The very first starter of the very first game. Pokemon 001 didn’t become popular just for being the first, however, as its move set and evolutions make it a constant favorite. This little guy's been made into countless forms of merchandise, from plastic toys to overgrown plush dolls straight from the county fair. He's also the fastest-evolving Kanto starter, moving into his final stage four levels sooner than the others.

Evolution: To Ivysaur at 16
