Starter Pokémon
 
In {{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}, the Kanto starters can be caught in the wild via {{DL|QR Scanner|Island Scan}} on [[Melemele Island]].
 
In {{g|Sword and Shield}}, the player receives a Charmander as a gift from [[Leon]] in [[Postwick]] after surpassing him as Champion.
 
In {{game|Yellow}}, due to being based on the {{pkmn|anime}}, Oak instead gives out:
 
=====[[Galar]]=====
In [[Pokémon Sword and Shield]] the player and [[Hop]] receive their starter Pokémon in [[Postwick]] from [[Leon]], the {{pkmn|Champion}} of Galar.
 
{| class="roundy" style="margin:auto; width:auto; text-align:center; background: #{{galar color dark}}; font-size:85%; border: 5px solid #{{galar color}}"
|}
 
The player's friend [[Hop]] will choose the Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's choice. Leon takes the remaining Pokémon into his care, eventually using its final form the Championship Match against the player.
 
====Other notable in-game starters====
* The player character not chosen in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}, {{ga|Ethan}} or {{ga|Lyra}}, will have a {{p|Marill}}.
* In [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon|Pokémon Ultra Sun]], the [[Pokédex]] identifies the [[Ultra Beast]] {{p|Poipole}} as a common choice for a starter Pokémon in [[Ultra Megalopolis|its own world]].
* Hop has a {{p|Wooloo}} that he has owned since before the start of the game, and uses it in his first battle against the player. Over the course of the story, it evolves into {{p|Dubwool}}.
