My Starter in Diamond was Naetle (Turtwig), and my Starter in Pearl was Pochama (Piplup). When Platinum version was released, I chose Hikozaru (Chimchar) since I had never used one prior to that game.

I chose Turtwig, my first time ever playing. Though, can’t remember which game I got first (Diamond or Pearl). I’d wound up choosing Empoleon, for the opposite version, which is still my favorite water starter and one of my favorite ‘mons.

Around the time I first got Platinum, I chose Chimchar.

In my Platinum playthrough, I chose Chimchar (he's obviously now an Infernape). I usually choose the Fire starter and have done so in every generation since Gen 3. I think all the Sinnoh starters are cute, but Chimchar is my favourite. :D

Technically Ponyta was available in the wild in all three Sinnoh games during the main story line. Platinum also had a lot of other Fire types available.

Like Houndour.
