No, because I rarely pick the fire starter. White 2 was the first game I actually used the fire starter on the first playthrough. I have used Cyndaquil and Charmander in the past but that was only after I beat their respective games with the water starters and then decided to play through them again.

I'd be cool with something more along the lines of all 3 starters eventually evolving into Fire, Water, or Grass / Dragon (second type).
I think that would actually work really well if they decided to reveal the "Original Dragon" in the next generation of games.
I think they could easily find a way to make it work and balance it out. Obviously the Grass/Dragon would be at a HUGE disadvantage to Ice attacks... but I'm sure they could include some ability/attacks to help that.
