Is Meganium undisputedly the worst starter ever?

I think that as far as ingame play goes, Meganium is likely the worst.

I like Meganium :(. Then again mine did just fine, when I played through Heart Gold. ...it might also have helped that the thing appears to have an unhealthy obsession with my character.

I found Serperior to be worse, actually, since Meganium can actually learn some form of coverage moves. Earthquake makes a big difference as far as ingame goes...

Sadly, when it comes to competitive battling, Meganium is indeed probably the worst starter...

I thought that Serp was better, and I used both Grass starters.

It lacks EQ, but Coil comes fairly early, and it with Leaf Blade/Return will do a surprising amount of work. BW2 gives it an early Aqua Tail, and Dragon Pulse for Giga Drain users. Screens come early as well.

Either Meganium or Serperior are the worst in-game. Overall Meganium is the worst because at least Serperior has its DW ability.

There's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Can we at least agree that Chikorita is adorable?

Right? :(

I'm in agreement here, I used Serperior in White and he got by fine with Coil/Leech seed/Leaf Blade, which allowed him to tank a good number of the opponents and strike back hard. Not the most efficient strategy but at least he had something to fall back on.
