Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow

How does Blastoise come out on top as the quintessential starter Pokemon, especially against Feraligatr? Both are weak against the exact same attacks and have the same power level. But Blastoise has Fissure, one of the most deadly attacks a part of the Pokemon series. The closest Feraligatr has to Fissure is Hyper Beam. We're taking a leap of faith with this one over the other Pokemon we've selected, and if you disagree we can battle each other someday.
