Treecko for the most diverse movepool out of the 5.
Pre-gen IV Treecko is my favorite, for STAB Leaf Blade, and for owning the entire region of Hoenn.

Do you play Terraria, the Minecraft-Zelda-Metroid hybrid? If you do, then join!
I am saying snivy, because he looks so cool. I have played all the generations and I remember when I first saw him I thought a deffinate yes, The only other grass starter I had picked was a chikorita in gold I think. But this time I actually really badly wanted the grass starter, even though I usually choose fire he just looks so cool and also because he is a snake and from childhood i always thought snakes and other reptiles were very cool and I still do.
snivy and rhymes with milord.
Bulbasaur's my favourite since all three of it's stages look great. Plus it's been around since the very start.
Snivy is second. It's everything Treecko has never managed to be. It loses because of Servine.
Turtwitg third. Very useful guy.
Treecko fourth. It has a great design,as it's first evo,but Sceptile is a fail.
Chikorita is last. For me,it always remained in the shadow of the other two Johto starters. Bayleef looks great,but then it turns into a Meganium whose design is just poor compared to it's pre-evos.

I'm glad this was a multi-choice poll, the odd number gen grass types are all my favs for different reasons. But, if I had to choose a number one, it's the Bulbasaur family all the way. Playing with or against it, Venusaur's bulkiness and tricks it can pull in a pinch battle never ceases to amaze me.
I went with Snivy, as all 5 of them are still bleh for me. Snivy, even though it's essentially Treecko with better curves. Or something. I dunno why, I just like it more than Treecko, and it's evo's are better.
I've never started with a Grass pokemon (Only Gen IV had me with Water, all other's have been Fire)
Oh goody. Grass starters almost always my favourites so this will be fun.
Turtwig hands down. Not only is it adorable, it's the only one with a unique type combination when fully evolved. It's done me well in battle as well, both in game and against people. My shiny torterra was also the one that go me my shiny leaf crown. :3
Chikorita was my favorite starter period for a long time. It's adorable and it doesn't get enough credit. I'm actually surprised it's doing so well in the poll so far, all I ever see is people putting it down.
I'm among the people who grew attached to snivy quickly. Based purely on first evolutions it's actually tied with oshawotta as my favorite fifth gen starter (which is rare for me) but their final evolutions and my best friend picking oshawott made the decision easier.
I feel weird putting bulbasaur so low on a list. I still love them but there are too many faults, the horribly common type combination (especially in the generation it comes from) takes away points for me. Not because I'm a hipster, because I kind of feel like I sound like one for liking bulba less for common typing and torterra more for unique typing, I just like when I get to play with different advantages and disadvantages and you can only do the same ones so many times.
Treecko... I don't understand it's popularity at all. The designs of it and its evolutions don't appeal to me in the least so I'm always confused when people say they look cool when I could actually go so far as to say I consider them hideous. Its movepool is good I guess but I don't know how anyone looked at all three third gen starters and picked the ugly lizard. Yes I know not everyone likes cute things best but its design falls flat next to the other two for reasons other than cuteness. I mean I don't think I actually like any of the third gen starters but at least the other two are cute in their first forms if nothing else. Their final forms are also much more badass than sceptile, at least in my opinion. I think I'm just sad that this is the only gen where the grass starter is my absolute least favorite of the three.
Wow that was a long answer when I was only asked about the first one. I clearly talk too much even more than I thought I did. ._.
