The First Starter You've Picked For Each Generation?

Kanto: Charmander (though I prefer Bulbasaur nowadays)
Johto: Cyndaquil
Hoenn: Torchic?
Sinnoh: Piplup
Unova: Snivy
Kalos: Froakie
Alola: Litten
Galar: Scorbunny
Paldea: N/A (but I think I favor Fuecoco)
Kanto: Bulbasaur (I actually disliked him too much and restarted my save file after reaching the second gym in order to switch to Squirtle)
Johto: Cyndaquil (the BEST starter)
Hoenn: Mudkip
Sinnoh: Piplup
Unova: Tepig (I prefer Oshawott these days)
Kalos: Fennekin
Alola: Litten
Galar: I haven't played SWSH but when I do I'll probably pick Scorbunny
Paldea: Sprigatito
Kanto: Pikachu.I Yellow was my only game from 1999 to like 2003-2004 but when I had the choice in Firered and LeafGreen I took Charmander
Johto: Totodile(My boy!)
Hoenn: Mudkip
Sinnoh: Piplup
Unova: Tepig
Kalos: Froakie
Alola: Litten
Galar: Grookie
Paldea: Quaxly
1. Charmander
2. Totodile
3. Torchic
4. Chimchar
5. Oshawott
6. Fennekin (I think)
7. Rowlett (honestly I don't hate grass types)
8. Scorbunny
9. Quaxly
Kanto (FR): Probably Charmander
Johto (SS): Cyndaquil
Hoenn (Ruby): Torchic
Sinnoh (Diamond): Piplup...I think
Unova: Snivy
Kalos: Fennekin
Alola: Popplio, but traded friends for the other two
Galar: Grookey
Paldea: Sprigatito

And honorable mention to Cyndaqull again for Hisui.
Gen. 1: Squirtle
Gen. 2: Chikorita
Gen. 3: Mudkip
Gen. 4: Piplup
Gen. 5: Tepig
Gen. 6: Chespin
Gen. 7: Rowlet
Gen. 8: Scorbunny
Gen. 9: Quaxly

Let’s see… That gives me 4 Water types, 3 Grass types, and 2 Fire types!
1. Squirtle
2. Cyndaquil
3. Mudkip
4. Turtwig
5. Tepig
6. Froakie
7. Popplio
8. Sobble
9. Quaxly

6 Water, 2 Fire and 1 Grass. I deffo favor Water types, especially in the later generations.

This is an update list, since my earlier list from 2 years ago obviously didn't include Quaxly.
Time for an update since it's been a very long time since I last posted.

Gen 1: Bulbasaur
Gen 2: Cyndaquil
Gen 3: Torchic
Gen 4: Turtwig (though that was before I learned of Sinnoh's lack of Fire Mons back then, otherwise Chimchar)
Gen 5: Tepig
Gen 6: Fennekin
Gen 7: Litten
Gen 8: Scorbunny
LA: Cyndaquil
Gen 9: Fuecoco

As you can see, again, mostly Fire types. That being said, I will, sometimes, use Oshawott in LA, Froakie in XY, and Sprigatito in Scarlet, but I vastly prefer Fire type Starters (Fire is my second favorite type, ironic for someone who hates heat).
