First, I chose Bulbasaur owning the first two gyms with Vine Whips =P

But now I use Charmander because he simply pwns. I never use him in first two gyms though =P

Balancing your team is important more than starters. I usually put my starter in the PC at a moment. My point is which starter you start with isn't as important as which team you end with

Wise words...I think...

I chose Charmander....So I did have a little diffuculty beating the first two gym leaders. I'd still choose Charmander because I find that I raise my pokemons levels higher to defeat those gym leaders and Charmander is my fave of the three first starters.

Originally, my older bros friend told us that Bulbasaur was the best out of all of them so thats what we chose. Now on LG I chose Squirtle, cause on Silver I liked Feraligatr the best and on Ruby, Mudkip's evo line looked better over all (for me looks count) so when I got LG, I couldn't really choose what I wonted so I stay'd with the water Pokemon.

Im a water-starter kind of guy...

Squirtle: Ice beam, Surf, Earthquake, filler
That takes care of ALL of its weaknesses. wow...

Tododile: Slash, Swords dance, Surf, filler
the only worthwile G/S starter due to Swords Dance (Breed)

Mudkip: Same as squirtle
Wow, you gotta love that ground part. One of the ONLY counters to Bolt-Beamers

When I first played Blue I started with squirtle. Now, years later in LG I still pick Squirtle. What can I say, it is a part of who I am in the game in a way, I even use an Everstone on it now that there is such a thing. Years later, it is also nice to be abe to get a female right off bat, as that was the gender I always pictured my Squirtle (who happens to have had the nickname Ryo from day one) as being.

When I first started, I choose Bulbasaur becuase the little guide book that came with it said Bulba was the eaisest one to use and, my sister forced me to get it o.o;; Now I'd choose Charmander... I usually choose fire starters

I used to pick Bulbasaur. Now I choose either him or Charmander. When I choose Charmander, I do the first gym with a Butterfree with Confusion.

Well, I would choose all of the ones that I used to: Squirtle, Cyndaquil, and Treecko. I love all three, and wouldn't have changed a thing.
