I chose Piplup because when I first played Diamond I thought that the fake Piplup evo that I saw online was real so I was excited to have that on my team. Imagine how mad I was when I saw that Piplup evolved into Empoleon.
I think whenever a new gen is announced, there's always leaks of the new starter evos, many of which are fake. I remember when Sun & Moon were coming out and I saw a supposed Corocoro leak of the starters' evos, which I thought were real until the leaks from Game Freak came out. I thought Popplio was going to evolve into some kind of Darth Vader seal. :p:D

Chimchar was my first Pokémon ever. But second time I played Platinum, I chose Piplup. Empoleon is my favorite starter in any game, and would always choose it over the other two.

I chose Piplup in both Diamond and Pearl. I can't remember what I chose for Platinum, because I did a Bibarel solo run. I did not win. ): I couldn't beat that final Cyrus battle. I just restarted Platinum a few months ago, with Piplup again.

I've restarted enough times to pick all the starters, and I think they're all good, but Empoleon is my favorite.

If Sinnoh remakes are announced soon, which starter will you use in the remakes? Will you use the same starter(s) as you did in the originals, or will you use a different starter altogether?

Usually randomly pick tur or pip.
Never liked Chim's line until fairly recently, so if the remakes come, certainly choosing my little fire monkey, oh yes.
