Infernape should die in a fire. Or actually in a pond. You get the point.
I chose Torterra, because I like grass types.
Infernape, It is faster and has a better movepool than the two, which is why it's OU in the first place (aside from its fighting type granting neutral damage from Stealth Rock). Plus I find it weird with all the Infernape hate because I thought Charizard is hated more than Infernape due to its hype in general.
Infernape! Empoleon is cool too though. Torterra, while it has a cool name, just bores me.
Infernape is just epic, imo. Whether it's in the games or the anime, I just found it EPIC. <3
These are my favorite set of starters! I chose Empoleon though, gotta love a metal emporer penguin.
Torterra. My first starter and because it can kick the others' asses. Empoleon, it can use a grass type move, and for Infernape, a ground type move. Simple as that
Infernape for me! My favourite of the Sinnoh starters by far. Hell, he could even be my favourite starter of all (sorry Typhlosion, but Infernape is so useful :'c).
Starters of choice.

Sinnoh starters are all really great. It's hard to pick one for me, if i have to pick one, i would choose Empoleon because of it's infinite resistances. I used every one of these pokemon and they all were really awesome.

Empoleon gets my vote, as I just love this Pokemon's unique type, appearance, and various unique strategies in battle. I do like Torterra as well, so it comes in at a close second mostly because of it's brute strength, bulk, and Wood Hammer.
I don't like Infernape one bit and haven't got anything nice to say about this Pokemon.
The starters in Sinnoh are easily the most well designed up to now and I like the three lines almost equally.
I'll give my vote to Doidatose since I like the Black Tortoise legend, which was used as inspiration to make this Pokémon.
For me personally, I would choose Torterra 'cuz of its awesome design and stats, Attack and Defense.
My move set for Torterra:
I used almost the same set in my first Diamond file, but swapped Crunch for Rock Polish becuase it unfortunatly came out with a Speed hindering nature and the lowest Speed IV possible -__-'
I would go for Infernape though. I had one traded round to SoulSilver as a Monferno and it just ripped shit up out there... With the ability Iron Fist from the Dream World, my interest in the ape is still strong.
Torterra for me. The Rock Polish set in gen 4 UU was scary and devastating. Infernape has never been great in OU to be honest because even in gen 4 OU its only good niche which was beating stall was rubbish against other stall teams.
