Gen V. Snivy looked nice but the other two looked like crap. Also other than Samurott you could get a much better replacement for the starters pretty early in the game (Lilligant outranked Serperior and Darmanitan made Emboar look like crap - not like it already doesn't).

Honorable mentions:

Gen II: Meganium is absolutely useless ingame.

Gen III: Lotad, wich puts Treecko to shame, right in the first route of the game.

Gen IV: Piplup.

I'm going to go with Gen 4 because of that groups derivation. Infernape is just a a monkey version of Blaziken without the facetious fighting chicken thing going on. Torterra is Venusaur with a tree instead of a flower. Empoleon is admittedly original, breaking this chain of criticism, but I'm hard pressed in finding faults with all three starters from any generation.

P.S. I know Emboar is another fire/fighting rip-off, but I can make funny Russian Borris jokes with him.

Lookwise:

Blastoise > Swampert > Samurott = Greninja > Feraligatr > Empoleon

Typhlosion = Delphox > Charizard > Emboar >>> Blaziken > Infernape

Venusaur > Chesnaught > Meganium > Serperior > Torterra > Sceptile

I liked the starters in Gen 2, even Meganium... Its eventual mega evolution is going to break the game so bad. Right? Plus Gen 2 is the only one that maintained pure typing, which I actually liked.

I didn't like Gen 4 starters at all. Another fire/fighting, a grass type that's now even weaker to ice, and a water/steel that was decent, but I hated the penguin design. Sorry Piplup.

I have to go with the sixth gen. The dual types hurt more than they help. Frogadier's movepool is terrible, Chesnaught looks awful and has a weird typing, and Delphox is outclassed by Torchic and Charmander.

This gen. Earhair, a patriotic frog, and an oshawott grass clone. If only Fennekin didn't have all that ugly earhair..

Smugleaf/Snivy > 3 > 2 > 1 > 4 = rest of 5 > 6


What are you talking about, Greninja is amazing and could probably beat every starter besides blaziken.

how is his movepool terrible '_' It's not amazing by any means but it's good. The only thing that makes it suck is that he only learns like two dark moves through leveling

i don't understand the criticism Greninja gets
