You know what, that brings up an interesting point. I've known people who always choose Fire, or Water, or (in rarer cases) Grass. Similarly, I've known people who have never picked a Starter of a certain Type, like you.
Me, I've been pretty even in terms of my favorite Starters: 2 Grass, 2 Fire, 3 Water.
So, what I'm wondering is, given that I've seen a lot of people go routes they normally wouldn't after the reveals of these final Evos, what kind of track record does everyone have with Starters, and did these Starters change their streaks?
For me, this is my third Generation in which the Water Starter is my favorite. Popplio is adorable, and I love the progression into Primarina.
Gen 1: charmander (definitely my favorite, though I like the other lines too, but not so much their final evolutions)
Gen 2: cyndaquil (definitely my favorite, although I also like the grass line. totadile is cute too, but I hate its evos)
Gen 3: treeko (I've actually never played a gen 3 game, but this would be what I would pick if I ever did, since it's final evo is by far my favorite out of the three, although not my favorite starter ever. For the first form, though, I like mudkip the best, though I think its evos are ugly. I despise the torchic line.)
Gen 4: ? (I didn't like any of the final forms here. I picked turtwig on my playthrough, and was subsequently disappointed when it went ugly... I can tolerate
grass and water final evos, although I don't really like
them, but I hate the chimchar line
Gen 5: snivy/osshawott (I actually picked oshawatt on my only playthrough of this gen, thinking samurott would be better than serperior (haha... ha...), and while I do like samurott's design, which grew on me more after my decision, I still do like serperior... I don't know if I can really choose between them. Not my favorite starters ever, though.)
Gen 6: froakie (I didn't really like how any of the starters ended up here again, and picked froakie as the most tolerable of the three. I think I boxed it, though, as I waited until pokemon bank was out and brought over a team for my first playthrough. I was really dissapointed with delphox, although it's grown to be a bit more tolerable to me. I had wished it would end up more like ninetails. I just really hate the bipedal humanoid fire starters thing. It's when I stopped liking them...)
Gen 7: rowlett? (my favorite of all the evos is torracat, though incineroar is my least favorite starter form ever
. I despise
it. Why?! Why?!!!
I don't like popplio, and I hated primarina when it first leaked, but primarina has since grown on me, and while it's not one of my favorites, I can appreciate it decently and don't hate it anymore by any means. Might even pick it or otherwise use it sometime, depending on how many playthroughs I do and how good it is. Thank goodness it didn't evolve into some of those creepy clown fanarts. The water spider is enough nightmare-fuel. (Although, funnily enough I've been thinking lately I might actually use that spider, despite it creeping me out, and name it after the Phantom Troupe from Hunter x Hunter.) Of the final evos, decidueye is probably my favorite, although I really think a darker color scheme would have been more fitting for it. Will definitely have to breed a shiny for it. Still not my favorite ever, but it seems pretty cool and I'm happy with it. But poor litten... ;_
Edit: my favorite forms overall are probably charizard and quilava, both fire types. Charizard's a freaking dragon and quilava's freaking adorable and I want to hug it! then the humanoid bipedal often fighting or fighting-esque set in and fire types became my least favorite starters...
