    Chimchar, for obvious reasons :)
    Charmander, Charizard is a epic, fire breathing dragon
    Cyndaquil, no reason
    Torchic, just doesn't appeal to me. Blaziken makes up for it, though.
    Tepig, I just don't like it.

    A tie between Cyndaquil and Torchic, but for overall usefulness, Torchic wins for me

    Design-wise, Charizard. It's 4x weakness to rock is partially forgiven by its immunity to ground. Blaziken's design also pleases me, nearly to the extent of Charizard. It's attack combined with Flame Charge are also decent. However, I also like Infernape's speed and the fact that it also gets Flame Charge pushes it nearly to the top for me. Blaziken.

    I prefer Infernape. Better speed than chicken(except for speed boost, which those biased guys GF gave him) and much better in all aspects than zard and co.

    Chimchar. I know I've said this in a lot of places, but it evolves into Monferno, which evolves into Infernape, which reminds me of that scene in Jesus of Nazareth where Jesus grabs a club and kicks all the moneychangers out of the temple.

    I have chosen Infernape.
    Sinnoh had the best fire starter, look-wise and battle-wise (before the existence of Speed Boost Blaziken, of course).

    Infernape > Charmeleon > Emboar > Typhlosion > Blaziken > Charizard, imo.

    Gen V was my first time picking the fire type starter. I really like Tepig, even if I find its evolutions to be pretty ghastly.

    I like Cyndaquil, it's so cute and its evolutions are pretty powerful too, not that into competitive battles and whatever so idk about how the stats compare to the other starters and stuff but I don't really care, Cyndaquil is awesome. Fennekin is awesome too though but it's not in the poll but yeah I understand why it's not there

    Can I say Fennekin now??

    No, actually I'll have the Cyndaquil line cause Typhlosion is beastly looking.

    But Fennekin might top them if it's evolutions are great.

    Competitively, Tyhplo is the middle of the road as far as Fire Starters are concerned.

    It goes something like this:

    1. Blaziken- Speed Boost means she's mixing it up with Mewtwo and Lugia up in Ubers.

    2. Infernape- OU means it's the only Fire Starter in the standard tier and one of the only two starters in the tier, period. The other is Venusaur.

    3. Typhlosion- It's tier is RU, which is the second lowest. However, it's got a solid position there and it's still above the other two. In fact, until recently, it was the only Fire Starter in this tier. Other RU Starters are Sceptile and Feraligatr.

    4. Emboar- Has a nice niche in NU and has recently made the move to RU, though its placment there is still shaky.

    5. Charizard- Belongs to NU, the very lowest official tier of play. You can blame Stealth Rocks for this entirely. Other Starters that share its tier are Serperior, Samurott, Torterra and Meganium.

    I don't play the games anymore, so i'll rate them in terms of how much i like their design:

    1. Charizard
    2-3 Typhlosion and Infernape (tie)
    4. Blaziken
    5. Embaor- one of the worst designs on any pokemon i have ever seen

    Typhlosion is not only my favourite fire starter, but also the only one I actually like. While I generally like Pokemon that are visually striking or interesting conceptually, there's something about Typhlosion's simplicity that I find very appealing.

    Oh and while you can't tell from it's sprites, Typhlosion is cute.


    Really freaking cute.

    No votes for Tepig? Hopefully he was just added in and that is why.

    He would be my 2nd vote, I voted for Torchic. So cute and very useful.
    If at first you don't succeed, warp reality till it fits your demands ;)

    claimed Ekans on 10/28/2012 and all has been well in the world ever since. :)
