I've got through WT every starter from gen 1-6 and I want to breed some to use competitively. I just want to know of all of the starters, which ones are good enough to be considered "worth breeding"? and which should I not bother with because they just aren't good enough.
I'm pretty sure its safe to say that the gen 1 starters (because of their megas) can all be somewhat viable. Torchic also speaks for itself. But aside from those I really have no idea the viability of the others. Can anyone help me out? --- Miranda 5300-9719-1376

Delphox --- US had absolutely no wifi events from gens 1 to 3 so don't complain

All gen 1, the gen 3 after ORAS comes out (blaziken is worth using now), some people use infernape, but I don't think its worth using, and greninja. --- "It's a f***ing chaos snake, Glove!"

Charizard Greninja Blaziken Venusaur Infernape
I'm assuming sceptile and swampert will be usable in oras. --- Official Mega Sceptile of every Goddamn Board. #MegaSalamence2stronk FC:3540-1140-9837 IGN:Barry

Infernape, Greninja, Swampert are all pretty good

Charizard: Overrated, but the megas are really good Blastoise: Mega is decent Venusaur: Mega is amazing at being a defensive wall/tank Typhlosion: Best of the Johto starters, but still not very good Feraligatr: Basically Gyarados, but much worse Meganium: Garbage Blaziken: If you can get the Speed Boost ability on it, it's AMAZING. Easily the best on this list. Sceptile: Not too bad, it'll probably get better with the Mega in OR/AS Swampert: Same as Sceptile Infernape: If you can't get Speed Boost on Blaziken, use this guy. Empoleon: Never used it, but I heard it's pretty decent. Torterra: Garbage Emboar: You should never use this over Blaziken or Infernape. Serperior: Not very good Samurott: Garbage Delphox: Has some gimmicky sets, but generally not a very good pick. Greninja: Similar to Blaziken, it needs it's HA (Protean) to be good, but it's very good with that ability Chesnaught: Pretty good, if you like a defensive playstyle.

Mainly, the starters you'd want to look at are Venusaur, Charizard, Blaziken, Infernape and Greninja.
Blastoise, Swampert, Empoleon and Chesnaught aren't bad choices, either.
