2 Squirtle Squirtle Squirtle, known as Zenigame in Japan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. It was originally conceived by Game Freak's character development team and finalized by Chaniah Pantry. It is a squirrel-turtle hybrid .

I love squirtle because of the anime's opening scene. He may be a prankster but he is very strong and evolves into blastoise and he has cannons.

Squirtle looks sweet, and he has a good defense due to his shell!

His shell is as a rock also they say he is a very good Pokemon.

Absoulutley adorable it's also my starter evolves into Blastoise and is really strong.

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

I really like Mudkip simply because he's awesome. Not to mention his immunity to electric-type moves when he evolves

I personaly would pick charmander but this Pokemon started my heart for beating Pokemon in to mind

I didn't catch Kyorge And I still beat the Elite 4 and Chapion and I picked Mudkip

4 Oshawott Oshawott Oshawott, Dewott, and Samurott, are three Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise that are linked through evolution.

This thing will evolve into a beast at level 36. It kills everything, and is incredibly strong! I'm so glad I always choose Oshawott! - Goatworlds

Personally I prefer Snivy but Oshawott is still cute though

Oshawott has a ton of different moves it can learn. Like ice fang rock smash and many more. It also is a beast

It be like yo yo I'm a water type biatches look at my shell it's yellow like your credit debt yep yo I'm the motha watt

Cool Evolutions and Only Single type Pokemon, So few types are only effective.

The starter in heart gold gold soul silver silver and crystal

6 Torchic Torchic

Believe me or not it's unbeaten Pokemon

He is powerful when he is mega blaziken

Torchic was my first Pokemon ever, and he has NEVER LET ME DOWN. I have never lost a battle with him on my team! He has always been a great Pokemon, and when he evolved he still was the amazing companion I found in a Pokemon. He took out the Elite Four by himself. VOTE FOR TORCHIC! GET THIS AMAZING Pokemon UP TO #1! 😜

7 Froakie Froakie

I love how everybody decides to be a troll and puts starters from the non main series games

I think froakie can do better he is a good Pokemon

This guy looks a bit like a frog suit in MARIO but Greninga is an absolute BOSS.I chose this little dude every time.

Forget Every starter apart from Froakie Frogidaer and greninja also ash greninja FROAKIE IS number 1

8 Snivy Snivy

Snivy is very good, but is very overlooked as an "Overrated Pokemon". Come on. Oshawott is cute, but seriously, I think that my Serperior is better with very good attacks. Got past the Psychic AND Ghost type elite fours with ease.

Although oshawott is my favorite out of their bunch, I still really like Snivy. I always have. There's just something about it I like.

The best Pokemon and the smartest one but others like charmander

Cuter than pikachu. Pikachu looks like a constipated mouse

9 Chimchar Chimchar

I love Chimchar's ability because it is super strong! When you give it attention and care it is even stronger as it evolves into Monferno. Then even stronger into Infernape! Infernapes blaze is stronger than the rest because it is highly developed and it is already super powerful without it! That's why I vote chimchar all the way

Chimchar is my favorite starter ever and he passes charmander as the best starter in my opinion that's why he gets my vote

Cyndaquil? Oshawott? Charmander? Chimchar is no doubt way better then them

My Favorite Pokemon! Has an awesome Movepool, and it's Evolutions are Fire/Fighting type!

The Contenders

11 Turtwig Turtwig

Turtwig is one of the most underrated starters in Gen 4. People don't choose him mainly because he's a grass type but look past that, leaf storm, earthquake, Wood Hammer, Synthesis, Giga Drain. This thing is a tank. Where's the love for Turtwig

Fact I l ike just torterra well too bad

Turtwig evolves into a bulky super strong torterra

12 Fennekin Fennekin Fennekin is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Fennekin is a Fire type Pokemon, and one of the starter Pokemons in the Kalos Region. It is classified as the Fox Pokemon. Instead of eating snacks, Fennekin chew on twigs. It can be temperamental, but does it best more.

Hey, Idiot! They did not rip-off Vulpix to make Fennekin. Would you say they ripped-off Pikachu to make Emolga? Or ripped-off Pichu to make Plusle? Or ripped-off Arcanine to make Entei? Or Mewtwo to make Lucario? By the way, Fennekin is so cute!

Fennekin is so fab! It's the perfect choice for a Pokemon Performer! (And fabulous trainers)

I read that in Serena's voice. It's also a good choice for connoisseurs. - RiverClanRocks

Fennekin was my pick for gen 6. She wrecks face on a daily basis.

It evolves into a fox with legs, though I like its first stage.

13 Treeko

Nobody added treeko? Guess ill do it. Treeko is awesome as it can learn super powerful moves for a starter as it can learn pound, solar beam, bullet seed, as well as a range of Tms. Also ash had a super cool one. Go treeko.

This is spelled wrong. It is treecko not treeko. That might be why no one is voting for it.

Best grass type starter & now it can mega evolve for protection from fire

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

Oh bulbasaur. I love you. but why does nobody choose you? Why is it always charmander? People are under the llusion that charmander is the best starter. Why? Why can they not see that charmander sucks? I didn't evolve my bulbasaur, and by the end of the game, my bulbasaur was level 80. Bulbasaur is the absolute best!

Oshawott is my favorite Pokémon, however...Bulbasaur is my second favorite. I hate how underrated he is. I'm glad Oshawott and Snivy is the most popular out of their trio, but Bulbasaur...? No. Why not? He's amazing. Once he's Venusaur, sleep power and leech seed can be easily abused. He's a good sun sweeper with chlorophyll and an awesome tank with thick fat. But that's not why I like him The Bulbasaur line just appeals to me.

Why isn't bulbasaur number 1? I know that bulbasaur is pretty much the only starter I love why is it always charmander or charizard I believe that bulbasaur is the cutest and venusaur is the strongest why isn't this creature loved?

Bulbasaur may not be as "awesome" as the squirtle line and the overrated lizard, but at least he's not afraid of thunderstorms and showers. Bulbasaur is one of my second favorite starter Pokémon and second favorite Pokémon, period. Oshawott beats him, but Bulbasaur is my favorite out of the Kanto trio.

16 Chickorita

Bayleef has always been my favorite Pokemon and Chikorita is the first step on the way to getting one.

I had to vote just to say this...

But Chikorita is bad. All the gyms absolutely dominates it! Even Megamium can't win against one of them!

Just got that off my chest.

17 Chespin Chespin

Chespin is the best starter ever

High defense? Tick. High attack to follow? Tick. Move set for a sweeping tank beast? Tick.
Cheep in all the way doods

18 Tepig Tepig

Is awesome and when evolves into pignite it's stats are higher than all the other stage 1 pokemon!

The starter in black white black 2 and white 2

I actually like all three Unova starters. Tepig is my least favorite, but still, I like him, AND his evolutions. Tepig is extremely underrated, poor guy.
