I never boxed my starter in-game. I always try to incorporate them in my team. Post-game, at least in my Black and Black 2, I make an entirely new team. --- The World Ends With You 2 in 2012? I sure hope so! Official Shiny Victini of the Pokemon B/W 2 and PMD: MMM boards.

Dumped my Samurott in black 2 because of bad natures and due to more decent waters being available about mid game like Jellicent --- Name one thing I care about and I'll get back to you with the answer

5th gen. Didn't take any of them past the first gym in white, black 2, or white 2.
In HG, I used Giratina/Origin as soon as the Ruins of Alph were available. Don't remember my last DPP playthroughs. --- Go Phillies! Pokemon HeartGold FC: 4941-7651-2764. All standard rules apply (read: Species Clause, Sleep Clause, no Soul Dew [in OU] and OHKO moves banned)

Where's the "I've never dumped my starter" option? I've never abandoned my starter out of principle, but I have to admit this was the first gen where the thought entered my mind...

None. My starter and I always see it through.

In Pearl I just couldn't get past Cynthia's Garchomp and wound up replacing Empoleon with a Floatzel to get past her,
In Platinum I just didn't use a starter, traded in a Manaphy egg I had lying around. Though I wound up not using the Manaohy either because it leveled too slowly for the beginning of the game, at least to me. --- This is why Deoxys is uber: http://i.imgur.com/qHEQt This is a picture of some cute kittens: http://i.imgur.com/wfdOk

I always solo the entire game with my starter, and then start catching more and having more conventional teams in the post game.
