Squirtle was my first all the way back in Blue.

I think Squirtle in the first games wayyyyyyyyy back in 1998. I don't even remember if I evolved it to its final stage or not xD

So if that doesn't count, maybe Bulbasaur. Or Pikachu in Yellow.

My first game was the original Blue, and my first starter was Charmander. I'm old, I know.

My first starter was Charmander. I got myself FireRed version and couldn't decide on Squirtle or Charmander. I knew enough about the game to know that your rival picked the one strongest against yours because my brother had LeafGreen and got all the way to the Elite Four. So, since I liked both, I chose Charmander because I knew I would still see Squirtle.

... I'd love to say Bulbasaur, but my first actual game was Ruby, and I think I picked Torchic then?

Technically, it was actually Minun! My first Pokémon game was the original Pokémon Ranger. Shortly after I bought that, though, I got a copy of FireRed at a garage sale and picked Charmander. :D

If it counts, Eevee from XD. I remember purchasing a GameCube bundle with XD after getting back into Pokémon and evolving my starter into Umbreon. Good times.

For cartidge games, I think Treecko from Emerald? I honestly don't remember who I chose, lol.

Pikachu, my first game was Yellow.
My best friend kept telling me about her's (i.e "I caught a zubat") and when she finally actually showed me, that was it. When my mom picked me up from her place I asked to get it and she agreed.

My first personal game was Platinum and I chose Piplup. I had played Sapphire before though but I didn't choose the starter I just took over my brothers save file which was abandoned at Lilycove and he had Blaziken and helped me get to Kyogre which I caught with my master ball and used strictly him the remainder of the game. Used only kyogre. Got him to lv 100. That was my first.

Same as you! I picked Bulbasaur on Pokémon Blue :) And it has become one of my favourite starters (I could say it’s my fav starter actually)

I only got into Pokemon when Gen 4 was just coming out, so my starter was Turtwig. I still have my first Turtwig as well. Well, Torterra now but you get me.

Mine was Bulbasaur, which I lovingly named BULBY, on Pokémon Blue Version. :)
