I chose Squirtle in my first Pokemon Blue playthrough. That's because I thought it was the most dominant choice, as I used to think that Water also beats Grass. That's silly, I know, and in some ways true (most Water-types could learn Ice Beam, after all). It never disappointed me, even though I never caught other Pokemon (I didn't know I could do that).

Thanks for reading.

Ah, I remember getting Crystal for the very first time, at about 5 or something. I was so excited every time I KO'd a Pokemon, thinking I'd caught it :')

I think I chose Totodile - I specifically remember thinking "Is Croconaw wearing a cave man fur-thing?". Now I think it's a leotard :L

Awr, I miss those days :3

When the red/blue came out I was in highschool. I remember thinking it was kind of goofy to play with little monsters, but my friends wouldn't shut up about it. I ended up liking it a lot, I picked Charmander for my first choice and I would do it again.

The first game I ever owned was Gold, and consequently I picked Totodile, mainly because my friend picked Cyndaquil, and we didn't want to pick the same one. After that I have restarted gold twice, picking Cyndaquil then Chikorita on my final, current and complete playthrough.

I'm too afraid to start my Gold after all these years though, since if the internal battery is dead, I will have to watch my completed pokedex go down the drain never to return...I still think Gen2 was the best that was ever made...Good times...

I picked Charmander, but my first pokemon was actually Pickachu in the Yellow version.

Yellow was my first game, but since Pikachu isn't up there, I think I started with Chikorita when I first got Gold.

I started way late--chose a Squirtle in FireRed. I still have her as a Blastoise on either Black or SoulSilver. Her name is Katara. XD Proof of how TV affects me--we were watching Avatar the Last Airbender at the time.

Region - First Pokemon (Others choses)


Kanto - Charmander
Johto - Chikorita (Totodile)
Hoenn - Torchic (Treecko, Mudkip)
Sinnoh - Chimchar (Piplup)
Black/White (I can't recall the area. It's just that boring! XD) - Snivy

I like Fire and Grass. I hate Tepig and Turtwig, though.

Ah... memories... The first time I ever played Pokemon was on a (possibly hacked?) copy of Silver my older brother downloaded onto his computer. I remember always sneaking into his room while he wasn't around to play :3 I remember choosing Chikorita as my starter. (though my brother was a cheater and also had a hacked Mewtwo that was technically my first coughcough)

In a copy that I later bought LEGITIMATELY, I think I chose Totodile. But, if I had my druthers, I think we all know what starter I would choose if I first played Pokemon Red ;)

@Winter: Katara? Automatic win right there :3

I didn't put Pikachu there on purpose, since you actually never chose it, per say. It's just given to you with no other options available.
