Top 10 Best Starter Pokemonblueguy120
The Top Ten
The first pokemon I chose was charmander. It is super powerful! Who says charizard has problems with the first two gyms? I beat them using only charmeleon!
Leave the guy alone! If he likes Charmander, then that's FINE! Let him have his opinion! - SurcaneWolf
Charmander is my favorite pokemon when it comes to Kanto. It is so strong I could beat all the pokemon league as well as all 8 gyms
Leave this person alone! He likes Charmander! SO WHAT?! You don't have to force your opinions on other people like that! - SurcaneWolf
This adorable pokemon is very good when it comes to flame attacks - blueguy120
It is so awesome
Mudkip is all that you'd want a starter to be!
It's super cute!
Its super powerful and can learn ground type moves before it evolves!
When Mudkip fully evolves in to Swampert, a water-ground type pokemon, it only has one weakness: Grass. If you teach it ice beam or another ice type move it will be unstoppable!
Ahh! Mudkip... Kinda hard where to start. One of the best dual-combo starter Pokemon threats in the entire game. Considering the fact that it can learn nearly twice the amount of moves than other Pokemon can get, this powerhouse is one of the starters that are often not traded away for another Pokemon. Easily the best Water-type starter in the game (Since Squirtle, Tododile, and Oshowott are solely Water Type, and cannot learn as many TMs, while Piplup is a close second), it can arguably be called the best starter Pokemon to ever. Not to add that if completely maxed out with potential, at Level 100, you can have a Swampert that knows 1) Hydro Pump, 2) Hydro Cannon, 3) Earthquake, 4) Hammer Arm... Yeah, all of those moves are learnt by leveling up (Note: To get Hydro Pump, keep Mudkip unevolved till Level 48).
Me, personally choosing Mudkip as a starter, thoroughly enjoyed its versatility, and as a Swampert its dual-combo threat along with its high Attack, and Defense stats kept it ...more
This Pokemon is cute, funny, strong and talented. So lets give it up for Mudkip. He is also clearly the greatest. He evolves into two awesome Pokemon. Marshtomp and Swampert. So lets vote for this little gold hearted Pokemon.
Really fun and cool I love Mudkip
To me squirtle seems the best starter because when it evolves into blastoise it can learn flash cannon (for ice type) then teach it ice beam (for grass type)other 2 moves you should have are surf and hydro cannon or maybe skull bash if you want it. Plus squirtle is my best starter. Water starter rule (to me).
It's only a water type making it superior to that puny mudkip. When blastoise and swampert are at level 100 blastoise's stat total is far superior. A water pokemon is supposed to have a high special not attack. Water isn't physical making mudkip overrated. Squirtle: *puts on squirtle squad shades* deal with it.
Did you ever play Gen 4? Physical/Special split? Waterfall? STEALTH ROCK? - noo7na7
Squirtle is really awesome especially with hydro pump, it is the best water attack. I choose it always as starter
Along with bulbasaur on e of my favorite starters
Bulbasaur is the cutest starter Pokemon ever! And not only is he the number 1 starter Pokemon, he's literally the number 1 Pokemon out of them all! I love him to death and the fact that he's a dual type to start off with makes him even more awesome!
It took me a while to realize how awesome his design is. He's now my favorite starter. Imagine riding a Venasaur in real life, just chilling under its tree.
Along with squirtle one of my favorite starters
Really good pokemon
There is absolutely nothing bad you can say about typhlosion, so why would there be anything bad about Cyndaquil. It's cute, strong, and kicks some serious butt when it becomes a typhlosion. You really couldn't ask for more from a starter.
I chose Cyndaquil for my soul silver starter and it destroyed all the gyms. I didn't use any other pokemon because Cyndaquil, Quilava and TYPHLOSION is so boss. While most fire starters learn Flare Blitz Typhlosion learns something even better ERUPTION. And Typhlosion can learn thunder punch to counter water types. And no one can say anything bad about the ass-kicking volcano pokemon.
I LOVE TYPHLOSION! Cyndaquil gets great speed and attacks when it becomes a Typhlosion, and it is a really effective battler.
Adorable. I voted him because of pokemon mystery dungeon.
It can learn wicked moves when it is a blaziken like brave bird, sky uppercut which is awesome against fighting and my favorite of his moves is blaze kick. Blaziken is my favorite Pokemon by far
Torchic is awesome because it evolves into Combusken then into Blaziken. Blaziken is a combination of fire and fighting which, you can't get better than that.
First off it is amazing torchic yes is hard to evolve at first but when you get off to a good start it will wipe away any other pokemon the it becomes Combusken and starts kicking ass of every pokemon in its way once you get it to Blaziken even the elite four are scared of it with blaze kick, sky uppercut and brave bird you can take down most pokemon with ease it can even beat legendary with these moves and come on he is just so cute when he is a torchic
This starter I's banned from little cup, the tourney of unevolved pokemon, and his final form is in ubers, the (2nd) highest tier in pokemon. Very fast, cute, and has that beginner appeal.
Treecko is the best, my favorite. Its a boss when it evolves all the way up to Sceptile. Watching ash sceptile its no wonder why he is a boss.
Moveset Sceptile sp atk: energyball, detect, dragon pulse and focusblast.
Moveset Sceptile atk: leaf blade, x-scissor, earthquake and dragon claw or night slash.
Than charmander, charizard is a boss. Moveset: flamethower, focusblast, airslash and dragon pulse.
Than totodile, feraligatr is a boss. Moveset: aquatail, earthquake, ice punch and Seismic Toss or crunch.
Than mudkip, swampert has only grass as a weakness. Moveset: earthquake, aquatail, icepunch, stone edge and Seismic Toss.
Some good ones I used too:
- chinchar, infernate moveset: flamethower, thunderpunch, earthquake and stone edge.
- turtwig, torterra moveset: earthquake, seedbomb, outrage and stone edge/crunch/super power.
- snivy, serperior moveset: leafblade, aquatail, dragonpulse and aerial ace.
- piplup, empoleon moveset: hydropump, ...more
He's super cool ( dinosaur) and strong, and he learns strong attacks. Pure grass best. Ash has one and is king o' forest.
my alltime fav pokemon he's like a mini ninja with powers and he is BEAST when it gets to sceptile. treecko is awesome and if you hadn't noticed he is the only starter that ends up haveing ARMS in its final evaloution! which is a lot cooler. treecko is my fav beacause it is acts cool and is super swift unlike bulbusaur, chicorita, and turtwig. Don't get me wrong those 3 are fast but not as fast as the awesome MASTER... TREECKO!
Chimchar gets my vote simply because it evolves into Infernape. What Infernape lacks in defense it makes up for in speed and good attacks. Also it's an awesome sweeper pokemon! I trained mine up to level 100 and let me tell you,1 hit KO almost every time. For the Sinnoh starters of Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum the list goes as follows in my opinion.
Torterra:The Tank, meant to take hard hits and dish out pretty hard attacks.
Empoleon:Kind of in the middle, can take decently hard hits and give somewhat hard attacks.
Infernape:The 1 hit KOer, can't take to many hard hits but can dish out very critical attacks.
Chimchar is the best pokemon because he is a monkey and monkeys are the best animals so it makes sense that he is the best pokemon and I think he is cute
I have an infernape and it's awesome so chimchar is really awesome
My favorite. absolute beast
I love, love, love oshawott especially samurott I have Pokemon diamond, heartgold and black and so far compared to all the starter Pokemon in the games samurott beats them all I also like sceptile but I way far prefer samurott please help me make him nomber one
Water types always in my opinion are the better type of the two, cause it can learn moves that take not only Fire types but grass types as well. The only true weakness is electricity.
I love Oshawott.
He is so cute and I literally had to vote for him because dewott is my favorite Pokemon
And samurott is my favorite 3th stage starter
A really adorable starter. Love Ash's oshawott.
Piplup is definitely the best in strategy. In its eldest evolutionary form, it has E-LE-VEN resistances. The Pokemon with the most resistances with Scizor. And, as another comment said above me, it can learn water-type moves as well as ice and flying-type moves, so it's pretty secured against all its weaknesses. If you've got doubts on what to do with the electric weakness, just let it learn dig.
Plus, who wouldn't want that adorable Pokémon?
Piplup is an awesome starter, Piplup's well-rounded, is awesome in evoulutions, and is cute. He also learns peck, and becomes part steel type which is good.
Piplup reminds me of pablo from backyardigans
My favorite pokemon ever
Totodile is the best. My first ever Pokemon, just makes my heart beat fast fast fast, he's so adorable. I call him Snap, and he is my best friend!
I remember when I was little, I used to always pick this pokemon. On pokemon gold - dragon13304
Look cute and cool at the same time
How is totodile so low!? It's the only Johto starter who's final evolution is cool! Chikorita is dubbed the starter that nobody wants and cydiquill is just ugly! Totodile has been able to destroy gym leader!
In the fifth generation I remember a few things about this Pokemon. One: LEAF BLADE. Two: COIL. THREE: IT'S A GRASS SNAKE, how cool is that? All jokes aside, it has one awesome set of moves that simply outperform others (add in the fact that it's still cool-looking despite the relatively ugly new fifth generation Pokemon and you have one outstanding beast! )
Contrary to most people's opinions, snivy is actually the serperior starter. It's hidden ability makes it a huge powerhouse. Also, a very smart and classy pokemon.
It's design is the best of all starters in my opinion. The best design a snake can have.
How could you NOT start out with Snivy? Powerful, elegant, and a menace to the other starters, Snivy is clearly the best. And it's a snake that doesn't look like it wants to kill you, so...
Protean. I really don't think I have to say more... But I will. He is literally the fastest starter ever with 122 base speed (as Greninja). And when you're going first and then using protean to get STAB on high-power moves like ice beam or anything else he can learn... You are hitting very hard and you can switch your type at will to cover your weaknesses. enough SAID?!?! And if you don't want to use him as a sweeper, you can give him one of his TWO signature moves, mat-block, to protect your team-mates from damage and set up in double/triple battles. Water-shuriken though? I really feel like water-shuriken doesn't work well with its low power, and I think it's a cool priority move and all, but if you get unlucky and only hit twice, you might regret having used it. Overall, Froakie/Frogadier/Greninja is most likely the best starter with his endless number of ways to be run strategically or brutally.
And yet I slay each and every single one of them with one attack. - mattstat716
Froakie is awesome. When X and Y come out this will be my starter pokemon, no hesitation. I can't wait to see what it evolves into. It will be awesome.
Froakie for #1
This evolves into Greninja so it must be cool.
Grass and ground. Ground beats almost everything grass can't beat. Mine knows earthquake, leafstorm, crunch and stone edge. PLEASE vote for turtwig!
Turtwig is the best of the best! Turtwig helped me beat the PL 47 times:) VOTE FOR TURTWIG PLEASE
SO AMAZING he is my favorite Pokemon in any game, and not just with starters. I love that turtwig is so defensive and he is also great at offense. Also, torterra is REALLY cool. Grottle is good too. BUT WOTE FOR TURTWIG
DEFINITELY! First game I ever got was platinum. Picked Chimchar. Blew through first two gyms then got screwed against ghost gym. Then Piplup. Got to gym 2 and gave up. Picked turtwig. Beat gym 3. Evolved into Torterra. Became a insanely good trainer. Partnered that thing up with luxray and NOTHING could beat me. Besides, what other Pokemon look good carrying a tree on their back?
TURTWIG IS THE BEST.
TORTERRA HELPS YOU THROUGH CYNTHIA AND MOST GYMS. You only really have to worry about ice types because ground covers fire and rock covers flying and bug. He is really strong and, if you play him like a tank and not like a striker, is easily the best Sinnho starter
Actually one if the weakest, but as charmander is number 1 I have it a vite. Very cute, and very energetic. Would be fun to raise. Also, it's evo actually swept whitney.
Adorable, but kinda bad. It depends on how you use it.
Chikorita HAS. NO. NOSE! - ZombieRush
A very cute and adorable Pokemon. You can count on this Pokemon when it cmes to battling and contest - blueguy120
If this thing is not adorable then I don't know what he is
If pokemon were real, I would definitely pick this as my starter. A pet sized pokemon that becomes human sized, caring, easy to raise, cute, smart, and evolved into an extremely intelligent Oracle-fox that can tell the future, communicate telepathically, is pretty strong, and very calm, kind, and caring. Better than a fire dragon whi will turn you into ashes as soon as you ask it to di something simple.Also, my first starter.
Cute and awesome fire starter. It Wont Be A Fire Fighting to But a fire psychic which is super cool. It also seems to be one of those pokemon that are cute at first but a complete badass later. ( LikeTyphlosion )
"Eww, a furry in rags" is what people think on sight. But this was my first starter pokemon, a powerful fox mage who isn't fire fighting. Fennikin is adorable. Fennekin is better than charmander, and delphox is much better than the trash known as non mega charizard. I do support bulbasaur and mudkip though, but it is my favorite pokemon of all time.
Pignite speed plus the effect of flame charge is a great combination
LITERALLY MY FAVE STARTER! Tepig is so adorable and gets too much undeserved hate. I love this cute piggy!
It's an adorable piggo
Emboar is op
Has trouble in the fifth gym. The only fighting type move it can know naturally by then is "Arm Thrust" (terrible against Excadrill) - Crazy_Regalia
Pikachu would make a awesome companion, the more you make train the more stronger he or she becomes and will learn new moves like Ash's Pikachu for example he learned Iron Tail, Volt Tackle and Electro Ball. I always have a Pikachu in every Pokemon generation team.
When pikachu is good charged I think he is way better than charmander
If you go to more comments for the Pikachu list, your going to see someone say that Ash was smart when choosing Pikachu. Technically, he didn't choose it. He woke up late and Pikachu was the only one left. Look it up. It's on Youtube. Anyway, Hooray for dumb Ash!
How could he not be on the list, The starter on yellow version. -
Eevee is such an amazing pokemon! When I die, I want to be reborn into the pokemon world and fulfill my dream of catching all the Eevee evolutions and keep my starter Eevee at its original form. I would also want to join the league that Subrina joined with her Eevee!
Eevee is super cute, useful, and can evolve in EIGHT different forms! If there's a better pokemon than Eevee, I haven't met it yet!
Cutest pokemon EVER
Like a potato, it's stars bland, but will eventually become something great. Cute little pokemon with an amazing z-move.
I love cats so
Why Litten is number 20 he should be in top 10 at least
My first pokemon playthrough was with litten in moon
Should be in top five, at the very least
He's not even a starter, but I vote him anyway
I love ninjas
Greninja is the best Pokémon EVER! Especially when you see ash Greninja that dude is epic
Frog ninja boi best pokemon
A gteat starter
Cheap is great
He is so adorable, and really strong. He will most likely evolve into a ground and grass type, and what ever grass can't beat, ground will! (well, other then water, but you know)
It might start as some weird clown, but it will evolve into something much better. Shame that it has such a weird gender ratio.
Cute little seal-dog.
Friend shaped Pokemon
Bird son. Deserves #1. 10/10
I would di a meme post, but this cute guy is actually a nice choice! Bonus points for a ghost evo. Too bad it has a ton of weaknesses...
He is adorable and awesome. Decidueye can learn epic ghost type moves that do tons of damage
Typhlosion is the final evolved form of Cyndaquil so I would choose it.
Not a starter.
This thing is awesOme looking, and helped in the post game of ORAS for me when I hunted the legendary and mythicals
This fire weasel is a very good starter, now that may sound horrible, but it is the best starter of johto. Its fire blast is very devistating, and its other moves can take out many grass, steel, ice and bug types to come.
TEAM GROOKEY FOR LIFE
Also good for Nessa's gym which is early in game
The Fact He's So Low Makes Me Sad... - JarJarz
That's because he's a recent entry. I'm sure he will someday go higher on the list. - Hellohi
Sobble Squad For Life!
This Should Be number 1
When it evolves into intelion Moveset:Liquidation
And some moves
you can even finish the galar region without evolving sobble and cathing wild pokemon
It was so disappointing when incineroar was announced for smash.
Decidueye jest zarombisty
Whoever wrote this can suck your mum.
Kidding me he is pro
Badass Pokemon. This Guy Could Wreck Greninja.
I Think Blastoise Is a pretty good pokemon! But on the other hand I don't think it can beat charizard. that's why Charizard is higher in the list.
but hey, that's just what I think
Please don't Roast Me
ITS Unstoppeble IT CAN BEAT CHARZARD
Cool looking design.
This isn't a starter!
Best pokemon ever must buy from stores
What! mewtwo is a starter pokemon
Mewtwo can be a starter in fanmade games - ILikePokemon
Riolu is the better than charmander, and it's a starter cough lugia cough cough gengar cough
NOT EVEN A STARTER
I would totally get Riolu as a starter if I had the option. Lucario is my favorite pokemon. - Smash64
This is what I chose for my starter in Pokemon super mystery dungeon plus he or she is really cute and then it evolves into Lucario which is really cool, and then it also has a mega.
Why shouldn't you have a cat that is huge and powerful and epic? Cats rule! although Rowlett's final evolution is my favorite because who doesn't want a huge owl that uses bow and arrow? And why does this thing have Gengar and giratina and Pikachu this is supposed to be for starters. That's all I'm saying but jeez the point is that none of the starters are supposed to be the best. They chose pokemon that are really powerful and have 3 evolutions but there aren't starters that are better than other starters or else it wouldn't be fair if you didn't know what starter is the best.
KO'D Ash's Charmeleon
Bow to the king
Does anyone know that I call his z move belly flop of doom
Um... Since when is Mareep a starter?
Yeah. I thought Mareep was just a pokemon you could just catch in games, not actually pick it for a starter - FennekinFTW
Why is this here - CNSucksNow
Mareep is god
It has three evolutions maybe that's why?
Not a starter - ILikePokemon
Um it's the alturnate starter for hoenn ILikePokemon!
...Gardevoir is not a starter. Sure, that was Wally's first Pokemon, but that was Wally. He needed that sort of Pokemon to help him...besides...Gallade is better...
I don't care that she isn't a starter. I'd pick her as a starter if I could.
LOL NOT A STARTER BUT he's STILL GOOD
Not a starter - ILikePokemon
I wish ghastly was a starter so I could naturally catch this DoPe BeAsT
I play Pokemon Platinum all day and I Recently caught a level. 55 Gengar and it's one of my Trusty Partners in Platinum. Gengar's ability is really handy as well because Poison type's weakness are Ground types, so Levitate can be a handy ability for a ghost type! Gengar is one of the best Ghost Types in Pokemon.
HE Should be Number one
This can be a starter in fanmade games - ILikePokemon
Darn I really should have chosen giratina as a starter instead of catching him later and beating the elite four over and over to farm him up to level 100
I wish this was a starter it would make platinum easy
Cute and good but not a starter like why did you put it people?
This is a starter in a game for the gameboy that's a hack but actually works on device - ILikePokemon
Vulpix is a cute smart Pokemon but its not a starter
Let's say Alolan Vulpix is Lillie's starter from anime. - Brachiozaur
Best starter ever
Strong but not a starter
I think dragonite is the best! have both dratini and it can learn both water and lightning! So when people use electric moves and think it will faint him but the device will say it wont effect it water or electric! HE IS THE BEST!
He is the boss! Dragonite is the best Pokemon ever he could beat any champion hands- down! :-)
I love scorbunny and I love how it mixed a pokemon with soccer
I love him
Scorbunny is absolutely adorable and looks like he could hold his own in a battle.
We don't know if it is strong, but we know that thing is gosh dang adorable. - ILikePokemon
Not a starter - ILikePokemon
He's the best starter Pokemon by FAR. He's obviously like an actual starter and stuff
This is no starter it's a piece of crap
I don't know why you guys say its not a starter smh
I can get legendary starters!
Why are almost none of the Pokemon posted here starters? There are 18 starters total but over 100 Pokemon here!
At the end of this scan I my high blood must have increase a lot and I'm still a kid for God's sake - waterlover
It's not a starter but I still vote.
Totally a starter
What the heck is it with not actual starter pokemon. Scraggy plus half of the pokemon on here aren't starters.
Looks amazing and is the best starter type in my opinion!
She should be number one and it's on the wrong list.
Not a starter
I give up on scrolling down and saying if it's a starter or not in fanmade games but this is not a starter it's a final evolution - ILikePokemon
What is it with all these non-starter pokemon on the list?
He's not a starter but he is my favorite!
Luxray isn't even a starter.
Rattata is not a starter, but with hyper fang... He is so OP! Idc about the evolution..
You don't find the top percentage Rattata, the top percentage Rattata finds you.
