    Totodile for me. Because 1. It's water, 2. It has a funky dance, and 3. It's a crocodile.

    Cyndaquil is the only one who was ever remotely useful to me.

    Cyndaquil without a doubt. The other two are good too, but Cyndaquil is way more helpful in my opinion.

    hmm well I looked back silver I started totodile, I think gold I started chikorita and crystal I started with cyndaquil, I feel like I can remember more of fighting with him but not sure. chikorita is a pretty hard start against a flying then a bug gym. I feel like Gen II with most people was just like gen I and people preffered the fire and water starters. As for best? I'm not surevwhile last one of these I had a bit more of an opinion but currently not sure on this one.

    Cyndaquil. Can take the other 2 out without a problem and has the best chance of taking on the Elite 4 and winning. If only he had a better movepool. He's not the Pokemon he used to be.

    If we're talking about G/S/C, then it's Cyndaquil, sadly. Chikorita has little to no advantage on anyone at Johto, and Totodile couldn't abuse his physical attack stat. If we're talking about HG/SS, then it's Totodile for this following set: Dragon Dance, Waterfall, EQ, and Ice Punch.

    that moveset isn't very useful since you need to breed for it.

    The same can be said for other sets for Pokemon who do decently in battle.

    I am talking about ingame usefulness here. The fact that you need to breed a starter after the 7th badge with a slightly difficult to get poke makes it a lot less useful.

    Just get the Swords Dance TM, plus with available Waterfall/Aqua Tail (and in-game, Surf does okay till it gets that) and other physical moves it certainly is no slouch, whereas I feel Typloshion has a too limited special movepool, at the very least for an in-game perspective (Fire moves and Focus Blast is mostly what I can find that's really viable moves. Thunderpunch in GSC is certainly a plus though).

    A Water/Normal combo hits a lot neutral, plus add Ice Fang and Crunch and you've got potential. You certainly don't need to breed to get something good, at least for in-game.

    But yeah, I like all of them, but obviously Totodile (or should I say Feraligatr) is my clear favorite. I'm not too fond of Meganium and Quilava, but Bayleef is cool and Cyndaquil and Typloshion is pretty awesome. The Johto starters is clearly my favorite set of starters, so it's not that I don't like Chikorita or Cyndaquil though.
