These Starter Pokémon first appeared in Pokémon Gold and Silver where Professor Elm allows player character to choose one of them. The rival of the player character takes the starter stronger against the player's. The same situation was present in Pokémon Crystal.
In the remakes, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the starters get a redesign. Now the chosen starter can follow the player character by walking behind them and the player character can check their happiness. In this version, Professor Elm gives player character the same starters as well.
