If you want an easy game people say to use mudkip if you want a normal game use treeko and if you want a hard game use torchic

There really isn't. It really depends on what moves you give your Pokemon and how you train them. But I have both versions. So if I start a new game I decide what Pokemon I want before I start it and breed that Pokemon then trade it to the new game. So I can start the game with good pokemon. Like a Bagon, Milotic, or a Beldum.

If you mean starter, my personal favourite is Torchic, although they are fairly equal.

Hi
I think that the best starter Pokemon to get is Torchic and here are a few reasons why:
- most of the Pokemon in the first half of the game are grass and bug, so are weak against fire
-there arn't many good fire Pokemon avalible in the game and Blaziken is probably the best, and is also a convenient Fire/ Fighting duel type
- In the second half of the game you can use Blaziken's strong fighting and fire moves to easily destroy the fist of the elite 4, not to mention the ice trainer's 2 Glalies

Torchic rules ; )

There is no best starter pokemon. They are all equal. None of them gets you an easy way or a hard way through. So whatever people like the best( wich is probally torchic psh.), just pick it.

P.S. Torchic sucks.

My opinion would to not choose mudkip because it becomes a water/ground type and your rival will have Treeko who is a grass type and will be double super effective.
That's just what I think, he can be a good starter sometimes.

My opinion is torchic because as they level up they get super strong (mine evolved twice and is level 57). He has double kick and can defeat trainers Pokemon untouched. But, if you have a link cable and a friend with a GBA, you can get all three. You transfer them to your freinds and start 3 games. This is what you should do: first game) get 1 Pokemon, sent to friends GBA, starrt a new game second game) do the same with a different Pokemon third game) get the last Pokemon and continue on. Then get the Pokemon back from your friend.

I would say mudkip, because my brother has this game and he passed it without any problem, and he beat the elite 4 and the champion, without having a fainted Pokemon(He was awsome until, he stopped playing). While he played Pokemon emerald he finished the games at least 30 times.

-MUDKIP ROCKZ

You should get mudkip, because it can kill the gyms easy

Bro's mudkip is the best he only has 1 weakness because the ground counters the water. Only ground hurts and it's preety easy to see agrass type coming. Also if you use mudkip there aren't many really easy gyms only 2 at the beggining. Aso the hardest gym is water so you can't really use him. Plus he is a great allround Pokemon so you can't really go wrong with the mudkipz.

In sapphire I would say Treeko because there arnt many good grass Pokemon. Also he is good at weakening Kyoger so you can save you masterball for raquaza/Latios

Get a Bagon ASAP. They are in meteor falls. Salamanca is the most OP Pokemon in the game besides legendaries.

I say you should choose what you want because the starters are like Rock Paper Scissors water beats fire forebears grass and grass beats water so do what you want or try all three and see wich you like best
