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

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.

It's a blue turtle that fires water, when evolved into Blastoise it has guns sticking out of it's shell!

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

He deserves this in my opinion squirtle is the best pokemon ever

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

Why is eevee on this list?

Teach mudkip ice type move when it evolve it will be unbeatable

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

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

Sammurott is just so Cool

6 Torchic Torchic

Believe me or not it's unbeaten Pokemon

He is powerful when he is mega blaziken

I have this card. Shes cute!

Torchic is the best on ever

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

Bob Sag3t is the best jawbreaker since Jerry Seinfeld and we should all watch more Full House because the Saget has a full heart. Oh yeah bob saget flame3 wheel yeah use eruption yeah yeah

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

The starter in heart gold gold soul silver silver and crystal

Bob Saget is my favorite power ranger. HE just wrocks. not in the dwayne way, though. all those skinny bitches in the club be like: I LIKE CHARTARD>

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

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.

I think Snivy should be first, I have a serperior and I used used it to beat all of my gym leaders and the elite four easy

Snivy last evolution is serperior I try using serperior then I always win

9 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.

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

10 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

This tiny tortoise evolves being able to defeat an Infernape at lvl72 vs89

The Contenders

11 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.

He should be number 1

The starter in diamond pearl and platnium

Piplup is socute he shuld be in the first you see the cute eyyyes ideots
nitwits bososs blue black cute eyes

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

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.

An adorable beast, compare this to a dumb dragon. Pure awesome and adorable.

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

Charmander this mudkip

14 Chickorita

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

Chickorita used to be my fave Pokemon

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.

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

I think totodile is number one, but anyways totodile is awesome and cute and will turn into a beast at level 36

A starter in heart gold gold soul silver silver and crystal

Best starter ever. I grew up with pokemon silver and I always choose this pokemon and it is in the middle pokeball. That's why WATER RULES!

Totodile wins in front of all starters

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

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.

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!

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?

its bad - Mustafa08

Cheep in all the way doods

Starter from mystery dungeon

19 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.

I'll cut this up to make bacon. OH YEAH, MR. KRABS
