    Question Least favorite starter?

    What's your least favorite starter? Although I like Pikachu (doesn't everyone?), he doesn't really cut it as a starter. Why? You thought it was hard to beat Brock with Charmander? Apparently, Gamefreak FORGOT that all Gen 1 Rock-types were Ground-types, so Pokemon Yellow had the hardest first gym of all time. And what could you use besides Pikachu at that point in the game? Pidgey? Rattata? Caterpie? Really?

    Chikorita is my least favorite out of all the starters, because it's more of a supporter than an attacker. I prefer to use all the others for brute power, and Chikorita doesn't quite satisfy. I will admit, I still like Chikorita, though.

    p.s. I reached 100 on my post count! Yay!

    Tepig and Snivy are my two least favourite starters. Tepig is fine on its own but its line is what ruined the Pokemon for me. And I just don't like Snivy as it is, even with his line. They're both boring. Overall Gen. 5's starters were a huge letdown.

    I never liked Turtwig. I know of its mythological origins, largely thanks to Bulbanews' "On the Origin of the Species," but it just looks terrible, in my opinion.

    That's the same problem I have with both Tepig and Piplup. The first one is good, but the next two evolutions are just horrid for all the same reasons.

    I really don't like Chikorita or its evolutions. They just don't flow well and I'd almost never use them. Tepig comes close after, partly because it evolves into a Fire/Fighting.

    Out of all the starters, my least favorite is Turtwig. There was just something about it that I didn't like. Perhaps it was how it looked. In any case, that's why D&P is the only generation where I didn't choose a grass starter. (I ended up with Piplup)
    Once upon a time there was a leafeon. There wasn't anything special about him. He was just a regular leafeon.
    But there's a story behind the leafeon.

    Charmander (I love Charmeleon, but I hate Charizard. It is lame), Totodile (Both of its evolutions are fugly) and Turtwig (boring).
    Also, I don't hate, but I don't really like any of the Hoenn starters. They are a bit boring. :|

    My favorites are Snivy and Piplup. Hopefully Froakie and Chespin will be awesome enough to be my faves too

    Chikorita was the worst for me. It was too much of a supporter to be of any real use. On top of that, it's typing and choice of attacks (or lack of) just made the role even more useless. It may have good defensive stats, but as a pure Grass-type, all those weaknesses made its defenses moot. It was just the worst of the worst. Squirtle and Totodile are next in line, though I favor them more in recent years, but still not by much.

    Chimchar.
    Choosing from fire starters (as it really is not my favourite type) and the fact I don´t like monkeys (strangely, I like the elemenal monkeys) resulted into Chimchar.

    (But maybe it´s tie with Froakie)


    If I make some stupid grammar mistake, I´m terribly sorry and feel free to correct me.

    Mankey was available west of Viridian city, as well as the two Nidos (who both learned Double Kick at an early level back then.) They were placed there precisely so you wouldn't get utterly screwed by the first gym in Pokemon Yellow.

    My least favorites are Charmander (overhyped, overexposed, overrated,) Chimchar (I hate spotlight stealing monkeys) and Pikachu (ugh. Effing electric rat. Overexposed, overhyped spotlight stealer that it is.)

    I actually like Tepig and I love Chikorita and Turtwig.

    I'm judging mostly on the way the Pokemon looks, Torchic was one I disliked, along with Johto starters, As for Gen 6, I'm going to dislike Fennekin, I don't really like canines much - I'm a cat/mustelid person.

    Thank 'god' I am not the only one who dislikes Johto starters.
    I mean, Cyndaquil is a bit cute, but that is about it. The other two are boring and/or ugly (Totodile).

    Quite honestly the only regions with really interesting starters were Kanto, Sinnoh and apparently the Generation VI region.

    I am also a cat person btw.

    I quite dislike Torchic, and its evolutions even more so. My favourites include all grass starters. Though I guess with the release of Gen VI the grass starter might not turn out to be my favourite for the first time. I prefer reptiles, I suppose.

    I would have to go with Totodile and Mudkip. I've never really been a fan of any of the water starters.
