Below we have detailed the best starter Pokémon in the game.

How to Choose Starter Pokémon

While there are plenty of choices in the game, if you can’t decide which Pokémon suits your gameplay, you can participate in the personality quiz at the start of the game when you enter the mystery dungeon.

This quiz will match the best Pokémon according to the answers you have given in the quiz. This will save you time and you will get the best Pokémon for your style of gameplay. The quiz contains a lot of questions, which is not surprising if you want to get exactly the type of Pokémon you want.

Best Starter Pokémon

The personality test does not usually give you the best Pokémon, but the one that will suit your style. This means that you may be missing out on other powerful start options. The following are the best starter Pokémon in the game:


No surprise that Pikachu is one of the best Pokémon you can have as a beginner and that is because the enemies you face in the early stages of the game are rarely ground type Pokémon. It comes with decent amounts of HP, attack, and defense. On the other hand, its moves are Iron Tail, Fake Out, Electro Ball and Grass Knot.


This Pokémon sits at the top of this list as it is a very powerful starter Pokémon. When you start the game, you will be facing bug type and grass type Pokémon which Charmander is strong against. Charmander comes with 43 hp, 15 attack, and 13 defense. It comes with the Dragon Rage, Bite, Scratch and Flame Burst moves.


You can also go for this Pokémon as it is pretty strong against rock and normal type Pokémon that you will face early on in the game. It has 46 HP, 18 attack, and 13 defense. The moves that this Pokémon has are Strength, Brick Break, Karate Chop and Bullet Punch.


This Water type Pokémon can come in very handy in the early stages of the game. Squirtle comes with 41 HP, 13 attack, and 15 defense. It has the Bite, Tackle, Brick Break, and Water Gun moves.
