From Legend of Thunder to most fan art and animations (like Golder) Gold just gets depicted with Typhlosion too much for me too not think of it as his main partner.

It depends on what personality you want to insert on him. If you see it as the typical hot-blooded shonen protagonist, Typhlosion fits him like a glove. But if you imagine it with a more calm and passive acctitude I think he has good chemistry with Meganium.

I'm going with Cyndaquill, mostly because Silver feels like a Totodile kind of guy to me and I don't like Chikorita,

Yeah, he is depicted with Cyndaquil so much in all medias, it feels weird not to go there.

Besides, I can only see Silver with Totodile, so it would make no sense if I picked Chikorita for him.

Which therefor leaves Kris and/or Lyra (whoever you prefer) with Chikorita.

Most forms of media gives him Cyndaquil, and I can only see Silver as a Totodile guy, so my vote goes to Cyndaquil.

I think of Ethan as being serious when he needs to be, but more relaxed and willing to enjoy himself than Red, and very physically active. Totodile feels like a good fit to me, and I like imagining it playing with Lyra's Marill.

He's predominately shown with Cyndaquil so I can't imagine him having anything else, honestly.
