    You all probably know the gist by now, but for those who don't, there's a tier list website called TierMaker.com where people can make tier lists for their opinions about something. In this case, the starter Pokémon! Nothing about competitive use or how good they are ingame here, just how much you like them all. I'd like to encourage you to make your own, it's fun seeing others' opinions because of how different they are with a game like this!

    For me, S+++ is just the best starter, S is fantastic, A is really good, B is alright, C is either mediocre throughout or really good in some parts and bad in others, D is kinda just below average in general, and F is for Freaking Atrocious.

    https://tiermaker.com/create/starter-first-form <- If you want to make one, here's the link to the one I used for convenience. I'm using this with the first stage being a stand-in for the whole family, as if "if I were given this Pokémon to play through a game with, this is how happy I'd be."

    Surl. I've made my stance on most starters clear, but I can go further into detail if asked

    Here is my list. Some might be surprised at some of the picks. The main things to note:
    1) I like tanky Pokémon
    2) I like varied movepools and fun typings.

    Fun fact: My dislike of chikorita dates back to childhood because I hated the one in the anime. The shallow movepool it gets does not help things.

    I think the quality may have dropped somewhere, but here is my grass-biased tier list:

    As you can probably tell, I personally think Gen IV had the weakest Pokémon designs overall.

    Why do I have so much trouble trying to sort things into tiers? It's just so hard to make these decisions.

    I want to love Charmander and Froakie, but I get annoyed with how popular they are.

    Since it's hard for me to do the overall ranking, I'm doing the ranking based on their types and regions. From there, I do the ranking from most liked to least liked. With that in mind, here are what I have:
