Most of the starters have good skill sets, and decent stats.  However, I never end up keeping them for long.  I think it goes back to Pikachu (when he was a starter) however.  He was just so cute that he stayed part of the team for a long time.  After, people just kept getting attached to their starter pokemon.

I love my Water starters!

If I don't pick a Water starter, I start Grass.
If I'm playing in Kanto, I MIGHT pick Charmander...and while in Johto Cyndaquil is pretty cool too...but I don't fancy those Fire/Fighting ones that popped up in later gens, although they give Fire a little more viability.

I loathe Fire types. Those and Rock types. -_-
I like Ground types though.

Types I like:

Water
Ice
Grass
Ground
Psychic
Houndoom (wait, Houndoom isn't a type? Drat! )
Skarmory (umm...)

Water also happens to be one of the most viable mono and dual strategies in the current metagame, although it goes without saying that a good team should have a balance. Trying to run Fire as a mono/dual strategy is a terrible idea though. Being weak to Water and Ground is... :S

Sadly, for water types the starters seem to be a little bit above some of them.  I really don't like many of the water types.  Suicine (spelling?) is my favorite water type.

Yeah, Suicune is awesome. Unfortunately, if you do tournaments, Suicune is an Uber and thus banned.

Believe it or not, the reason most people dabble in Water is Quagsire...

Water/Ground with (IIRC) slightly lower stats than Swampert...wth is going on?

Well Quagsire has Water Absorb.
Swampert has that lame ability that pumps up Water moves when he/she is near death.

One of the cookie cutter builds I noticed a while ago for 4th Gen is:

Skarmory
Gengar
Quagsire
Metagross
<variable>
<variable>

If your build doesn't have those four I mentioned, congratulations, you're not a cookie.

Skarmory is a Physical Tank.
Metagross Sweeps.
Gengar I'm not too sure about...I assume Special Sweeper.
Quagsire, well I already mentioned why he's special.

Okay, why would you choose treeko in Ruby?

He only owns the first 20lvls then he is uselss for the rest of the game...

And fire fighting rocks! Blaziken will kick *** from start to endgame!

and swampart is all around awesome

But early games, yeeah okay they were more balanced..

Second vote for Blaziken! Had so much fun with him in Emerald. I usually end up taking the Fire starter for some reason.

Yet you took the adorable penguin this time...muahaha!

Water types are just too awesome not to pick.

@emilsn: I've NEVER picked Treecko, I always pick Mudkip.

It is indeed because they are both bird-like creatures, and therefore automatically made of awesome and win. In theory, at least. That theory worked out for Blaziken; Empoleon not so much, as I said.

Empoleon has an atrocious skill set.

Your best bet is to breed him to get some half-decent egg moves, but out of the three, he has the worst skill set. At least he isn't Grass/Ground. Not too thrilled with that typing.
Give me a Sandslash anyday. ^^

Yeah, double weakness to Ice = pain.

I should probably try salvaging him with TMs, but somehow that's gotten to the bottom of my list of priorities.

If you're ever bored, breed. The starter you get can't get any egg moves (I wonder why ) and so is a waste of TM's.

I would...but well you know what happened to my copy of Pearl.

One of these days I'll buy Platinum.

I suppose I should. Been working on my 'dex lately, and working on my Poffin-making speed.

And don't forget HeartGold and SoulSilver are coming out! You get Totodile, I'll get Cyndaquil, and then we can trade.

Sounds like a plan!

Well, it's about that time again in this thread to post our Red/Blue/Yellow teams, if you can still remember that is.

My team was:

Blastoise
Pidgeot
Sandslash
Dewgong
Gyarados
Starmie

I miss those days.
(denies having too many Water types on his team. )

I don't remember most of my R/B/Y teams. But IIRC I had Charizard, Pidgeot (name was Swoop I think; we wiped the floor with Agatha ), and an Alakazam named Spell...I don't remember what else, except I put in Articuno and Mewtwo after I got them. Those were the days; no worrying about conflicting Natures when catching Legendaries.

Ha, I can't even rememeber my Platinum team.  I know I have had a lot of eevees (and their evolved forms) simply because they were so versitile.  Not the strongest, but you could spend time keeping them about the same level and switch them out for another that was strong against whatever you were facing.

No Natures ftw!

I remember abusing Missingno too. XD

To think that could've destroyed my cartridge data.

EDIT:

@Misty: Lol you can have a team of only Eevee evolutions now.

There's...7? evolutions for Eevee now?
