I started with Squirtle.
I nicknamed mine Turtle
I like Charmander too though.

Let's see if I can remember.
Back in the day, I think I picked Squirtle. and stupidly raised it alone to level 52 before Fuschia City. I was a n00b back then if you handn't noticed.

I believe the first time I played, it was Bulbasaur, which I named Bubly because I misspelled "Bulby." Then I started over and chose Squirtle and had a terrible time getting past Misty since I didn't have a Pikachu and my friend traded me his Ivysaur to use, but it wouldn't obey me. I eventually got all 150 Pokemon though. Then I started over and tried with Charmander. Since then, I've restarted the game so many times, I've lost track.

I think the first time I used Bulbasaur, but I'm not sure, it was soooo much time ago...

I used Bulbasaur on my first two times and Squirtle on the last one.

I really liked Squirtle more, since it learns a lot of cool moves. Plus, Squirtle learns cool moves by TM's, so I didn't have to wait long to evolve it, unlike Bulbasaur, that I evolved it on level 40 something so it could learn Solar Beam quickly.

you were most certainly not the only one to get {charmander} - i got it but gave up - couldn't get past brock but i will get it on fire red as you can catch {mankey} very early on so it will help me against my problem about getting {charmander} against brock's {geodude} and {onix} .
and i'm hoping to get a {pikachu} (if i can find one) to help me with misty's {staryu} and {starmie} and then {mankey} or {diglett} will help me with lt. surges {voltorb}, {pikachu} and {raichu} (at least i think he has them - it's been donkey's years since i played on the original red virsion

Hmm, SneakySneasel, beating Brock is extremely hard when you use Charmander. But it is possible. How I do it is I mostly raise Charmander but catch a few grass Pokemon. The trick is to evolve your Charmander into Charmeleon. With Charmeleon and a few potions, Brock shouldn't be too hard at all. Most likely, Charmander won't evolve before you hit the gym. It takes a little while, but go in the grass before Pewter and fight wild Pokemon until he evolves. Trust me, it'll make it a lot easier. For backup, make sure at least 1 or 2 of those grass Pokemon is on level 8-10.

Rather than start a whole new topic in the FireRed/LeafGreen section, I decided to post this here.

I just got FireRed. I picked a {charmander} and named it Firetail.

Well, for my very first run through the game, I picked Charmander. He looked the least pathetic out of the starters in the Blue picture library. ^_^

It would be nice if there were some Grass types available, that early (that kid doesn't let you get to Mt. Moon, until you beat Brock).

I think the only wild pokes available are,

{pidgey}
{rattata}
{nidoran m}
{nidoran f}
{mankey}
{spearow}
{caterpie}/{metapod}
{weedle}/{kakuna}
{pikachu}

(I think that's all of them), I would suggest raising a Caterpie into a Butterfree though.

hmm.. I can't remember. probably {bulbasaur}, because I wasn't a big fan of squirtle and charmander back then.. if I'll play again, I'll go with squirtle. {blastoise} is just too cool..

I'll chose {charmander} in LG too, 'cause of {suicune} And actually, {charmander} is the most powerful, but the Gym leaders make it more difficult for him. :(

My team that I beat Brock with was
Level 18 Charmeleon
Level 15 Butterfree
Level 15 Beedrill
Level 15 Mankey
Level 16 Pikachu

hmm...In red, I first had Bulbasaur, then picked Squirtle. In lg, i'll pick Charmander for a few reasons, and if I get fr, I'll pick Squirt;e, since I didn't get to use the Red Squirtle much, since this weird mental kid took it off me.

I usually pick Bulbasaur though In Fire Red I chose Charmander because he learns metal claw (Anti Rock Move).

My very first was Squirtle, raised to alone to blastoise by lavender town, I remember I was out of all pp exept withdraw, I ran into that guy with a Cubone by lavender town, and he took my blastoise out and I had to start the rock tunnel all over without flash because I didn't save after I got out :lol:
