I feel like Feraligatr's only fan. Meganium was awful.

Emploeon was sweet and his design was great but all people talk about from that gen is Infernape, Garchomp, and Cynthia.

Blaziken hogs all the spotlight for Sceptile and Swampert

Unova starters are all bad and not worth talking about

All people talk about is Fennekin this, Fennekin that, Fennekin should be this type, no he should be this type, Fennekin is so cute.

Jesus what about Froakie and Chespin? They get no love. I personally like Froakie the most.

I don't even need to bring Charizard up. There's most likely a Charizard cult where they worship him and sacrifice lizards to his name.

There are just as many grass starter fans, but like Venusaur they are strong and silent.

Whereas Charizard fans are fat, loud, aggressive reptiles.

I like feraligatr too.

I like Swampert more than blaziken. They both get equal amounts of attention I think.

Unova starters were not bad.

Because fire is usually the strongest and/or fastest which makes the whole game easier. Not to mention grass type has a lot of weaknesses.

Feraligatr is still my favorite starter, with Blastoise and Empoleon not far behind.

Swampert? Ugh. I broke my always-water start tradition and grabbed the grass gen 3 just cause.

I think Froakie's ugly and Fennekin's cute so...yup. Great way for a grown man to make his decisions, right? XD

Grass - weak to poison ( a garbage type anyway) and ice

Fire - weak to water( lol) rock, ground, fairy, igglybuff etc

1) Feraligatr was my favorite as well.

2) Blaziken hogs all the spotlight because its the most powerful. Also back in the day Mudkip/Swampert was on top

3) Infernape was the only good Gen 4 starter. It could literally beat down the other two starters with ease thanks to its Fire/Fighting typing. Empoleon was easily the weakest of the 3.

Grass is also weak to bug and flying and fire isn't weak to fairy.

Igglybuff is weak to existing, so it shouldn't pose a threat.

I think of it as this

The trainer has the flame ambition, that burning will to tackle any obstacle . That's why most MC's are protrayed to have the Fire Starter.


Me, i like the way things flow like water, so naturally i choose the water type :)
