Wat starter does every1 think they will pick for pokemon diamond and pearl? If u didn't no the starters are Hikozaru (fire), Potchama (water), and Naetoru (grass). I will probably pick Potchama cause I like water pokemon the best.

I think I'll just box my starter this time and have something original that everybody else in the pokeworld dosen't already have.

I'm gonna have to go with Pochama also.
I really don't like the monkey.
My 2nd choice would've been the turtle.

I go with the fire monkey, whatever his name is. He has a sweet final evo, and has the same types as Blaziken.

I'm going with the awesome turtle (Naetoru). Two reasons:

1. Turtles are awesome, for example- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
2. Second turtle Pokemon in ages who is a starter - Squirtle

if i could i would go for both naetoru and potchama.Naturally i want Potchama because its images look cool and has good attks.

01-29-2007, 01:22 AM
There are threads with this question already but anyway I will pick pochama

Leman
01-29-2007, 01:25 AM
Naetoru, cause Datios will own the other two with EQ!

01-29-2007, 02:05 AM
naetoro will be mine forsure, i dont like the penguin or the monkey

Chewy
01-29-2007, 02:15 AM
I would get Pochama, but my second choice would be Naetoru. I like Naetoro except for the fact that it's grass type. I don't like grass type.

Legendary Wolf
01-29-2007, 02:19 AM
Naetoru's final evo will pwn you

01-29-2007, 02:36 AM
I go with the fire monkey, whatever his name is. He has a sweet final evo, and has the same types as Blaziken.

Where have you seen the evolution of the fire monkey? I would really like to see it.

I would choose the fire monkey anyway.

Naetoru for sure! I always pick the grass-type starters. Plus, I love grass types. =)

01-29-2007, 03:15 AM
Yeah looke at there stats here
Dotaitos-http://serebii.net/pokedex-dp/389.shtml
Goukazaru-http://serebii.net/pokedex-dp/392.shtml
Enperuto-http://serebii.net/pokedex-dp/395.shtml

ust scroll all the way to the bottom and look at there stats.

Dilop
01-29-2007, 03:34 AM
Naetoru, probably. I'll ditch my starter once I get my team up and going, though.

Zenaku
01-29-2007, 10:55 AM
I chose Naetoru, and his final evo Dodaitos (Serebii.net has the wrong spelling) is awesome. A Grass/Ground really is an impressive fighter, but that might just because I love his moveset.

If I go for a second playthrough after I finish (I'm at 35 hours and don't have the 8th badge yet), I'll probably choose Pocchama, as a King Penguin interests me.

Deoxys2000
01-29-2007, 02:16 PM
I Will Choose Hikozaru No Matter What! Well,Coz Of The Last Evo ^^

Azumarill_056
01-29-2007, 03:02 PM
Defo gonna go with Naetoru!:biggrin:

Hauken
01-29-2007, 05:45 PM
I'm picking Hikozaru. I always choose the fire starter, with the exception
of Feraligatr in Silver version and Sceptile I picked in Emerald.

spr bhav
01-29-2007, 08:20 PM
that flaming, blazing monkey :eek:

01-29-2007, 08:21 PM
Pocchama, the water-pengiun Pokemon.

Frozen_Mystic
02-15-2007, 11:37 PM
I'm going Neatoru, at least... for my first file.... Dotaitos is cool. When I get Pocchama in my second file I'm not letting it evolve. Hikozaru? Bleag! I'll trade it as soon as possible!

BrassIttoTower
02-15-2007, 11:52 PM
I'll probably not chose a starter and box it as soon as I can for some originality on my team. But if not, Pochoma or Turtwigs for me.

Espeon EX
02-15-2007, 11:53 PM
I'm gonna get turtwig and hikozaru, Y'know we can just discuss this at the d/p thread.:ermm:

Gamakichi
02-16-2007, 11:20 PM
monkey>turtle>penguin

Needless to say which I will choose, eh?

BathedinBlue
02-17-2007, 06:00 PM
+ Turtwig most likley - the move "Leafstorm" sounds too cool to pass up. Plus I really like the Grass/Ground type combination for it's final evolution.

Master Ash

Finchy
02-17-2007, 06:11 PM
Pocchama the penguin looks pretty funky; I like the look of the final evolution Enpeturo. I also like choosing the water type because it can learn Ice moves which can take down the Grass, Flying, Ground and Dragon types easily. Some water Pokemon can also learn electric moves as well, which is yet another advantage I don't wanna pass up :D

KOR
02-17-2007, 08:06 PM
I think i'll choose Turtwig or Pochama(forgot his english name). I think i'll choose Pochama since he'll become useful in the first gym and in the later gyms but Turtwig is really useful in the last few gyms.

Alienshroom
02-18-2007, 07:25 PM
Chinchar is best I picked him on my Japanese version I had no problems.

Rocky28940
02-19-2007, 03:36 PM
Turtwig dfeinately, he's cute and very strong.

Draconic_Espeon
02-19-2007, 03:46 PM
Meh. I wish there was a fourth choice. >< I guess, if I get the game, I'll choose Turtwig. I don't particularly like any of them, though, least of all the monkey.

I wish you could pick Korinku as a starter. It's one of the few 4th Gen. Pokemon I actually like.

I agree the 4th gen pokemon are the worst set... Palkia is the one I like best out of all of them. The starters do Indeed suck though.

02-19-2007, 06:56 PM
The penguin because i like the water starters.I don't like the fire starter because he looks retarded and i don't like the grass starter because he to looks retarded

i'm going with chimchar(hikozaru) because he's a charred monkey!

Hakken
02-19-2007, 09:22 PM
I'm thinking Chimchar, but I probably will box it eventually...

Pooka
02-20-2007, 10:44 AM
If I can get hold of Diamond I'll pick Turtwig.

MysticAura
02-20-2007, 04:11 PM
I'm definitely choosing the water starter Piplup/Pochama because I like its final evolution the most.

Solarlegend
02-20-2007, 05:18 PM
how many people here pick enperuto just because you like the final evolution??

Solarlegend
02-20-2007, 05:18 PM
i mean pochama

KOR
02-20-2007, 11:58 PM
Not me. I always pick the water pokemon first. Also he's good for the first few gyms. Then later i can get some more powerful pokemon and they'll be good for the E4.

Blue_Dragon_Mew
02-21-2007, 02:12 AM
I useually choose one of the fire types, in Hoenn Mudkip was added to my favorite choices, but in Sinnoh, my only favorite is Pochama. I know this guy isn't a starter, but the squirrel pokemon looks awsome!

RawrIsMyMiddleName
02-21-2007, 04:56 AM
i'm sad to break my tradition of always getting the fire type starter, but this is an exception... I'm picking Pochama and evolve it to Enperatu.

pichu757
02-21-2007, 05:44 AM
Pochama! 3nd EVO Is Water/Steel! never seen 1 like that! :surp::signwow:

Ali the Dark One
02-21-2007, 05:58 AM
Dodaitos is Grass/Ground type, which means, that it can 'put a beating/protect itself' against the fire monkey... Second choice would be Emperuto, simply for looks though, seeing as Hikozaru could give it a run for its money with Emperuto's half steel type...

Anastasia-R
02-22-2007, 01:17 AM
I would pick.....Pochama! Here is some reasons:

1.I could use a t.m. Ice beam to beat grass types.

2.It's water! I could beat a fire type in no time.

3.When that grass guy gets to it's last stage, it will be ground type and water will have more damge.

~Anastasiar~

P.S:If you have your reasons....post. If you have more then me for the water type the just sat it. (That means you guys who like the others.)

Furyflame
02-23-2007, 02:31 AM
I want pochama cuz its strong against the other starters and its cute!

Dynamik
02-23-2007, 02:38 AM
Piplup!! Steel is one of my favorite types!!

Furyflame
02-24-2007, 03:10 PM
It doesnt become steel until it evolves though. SOMEONE ELSE POST ON THE TOPIC OF D/P I HAVE MY NAME EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ChimcharUno
02-25-2007, 03:02 AM
Piplup, but I will be careful, cause it is steel and fire is da best thing against steel but water would make it a normal hit though right?

Blue_Dragon_Mew
02-26-2007, 11:18 PM
I want pochama cuz its strong against the other starters and its cute!

Amen to that
And a water/steel type makes grass and fire moves do nuetrol damage
Wouldn't a water/steel type eventurally rust?

Ridley
02-26-2007, 11:21 PM
I might get the Turtwig guy.

Vaporeon
02-27-2007, 01:57 AM
I'll choose Piplup. =D

Dynamik
02-28-2007, 01:09 AM
Piplup, the most awesomest penguin in the world! :cool:
I could use my Blaziken instead of Chimchar anyway.
Turtwig will mess up my Anti- Grass starter campaign.

No reason to pick anything else besides Piplup. ^_^

memj23
03-01-2007, 01:49 AM
id pick turtwig, cuz its last form will own the other 2 starters, and it will do better at the gyms than the other 2. take a look at gyms http://www.serebii.net/diamondpearl/gymleaders.shtml
only bad thing about not picking the fire one is that ponyta is the only other fire type in the game

Actually since it is grass/ground it is 4 times as weak agains an ice beam which water starters learn so water is the best type.It defeats grass with ice and fire with water.Also Piplup's evolved form is steel/water so it is not super effective to grass or fire!Also the steel part of it makes it not super effective to electric either so he overcomes his biggest weaknesses.
Piplup of course

Soda
03-01-2007, 02:22 AM
Noones pickin the fire starter????Well I would choose him just because theres advantages doesnt mean he cont win and I guess I have a thing for monkey pokemon!(Got mankeys primapes,and of course...Aipom with the new pokemon that will be another 4!!!

Saisho
03-01-2007, 02:42 AM
Turtwig (Naetoru), the grass one

Negative Zone
03-01-2007, 02:45 AM
Turtwig. Only because I have something that could save it. MANAPHY!

Pickleboy
03-01-2007, 03:15 AM
Piplup, cuz he's so CUTE!

Blue_Dragon_Mew
03-02-2007, 04:03 AM

If by overcoming his greatest weakness you mean gets hit just as hard as when he was a pure water type, then yes he does overcome his biggest weakness when he becomes water/steel

ME: actually ur theory about water/steel making electric attacks not be super effective isnt so true, because its a water type it is gonna feel the effect of the electric attack, making it super effective and it will still get pwn by this thing http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/403.shtml and http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/389.shtml, bcuz grass will ALWAYS beat water... ALWAYS(unless its tentacool or quilfish, because their poison type also.

RocketMeowth
03-02-2007, 04:49 AM
I am going to be picking Turtwig. The monkey is jsut wrong looking in my opinion sicne I'm deathly afraid of all primates and, everyone wants Pochama.

So:

Monkey = EW
Pochama = not original

How about Piplip. I will eventually get them all since I will restart it several times. Transfer them to another game pack before I do.

groudon6_6_6
03-02-2007, 08:57 PM
Turtwig, Chimchar or Piplup.Hmm.

I might pick chimchar. He is cool and will evolve into Moukazaru then into Goukazaru!

Kayos
03-02-2007, 09:04 PM
I don't know really, I mean, I like Turtwigs last form (the giant armoured dinosaur with tree on shell), but Pochama's last form is pretty cool too, while the firey monkey just looks awesome. Fire has always been my fav, but I might be changing this time round.

The Maple Syrup Baptist
03-03-2007, 07:44 PM
In Diamond, I'll pick Piplup.

In Pearl, I'll pick Turtwig.

I'll breed someone's Chimchar to finish them off.

Ironically, Chimchar's the easiest to use because of it's high Speed stat, but it's nice that people are going for more diversity instead of just straight sweepers.

Most likely I'll choose Chimchar because I always choose the fire starter. xD

icephantom02
03-17-2007, 11:46 AM
Chimchar or Turtwig all the way baby! I don't really like Piplup, but I like its evos. Piplup doesn't learn any good moves early on, so its harder to go with. I will probably, more-than-likely (lol) go with Chimchar.

catch em all
03-17-2007, 01:40 PM
Im picking chimichar all the way cause i don't wnat 1 fire pooke o the wayt to the E4:happy:

I'm going to have to take Turtwig. His final evolution looks so cool and his first evolution looks like Spike from The Land Before Time movies(you all know what I'm talkin' about!).:cool:

Anyway I don't like the looks of Chimchar or his evolutions. And Piplup's final stage is just weird (Water/Steel? Come on!)

03-17-2007, 04:51 PM

03-17-2007, 04:55 PM
I've never ever done grass type starters, exception of Pokemon Yellow, when you get it from that girl in Cerulean City, but I won't start until Grass types look cooler! And right now, I think I'm going to have to wait another few more years.:ermm:

Piplup on Diamond, Chimchar on Pearl, since I'm getting both.

Razzmatazz
03-18-2007, 02:33 AM
I'm going to pick the Grass type, because I always pick the Grass type. But this generation of Pokemon look plain dissapointing - I'm going to ditch my starter for the first R/B/Y or G/S/C Pokemon I can find... it'll be the first time I've ditched my starter, that'll be a different experience.

03-18-2007, 02:48 PM
Fire is only good vs like 3-4 gyms water is good for like 4-5 gyms grass is good for 5-6 gyms because fire is the hardest to train starter water is the secon and grass is the easiast however ill pick chimichar:biggrin:
