In short, no. However in many games you can get one of the starter pokemon and migrate/trade for others.

Turtwig/Chimchar/Piplup
- choose one as starter in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum.

Treecko/Torchic/Mudkip
- starter in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald then migrate
- get one from Steven (at Pokemon Fan Club in Vermillion) in HeartGold/SoulSilver after beating the Elite Four and Red

Chikorita/Cyndaquil/Totodile
- choose one in Emerald after completing the Pokedex then migrate
- starter in HeartGold/SoulSilver

Bulbasaur/Charmander/Squirtle
- starter in FireRed/LeafGreen then migrate
- get one from Professor Oak in HeartGold/SoulSilver after defeating the Elite Four and Red

In HeartGold (and SoulSilver too, I expect) you can get a Mudkip, Treeco, or Torchic in addition to your Chikorita/Cyndaquil/Toyodile from the Hoenn Champion Steven. You do this by first talking to him in the Pokemon Fan Club building in Vermilion.  He will tell you Latias (it may be Latios in SoulSilver, I don't know) is roaming the region.  You then can speak to him in the Silph building in Saffron and he will give you one of the 3 Hoenn starters.

*I don't know if his appearence is effected at all by if you have beat all 16 leaders/Red.
There ar esixteen gym leaders in HG and SS :E>>>>>>>)

It is impossible to find them in the wild.
