For me, my first starter was Piplup. My very first Pokemon game was Platinum, and I couldn't resist the allure of having a penguin fight on my behalf.

For me, it was Charmander! I remember training it up all the way to level 16 in the first patch of grass outside of Pallet Town ^^

Mine was squirtle, but I had no idea what I was doing and restarted the game. Second time around I got a charmander and still have it to this day

I am pretty sure my first Pokemon game I played was Ruby! My first starter was Treecko and I will always have a soft spot for it

I first played Pokemon Blue around Christmas of '98. I had seen the anime first, specifically the collection of episodes where Ash gets each of the starters, and liked Squirtle the best among them, so that is who I picked.

Totodile in Heartgold version. Choosing between the three was really difficult, but I ended up with the adorable little croc! Since I didn't know what team building was, I solo'd through the game until I got stuck at Silver's fight in Goldenrod City. I never actually beat a game with a Totodile until a did a complete playthrough recently.

Mine was Cyndaquill. My older brother got Crystal, and so let me mess about on his copy of Silver for a bit. (No, I didn't delete his save, he'd done that already before he let me use it) Mainly because at the time I thought Chicorita was ugly, (an opinion that I no longer hold,) and my brother had picked Totodile, so I wanted something different. It's still one of my favourite starter pokemon.

Mudkip. Because my first game was in Gen 3 and the water type seemed most appealing to me. The water type still holds a place close to my heart, and of them Mudkip will always be one of my favorites.

My first starter was Piplup!! I was just borrowing a copy of my cousin's Pearl but I loved water types heh. When I got White as my first actual game I chose Oshawott.

Oh how much I'd always be Chimchar I played with the game through first, but, I started with Turtwig, only soft resetting soon afterwards as I wanted the monkey as my buddy.
