Top Pokemon Regions With the Best Starter Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Hoenn

Whether you choose the predecessor of the fastest Grass Type, an offensive powerhouse, or a Pokemon with one weakness that it can cover, your present from Professor Birch will slay hordes of Pokemon.

You can't really go wrong with your choice. Blaziken introduced to the fire-fighting starters while also knowing some good flying moves like Brave Bird. Sceptile is the fastest Grass Type starter in the game and still has a respectable Sp. Atk stat. Swampert has the highest total base stats out of all starters ever and only has one weakness: Grass. Whenever I play in this region I just choose my starter off of what other Pokemon I want to catch; none are really better than the other- and they're all the best.

A fire chicken that knows karate, the fastest grass starter and and the best water type starter - kian

Hoenn starters are very strong, whether it is grass, water or fire. All the three straters can mega evolve. Don't forget that Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are there. Also in this region, the battles became decent. Johto, in opinion, is not that good.

2 Sinnoh

I can't believe I had to stroll this far down this list for Sinnoh. I love Piplup so much! Turtwig is adorable and unique, and Chimchar evolves into a total powerhouse!

Every starter from Sinnoh is brilliant. Every. Single. One. Grass and Ground, Water and Steel and Fire and Fighting make excellent combinations of types. Hands down.

How can Sinnoh starters NOT be first? Everything about them was just amazing. They were all powerhouses, especially Infernape.

Sinnoh is the best best best best!
It should be on no. 1!

Best region no one can choose starter between charizard and blastoise are great and can destroy anything

Charizard is a beast and probably one of the all time best pokemon. Blastoise and Venusaur are amazing too and the megas are incredible. They're all permanent members of my team!

The only region where I cannot decide which of the three Pokemon too choose

Kanto is the first ever pokemon world. That is the reason that I choose for kanto because of squirtle/wartortle/blastoise. Squirtle is my favorite starter

4 Johto

Only region with "purebred" starters. Can't wait until mega feraligatr (water/fighting? ) and typhlosion (maybe fire and poison? )

The only gen with all pure starters but 2/3 becoming some of the strongest starters ever, with the other becoming a healing nightmare, I got to go with this one

I don't get why people don't like this trio. It has the most balance between them, and some awesome designs. They're also pure too, and I love all three. - KinglerMaster

Best Grass type other than Hoenn,Unova,and s3 Kalos

5 Kalos

All fully evolved starters gain another type making them have more strengths but a few more weaknesses as well.

Delphox is the only good one

Al of 'em are good! Even Chesnaught can battle with the best of them.

Greninja is awesome they gotta make a remake

6 Unova

I can't be the only one who likes all starters, can I? Just look at Oshawott and Snivy. And Tepig isn't as bad as people make him out to be.

Probably my favourite starter Pokemon region. I mean my favourite starter Pokemon region

Best. Region. Ever. Oh and you, griffindoge are an idiot. No questions asked. Good Bye.

My favorite badass starter IS Samurott

(Thanks for pointing it out;-)

I agree that Popplio is the best and most adorable out of the three, but I don't understand why people like Litten and Rowlet so much, but I still like them all.

While I like Litten and LOVE Popllio, I find Rowlet kinda overrated. My vote goes to Hoenn.

I LOVEE popplio!
I do not care the slightest bit that others hate this cute lil' sea lion. (rowlet's sooo overrated) ):
I mean come on! A cute little seal/sea lion! It's ADORABLE!
I also like the design of litten and rowlet too!

8 Ransei

Ransei isn't even a region... Is it in a Pokemon fan game or spinoff? I tend to stick to the main series games, so correct me if you wish.

Thanks Hikari =) I might check it out sometime, considering Vaporeon is one of my all time favourites!

9 Orange Islands

They are a kind of region

Unova's starters are a little weaker. Kalos is quite good,sinnoh and hoenn are great,johto
has a powerhouse but nothing can beat the original kanto
