Snivy

In every Black/White walkthrough I see on YouTube, everyone starts with Snivy. And I don't really see why. While I do think Serperior can be awesome, It's only really phenomenal stat is its Speed, and that really only works when you're a sweeper like a fire-type. So, has anyone else stumbled upon to the fact that Snivy is sort of overused? And why do you think so?

I disagree. He gets a lot of unnecessary hate in my opinion.
 
Everybody at the start was saying he's shit and stuff but look at him now! Still shit but now people USE him :D

Yes. Snivy is overused and way overrated.
Nope. Ask any kid you see playing Pokemon in real life and chances are he picked Tepig.
I just really meant on the walkthroughs. But everyone I know picked Snivy.
 
My best friend chose Tepig, while my other one chose Oshawott.

I already decided on Snivy when they revealed all 3, since it was the only cool looking one. Well, one I thoguht was cool looking.

Well, Snivy is the most popular on the Internet, so that's probably why they all use Snivy.

I didn't pick Snivy because it was the most popular at the moment. I picked it because I thought Snivy was a cool Pokemon (plus I love all the grass starters).

I didn't pick Tepig because of the stupid Fire/Fighting typing... -_- Otherwise, I have nothing against picking Tepig.

Didn't pick Oshawott because I had already made my mind up on picking Snivy.

Gallade is awesome.
I picked Snivy because I've never had a grass-type before.

I picked Snivy because I had a Fire-type starter in FireRed and a Water-type starter in SoulSilver, a Water-type starter in Diamond, a Water-type starter in Ruby, and a Fire-type starter in Platinum.
