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?
