Introducing to one of my favorite starters and probably one of the most underrated Pokémon ever, it's Meganium. People want to say that starting with Chikorita in Johto is the worst decision you could make and makes the game harder. And to that I ask, what's wrong with a challenge? I mean sure Meganium is a tanky supporter, but I like to get those kind of Pokémon in the beginning of the game personally. Even though it's not meant to be an attacker, it has the best chance against Whitney's Miltank and Clair's Kingdra than the other starters. Meganium can also hold it's own against the other gym leaders with its great defense. With the right strategy that is. I also find myself using different Pokémon on my team every time I choose Chikorita. Kind of weird huh? But I ain't complaining. Seriously though, Meganium really is a great Pokémon and I wish more people would understand that.
