There are no other otter pokemon

My favorite starter AND pokemon of all time! How could I NOT vote for that adorable face!

OSHAWOTT IS BEST
Don't just call it a he, remember that it can also be a girl. Lots of people have different opinions but mine is that OSHAWOTT IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE BEST. OwO

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

Adorable

Will you marry me?

Mudkip has everything that makes a Pokemon amazing. I don't even think this because of nostalgia, as my first pokemon was a Piplup in Platinum, (which I also love.) I just honestly think that Mudkip is the cutest and best Pokemon ever.

MUDKIP! MUDKIP!

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

I love cyndaquil and I LOVE Quilava

My favourite starter. Should be on top! - PowerfulPokemon

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.

I love this pokemon because it's eyes are so cute I want to hug one

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

Best generation two pokemon!

It's definitely the cutest starter of all time. - PokemonYesTeletubbiesNo

Deserves to be first! - Userguy44

She is just so cute. Don't you see those red eyes and even chikorita's voice is just sooo cute.

5 Piplup Piplup Piplup, known in Japan as Pochama, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I've seen piplup because of dawn but eventually fell for its cuteness and I stopped it from from evolving in pokemon diamond

It's design is really good in terms of cuteness and in the anime it is 20 times cuter, unlike many starters in the anime.

1. It is based off of a penguin.
2. Its voice.
3. It is constantly angry in the anime and it is hard to take it seriously so I can't not laugh.

BEST THING EVER!

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

Fennekin is adorable!
It stays adorable when it evolves too!

It's adorable. And it stays that way when it evolves, unlike mudkip.

I love him/her

I wish this pokemon had the abilty to not evolve

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

Number one cutest starter in my opinion

adorable

I love Bulbasaur. Plus, it evolves in to Ivysaur, then Venusaur, and even Mega Venusaur! I mean... LOOK AT HOW CUTE IT"S FACE IS THOUGH!

Gotta love a Bulbasaur

8 Torchic Torchic Torchic, known in Japan as Achamo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

Treecko is overrated Mudkip is an annoying cliché meme sometimes I feel Torchic is the most underrated of the 3 because everybody loves Sceptile and people praise Swapert for having a super high base stat total, but Blaziken is the best one! Even though Fire is weak against Rock I beat Roxanne super easily with only my Torchic/Combusken!

Are you kidding me Torchic is too cute and is not even in top 5?!

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

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

Pokémon Talk, anyone?

2nd Favorite Pokemon!

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

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

Rowlet is the best starter ever

How is he not at the absolute top look at his adorable little bowtie and innocent look

I always choose Rowlet!

11 Turtwig Turtwig Turtwig, known in Japan as Naetle, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Turtwig is so cute

Hot

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.

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

Cuteness + Coolness

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

Best mon

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.

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

My favourite cutest

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!

17 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.

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

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

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

it cute

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 cute!

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

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

Okay, how can you not think that it's adorable? Like, come on.

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

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

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!

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

I love Eevee and fennekin

Same as my claim for pikachu, but the rival of the player starts with eevee instead. - AdamAlkynian

Cute!

Eevee deserves #2 - Bigandbagguy

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

Totally number one. It's THE CUTEST! Kinda have a crush on its last evolve greninja.

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.

22 Chimchar Chimchar Chimchar, known in Japan as Hikozaru, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Chimchar is cuter than Pikachu but Pikachu is stronger

THE BEST STARTER IN THE WORLD!

You can never have anything cuter then chimchar

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

23 Treecko Treecko Treecko, known in Japan as Kimori, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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