Post your favorite starter and why.


Chose Piplup in Diamond, so I suppose I'll use Turtwig this time, as it's definitely my next-favorite. Infernape just looks ugly.


Beginning Trainer
looking over the gyms, I think I'm going with turtwig, and transfer over eggs of chimchar and piplup (got those ready in my PC on diamond, thank you ditto!!!) one question. do special even pokemon (ie magmorter and electrivire) suffer from the badge restrictions like traded pokemon do? (where they don't listen to you)

No longer trading.
Piplup,since I'd chose Chimchar in Pearl.

Probably Turtwig. Then transfer Lickitung over. :D

I'm going for Turtwig. S/he is like Squirtle, except s/he is a Grass-type and s/he will become part Grass-type later on...

And I should try starting with a Grass starter for once.

Choosing Chimchar, I like the mean backsprite of infernape. But i'm sending some pokes from diamond so i might not end up raising the chimchar.

Well... Chimchar's not my favorite but I already picked Piplup in my Diamond version. And of course I won't pick Turtwig. :/ Not cute enough.

So... Chimchar'll be my Platinum starter.

Probably Turtwig because I chose Chimchar in Diamond. Since there are so many Water Pokemons in the game, I don't feel like choosing Piplup.


Foreva and alwaez...
piplup because he's so cute!
*hugs piplup!*

Its simple:
Diamond: Turtwig
Pearl: Infernape
Platinum: Piplup

This is how I'v done it since RBY, and its worked out pretty well.
