Treecko! Such a cool lad!
Yup Treecko, Grovyle and Sceptile are my absolute favourites
Hamilton, he's just really handsome
Wow that’s a pretty obscure reference
I think I'll call him Hamilton!
Hahaha is it from the granny video?
Yes indeed. Classic
I understand that reference
I name all my charmanders Hamilton now after I saw that video lol
Nothing will ever top bulbasaur
Number one in the Pokédex, number one in my heart
*Turtwig and rowlet want to know your location*
Same place as always. In the champions seat at the pokemon league
This is the only correct answer
Pretty obvious tho
Ah a man of culture I see
That's the correct answer.
I can't even tell why, I just really like it for some reason.
Cause it’s got the cutest eyes ever?
piplup❤️ my first ever Pokemon
totodile all the way
My first ever Pokémon 😊
All gen 2 starters hold a special place in my heart
Squirtle for me.
Snivy. Evolution line was magnificent
Charmander for me, he was my first Pokémon way back when I was just a kid playing Pokémon red on my game boy color.
Never played beyond Gen 4 so...
Snivy and Sobble got favorite at first sight, though.
So you're getting back into it now?
Yepp, got the Shield version (friend got Sword) and I'll pick Sobble for sure.
Same on all accounts lol
Cyndaquil, great memories with that little guy
If I had to choose .... fennekin, maybe piplup
Bulbasaur but I really can't wait for Grookey.
Froakie is amazing.
Gotta say Chimchar man.
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.
My boy oshawott.
Cyndaquil will always hold a special place in my heart.
Piplup. Always has been, always will be.
As an asian with asian eyes, i totally relate to cyndaquil and hes my fav
Torchic all the way
Was scrolling for this cause blazekin is just the most OP OG final evo.
finally some freaking torchic love had to scroll all the way down for it
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
Let’s get some love for my boy Oshawott
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).
The purest of boys
Snivy for me.
Bulbasaur and Tepig. No one will ever show Tepig love, but I'll always be there for him.
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).
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.
Froakie! Hands down. I loved Greninja the moment he was revealed. Add in his move pool and Protean and my love only grew.
Charmander since day one, Scorbunny is promising tho
Cyndaquil! He will always be my favorite
Snivy, my all time fav
Tododile is best
P O P P L I O ! but I have high hopes for Sobble
Fennekin all the way. My favourite pokemon and starter
Gotta agree with you there
Always loved Totodile
For each generation:
- Used to be Torchic, now Treecko
- hopefully Grookey, depending on its evo
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.
I like Snivy cause of how sassy and done it looks
Totodile, my first ever Pokémon.
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)
Cyndaquil is my boi <3
Litten, I can't say no to cats.
24 years of Pokémon has gone so quick...remember playing silver as my first Pokémon game in 2003
Rowlet all the way
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
I’ve used Totadile more than any others. Crystal holds a special place in my heart. It’s where I learned to clone Pokémon.
Come on guys, you all know Totodile has both the cuteness and badass attitude required to be the coolest of them!
Litten and Scorbunny
These are so cute! Where did you get the pixelated versions of them? Would love to see other people in this style too!
Going by the full evolution line, Froakie.
Going by just the starter, either Squirtle or Scorbunny.
Treeko is the best. Followed by todadile and charmander
Mudkip, Swampert was one of my best friends growing up.
Bulbasaur. First Pokemon I had and he will always be my buddy
Froakie for me
I love Mudkip, Froakie and Rowlet! However, if Sobble's evos are good, he's gonna become my new fav starter
Where my Litten squad at! 🐅🔥
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.
Among these 3...
chimchar! although fennekin and popplio are soo cute too!!
My track record starting at 7 years old: charmander, Chikorita, torchic, piplup, oshowatt, froakie, popplio and I thiiiiink scorbunny.
I love it that every starter is mentioned here :D
Snivy and sobble
Mudkip, he was my first ever pokemon
Snivy, grew up with the black and white anime so I have a special bond with Snivy
It has to be my sad boi sobble!
Anyone who doesn’t like torchic is gay
Treeko for grass, Chimchar for fire and Froakie for water
My first pokemon was piplup, so he'll forever have my love. However, Oshawott is just the cutest little thing
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
WOW nobody likes chespin.. Show some love for him pretty good tank
Charmander is a dinosaur who evolves into a dragon. I don't know how you ever top that.
Squirtle because blastoise is my favorite water pokemon! but rowlet is my spirit animal it sleeps just as much as me :D
Totodile was my first so he’ll always have a special place in my heart ❤️
Snivy and Litten for me 💚
My favorite is still Piplup but Torchic is cute here too
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.
Snivy, first Pokémon I got.
Treeko was my first Pokémon
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.
Oshawott. frickin look at him he’s so cute with his shell he’s just doing his best
Treecko! Such an underrated starter.
Torchic and my boi sobble
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.
Chickorita! She’s so cute! (Not the best stat wise though...)
Oshawott! He's my first ever Pokémon, so him and his evolutions hold a special place in my heart!
Squirtle was always my favourite until Fennekin came along. Now they’re kinda tied.
no one thinks it’s Tepig :(
Totodile!! Also love Mudkip and Piplup. However excited to go for Grookey and not a water starter this time round!
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.
Cyndaquil for sure
Got one for each type. Grass: Grookey
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
I think if i had to choose, Fennekin!
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.
He so cute! I wish he got Galar evos because his 2nd and final evos are so awkward.
He is adorable I actually have a tattoo of him! I was realllllly hoping for a new form too :/
Chikorita gang rise!
My mind says Grookey but my heart says Tepig.
Piplup is the right answer
Mudkip chimchar and cyndaquill
I think you missed somebody....
If I had to pick one it is Turtwig. But in order of generation it is Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil, Mudkip, Turtwig, Oshawott, Froakie, Rowlet, Sobble.
Rowlet! What a lad.
Anything that's not a litten, rowlet, or popplio
Hard choice between Charmander and Turtwig. Love them both.
Mudkip will always hold a special place in my heart, Swampy will always be my number 1
Rowlet/sobble .. I think idk this is hard bc I wanna say bulba too and fennekin.. ugh
Fire and grass are best
It's a tie between Bulbasaur and Sobble
Either Mudkip torterra totodile snivy or rowlet
Mudkip,its my favorite Pokémon
Lol I just realized the last one (Sobble) is my favorite, followed by the first one (Bulbasaur)
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).
Squirtle and Chimchar.
Popplio. Such a cutie
Treecko it is 😍
For me it is a tough decision between Torchic, or Frokie
Rowlet and frokie
Chimchar, he was my first pokemon In pokemon platinum and infernape is my favourite pokemon
My other favourite starters are Treekco and Oshawott
Chikorita!!! just y’all wait till it gets a mega/gigantamax form
Totodile has a special place in my heart
