    Basically is about what your favorite Unova starter is and why.

    My favorite is Tepig because it is a cool looking when it becomes Emboar the fire/fighting pokemon and it can learn scald.

    Second favorite is Oshawott because it looks amazing as a Samurott and has less weaknesses.

    Snivy because it fully evolves into a cool Serperior, which has a good HA, Contrary, allowing it to overpower the other starters when combined with Leaf Storm. When I first saw them, Snivy appealed to me the most because it looked cooler than the other starters.
  3. Oshawott because it evolves into one of my six favorite Pokemon, Samurott.

    Oshawott is my favorite Gen 5 Starter since he's perfectly adorable: Dewott and Samurott don't impress me much though. Snivy's my second favorite though. It just looks so cool. :p
  5. Forgot to mention my second favorite, which would be Tepig.
    I like Tepig a lot better than Pignite and Emboar, though.

    Snivy/Serperior hands down became my favorite starter. Snakes!! I did not like Servine though Snivy and Serperior where the ones who I liked and chose on both BW and BW2.
    Their designs just said/screamed cool, and elegant with a tint of serious.

    Although I don't like Oshawott design-wise as much as Snivy and Tepig,I keep choosing it because I love Samurott.Serperior's movepool is too limited and it lacks attacking power,and Emboar is too slow(not to mention the third Fire/Fighting fully evolved starter in a row),so Samurott appears to be the most balanced of the three.

    I like the three of them about the same, but I'd say that I like Oshawott a little more than the other two. It's pretty cute and I generally prefer Water Pokemon over Fire and Grass types. Plus, out of the final evolutions of the Unova starters, I think I enjoyed using Samurott the most.

    Snivy all the way. My favorite out of all Grass-starters, and my favorite Unova starter. I used it while playing through Black and it was great. A somewhat limited movepool didn't matter much when it had great defenses and speed to make up for it. It also has a really cool Hidden Ability, and it would have been really cool if it had ever been released with it in this generation. Now it never was but it doesn't matter because it is still cool. The designs of the Snivy line are cool too, Serperior in particular is really cool and I like its near-royal look.

    Though I really like Oshawott and Tepig as well, both of them were fun to use when I played through White and Black 2, respectively.

    Snivy has always been my favorite and Serperior is still easily one of my all-time favorites, within the top ten at least. Serperior looks really regal, while also being a giant snake that fires off Leaf Storms, which is awesome. Tepig and Oshawott aren't too bad I guess, but the former's evolutions are pretty ugly, while Samurott's design just rubs me the wrong way for some reason.

    Probably Snivy. Trust me, I chose Tepig in White and I hate the damn thing. Snivy, though... okay, maybe Grass isn't exactly the best type, but the design is just perfect. And when we get to Serperior... oh boy. I like snakes in general, but Serperior just looks like a real king of the jungle, don't it? The only thing I can think of that really detracts from the line is how annoying Servine is in Pokemon Rumble Blast. Damn Leaf Tornado...

    Snivy, I like the evolutions and how it becomes a snake.
    Oshawott is second, I always liked Dewott and Samurott but I didn't originally like just plain Oshawott. The anime changed that though and I picked him in B 2

    Snivy all the way, he's the only grass starter I love besides Treeko. Honestly it has to be a good Pokemon to get me to use grass ones, I love his design and all the evolutions he has. :)

    I love Serperior's regal-like design as well since I find it very beautiful and appealing. Serperior has my favourite design of the final evolutions of the Unova starters for sure.

    Snivy was the first starter I used in the Gen 5 games, so I also have a soft spot for the Snivy line because of that.

    I found the Snivy line the most useful/powerful of all the starter lines, especially earlier in the game. There just aren't a lot of useful Grass types until late in the game.

    I like somewhat bulky water types, so Oshawott family is my favorite. I also like the design of Samurott the most, so that's another reason.

    I actually always pick the grass starter first for every Pokemon game that I play, so the first starter I picked was Snivy. I might've liked this family the most, but I don't like its in-game stats too much.

    Tepig. I don't like the Snivy or Oshawott lines, save for Dewott. I like Emboar's design and that it can learn a lot of different types of moves. If only it wasn't fire/fighting.

    I enjoy Snivy and its evolution line quite a bit mainly because of their snake design and regal look (Serperior). Tepig and Oshawott were bleh to me the first time I seen them.

    At first I was going to pick Tepig since I've never began my first playthrough with a fire type yet, but that changed when I saw Dewott in Corocoro. Right then I decided to choose Oshawott instead, but I feel bad for Tepig :( Especially since it's probably the least popular fire starter. I love all forms of Oshawott though. Dangit no more water starters, I need to pick fire next gen

    Its reductive type combination is one of the reasons why I'm not a huge Tepig fan myself. I didn't like choosing it as my Starter in Gen 5 knowing that it was basically a copy of Torchic's and Chimchar's evolutionary lines.
