The Definitive Starter Power Rankings

Talking to some of the members of this forum on skype, I've decided to provide a definitive ranking of all eighteen main-game starters (I'm not counting Pikachu or any of the starters from side games... just the FWG trios we all know and love). You can disagree, but you'd be wrong. So without further delay, here we go. (Also, listing them as their final forms because I can)
Yes, Charmander holds the top two slots. Because it's that far ahead of the pack.
Only starter with cannons. Cannons > no cannons in most cases.
Kung Fu Chicken. Packs so much power it's banished to Ubers by Smogon.
Ninja Frog. With a tongue scarf. A true winner.
It's a penguin. Penguins are awesome.
Grouping these two guys together because I can't choose. The only time that I really have a hard time choosing a favorite starter from a particular generation.
Pert Pert. Kind of a derp, but an effective derp.
The concept is cool, but I'm not a fan of the final design
Bacon jokes aside, just kinda meh.
I just don't like the final form. The first two forms were nice, but the third form really ruined the set for me.
Now an astute reader might be asking, where are the grass type starters. And that's a fair question. And I'll tell you. No one likes grass type. It's just not a cool type. I mean the only grass type I really like is Breloom. The Snivy line is okay and Bulbasaur is iconic. But it's the type I never ever pick. So to rank them, I go like so:
13. Bulbasaur - the first
14. Snivy - smugleaf killin' it. losing his legs was a shame
15. Turtwig - cute enough. torterra is just a giant derp. and not a good derp like swampert
16. Treecko - again, not bad. But not good either.
17. Chespin - ugh. the final form. Just ugh.
18. Chikorita - the loser. the worst.
And there we go. The starter power rankings. As a bonus I'll tell you that pikachu would slot in at 9, moving the others down a spot beyond that.
