For the beginning pokemon, each one is great. All they take is some training. I prefer cyndaquil (fire type) because it makes things simple in the sprout tower along with some of the jym leaders. Just pick the one that you like the most.

It's either Cyndaquil (fire) or Totodile (water) not Chicorita (grass). Cyndaquil is good because it will help with the 2nd, 6th, and 7th badges. It's weak against the 3rd badge because of Miltanks Roll-Out attack and also against the 5th badge because of Poliwrath and also the 8th badge of Kingdra. Totodile is good because he's strong against the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th badges due to his bite and rage attacks. He's weak against 8th badge because of the Dragons thunder moves. He's also weak against the 6th badge because of the thunder attacks as well. Chicorita is weak because of the 1st badge (flying moves). Chciorita is basically neutral when it comes to strong/weak starters. I'd go with Totodile becuase he is good with 6 out of the 8 badges and he's cool. But go with Cyndaquil if you want fire.

The easiest way to get through the game would be fire but if you want a more challenging game pick grass. Inbetween is water!!

You should really choose your favorite one. But if you want my advice choose a fire or grass because they're rarer than water. But you should choose fire because it's really strong.

None of them are better everyone says that the Grass one is weak that maybe so for the start of the game for my first game i ever played I choose that one and after the 2nd gym if its over level 25 and you keep on training it its unbeatable I know so Because I've done the game with each pokemon and they maybe strong for the 1st part of the game but not for all of it and now I am doing the game with all 3 of them.

All these other submitter are such lyers. the best one to get definetely is chickoreta.

The reason is right after you get on the path right past new bark town there is a gatehouse.

Above that in the grass is geodude and jigglypuff. their attacks suck and chikoreta has a type advantage on both of them, especially after you get it to lvl 8 he's so easy to train and beat falkner.

He's so easy to train.

For all the other submitters you need to stop talking if you don't know what you're talking about...

Fire, all the way. Cyndaquil is the best choice of the three.

You can choose as what you really like, but as my advice, I will choose the cyndaquil(fire) because it was really strong. Even fight with it weakness, it will able to learn other TM (tunder punch - don't ask my why, I also wonder how come it can learn that skill, earthquake)to solve the weakness problem.

Hope my advice can help.
