Torchic, Mudkip or Treecko
Mudkip is the cutest and quite touch when he is fully evolved but then Torchic looks and is actually very tough when he evolves to Blaziken, but Torchic looks like a chicken. What do you guys think?

No. Not Mudkip. It's got a dual-weakness to Grass-types. I would go with Treecko.

Yes, but to compensate it doesn't have any other weaknesses. At all.

The only actual problem with the Mudkip line in 3rd gen is that because all water attacks are classed as special then it kinda sucks as a water type; instead only succeeding with the physical side such as ground. That and taking hits that aren't grass type.

Blaziken is probably the best option. For one, it gives you fire and fighting in one pokemon and you're going to want both types on the team. Blaziken also has high attack in both areas and good speed. Just got to be careful because its defences are bad.

Treecko... never really like this one. Mainly because I'm not that fond of grass pokemon and, honestly, Treecko has very few options for move choices outside of normal and grass.

Torchic. Hands down and will always be my favourite.

Physical and special moves didn't exist until Gen 4.

I think you mean that a move's physical or special classification was based on the move's elemental type prior to Gen 4.

But yeah, I know that. That's what my statement refers to.

Once we moved to Gen 4 onwards, Swampert becomes quite a beast since moves like Waterfall and Ice Punch actually become viable options.

Treecko
I agree. Sceptile learns false swipe, which is possibly the best move when trying to catch legendarieswithout the master ball

I agree, sceptile will be the best among the three with the false swipe when its on a great level, but for starting, mudkip will be the best since the first gym you will be battling have weakness on water...

Torchic.
Don't question it.
Just choose. Torchic.
Oh so you're questioning it?
Well I chose Torchic and it one hits EVERY SINGLE POKEMON after it evolves into Blaziken, even the ones that are like like 10^ levels above him.
So no more questions?
Good.
Bye.
