    In my opinion, Squirtle. Really defensive, and can deal good damage. Though Bulbasaur works if you want to knock out Brock and Misty quickly, but I still say Squirtle
    Also, fix your sound, I can't hear you

    Charmander, to make the first two Gyms more challenging.

    Okay. So you want a starter.......
    The best starter to choose is squirtle. Because a water type like squirtle can defeat most of the gym leaders and elite 4 members easily. But it should have very good and balanced moves.
    The next choice is charmander. Well thats a cool looking pokemon. And when it evolves charizard it would be very useful. It can even learn dragon type moves. But it would be a challenging one.
    If you want more challenge, pick bulbasaur. Because its very tough to win against the gym leaders and elite4 members using a grass type like it.

    I prefer to take charmander as starter. But its your choice. Do what you like is better. Choose your best starter. And good luck on your journey. Cuz you have a long way to go.

    I personally would say Charmander. He was my original starter way back in the day. In all honesty, I do like the challenge the first gyms bring to training and fighting, though. I've raised many Charmanders and it's always worked out great for me.

    I will never forget the time that I solo Blaine's gym with my Venusaur, choose bulbasaur he's wonderful. Squirtle is Adlai good, I never personally liked charizard however.

    Take Bulbasaur. You'd have a sub-seeder before you even go to Victory Road. The substitute move tutor is at Fuschia City. Sleep Powder and Leech Seed are an excellent combo.

    Pick whatever floats your boat. They all have their strengths and weaknesses.

    Don't pick charmander. Just don't
    I would take bulbasaur just for personal preference (and its awesomeness)
    but they all are on equal standing.
    Except charmander

    I don't think it really matters, no mater what you choose you will come across a Pokemon your starter will have trouble against.

    I usually pick Squirtle or Bulbasaur. I think I chose Charmander once and it sucked haha.

    Charmander (Charizard) is overrated, while Bulbasaur is underappreciated, Squirtle is the cool one. So pick up Squirtle.
    But I suggest to try three of them to get to know them well.

    You Can't Go Wrong With Any Of The Three Starters From Kanto (Bulbasaur,Charmander,and Squirtle). All Three of There Designs are Really Cool and So Are There Evolutions. When Choosing a Pokemon It All Depends on Which Pokemon's Final Evolution You Prefer, What Other Pokemon You Plan on Using on Your Team, And Which Style You Prefer In Using. Venusaur (Bulbasaur's Evolution) Stats Add Up To 525 Specializing in The Special Attack and Special Defense Categories. Charizard (Charmander's Evolution) Stats Add Up To 534 Specializing in The Special Attack and Speed Categories. Blastoise (Squirtle's Evolution) Stats Add Up To 530 Specializing in The Defense and Special Defense Categories. All Pokemon has There Strengths and Weaknesses so Types Don't Matter Whether it is Immune To, Weak To, Resistant To, or Damage Normally By.

    With all Of That Being Said I Choose Charmander. The Charmander's Line is Amazing. Not Only is Charizard The Strongest out of The Two but His Movepool is Very Deep as Well, So You Can Utilize It In Many Ways In Which It Can be Effective.

    Charizard is Also a Fan Favorite so Thats More of a Reason to Choose it.
    Hope this Helps When You Are Choosing a Starter.

    Depends on your type of choice but I would recommend Squirtle because it is more of a middle ground between the unappreciated Bulbasaur and the Overappreciated Charmander.

    I'm going to go through LeafGreen once with each. But that's more because I want the different legendary dogs at the end. I usually choose chamander as I'm a fire-type trainer by preference.
