For this article I will be comparing your choices for these three starter Pokemon. Even in other games you have to make this choice. You have to decide on this major decision in the first games straight away and always stumps you unless you have one in mind already..
One of the biggest questions in the Pokemon series. What Pokemon starter should I choose? You choice could be determined by many reasons. Each starting Pokemon has its own advantages an disadvantages. The following is information to better understand the choices you can make.
Charmander is a favourite for most people. The end of a Charmander’s tail is alight with a flame, and the flame’s size reflects both the physical health and the emotions of the individual. The fire type Pokemon evolves into one of the well most known Pokemon called Charizard. This dragon looking Fire/flying type has good stats in attack, special attack and speed. It can use moves such as Inferno, Flamethrower, Slash and more.
Bulbasaur is most likely your least choice. On its back is a green plant bulb, which is grown from a seed planted there at birth. The bulb provides it with energy through photosynthesis as well as from the nutrient-rich seeds contained within. The grass/poison type Pokemon can learn moves such as Leech seed, Double-edge, Synthesis, Seed bomb and more.
Squirtle is your water Pokemon choice. Squirtle is a small Pokémon that resembles a light blue turtle. Each of its hands and feet have three-pointed digits. The end of its long tail curls inward. Its body is encased by a tough shell that forms and hardens after birth. If is good defensive stats and learns strong moves. With water moves you will have attacks super effective against Fire, rock and ground. Moves it can learn are Hydro pump, Aqua tail, Rain dance and more.
All three starter Pokemon evolve into more powerful forms. These new forms also have the ability to Mega-evolve. You need to obtain their Mega stones to Mega evolve them in battle. Charizard has two different forms depending what stone you make it hold. The X stone changes its colour to black and its flame goes blue. While the Y stone changes it only a little bit in its appearance.
Holding items to use with your one of the three starting Pokemon:
- Blastoisite (Mega stone)
- Venusaurite (Mega stone)
- Charizardite X (Mega stone)
- Charizardite Y (Mega stone)
- Berries (Recovering, defensive and offensive effects)
- Z crystals (One use power move)

In conclusion, all three are good no what you choice with five other Pokemon on your team. What you need to do to decide is purely by preference. If you know the games, you would choice one to get through the early stuff easier. Or maybe you wanna try something new. In the end it really does not matter because your team of six Pokemon is all that really matters. Even more if you’re doing a Nuzlocke challenge in the game.
