you you want to use less common pokemon you could just not use a starter. It makes it more interesting if youve played through the game before.

i played on my ruby with a wurmple that i caught at the start, the dustox whas unbeatable(use a pokemon that levels up faster)
If you take Venusaur, all I can think of are Rapidash, Dewgong, Hypno, Fearow/Golbat, and Jolteon/Electrode.

If you take Charizard, you can get whatever's above except Rapidash and Fearow, then Golbat/Arbok, and Exeggutor/Vileplume.

If you take Blastoise, you can get whatever's in Venusaur except Dewgong, then take Exeggutor/Vileplume.

So basically you choose between:

Exeggutor/Vileplume, Rapidash, Dewgong, Hypno, Jolteon/Electrode, Fearow/Golbat, and Golbat/Arbok.

These are all my suggestions, though. Be diverse, and have fun. ^_^

Yeah, use Hypno. He's on my team just now. Just beat Koga's poison gym with him. It was awesome.

My Charmander's been lazing in the pc since the start. Why do so many people feel they *have* to use a starter all the way through?
