Top 10 Starter Pokemon

#6 - Treecko

Up next is Treecko, the first Pokemon of the third generation. Treecko is the second highest ranked Grass-Type Pokemon on this list (so you know which one is still to come), and this is probably the best spot for it. I wish I could rank it higher, but I really don't think anyone ranked higher deserves to lose their spot to do so. So Treecko, you stuck here. Not too bad for this cool guy.

Treecko, on popularity alone, has always been highly sought after. It was the only Hoenn Starter Pokemon Ash Ketchum somehow obtained, which was a new thing for the Anime Series (Ash had obtained all previous six Starter Pokemon - Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile). It also was given that cool guy attitude and look, which made it even more popular. It's design was key, being better looking than Mudkip and just a good looking as Torchic.

Treecko was an okay choice, when it comes to traveling through the Hoenn Region. It had a favorable match up with about half of the Gym Leaders and Elite Four in Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, and even Pokemon OmegaRuby and Alpha Sapphire. That's not too bad, but it didn't compare to Mudkip. However, that type of stuff doesn't really matter with experienced Pokemon Gamers.

As for Treecko's final evolution and its place in competitive play... It's okay. It doesn't compare with Blaziken, since it's one of the best sweepers around; it really is about even with Swampert.

But that's not all!!! We can't forget about it's Mega Evolution. Mega Sceptile is a really good Pokemon, being the only Grass-Dragon Type in all of Pokemon. Mega Sceptile made Pokemon Gamers think twice when choosing their Starter in the newer remakes, since it has such an awesome design and typing. Pretty cool, if you ask me. Which is what Treecko has been: Cool.
