    Default What starter did you pick and why?

    I picked Tepig, since I usually pick the fire type starters and it was a female which was very nice :)

    I presume we're talking Generation V here?

    Well i usually play a game starting with each starter, then decide on one for my official proper game.

    But i still can't decide between Oshawatt and Tepig

    I picked Oshawott because Samurott is cool.

    Snivy. I thought Snivy looked the best out of all the Gen V starters and the anime contributed to that factor. I find Serperior an extremely bad pokemon but then again I don't play pokemon very seriously with stuff like natures and stats etcetera.

    For Black, I chose Oshawott. I thought that it was cute, I liked the designs for its evolution, and I wanted to start out with a Water type in the first of the two new games for a change of pace. I would usually choose the Fire type starter in the first out of the two new games and a Water starter for the other, except for G/S and HG/SS where it was reversed. For White, I chose Snivy. I really liked its design and since I was so impressed with Turtwig in Platinum, I didn't want to wait until the third version, as I assumed that was going to happen at the time, to try Snivy out. I also wasn't too interested in raising another Fire/Fighting type starter again and there were a few other Fire types I was interested in raising. Serperior wasn't nearly as impressive as I hoped it would be, but I still enjoyed raising my Snivy. Samurott was more useful in my Black team, even without having a good movepool to choose from, and it does usually put up more of a fight than Serperior does with most of its opponents.

    I picked Oshawott because I had never picked the Water type starter before (apart from when I briefly used Totodile in Gold before restarting) and I loved Oshawott, so cute, and he was awesome early on in the BW series. Tepig was my 2nd choice, but didn't really want to have another Fire Fighting (already got my awesome Infernape) and Serperior just had a rubbish movepool, and I already had 3 grass starters.

    In Black2 however, I will be picking Tepig most likely, because I already have a powerful Samurott, and don't need another.

    I picked Snivy. I thought the design was cute and the evolutions very neat-looking (although to be fair he doesn't get much to do as a Serperior...). I also wanted to rotate through the types of starters, so having done water and then fire already, it was the turn of the grass-type. Not sure if I want to keep that up for Black 2, although both the Oshawott and Tepig my brother traded me are doing well. Plus Oshawott/Dewott is just cute... ;)

    Well, from previous generations I've picked Charmander, Cyndaquil, Sceptile, and Empoleon.

    In Black I chose Tepig. Emboar was quite awesome. However, I started another 2 new games, to try out the other 2 starters. Snivy was pretty hard to raise, but it was worth it. It fits my style a bit more, similar to how Sceptile did. Samurott was a very worthy starter too, with good, balanced stats. Megahorn also paved way for me to win the League, both story and post-game. So for me, I'm still deciding between Snivy and Oshawott.

    I picked Oshawott, I really like its evolutions and it's adorable. Plus, it's strong against most of the gym leaders in Unova.

    Oshawott because it's adorable. That and I always pick the water starter first in every gen.

    I always pick the water starter, but get the other two either from my copy of the other version or friends.

    I picked Tepig in White, solely because I have always picked the fire starter. It's tradition. I'm not a competitive player, as much as I would like to be, because I do not have enough time for it. If I was I would've given this more thought, but until then, I'll always be choosing the fire starter by default. Anyway, I think Tepig's adorable. :3

    *snorts* "Tepig!"

    I think I'll be breaking this tradition in White2, though. I've really been eyeing Snivy for a while now. I think his design is amazing. Besides, I curious as to how raising other sorts of starters are like.
