    In my opinion, Squirtle. Really defensive, and can deal good damage. Though Bulbasaur works if you want to knock out Brock and Misty quickly, but I still say Squirtle
    Also, fix your sound, I can't hear you

    Charmander, to make the first two Gyms more challenging.

    Okay. So you want a starter.......
    The best starter to choose is squirtle. Because a water type like squirtle can defeat most of the gym leaders and elite 4 members easily. But it should have very good and balanced moves.
    The next choice is charmander. Well thats a cool looking pokemon. And when it evolves charizard it would be very useful. It can even learn dragon type moves. But it would be a challenging one.
    If you want more challenge, pick bulbasaur. Because its very tough to win against the gym leaders and elite4 members using a grass type like it.

    I prefer to take charmander as starter. But its your choice. Do what you like is better. Choose your best starter. And good luck on your journey. Cuz you have a long way to go.

    I personally would say Charmander. He was my original starter way back in the day. In all honesty, I do like the challenge the first gyms bring to training and fighting, though. I've raised many Charmanders and it's always worked out great for me.

    I will never forget the time that I solo Blaine's gym with my Venusaur, choose bulbasaur he's wonderful. Squirtle is Adlai good, I never personally liked charizard however.

    Take Bulbasaur. You'd have a sub-seeder before you even go to Victory Road. The substitute move tutor is at Fuschia City. Sleep Powder and Leech Seed are an excellent combo.

    Pick whatever floats your boat. They all have their strengths and weaknesses.

    Don't pick charmander. Just don't
    I would take bulbasaur just for personal preference (and its awesomeness)
    but they all are on equal standing.
    Except charmander

    I don't think it really matters, no mater what you choose you will come across a Pokemon your starter will have trouble against.

    bro Cool story bro

    I usually pick Squirtle or Bulbasaur. I think I chose Charmander once and it sucked haha. ;080;
