Gonna start with Totodile i think, just cause i dont think chikorita is any kind of good and id be to scared of cyndaquil being to fragile. Gonna try to post updates regularly. Any comments or insight for this challenge would be welcomed.
I have used all three starters in HG so I like to think I have certain opinion on whats good.
Personally, my fav starter has to be Chikorita. Granted, offensivly its slightly weak, but defensively, I really loved it in my team. Light Screen + Reflect are so good in Nuzlockes if you have the free moveslot as it helps your team stay alive and take down some of the more frustrating trainers (like Whitney). I think I ran something like Body Slam/Petal Dance/Reflect/Frenzy Plant eventually but I know that having access to Screens, Synthesis for healing, and moves such as Poison Powder or Toxic are pretty cool.
Cyndaquil I have fond memories of because I remember destroying Clair with a Sunlight boosted, Blaze boosted, Specs Boosted, STAB Blast Burn so it really hits like a truck. I did hate its lack of move options but having a fire type is cool in HG as they are pretty rare.
Totodile is prolly the best sweeper out of all of them. it gets cool moves as well like Superpower, Thrash, Ice Fang and Aqua Tail. so yeah pretty cool moves but I ended up not liking it as much because Gyarados could do pretty much the same thing. Still, it was a pretty cool sweeper till I got to the Lake of Rage
