Personally it doesnt matter what you pick. Because the first Gym is going to be your weak spot no matter what you pick. So if you pick Tepig youll be fighting water pokemon and if you pick Snivy youll be fighting Fire Pokemon and so on.

I personally like them all, but for my first run through i pick Snivy and then Oshawott then now I'm going with Tepig. Snivy is hard to get through with untill its 3rd evoultion. Oshawott has high HP but a bad movepool to the 2nd evoultion and lastly Tepig has a good movepool and fair HP. So he's my favourite.

But like said before, they are all good, it all depends on your personal opinion and your battle style.

There really is no TRUE answer to this question but: Its your game, play it the way you want to, and pick WHICHEVER starter YOU like.


The first gym does not matter as you can recieve a free Panpour/Pansear/Pansage in Dreamyard.
Personally, I think Snivy is the worst due to his bad move sets. I think both of Oshawott and Tepig have their strong points, but I prefer Oshawott because of it's two weaknesses all the way through, but when Tepig evolves it is Fire and Fighting, which makes it weak to Water, Rock, Ground, Flying and Psychic

the pokemon basher

The first starters are equally as powerful as each other as these pokemon are meant to be strong as they are made for novice trainers who don't have much experience to help them get through the game however i personally think that the best starter is Tepig as Emboar (Tepigs final evolution) has the best statistics and has a good design however with its fire and fighting abilities in pokemon black 2 it does not have as good of an advantage over the gym trainers and leaders as they are all assigned to a certain pokemon type it doesn't have as good as of an advantage as the other starters but if you aren't to focused on the main game and more on wifi battling Emboar will lead you straight to victory!

There's no such thing as a good starter. They're all balanced.
Yeah no.
The Water Starters all have a massive headstart by pure Typing.

Its no different here, they're all shit, but Samurott is probably the strongest.

Yeah, No.
If anything, fire has a head start because at the beginning of the game fire types can wreck most pokemon. Plus, water type is the most common type (google it). Fire types are pretty rare until later in the game. All in all, Tepig FTW.

So many people's opinions are based on the looks of the Pokèmon and "thoughts" of their own, which is great, but makes no sense when answering the OP question, "Best starter Pokèmon?". Hands down, the best starter, statistically and strategically is Snivy. Its speed and defence is much higher than the other two, but like someone said before, it's preference of what role you want in your team.
Snivy will prove difficult within the first few gyms on your journey, but once evolved it will 100% be your lead Pokèmon in your team; quicker and stronger than most off your opponents. Anyways, who doesn't like a good challenge?
Playing through the game with Tepig will be a piece of cake as it has most weaknesses covered, and you don't have to spend huge amounts of time finding and training another fire-type.

    But trading it completely ruins the fun of the game. o-o Blazing through everything with an over powered Pokemon is the worst fun ever. Part of the game is the little challenge.

Yeah totally, You're right about that, and I chose snivy for three reasons:
#1 Snivy is the best looking
#2 Snivy looks like a snake, my favorite animal
#3 Snivy makes the game a challenge

Tepig is best thanks to heat crash nove

The best starter in black and white is Tepig or Oshawott But mostly Tepig. Final evolution has the best stats
