Squirtle, hands down. I don't really like any of the other water starters.
Swampert. Though that 4x weakness to grass and low speed is a big problem.
Swampert has always been my favorite water-type starter.

Squirtle's and Totodile's evolution families are the best. I maybe go with a Squirtle, since it was my first favourite pokémon ever too. Nowadays I love both of them, their all evolutions have nice designs and water is a cool type :P.
Mudkip was a little lame after those and I can't stand Piplup and it's evolutions. Horrible.
SWAMPERT! By far the best starter, and extremely useful in game
I don't really like the water starters but if I have to choose I chose Totodile.
Totodile is great (I voted for it)
Croconaw not taht great but the name is ok
Feraligatr is just awesome is like him the most (strong, dangerous looking and an aligator :) )
Other Starters:Squirtle family is great also but not that much
Mudkip family is just
but Piplup family.....c'mon a penguin that's actually a steel type...just bleh
Totodile Forever <3
Hes the best of all starters,All generations,All types.
No wait,Out of all the pokemon hes the best.
I just love him that much ^^ <3
