There is NO best starter.
Like I said in the title there is NO best starter. The reason for this? Because the three starters are like rock, paper, scissors here’s why: Treeko beats Mudkip, Mupkip beets Torchic, and Torchic beats Treeko.
Each starter has there "Good Point" in the game. Here is why: Treeko, good for beginning, Mudkip, good for the middle of the game, and Torchic, good for the elite four.
So see? That’s why no starter is better than the other ones.
It is up to you who you chose don't listen to idiots that say "Choose Torchic he’s the BEST" Them people are Morons because they don't know the value of a starter pokémon.
I personally pick Mudkip but it's up to you who you pick.
