Welcome to Day 3 of the Pokémon Challenge. Today we take a look at start Pokémon
Starter Pokémon. The first friend in almost every Pokémon game, and the first important decision for many a young gamer. No matter what generation you start with, there’s a starter Pokémon somewhere. For me, it was Kanto’s Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. A choice of three – one Grass type, one Fire and one Water. Whichever I chose, my rival would choose the one that would be stronger against me in the great and vast game of Rock, Paper, Scissors that Pokémon is. And with every generation since, there has been a Grass, Fire or Water type to choose from. But which starter is my favourite?
Despite one of my favourite Pokémon being the evolved form of Charmander, my favourite starter is a different Fire type; Generation 2’s Cyndaquil. I am a fan of the Fire types, but also it looks like a hedgehog, and also also evolves into the mean looking Typhlosion via a definite teenage period of being a Quilava.
What a cutie.
Tomorrow, my favourite Eeveelution – everyone has one, and you may be surprised to hear which it is!
