Bulbasaur all the way for me. Not only is it my favorite of the three main starters, it is also effective against most of the gym leaders, especially the earlier ones. Charmander and Squirtle are only good against a few each. 
 
Darn, I put an extra question mark at the end of the question. This'll keep me up all night.

Bulbasaur is the only correct answer to this question.

#4 Posted by ShadowKnight508 (659 posts) -

For Pokemon Red, Blue, LeafGreen, and FireRed, I picked Squirtle.
For Pokemon Yellow, Pikachu is the only choice xD

Charmander, since he turns into a goddamn dragon. Granted, you have to go through the phase where you resist making "Charma-charma-charma-charma-charma-charmeleon" jokes before you get to the dragon, but damn it, Chraizard is badass. Not as badass as Typhlosion, but still fairly badass.

Always Be Charmander

While the quoted statement is probably inaccurate, it does hold true for me.

Charmander is awesome therefore I chose Charmander.

#9 Posted by TooWalrus (13137 posts) -

I usually liked Bulbasaur. A few times I picked Charmander, but then you had to level a butterfree to beat Brock... I played those games a lot.

Always go for charmander... Charizard did freaking 100 damage in the card game!

This is true, I always too cyndaquil for Silver Version.

I played through red and blue so many damn times, there really wasn't a favorite starter, but I did like Charmander more because he was supposedly the harder one to go with.

#13 Posted by A_Cute_Squirtle (679 posts) -

..Do you really need to ask? 

#14 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

Most of my friends picked Charmander because he's fire and fire is hot. lols. But me, I picked Bulbasuar due to seeing the most evolved form looked the coolest to me. 

#15 Posted by JJOR64 (18909 posts) -

Squirtle for me.  I always pick the water starters.

#16 Posted by Animasta (14648 posts) -

I think it was squirtle because I just finished watching the episode of the pokemon anime where squirte put on the cool glasses and acted like a dick

#17 Posted by KarlPilkington (2684 posts) -

WHO THE FUCK CHOSE BULBASAUR OVER SQUIRTLE!!

#18 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Bulbasaur, as my brother had picked Charmander and my sister Squirtle. 
Not to say I dislike Bulbasaur, he's freaking awesome, although I'm not entirely sure he's as good as a Charmander...

#19 Posted by XTraFries (209 posts) -
@jasondaplock: 
 
Nothing is more accurate than Bulbasaur

Yep, especially since I was 8, and dragons were the coolest thing I could think of. Wait a second, dragons are still the coolest thing I can think of. 
#21 Posted by ThePhantomnaut (6186 posts) -

I was a Bulbasaur/Charmander kid. I hated water Pokemon.

#22 Posted by Nasar7 (2606 posts) -

I played OG red and picked charmander. He's on the freaking box.

#23 Posted by Pepsiman (2459 posts) -

Proper answer is Totodile, no matter what generation you're referring to. Also, did he break the thread title character limit?

#24 Edited by Sumbog (481 posts) -

Charamander of course, he's cute as hell  and breaths freakin fire! The only choice in my opinion.
 
Edit: He also became a dragon, so ya.

#25 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

I think Charmander was my first Pokemon ever. 
 
All the way back in Red Version.

#26 Posted by imsh_pl (3295 posts) -

Charmander obviously. This was an easy one since he can easily gain level in the early game when he's your first pokemon, due to him having ember and most of wild pokemon being grass or bug.

#28 Edited by Tactical_Kill (1695 posts) -

Well I had Yellow version so I kinda, you know, had no choice. I still remember how much of a pain it was to beat the first gym when you have an electric pokemon as your starter.

#29 Posted by Seiken_Enhasa (101 posts) -

 Squirtle. Always Squirtle.

#30 Posted by Raven_Sword (3438 posts) -

Holy topic title Batman! Anyway, i think I always picked charizard. i always picked the fire pokemon for my first palythrough of a Pokemon game.
#31 Edited by NekuCTR (1663 posts) -

Bulbasaur. Is this even a question? I mean he's number-fucking-1 for Christs sake, and he's good against the first 2 gyms.

#32 Posted by iSylence (345 posts) -

It was a very long time ago, but I think I probably chose Charmander because Charizard was (and is still) one of my favourite Pokemon.
 
Also, just throwing it out there, I think the most powerful Pokemon of all is Metagross.

#33 Posted by ___pocalypse (561 posts) -

First time ever playing Pokemon (Pokemon Red) I chose charmander, and he was my first lvl 100 pokemon. I think I chose squirtle in Pokemon silver, and now I prefer plant types.
 
No fire type could ever live up to my charmander, which 10(ish?) year old me named Lloyd. Sadly, though my original copy of Red still works, I had transferred him to my Silver cartridge, and that became corrupted at some point so he is gone forever :( RIP Lloyd.

#34 Posted by GlenTennis (3144 posts) -

Charmander, because you felt like such a boss after beating 2 gym leaders who were strong to your pokemon.

#35 Posted by Lavapotamus (199 posts) -

 Damn, Squirtle is seriously the least picked among the first three? I figured it was Bulbasaur for sure.

#36 Posted by Sulla (49 posts) -

Bulbasaur the first time I played, because the manual suggested that for beginners as it was the strongest starter against the first two gym leaders :p. Charmander was my second choice, and I can't remember if I ever chose Squirtle.

#37 Posted by animathias (1170 posts) -

It may not have been the smartest choice, but I loved my Squirtle. Sigh. This thread reminds me of the good old days, when I was min/maxing Pokémon (and still getting it wrong because I was a kid, and you know what? eff "perfection," Squirtle was awesome.)

#38 Posted by discost3w (152 posts) -

I had both yellow and blue and chose squirtle in blue

#39 Posted by RecSpec (3763 posts) -

I had blue so I picked Squirtle. 
 
Fucking turtle could get CANNONS.

#40 Posted by StarvingGamer (8000 posts) -

I had pokemon blue so I picked squirtle.

#41 Edited by ShaunassNZ (2128 posts) -

I had Blue, I voted Bulbasaur because, in Leaf Green I chose him and I mostly pick the grass type because my other friends went for the others and i had to be different (plus grass beats the first Pokemon gym leader easily, then you just grind the levels from there). But, I did chose Charmander in Blue when i first got it, got it to lvl 100 and was pissed because it couldn't use fly :(

#42 Posted by TheWarrior8806 (12 posts) -

I've always been a bulbasaur fan myself.... He was and still is my favorite starter with cyndaquil in close second. Damn I wish I could find my old copy of red version.

Took the words right out of my mouth.

Squirtle is my go-to.

#45 Posted by fenixREVOLUTION (735 posts) -

9 out of 10 times, Charmander.

#47 Posted by FirstBossCutman (65 posts) -

Pikachu... because Yellow. I have fond memories of a Charizard though, and I don't think I got it through a trade. Man, trading brings back memories. Did anyone else find it damn near impossible to trade without a wire using the little sensors things on the top of your Gameboy Colors?

#48 Posted by Gilsham (293 posts) -

Charmander son only fire pokemon for ages

#49 Posted by HaltIamReptar (2029 posts) -

My logic was this: if somebody hurled a ball of fire, water, or grass at me, what would hurt the most.
 
Fucking Charmander!

#50 Posted by Skald (4367 posts) -

Squirtle.
