I choose soley based off of how much i like the appearance.

I choose based on final evolution.

Crap, I voted that I never vote based on element, but I wish I could retract it. I actually think I tend to go with a Fire starter, usually because there are so many grass and water Pokemon available throughout the course of the game. I always have a hard time finding a fire type in the wild that I like unless it's Arcanine or something.

Edit: And in the case of HG/SS, it lets me choose Bulbasaur or Squirtle when I pick my Gen 1 starter, which is a nice bonus.

I always start with Fire. But I always get the other three starters from trades and make them part of my primary team.

I always choose water because I like water. That said, picking a fire Pokemon is usually the best move, cause there's usually not an opportunity to get another one until much later on, whereas a grass Pokemon can be obtained almost immediately, and a water Pokemon is only one old rod away.

Let me try to recall all the starteers I've used...

Blue - I think I used Squirtle first. Yeah I think I chose him cause Blastoise looked badass. However I also remember starting with Bulbasaur.
Sapphire - Mudkip. Yeah, I have no idea why. Water pokemon trend?
Diamond - Piplup. Wow. Ok, this is a real trend.
SoulSilver - Cyndaquil. C-c-c-combo breaker!!

Whatever's cutest.

First gen I had Yellow so there was no choosing.
Second gen I went with Cyndaquil.
Third gen I went with Torchic (dumb final form, should have went Treecko).
4th gen I went with Piplup (dumb final form, should have went Turtwig).
Didn't play 5th gen but I probably would have went Tepig even though none are very cute imo.

Oh wait, I just remembered I played FireRed but I don't remember who I chose. Probably Charmander.
