    The title says it all.
    I like Water, because my Top 2 and 3 of my Top 5 favorite starters are water. In the games I never liked fire's low HP, and Grass always seemed bland.

    Piplup is water...

    So is oshawott, hence why RD voted for water.

    Other than Gen 1 starters (they all looked cool) and Treeko, Water is by far the best.

    Is there a thread about the stage2 of the starters?

    Creating a thread for Basic and Stage 2 starters would most likely be spam and just clutter up the forum. I'd say keep it in here if it's about type, and in the other starter thread if it's about the gen (unless Bleak or sibon decide it needs its own thread, but we're already talking about different stages).

    Anyways, Grass type is almost always the best pick even if their movesets can be a bit lacking. Torterra's the best thing (if you don't include Feraligatr), and Venusaur, and even Serperior. Meganium was disappointing and Sceptile was alright, but the other three are pretty awesome. Torterra doesn't care that it's 4x weak to Ice Beam, it still bites ghosts and Earthquakes everything that doesn't fly.

    My favorite kind of starter are turtles, followed by pigs and then monkeys, with penguins worth an honorable mention.

    I guess I favor Grass because green is my favorite color, but usually the Grass-Type Pokémon has the least appealing form... but other than Turtwig (because I am fond of turtles... especially the Teenage Mutant Ninja variety) I don't think I've ever actually chosen a Grass-Type as my initial starter. I am also not at the level where I will focus on "playability" over what I simply enjoy using.

    coolestman22 Now Has Techron

    Water - Totodile (Cool), Squirtle (Cool), Oshawott (meh imo, I don't care what RD has to say), Mudkip (u leik?), and Piplup (Alright)
    Fire - Charmander (meh), Torchic (meh), Cyndaquil (meh), Tepig (meh), Chimchar (meh)
    Grass - Treecko (Cool), Snivy (Cool), Bulbasaur (Cool), Chikorita (meh), and Turtwig (meh).

    Grass wins somehow.
