Definately Cyndaquil. Especially since being a stupid child during my Silver days I released my Quilava because I thought that by "release" it meant "let it out of its Pokeball so it can follow you around". Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.
out of all games this is the hardest of all starters to choose, although chikorita has a lot of problems in the first to gyms, and totodile makes it so easier to pass the game with ice punch, cyndaquil is pretty much the neutral one
im not gonna choose totodile coz i already have a shiny ev trained feraligatr so theres no point in raising another one
I might play through once with my old school Silver team starting with Cyndaquil but since I got him as a team member on Diamond and used Meganium in Platinum...I've never used Totodile so I'll probably grab him...
I mean, Silver was the first Pokemon game I ever held. It's got like, sentimental value on me. I STILL play Silver version now. And since I started with a Totodile then, like, 10 years ago, I'm gonna go back to basics this time. Actually, I really wanted to use Cyndaquil. Typhlosion is awsome. But Totodile was the first Pokemon I ever had, so since I've finally gotten a chance once again, I'm going to star with Totodile.
