Pokemon Blue + Squirtle FTW!!!!

I remember using Gameshark and making the starter Pokemon Mew. That was epic. =P

Squirtle, I choose you! :)

The first time, I picked Squirtle.  On my second play-through, I chose Charmander.  Third time?  I was playing Pokemon Yellow, so it was Pikachu.

I hated how you couldn't evolve Pikachu. Why the hell did they HAVE to keep true to the TV show? So dumb...

Bulbasaur, duh!

I hated having Pikachu forced on you like that. Hated that stupid rat following me everywhere.

I remember never being able to choose, and whenever I chose one of them, a couple of hours later I would restart because I would have changed my mind. I think my longest playthrough was done with Squirtle, because I remember having a Blastoise. Ah the memories...

I also remember helping a buddy of mine out when he first started playing Pokemon.  I had two cartridges at the time, my sister's Blue cartridge and my Red cartridge.  My sister had yet to play it at the time, so I used Blue and got Bulbasaur at the start, then played until I could trade, then I traded with my friend for a Weedle or something easily caught.  He had all 3 right of the bat.  XD

Charmander is teh Best

#20 Posted by TheGTAvaccine (2916 posts) -

Charmander. They all looked like piles of poo in retrospect. :P

#21 Posted by lilarchie232 (746 posts) -

I always liked Squirtle. =P

#22 Posted by lord_canti (1661 posts) -

i chose charmander but i want to play it again with squertal lol

#23 Posted by HitNRun (341 posts) -

I was a Charmander man myself. My friends and I played the game at release, before the cartoon came out, so I don't feel too dirty admitting it.

A good choice in retrospect. The first two bosses are near-impossible with Charmander, but after you manage to get past them, you run roughshod through the rest of game.

Plus I mean, come on. You can either get a flower-lizard, a super-soaker turtle, or a giant fire-breathing dragon as your end-form.

Squirtle, water pokemons are always the best.

#25 Posted by Demyx (3240 posts) -

When I played Ruby, I picked the fire one, the grass one was harder at the beginning.

Bulbasaur because when he evolved, I eventually got him to level 126 and I owned like most people I played multiplayer with lol.

#27 Posted by Ossi (1279 posts) -

Charmander

#32 Edited by HoldSteady828 (172 posts) -

I am ashamed that I am writing the words, "Charmander is the Pokemon that I'd pick of the three." Furthermore, I guzzle shame buckets that I write this on the internet. That said:

Charmander is the Pokemon that I'd pick of the three.

CHARMANDER!!!!

Charmander is a sexy beast

#36 Posted by jakob187 (22362 posts) -

Squirtle because he's a mad pimp.

He really isn't.  His additional Poke-type (Charizard adds Flying to Fire) increases the number of weaknesses he has--and he isn't all that powerful to begin with.  I think he's just popular because he's a damned dragon.

Blastoise is definitely the best, statistically, of the three final evolutions.  Therefore, Squirtle for the win.

Fuck evolutions.  Squirtle is the pimp.  All that upgrade shit means nothing to me.  I just think Squirtle is the cutest little shit in the world.  I want him as my pet!

#40 Posted by shadows_kill (3093 posts) -

This. Charmander was a pimp's Pokemon.
