A Rookidee named Pecky that carried me until the 5th gym. I really regret trading it away now.

I started with Emerald. So either Poochyena, Zigzagging or Wurmple. And the lucky winner was... Zigzagoon! I used it as an HM Slave. Back then I didn't use a team and did the "Only train your Starter" technique.
