I like Chimchar! Not only is it fire, but I also really like primates in real life!

No Pokemon ever can beat Squrtle.

Tirtwig, I love his final evolution.

Infernape is one of the best starter Pokémon in terms of purely statistical fighting capabilities. It's also my least favorite of the Sinnoh starters (I'm just not a huge fan of monkeys).

The Piplup line is my favorite. Even though both Torterra and Infernape can hit Empoleon for super effective damage with their STAB moves (Ground and Fighting, respectively), it's still a fantastic Pokémon that I love using.

Man, I want Sinnoh remade on the Sun/Moon engine.

The biggest flaw for Gen IV is in Diamond and Pearl, the only fire type available to catch in the wild is ponyta. That's pretty bad. If they remake Sinnoh, they need to correct this.

They corrected it in Platinum, though

This is tough because Gen IV probably has the best overall set of starters for me. I like all of them, even their final evolutions. I'm not going to go for Chimchar, because while I like it very much, it is another Fire/Fighting. I love Turtwig and how it grows a freaking tree when it evolves into Torterra, but in the end I'll go for Piplup. A bit like Snivy/Serperior, it goes from cute to regal and looks awesome throughout.

Turtwig is my favorite starter from any gen thus far -- I love Torterra's design, I love how bulky it is, and I love my stab Earthquake and Wood Hammer. >: D

That 4x ice weakness, however. <_<;
