I chose Bulbasaur, cuz if you think about it the Bulbasaur family is one of the most challenging group of Pokemon you can ever face, I found that even though it has the most Gym advantages its still pretty challenging to train, and it does destroy the E4, and its just plain great, but as for the Charmander Family.... I despise them, well I despise Fire types really, I'm more of a Water trainer, but I do like a few Grass pokemon.

I like squirtle the best because it's good to start with and you get Raikou.

Have I posted here before? Never mind, I just thought of something so I'll post (again?)

If you want to try that strategy which states:

"Catch no wild pokes at all during your journey and pwn everyone's @$$e$ with just your starter"

...Then I would reccomend Bulbasaur as it would be OK against the first few gyms. I tried it out with Squirtle and I'm quite OK, but I haven't got round to beating Misty yet.

Then again, all of them might work well, because if your going to have a poke like that then it doesn't really matter what type it is because IT CAN PWN EVERYONE WITH ITS LITTLE FINGER.

...And my favourite part about this strategy is that you can get exempted from Double Battles for the rest of the game. I tried walking under the noses of several pairs of twins and they all refused to fight even when I talked to them.

Squirtle is the best! He has a good movepool and when he evolves into Blastoise, he looks really cool(*ahem* My Blastoise is Lv.100, for your information). Yes, Squirtle is the best :roll:

Of course, I will have to stick with one of my first favorite pokemon ever, {charizard} , but right now {blastoise} would have to be the best starter (well, final evolution of it)! It has super defense and good attacks. Water Pokemon are also my homies! Go Water Pokemon!! 8)

{bulbasaur} is only usefull at the first few gym leaders. I chose {squirtle} because he rocks and you get Raikou , (my fav out of the dogs). Later on though my brother trded me a {charizard} which was pretty strong.

Go {squirtle} !

Charmander, because Charizard has good stats, has dual-types, and is a dragon!

Fire type don't have much advantage in the old RBY version, however, in the advanced version, a new Steel type is introduced, which makes Fire-type the most advantageous among the 3 starters type.

In FrLg, charmander will hv a hard time in fighting Brock and Misty. However when i restart my FrLg or RBY, i will always catch a Pikachu in the Viridian forest, to take care of Misty. thus the only problem is Brock. I rembered that I beat brock when at Lv. 15 charmander in RBY, and i dun think there's much difference in FrLg, so i think it is not reli too difficult to beat using charmander. After these 2 gyms, it's the reign of Charmeleon and Charizard! Becoz it can learn some useful moves like Earthquake.

In the old RBY, fire is slightly worse than water, however in the advancd version, fire is as advantageous as water type (reasons are above). However, there are only very few good fire Pokemon (excluding legendaries or RSE, such as Moltres, Blaziken). i can only think of a good fire pokemon in FrLg, Arcanine, which is not available in Fr. On the contratry, there are numerous good water pokemon in FrLg (not even to mention RSE), such as Gyarados, Lapras, Tentacruel. Therefore, i suggest choosing charmander, and then catching a good water Pokemon i mentioned above.

Finally grass type just simply sucks, use electric to deal wif water type.

Well, Philip, Charmander learns Metal Claw at lv. 13, which is a Steel-type move, which is super-effective against Rock-types. That's how I defeated Brock.

Charmander for the Metal Claw thing that a lot of people have said already ^_^

I also picked the Char in my old Red version, then went a little Pokedex happy and caught every single Pokemon I saw for the first time...so I had a whole team vs Brock's two. lol, my Pidgey won against Brock's Onix...

{charmander} rules! He's fast and can learn Dragon Claw and cover his weakness with Metal Claw or Steel Wing, so I'd say that he's the best starter. Besides, on Emerald my {charizard} crushes most Pokemon!

And then follow by Venusaur .

I find Blastoise rather boring to use .

Charmander rocks . i beat brock with metal claw. i got a pidgey and trained it until it learned sand attack.against brock's onix pidgey used sand attack and reduced its accuracy. it most prolly used rock tomb which had less accuracy and it missed a lot. with charmander's metal claw i pwned brock. but anyways my rival's blastoise owns charizard.[/img]

All of them are good. But I always pick the water type for each pokemon game I played. It just serves me real well. Still my favorite starters are the fire. OH YEAH!

I never really liked {bulbasaur} except in yellow since you get em all. I can never win the first rival battle with him. I don't know why. Also, I like {squirtle} because he: a) Evolves into {blastoise}. b) Is effective enough for me. c) I LOVE WATER POKEMON! But I just restarted my FR and picked {squirtle}.

He's slow, but he gets the job done. I like how his Sp stats and regular stats are almost the same. The only thing he's lacking is speed :cry: which really sucks.

The best starter is Bulbasaur. It is a neutral Pokemon in the game. It is easy and hard at different points. i know it is the best because i got to the pokemon E4 and beat them with vensaur @ level 68 and my time was less then 14 hours. I didn't use any cheats or anything i just kept training, and it will also grow in Victory Road
