A few things to consider before accepting:
1. I have never played the DS game before (My info will come from online and the card game)
2. This is not a debate where you pick grass because grass has an advantage over water. (do not match them up in battle)
3.You will have to choose a starter type to argue for (grass or Fire)
4. Please be fair no trolling
5. When voting don't be biased.
6. Do not base your arguments off of your own pokemon in your games (i.e. "My level 55 charizard could beat a fraigater easily")
7.Please do some research before accepting.
8.Please choose the type you favor to argue for. Not one that is statistically better


R1:accept
R2: Lay out your argument
R3: Attack other person argument
R4: Defend your argument
R5: Final words

Have fun!

Please put the type you will be arguing for.

I belive water pokemon are the best starters because of these points:

1: it has been proved by science that squirtle (the water type starter of gen 1) is the best starter.

2: The Creators of the starters choose Squirtle (the water type starter of gen 1) over the other two.

3: Water pokemon are the best type (in my opinion)

4: In this top ten list Water is ranked Number 2 (only dragon type is beating it by 4%)

5: Water pokemon are normally the cutest



1: it has been proved by science that squirtle (the water type starter of gen 1) is the best starter.
Water pokemon have been proven to be better here is the link for you to look at:

2: The Creators of the starters choose Squirtle (the water type starter of gen 1) over the other two. Here is an excerpt from this site: (I take no credit for what is writen. this not my own work)

Shigeru Ohmori, on the other hand, states a quite contrary opinion. Ever since the early beginnings of the Pokémon games, he has been the water-type guy. Back inPokémon Red and Blue, he picked Squirtle, while in Ruby and Sapphire Mudkip was the starter he chose. After hearing Ohmori speak about generation 3, Masuda also mentioned his favourite. Coincidentally, it is the only one that got a mega evolution inPokémon X and Y, Torchic. “I’m a huge fan of Torchic. I don’t know if you saw the intro movie of Pokémon X & Y, but I really pushed to get Torchic in there because its one of my favorite Pokémon. And even back with the Game Boy Advance SP, when Nintendo was making that, I actually made a request to them to make a Torchic-colored Game Boy Advanced SP.”

3: Water pokemon are the best type (in my opinion)
Water pokemon are the best because look at the way this works: Fire = strong attack/weak defence. Grass = Strong Defence/weak attack. Water = Both attack and defence are good

4: In this top ten list Water is ranked Number 2 (only dragon type is beating it by 4%)

5: Water pokemon are normally the cutest
Water pokemon are always so cute look at piplup, squirtle, totodile, and frookie. They are all so cute!

In my opinion, it is more beneficial to pick a fire type. Reason being, grass and water types are common place, but finding a good fire type (especially in the earlier games) can be quite difficult.

My point being that if nobody bothered to defend against grass, and someone brought along a grass type, they wouldn't be able to defend as easily. Of course, good trainers always have at least one pok"mon to defend against a certain type - for all types.

Technically, you would want to choose grass, as it is seen as weak and not worth defending against. Grass types are more likely to have dual-typing (e.g. Bulbasaur evolves into grass/poison) allowing more STAB (same-type attack bonus). Additionally, Grass type is strong against water, and if water is seen to be the best, then you have the perfect pok"mon to defend against the people who choose it.
