    Snivy for sure in the White game I will be buying.
    Oshawott if I get Black or any eventual third version.

    I generally go with a Grass starter in one version (sometimes for early type advantage, eg Bulbasaur, and sometimes just for looks). In Snivy's case I think its mostly a looks thing cause it's the line that I think looks the coolest, although it's got some competition in Oshawott.

    Well I have my team set so i'm choosing Tepig. I need the fighting type and Emboar looks cooler than Serperior and Samurott IMO. Although i'm gonna try and get an Oshawott on GTS for a Tepig egg.

    Black: Tepig, so I can keep my Trick Room team

    White: Oshawott, One of the few decent water types in B&W that I like

    I'm choosing Oshawott for my first game in White and Tepig for my first game in Black.

    I love all three starters, but there are a lot of viable grass types I can use in the game (Leavanny and Maractus are two of my favorite Grass-types ever), and I will eventually use Snivy in a future restart of one of my games (I can't even count how many times I've restarted my game on Diamond, Platinum, and HeartGold...).

    Despite liking all three starters, my favorite is Oshawott, so that's where my vote goes.

    Snivy, since it's cute. And a grass type. And a snake. It's evolution looks wonderful. Basically, it's my kind of Pokémon.

    My brother's going with Oshawott. Galileo and Poseidon shall... do... something.

    I'm still not a hundred percent sure! D: I was planning to pick Snivy, but the choice is still so hard. I might end up choosing Tepig instead! And I like Oshawott too! D:

    Oshawott, as I'm a Water-type fan and neither Snivy nor Tepig particularly appeal to me. But I'm not really gonna use Oshawott a whole lot, I rarely use the starters anyway.

    The future surrounds us.

    Let us begin.

    Usually I pick the fire type, but I am sooooo sick of the Fire-Fighting double type, that this time I think I'm getting Oshawott. However, two of my cousins are getting the game too, one is already choosing Snivy, and I need to convince the other to get Tepig XD

    I will choose Oshawott because I like it and I like Samurott a lot. My second choice would be Snivy. I just don't like Tepig and his evolutions. Besides that I like the other Grass and Fire Pokemon more than the starters (Lilligant and Leavanny-Candelure, Victini, Simisear, Heatmor and Volcarona). And this is why I choose Oshawott as starter

    I usually choose grass starters for a new region;

    Gold: Chikorita
    Ruby: Treecko
    Leaf Green: Bulbasaur
    Pearl: Turtwig
    Platinum: Chimchar
    Soul Silver: Cyndaquil
    Black: Snivy

    So I choose grass starters for regions I haven't previously visited and fire-types for the remakes. Also, Snivy has a great design.

    Currently undecided. I like Snivy but there are so many grass Pokémon i like more, Lilligant, Whimsicott, Sawsbuck, so i think Snivy is ruled out. Same with Oshawott, there are a few water Pokémon i would like to try out more than i would like to have him. However, i really do not like Tepig evolutions so.., i'll probably end up with Oshawott/Snivy to start then just switch him/her out when i can catch a water/grass Pokémon i want to use.

    I agree completely with this statement.

    I'm definitely picking Oshawott just because when I first saw him, I thought he was the ugliest starter I'd ever seen, but he's grown on me and now I think he's adorable, and the fact that I've almost always picked the Fire Starter, I wanna switch it up a bit this generation. Oh, and I love the look of him and his evo's and I think that I could get the best party with him and Pansear.

    Anyways, I'm picking Oshawaott, and his name shall be Oscar
    I don't use uber Pokemon , I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    White-Oshawott. Surprisingly it's my favorite out of the three(Which has always been the Fire type), although they are pretty much near the same level for me(In terms of liking them) Oshawott is just a little higher. Also, I want a Water type with me and I think Oshawott is the best for that job.

    Black-I'll use Snivy and Tepig just for the sake of experiencing them. I don't know which I'll start with first though. I'll also play with no Starter after I'm done with Snivy and Tepig.

    Wow, I'm surprised Oshawott got so popular. I remember when everyone was complaining about how fugly it was XD

    For me, I'll be playing Pokemon White(for Zekrom)and have a Snivy/Servine/Serperior as my starter. The reasoning? I like reptiles, a lot. The rest of my team is going to be all reptiles as well, since I found a way to spread the HM's amongst them(thank you HM learning fossil turtle!).

    I'm going with Snivy in Black (which will be the main one I play through), and Tepig in White. Snivy has been my favorite ever since they first revealed the starters, and I have a thing for grass types. Plus, I came up with the perfect nickname for her. I also really liked Tepig, but hated its evolutions... However, they grew on me, and now I'm excited to have one.

    No clue. Snivy looks pretty cool and I like Oshawott's final evolution. Tepig's line just seems a bit ironic. A pig that's a fire type. Makes me want to put a pig on a spit right now. =-o
