Reader Discussion: Which Starter Pokémon Is The Best Starter Pokémon?


Including today’s revealed introductory Pokémon for the upcoming Sun & Moon, there are now 22 different starters among 27 different Pokémon games. Which one is the best?


To help you decide – and you can only pick one – here’s the full list:


Red/Green/Blue/FireRed/LeafGreen – Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle


Yellow – Pikachu


Gold/Silver/Crystal/HeartGold/SoulSilver – Chikorita, Cyndaquil, or Totodile


Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire – Treecko, Torchic, or Mudkip


Diamond/Pearl/Platinum – Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup


Black/White/Black 2/White 2 – Snivy, Tepig, or Oshawott


X/Y – Chespin, Fennekin, or Froakie


Sun/Moon – Rowlet, Litten, or Popplio



There are a lot to choose from, many with overlapping abilities, but they’re all very distinct. It’s easy to go with one of the original, or Pikachu, since they’ve been around the longest, but don’t discount the newcomers! Let us know in the comments below who is the best.


Remember that time we ranked all 151 of the original Pokémon from dumbest to coolest?
