Since all starters have been a three stage line I think Mareep, Flaafy, and Ampharos would make for good starters. Mareep isn't a super powerful Pokemon at the beginning of the game and is relatively easy to train thanks to the regional bird appearing early on. Another good one I think would be Seedot, Nuzleaf, and Shiftry. While Nuzleaf evolves via a leaf stone if it were a starter then it probably wouldn't. That said though requiring a leaf stone to evolve it into it's third stage would be really interesting. I think Lotad also would have made for a good starter. Ludicolo was always a favorite of mine. As for fire types, the only three stage line is the Magmar line. I think Magmar would have made for a good starter if Magmortar hadn't been so disappointing. Having a base speed stat lower than it's pre-evo is pretty sad. Still though it's shiny color is terrific. So what Pokemon do you guys think would have made or would make good starters?
