I found two related questions to this already: Can my starter Pokemon be shiny? and Can you start with Pikachu in Pokemon Go?

I wondered that it is not an even number and so I guessed everybody has a different CP with the starter Pokémon. And in the case it's always the 13, do Pikachu or a shiny starter have a higher or a lower CP?

    Note that your linked "Can my starter Pokemon be shiny?" question is NOT about pokemon go, rather it is about one of the DS versions.

My starter Pokemon had a CP of 10, a buddy of mine had his starter with a CP of 14, so it seems that it differs a bit, but not by much.


my Bulbasaur has a CP of 14, and it's CP bar is at the absolute minimum.

I wonder if it varies depending on which you choose?


I think it depends on which one you choose, and also your location, like a water Pokemon would be more powerful near a source of water.
