Something not to be taken seriously.

Clearly, the sooner you get Ice Beam... the better.

I agree. Squirtle was my starting pokemon is pokemon Blue. I got him to lvl 100 and transferred him to many other generation pokemon games. I always start with the water pokemon.

Same here. Mostly because I hardly ever liked any of the water pokemon available before you need Surf.

NO! CYNDAQUIL!

CYNDAQUIL OR NOTHING!

Then Charmander.

Then Totodile.

Then Chikorita.

Then Torchic.

THEN Squirtle.

After that, Treeko.

Then Piplup.

Alright I'm done, lol. *The above represents the views expressed by ABeastNamedTariq.*

yeah id say so, charizard is my favourite but he only gets water type coverage with mega charizard Y which means solar beam has no charge because of the drought ability.

But blastoise by default can learn ice beam for grass type coverage and earthquake for electric type coverage.

Squirtles evo has the best coverage out of the 3 with the other two only gaining it through mega evolutions.

why the hell use blastoise when i can use "mUdafuka killer star" ( Starmie)! Hell Stramie was one of the best pokemons in the game, much more powerfull than blastoise.

Thuderbolt /ice beam/ psychic/ surf > kill like 120 of the 150 pokemons easy!

Does this person realize that gamefreak set the starters to be your game difficulty level? And stays the same in just about every game?

Grass = Easy

Water = Medium

Fire = Hard
