Top Ten Cutest Starter Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Mudkip Mudkip Mudkip, known in Japan as Mizugorou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Cutest Pokemon ever, never mind the starters. Mudkip is the perfect Pokemon when it comes to cuteness. Cute look, cute mannerisms, cute voice, cute everything! Mudkip should be #1! He is the best. I LOVE Mudkip so much!

As my first starter Pokemon, I can clearly say it is the cutest. With its cute little smile and stubby blue legs as well as that adorable tail, I'm voting Mudkip to be the cutest starter.

Mudkip! Awesome! Cute! Friendly! Most of all my favourite starter and Pokemon! YAY!

Cutest pokemon ever and marshtomp and swampert are alaso cuta and cool. mudkip is my favurite pokem0n!

2 Oshawott Oshawott Oshawott, known in Japan as Mijumaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Oshawott's truly the cutest starter Pokemon I have ever seen. He has a cute little scallop on his tummy that he will grab and wave around, he is the perfect shape, the perfect shade of blue, and just all around adorable. (I may just be biased because he was my first starter Pokemon ever... Just maybe.) But he is totally the cutest!

I like oshawott the most because he is the first starter Pokemon I ever saw and because he's the best starter in Pokemon black and white and the 2nd best water starter and because he's the first best of being cute

Oshawott truly deserves number one :). If you have every played pokepark 2: wonders beyond, that game should prove all it needs for Oshawott to be number one. In the game he was brave, smart, and he always stood up for Sivy, Tepig, and Pikachu. In white and black he always stood in my party ready to kick some serious butt.

Should be number one - KalloFox34

3 Cyndaquil Cyndaquil Cyndaquil, known in Japan as Hinoarashi, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

A little and fluffy Pokemon with adorable eyes, that evolves into a cute little thing called Quilava, and then in a strong Volcano Pokemon ready to explode! So it's cute, but it can also become strong.

When I hear cyndaquil voice I'm like Ah so cute. I like everything about cyndaquil but what I like the most is that it shoots fire from its back and when it's using fire blast. I thought cyndaquil would be number one and I was right.

Cyndaquil is the cutest starter I mean just look at it. If the fire was fluff wouldn't you want to go over and cuddle it.

My favourite starter. Should be on top! - PowerfulPokemon

4 Chikorita Chikorita Chikorita, known in Japan as Chicorita, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Isn't Chikorita cute? With the cute eyes, it's green skin that is the color of spring leaves, and it's very big and cute leaf on its head! It should be #1! And Bayleef is so cute too! Bayleef in the anime has a crush on ash which makes it even more cute. And Meganium has those cute flower on its neck which I think represents beauty and grace

Cuteness for the first day in a year has learned the most and more difficult than writing poetry. Ezza and the new law enforcement officers are the only one that has the right time for a man who is in a position of a political leader and the character is the most common sense that the most common sense is that he has learned to be the first person in a sense of faith in a character who is the first to unscramble a man in a relationship that is not a good idea. Ezza has a sense when the new age will make you look a better man with your new book book on a new year with your family members in your new life as you have been able your son in the new way for a book. Iezza is a great man and a man who is a man who has learned a lot of things.

The voice, the tiny leaf on its head, EVERYTHING! I really do agree, its crush on Ash makes it even cuter! This is exactly why Johto is my favorite region!

Deserves to be first! - Userguy44

5 Piplup Piplup Piplup is a starter Pokémon in the Sinnoh region. It is the Water-type Starter. It resembles penguin. It was also the first penguin Pokémon to be created.

Honestly, this might be for sentimental reasons, but Piplup was both creative (there had been no penguin Pokemon prior) and adorable, growing into a powerhouse that has only become stronger with the addition of fairy and it's weakness to steel (still iffy on that fact, correct me if needed).

My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Diamond and I chose Piplup because he was the by far the cutest Sinnoh starter (sorry to you Turtwig and Chimchar lovers) and I was seven so cuteness was the only factor that mattered. I love him so much!

PIPLUP is my fave Pokemon he should be at least in the top three because he/she is adorable and really creative because nobody thinks about a lot so he should get attention so other people could show penguins some love like I do

Too clumsy - PowerfulPokemon

6 Fennekin Fennekin Fennekin, known in Japan as Fokko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Fennekin is the cutest Pokemon ever and extremely strong in battling. It should totally be at number 1!

Fennekin is the type of Pokemon which is cute at first but evolves into something weird

Just look at Fennekin it's so unbelievably adorable who ever thinks otherwise is evil. Just imagine holding that cutie in your arms the thought of it is just to cute I could die.

Look at that face you'd be my choice anytime😝

7 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known as Fushigidane in Japan, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I think Bulbasaur is adorable. It's just so sad, give Bulbasaur some love nobody cares. He's also the best choice in Pokemon red and blue, gym wise. He's awesome live with it.

Bulbasaur pokedex entry number 1. This little guy has captured the hearts of many trainers (including me) the adorable little bulb and those cute eyes easily the cutest from my opinion. And besides everyone says venusaur is ugly, however it's not it is a beautiful grass type Pokemon.

Bulbasaur is the cutest one of them all and because of its cuteness it is the only starter I love look in its eyes and I am saying that you will choose it as your starter the very next day and in Pokemon X and Y it has the cutest little face! It should be number one!

I mean, just look at him

8 Torchic Torchic

He's so cute and I want to hug him! I love it when he does his ember attacks. I don't know why you would bother checking which is cutest!

This is to cute to look at he should be in the top 10

Chickens for life! As the best animal ever, Torchic is a great representation of chickens! WHO'S WITH ME?

Love the way he ages. From cute Torchic to the big bird Blaziken

9 Rowlet Rowlet Rowlet, known in Japan as Mokuroh, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Rowlet is possibly the cutest possible starter, period. Not only does it dress fashionably, but it has the cutest and fluffiest aspects.

Look at Ash's Rowlet in the anime. You can't tell me that isn't one of the cutest things you ever seen, like come on. - Rue

He's SOOO cute! I love how he's round, it just adds to the cuteness overload! WAY cuter than Cyndaquil because he's so CUTE! Ever since Gen 6, Cyndaquil has been the most ridiculous looking starter. (The fire on his back has been removed)

I always choose Rowlet!

10 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known in Japan as Zenigame, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Squirtle is the cutest Pokemon ever? Isn't he in the top 10 instead of the top 12?

Squirtle is the best starter pokemon by far and my personal favorite pokemon of all time

I Love Squirtle Its always Been my Starter Pokemon. I'm Just In LOVE With Water type pokemon

2nd Favorite Pokemon!

The Contenders

11 Turtwig Turtwig

Turtle Pokemon were always cute, and Turtwig is not an exception. Just look at that pretty little face and body!

Turtwig is pretty awesome! I picked him for my starter during my diamond play through. He never disappointed me. Well, until I got to the ice gym (I should've looked at a type chart before I tried this gym)... But besides that, he dominated.

Turtwig deserves at least the 5 or 3 spot. Because he may not be the number 1 but he can always do better. I picked him for my starter and he never seized to amaze me.

12 Litten Litten Litten, known in Japan as Nyabby, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

No other cat looked appealing to me before but when I saw Litten I thought it was adorable plus Fire type starters are my favorite!

As a person who loves fire Pokemon and has 4 cats makes me definitely want this Pokemon

Litten is such a cute little kitty! Just hope it isn't going to stand up on two legs.

Get lit like litten B)

13 Chespin Chespin Chespin, known in Japan as Harimaron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Chespin so cute with its lil hat!

This Pokemon is so cute with its red nose and three triangles and I always like triangles and it jacket and its face.

Cheapens face is one of the cutest things I have seen on earth.

Come on! How can anyone Norbert love this adorable cutie?! He should at least be 2nd!

14 Tepig Tepig

Tepig was my very first pokemon and so I think he's the best pokemon and therefore, he's the cutest

Tepig is the best starter in my opinion. I've got him in a game and now he's Emboar. Plus, he's a cutie!

Even THOU I don't now what tepig looks like I bet. It. Looks super. Cute!

15 Charmander Charmander Charmander, known in Japan as Hitokage, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I like him but I don't love I would poke him thou.

All of the number 1234567910 pokemon sucks but this guy is a beast to evolve its easy to evolve

Seriously? Charmander is the best and the the cutest of everything don't mess with the charmander

That picture didn't help lol - Bigandbagguy

16 Snivy Snivy Snivy, known in Japan as Tsutarja, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

An adorable STARTER. At first it's kinda weak but just get it high level, and it is OP. It's also pretty cute. If you don't let it evolve (well I don't play often so I don't know how to do that) but servine doesn't have as powerful moves.

Doesn't look friendly in anime but has a big heart and is really loyal to her companions

She looks like a mean pokemon but she is still cute. I don't know why she is called a grass snake.

Who doesn't like an adorable, lazy, baby snake?

17 Popplio Popplio Popplio, known in Japan as Ashimari, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Popplio is the cutest of all starters! I don't understand why all the hate.

Why only #20!? Think back to when you first choose your starter in sun/moon. When you select which one you want to pick, both Rowlet and Litten have the exact same expression when you choose them. But popplio looks up at you with these big, adorable eyes and floppy ears and smiles at you when they are chosen, unlike Rowlet/Litten!

This is my favorite from Sun and Moon. It's so cute

Popplio is NOT an ugly clown. popplio is a cutie pie of cute - Bigandbagguy

18 Pikachu Pikachu Pikachu are a species of Pokémon, fictional creatures that appear in an assortment of video games, animated television shows and movies, trading card games, and comic books licensed by The Pokémon Company, a Japanese corporation.

Pikachu is actually NOT a starter Pokemon. Ash got Pikachu because it was all Oak had left over to give, because all the starters were gone by the time Ash got there. You can also find Pikachu in the wild (pretty early in any game too). Pikachu also doesn't fit into the Water Fire Grass section. These are things that a Pokemon must have to be considered a real starter Pokemon. That's why Pikachu is NOT A STARTER.

Actually, Pikachu was a starter. In Pokemon Yellow, he is the starter. - ShinyDragonite

Pikachu is adorable. his cheeks look so cute and his mouth is so cute. There is nothing that isn't cute about pikachu. IT SHOULD BE NUMBER1!

Pikachu is the cutest Pokemon he is the cutest because his red chubby cheeks I wish he was here I wanna give the biggest hug

Pokemon Yellow had the player start with pikachu, and so does pokemon let's go pikachu, so actually he is. - AdamAlkynian

19 Eevee Eevee Eevee, known in Japan as Eievui, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Eevee isn't a starter for the same reasons Pikachu isn't. (1. Eevee can be found in the wild) (2. Eevee is not a water, fire, or grass type Pokemon) There are many other reasons too

Eevee is technically a starter Pokemon in Pokemon : Gale of Darkness. I say technically because it's like Pikachu, you don't have the choice to pick a starter. The only thing that makes it different from Pikachu is that you can evolve the Eevee to any eeveelution in the gen 3 days. - Rue

I can't remember what it's called but there is a game where Eevee is a starter

20 Totodile Totodile Totodile, known in Japan as Waninoko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

How can you even compete with Totodile! He's the best, his little face is the cutest ever, but still looks tough. He's the best, his design is flawless and his eyes can melt anyone's heart!

It's a little blue crocodile with a huge smile, 'enough said. He should at least be in the top five, I think.

Why is it not Higher! He is the best and the cutest, Have you even heard his voice from the anime?

it cute

21 Froakie Froakie Froakie, known in Japan as Keromatsu, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Froakie is the cutest starter! He should be way higher on this list. Just look at those big eyes and cute fluffy frubbles.

Frokie is so cute. It's a bubble frog what better chance can you get then that.

This is my pokemon. I chose it in X and Super Mystery Dungeon.

22 Treecko Treecko

Worlds best shiny starter, that red tail stands out with that beautiful blue body. in my opinion, deserves #1

Treecko looks more cool than cute.

I agree with the guy that says its shiny is the best. Treecko's shiny colors are so awesome!

Treecko doesn't need to be cute. It is just awesome!

23 Chimchar Chimchar Chimchar is a monkey-like Pokémon from the Sinnoh region. It's a Fire-type starter resembling a chimpanzee. It evolves into Monferno, who evolves into Infernape.

Cute strong and its final evolution definitely gets the job done. What else could you ask for in a starter.

In my game Chimchar took down everyone and it is cute so I think it should be in the top 5.

Chimchar should be in the top 10, I mean look at him.. I would cuddle him all day if I could.

24 Alolan Raichu Alolan Raichu

Lol totally starter

LoL! He ugly!

25 Pichu Pichu Pichu is an Electric type Baby Pokémon introduced in Gen. 2. It evolves into Pikachu. It is in the in undiscovered egg group, since it's a baby Pokémon. It is No. 172 in the Pokedex. It can be called a joke character in Super Smash Bros. Melee, because of its awful stats and weak moves.

Adorable should be #1 on the top ten cutest pokemon list but doesn't belong on this list

Its other form evolves into a starter *shrugs*

Cuter than Pikachu

Not a starter! :(

32 Ralts Ralts

34 Sylveon Sylveon Sylveon, known in Japan as Nymphia, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Shes adorable but not a starter

Cute, but ain't a starter sorry - lynxa


Stupid, the eevee is also starter but at 1 and 3 generation (Pokémon yellow and Pokémon collosium.) But sylveon is a 6 generation, which is eevee is not obtainable as starter but as wild, so what's the point if this is a starter?

Ugh... Pikachu is the starter, not Dedenne. I honestly find it forgettable. Torchic and Chikorita are cuter =3

The cutest thing ever! I just love Dedenne, and I know this is for starters, but I don't care. I am a big fan of Dedenne.

WHY IS DEDENNE NAT IN the TOP TEN?! I LOVE DEDENNE! #Dedenne(don't boss meh saying "Dedenne isn't a starter")
