Best "Type" grouping for Starter Pokemon?



Tough choice for me. Grass is kinda a solid mid-choice for me with only one generation being my favorite (Rowlett), but it was such a far and away favorite that gen it jumps out. Meanwhile, Fire and Water kinda go either as the best or worst of their gen.

Water is most consistently good, even if it's kind of a waste by virtue of every gen having plentiful water types.

I agree with Fire being best but does Blaziken outdo a Protean Greninja?

I guess Mega or Speed Boost or whatever would balance things.

I think Torchic is one of the worst. >_>

He's talking competitively. Blaziken was the first starter to be put into the Uber tier list with legendaries like Arceus and Rayquaza.

Yeah, Speed Boost with decent stats is broken as fuck. I wasn't thinking about them competitively speaking. Hmmm

Fire jumped to an early lead but both grass and water are coming along.

For in-game general use, I'd say Water is the best on average, but Fire isn't far behind. For competitive use, Fire had more overall impact on the metagame and a starter that was considered Uber for three generations (Blaziken in gen 5-7), so I give Fire the edge. For my personal opinions on the Pokemon themselves, Fire has more of my favorites, including my overall favorite, the Litten line.

So my vote overall goes to Fire.

Fire, easily.

Cinderace, Tepig, Blaziken, Charizard, Incineroar? It's just unfair lol.

I think it's pretty balanced across the three (in terms of my preference of final evolutions).

Grass - Sceptile, Torterra, Decidueye
Water - Feraligatr, Greninja, Inteleon
Fire - Charizard, Emboar.

Fire type generally has the most runner-ups; Typhlosion, Infernape, Delphox, Incineroar and Cinderace, with the only non fire runner-up being Swampert (and it's a close one as I still like Blaziken).

Design-wise, from my personal tastes:

Gen 1: Bulbasaur (1st), Squirtle (2nd), Charmander (3rd)
Gen 2: Totodile (1st), Chikorita (2nd), Cyndaquil (3rd)
Gen 3: Mudkip (1st), Treecko (2nd), Torchic (3rd) (worst gen starters, yuck)
Gen 4: Piplup (1st), Chimchar (2nd), Turtwig (3rd)
Gen 5: Snivy (1st), Tepig (2nd), Oshawatt (3rd) (although I love all 3, tbh)
Gen 6: Fennekin (1st), Froakie (2nd), Chespin (3rd)
Gen 7: Litten (1st), Rowlett (2nd), Poplio (3rd)
Gen 8: Grookey (1st), Scorbunny (2nd), Sobble (3rd)

Grass: 15 points, Water: 16 points, Fire: 17 points
(lower = better)
They're all really close for me design-wise, but I guess I like Grass the most -- even though Totodile is probably my favorite starter overall. Although basically all third evolutions are awful, Torchic is by far the ugliest.

I haven't played SW/SH so can't judge Galar starters.

Water has 5 good starters, 2 decent ones.
Grass has 3 good startes, 2 decent ones, 2 sucky ones.
Fire has 3 good starters, 3 decent ones, 1 sucky one.

So water gets my vote.

If we're talking about design, Torterra is coolest of all fully evolved starters
