Who did you choose to be your starter Pokemon?

I own both Pokemon Black and Pokemon White, In Pokemon White I choose Tepig. I generally choose fire Pokemon in the Pokemon games because there is a big lack of other fire Pokemon to choose from. In Black I went with Snivy, but this time around I decided I should pick the one I had never played with before. Oshawott is now at level 19 and has since evolved.

I still don't really like these starters, but hey nobody can ever be a Charmander!

Oshawott, because he was my favorite in black, so why wait?

Picked Oshawott. Picked Tepig in White 1 to try something different and he is the worst Fire starter ever, stat wise.

Charmander.

#6 Edited by Superkenon (1396 posts) -

Snivy. Because Serperior.

He's so far and above better than the other two to me that I feel like I should pick him again. Maybe it'd be better to try something else though...

I am using Snivy. He is ok. I don't really like the starters that much since there are so many great pokemon besides them.

@NoobSauceG7: I don't know if its just me, but I never replace a starter Pokemon, I don't know why i don't but it just feels wrong.

Snivy's cool.

#10 Posted by AndrewB (7506 posts) -

Oshawatt, because there's a bunch of grass Pokemon and fire Pokemon I want to use. I was kinda hoping for a switchup in starters, to be honest.

Squirtle, goddamnit. 

#12 Posted by VicRattlehead (1398 posts) -

ill be taking the fire pig because its a fucking fire pig....

(i took him in white 1 and have the other 2 ready for transfer when i get the game)

#13 Posted by Bawlsz (84 posts) -

Started with Tepig, I'll get the other two starters from my brother, but I don't really like the starters, previous generations look allot better, but Samurott and Serperior look good.

#14 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1233 posts) -

@Hizang: I agree with you that it feels wrong but in Black I replaced my Emboar for a Chandelure since he seemed cool. I haven't replaced my Snivy yet though since there normally are not that many good grass pokemon.

Oshawott cause it's the cutest of the three.

Look at that big dumb face!

I disagree, Tepig is the cutest.

I will not play any pokemon game that won't let me choose from charmander, squirtle, or bulbasaur at the start.

#19 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (3052 posts) -

Tepig aka T-Pain 4 Life!

...Besides starter grass Pokemon cause Bulbasaur is one of the greatest grass types!

Snivy, because just look at him. Look at all the fucks he refuses to give.

#22 Posted by vikingdeath1 (933 posts) -

Doesn't matter, I've been breeding a full team of Max stat Bangers to be my A-team! then I trade em over to my new game in Black 2 and throw that stupid tepig in the BOX where he belongs!

Growlithe is my starter now. Since I found out the starting regional dex in this has Waaaaayyy more than just the new 150!!

#23 Posted by Iodine (543 posts) -

The amount of Genwunners on giant bomb is surprising

#24 Posted by Aaron_G (1611 posts) -

I went with Snivy this time.

#25 Posted by Robot_Sneakers (418 posts) -

I chose tepig, but since I already played White and don't love the starters, I decided to do what I never do and ditch my starter and use only pokemon I haven't used before.

#26 Posted by JackSukeru (5906 posts) -

1st gen: Bulbasaur

2nd gen: Cyndaquil

3rd gen: Torchic

4th gen: Torterra

I've basically never started with a Water Pokemon due to them being very common (and kind of boring, since Surf is so useful) but once my copy of B&W 2 arrives I intend to pick Oshawott and then probably stick with his second form.

#27 Posted by rpwll (64 posts) -

I chose Oshawatt because my friend chose Tepig and I'm an asshole.

#28 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2313 posts) -

I went with Snivy once again. Oshawott is adorable but I'm not a fan of his evolved forms. Tepig and his evolved forms are just stupid.

#29 Posted by Spoonman671 (4562 posts) -

Take one fucking guess.

Charmander.

Having forgotten about Pokemon for about a decade or so, I only recently encountered the snobby elitist notion that choosing Charmander was the only option, unless you were retarded or something. Makes me look back and question my 10-year-old self's sanity. Then I realize, no it's these internet assholes that need to get a clue. Bulbasaur FTW.

I love his final form, Tepig evolves into a beast.

Would you guys just stop thinking that the first gen was the best? I'm not even a big Pokemon fan but god were those designs lazy at times. Just look at evolutions that are just three of the same pokemon like koffing-weezing, magenemite-mageneton, dodo-dodrio, and diglilete-dugdrio. Fuckin lazy man.

You going to sit there and tell me Weezing is stupid?

Weezing is great, the design of just having three koffings is just unimaginative.

Thats all I needed!

How is a fire pig "stupid" in any way shape or form? It's a fucking fire pig! haha

#46 Posted by Grim_2_ (50 posts) -

Started with oshawott in black 1 and decided to go with Tepig this time cause he started to grow on me plus his final stage is pretty badass.

#47 Posted by Dagbiker (6939 posts) -

Yah, Tipig looks like a Zelda character I don't remember what I picked in Pokemon Black, they all kinda blur together. In fact i was pretty much predicting the play by play in this one. The only thing that surprised me so far is the not 4 house starting zone.

#48 Posted by Grim_2_ (50 posts) -

@Dagbiker: lol yeah I have a Emboar named Ganondorf in my Black 1 game he's pretty beast when used correctly.

This. Pikachu was fucking great.  But seriously... The Pig.
#50 Posted by Skorpichu (6 posts) -

I'll probably wait for Pokemon Brown so Muk can have a third evolution but, other than that always Fire type so Tepig!
