2nd Gen: Cyndaquil, Silver will always be my favorite game because it came with my favorite designs for pokemon. Espeon, Scizor, Skarmory, Zangoose, Ampharos, Typhlosion. ;)
Zagoose is a 3rd gen pokemon. Easy to remember due to its pearing with Seviper.
Anyway, on topic :
Crystal : Chikorita. It was my first pokemon game ever and I was like 8 years old IIRC. I Had a REALLY hard time with it. Hated every second.
Red : Charmander. Still 8 years old. I thought I HAD to pick the starter on the cover box, otherwise it would not obey me (lol). But even if I could choose "freely, I'd still pick Charmander!
Sapphite : Torchic. I LOVED THAT AWESOME FIRE/FIGHTING COMBO! Emerald : Mudkip, AMAZING STARTER! I like how bulky it is whilst being VERY strong, also : IT IS ONLY WEAK TO GRASS! Which doesn't matter due to Ice Beam!
4th gen : Chimchar. Same as Blaziken, but even faster!
Black (1st) : Oshawot. Another Fire Fighting, but this time a hella weaker. No thanks. It's time for something new!
Black (2nd) : Chimchar + Mudkip + Snivy - I traded the starters from other gens to make a journey with them. I Picked Snivy cuz I wanted to see how Emboar works for my Rival.
Black 2 : Charmander + Spheal - Wanted to try something new...
Blue: Squirtle (all time favorite) Red: Charmander Yellow: Pikachu... Silver: Cyndaquil Gold: Cyndaquil Crystal: Totodile Ruby: Torchic Sapphire: Treecko Emerald: All three (Traded among own games) LeafGreen: Squirtle FireRed: Bulbasaur Diamond: Piplup Pearl: Chimchar Platinum: Elekid (traded an Egg in) SoulSilver: Cyndaquil HeartGold: Totodile White: Oshawott Black: Tepig Black2: Riolu (couldn't resist) White2: Beldum (traded an Egg in) X/Y: Chespin
I've used every starter at some point though, and usually have used all three by the time the third game comes out. At this point I just try to use Pokes I haven't used before, which is how Beldum won out...
I believe that everyone should be nice to each other on these boards, or at least be respectful or only jokingly mean. Number of people who agree: 45
