What was the first Pokemon game you played and who did you pick as your starter?

#1 Posted by DarthOrange (3864 posts) -

Despite watching the show when it began and collecting the cards I didn't actually play any of the games until after I had already stopped paying attention to it and the game was recommended to me by a friend. My first game was Sapphire and I started out with Treecko. Despite my love of Charizard, Sceptile always holds a special place in my heart. His False Swipe helped me catch many Pokemon.

Since I got a yellow Gameboy Color with Pokemon Yellow, I didn't have much of a choice. It had to be tha 'Chu.

Think it was Bulbasaur, but I'm not entirely certain.

I got Pokemon back in like 2nd grade or something cause my friend was playing it and I thought it looked fun. He had Red and picked Charmander so naturally I bought Red and picked Charmander. Not my brightest moment as a kid.

Friggin' Charmander

#15 Edited by Hunter5024 (5711 posts) -

Yellow was my first Pokemon game so stupid Pikachu. Then I went to Silver where I chose Totodile. Went back to Red and chose Bulbasaur. Then Torchic, then Turtwig, then Tepig, then Fennekin.

Classic Charmander was the coolest.

#17 Posted by GnomeonFire (752 posts) -

Sadly for all of us whose first was Yellow, we didn't get to choose :(

Charmander. He becomes a fucking dragon! Plus burning things is fun. Two things all little boys love come together.

Squirtle, erryday!

Charizard isn't a dragon.

#23 Edited by M_33 (527 posts) -

I started with two. Umbreon and Espeon from Coliseum. To this day I still have them with me through transferring. Boo-ha.

Yes he is.

Pikachu.

#26 Posted by UlquioKani (1067 posts) -

Treecko is my main man. His evolution, Sceptile, is my favourite Pokemon.

#27 Edited by TechnoSyndrome (921 posts) -

Squirtle. Come on, Blastoise is the fucking coolest final evolution.

Yes he is.

When he mega evolves he becomes a dragon, sure. Vanilla Charizard is Fire/Flying.

I got Crystal (and Mario Kart) with my GBA for Christmas 2001, started with Totodile.

I didn't say he is a dragon type I said he is a dragon. Just like Pikachu is a rat, squirtle is a turtle etc.

Oh in that case I guess so. What does Lizardon mean in english anyway? Lizard Dragon? I guess he is.

#35 Posted by Vuud (2015 posts) -

Charmander was hands down the coolest, especially because he became Charizard. And you had to beat Brock and Misty first with a fire pokemon so it was real dirty business getting those first few badges.

#36 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7617 posts) -

Squirtle, obviously.

Charmander from OG red. I didn't know jack shit about the game then, so I ended up leveling him up way past everything else because I liked him/charmeleon/charizard so much. I hit a wall eventually. I think it's probably my favorite starter with squirtle coming in at a solid second. I don't think I ever pick grass starters...

#40 Posted by SMTDante89 (2582 posts) -

First was Blue, went with Squirtle only because I knew the first gym would be weak to Water. For Y, I also chose Squirtle, I just like the Squirtle line a little more than Charmander or Bulbasaur.

#41 Edited by mikey87144 (1782 posts) -

Wow, a lot of original Pokemon players in this thread. Bulbasaur was my first.

#42 Posted by HeyGuys (461 posts) -

Bulbasaur because I was a hipster 7 year old and all my friends had Charmander or Squirtle.

#43 Posted by Spoonman671 (4648 posts) -

I rolled Squirtle the first time I played Pokemon. Turned out to be a good choice, since he's the only one that ends up WITH FUCKING CANNONS MOUNTED ON HIS BACK!

Bulbasaur.

#48 Posted by ch3burashka (5089 posts) -

I always picked Bulbasaur because he was OP for the first two leaders, giving you a little breathing room to train other Poke's, so I never developed any kind of love for Charmander. In retrospect, I guess I was kind of a pussy for taking the easy way out the 20 times I started a new save, but too late to change that now.
