Charmander, Cyndaquil, Torchic and Piplup. I've played with the others too, but those are my primary ones.

5th gen it'll probably be Tsutarja, but I'd like to see their evos before deciding.

Gen 3 Replay:
- Treecko in Emerald

Once I'm done with my replay in Emerald, I'm going to play Leaf Green again, and use Squirtle as my starter again. <3 Squirtle.
And as for me:

Generation I:

Yellow - Pikachu, of course.

Generation II:

Silver - Cyndaquil
Crystal - Chikorita

Generation III:
Sapphire - Treecko (Mudkip in my current replay)
Emerald - Torchic
LeafGreen - Squirtle

Generation IV:

Pearl - Turtwig (Piplup in my current replay)
SoulSilver - Chikorita on the first runthrough, Totodile on the second
HeartGold - Chikorita (I love Chikorita. <3)

Generation V:

Haven't decided yet. I don't usually choose the Fire starter, so I may end up picking Pokabu to try something different. But the other two are cool too, so it's hard to decide.


Sexuality is a cult.
Generation IV:

Platinum: Turtwig (Piplup in my restarted one)
HeartGold: Cyndaquil

Generation III:

FireRed: Charmander (Would've been Bulby, but my friend gave his to me)
