    Default Chikorita vs. Totodile vs. Cyndaquil

    This is no normal competition! This a competition that will impact my decision, on which starter I will chose to solo HG/SS. So, Chikorita, Totodile, or Cyndaquil? You decide!

    Cyndaquil, because I almost always go with the fire-type starter. And because typhlosion is the best pure fire-type in my opinion.

    Cyndaquil was my first Pokemon.

    However, Totodile is the best of the 3 in terms of battling.

    They all have their ups and downs, their 'class'. I'm assuming you're going to evolve them.

    Meganium is a supporter, Feraligatr is a Physical Tank (ATK/DEF), and Typhlosion is a Special Sweeper.

    If you're going to solo the game, Meganium, I think, is out of the picture because it's typing has many weaknesses and it's offensive stats aren't that great.

    This leaves Typhlosion and Feraligatr. Now, I like both, but Feraligatr wins me over. Typhlosion is fast and hits hard with special attacks, but it's movepool doesn't help to cover all typings. Nearly all moves learned on level up are Fire and the only good special moves (of another typing besides Fire) learned via TM/HM are Focus Blast, SolarBeam, and HiddenPower (off the top of my head) and they have 70% ACC and 5PP, one turn charge-up, and IV-dependence respectively.

    Feraligatr on the other hand, is Physical, giving it access to Crunch, AquaTail, IceFang and SuperPower on level-up + a whole lot of different typed attacks from TM/HM (Earthquake, Dragon/Shadow Claw, IcePunch etc). Finally, to sum it all up it can also learn SwordsDance. So Feraligatr, having 100 DEF can withstand a hit while setting up a SD and then basically sweep. It's typing is also weak to only two types: Grass and Electric which can be taken out with Ice Fang and Earthquake.

    SHORT ANSWER/TL;DR = Totodile/Croconaw/Feraligatr owns.

    In Silver I always choose Chikorita because she is sooo cute and evolves into Bayleaf (also cute) and then Meganium (which is cute too).

    My preference is Chikorita, but Totodile would probably be the smartest choice. I went up against Falkner with my little unevolved Chikorita and he gave me hell.

    So go with Totodile.

    Totodile FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!


    It helps that it learns Ice moves,which work for Clair and Lance. :3

    Despite what people say, Chikorita isn't all that bad. I had one in a previous save and really enjoyed training one. I would consider one if you have room for a mixed defender/supporter or just like it.

    Despite my sentiments towards it, it isn't as good as the other two.

    Totodile is great, probably the best of the starters. It was excellant typing and stats.

    Cyndaquil is more useful, as it is one of the better Fire-types you'll find in SS/HG.

    I'd pick either Totodile or Cyndaquil. Either one is great.

    First of all, stay away form Chikorita. You'll have a hard time with most the gym leaders if you solo it. Heck, I'm not sure you'll pass Pryce.

    That leaves Totodile and Cyndaquil. Cyndaquil can learn neat attacks, but its movepool won't help later in the game. Clair will be a pain greater than hell itself, since fire doesn't do much to dragon-type pokemon. Plus, all of her pokemon know Water-type moves. Lets think about Cyndaquil later. Lastly, you have Totodile. Awesome attack power, awesome movepool. Water+Ice-type moves will work well in the game. So, and all, I'll say Totodile would be the best way to go.

    Ah the Johto starters, by far the worst batch of starters ever created. Well in my opinion anyway.

    Anyway, picking Totodile because its the only starter of the bunch that can hold its own weight in the heat of battle.

    if you really want to use a johto starter go with cyndaquil.

    1. there are not many fire types available pre-e4 that is better
    2. feraligator is outclass by gyrados in every way. It is pain but i would evolve a magicarp into a gyrados.

    Totodile all the way. It can pretty much beat all the other Johto starters (Ice Fang, Waterfall) and it was my main pokemon before Swampert. A also like the act its based on a crocodile.
