They're all fairly balanced, but Infernape has the most advantages. It's faster, has high attack and special attack, and a decent typing as well. Empoleon is a close second, though. In a battle solely between the other starters, it would probably win.

I don't think empoleon can beat infernape because it's faster and can take empoleon out in one shot with close combat or focus blast. empoleon can easily beat tortara with hydro pump and so can infernape with fire blast or blast burn so it can beat both. Hm... I just proved to myself which is better.

Judging by Empoleon's stats, its defense is high enough to take a hit from Infernape. This would allow it to use a water-type move, and if it followed that up with an aqua jet, Infernape would faint.

Because Empoleon can learn ice beam, it could easily take out Torterra in one shot. However, it's worth nothing that water type attacks would only do normal damage to a Torterra. Infernape could probably defeat a Torterra with its better speed and flamethrower.

I've always choose fire-type pokemon as my starter because you can find other pokemon during your journey to act as a backup to the fire-type pokemon.

Torterra is ground so it is a type advantage over infernape and grass to overcome empoleon

All the starters counter each other, landog. Along with Torterra's advantages, Infernape can use a fighting move for Empoleon and a fire move for Torterra, and Empoleon can use an ice move for Torterra and a water move for Infernape.

Torterra, however, is slower than both of them. Empoleon could easily take out Torterra with an ice-type move, and Infernape would only need two turns to kill Torterra.

I aways seem to have a subconscious bias toward Fire Pokemon in the other pokemon games I've played, so I'm going with Infernape.
