Cyndaquil because I'm a sucker for Johto

(considering HG was my first legit Pokémon game as opposed to a rom on a flash card when I just wasn't interested in the series yet)

Lately I have been back and forth. I love Oshawott and Cyndaquil, but Oshawott being a samurai fits the era so much better.

Although I like all three, I'll go with Oshawott, as it has the best movepool of the three, and Water is my favourite type.

I've used Oshawott and Cyndaquil in other playthroughs more times than I've used Rowlet, so I'm kind of thinking the chunky owl-loaf is going to be my partner for this game. But I love all three starters and could see myself doing multiple plays with each one. I think they made a really good choice with that trio!

I have always picked the Water starter and I couldn't be happier to pick Oshawott, since Samurott is my favorite Water Pokemon starter.

I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to use the same pokémon twice in a play through and since I’ve used all three starters for LA, I have no idea what I’m going to do…

I’ve thought about just leaving it behind in the PC (or equivalent) and catching a different mon to be my starter lol But I’m warming up to the idea of using Cyndaquil since it’s one of my top starters and I haven’t used the little guy since soulsilver.

While writing this I actually decided I might choose a starter to keep in its first/middle stage to differentiate it from other play throughs. We’ll see :)

I can't not choose Cyndaquil I love that lil fire baby. We shall run through the fields and hopefully not accidentally start any wildfires.

[disclaimer: if possible there will likely be AT LEAST one wildfire]
