You meet Steven, the Hoehn champion, in Kanto. The city I believe is called Saffron City. Next you go to Silph Co. building(that's where I found him after beating the main story). Ummm also I may be kinda wrong, but it's true that you find him in Silph Co. building and he will allow you to choose 1 of 3 Hoehn Pokemon(choose Torchic).
Totodile! Though I'll admit I like all of the designs from the first 2 generations, I feel like the concept of new pokemon got a bit old after that. Though I did learn most of generation 3, it was just tough to find 6 "favorites" for my team. Generation 1 and 2 posed the problem of having to narrow down all of the awesome pokemon to make a team of 6, haha.
Thanks! Out of curiosity, are you planning on making starter icons or is this just random? If you are making icons I would say Bulbasaur or Chikorita because I think you already made an adorable Cyndaquil one.
