Hello! I made up a starter Pokemon tier list and I'd like to see yours!
123362

As you can see, there are seven tiers. Ranking is based on personal preference.
Make your own tier list at tiermaker.com!
What do you think?

I can't sign up with Tiermaker because I don't have a Twitter account so I'm going to make a tier on here. It's based on personal preference which in my case is all about design and not stats.

SS - Sceptile, Delphox, Greninja
S - Meganium, Blaziken, Serperior, Decidueye
A - none
B- Venusaur, Charizard, Feraligatr, Torterra, Infernape, Empoleon, Emboar
C - none
D - Blastoise, Typhlosion, Swampert
E - none
F- Samurott, Chesnaught, Incineror, Primarina

Explanation:
SS - Exactly my type of design and one of my top 20 favourite Pokemon (and in the case of Delphox top 5)
S - Like them a lot but not as much as SS and are not among my top 20 favorite Pokemon
B - Like them but not super excited about them.
D - There are things that I like and dislike about them and in the case of Blastoise I simple don't care for it.
F - Chesnaught is extremely boring looking and the rest I dislike.

Trends I notice:
  • The SS tier has one of each type.
  • Grass starters, which are my favourite type of the three, are mostly concentrated in the top tiers.

Anyone else want to add explanations to their tier?

S: Swampert, Samurott, Torterra (all three have cool yet not over-the-top designs)
A: Serperior (has a poor movepool), Primarina (a bit overdesigned), Typhlosion (its special movepool is sadly shallow), Greninja (a bit overexposed)
B: Empoleon (wish it had a better special movepool), Decidueye (it looks rather ragged), Feraligatr, Sceptile (again, its special movepool isn't good)
C: Charizard (I like its Megas much better), Venusaur (has a poor attacking movepool), Blastoise (can't hit hard in its base form), Chesnaught
D: Meganium (boring), Infernape, Emboar (both look overdesigned)
F: Delphox, Blaziken. Incineroar (they just look ugly)

S: Sceptile, Samurott, Empoleon, Torterra, Serperior, Decideye, Greninja

A: Meganium, Typlosion, Feraligatr, Swampert, Chesnaught, Charizard, Blastoise

B: Primarina, Blazekin, Infernape, Emboar

C: Venusaur, Delphox

D: Incineroar

S - I think all of these Pokémon have fantastic designs. They’re just so cool looking. One of them, Sceptile, is in my top ten favorite Pokémon. This tier has no Fire types, which is unsurprising since I rank the Fire type as the worst member of the trio except for gens 1, 2, and (currently) 8.

A - These Pokémon have great designs but they aren’t as good as the ones above.

B - These Pokémon have good designs, but they aren’t stellar.

C - These Pokémon I’m neutral on. They’re not terrible, but they’re not good either design wise.

D - I just don’t like Incineroar... its proportions are off and it just has an ugly design overall in my opinion.

Edit: Bumped Greninja up a tier

I love listing things by preference! (Counting Eevee and Pikachu because, technically, they're starters too) Though the list is usually subject to change. I could end up liking a starter more after using one in a Nuzlocke or something.

S- Delphox, Incineroar
A- Eevee, Sceptile, Infernape, Chesnaught
B- Venusaur, Meganium, Typhlosion, Decidueye, Primarina
C- Charizard, Feraligatr, Blaziken, Emboar
D- Torterra
E- Blastoise, Swampert, Serperior
F- Pikachu, Empoleon, Samurott, Greninja
Limbo: The Galar Starters. Until I know their full lines, I can't comment on them properly.

Feel free to ask why someone's somewhere. I like explaining myself. :p Even if the reason is simple and or dumb.

My Tier list (i'm too much of a skrub to get a tier list making account thing)

Perfection- Swampert
Literally Everything Else
Spawn of the Dome, DO NOT TRUST-
Eevee
UhHhHhH- Galar Starters
Bad- The Favorite Starter of everyone who doubted Swampert goes here.

I might make a more elaborate tier list but I'm writing this on my Phone.
