Blaziken for me. It's my 3rd favorite Starter of all times. I like the Fire/Fighting combination and he's a powerful beast. I don't think too much of Empoleon, too.
"I'm sure that we and Pokémon have helped each other and enriched the world since ancient times. These memories have been engraved in each Pokémon's heart! So, I want Pokémon and people to get closer and closer! As the Champion, I want to tell that to everybody!"
Blaziken just because I hated Gen 4 and loved Gen 3

My two favorite starters, good memories with both of them.
Blaziken wins though, sorry pimpin penguin.
Well, I have used both of them as starters in Sapphire and Diamond and they are both pretty even.
They can learn moves that aren't their typing...
eg. Blaziken can learn Bounce and Empoleon can learn Drill peck.
They can be trained to change their best stat.
eg. I taught Blaziken a few moves and now it is my best defender apart from metagross.
I once battled an empoleon that knew:
Giga Impact and Blizzard
It had insane attack.
The only difference I can find between them is the other starters.
Blaziken beats Sceptile and its fighting type trait beats Swamperts ground type trait.
Imfernapes fighting type trait beats Empoleons steel type trait and Torterras ground type trait beats it too.
Because of that, Blaziken is considered better in my eyes.
I was tempted to pick Empoleon, but I chose Blaziken. I do believe that others have explained why the flaming chicken is awesome.
Thanks for reading.

Blaziken. I like it a lot.
Blaziken is one of the best starters in the pokemon world. It wins hands down.
Croconaw is officially claimed!

Im not sure who will win! I mean, there's a type disadvantage becasue Blaziken is fire (and fighting) and Empoleon is Water! So, im not sure.
Umbreon and Vaporeon rock!
