Pick Oshawott because it's a water type, even though I wanted a fire type, tepig looked too lame. (Black)

Exceptions made at your discretion, lol.

I chose Oshawott because I haven't used a water type in a while, and for the first time ever, I was repulsed by the later evolutions of the fire type. I'll take Snivy when I get White.

I have Black. I chose Snivy...Mainly because my sister got Oshawott in her Black game.

If I get White, then I'll pick Tepig. Tepig and it's evo's are beast.

No. For a while now, I planned to get Oshawott because of its Water type and nice Attack and Special Attack stats, its good HP, and just hwo well its stats balance out in general (erm, Samurott, I mean.)
Also that I've always preferred water type because they only have two weaknesses, but eh.

Anyways, I usually pick out the Pokemon based on its type, what its type will be when it evolves fully, and/or its stats at its final evolution. And their movepool diversity and power and whatnot. I feel like I'm on of the only ones here that does that that's posted here. xD;

I decided to choose Snivy because 1- It looks the coolest, imo B) 2- It's FAST and I almost always choose the fastest starter (makes that very first battle against your rival when both your Mons are Lv. 5 MUCH easier) and 3- IT'S A GRASS TYPE WHICH I LOVE.

In my Black game, I chose the coolest one, Oshawott. I tend to pick the fire starters, since they are usually cuter (I love the cute <3) Orignally, I was going to chose Tepig... but that was before I saw its evolutions and their typings.... I already have a kick-butt Fire/Fighting mon, thank you very much.
Plus, Dewott is my favorite Gen V starter evo. And one of my favorite Gen V Pokemon in general.

EDIT: Oh, I chose Snivy in White, since its name reminded me of Severus Snape from the Harry Potter (Snivy -> Snivellus -> Severus). So I choose him <3

I picked Oshawott. Why? Because I don't do so well with any other type. This has been true for 3 generations now: I, IV, and V. II was Cyndaquil cuz I can't stand Toto or Chika, and III I was great at raising all 3, plust they looked really cool in their final forms (Except Sceptile. I can't stand Sceptile. Grovyle FTW!) But yeah, i pick by type first and foremost.

At first I will only choose the Grass-starter no matter what. After that, when the starters were announced, I decided to go for Oshawott because he's the most hated. When the time comes for its release, I chose Snivy because he has good Defences and great Speed, which is a combination I like.

Thanks for reading.

I always pick the Water starters so that is how I chose. I must say I was really disappointed with it in this game though :/.

I picked Oshawott cause I am fond of otters IRL. Very cute and awesome. Plus, I have no clue why Oshawott was so hated, it looked adorable to me. I didn't even care about stats (training makes up for that ftw).

I will say I am very happy with my choice, though I will admit it was hard to choose between Snivy and Oshawott at first. Ah well ^^

I'm surprised I didn't reply to this thread yet, I chose my starter merely based off the fact that I pick all if my starters to be the fire type, I also was a fan of tepigs evolutions :) so it worked itself out pretty well.

I always choose grass, due to it being the greatest challenge. Also, the water thing looks like a bow-tie, and the other one isn't actually a pig when it evolves.
