Chimchar's probably a solid second place though.
Favorite? Torchic. Just look at how small is it! It's adorable. It's a pretty good fighter, too, and was a refreshing change from most of the other starters I choose, yet it works with my playing style.
And Blaziken is awesome.
Can't say much about the line itself though. They are cute and cool designs, and I like how the martial artist deal is portrayed with them... Though that's about it.
Least favorite... Mudkip. By far. I just dislike everything about it. I can see things that I like, or I understand how can they be likeable in other pokemon that aren't my thing, such as Infernape's line. But not with Mudkip.
And this is without taking into account the stupid meme.
My favorite is definetly Bulbasaur. It was the first pokemon I ever had and was one of the main reasons pokemon interested me so much~! I just love the thing.
Least favorite I haven't really thought about, Chikorita definetly comes to mind. That being said I never really cared for Torchic's family line either. But at the end of the day I'd have to say Mudkip unfortunately takes that title simply due to the "so I herd you likez mudkipz" junk that flows around. It was neutral to me at first, but now just thinking about it gets on my nerves.
I will always love my Turtwig :) So many turtles around. :P Pretty handy to keep it around for most situations, too. He's the everyman :)
I don't like Chikorita to be honest :( I think it's just a bit too difficult for me to use as I don't really make good use of walls and stuff.
Favourite: Chimchar, Chikorita, Mudkip or Cyndaquil. (I can't pick just one)
Least favourite: Squirtle.
Favorite: The Squirtle line. Gotta love those cannons.
Least favorite: I must be honest, I hope I don't offend anyone here, but Bulbasaur's line. Guess what? Their type advantage and Venusaur's tree dinosaur design is ugly.
1) It looks beautiful and glossy and demure.
2) I really like the Mudkip character in the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon storyline.
3) That meme doesn't bother me so much, because it kind of makes sense. Unlike... certain OTHER video game memes...
Favourites: Well, it has to be Torchic, Piplup and Tepig for me. I loved their evolution lines, and their designs to boot- conveying raw power in a beautiful style, to me. In my team, they've never let me down, I suppose.
Least Favourite: Well, it is more the starter that I never really consider; and that would be Totodile. His design (and his evolution line's designs) doesn't appeal to me as such.
Totodile's forever my undeniable favorite.
Although I dislike the design of the Hoenn starters equally, I haven't much experience playing with them. But I have with Piplup, and damn what a low that was.
I have to say, my favourite is Charmander, and has been since Gen 1. I'm just a sucker for dragon based mons.
My least favourite has to be Oshawott. I'm sorry, something about his whole line just bothers me. It's probably hi¡ow the last evolution looks, I hate its design
For example, Venusaur has Drought Ninetales, a Dream World ability that boosts its okay speed to blistering levels, Growth to boost his okay offenses to truly dangerous levels and the necessary typing to absorb Toxic Spikes. Charizard has Solar Power which, while strong, cuts its survivability, its not quite fast enough for OU and has no way of boosting that speed (unless you want to use DD and give up your Solar Power and...good luck with that,) and it has a 4x Stealth Rock weakness that severely limits the times it can switch in and cuts its already shitty survivability even further.
I can't argue about the card game though.
Favourite: Chimchar- plain awesome
Least favourite: Tepig- a fire pig? I don't think so.
