Eevee here. It runs away at low health and ends up getting you killed because of it.

If we are talking about power in-game, I'd have to go with Pikachu. He can't do anything to the first gym leader, and is incapable or evolving unless you trade him.

Eevee as a partner is pretty tough to deal with but I love eevee too much to vote for it in this poll.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

Chikorita has a type disadvantage against 7 of the Jotho gyms, 3 members of the elite 4 and the champion.
It can't get much worse than that.

Psyduck is actually the best starter in Mystery Dungeon. Cloud Nine and Damp are both amazing abilities for dungeons, and it gets both of them. Not having to worry about annoying weather conditions or explosion traps, and the ability to walk over water is just fantastic.

But Skitty is just terrible.
