    Default All your favorite starters from each gen

    I'm just curious to see who everyone's favorite starters are. This thread has probably been done before, I don't know though, so forgive me if I'm being repetitive.

    So who are your favorite starters from each generation and why?

    Mine are all in my signature, but I'll reiterate anyway

    Gen one: Bulbasaur. I love all the starters from the first generation a lot, but Bulbasaur just seem like chill Pokémon. I can't really put my finger on why I love it so much. I guess I just do

    Gen two: Cyndaquil. I chose Cyndaquil the first time I played Pokémon Gold. I've played with all of those starters, but Cyndaquil has always been the one I liked best. Plus I think Typhlosion looks awesome!

    Gen three: Mudkip. It evolves into Swampert, my favorite Dual type water/ground Pokémon, and one of my favorites overall. I like Torchic too, but mostly because it's adorable

    Gen four: Turtwig. Mostly because I love Torterra. I love it's grass/ground typing.

    Gen five: Tepig. Two main reasons. One is because I love pigs. The other is because Emboar has a beard of fire. Plus reading Emboar's pokédex entry made me really like him, and it's what led me to choose Tepig for my in game team (I had trouble deciding who to start with)

    Gen 1: I honestly liked all of the Gen 1 starters. Charmander, I guess, because it evolves into Charizard and I really like Dragons (even though it's typing is not Dragon).

    Gen 2: Totodile because all three of it's evolutions look really cool.

    Gen 3: Mudkip because of Swamperts water/ground typing.

    Gen 4: Again I like all 3 of them, but I choose Piplup. I like the Water/Steel typing of Empoleon, plus I like penguins.

    Gen 5: Snivy because I like the way Serperior looks.

    My favorite starter of all time is charmander, as it was my very first Pokemon.

    Gen 1: Charmander

    Gen 2: Totodile

    Gen 3: I suppose Torchic, although I'm not hugely into any of them

    Gen 4: None, they're all pretty cool, but none of them stand out

    Gen 5: Oshawott, but none of it's evolved forms

    1st and 2nd generations were the only ones where I really liked the starters, otherwise I just box them and use other Pokemon.

    It seems like every starter gets some loving. Though Tepig doesn't seem to get much love, nor Bulbasaur.

    Generation 1: Charmander = Charizard was just the coolest in gen1
    Generation 2: Totodile = The other two were kind of easy replaceable for better poks in gen2.
    Generation 3: Treecko = Grovyle is pimp.
    Generation 4: Turtwig = Torterra is cool, I like its unique typing.
    Generation 5: Snivy = Other two suck extremly hard in design, Samurott looks decent though.

    Gen 1: Bulbasaur. I just thought it was the most useful of the starters in terms of getting past the first Gym Leaders.
    Gen 2: Cyndaquil. I thought it was the coolest of the three.
    Gen 3: Mudkip. Even before the "so i herd" meme.
    Gen 4: Turtwig. Although it's extremely vulnerable, it's just darn cute.
    Gen 5: Oshawott. I was so obsessed with it that all of my Web Page Design projects involved Oshawott in some way.

    Kanto: Charmander. I was on the Charizard bandwagon too, no lie .______.
    Johto: Uhh...I can't choose. I like Totodile more now, but I loved Cyndaquil when I was a kid. So they're both equal.
    Hoenn: Torchic, hands down. I thought Blaziken was the most BOSS Pokemon ever, especially when I saw it in the anime. But I like Swampert a lot, too.
    Sinnoh: Now this is a difficult choice. Infernape and Empoleon are just sooo awesome ;_;
    Unova: Oshawott. Because Dewott is my favorite Gen 5 Pokemon.

    Gen 1: Bulbasaur. Ivysaur is one of my all-time favorite Pokemon. My favorite starter overall.
    Gen 2: I love my Typhlosion so much. Even though I don't particularly like the species, I love my Typhlosion.
    Gen 3: Probably Torchic. Blaziken is pretty awesome, and plus, Torchic is just so cute!
    Gen 4: Piplup. It's the one that I chose, and I really liked it, even if Empoleon is sort of weird looking.
    Gen 5: Snivy. Everything about it is just so cool! I love it's design and I love Serperior.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    Kanto: Charmander, I loved his line as a kid and thought he was the coolest for a long time. Please don't judge me...
    Johto: Totodile, though I fluctuated between all three at one point in time.
    Hoenn: Torchic
    Sinnoh: Probably the hardest for me since I love the design and concept choices for all three. I think I'll give the slight edge to Turtwig though.
    Unova: Oshawott, probably a bit odd since I liked Snivy more at first, but I grew to love it more as time went on. As soon as I picked it, trained it, and it evolved into both Dewott and Samurott, I was hooked (though I'm probably one of the few oddballs since I liked Samurott as soon as it came out XD).
