Which Generation of Pokémon had the best early Pokémon selection?

An early Pokémon counts as any Pokémon you can legitimately catch in the game before you receive your first gym badge.

I personally say, Generation 3. You could have caught a ralts, ninjask, shroomish, slakoth, abra, marill, lotad, nuzleaf, surskit. Top quality pokemon in my opinion.

White 2 had the best of the games I've played because of Riolu.

SoulSilver and Platinum had a lot of crap.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I'm going to say Black 2 and White 2. You can get Riolu and tons of other stuff very early.

I was gonna say Gen IV, but then people brought up B/W2's Riolu... So, yeah.

Not an Updated remake? Gen 4. Luxray, Gyrados, and Staraptor are all great. Updated, B2/W2 no doubt.

B2/W2, followed by G/S/C/HG/SS. You can actually get some decent Pokemon in those games instead of being stuck with the usual early-route birds and rodents.

You're kidding right? Right?

Gen 5, for giving you both Riolu and Marill in the early routes.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tT2wyCXJ72s
