The Top Ten

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

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!

Mudkip is cute, no doubt. Having based off a Axolotl, of COURSE it'd be cute! Mudkip is my favorite starter too, if I could, I'd choose this as my starter for each and every game.

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

Yes Oshawott is my favorite but its line of evolution sucks though ok I'm just being truthful.

Should be number one - KalloFox34

I love mudkip BUT it is cuter than mudkip

I just love oshawott's shell and pissed face.

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

My favourite starter. Should be on top! - PowerfulPokemon

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

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.

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.

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!

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).

V 59 Comments
6 Fennekin Fennekin Fennekin, known in Japan as Fokko, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I love fennekin it's powerful to!

Two words. Best ever

I'm SO MAD! FENNEKIN SHOULD BE #1!

V 84 Comments
7 Bulbasaur Bulbasaur Bulbasaur, known in Japan as Fushigidane, is the first Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

I mean, just look at him

Should be higher. - henry_danger_is_great

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?

V 32 Comments
9 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!

Rowlets so cute I like the way it snuggles in backpacks

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

2nd Favorite Pokemon!

Why is mudkip first? squirtle should be there.

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

V 27 Comments
13 Chespin Chespin Chespin, known in Japan as Harimaron, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

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.

14 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!

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

16 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.

V 20 Comments
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.

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!

Really Number 23! Come on guys! Popplio is SO cute, Really Playful, AND DA BLUE

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

it cute

It's cute!

I love him but not feraligator - lynxa

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!

19 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

I love him, he's so chubby and cute - lynxa

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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

Treecko is so cute and is the only starter that doesn't have the awkward mid-evolution stage. 10/10 the best

Cute! - lynxa

#01 BEST STARTER EVER

23 Bayleef Bayleef

Bayleef is not a starter - Jaker747

24 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.

35 Ralts Ralts

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.
