Kanto (Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise)
Johto (Totodile, Croconaw, Feraligatr)
Hoenn (Mudkip, Marshtomp, Swampert)
Sinnoh (Piplup, Prinplup, Empoleon)
Unova (Oshawott, Dewott, Samurott)
Marshtomp was only water type. Or that 'choosed' was a word.
Dunsparce, the best pokemon, defeating Pikachu.
Swampert is ground too.
Swampert. Its completely badass and extremely useful in battles.
I love them all!!!! but i choose BLASTOISE
Friend Code X is:
Mudkip makes RSE so easy.
Blastoise, definitely. I love most of the Pokemon from subsequent generations, but the starters are not among them. Kanto starters have the best design by far.
Mudkip's final form is only weak to grass...
Mudkip gets my vote. Probably the only region I'd choose a water starter over a fire.
Even more kickass if he's a shiny Mudkip :)
Squirtle, just for nostalgia.
Plus, I've grown sick of the "herd u liek mudkipz" stuff (GASP! SACRILEGE!), preferred Cyndaquil and Chikorita to Totodile, while Dawn and Piplup ruined my Piplup experience.
Competitively, Swampert does win (why does it have 1 more point than any of the other 11 starters? Is there any real reason?), no matter how you put it (unless someone is packing HP Grass and Swampert is, tied to a tree or something).
So, in order:
2. Mudkip/Piplup/Totodile. I like-hate them all the same, really, with Squirtle just barely edging out. Usually, I pick the Fire-type to start it off, even in FR/LG or R/B.
Piplup.. He was my First Starter when I got Diamond (though Turtwig is my favorite and I can't stand the monkley that farts fire just eww....)
Mudkipi s also great since I love all the Hoenn starters
Totadile is my third My fist few play throughs on Silver he served me well... I don't really know if I like him or Cyndiquil better)
Blastiose... he's meh I only really liked Charazard in that Gen
