Turtwig!


Pikapikapikap1ka

Treecko! Such a cool lad!


samian07

Yup Treecko, Grovyle and Sceptile are my absolute favourites


CptTEMH

Hamilton, he's just really handsome


Davey0215

Wow that’s a pretty obscure reference


83Dotto

I think I'll call him Hamilton!


feliperennt

Hahaha is it from the granny video?


CptTEMH

Yes indeed. Classic


[deleted]

I understand that reference


JannaDD126

I name all my charmanders Hamilton now after I saw that video lol


LadyAthena657

Nothing will ever top bulbasaur


Kaylamarie92

Number one in the Pokédex, number one in my heart


Bagdar13

Agreed.


crowkk

*Turtwig and rowlet want to know your location*


LadyAthena657

Same place as always. In the champions seat at the pokemon league


Highmae

This is the only correct answer


Last_bus_home

Always


Telknub

Mudkip!


SaucepanSamurai

Yes.


willl94

Pretty obvious tho


justhereforthememee

Ah a man of culture I see


alpacatheguy

That's the correct answer.


Veldin461

Cyndaquil. I can't even tell why, I just really like it for some reason.


DJ-Fein

Cause it’s got the cutest eyes ever?


[deleted]

piplup❤️ my first ever Pokemon


stinkypoopchute

totodile all the way


skarr46

My first ever Pokémon 😊


autumneight

Sobble!!!!!


Unchosenone7

All gen 2 starters hold a special place in my heart


SolarKea

Rowlet


britter87954

Squirtle for me.


albondiga_

Snivy. Evolution line was magnificent


legorainhurts

Charmander for me, he was my first Pokémon way back when I was just a kid playing Pokémon red on my game boy color.


KrysleQuinsen

Never played beyond Gen 4 so... Grass: Treeko Fire: Charmander Water: Totodile Snivy and Sobble got favorite at first sight, though.


PMeinspirativityness

So you're getting back into it now?


KrysleQuinsen

Yepp, got the Shield version (friend got Sword) and I'll pick Sobble for sure.


PMeinspirativityness

Welcome back!


Rotorboy21

Same on all accounts lol


BlueBadger99

Cyndaquil, great memories with that little guy


NormalPencil

If I had to choose .... fennekin, maybe piplup


LieStagburn

Bulbasaur but I really can't wait for Grookey.


gmendezm

Froakie is amazing.


gilbertoe

Gotta say Chimchar man.


Lead_Lion

Designwise my favorite fire type starters. Decent speed, Iron fist and diverse moveset to choose from too. I feel like the Chimchar line is underappreciated for being the second fire/fighting type starters just one gen after the torchic line.


Omer1698

My boy oshawott.


ColoradoGhoul

Cyndaquil will always hold a special place in my heart.


cjcduck17

Piplup. Always has been, always will be.


pokemonmastr333

As an asian with asian eyes, i totally relate to cyndaquil and hes my fav


RealSlime87

Torchic all the way


[deleted]

Was scrolling for this cause blazekin is just the most OP OG final evo.


elgiggler

finally some freaking torchic love had to scroll all the way down for it


Buttfuck18

My man


[deleted]

Ayyyyy Torchic gang, took a scroll but shouts out to my first ever Pokémon, cant wait to transfer it to Pokémon Home, I’ve had that Blaziken since sapphire on my gameboy advanced when I was 7


dogbee22

Let’s get some love for my boy Oshawott


DevilFlamingo

Who was cheated of being the first Water-Fighting starter. :( And should've had access to Sacred Sword from the get-go. That and I don't love his Hidden Ability, I have to say. Well, it's fine as Oshawott, but for Samurott something more offensive would've been ideal, like Swift Swim. Oh well, I still love Oshawott. Usually I love the final evo more than the base form, but not in this case; I think Oshawott's design is perfect while Samurott's design is a bit awkward (still cool though).


[deleted]

The purest of boys


Trinkitt

Snivy for me.


MrDeedle776

Bulbasaur and Tepig. No one will ever show Tepig love, but I'll always be there for him.


DevilFlamingo

I see you're a man of culture as well, Mr. Deedle. Tepig line is my fave. :D Emboar ftw! Love the Bulba too; the Grass starters are always my fave, Gen V being the exception (not that I don't love Snivy, but rather I love Tepig more).


Micksqueeb

It made me so happy when I saw the tepig evo line cards, realizing that he is part of a family of ppl and the children in the family grow up as he evolves. Such sweet artwork.

ladystarkitten

Froakie! Hands down. I loved Greninja the moment he was revealed. Add in his move pool and Protean and my love only grew.


IndominusBurp

Charmander since day one, Scorbunny is promising tho


Euphoniumist

Cyndaquil! He will always be my favorite


KazekageGaara7

Snivy, my all time fav


Denosile

Oshawott.


lazypuca

Tododile is best


geebraprint

P O P P L I O ! but I have high hopes for Sobble


himynameis2442

Fennekin all the way. My favourite pokemon and starter


DetectiveDeletus

Treecko


katrinoryn

Gotta agree with you there


ZooBlazer

Always loved Totodile


Weibrot

For each generation: - Bulbasaur - Totodile - Used to be Torchic, now Treecko - Chimchar - Snivy - Fennekin - Popplio - hopefully Grookey, depending on its evo Overall: That price probably has to go to Popplio, Primarina turned into one of my favorite Pokemon of all time after just trying it out even tho I prefered Rowlet and Litten.


OnlySweatPants

Turtwig


DeadInsideMuffin

I like Snivy cause of how sassy and done it looks


S-O-O-S

Totodile, my first ever Pokémon.


tsewell75

My first poké game was a used copy of Gold that I played on my GameBoy SP. I picked Totodile every playthrough! (Had to start over a lot - the saves were corrupted)


Dwagonzzz

snivy


Paul_Thomo

Rowlet


KatVanJet

Cyndaquil is my boi <3


Shanjijri

Litten, I can't say no to cats.


supervegito63

Squirtle Squad


jones4thepeeps

24 years of Pokémon has gone so quick...remember playing silver as my first Pokémon game in 2003


A_Tuna_Can

Rowlet all the way


predige

Rowlet, I have never had such a useful starter, plus his final evo is pretty cool. Single most enjoyable part of sun and moon Nostalgia wants me to pick charmander as he was my first ever started in original red version


genericdrummer

I’ve used Totadile more than any others. Crystal holds a special place in my heart. It’s where I learned to clone Pokémon.


Dogtopus92

Come on guys, you all know Totodile has both the cuteness and badass attitude required to be the coolest of them!


CalebT2DM

Litten and Scorbunny


kpizzle2

Torchic


Kyros186

Torchic!


Justikyzer

Torchic.


randomo_redditor

These are so cute! Where did you get the pixelated versions of them? Would love to see other people in this style too!


MilesReturns

Going by the full evolution line, Froakie. Going by just the starter, either Squirtle or Scorbunny.


DJ-Fein

Treeko is the best. Followed by todadile and charmander


naratu19

Mudkip, Swampert was one of my best friends growing up.


LadyShanna92

Bulbasaur. First Pokemon I had and he will always be my buddy


Windlost

Froakie for me


CODEthics

Turtwig!


GianTacc

I love Mudkip, Froakie and Rowlet! However, if Sobble's evos are good, he's gonna become my new fav starter


kammy_g

Where my Litten squad at! 🐅🔥


sparky662

Fennekin!


Qorvos

Piplup into Empoleon still has a soft spot for me. The only steel/water pokemon in existance so far, and i love using steel pokemon. To this day its also one of the few (other torterra) who's typing is a one-of-a-kind, meaning its either use the starter or dont have acces to the combination. But fire pokemon have often been hard to find at all in games, at least early on, and seem more reliable as being a good starter.


BlazingInfernape2003

Chimchar gang


SaltySeas_

Grass Bulbasaur Fire Charmander Water Mudkip Among these 3... Bulbasaur


Gizmoisepic

Treeko bois


hopping_frogs

chimchar! although fennekin and popplio are soo cute too!!


MonaVanderwaal

My track record starting at 7 years old: charmander, Chikorita, torchic, piplup, oshowatt, froakie, popplio and I thiiiiink scorbunny.


Zwiebelbread

I love it that every starter is mentioned here :D


Scott2781

Snivy and sobble


NoUsernameIdeias

Mudkip, he was my first ever pokemon


OMGgamer_

Snivy, grew up with the black and white anime so I have a special bond with Snivy


sadsobble

It has to be my sad boi sobble!


samian07

Treecko


harryjack9i

Piplup durrr


Buttfuck18

Anyone who doesn’t like torchic is gay


Pan-fried-Sage

Treeko for grass, Chimchar for fire and Froakie for water


TheWaffles_

My first pokemon was piplup, so he'll forever have my love. However, Oshawott is just the cutest little thing


Pstar-Rstar

The first


DaPotatoMonster

The starters as baby pokemons are so precious. Like I would really suffer if i have to pick and keep them in their baby forms. Look at that cute Cyndaquil. Also TOTODILE AS A BABY POKEMON IS SO FREAKIN CUTEEEE. I dislike it more each time it evolves but it still looks cool ya know? *what is a chikorita...* Mudkip... my first ever starter although i always go for Fire Types. But the other 2 starters were actually really decent, everytime i replay the game i would choose a different one! Litten- My favorite animal. CHIMCHAR- my favorite pokemon’s Evolution’s line. But Gen 4 had such a good starter pokemons that easily felt like the strongest in the game - atleast when i played it as a kid. - but sadly the other 2 were in the same gen as chimchar... which is why i haven’t used them as much as i usually try out other starters. That Sassy Snivy! The original Trio... and needless to say Charmander is my favorite out of the three but the trio is just so lovely. *doesn’t mention gen 6* And now we got a wonder trio - Can’t wait to see their final Evos. But Til now, Scorbunny is what i think I’ll go with Edit: forgot to mention how SUPER CUTE Totodile is as a baby pokemon. Edit 2: Adding more flavor to my text


[deleted]

WOW nobody likes chespin.. Show some love for him pretty good tank


[deleted]

Rowlet


DarthEwok42

Charmander is a dinosaur who evolves into a dragon. I don't know how you ever top that.


RamenEater420

Squirtle because blastoise is my favorite water pokemon! but rowlet is my spirit animal it sleeps just as much as me :D


renatusrex

Totodile was my first so he’ll always have a special place in my heart ❤️


TonyThTony204

Snivy and Litten for me 💚


kerwval

My favorite is still Piplup but Torchic is cute here too


Cloudless_Sky

Based on final forms, probably Froakie. I love my edgy assassin-type characters, so Greninja's design speaks to me. I also really like Feraligatr, Empoleon and Blastoise. Water's my favourite type.


R6WiththeBoys

Piplup!


unichoro

Cyndaquil!


Padawan1993

Charmender


[deleted]

Snivy, first Pokémon I got.


BraeDrizzt23

Treeko was my first Pokémon


DevilFlamingo

Tepig all the way. I have had Emboar in every team ever since. :D Gen IV is the only one where I equally love all 3 starters and all 3 final evos. In all other gens I always have 1 favourite and the other 2 are cool. That's why I can't wait for the final evolutions of Galar's starters. They're all so cute, but who will be my favourite? Betting them Pokédollar$ on Grookey, but we'll see.


dictatortahtz

Oshawott. frickin look at him he’s so cute with his shell he’s just doing his best


beckerkl

Mudkip!


T-Eazyyy

Treecko! Such an underrated starter.


MickeyLau

Torchic and my boi sobble


[deleted]

Yes


GetKharried

Nothing can top totodile as a starter, especially if gen 2 players can remember the Mr Gatorcheeks sprite. I mean c'mon it's a walking fukin croq, an absolute unit. Rowlet is the only thing that comes close to that nostalgiafest.


StarFizzle

Chickorita! She’s so cute! (Not the best stat wise though...)


AlexThePSBoy

Fennekin


[deleted]

Yes.


SniperGabe

Oshawott! He's my first ever Pokémon, so him and his evolutions hold a special place in my heart!


pokeplayer59

Bulbasaur


Default_Dragon

Squirtle was always my favourite until Fennekin came along. Now they’re kinda tied.


dictatortahtz

no one thinks it’s Tepig :(


jamie1ucas

Totodile!! Also love Mudkip and Piplup. However excited to go for Grookey and not a water starter this time round!


SkyeWolfofDusk

Litten. I love its whole line, and I always wanted a feline based starter. Plus it reminds me of my own cats. One of my current cats has the same grouchy expression as Litten, and one who passed away in 2017 had a similar fur pattern, mainly black with some stripes. I miss her a lot, she was the sweetest cat I've ever owned and she only lived to be 9 due to a heart defect, so it's nice to have a Pokemon that reminds me of her.


Looten1313

Cyndaquil for sure


[deleted]

Got one for each type. Grass: Grookey Water: Mudkip Fire: Torchic


[deleted]

I like Squirtle, Mudkip and Oshawott (probably spelled that wrong, sorry, it's been a while since I've played gen 5) but Mudkip is probably my #1 favorite


FairyUnicornia

Poplio <3


neonjelyfish

I think if i had to choose, Fennekin!


[deleted]

My two favorite starters overall are Mudkip and Treecko (and I have an attachment to Charmander since he was my first in 1998), but if I don't take evolutions into account and we are just judging the baby versions... Litten ftw.


LoliconConnoisseur

Totodile


smolgovgay

He so cute! I wish he got Galar evos because his 2nd and final evos are so awkward.


LoliconConnoisseur

He is adorable I actually have a tattoo of him! I was realllllly hoping for a new form too :/


sbTJay

Yes


KYLO3375

Cyndaquil 😊


e_ndoubleu

Chikorita gang rise!


Sturmwolken

My mind says Grookey but my heart says Tepig.


Naesr

Piplup is the right answer


HaribansG

Mudkip chimchar and cyndaquill


ynsk112

I think you missed somebody....


BToney005

Totodile!


Dracoli_Tayuun

If I had to pick one it is Turtwig. But in order of generation it is Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil, Mudkip, Turtwig, Oshawott, Froakie, Rowlet, Sobble.


BeckQuillion89

Chimchar!!


Th4tW0rksT00

Rowlet! What a lad.


DragonwingLetsWright

Fennekin!!!


jaycobobob

Anything that's not a litten, rowlet, or popplio


beedrill330

Hard choice between Charmander and Turtwig. Love them both.


Nuigi12

Mudkip will always hold a special place in my heart, Swampy will always be my number 1


JannaDD126

EliteLemon73964

[deleted]

Lol I just realized the last one (Sobble) is my favorite, followed by the first one (Bulbasaur)


ThisDood64

Back in 2012 when I was 10, my older cousin gave me his copy of Pokémon Leaf Green for my birthday. I picked Charmander since I liked how cool Ash’s Charizard was in the anime. Ever since then I’ve always liked Charizard, but I do like the other starters too (Litten & Rowlet).


JustTrueShadow

Cyndaquil


Pinkadink88

Squirtle and Chimchar.
