For those of us who played either the original Pokemon games (Blue, Red, Yellow, or Green versions) or the remakes (Fire Red and Leaf Green), which Pokemon did you choose to take from Professor Oak??

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.)

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 :(

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.

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?
