I have this strange urge to replay Platinum.
Choose my starter!

If I get all three, I won't use anything except for them.

I am partial to curse turtwig myself. None of the choices are bad though outside the meta game. Chimchar will probably win anyway though.

Empoleon is awesome. I am biased toward steel types though.

I'd say Chimchar out of those. You might also try using an alternate starter, if someone can trade you over an egg. I remember having a lot of fun with my Munchlax and Gibile playthroughs. Gibile does have issues during the middle of the game though.

I'm surprised nobody has told me to use all three yet.
