Whats your favorite RBY starter?

Mine would have to be Venusaur.

15th April 2006, 5:45 AM
Squirtle is my fav

15th April 2006, 5:51 AM
Mine would be Charmander(sp?). I just love fire types, and it is the noobish one after the first two gyms. Also, only fire type avalible earlier in the game. Yay fire types.;004;

Note: Not to be rude or anything but I thought the starters were Bulbasaur, Charmander(sp?), Squirtle, Pikachu, and Eevee (Gary's in Yellow).

15th April 2006, 5:53 AM
my favorite starter is charmander because i love firetypes

15th April 2006, 6:13 AM
my favorite starter is charmander because i love firetypes
Exactly the same for me.

15th April 2006, 6:14 AM
I don't really like the Kanto starters, but I guess Venusaur. As long as it isn't in 3D, because its 3D model scares me.

15th April 2006, 6:50 AM
My favourite RBY starter is also Charmander. Because its attacks are awesome.

Charizard or Blastoise........can't say Venasaur as he doesn't appeal......sorry to all those who like him! (Try this on polls instead.)

Mine is Charmander becasue it is a Fire Type.

15th April 2006, 12:02 PM
Bulbasaur. I hate Charizard with a passion, there's loads of decent Water types, and Venusaur is the only one I half-like. I'm not keen on Kanto starters at all.

15th April 2006, 1:31 PM
Charmander, Always have liked the fire type and always will do. :)

Dark Pheonix
15th April 2006, 1:32 PM
The almighty bulbasaur pwns all!

15th April 2006, 1:42 PM
Of all nine Pokemon in the original starter lines, Kameeru is my absolute favorite. I've used the Rizaadon line more often than the Kamekkusu line, but there's something about that water type that just hooks me. I think it's the ears. XD <3

15th April 2006, 4:00 PM
I hate Charizard. So i didn't pick him.
Blastoise is annoying.

My favourite is Bulbasaur, the others just aren't the same.

The Organizer
15th April 2006, 8:57 PM
Squirtle! Its classic and its strong and its the first pokemon i ever had.

15th April 2006, 10:58 PM
It's hard to choose... Either Squirtle or Charmander, but definitely not Bulbasaur. I've always had a loathing for most Grass-types... I suppose if I really had to choose, I like Squirtle a little more.

15th April 2006, 10:59 PM
All of them aren't up to scratch anymore.........

16th April 2006, 5:49 AM
i like charmander cause he is a fire type

16th April 2006, 6:14 PM
Hmm, I found out when I bought the other games my choice was not on which type I liked best. In R/B I chose Bulbasaur, in G/S I chose Totodile, and in R/S I chose (My favorite starter of all the games so far. Fire+Fighting FTW) Torchic. I probably picked Bulbasaur because Grass attacks, imo, look a lot better (higher quality /more time put into them) than Water and Fire attacks in R/B.

Megg Lavender
16th April 2006, 9:44 PM
I really like Bulbasaur. When a Poison Pokemon uses a Poison attack on it, it won't have many effect. But, I also like Squirtle and Charmander. All the starters are so cute in their first stage... ^^

The Benmeister
16th April 2006, 9:51 PM
Bulbasaur all the way! Not Ivysaur or Venusaur (although Ivysaur's cool too, Venusaur's just odd). Well, being my favourite Pokemon overall, of course it'd be my favourite.

16th April 2006, 9:58 PM
Squirtle is my favorite of them but I like all of them

16th April 2006, 10:06 PM
Bulbasaur! Bulba has always been my fav since the begining(but Charmander and Squirtle are also cool). Bulba remains a fav of mine even when considering all three generations of starters!

17th April 2006, 12:13 AM
Mine has to be Bulbasaur. My second is Charizard.

17th April 2006, 12:44 AM
Whiel I like all the 1st gen starters & their evolutions my faves are both Charmeleon & Charizard. They just both look so badass.

17th April 2006, 6:47 AM
I love Charmeleon. He's not overrated, and he looks really cool.

19th April 2006, 7:18 AM
I always chose Charmander as my starter in R/B. It was the cutest and is one of my favorites.

20th April 2006, 3:56 AM
Charmander. I did choose him because while squirtle looked cool enough, Charmander was better at first glance, and because I liked fire more then water or grass. He did end up being my favourite, if not for anything else, then for the fact that he was the hardest to use against Brock. But of course, that made the sense of beating your first gym so much more rewarding after trying so many times and hatching up a good strategy. I wonder how it was for the other starter-choosers not have had that same feelnig....

20th April 2006, 4:06 AM
squirtal is mine but i like totodile more than any of them!

20th April 2006, 4:16 AM
Charmander all the way. I think that he is the best one

Ben Kenobi
21st April 2006, 12:57 AM
Charmander despite the fact that Water-types are my favourite.

21st April 2006, 5:44 PM
My favourite starter has to be Charmander, but of the three's final evolution I like Blastoise the best, so some of the time I pick Squirtle.

Umi Mizuno
21st April 2006, 5:46 PM
My favorite would be Squirtle. There was something about it I liked more then Charmander and Bulbasaur.

Mirai Mirai
23rd April 2006, 12:45 AM
Charmander or Squirtle. It's a tie.

23rd April 2006, 1:01 AM
Bulbasaur here. It has such fun moves compared to the other two starters.

Black Marauder
23rd April 2006, 1:53 PM
Charmander [not biased -_-]. He's Fire types, plus he's cute. Charizard rocks too.

Scizor King
23rd April 2006, 7:38 PM
Charmander plz.

Flame Haze SnS
25th April 2006, 8:56 AM
I started out with Charmander, because I wanted to get Charizard as the power in my team.

25th April 2006, 1:47 PM
I liked bulbasaur, but i didn;t like Venusaur that much because i found him to be too weak for my liking. So in the end i would have to say Charmander as it evolves into Charizard. Squirtle is not that bad either.

Prof. 9
3rd May 2006, 9:48 AM
Squirtle is cool, Charmander also. Bulbasaur stinks.

3rd May 2006, 10:04 AM
don't like venasaur so bulbasaur is last

what do you mean the kanto starters aren't that good i think there way better thrn hoenn

Blaziken Ruler
3rd May 2006, 10:14 AM
Charmander all teh way.

Jirachi Legend
3rd May 2006, 12:07 PM
I've always chosen Bulbasaur. Squirtle and Charmander are both very cool too; Kanto starters are my favourite.

Fallen Guardian
4th May 2006, 6:54 AM
For RBY my favorite is Bulbasaur because it was the first Pokemon I ever used. In fact I remember the day I got the game. I was in the car and I opened it and started playing. I saw Bulba and knew that he was cool.

I love nostalgia.

4th May 2006, 7:47 AM
Mine would have to be Charmander, after all, fire types are one of my favorites. Despite the fact that my journey to beat the first two Gyms was a bit difficult with a fire type, I still prefer Charizard to Venusaur and Blastoise anyday.

4th May 2006, 8:14 AM
I chose Charmander thinking it would be the best Pokemon on my Red version. I loved Charmeleon but once it evolved into Charizard...I got pretty freaked out (pretty ugly dragon imo). Still, I love Charmander as it was my first Pokemon ever. <3

Nintendo Master
6th May 2006, 9:03 PM
Err... I like them all equally but if I had to choose, it would be Blastoise.

6th May 2006, 11:32 PM
Blastiose, since i have used it in many of my R/B/Y teams.

6th May 2006, 11:39 PM
I like Bulbasuar.I always ;ike it ever since I first saw that episdoe in which Ash catched one.Also,I like Grass types.

7th May 2006, 6:48 PM
First (proper) post - see newbie section for my introduction and comments. Look for 'DJ N'.

My favourite is Charmander. Though it makes the 1st gym harder, when it evolves into Charizard it can learn Earthquake through using the TM, an effective counter to many of it's weaknesses. Fly - though an HM - is also useful with its STAB on Charizard, if you have the yellow version. It also learns slash, another great move. My movelist for it would be:

8th May 2006, 12:16 PM
Squirtle, but i love them all :P

10th May 2006, 8:42 AM
Even though I think its weak to pick bulbasaur as your starter, I have to say that in logic, Bulbasaur is the best pick. You can get plenty of water and fire types, but the Bulbasaur line is unique. It is the only one that is really grass with razor leaf and everything.

11th May 2006, 6:07 AM
Mine is totally Squirtle, cute and powerful.

13th May 2006, 2:24 AM
I love 'em all, but I've always loved Charmander, it used to be my most favourite pokemon when I was little.

13th May 2006, 2:24 AM
Definately Charmander. When my father first got me Blue, it was the first Pkmn I ever got. It will always have a special place in my heart...kinda.

15th May 2006, 3:26 AM
My favorite is squirtle.

16th May 2006, 2:24 AM
Espically the Green sprite, since I just got it, and it is so awesome!
Plus, it evolves into Charizard :)

16th May 2006, 2:33 AM
My favorite is Squirtle.

20th May 2006, 2:58 AM
1. Squirtle
2. Bulbasaur
3. Pikachu
4. Charmander - - only because it becomes Charizard.

27th May 2006, 2:47 PM
squirtle, because I love water pokemon ^^

28th May 2006, 3:15 AM
My favorite starter is charmander since i like fire types

28th May 2006, 3:20 AM
My favourite starter is Bulbasaur since I've always liked pok'emon that can cause status problems. Go Bulbasaur!

Blaziken Trainer
28th May 2006, 3:59 AM
I've always liked Totodile and Torchic but now I would have to say Mudkip...

Milotic Wave
28th May 2006, 4:52 AM
squirtle is so awesome
until he evolves

28th May 2006, 9:50 AM
Mine would be Charmander(sp?). I just love fire types, and it is the noobish one after the first two gyms. Also, only fire type avalible earlier in the game. Yay fire types.;004;

Note: Not to be rude or anything but I thought the starters were Bulbasaur, Charmander(sp?), Squirtle, Pikachu, and Eevee (Gary's in Yellow).
fire pokemon suck

Twilit Dragoon
28th May 2006, 12:56 PM
I like Charmander because it was the first Pokemon that I had owned. Bulbasaur is second and Squirtle is third.

28th May 2006, 10:38 PM
Bulbasaur. Easy to raise.

29th May 2006, 6:32 PM
I go for Charmander, usually, as he evolves into the best looking Dragon-based Pokemon in the game. I also like Fire types.

Herb Master
30th May 2006, 4:36 AM
Squirtle is awesome!!!

Aoba Tadamichi
30th May 2006, 4:10 PM
Squirtle is my favourite. I find it most balanced out of all starters.

Mr. Mime
30th May 2006, 9:35 PM
I like Charmander and Squirtle the most, I chose Charmander in Red, and Squirtle in Blue. Bulbasaur, I have him in my Yellow.

8th June 2006, 11:18 AM
Charmender, I have a thing for Fire starters. ^^;;

8th June 2006, 2:00 PM
charmander it's my all time favorite pokemon

8th June 2006, 2:36 PM
my all time favorite is tododile ;)

8th June 2006, 6:05 PM
Ooh, that's a tough one! (I always change my mind in the game, and restart it five minutes in)... I like charizard, because it's a dragon (and it's a starter that can learn "fly", which I find beyond handy)... I like Ivysaur (but not the other two) just because it looks neat, and that "leech seed" is a neat attack that I have a bad habit of using too often... Of the squirtle "chain", wartortle is my favorite, but I LOVE all of 'em... unfortunately, I hardly ever pick it because I know I'll want some -other- water pokemon later (starme, golduck, seadra, you name it...)...

So... the most -logical- choice I could make would be Charmander for the Charizard... But I never pick the same one if I get different versions. (so, if I had yellow, I'd take charmander - then if I had blue, I couldn't get charmander, so I'd probably take one of the other two)

Mime Jr
8th June 2006, 10:44 PM
Charmander, even though its not a very wise choice to do in Red/Blue/Yellow.

11th June 2006, 2:43 AM
My fave RBY starter is my dear sweet Serge, my Pikachu. My pikachu never lets me down. Out of the other 3, I'd say Charmander.I like it like that and it evolves into Charizard, one of my best pokemon. Why didn't anyone else pick Pikachu?!

12th June 2006, 1:47 AM
I like Blastoise. Defensive and powerful at the same time. Venusaur is just Plain ugly and Charizard is weak and overused.

Chaotic Houndoom
12th June 2006, 1:48 AM
Bulbasaur. Its so cute! ^^

12th June 2006, 2:11 AM
Charmander/Charmeleon/Charzard is my favourite because i always liked the fire starters

12th June 2006, 4:29 AM
Charmander is my favorite starter considering it was my first. Even though it later on evolves into Charizard and gets the Rock type as a really bad weakness, I still like it the most.

grim reaper
15th June 2006, 9:41 AM
mine is blastose

silver girl
16th June 2006, 1:01 PM
I'm a great dragon and fire fan, so Charmander + evos. of course!

16th June 2006, 3:09 PM
I am going for the Fire types. Altough I usualy also tend to start with Grass types... >_>

Angelic Elf Ivy
16th June 2006, 3:44 PM
Squirtil (sp?).
He's an easy starter to train, and I'm a lazy trainer.

16th June 2006, 3:47 PM
The squirtle line, yay 4 water types!! ;009; yay!

16th June 2006, 9:00 PM
Well, I like Charmander, but lately Squirtle has been appealing to me.

16th June 2006, 9:05 PM
I like Squirtle and Charmander.

17th June 2006, 1:10 PM
pikachu although it is hard to beat brock pikachu is my favourite starter

Flaming Nidoking
17th June 2006, 3:58 PM
i like charmander, its like the strongest :D ( at least i think it is)

Virtual Chatot
17th June 2006, 4:37 PM
Charmander is, look on sppf R/B/Y walkthrough, it says baulbasaur is the easiest, squirtle is the middle, and charmadner is the harderst.

But my favorite would have to be Baulbasaur, it gives a fast access point to get me to celedon so that I can get an eevee, oh how I wish I could of started out with an eevee, oh wait I did :D

( good ol' gameshark )

17th June 2006, 5:15 PM
1. Pikachu
2. Charmander
3. Squirtle
4. Bulbasaur (... I spelled his name right?)

17th June 2006, 8:14 PM
1. Charmander
2. Squirtle
3. pikachu
4. Bulbasaur

Prof. 9
17th June 2006, 8:32 PM
First place Squirtle, because Blastoise is my favorite Pokémon, then Charmander, and Bulbasaur? Please don't make me say what I really think.

19th June 2006, 8:49 AM
UUUUUUhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ;001; Bulbasaur. He was awesome, Have some ripe moves, and He sliced out most of the competition from the first few Gym Leaders.

22nd June 2006, 10:18 AM
Charmander hands down. I've never used Bulbasaur, and I reallu dislike the Squirtle line. The Charmander family always manages to get me through the game easily.

22nd June 2006, 6:31 PM
squirtle,its ,my favourite pokemon

22nd June 2006, 10:18 PM
Charzard is my favorite

23rd June 2006, 2:55 AM
I actually chose Charmander because Charizard was on the cartridge, but I liked him better than the others.

24th June 2006, 11:02 AM
;004;charmander all the way! i love fire types!:D

28th June 2006, 12:35 AM
Probably blastoides, because I had the most success with him.

28th June 2006, 8:13 AM
Charmander. It was my first starter.


28th June 2006, 12:14 PM
I aways liked Squirtle 0_0 Think its cute. And its pretty strong when you can get it to envolve. Wowa 0_0 I didn't know there was a lot of people who liked Charmander ^^:;

30th June 2006, 5:27 AM
Mine is Charmander

30th June 2006, 7:23 AM
My favorite starter is Bulbasaur, My fave 2nd evo. starter is Charmeleon(sp), and my fave 3rd evo. starter and overall fav is Blastoise...

1st July 2006, 2:56 AM
Charmander ! that cute little thing who becomes a ferocious cute Dragon

Sapphire Phoenix
5th July 2006, 1:07 AM
Charmander he was my first starter and he turns into one of my favorite pokemon of all time, Chaizard!!!

5th July 2006, 3:36 AM
squirtle deffinetly
blastoise is one of my favorites

5th July 2006, 4:23 AM
My favorite is Squirtle

9th July 2006, 9:47 AM
Charmander, the only good looking one.

9th July 2006, 9:26 PM
I always loved Squirtle. :)

~Vodka Duck~
10th July 2006, 1:13 PM
Charmanda for sure.

Shiny Rokon
10th July 2006, 1:46 PM
Squirtle, not only is it the best stats wise, but also its just adorable, wartortle looks so cool and blastoise is is just perfect. I think the original starters look better than the new ones, maybe because they are more plain and realistic to animals?

10th July 2006, 1:53 PM

10th July 2006, 1:55 PM

10th July 2006, 3:20 PM
Bulbasaur: He was my first Pokemon ever, and evolves into Venusaur (my fave Pokemon).

10th July 2006, 6:08 PM
;004; Charmander, because it may start off bad, but by the end of the game, it is one of the most powerful Pokčmon, you can own. It can also fly when it is a ;006; Charizard, so it saves you having to get a Flying Pokčmon.

10th July 2006, 6:24 PM
Charmander. It's so cute and it evolves into Charizard at the end! Go Charizard!

ground tamer
10th July 2006, 6:29 PM
Charmander not only because it was a fire type and the only fire type available till the fourth badge, but because it was the coolest looking one out of the three starters.;004;

10th July 2006, 7:00 PM
My Faves were Charmander and Squirtle, because Charizard is Mc Awesome, and Squirtle was the most usefull through out the game.

10th July 2006, 7:14 PM
Squirtle. I used to like Charmander, until I learned how much better Squirtle is IMO. Even though Charizard and Venusaur easily outclass Blastoise.

10th July 2006, 7:38 PM
Definitely Bulbasaur, Venusaur is an awesome Pogey.

10th July 2006, 7:53 PM

11th July 2006, 5:31 AM
Charmander! Charizard is easily my favorite pokemon ever!

RPG Maker
11th July 2006, 9:06 AM
I love all three, I chose Charmander as my 'very' first Pokemon, and Bulbasaur is one of my favorites. Blah, so hard to choose but I have to say Charmander.

Hyper Shadow
11th July 2006, 6:17 PM
charmander! I love that little lizard. why you might ask because lizards are one of my favorite animals.

15th July 2006, 8:51 PM
squritle! he looks good in his sunglasses

15th July 2006, 11:58 PM
Charmander. Even though my first ever pokemon in Red was Bulbasaur I only picked it because I heard it was best for the first few gyms. Charmander was, is and always will be the best starter ever, largely due to Charizard being the most kickass pokemon around.

16th July 2006, 12:50 AM
BLASTOISE!!! He's a android turtle how cool is that?Venusaur is a plant dinosaur so thats cool too.Though I dispise charizard I have to say he's the best battler out of them all.But still, no matter how out classed my favorite starter will always be Blastoise!

16th July 2006, 1:06 AM
squirtle, and the squirtle squad!

16th July 2006, 1:41 AM
Pikachu! He counts, right? If not, Charmander.

16th July 2006, 10:36 PM
I'd say Pikachu, but I'll pick from the original starters, too.

Charmander, because he's well-rounded and has few weaknesses, and his evolved forms are pretty powerful if you spend a lot of time on them. The only difficulty I had was fighting Misty, but if you catch a grass Pokemon and train them up well, it's easy to defeat her team.

charizard! no competition my fave pokemon ever!

Mr. Fresh
13th August 2008, 11:54 AM
Charmander, no starter quite compares to Charizard. More flying types are needed.

13th August 2008, 11:57 AM
SQUIRTLE!! is the cutest ever!! and the best. i love squirtle and all his evo's bulbasuar...is cute, and charmander is okish. personally my fav is squirtle.

16th August 2008, 12:33 PM
charmansder would be my first option for it's end evolution.

King Lawliet
16th August 2008, 5:44 PM
Squirtle, Mainly because he was the coolest out of the starters in the anime and also it was my first pkmn

17th August 2008, 3:50 AM
Charmander...I always just liked fire types

19th August 2008, 1:15 AM

19th August 2008, 1:17 AM
I used to love Charizard but now I like Blastoise.

22nd August 2008, 6:59 AM
Mmmm I'd have to say Bulbasaur. He was my first ever Pokemon in my GBC Red version :)

Pinata Panda
22nd August 2008, 7:14 AM

He is my favorite got to love turtles

22nd August 2008, 9:46 AM
squirtle. i cant get over how cute that little turtle is.

The Unknown Twinkie
23rd August 2008, 6:36 AM
Mine is charmander becuse he is stronger then the rest of the starter

right flame

;004; charm

*laugh* you tell them*hugs flame*

23rd August 2008, 8:27 AM
Pikachu is and will always be my favourite Pokemon from 1st gen. Thank gosh it's a starter

24th August 2008, 1:38 AM
I think Pikachu is the best one.
My second favorite one is Charmander.
I think it looks pretty cool. But I still like Pikachu more becuase it has better attacks.

25th August 2008, 5:16 PM
Pikachu!!! Of course!!! It's so freaking adorable!

My second favorite starter would be Squirtle.

27th August 2008, 12:26 PM
I like all of them, except for Bulbasaur. -_- My most fave in the list is Squirtle.

1st September 2008, 4:18 PM
Pikachu is easily my favorite, second would be squirtle

2nd September 2008, 1:52 AM
Bulbasaur. Who wouldn't like a blue monster with a plant growing on it's back. Bulbasaur also has the best stats of the 3 'type' starters, I'm not sure about Pikachu though... When Bulbasaur finally reaches Venasaur, it goes from 'cute and happy' to a 'tank-a-tron'. Bulbasaur is the best starter in my opinion, only being eclipsed by Turtwig and Mudkipz in the later generations.

Hmm, either Charmander, mostly for its Charizard evolution, which is my fave Pokemon :D or Pikachu, just because I adore how cute it is.

Charizard, always liked fire type pokemon, always pick the fire type when it comes to choosing my starter pokemon (charmander, torchic...)

Charmander, as I love Fire types. Though Bulbasaur is starting to grow on me.


24th September 2008, 3:46 PM
Char, my Charmander :)

Dark Arceus
25th September 2008, 6:41 PM
At the moment, Blastoise, although it has been Charizard.

26th September 2008, 3:24 AM
1st stage:bulbasaur. always been cute.
2nd stage: wartortle. ivysaur and charmeleon are ugly.
final stage: chardizard. for he can learn earthquake :P

Squirtle, definitely. I've always loved the water starters.

1st October 2008, 3:27 PM
Defnitely going with Charmander, Charizard is just so awesome. Fire types being rare to find is also a big factor.

1st October 2008, 4:22 PM
Bulbasaur, I love to pick the grass type starter.

2nd October 2008, 5:18 AM
I love Charmander, but Squirtle is the easiest to get through the game with.

2nd October 2008, 8:41 AM
Charmander. He was my favorite pokemon when I was little. ;__;

2nd October 2008, 9:35 AM
Squirtle for me. I love Blastoise!

2nd October 2008, 9:43 AM
charmander beacause its the closest thing to a dragon in the first gen besides dragonite. lol

Blue Snover
2nd October 2008, 3:35 PM
Bulbasaur, he was the best.

2nd October 2008, 9:39 PM
charmander! after you managed to beat the first 2 gyms, which wasn't very hard since you just embered brock and slashed misty, charizard was the most versatile starter evo imo, plus he also looked the coolest XD.

2nd October 2008, 10:24 PM
Charmander! It was the cutest and the best!

2nd October 2008, 11:53 PM
My favorite starter is all of them!that is because they are cool but in different ways.

3rd October 2008, 3:34 AM
For me, it's Charmander. Charizard is one of my favorite pokemon and he PWNS all the way ;]

4th October 2008, 12:40 PM

11th October 2008, 11:04 AM
Squirtle was just too cute xD

I remember naming it Bubbles lol

Plus I have a fetish for blue :p

Charmander was a close second ^^

11th October 2008, 9:27 PM
Squirtle forever.

12th October 2008, 4:34 PM
Squirtle for sure, maybe it's because I love water type Pokemon

20th October 2008, 1:58 AM
My favorite starter is Blastoise.
My other favorite is Venasaur.
My my least favorite is Charizard.

20th October 2008, 8:22 AM
My favourites are Squirtle and Evo's
second fave being Charmander
My Least favourite is Bulbasaur

20th October 2008, 4:38 PM
Charmander. Fire starters always are my favorites

21st October 2008, 5:17 PM
I like charmander as a starter in the first generation. After the awesome starters in Kanto and Johto, I didn't like the starters for Hoenn and Sinnoh very much.

23rd October 2008, 2:13 AM

24th October 2008, 3:40 PM
Charmander is my favorite starter on R/B/Y, fire starters rule, even though I like water types a little more.

24th October 2008, 6:40 PM
Bulbasaur. Just gotta love the cute lil' guy.

30th October 2008, 2:00 PM
squirtle is the best starter an a awsome pokemon.

Killer Grunt
31st October 2008, 1:31 AM
Back then i think i liked charmander the best but now i like Bulbasaur the most.

31st October 2008, 10:31 AM
Squirtle all the way :D

surfer treecko
31st October 2008, 12:52 PM
Bilbasaur. He was always with me to the end.

31st October 2008, 4:47 PM
Bulbasaur here. Leech Seed usually helps me catch most of those wild monsters, except Onix which had to get out from the ball just to die.

31st October 2008, 11:27 PM
Venusaur, but battle-wise he was terrible, so Charizard.

Focus Aipom
31st October 2008, 11:28 PM
I always liked charmander

1st November 2008, 4:27 AM
my favorites are all the fire type starters from all generations

1st November 2008, 5:47 AM
i liked Blastoise and Charizard. I hated Venusaur and Pikachu, but i dont know why

Psychic master Iatos
4th November 2008, 5:04 AM
Hmm...I'd have to with squirtle. I mean, I love charmander too, but ever since yellow, that was my favorite kantomon. AH, so many memories...

10th November 2008, 9:03 AM
My favorite is definitely the Squirtle line!
Squirtle is the cute one, Blastoise is the cool, tankish behemoth, and Wartortle has both of their best qualities (cute but tough).

Dragon Chimchar
16th November 2008, 10:33 AM
cuz it was my first ever Pokemon

17th November 2008, 2:58 AM
Charizard, hands down. He was a beast.

17th November 2008, 3:01 AM
I like Charmander, cute, Charmeleon, worthy and Charizard, a manly strong beast.

17th November 2008, 11:08 PM
My favorite starter was Squirtle but i though Bulbasaur was the most effective for the game in general

25th November 2008, 7:13 AM
I love my Fire Types so I'm going to have to say Charmander. It was such a cutie. :)

Arceus Master
25th November 2008, 3:05 PM
Charmander, even though he's increasingly difficult to use on the first two gyms, but after that, it's smooth sailing--for the most part.

Amazing Red
25th November 2008, 11:41 PM
Charmander. Because the whole evolution line of charmander is awesome.

26th November 2008, 1:13 AM
For me it's a tie between Blastiose and Charizard, I just hate Venasaur's limited movepool. I like Blastoise's beefy defenses, but Charizard is a great sweeper, so it's Blastoise/Charizard for me

Katya Ivanova
26th November 2008, 9:10 AM
blastoise, for sure; always got me through the game easier with him on my team, plus; he looks awesome. ^_~

26th November 2008, 9:27 PM
Always has been Charmander. Always will be.

"Freak" owns
30th November 2008, 9:30 AM
charmander as it turned in to a mean fire breathing machine

1st December 2008, 1:41 PM
Charizard, and second place would be Blastoise.

1st December 2008, 4:31 PM
Squirtle easily, though I have done R/B/Y games with all three.

1st December 2008, 7:09 PM
Charmander. Charizard is such a beast, type disadvantages don't even come into it, Charizard can torch rock and water pokemon if you train him effectively.

Banana Bloodplanet
2nd December 2008, 2:33 AM
Charmander. I like all three of them, but I've become very attatched towards Charmander, as it was the first Pokemon I ever owned (and the only Pokemon I ever bothered to train in R/B).

5th December 2008, 7:27 AM
pikachu is the best

6th December 2008, 12:21 AM
Squirtle. ^.^

Though, Charmander wasn't that bad.

Volcanic Murk
6th December 2008, 12:38 AM
My favorite starter is Squirtle, but I picked Charmander in Leaf Green. But a few years passed, and my opinion changed. I did too much and made a lot of trades to restart. (I didn't have the original 1st generation games).

The Tail
8th December 2008, 11:49 AM
Wartortle, I just like them for some reason.

8th December 2008, 12:00 PM
Pikachu and Squirtle. It's fun to have a Pokemon stalking you :)

9th December 2008, 4:11 AM
I know i've said this before but I don't know where....

Bulbasaur because Charander is too popular and Squirtle is meh.

11th December 2008, 1:56 AM
charmander,just because i like the challenge

24th December 2008, 4:40 AM
My favorite starter:

Charmander, always been charmander because it evolves into charizard

24th December 2008, 5:09 AM
charmander is always the best even though hes weak against the first two gyms. i can always skip brock and use a pikachu on misty so im good

24th December 2008, 5:15 AM

29th December 2008, 2:01 PM
I have to say Charmander (for right now, when he Evolves I might change my mind) Because he can evolve to a dragon after his second evolution and European dragons are cool.

31st December 2008, 8:31 PM
My Favorite RBY Starter Is Charmander ;004;

1st January 2009, 2:12 PM
In yellow i wanted the eevee then i got Annoyed when gary took it >:(

1st January 2009, 8:48 PM
oh well, at least you get one from pokemon mansion!

7th January 2009, 9:52 PM
Oddly,my favorite starter in the first generation is Squirtle.
It's my 3rd favorite of the Kanto starters,but for some strange reason I like it in the original games..In the remakes however..

8th January 2009, 8:33 AM
my fave is charmander
very useful later in the game.

8th January 2009, 4:34 PM
Would have to say Charmander.

Not only does it's final evolution look utterly awesome, but it's speed and attacking power (not to mention it being able to fly and not needing a flying type) make it utterly the BEST starter out there!!

Typhlosion Trainer
9th January 2009, 6:23 AM
I say Charmander.

9th January 2009, 8:07 AM
Charmander is the best!

9th January 2009, 8:41 AM
My favorite is Gary's Eevee he gets in Yellow. Too bad you can't get it :(

Of the ones you CAN pick, I would probably say Charmander. I've never actually used a Blastoise, but if I did I think I would like it, too. I like water types I guess.

17th January 2009, 11:39 AM
Charmander is the best because I love Charizard :)

Tri hawk
19th January 2009, 4:07 PM
Ivysaur. It was my first evolution. I never did like Venusaur though.

20th January 2009, 8:38 PM
Charmander <3

24th January 2009, 11:33 AM
Definitely Charmander. I love Fire-types so much.

24th January 2009, 11:36 AM
I always loved Charmander. But I have to say I once picked Bulbasaur.

Regreted it.

24th January 2009, 3:18 PM
Squirtle or Charmander. Bulbasaur just doesn't appeal to me too much...

I like Pokemon (...)
26th January 2009, 12:13 AM
Charizard. I love dragons (or draconic figures).

26th January 2009, 8:11 PM
I like Squirtle, but Charmander's pretty cool as well.

Defy gravity!

26th January 2009, 9:10 PM
Squirtle would have to be mine. I'm just a huge fan of turtles. ^^'

27th January 2009, 10:28 AM
Squirtle. I always chose that tiny turtle even if it gave me a hard time in the second gym.
